BACKGROUND Giant cell myocarditis is a rapidly progressive and often fatal condition without a clear etiology or treatment. A better understanding of giant cell myocarditis pathogenesis is critical to developing treatments to prevent progression and reverse damage. We compared the gene expression of giant cell myocarditis with that of nonfailing hearts. METHODS Left ventricular samples from two giant cell myocarditis patients harvested during ventricular assist device placement and six unused… CONTINUE READING
