Acute adiponectin delivery is cardioprotective in the aged female rat heart.

Abstract

AIM The aged, post-menopausal female heart is characterized by reduced ischemic tolerance, and few therapies currently exist to limit ischemic damage. Adiponectin (APN), a cytokine produced in adipose tissue, limits infarct size and improves functional recovery after ischemia/reperfusion injury in adult hearts.
