Margins of resection and lymph nodes (LNs) recovered were compared with those of 20 consecutive controls treated over the preceding 6-month period at the same institution. Of these 14 procedures, one was completed entirely via laparoscopy,(More)
Free radical-initiated lipid peroxidation (LP) following intestinal ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) may disrupt mucosal integrity. It is unknown if inhibition of LP prevents this injury. We analyzed rat ileum, subjected to I/R, for evidence of LP inhibition and structural damage following treatment with the 21-aminosteroid, U74389F, a potent LP inhibitor. Four(More)
Hydroxyl radicals (.OH) may contribute to beta cell death. Because iron catalyzes .OH production, we examined whether administration of a novel, long-acting iron chelator, hydroxyethyl starch-deferoxamine (HES-DFO) could prevent diabetes in spontaneously diabetic biobreeding (BB) rats. In our colony, a peripheral lymphocyte count (PBLC) < 4200 mm3 has an(More)
