Influence of pyrrolidine dithiocarbamate on the inflammatory response in macrophages and mouse endotoxin shock.
To analyze the immunomodulatory effect of pyrrolidine dithiocarbamate (PDTC) on the endotoxin (LPS) stimulated inflammatory response, we measured the LPS-stimulated cytokine and NO production inExpand

Fish oil‐supplemented parenteral diets normalize splanchnic blood flow and improve killing of translocated bacteria in a low‐dose endotoxin rat model
Objective: Intestinal ischemia decreases barrier function of the gut and enhances translocation of bacteria and toxins. Several studies indicate that fish oil can modulate prostaglandin formation andExpand
