AIM Heat shock proteins (HSPs), induced by thermal stress, make the cells more resistant to following stress. We aimed to verify if rats heating reduces the production of TNF-alpha in a model of acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). METHODS We divided 34 Wistar rats in Group A and Group B. The rats of Group A received thermal shock and tracheal instillation of lipopolysaccharide (LPS), the rats of Group B only tracheal instillation of LPS. All the rats have been then subdivided in 6… CONTINUE READING
