The fern Polypodium decumanum, commonly called Calaguala, has a clinically documented use in South America and Spain in the treatment of psoriasis. One of the inflammatory mediators isolated in abnormally high quantities in the psoriatic skin is leukotriene B4 (LTB4). Calaguala was tested in an in vitro model using human leukocytes for its ability to(More)
Intestinal ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury, in which macrophages play a key role, can cause high morbidity and mortality. The switch from classically (M1) to alternatively (M2) activated macrophages, which is dependent on the activation of STAT6 signaling, has been shown to protect organs from I/R injuries. In the current study, the effects of recombinant(More)
BACKGROUND Intestinal ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury can cause a high rate of mortality in the perioperative period. Remifentanil has been reported to provide protection for organs against I/R injury. We hypothesized that remifentanil preconditioning would attenuate the small intestinal injury induced by intestinal I/R. METHODS We used both an in vivo(More)
Intestinal ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) disrupts intestinal mucosal integrity and immunoglobulin A (IgA) generation. It has recently been shown that the programmed cell death-1 receptor (PD-1) plays a crucial role in regulating intestinal secreted IgA (sIgA). To evaluate changes in PD-1 and PD-ligand 1 (PD-L1) expression on Peyer’s patches (PP) CD4+ T cells(More)
Intestinal ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury is associated with a high morbidity and mortality. Vasopressin is administered to critically ill patients with potential intestinal I/R. However, the impacts of vasopressin on intestinal epithelia under ischemic/anoxic conditions remain unclear. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effects of(More)
