Nitric oxide modulates pancreatic edema formation in rat caerulein-induced pancreatitis


This study was designed to investigate the role of nitric oxide (NO) in the formation of pancreatic edema in caerulein-induced pancreatitis in rats. Pancreatitis was produced by two intraperitoneal injections of caerulein, and plasma amylase concentration, pancreatic edema index (pancreatic wet weight/body weight), and Evans blue extravasation (as a measure… (More)
