Based on the previous studies revealing antioxidant activities of a water-soluble polysaccharide (AEP-w1) from the root bark of Aralia elata, the present study was designed to determine if chronic administration of AEP-w1 could reduce ischemic reperfusion (IR) induced myocardial injury. Wistar rats were given three different doses of AEP-w1 (50, 100 and… CONTINUE READING
