Diabetic cardiomyopathy (DCM), an independent coronary heart disease that develops in diabetic individuals, is characterized by changes in the myocardial structure and function. The aim of the present study was to investigate the protective effect of rutin on DCM in a streptozotocin-induced diabetic rat model. Rutin was orally administrated at a dose of 8(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effects of salvianolic acid B (SA-B) on cardiovascular endothelial cell function and platelet activation during myocardial ischemia-reperfusion in rabbits. METHODS A total of 24 New Zealand white rabbits were randomly divided into sham-operated group, ischemia-reperfusion group (untreated group) and SA-B group. The hearts of(More)
Lipoprotein-associated phospholipase A2 (Lp-PLA2) is an enzyme that hydrolyzes oxidized phospholipids to generate bioactive proatherogenic products. Nonculprit lesions have been assumed to contribute to the pathogenesis of recurrent acute coronary syndrome (ACS). The role of LP-PLA2 in the progression of nonculprit coronary lesions after successful(More)
The aim of the present study was to examine the post-infarct acute effect of adenosine-5'-triphosphate (ATP) on myocardial infarction (MI) size as well as its precise molecular mechanism. Sixty New Zealand white male rabbits were exposed to 40 min of ischemia followed by 180 min of reperfusion. The rabbits were intravenously administered 3 mg/kg of ATP (ATP(More)
