Neutrophil depletion attenuates human intestinal reperfusion injury.

Abstract

Intestinal ischemia/reperfusion injury (I/R) results from reactive oxygen metabolites generated by the xanthine oxidase system and activated neutrophils (PMN). In animal models, removing PMN from initial reperfusate has consistently decreased tissue injury. This experiment was designed to test this potential clinical treatment in human bowel subjected to I… (More)
