Effect of a new inhibitor of type II phospholipase A2 on experimental acute pancreatitis in rats.

Abstract

The catalytic activity of type II phospholipase A2 (PLA2) in blood has been reported to increase in acute pancreatitis and to reflect the severity of pancreatitis. In this study, we evaluated the effects of a new inhibitor of type II PLA2, S5920/LY315920Na, on trypsin-taurocholate-induced pancreatitis in rats. Hemorrhagic pancreatitis was induced by an… (More)
