Why is it important?

The study for the first time demonstrates the ability of fenofibrate to ameliorate the baroreflex sensitivity along with ventricular functions,ECG alterations, and ventricular hypertrophy in ISO-induced HF in Wistar rats.


The present study highlights how the correction of cardiac energy metabolism protects the heart from damage and will give a larger window period to patients
