Scans of failing hearts in patients reveal an energy crisis

R. John Davenport

Abstract: Even with a full tank of gas, a car won't run if the fuel doesn't get to the engine. Similarly, a new study reveals that a breakdown in an energy delivery process might spur heart failure. The study uses a new method that tracks metabolism in humans and could provide a novel way to test therapies.
