First, we evaluated the process of I/RI in the Langendorff model, in which the hearts were denervated and could not reflect the potential role of neurohumor factors.
In human body BNP is active and decomposes rapidly but the inactive NT-proBNP remains stable and thus allows easy detection.7 It is now well-established that over-activations of the renin- angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS) and the sympathetic nervous system dominantly control the vicious circle of cardiac remodeling and the deterioration of heart function.8 Accordingly it is of great significance to inhibit the over-activation and vicious circle of neurohumor and to reverse ventricular remodeling.9 Up to now angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARBs) are drugs that specifically block Ang II receptors effectively inhibit Ang II or aldosterone escape and provide clinical benefits for heart failure patients.
