BACKGROUND Following kidney transplantation, ischemia-reperfusion injury contributes to adverse outcomes. The purpose of this study was to determine whether a cold-storage solution saturated with noble gas (xenon or argon) could limit ischemia-reperfusion injury following cold ischemia. METHODS Sixty Wistar rats were randomly allocated to 4 experimental(More)
The schedule induced self-injection procedure was used to establish ethanol self-injection in 16 rats. Pretreatment with an injection of 0.3 mg/kg buprenorphine significantly reduced ethanol self-injection in a group of 8 rats. This effect was not found in a second group of 8 rats which received saline pretreatment. The findings provide support for an(More)
