AIM Observational and clinical studies suggest different responses upon sex hormone replacement therapy in ischaemic heart disease. Few studies, however, have examined the impact of oestrogen receptor-dependent mechanisms on the extent of injury after myocardial infarction (MI). Therefore, we set out to evaluate the effect of oestrogen (E2) replacement on infarct size and remodelling, and the respective role of the oestrogen receptors (ER)alpha and -beta in this process, using ERalpha- and… CONTINUE READING
