Background: We previously showed that caffeic acid phenethyl ester (CAPE)attenuated NO production, reduced apoptosis, diminished serum CK and AST activities, and is cardio-protectivein rat heart subjected to ischemia/reperfusion (I/R). We now studied the short-term cardio-protectiveeffect of CAPE in an I/R rat heart model. Material/Methods: Wistar rats were divided into four groups:(i) sham-operated, (ii) I/R, (iii) I/R+CAPE, and (iv) I/R+glutathione. CAPE (10 micromol/kg) was infusedi.v. 10 min before occlusion of the left anterior descending coronary artery (8 min) followed by reperfusion(8 min). Results: SOD (p
