Left ventricular (LV) remodeling is a summation of cellular and extracellular matrix (ECM) events, which invariably occur following a myocardial infarction (MI) and is an important predictor of clinical outcomes. Increased inductions of the ECM proteolytic enzymes, the matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs), occur in the early and late phases of post-MI remodeling. While MMP inhibition remains an important therapeutic target in the context of post-MI remodeling, systemic delivery of broad spectrum pha...
