Evaluation of N-acetylcysteine treatment in acute pancreatitis-induced lung injury

Pulmonary complications are frequent during acute pancreatitis (AP). We investigate the effects of N-acetylcysteine (NAC) on lung injury in mild and severe AP. Mild and severe AP was induced in rats by bile–pancreatic duct obstruction (BPDO) and infusion of 3.5 % sodium taurocholate (NaTc) into the bile-pancreatic duct, respectively. NAC (50 mg/kg) was… CONTINUE READING
