BACKGROUND The aim of our study was to investigate the effect of IRFI 042, a novel dual vitamin E-like antioxidant, on nuclear factor-kappaB (NF-kappaB) activation, TNF-alpha gene priming and on the release of the mature protein during endotoxin shock. METHODS Endotoxin shock was produced in male rats by a single intravenous (i.v.) injection of 20 mg(More)
