Short-term use of telmisartan attenuates oxidation and improves Prdx2 expression more than antioxidant β-blockers in the cardiovascular systems of spontaneously hypertensive rats

Abstract

Reactive oxygen species (ROS) and antioxidant enzymes are required to maintain homeostasis. The loss of this balance can cause excessive ROS production and damage to the cardiovascular tissues. Angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARBs) and β-blockers with antioxidant effects may inhibit ROS in the cardiovascular system. In this study, we directly compared the… (More)
