OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effect of treatment with murine recombinant interleukin-1 beta on inflammatory infiltrate and tissue damage after experimental endotoxic challenge. DESIGN Randomized, controlled study. SETTING Experimental Unit, Virgen de las Nieves University Hospital. SUBJECTS Seventy-two female CBA/H mice, 20-21 g, supplied by the animal(More)
Interleukin-1 (IL-1) and ibuprofen modulate the host response in different models after endotoxic challenge. A comparative study was made between the two drugs, as they were jointly administered, to explore a potentiation of their therapeutic effects. Endotoxic challenge was provoked in CBA/H mice with lipopolysaccharide (LPS) from Escherichia coli (125(More)
Complications resulting from gallstones left in the peritoneal cavity are most often reported after laparoscopic treatment of cholelitiasis. Gallstones are frequently dropped in the posterior subhepatic space, which can lead to the development of abscesses that usually require laparotomy for extraction of the stones. We present a novel technique for(More)
Multiple-organ failure is considered a consequence of autodestructive inflammatory response during which a state of immunosuppression is produced. Alterations in CD4 and CD8 lymphocytes after experimental endotoxic challenge and their correlation with the protective effects of interleukin-1beta (IL-1beta) and ibuprofen pretreatment were investigated. CBA/H(More)
Traumatic diaphragmatic rupture is an infrequent lesion that can result from penetrating or blunt trauma to the abdomen or chest. Early diagnosis continues to be a challenge and this type of injury is associated with high morbidity and mortality. Preoperative diagnosis is difficult and a high level of suspicion, careful scrutiny of the chest x-ray, and(More)
Because of a shortage of organs, non-heart-beating donors have been proposed to be a possible source of grafts for orthotopic liver transplantation. Herein, we have presented a blood group A+ patient with primary biliary cirrhosis, who underwent orthotopic liver transplantation from a non-heart-beating blood group A- donor. On day 5 after transplantation(More)
