The cannabinoid receptors, CB1 and CB2, are expressed in the heart, but their role under pathological conditions remains controversial. This study examined the effect of CB1 receptor blockade on cardiovascular functions after experimental MI and in experimental metabolic syndrome. MI was induced in Wistar rats by permanent ligation of the left coronary(More)
Thirty-six cases of retroperitoneal leiomyosarcoma form the basis for this retrospective clinicopathologic study. This group comprised 24 females (67%) and 12 males (33%), whose ages ranged from 12 to 94 years (median, 60 years.). The clinical presentation, invariably nonspecific, consisted of pain or weight loss, typically associated with a palpable(More)
Left ventricular (LV) remodeling is the main reason for the development of progressive cardiac dysfunction after myocardial infarction (MI). This study investigated whether stimulation of the angiotensin type 2 receptor is able to ameliorate post-MI cardiac remodeling and what the underlying mechanisms may be. MI was induced in Wistar rats by permanent(More)
The angiotensin AT2-receptor mediates tissue protective actions. Its regenerative potential has been tested in multiple disease models including models of myocardial infarction. These studies used different experimental approaches in order to detect AT2-receptor-related effects such as AT2-receptor deficiency or overexpression, treatment with an(More)
Background Myocarditis is an inflammatory cardiac disease with a wide range of symptoms and various etiologies. The diagnostic workup and the treatment of myocarditis remain highly controversial. Therefore, there is a high demand for reliable animal models. Experimental autoimmune myocarditis (EAM) represents a model of human myocarditis and heart failure.(More)
The (pro)renin receptor [(P)RR] is crucial for cardio-renal pathophysiology. The distinct molecular mechanisms of this receptor are still incompletely understood. The (P)RR is able to interact with different signalling proteins such as promyelocytic leukemia zinc finger protein (PLZF) and Wnt receptors. Moreover, domains of the (P)RR are essential for(More)
AIM We aimed to investigate the histological and clinical presentations of experimental autoimmune myocarditis (EAM) induced by different immunization schemes. METHODS Male young Lewis rats were divided into five groups immunized by porcine myocardial myosin: subcutaneously (SC) 2 mg (in two 1-mg doses on day 0 and 7), 0 mg (sham group) subcutaneously(More)
