Ischemia-reperfusion (IR) injury is an important cause of primary graft failure in lung transplantation. In this study, viral interleukin-10 (vIL-10)-engineered mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) were tested for their ability to prevent lung IR injury. Bone marrow-derived MSCs were transduced with rvIL-10-retrovirus. After 120 min of warm left lung ischemia,(More)
This study describes an alternative arteriovenous fistula (AVF) model in the rat in which the animals develop significant neointimal hyperplasia (NIH) not only at the distal anastomotic site, but also throughout the fistula body. This aortocaval fistula was established by anastomosing the distal end of the renal vein to the abdominal aorta after unilateral(More)
To elucidate the source of neointimal cells, experimental fistulas were created in Lewis wild-type (WT) and transgenic rats that constitutively expressed the green fluorescent protein (GFP) in all tissues. Arteriovenous fistula (AVFs) were created by anastomosing the left renal vein to the abdominal aorta. The contribution of bone marrow (BM)-derived cells(More)
Several lines of evidence suggest that the proteasome contributes to ischemia-reperfusion injury (I-RI) of organs. Although I-RI contributes to multiple disease processes in the lung, the regulation of proteasome activities during pulmonary I-RI is unknown. Thus, the authors performed a pilot study to define time-related changes of lung proteasome peptidase(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine whether ubiquitin treatment modulates the lung cytokine response and attenuates lung ischemia-reperfusion injury. DESIGN AND SETTING Randomized and blinded treatment of unilateral lung ischemia-reperfusion injury in a research laboratory. SUBJECTS Twenty anesthetized and mechanically ventilated Brown Norway rats. INTERVENTIONS(More)
