To assess whether a cardiac lymphagogue, CLS 2210, would reduce myocardial infarct size after coronary artery ligation, studies were performed in 14 dogs. The left anterior descending coronary artery was ligated in each dog, and the dogs were randomized to either placebo or CLS 2210 treatment, which was carried on for seven days. After seven days the animals were sacrificed and the volume of infarcted myocardium was determined macroscopically on a doubles blind basis, supported by histologic examination. CLS 2210 treatment resulted in a highly significant reduction in the volume of infarcted myocardium (p < 0.001). SInce CLS 2210 is chemically and pharmacologically unrelated to hyaluronidase hut shares an action with hyaluronidase as a cardiac lymphagogue, the results offer further support for a role of myocardial lymphatlcs in the evolution of myocardial necrosis following coronary artery occlusion and provide an explanation for the mechanism by which these agents reduce myocardial infarction size.

    Background Recent studies showed that hyperglycaemia (HG) blocks anaesthetic-induced preconditioning. The influence of HG on anaesthetic-induced postconditioning (post) has not yet been determined. We investigated whether sevoflurane (Sevo)-induced postconditioning is blocked by HG and whether...

    A previous study in dogs indicated that preconditioning (PC) of a specific myocardial region not only evoked a local cardioprotective effect but also rendered remote myocardium resistant to infarction. In the present study we devised a method to test for remote PC in the rabbit which it is not...
