Hopkins and Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy



Johns Hopkins, the Quaker merchant, banker and businessman, left $7 million in 1873 to create The Johns Hopkins University and The Johns Hopkins Hospital


Over $6.5 billion in operating revenues

  • More than 34,000 combined full-time equivalent employees; among largest private employers in Maryland
  • Annual outpatient visits: over 2.6 million
  • Annual Emergency Department visits: over 294,000
  • Annual hospital admissions: over 114,000
  • Annually ranked #1 in NIH funding for U.S. medical schools ($439 million)  
  • •Medical and doctoral students: over 1,400  
  • •Full-time faculty: over 2,550
  • •Part-time faculty: over 1,290


Pioneered surgery for breast cancer (1889)

•First major medical school in the United States to admit women (1893)

•First to develop renal dialysis (1912)

•First direct heart surgery (blue baby operation,1944) u

•Developed cardiopulmonary resuscitation – CPR (1958)

•Invented first implantable, rechargeable pacemaker for cardiac disorders (1972)

•Pioneered complex surgeries for separating twins joined at the head (1987)

•Among the first to isolate and cultivate human embryonic stem cells (1998)

•Discovered that in-vitro fertilization (IVF) appears to be associated with a rare combination of birth defects characterized by excessive growth of various tissues (2002)

•Developed the first biologic pacemaker for the heart, paving the way for a genetically engineered alternative to implanted electronic pacemakers (2002)

  • Physiologic hypertrophy – Athlete’s Heart
  • Hypertension related hypertrophy
  • Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy
  • Infiltrative cardiomyopathy

hypertrophic cardiomyopathy hcm1
Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM)
  • Inherited cardiomyopathy
  • Mutation in genes encoding sarcomeric proteins
  • Diverse clinical presentation
  • Common (1:500)

typical features of hcm
Typical Features of HCM
  • Hypertrophy (>1.5 cm)
    • Any distribution
      • Concentric vs. asymmetric
      • Basal vs. mid vs. apical vs. diffuse
    • Severity
      • Normal to severe
      • (6.0 cm- largest reported)
  • Systolic anterior motion of mitral valve
  • Outflow tract gradient
    • Present vs. absent
    • Rest vs. provocation
    • Day to day variation

Ommen, Circ, 2003

Any or all features could be ABSENT

hypertrophic cardiomyopathy


  • Distinguish HCM from other causes of hypertrophy (hypertensive heart disease, athlete’s heart)
  • Risk stratification of sudden death
  • Preclinical diagnosis
  • Needed:
  • Non-invasive diagnostic tools (EP, imaging, genomic, proteomic computational) to reliably diagnose HCM and distinguish it from other pathologies

Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy

goals of hcm program at jhu
Goals of HCM program at JHU
  • Detailed characterization of phenotype using advanced imaging (2D echo strain, MRI) and EKG
  • Discovery of causal or modifier genes in HCM (miRNA genes)
  • Improved understanding of HCM pathophysiology using transgenic mouse models
  • Generation of computational models to assess sudden death risk and understand arrhythmias
  • Design metabolism-based therapies and imaging for preclinical diagnosis/treatment of HCM

Results: Step1 bioinformatics analysis

Potential causative or modifier miRNAs for HCM were identified

Fig2. Literature search was performed in two steps: 1)miRNAs regulation dysfunction were observed in humanheart (hypertrophy, failing or cardiomyopathy) and In vitro/vivo experiments confirmed their role in cardiac pathological process: hypertrophy, fibrosis and apoptosis 2)Confirm their role in other phenotype secondary to HCM, like metabolic deficiency and electrophysiological dysfunction
