Effects of pharmacological inhibition and genetic deficiency of plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 in radiation-induced intestinal injury.


PURPOSE To investigate effects of plasminogen activator inhibitor 1 (PAI-1) genetic deficiency and pharmacological PAI-1 inhibition with PAI-039 in a mouse model of radiation-induced enteropathy. METHODS AND MATERIALS Wild-type (Wt) and PAI-1(-/-) knockout mice received a single dose of 19 Gy to an exteriorized localized intestinal segment. Sham and… (More)
