In order to explore the effects of hydrogen sulfide (H2S) on myocardial fibrosis in diabetic rats and its underlying mechanisms, intraperitoneal injections of streptozotocin were used to establish the diabetes models and sodium hydrosulfide (NaHS) was used as an exogenous donor of H2S. Eight weeks later, Van Gieson staining was used to observe pathological… CONTINUE READING
