Press Information

Raising awareness about PLN is a collaborative effort, and the media plays a crucial role in reaching more people and informing carriers in a timely manner. We would like to connect with you to develop articles, podcasts, or other forms of content. Our team is here to assist and provide insights.

Important Information:



Current Status:

Currently, there is no curative treatment for the PLN mutation. Treatments are tailored to each patient to alleviate symptoms. Some individuals receive medications, while others may need an Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD) to address rhythm disturbances. In extreme cases, a left ventricular assist device (LVAD) or ultimately a heart transplant may be necessary.

Mutated phospholamban proteins (PLN) are produced from the mutated PLN gene in the DNA. Many potential PLN therapies being researched target specific points in this production process. For example, researchers are investigating ways to “repair” the mutation in the DNA using DNA editing techniques such as CRISPR-Cas or Prime Editing.

There are also explorations of possibilities to intercept the faulty mRNA using short interfering RNA, short hairpin RNA, or antisense RNA. This could prevent the production of the faulty PLN protein. To learn more about PLN and its origins, click here.
