BACKGROUND Whether the mesenteric lymphatic system could serve as a route of transport by which gut-derived inflammatory mediators contribute to the induction of remote organ injuries is uncertain. We therefore made a gut-induced lung injury canine model by portal vein occlusion and reperfusion (PV O/R) and studied the role of mesenteric lymphatic ducts(More)
BACKGROUND We have observed at our clinical work that acute lung injury (ALI) often occurs in patients transplanted with donor livers persevered for long time. So, we conducted this study to investigate the influence of cold preservation time (CPT) of donor liver on ALI induced by liver transplantation (LT), and further study the role of nuclear factor-κB(More)
