ESC 2015: Myocardial protection: Reperfusion injury is ‘not just a lab curiosity’

 

Professor Guiseppe Ambrosio discusses Myocardial protection: Reperfusion injury is ‘not just a lab curiosity’ at the 2015 ESC congress in London.

Questions:

1. Myocardial protection to avoid reperfusion injury is an important objective. Do we have any effective way of protecting the heart in people with acute myocardial infarction?
2. Why do therapeutic agents that have been useful in animal models do not seem to work in humans?
