Changes in (Na + K)-adenosine triphosphatase activity and ultrastructure of lung and kidney associated with oxidative stress induced by acute ethanol intoxication.

UNLABELLED STUDY AND OBJECTIVES: (Na + K)-adenosine triphosphatase (ATPase) activity, oxidative stress parameters, and morphologic characteristics of the lung and kidney of rats under acute ethanol intoxication were assessed to investigate the pathogenic mechanism of tissue damage. DESIGN AND INTERVENTIONS Adult rats were given ethanol (5.5 g/kg) 3 h… CONTINUE READING
