Calcium pyrophosphate-induced pleurisy in rats: A new model of acute inflammation

Abstract

A model is described of acute inflammation in the pleural cavity of rats using calcium pyrophosphate as the irritant. This model would seem to simulate the pseudogout syndrome. It has been shown to be acute in onset, dominated by polymorphonuclear cells, complement independent. The advantage of the model is that volume of exudate, numbers and types of cells… (More)
