Protective effects of a prostaglandin E1 oligomer on taurocholate-induced rat pancreatitis.


Effects of prostaglandin E (PGE) on acute pancreatitis have been controversial. This study shows the effects of PGE1 oligomer, MR-356, on trypsin-taurocholate-induced acute pancreatitis in rats. Divided intraperitoneal doses of 0.6 mg/rat were administered, which increased 24 h survival rates when the oligomer was given both at 1 h before and after (group A… (More)
