Inhibition of Na+/H+‐exchanger with sabiporide attenuates the downregulation and uncoupling of the myocardial β‐adrenoceptor system in failing rabbit hearts
TLDR
From the present data, additional studies are needed to fully establish the cause‐and‐effect relationship between NHE‐1 inhibition and the restoration of the myocardial βAR system and/or whether the improved LV function resulted in less activation of the sympathetic nervous system and by this in a reduced stimulation of the βAR‐AC system.
Regulation and role of the presynaptic and myocardial Na+/H+ exchanger NHE1: effects on the sympathetic nervous system in heart failure.
TLDR
NHE1 is a potential candidate for targeted intervention to suppress this feedback loop of sympathetic activation with excessive norepinephrine release from and reduced NE reuptake into sympathetic nerve endings, causing arrhythmias and cardiac dysfunction.
Sgk1 sensitivity of Na+/H+ exchanger activity and cardiac remodeling following pressure overload
TLDR
Observations point to an important role for SGK1 in cardiac remodeling and development of heart failure following an excessive work load.
Chronic NHE-1 blockade induces an antiapoptotic effect in the hypertrophied heart.
TLDR
Data is presented demonstrating that chronic NHE-1 inhibition with cariporide decreases both hypertrophy and apoptosis susceptibility in the spontaneously hypertensive rat heart.
The role of NHE-1 in myocardial hypertrophy and remodelling.
Increased sarcolemmal Na+/H+ exchange activity in hypertrophied myocytes from dogs with chronic atrioventricular block
TLDR
It is concluded that compensated cardiac hypertrophy in cAVB dogs is accompanied with an increased sarcolemmal NHE-1 activity, which in conjunction with unchanged activity of the other acid-base transporters will raise the intracellular Na+ in hypertrophied c AVB myocytes.
Mechanisms Underlying Development of Cardiomyocyte Hypertrophy via Na–H Exchange Stimulation
TLDR
The beneficial effects of NHE-1 inhibitors reflect direct antiremodelling/antihypertrophic effects on the heart which occur via a number of intrACEllular processes including diminution of intracellular sodium accumulation, prevention of mitochondrial remodelling and reduction in the calcium-dependent activation of the hypertrophic calcineurin pathway.
Regulation of the Na+/H+ exchanger in the healthy and diseased myocardium
TLDR
Elucidation of the regulatory pathway of NHE1 in the myocardium could lead to novel approaches to reduce heart hypertrophy and ischemia–reperfusion damage.

Na(+)/H(+) exchange inhibition attenuates hypertrophy and heart failure in 1-wk postinfarction rat myocardium.
TLDR
These studies suggest that the early adaptive hypertrophic response of surviving myocytes is dependent on NHE activity, and it is attractive to suggest that NHE inhibition could be an effective therapeutic strategy for prevention of postinfarction remodeling, independent of infarct size or afterload reduction.
Inhibition and reversal of myocardial infarction-induced hypertrophy and heart failure by NHE-1 inhibition.
TLDR
It is suggested that NHE-1 inhibition attenuates and reverses postinfarction remodeling and heart failure with a treatment delay of up to 4 wk after infarction, independent of infarct size or afterload reduction.
Regression of Hypertensive Myocardial Fibrosis by Na+/H+ Exchange Inhibition
TLDR
The present data allow us to conclude that in the SHR the administration of an NHE-1 inhibitor for 2 or 3 months leads to the normalization of collagen type I synthesis, myocardial collagen volume fraction, and stiffness.
Inhibition of Na+-H+ Exchange Prevents Hypertrophy, Fibrosis, and Heart Failure in &bgr;1-Adrenergic Receptor Transgenic Mice
TLDR
It is concluded that the cardiac Na+-H+ exchanger 1 is essential for the detrimental cardiac effects of chronic &bgr;1-receptor stimulation in the heart.
Beneficial effect of amiloride, A Na(+)-H+ exchange blocker, in a murine model of dilated cardiomyopathy.
TLDR
It is suggested that amiloride prevents the development of myocardial hypertrophy and left ventricular dilatation in DCM in association with a reduction of AII.
Effects of BIIB513 on ischemia-induced arrhythmias and myocardial infarction in anesthetized rats
TLDR
The cardioprotective ability of NHE-1 inhibition during myocardial ischemia and reperfusion is demonstrated by reducing serious ventricular arrhythmias and myocardian infarct size in anesthetized rats.
Aminoguanidine inhibits mitogen-activated protein kinase and improves cardiac performance and cardiovascular remodeling in failing hearts of salt-sensitive hypertensive rats
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the selective iNOS inhibitor, AG, may be at least a potential therapeutic strategy for treating CHF and cardiovascular remodeling.
