Abstract

Beginning with the studies published by Sams and colleagues' in 1966, there has been a growing list of effects of dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) on the myocardium. Many of the studies of cardiac effects of DMSO focused on its use in high (multimolar) concentrations to reduce freeze-thaw-induced injury to the heart, with the ultimate goal being long-term… (More)
