Myocardial ischemia is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in human disease. Previous studies have demonstrated that the prognosis following acute myocardial infarction is directly related to the amount of myocardium which has been irreversibly injured. Recent attempts to limit infarct size during acute myocardial ischemia have focused on either increasing myocardial oxygen supply or decreasing oxygen demand (1). A more precise understanding of the biochemical mechanisms responsible for the development of irreversible myocardial injury is required to develop specific agents to protect ischemic myocardium from the consequences of oxygen deprivation.
