Inhibition of the renin-angiotensin system (RAS) has been shown to be beneficial in providing cardioprotective effects in humans, but the mechanism of these effects is not well understood. In this study, we examined the effects and mechanism of RAS inhibitors on ischemia/reperfusion (IR)-induced myocardial injury in rats. Rats were randomly divided into five groups and treated with vehicle (C), angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor (ACE-I), angiotensin II type 1 receptor antagonist (AT1-A… CONTINUE READING
