A role for iron in oxidant-mediated ischemic injury to intestinal microvasculature.

Abstract

Recent reports in the literature suggest that iron plays an important role in free radical-mediated injury in biological systems. To assess the role of iron-catalyzed oxidant production in ischemia-reperfusion injury, we examined the influence of deferoxamine (an iron chelator) and apotransferrin (iron transporting protein) on the increased intestinal… (More)
