Figure 6: Effects of Antioxidant on the Impaired Recovery of LVDP Induced by db/db RBCs

(A) Hearts from WT mice were given RBCs from db/db mice treated with vehicle (n = 7) or NAC (n = 7) for 4 weeks. (B) Hearts from WT mice were given RBCs from WT mice treated with vehicle (n = 6) or NAC (n = 7) for 4 weeks. LVDP is expressed as percentage recovery from the pre-ischemic level. Significant differences between treatments were analyzed using 2-way analysis of variance including all time points; **p < 0.01. Abbreviations as in Figures 1, 2, and 3.
