Career Summary

Biography

Associate Professor Doan Ngo is an academic pharmacist and a successful basic and translational scientist with multiple important contributions in the cardiovascular and metabolic field. She is a co-director of Cardiometabolic, Vascular and Cardio-oncology Research Groups at the University of Newcastle and HMRI.

Career summary

Doan Ngo is an expert in cardiometabolic pathophysiology with focus on obesity, redox stress and vascular biology. She has made key contributions in the field of adipose tissue biology and angiogenesis and its effects on cardiovascular system.

Doan Ngo received her PhD in Medicine in December 2008. During her PhD, she developed an animal model of aortic stenosis and demonstrated that it can be prevented with ACE inhibitors. She has then demonstrated the effect of vitamin D deficiency on vascular function (Am J Med 2010; >100 citations).

During 2 years postdoctoral training in Boston and in the 3 years that followed, Doan Ngo rapidly gained significant expertise in obesity research and adipose tissue biology with over 10 top-tiered publications. She was one of the first to describe the role of the novel anti-angiogenic factor: VEGF-A165b in obesity and its complications. This work resulted in publications in most prestigious journals, including Circulation, Nature Medicine and Diabetes, and has been cited >200 times since 2014. She has also focussed on novel biomarker discovery and the mechanisms of their release and action in various cardiovascular disease states. This led to a lodgement of 2 patents with 1 more submitted as well as 2 publications and over 10 abstracts presented at major national and international meetings (CSANZ, ESC, AHA). Her research has been featured on the ABC, The Limbic and news.com.au.

She returned to Adelaide in June 2015 and started an independent research group. Within 9 months of return, working on a part-time (0.7 FTE) basis, she has lodged one patent, and 2 pending patent applications and had 3 senior author publications and grants in excess of $700,000. She was also honoured by being nominated as an outstanding cardiovascular research leader at the CSANZ 2015 meeting. As a testament to her abilities as an emerging leader in the cardiovascular field, she was appointed as Associate Professor, University of Newcastle in July 2017. Within 8 months, continuing to work at 0.7 FTE, the Cardiometabolic and Vascular research group, under her co-direction now consists of 1 postdoctoral fellow, 2 research assistants, 3 PhD students and 5 Honours students. In the short time with The University of Newcastle, Doan has been elected to the Faculty Board as a representative of the School of Biomedical Sciences and Pharmacy.

Together with A/Prof Aaron Sverdlov, Doan has established the first-in-Australia bench-to-bedside "Cancer and the Heart" program combining basic and clinical research into cancer therapy-related cardiotoxicity with Calvary Mater Newcastle Hospital-based clinical outpatient service. This program is a collaboration between Cancer Network, Cardiology, Oncology, Haematology and Radiation oncology departments and is supported by the grants from the Heart Foundation of Australia and NSW Ministry of Health.

© 2010 by Nova Science Publishers, Inc. All rights reserved. Perhexiline, 2-(2,2-dicyclohexylethyl)piperidine, was originally developed as a prophylactic anti-anginal drug in the late 1960s. It was initially a popular and effective treatment for angina, having the almost unique property compared to other agents available at that time, of not inducing reductions in blood pressure or heart rate. Despite the initial success, its use diminished markedly due to the occurrence during long-term therapy of poorly understood side effects (neurotoxicity and hepatotoxicity), which later were shown to be associated with high plasma concentrations of perhexiline, occurring in patients with relatively slow hepatic metabolism of the drug. However, therapeutic plasma monitoring and associated dose adjustments have led to perhexiline¿s reintroduction into clinical practice. This new book discusses the benefits of perhexiline in the treatment of cardiovascular disease.

© 2019 the American Physiological Society. Obesity, particularly visceral adiposity, has been linked to mitochondrial dysfunction and increased oxidative stress, which have been suggested as mechanisms of insulin resistance. The mechanism(s) behind this remains incompletely understood. In this study, we hypothesized that mitochondrial complex II dysfunction plays a role in impaired insulin sensitivity in visceral adipose tissue of subjects with obesity. We obtained subcutaneous and visceral adipose tissue biopsies from 43 subjects with obesity (body mass index = 30 kg/m 2 ) during planned bariatric surgery. Compared with subcutaneous adipose tissue, visceral adipose tissue exhibited decreased complex II activity, which was restored with the reducing agent dithiothreitol (5 mM) (P < 0.01). A biotin switch assay identified that cysteine oxidative posttranslational modifications (OPTM) in complex II subunit A (succinate dehydrogenase A) were increased in visceral vs. subcutaneous fat (P < 0.05). Insulin treatment (100 nM) stimulated complex II activity in subcutaneous fat (P < 0.05). In contrast, insulin treatment of visceral fat led to a decrease in complex II activity (P < 0.01), which was restored with addition of the mitochondria-specific oxidant scavenger mito-TEMPO (10 µ M). In a cohort of 10 subjects with severe obesity, surgical weight loss decreased OPTM and restored complex II activity, exclusively in the visceral depot. Mitochondrial complex II may be an unrecognized and novel mediator of insulin resistance associated with visceral adiposity. The activity of complex II is improved by weight loss, which may contribute to metabolic improvements associated with bariatric surgery.

© The Author(s) 2018. Background: Postoperative atrial fibrillation (POAF) is a frequent complication of coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery. This arrhythmia occurs more frequently among patients who receive perioperative inotropic therapy (PINOT). Administration of nitrates with antiplatelet agents reduces the conversion rate of cyclic guanosine monophosphate to guanosine monophosphate. This process is associated with increased concentrations of free radicals, catecholamines, and blood plasma volume. We hypothesized that patients undergoing CABG surgery who receive PINOT may be more susceptible to POAF when nitrates are administered with antiplatelet agents. Methods: Clinical records were examined from a prospectively maintained cohort of 4,124 patients undergoing primary isolated CABG surgery to identify POAF-associated factors. Results: POAF risk was increased among patients receiving PINOT, and the greatest effect was observed when nitrates were administered with antiplatelet therapy. Adjustment for comorbidities did not substantively change the study results. Conclusions: Administration of nitrates with certain antiplatelet agents was associated with an increased POAF risk among patients undergoing CABG surgery. Additional studies are needed to determine whether preventive strategies such as administration of antioxidants will reduce this risk.

The main components of the metabolic syndrome (MS) are abdominal obesity, atherogenic dyslipidemia, raised blood pressure, insulin resistance with or without glucose intolerance, and proinflammatory and prothrombotic states. The clustering of these metabolic risk factors significantly increases the risk of type 2 diabetes and promotes vascular endothelial dysfunction, inflammation, and increased oxidative stress. The net result is an increase in the risk of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease. Therefore, management of MS is of utmost importance, especially considering its rapidly increasing prevalence in a population with rising obesity rates and its significant cardiovascular implications. The primary management of this syndrome involves the correction of the underlying risk factors - obesity, physical inactivity, and an atherogenic diet - with lifestyle modifications including increased physical activity and dietary modification. Smoking cessation also should be encouraged. However, pharmacologic therapies are often required to address cardiovascular risk factors. These agents can be categorized broadly into 1) anorectic agents, 2) insulin-sensitizing agents, 3) statins, and 4) renin-angiotensin system antagonists. Emerging therapies include adipokines, endocannabinoid inhibitors, and metabolic modulators, such as perhexiline and trimetazidine. To date, these therapies have not been shown to normalize the metabolic and cardiovascular burden of MS, and there still is no single therapeutic agent for its management.
