Abstract

This paper aims to demonstrate that there is currently sufficient evidence to suggest that endothelin-1 (ET-1) may play a role in angina and be associated with myocardial ischaemia. In order to demonstrate the potential role of ET-1 in angina, this paper examines three main factors: (i) that endothelin-1 can cause the pathophysiological states associated with myocardial ischaemia and angina; (ii) that ET-1 is over-expressed in humans and in animal models of myocardial ischaemia, which is associated with angina; and (iii) that modification of the ET-1 system is associated with an improvement in myocardial ischaemia and angina.
