Cytokine interleukin-2, tumor necrosis factor-alpha, and interferon-gamma release after ischemia/reperfusion injury in a novel lung autograft animal model.


Previously, we have reported an increase in the cytokines interleukin-2 (IL-2), tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha), and interferon-gamma (IFN-gamma) early after left lung allotransplantation in dogs. The purpose of this study was to develop a novel model of canine lung autotransplantation and to observe whether ischemia/reperfusion injury alone (in the… (More)
