Reduction of pulmonary inflammatory response by erythropoietin in a rat model of endotoxaemia.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Erythropoietin elicits protective effects in lung tissue injury induced by ischaemic reperfusion and hyperoxia. We investigated the protective roles of erythropoietin in pulmonary inflammation and lung injury during acute endotoxaemia. METHODS A total of 32 male Sprague-Dawley rats were randomly assigned to four groups: saline group… (More)
