Glutathione S-transferase as predictor of functional outcome in transplantation of machine-preserved non-heart-beating donor kidneys.
Non-heart-beating (NHB) donors are a valuable source of kidneys for transplantation. The organs, however, sustain substantial warm ischemic damage that may jeopardize the transplantability and resultExpand

Rapid Reversal of Human Intestinal Ischemia-Reperfusion Induced Damage by Shedding of Injured Enterocytes and Reepithelialisation
Background Intestinal ischemia-reperfusion (IR) is a phenomenon related to physiological conditions (e.g. exercise, stress) and to pathophysiological events (e.g. acute mesenteric ischemia, aorticExpand
