Aims: We evaluated effects of the nonpeptide angiotensin (ANG)-(1-7) analog AVE 0991 (AVE) on cardiac function and remodeling as well as transforming growth factor-beta1 (TGF-β1)/tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α) expression in myocardial infarction rat models. Methods and Results: Sprague-Dawley rats underwent either sham surgery or coronary ligation. They were divided into four groups: sham, control, AVE, and AVE+A-779 [[D-Ala(7) ]-ANG-(1-7), a selective antagonist for the ANG-(1-7)] group. After 4 weeks of treatment, the AVE group displayed a significant elevation in left ventricular fractional shorting (LVFS) (25.5 ± 7.3% vs. 18.4 ± 3.3%, P < 0.05) and left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) (44.8 ± 7.6% vs. 32.7 ± 6.5%, P < 0.05) when compared to the control group, but no effects on the left ventricular end-diastolic and end-systolic diameters (LVDd and LVDs, respectively) were observed. In addition, we found that the myocyte diameter (18 ± 2 μm vs. 22 ± 4 μm, P < 0.05), infarct size (42.6 ± 3.6% vs. 50.9 ± 4.4%, P < 0.001) and collagen volume fraction (CVF) (16.4 ± 2.2% vs. 25.3 ± 3.2%, P < 0.001) were significantly reduced in the AVE group when compared to the control group. There were no differences in LVFS, LVEF, myocyte diameter, and infarct size between the control and AVE+A-779 groups. AVE also markedly attenuated the increased mRNA expression of collagen I (P < 0.001) and collagen III (P < 0.001) and inhibited the overexpression of TGF-β1 (P < 0.05) and TNF-α (P < 0.05) compared to the control group. Conclusion: AVE could improve cardiac function and attenuate ventricular remodeling in MI rat models. It may involve the inhibition of inflammatory factors TGF-β1/TNF-α overexpression and the action on the specific receptor Mas of ANG-(1-7).
