Bottom Line: Likewise, the TAC protocol increased markers of oxidative stress, cardiac hypertrophy, inflammation, fibrosis, hypoxia, and apoptosis.These pathological changes were significantly attenuated by resveratrol treatment.Resveratrol treatment significantly attenuates the adverse cardiac remodeling and dysfunction produced by the TAC protocol in C57/BL6 mice and this activity is mediated, at least in part, by the inhibition of oxidative stress and inflammation indicating a therapeutic potential of resveratrol in HF.

ABSTRACT
Transverse aortic constriction (TAC)-induced pressure overload (PO) causes adverse cardiac remodeling and dysfunction that progresses to heart failure (HF). The purpose of this study was to determine whether the potent antioxidant, resveratrol, significantly attenuates PO-induced HF in wild-type mice. Male C57BL6 mice were subjected to either sham or TAC surgery. One group of TAC mice was given daily resveratrol treatment. Echocardiographic, biometric, and immunohistological analyses were performed on the three groups of mice. All echocardiographic parameters demonstrated significantly greater adverse cardiac remodeling and dysfunction in the TAC compared to the sham mice. Increases in the ratios of heart weight (HW)/body weight (BW) and lung weight (LW)/BW and a sharp decline in the percentage of ejection fraction and fractional shortening were found in TAC relative to sham mice. Likewise, the TAC protocol increased markers of oxidative stress, cardiac hypertrophy, inflammation, fibrosis, hypoxia, and apoptosis. These pathological changes were significantly attenuated by resveratrol treatment. Resveratrol treatment significantly attenuates the adverse cardiac remodeling and dysfunction produced by the TAC protocol in C57/BL6 mice and this activity is mediated, at least in part, by the inhibition of oxidative stress and inflammation indicating a therapeutic potential of resveratrol in HF.

Resveratrol treatment attenuates TAC-induced cardiac fibrosis. The top (interstitial fibrosis) and middle panels (perivascular fibrosis) show representative tissue sections (LV, day 28) from sham, TAC, and TAC + resveratrol mice that were stained for collagen and quantified (bottom panels) as described in the Materials and Methods section. Values are expressed as the mean ± SD. *P < 0.05 was considered statistically significant.

Mentions: LV hypertrophy assessed by WGA staining was significantly greater in TAC mice compared to sham mice and was significantly attenuated by resveratrol treatment (Fig. 3). Similarly, as shown in Figure 4, LV interstitial and perivascular fibrosis as determined by Masson's trichrome staining was found to be significantly higher in TAC mice compared to sham mice. However, this marked increase in fibrosis was significantly attenuated in the resveratrol-treated group.
