Pravastatin restored the infarct size-limiting effect of ischemic preconditioning blunted by hypercholesterolemia in the rabbit model of myocardial infarction.


OBJECTIVES We tested to find out whether pravastatin restores the infarct size (IS)-limiting effect of ischemic preconditioning (IP) and if it has any effect on the IP-induced activation of adenosine producing enzyme ecto-5'-nucleotidase which plays a key role in the IP-induced cardioprotection. BACKGROUND The IS-limiting effect of IP is blunted by… (More)
