Endogenous prostaglandin endoperoxides may alter infarct size in the presence of thromboxane synthase inhibition: studies in a rabbit model of coronary artery occlusion-reperfusion

The aim of this study was to assess whether prostaglandin endoperoxides, which continue to be formed in the setting of thromboxane A2 synthase inhibition, might influence the fate of ischemic myocardium in a model of coronary occlusion and reperfusion. It was recently demonstrated that thromboxane A2 synthase inhibitors reduce ischemic myocardial injury through a redirection of prostaglandin (PG) endoperoxides toward the synthesis of "cardioprotective" prostaglandins, such as PGI2, PGE2 and PGD2. However, part of these prostaglandin endoperoxides may also stimulate a receptor, shared with thromboxane A2, mediating platelet aggregation and vasoconstriction. New Zealand White rabbits were subjected to 30 min of coronary occlusion, followed by 5.5 h of reperfusion. Fifteen minutes before reperfusion, the animals were randomized to receive 1) saline solution (control animals, n = 8); 2) SQ 29548, a potent and selective thromboxane A2/PGH2 receptor antagonist (n = 8); 3) dazoxiben, a selective thromboxane A2 synthase inhibitor (n = 8); 4) R 68070 (Ridogrel), a drug with dual thromboxane A2 synthase-inhibiting and thromboxane A2/PGH2 receptor-blocking properties (n = 8); or 5) aspirin + R 68070 (n = 8). Dazoxiben and R 68070, but not...Continue Reading
