The purpose of this study was to evaluate the influence of zafirlukast (Z), quercetin (Q) and their combination on baroreflex sensitivity (BRS), endothelin-1 (E1) plasma concentration and the severity of ventricular arrhythmias (VA) occurring during myocardial infarction (MI). In anaesthetized Wistar rats, MI was induced by ligation of the left anterior(More)
An increasing number of studies suggest that current pharmacotherapy used in Alzheimer's disease (AD), in addition to having a symptomatic effect, also may interact with the ongoing neuropathological processes in the brain. The oldest hypothesis explain the cause of the AD is the "cholinergic hypothesis", which states, that AD begins as a deficiency in the(More)
Anti-ischemic effects of NO releasing by nitroglycerin (NTG) and the release of calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) are involved in the decrease of vascular remodeling in different cardiovascular diseases. Using a nitrate-free period is still generally required to prevent nitrate tolerance and should be used as the first-line option to maintain adequate(More)
An increasing number of studies suggest that the pharmacology and therapeutic potential of a family of imidazoline receptors continues to generate substantial interest of investigators. This review analyzes the functional role of imidazoline receptors, their subpopulation, distribution in the central and peripheral nervous system and action of related(More)
The experimental and clinical data concerning pathogenesis of the atherosclerosis are summarized and analyzed in this article. Major concepts that explain initiation and progressive growth of atherosclerosis such as lipid infiltrations, response to disturbing factors, "response on the keeping of particles" and inflammatory processes are discussed. These(More)
Experiments on rabbits with epinephrine-induced damage to the heart showed that progression of necrotic degenerative processes in the myocardium is augmented by increased content of prostaglandin F(2alpha)and predominance of constrictive over vasodilatory effects in the E and F(2alpha)prostaglandin system. Twenty-four hours after injection of epinephrine we(More)
The problem of formation of cardiac arrhythmia such as "torsades de pointes" because of prolongation of the QT interval is discussed in this article. It is established 2 forms of the long QT syndrome, a congenital and an acquired one. The congenital form has seven different known predisposing genes, six of which are associated with the myocardial ion(More)
Combination of preventive and repeated (after 12 h) injections of zafirlucast in a daily dose of 40 mg/kg to animals with epinephrine-induced heart injury essentially decreased the content of leukotriene C(4), but did not prevent the increase of leukotriene B(4)content in the blood, though decreased its content in comparison with the level observed 24 h(More)
Oligocrine is a preparation of vegetable origin characterized by anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, immunomodulating properties. Our study shows that administration of L-thyroxine injections (irrespective of the duration) results in elevated synthesis of thyroid hormones and intensification of oxidative stress in experimental animals. These changes are(More)
