Hyperhomocysteinemia (HHC) has been reported to be one of risk factors for cardiovascular disease. We investigated the effects of HHC on blood pressure regulation and its association with damage to the thoracic aorta and imbalance of redox in plasma in rats. Rats were fed a methionine enriched diet (Met diet) or a methionine and cholesterol (Met+Chol diet)(More)
We assessed the effects of rofecoxib on cross-linkage formation in elastin and vaso-regulatory function in rats. After administration of rofecoxib at a dose of 10 mg/kg for 7 weeks to young rats and for 7 and 10 weeks to adult rats, thoracic aortas were isolated. The elastic lamellae in the aortas were disrupted histopathologically in all the treated(More)
We assessed the effects of D-penicillamine (D-PA) on cross-linkages in elastin and vaso-regulatory function in rats. After administration of D-PA at a dose of 100 mg/kg/day for 7 weeks to adult and young rats, the thoracic aortas were isolated. The elastic lamellae in the aorta were disrupted histopathologically in all the treated groups. The content of(More)
