Chronic treatment with apelin, losartan and their combination reduces myocardial infarct size and improves cardiac mechanical function

Abbasloo, E, Najafipour, H, Vakili, A (2020) Chronic treatment with apelin, losartan and their combination reduces myocardial infarct size and improves cardiac mechanical function. Clin Exp Pharmacol Physiol 47:393-402. doi: 10.1111/1440-1681.13195

Objective: To determine the effect of chronic pretreatment with apelin, losartan and their combination on ischemia-reperfusion (IR) injury in the isolated perfused rat heart and on the expression of apelin-13 receptor (APJ) and angiotensin type 1 receptor (AT1R) in the myocardium.

Summary: Chronic pretreatment with apelin along with AT1R antagonist had more protective effects against IR injury.
