Pulmonary hypertension is a fatal disease characterized by a progressive increase in pulmonary artery pressure accompanied by pulmonary vascular remodeling and increased vasomotor tone. Although some biological pathways have been identified in neonatal hypoxia-induced pulmonary hyperte...
This study examined the effects of a novel orally active 14,15-epoxyeicosatrienoic acid analog (EET-A) on blood pressure (BP) and myocardial infarct size (IS) in two-kidney, one-clip (2K1C) Goldblatt hypertensive rats during sustained phase of hypertension. Between days 31 and 35 after...
Objective We investigated whether vardenafil, a phosphodiesterase-5 inhibitor, alters plasma levels of asymmetric dimethylarginine (ADMA), symmetric dimethylarginine (SDMA), and arginine.

The innate immunity is the first defense reaction against microorganisms or altered self-components upon tissue injury. Such exogenous or modified endogenous molecules present conserved molecular structures that are recognized by the immune system via pattern-recognition receptors or m...
Burdened by high morbidity and mortality, neonatal pulmonary hypertension (PH) is a life-threatening pathophysiological condition that progressively elevates the mean pulmonary artery pressure (PAP) and pulmonary vascular resistance (PVR). Pulmonary vascular remodeling and vasoconstric...
The aim of this study is to analyze the expression of purinergic receptors in the heart after ischemia–reperfusion, and their possible role in ischemia–reperfusion injury. Rat hearts were perfused according to the Langendorff technique and subjected to 30min ischemia followed by 15min ...
Pulmonary hypertension (PH), associated with imbalance in vasoactive mediators and massive remodeling of pulmonary vasculature, represents a serious health complication. Despite the progress in treatment, PH patients typically have poor prognoses with severely affected quality of life....
Uridine adenosine tetraphosphate (Up4A), a novel endothelium-derived vasoactive agent, is proposed to play a role in cardiovascular disorders and induces aortic contraction through activation of cyclooxygenases (COXs). We and others demonstrated that activation of A1 or A3 adenosine re...
