Abstract

The effect of α-bisabolol on hemodyanimcs, lipid peroxidation, and nonenzymatic antioxidants was evaluated in isoproterenol-induced myocardial infarction in rats. They were pre- and cotreated with α-bisabolol (25 mg/kg body weight) daily for 10 days along with the subcutaneous injection of isoproterenol (85 mg/kg body weight) at an interval of 24 hours for 2 days (9th and 10th days). Increased activities of serum creatine kinase and creatine kinase-MB along with altered levels/concentrations of lipid peroxidation products and nonenzymatic status were observed in the plasma and heart tissues of rats. Treatment with α-bisabolol showed protective effects by reversing the altered biochemical parameters and hemodynamics studied. The in vitro reducing power of α-bisabolol confirmed its potent antioxidant action. These biochemical benefits were translated into functional recovery by the maintenance of the hemodynamics in rats. The findings showed that α-bisabolol has the potential to protect against isoproterenol-induced myocardial infarction due to its potent antilipid peroxidation and antioxidant properties.
