Effects of a BLT receptor antagonist on local and remote reperfusion injuries after transient ischemia of the superior mesenteric artery in rats.


Reperfusion of ischemic vascular beds may lead to recruitment and activation of leukocytes, release of mediators of the inflammatory process and further injury to the affected vascular bed and to remote sites. Neutrophils appear to play a major role in the pathophysiology of reperfusion injury. Amongst inflammatory mediators shown to activate neutrophils… (More)
