Magnolol, a potent antioxidant from Magnolia officinalis, attenuates intimal thickening and MCP-1 expression after balloon injury of the aorta in cholesterol-fed rabbits


Background Restenosis is a common complication after balloon angioplasty. A number of cytokines, chemotactic factors and growth factors may be involved. Several antioxidants have been shown to inhibit intimal thickening after balloon injury in hyperlipidemic animals. Objectives The effects of magnolol on the expression of monocyte chemotactic protein-1 (MCP… (More)
