Abstract

The overarching-aim of the project was to assess the responsiveness of the rat mammary artery during different stages of the reproductive cycle. This has implications for not only normal physiology, but also heart disease, since women who undergo coronary artery bypass surgery using mammary arteries as the conduit and who have breastfed their offspring have a significantly better prognosis that those who have never breastfed.
