Note the much narrowed lung artery, and thick walls and larger chamber of the heart in the diseased animal and improvements with 4F peptide treatment (Photo courtesy of UCLA - University of California, Los Angeles).

Apolipoprotein A-1 Mimetic Peptide Reverses Pulmonary Hypertension in Rodent Models

A small peptide that mimics the activity of apolipoprotein A-1, the main protein component of the high density lipoproteins, counteracted the effects of oxidized lipids and alleviated symptoms of pulmonary arterial hypertension in a population of laboratory animals.   More...
