Doxorubicin is a frequently used anticancer drug, but its therapeutic benefit is limited by acute and chronic cardiotoxicity, often leading to heart failure. The mechanisms underlying doxorubicin-induced cardiotoxicity remain unclear. It was previously shown in men that doxorubicin leads to increased endothelin-1 plasma levels. In addition, cardiac-specific overexpression of endothelin-1 in mice resulted in a cardiomyopathy resembling the phenotype following doxorubicin administration. We… CONTINUE READING
