Effects of niflumic acid on polyphosphoinositide and oxidative metabolism in polymorphonuclear leukocytes from healthy and thermally injured rats


Thermal injury in rats leads to an impairment of polymorphonuclear leukocyte (PMN) functions, particularly oxidative metabolism and phosphoinositide turnover. As prostaglandin E2, which has immunosuppressive properties, is released in high levels after burn trauma, we investigated the in vitro and in vivo effects of a nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drug… (More)
