Icariin protects H9c2 cardiomyocytes from lipopolysaccharide‑induced injury via inhibition of the reactive oxygen species‑dependent c‑Jun N‑terminal kinases/nuclear factor-κB pathway.

Abstract

The inflammatory response is involved in the pathogenesis of the most common forms of heart disease. Icariin has a number of pharmacological actions, including anti‑inflammatory, anti‑oxidative and anti‑apoptotic effects. However, the role of icariin in cardiac inflammation has remained elusive. In the present study, H9c2 rat cardiomyocytes were stimulated… (More)
