Intraperitoneal bilirubin administration decreases infarct area in a rat coronary ischemia/reperfusion model

Frontiers in Physiology, 5 FEB.

By: R. Ben-Amotz*, J. Bonagura*, M. Velayutham, R. Hamlin*, P. Burns* & C. Adin*

author keywords: bilirubin; cardiac ischemia; ischemia reperfusion injury; myocardial infarction; infarct area; fractional shortening; antioxidant
TL;DR: Bilirubin supplementation appears to provide significant decrease in infarct size although protective effects on LV function were noted only during the period of ischemia, which suggests that lipid soluble antioxidant bilirUBin prevents the oxidation of cardiolipin and decreases the infarCT size in the heart during ischemIA.
