Myocardial infarction (MI) is one of the most important diseases that has stimulated interest in understanding cardiac function recovery. SDF-1 is a chemotactic factor and a pro-angiogenic molecule; SDF-1 degradation is inhibited by dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP4) inhibitors, such as vildagliptin. We investigated whether vildagliptin affects angiogenesis in MI and improves cardiac function recovery.
