Cardiac remodeling induced by smoking: concepts, relevance, and potential mechanisms
(Inflammation & Allergy Drug Targets, 2012)
Cardiac or ventricular remodeling is characterized by molecular, cellular, and interstitial alterations that lead to changes in heart size, mass, geometry and function in response to a given insult. Currently, tobacco smoke ...
Myocardial Remodeling In Hypertension
(NATURE PUBLISHING GROUPLONDON, 2015)
Role of vitamin D in the cardiac remodeling induced by tobacco smoke exposure
(Elsevier B.V., 2012-03-22)
Impact of the length of vitamin D deficiency on cardiac remodeling.
This study was aimed to evaluate the influence of vitamin D (VD) deficiency on cardiac metabolism, morphology, and function. Thus, we investigated the relationship of these changes with the length of the nutrient restriction. ...
Autophagy as a therapeutic target in cardiovascular disease
The epidemic of heart failure continues apace, and development of novel therapies with clinical efficacy has lagged. Now, important insights into the molecular circuitry of cardiovascular autophagy have raised the prospect ...
