Tobacco Smoke Induces Ventricular Remodeling Associated with an Increase in NADPH Oxidase Activity
Background: Recent studies have assessed the direct effects of smoking on cardiac remodeling and function. However, the mechanisms of these alterations remain unknown. The aim of this study was to investigate de role of ...
Cardiac remodeling induced by smoking: concepts, relevance, and potential mechanisms
(Inflammation & Allergy Drug Targets, 2015)
Lifetime Overproduction of Circulating Angiotensin-(1-7) Attenuates Deoxycorticosterone Acetate-Salt Hypertension-Induced Cardiac Dysfunction and Remodeling
(LIPPINCOTT WILLIAMS & WILKINS, 2010)
We evaluated the development of arterial hypertension, cardiac function, and collagen deposition, as well as the level of components of the renin-angiotensin system in the heart of transgenic rats that overexpress an ...
Aerobic exercise training in heart failure: impact on sympathetic hyperactivity and cardiac and skeletal muscle function
(Associação Brasileira de Divulgação Científica, 2011)
Heart failure is a common endpoint for many forms of cardiovascular disease and a significant cause of morbidity and mortality. Chronic neurohumoral excitation (i.e., sympathetic hyperactivity) has been considered to be a ...
Effects of late exercise on cardiac remodeling and myocardial calcium handling proteins in rats with moderate and large size myocardial infarction
Background Physical exercise attenuates myocardial infarction (MI)-induced cardiac remodeling. However, it is unsettled whether late exercise modulates post-infarction cardiac remodeling differentially according to infarct ...
Role of vitamin D in the cardiac remodeling induced by tobacco smoke exposure
(Elsevier B.V., 2014)
Tobacco smoke-induced left ventricular remodelling is not associated with metalloproteinase-2 or -9 activation
(Elsevier B.V., 2007-11-01)
Aim: To investigate the role of MMP-2 and MMP-9 in cardiac remodelling induced by tobacco smoke exposure in rats.Methods: Rats were allocated into two groups: C (n = 9): control animals; ETS (n = 9): exposed to tobacco ...
