Dietary iron restriction prevents hypertensive cardiovascular remodeling in Dahl salt-sensitive rats.

Abstract

Iron accumulation is associated with the pathogenesis of several cardiovascular diseases. However, the preventive effects of iron restriction (IR) against cardiovascular disease remain obscure. We investigated the effects of dietary IR on cardiovascular pathophysiology and the involved mechanism in Dahl salt-sensitive rats. Dahl salt-sensitive rats were… (More)
