Background: Pre-infarction angina reduces myocardial infarct size by preventing the myocardium from being subjected to ischemia reperfusion (I/R) injury. Ischemic preconditioning is the proposed mechanism for this effect. Sphingosine 1 phosphate (S1P) activates ischemic preconditioning pathways and may play a role in the presence of cardioprotective effects of pre-infarction angina. Therefore, we evaluated the relationship between pre-infarction angina and serum S1P levels.
