  • Myocardial ischemia-reperfusion (IR) injury is a major contributor to the morbidity and mortality associated with coronary artery disease. Muscular exercise is a countermeasure to protect against IR-induced cardiac injury in both young and old animals. Specifically, regular bouts of endurance exercise protect the heart against all levels of IR-induced injury. Proposed mechanisms to explain the cardioprotective effects of exercise include alterations in coronary circulation, expression of… CONTINUE READING
