Cardioprotective effects of short-term caloric restriction are mediated by adiponectin via activation of AMP-activated protein kinase.
* Garlic has numerous cardioprotective effects, including preventing or improving atherosclerosis, high cholesterol, and high blood pressure.
On the basis of the above indicators, the authors concluded that H[sub]2S possessed cardioprotective effects in the setting of CP/CPB and this advantage was attributed to the attenuation of caspase-independent apoptosis and autophagy.[57]
We previously discovered that DEX exerts cardioprotective effects against myocardial I/R injury in normal rats via the PI3K/Akt/GSK-3[beta] pathway [13]; herein, we explored the potential cardioprotective effects in diabetic rats.
Because the cardioprotective effects of Kae were found to be reversed by cotreatment with LY294002 (a PI3K inhibitor) or TDZD-8 (a GSK-3[beta] inhibitor), we further examined the regulation of Kae on the PI3K signaling pathway.
The potential roles of several molecules as sirtuin activators have been studied due to their cardioprotective effects, which have been described both in vitro and in vivo (Figure 3).
Previous studies have illustrated cardioprotective effects of many drugs through the activation of RISK pathway [31-34].
Cannabinoid administration for medicinal purposes has been trialled in the treatment of multiple disorders including acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, glaucoma, and Parkinson's disease [15] and initial cardioprotective effects have been demonstrated in an atherosclerotic murine model [16].
To elucidate the mechanisms involved in the cardioprotective effects of AJLE, we analyzed the redox-sensitivity of AJLE in ISP-induced cardiac injury.
The present study investigated whether RIPC and further extension of this method provides cardioprotective effects on ischemic injury in adults undergoing on-pump CAGB.
Studies evaluating the cardioprotective effects of adding alirocumab and evolocumab to statin therapy are ongoing.
The ADRs consist of four subtypes ([A.sub.1], [A.sub.2A], [A.sub.2B], and [A.sub.3]ADR) and all of the subtypes play roles in the cardioprotective effects mediated by adenosine [3,4,8,15,16].
"Because the exact mechanisms linking exercise to intermediate health outcomes are not clear, we also wanted to examine the effects of exercise on intermediate biomarkers that may potentially mediate the cardioprotective effects of exercise."
Ischemic preconditioning experiments in animal models have demonstrated significant cardioprotective effects and reductions in the size of myocardial infarcts.
