Eur Rev Med Pharmacol Sci. 2019 Sep;23(17):7573-7581 Authors: Liu WY, Wang L, Lai YF Abstract OBJECTIVE: The pulmonary artery hypertension (PAH) model was established in rats in this study. Therefore, we aimed to elucidate the protective role of Hepcidin in PAH rats and its underlying mechanism. MATERIALS AND METHODS: 24 male Sprague Dawley (SD) rats were randomly divided into sham group, PAH group and Hepcidin group, with 8 rats in each group. After animal procedures, hemodynamic parameters and r...
