How Cardiogen May Regulate Fibroblasts and Stimulate Tissue Repair

by | Sep 5, 2022 | Research

Cardiogen is a bioregulatory peptide that can affect fibroblasts, cells that regulate tissue repair and scar formation throughout the body. Although the focus of Cardiogen peptide has previously been on its impact on cardiovascular diseases, research shows that it can modulate fibroblast activities, hence the name. Preliminary Cardiogen studies in mouse models show that the peptide can increase tumor cell death.


Potential Functions of Cardiogen


Cardiogen Impacts on Cancer Cells

  • A study on mice with M-1 sarcoma found that after Cardiogen administration, tumor cells had higher levels of Apoptosis or programed cell death[1]. During this process, the body kills old cells or cells that have the potential to turn cancerous. The presence of hemorrhagic necrosis and activation of tumor cell apoptosis caused a dose-dependent inhibition of M-1 sarcoma growth after Cardiogen peptide injection[2]. The measurements of proliferative activities show that the inhibition of tumor growth is not caused by the peptide’s cytostatic effect on the tumor. It is worth noting that the impact is dose-dependent, indicating that the biological product is absolute.
  • Cardiogen induces apoptosis in tumor cells and may play a subtle role in tumor selection due to their increased and unusual vascular supply placing Cardiogen at the forefront of potential cancer adjuvants. Surprisingly, if Cardiogen peptide improves the efficacy of standard cancer treatments, it may be a critical addition to the cancer-fighting arsenal.


Cardiogen’s Impact on the Heart

  • Cardiogen stimulates cardiomyocyte proliferation while inhibiting fibroblast growth and development in the heart, resulting in less scar formation and better long-term cardiac remodeling outcomes after heart failure. Furthermore, Cardiogen can reduce p53 protein expression, lowering apoptosis rates.


The Function of Cardiogen Peptide in the Prostate

  • Cardiogen, in conjunction with peptides with similar functions, has been shown in micropropagation studies to modulate the expression of signaling factors in prostate fibroblasts[3]. Signaling factors are factors that promote the development and progression of prostate cancer. These levels are critical in establishing a favorable microenvironment within tumors, which contributes to the development and progression of prostate cancer. According to research, signaling factors are regulated in senescent and aging fibroblasts, which explains why prostate cancer is common in older men but rare in younger men[4].
  • Research shows that Cardiogen can stabilize signaling molecule levels to match or improve what is in young cultures. As a result, Cardiogen has the potential to be an essential adjuvant in the prevention and control of prostate cancer progression.


Other Benefits of Cardiogen Peptide

  • Cardiogen boosts the body’s adaptability to the environment through immunity.
  • The peptide improves the elasticity of reformed heart tissues qualitatively.
  • Cardiogen peptide promotes heart muscle resistance to viral infection complications.
  • It increases stamina in physical and mental overloads.
