Background-The incretin hormone glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) has been shown to have cardioprotective properties in animal models of ischemia and infarction due to promotion of myocardial glucose uptake and suppression of apoptosis. We investigated whether GLP-1 protected the heart from dysfunction caused by supply ischemia during percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). METHODS AND RESULTS: from baseline, -1.6% versus -12.2%; P=0.02) and reduced the LV dysfunction after the second balloon occlusion (delta dP/dt(max), -13.1% versus -25.3%; P=0.01). Conclusions-In this pilot study, infusion of GLP-1 has been demonstrated to reduce ischemic LV dysfunction after supply ischemia during coronary balloon occlusion in humans and mitigates stunning. The findings require confirmation in a larger scale clinical trial. Clinical Trial Registration-URL: Unique identifier: ISRCTN 77442023..
