Febuxostat is a selective inhibitor of xanthine oxidase (XO). XO is a critical source of reactive oxygen species (ROS) during myocardial ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury. Inhibition of XO is therapeutically effective in I/R injury. Evidence suggests that febuxostat exerts antioxidant effects by directly scavenging ROS. The present study was performed to(More)
AIMS To propose and validate a novel approach to determine the optimal angiographic viewing angles for a selected coronary (target) segment from X-ray coronary angiography, without the need to reconstruct the entire coronary tree in three-dimensions (3D), such that subsequent interventions are carried out from the best view. METHODS AND RESULTS The(More)
Hypoxia/reoxygenation (H/R) is an important in vitro model for exploring the molecular mechanisms and functions of autophagy during myocardial ischemia/reperfusion (I/R). Alpha-lipoic acid (LA) plays an important role in the etiology of cardiovascular disease. Autophagy is widely implicated in myocardial I/R injury. We assessed the degree of autophagy by(More)
Resveratrol is able to protect myocardial cells from ischemia/reperfusion‑induced injury. However, the mechanism has yet to be fully elucidated. In the present study, it is reported that resveratrol has a critical role in the control of Ca2+ overload, which is the primary underlying cause of ischemia/reperfusion injury. Hypoxia/reoxygenation (H/R) treatment(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effect of carvacrol pretreatment on myocardial ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) injury and its underlying mechanisms. METHODS Wild-type male C57 BL/6 mice were randomized into 5 groups (n=13), namely the sham-operated group, vehicle (DMSO in saline)+ I/R group, carvacrol (20 mg/kg) + I/R group, carvacrol (40 mg/kg) + I/R group, and(More)
Liraglutide, a glucose-lowering agent used to treat type 2 diabetic mellitus is reported to exert cardioprotective effects in clinical trials and animal experiments. However, the cardioprotective mechanism of liraglutide on diabetic cardiomyopathy has not been fully illustrated. The present study was performed to investigate whether liraglutide alleviates(More)
Arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC), a predominantly familial and autosomal dominant inherited heart muscle disorder, is pathologically characterized by progressive right ventricular myocardial atrophy and fibrofatty replacement and clinically by ventricular arrhythmias with left bundle branch block morphology. Symptoms poorly reflect(More)
BACKGROUND Coats' disease is an uncommon form of retinal telangiectasis, and the identification of novel proteins that contribute to the development of Coats' disease is useful for improving treatment efficacy. Proteomic techniques have been used to study many eye diseases; however, few studies have used proteomics to study the development of Coats'(More)
Puerarin (Pur), which is the major bioactive ingredient extracted from the root of Pueraria lobata (Willd.) Ohwi, has been demonstrated to relieve myocardial ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury. Macroautophagy, or autophagy, is an evolutionarily conserved cellular catabolic mechanism that is involved in myocardial I/R injury. The present study evaluated the(More)
