Modeling of Heart Failure in Zebrafish

Heart failure
Heart failure is a silent yet deadly disease that has steadily risen this past decade due to the increase in the aging population. An alarming trend of heart failure in the young population has also been observed. To study this disease and find treatments or drugs for it, it is necessary to create a pre-clinical model. We describe the methods of creating a zebrafish model in heart failure along with its testing parameters.
