being myocardial-protective and having multiple cardioprotective effects (28), it is possible that the beneficial compensatory upregulation is attenuated in smokers.

Effects of levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine system on the expression of vascular endothelial growth factor and adrenomedullin
in the endometrium," Human Reproduction (in press).
The better survival with WBPA treatment probably relates to a combination of factors including the promotion of increased release of anti-inflammatory mediators and vasodilators into the circulation such as nitric oxide, prostacyclin and adrenomedullin
Several novel cardiac neurohormonal biomarkers (chromogranin A, apelin, galectin-3, adrenomedullin
, ST2, adiponectin, etc.
HIF-mediated factors known to confer cytoprotection against ischemic injury include those that promote cell survival and prevent programmed cell death (anti-apoptotic factors), such as erythropoietin (EPO); anti-oxidant enzymes, such as heme-oxygenase-1 (HO-1), which decrease free radical damage and limit reperfusion injury; and vasodilatory factors, such as nitric oxide and adrenomedullin
(ADM), which enhance tissue perfusion (blood flow).
Autocrine role for the endothelin-B receptor in the secretion of adrenomedullin
For example, in the short-term, HIF induces cytoprotective factors, such as heme oxygenase and adrenomedullin
, and promotes changes in glucose metabolism that help conserve energy levels within cells when the oxygen supply is interrupted.
