High-dose 17beta-estradiol treatment prevents development of heart failure post-myocardial infarction in the rat.

Abstract:

OBJECTIVES: Prognosis of heart failure remains poor despite therapeutic advances, such as angiotensin converting enzyme inhibition or beta-receptor blockade. Thus, more effective forms of treatment are urgently needed. Since estrogens have been shown to modulate migration and proliferation of cardiac fibroblasts and to modulate the expression of estrogen receptors of cardiomyocytes we examined whether high-dose estrogen treatment can affect post-myocardial infarction left ventricular remodel...
