Endothelial barrier resistance in multiple organs after septic and nonseptic challenges in the rat.


Local variations in endothelial permeability, hypothesized to play a role in the development of multiple-organ injury, were measured by 125I-labeled human serum albumin flux and leakage index in rats with a variety of challenges. The albumin flux significantly increased in the peritoneum, pancreas, stomach, and liver in acute pancreatitis; in the peritoneum… (More)
