L-arginine-induced experimental pancreatitis.
Despite medical treatment, the lethality of severe acute pancreatitis is still high (20-30%). Therefore, it is very important to find good animal models to characterise the events of this severeExpand

A new severe acute necrotizing pancreatitis model induced by l-ornithine in rats
Objective:Intraperitoneal administration of large doses of l-arginine is known to induce severe acute pancreatitis in rats. We therefore set out to determine whether metabolites of l-arginineExpand

Plasma Concentrations of High-Mobility Group Box Protein 1, Soluble Receptor for Advanced Glycation End-Products and Circulating DNA in Patients with Acute Pancreatitis
Aims: High-mobility group box protein 1 (HMGB1), a late-acting proinflammatory cytokine, is secreted actively by inflammatory cells, and released passively from necrotic cells. From the aspect thatExpand

Heat shock proteins and the pancreas
Heat shock proteins (HSPs) are cytoprotective molecules that help to maintain the metabolic and structural integrity of cells. In this review, we briefly discuss the regulation and function of HSPs.Expand
