When compared with the infract size of rats from model group (Figure 3(a)), the infarction size of rats reduced significantly by 70% (P < 0.01), 64% (P < 0.01), and 35% (P < 0.05) in high, moderate, and low dose groups, respectively.
With the treatment of BAY11-7082, the myocardial infract size and MI/R injury were significantly decreased in rat MI/ R experiments and the cell viability was significantly increased with caspase-1 activity and LDH release level significantly decreased in H9C2 cells exposed to HG and H/R insult 7 and attenuated the pyroptotic cell death.
The lipids (cholesterol ester, cholesterol, triglyceride, cerebroside, ceramide, phosphatidylcholine), glutathione and infract volume levels were expressed as mean [+ or -] SEM and compared using One Way ANOVA (spss16.0 post hoc LSD).
Coronary collateral development has potential protective roles such as limited infract size, less aneurysm formation in the ventricle wall, improved ventricular function, fewer future cardiovascular events and improved survival in patients with occlusive coronary lesions (7, 8).

And S[O.sub.2] derivatives preconditioning for 10 min before ischemia (with a low concentration of sulfur dioxide of 1-10 [micro]mol/kg) significantly decreased myocardial infract size and lowered levels of myocardial enzymes creatine kinase (CK) and lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) in plasma of rats with I/R injury in vivo [18].
Coronary collateral development has potential protective roles such as limited infract size, less ventricular aneurysm formation, improved ventricular function, fewer future cardiovascular events, and improved survival in patients with occlusive coronary lesions (1-5).

The results also revealed that there was no significant relationship between the site of heart wall infracted and arrhythmias and/or ST depression on 24-hour Holter monitoring (p=0.18) (See table 5).
Also, pretreatment with RFAE or GFAE induced an obvious increase in the level of HDL-C with reduction in the level of TC, TG, LDL-C and vLDL-C as well as an obvious induction in the cardiac total antioxidant capacity and reduction in the level of MDA relative to the non treated infracted groups.
