Role of nitric oxide in lung injury associated with experimental acute pancreatitis
This study evaluated the effect of varying the synthesis of nitric oxide with sodium nitroprusside or N‐nitro‐L‐arginine methyl ester (L‐NAME) in a pancreatitis‐lung injury model. Rats (n = 45) wereExpand

Induction of heat shock protein 72kDa expression is associated with attenuation of ischaemia-reperfusion induced microvascular injury.
Leukocyte-endothelial interaction is a pivotal step in the pathogenesis of ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) injury. Exposure of cells to a subcritical heat stress may protect cells from subsequent I/RExpand

Plasma factors augment neutrophil and endothelial cell activation during aortic surgery.
Lung injury following reperfusion results from endothelial damage caused by release of cytotoxic products by activated neutrophils (PMN) in the pulmonary microvasculature. This process is facilitatedExpand

Pravastatin, a 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A reductase inhibitor, attenuates renal injury in an experimental model of ischemia-reperfusion.
BACKGROUND Renal dysfunction due to ischemia-reperfusion (IR) injury is a common problem following renovascular surgery or kidney transplantation. There is a lot of emerging evidence that statins,Expand
