Introduction: Studies of the protective effects of insulin on endothelial impairments are still very limited. Aim: This study is intended to find out the effect of insulin injection on expression of HIF-1, VEGF-β, and caspase-3 in myocardial tissues of rats subjected to hypoxic-hyperglycemic condition. Materials and methods: Wistar rats (n=30) were subjected to hyperglycemic by alloxan injection and be hypoxic by exposuring the animal to a normal and low oxygen tension alternatingly. The test animals then grouped into two. The first group was treated with insulin NPH, the second one was not. Results: Results showed that expression of HIF-1 and caspase-3 did not significantly affected by insulin treatments. However, expression of VEGF-β was significantly increased by insulin injection. Conclusion: In conclusion, insulin has potential to be used as a protective agent against endothelial impairments in rats experienced hypoxia and hyperglycemia.
