Aspiration pneumonitis refers to acute chemical lung injury caused by aspiration of sterile gastric contents. The aim of this study was to evaluate the role of quercetin (QC) in acid aspiration-induced lung injury in rats. Twenty-eight female Sprague–Dawley rats were used and divided into the following groups (n = 7): sham (aspirated normal saline, S),(More)
Aspiration is a devastating complication during decontamination procedure in poisoning patients. We have investigated whether S-methylisothiourea protects different pulmonary aspiration gastrointestinal decontamination agent-induced lung injury in rats. Forty-two male Sprague–Dawley rats were assigned to one of six groups (n = 7): normal saline, activated(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this experimental study was to investigate whether hypertonic saline or sodium bicarbonate administration prevented the development of cardiotoxicity in rats that received toxic doses of amitriptyline. METHOD Thirty-six Sprague Dawley rats were used in the study. The animals were divided into six groups. Group 1 received toxic doses(More)
This study was performed to clarify the role of extracellular and intracellular Ca2+ on rho-kinase enzyme inhibition-induced relaxation in rabbit renal arteries. The response to rho-kinase inhibitor (Y-27632) was studied in isolated renal artery segments precontracted with phenylephrine in the presence of voltage-gated calcium channel blocker nifedipine and(More)
