Submission + - Open Source Drug Discovery Prompts a Fundamental Heart Failure Breakthrough (sciencecodex.com)

An anonymous reader writes: Case-Western researchers, led by Saptarsi Haldar MD., have made a fundamental discovery that could prevent heart failure after reviewing the "chemical recipe" for a cancer-treating molecule made open source by Jay Bradner MD. (whose TED Talk articulates the open source approach to drug discovery: http://www.ted.com/talks/jay_bradner_open_source_cancer_research.html) This cross-discipline discovery, which was published in the August 2013 issue of CELL, is a fundamental breakthrough in heart failure research, and highlights the value of an open source approach outside of software development. Now, if only drug companies could be held to the same ideals!
