LCZ696 alleviates cardiac injury in PAH mice and represses the Ang II receptor pathway. PAH mice were either treated with or without LCZ696. a Effect of LCZ696 on survival rate of PAH mice detected by Kaplan–Meier method (N = 7). b Heart size (scale bar = 100 mm) and ratio of heart weight/body weight of mice. c HE staining analysis of cardiac tissues (upper panels: scale bar = 50 mm; lower panels: bar = 25 μm). d Cardiac fibrosis observed by Masson’s trichrome staining (scale bar = 25 μm). e Apoptosis of cardiomyocytes detected by TUNEL staining (scale bar = 25 μm). f Western blot analysis of ACE2 protein. N = 7. *p < 0.05 vs. normal mice; #p < 0.05 vs. PAH mice. Measurement data (mean ± S.D.) among multiple groups were analyzed by one-way ANOVA, followed by Tukey post hoc test. Survival rate was calculated by the Kaplan–Meier method, and compared by a log-rank test
