Previous studies showed that females in the proestrus stage of the reproductive cycle maintain organ functions after trauma-hemorrhage. However, it remains unknown whether the female reproductive cycle is an important variable in the regulation of lung injury after trauma-hemorrhage and, if so, whether the effect is mediated via upregulation of heme… CONTINUE READING
