Silymarin component 2,3-dehydrosilybin attenuates cardiomyocyte damage following hypoxia/reoxygenation by limiting oxidative stress

Ischemic postconditioning and remote conditioning are potentially useful tools for protecting ischemic myocardium. This study tested the hypothesis that 2,3-dehydrosilybin (DHS), a flavonolignan component of Silybum marianum , could attenuate cardiomyocyte damage following hypoxia/ reoxygenation by decreasing the generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS). After 5-6 days of cell culture in normox…
