Research interests

Dr. Torre-Amione is the director of the Heart Failure Research Laboratory at Houston Methodist, and conducts research examining the mechanisms of immune activation and inflammation as it relates to myocardial dysfunction in the areas of heart failure and cardiac transplantation. The doctor and his colleagues have conducted numerous studies that suggest novel immune modulatory therapies for the treatment of heart failure and transplant patients. Dr. Torre-Amione led the first two FDA-approved trials of Celacade with impressive results, and a Phase III trial is underway. Other studies underway in the Heart Failure Research Laboratory are investigating additional immune response pathways that contribute to the progression of heart failure, including the role of heat shock proteins and cardiac mast cells.
