Effects of Growth Hormone on Cardiac Remodeling During Resistance Training in Rats
(Arquivos Brasileiros Cardiologia, 2016-01-01)
Background: Although the beneficial effects of resistance training (RT) on the cardiovascular system are well established, few studies have investigated the effects of the chronic growth hormone (GH) administration on ...
β-carotene attenuates the paradoxical effect of tobacco smoke on the mortality of rats after experimental myocardial infarction
The objective of this study was to investigate the effects of exposure to tobacco smoke (ETS) in rats that were or were not supplemented with dietary β-carotene (BC), on ventricular remodeling and survival after myocardial ...
Retinoic acid prevents ventricular remodelling induced by tobacco smoke exposure in rats
(Acta Cardiologica, 2011-02-01)
Objective Our objective was to test the hypothesis that retinoic acid supplementation could attenuate ventricular remodelling induced by tobacco smoke exposure in rats.Methods and results Wistar rats were allocated into ...
Pamidronate attenuates diastolic dysfunction induced by myocardial infarction associated with changes in geometric patterning
Background/Aims: The aim of this study was to evaluate the influence of pamidronate on ventricular remodeling after myocardial infarction. Methods: Male Wistar rats were assigned to four groups: a sham group, in which ...
Padrão de remodelação e função ventricular em ratos expostos à fumaça do cigarro
(Sociedade Brasileira de Cardiologia (SBC), 2010-02-01)
FUNDAMENTO: A relevância do padrão de remodelação no modelo de ratos expostos à fumaça do cigarro não é conhecida. OBJETIVO: Analisar a presença de diferentes padrões de remodelação nesse modelo e sua relação com a função ...
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 ...
