Summary Acute myocardial infarction (M!) is the commonest cause of death in the developed countries, and it is on the rise in developing countries. Ramipril is a well-knownAngiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitorwhich inhibits conversion ofinactive angiotensin I to active angiotensin II. Experimental studies have shown thatACE inhibitors administered chronicallybefore acuteMImight limitmyocardial infarct size, improve cardiac function and prevent cardiac hypertrophy [1, 2]. The Chinese herb, Salvia miltiorrhiza (SM), has been widely and successfully usedmainly for anginapectoris,MI and stroke [3]. Compared to ramipril, however, there is very limited biochemical information availableto demonstrate themechanismsofSMs
cardio-protective effects. This study thus investigates the possible
biochemical and molecularmechanisms ofsuch effects ofSMin Wistar rats in comparison with those oframipril.
