Reduction of reperfusion injury in rat skeletal muscle following administration of cinnamophilin, a novel dual inhibitor of thromboxane synthase and thromboxane A2 receptor.

Abstract

We used cinnamophilin, a novel dual inhibitor of thromboxane synthase and thromboxane A2 (TXA2) receptor, and superoxide dismutase (SOD) with catalase to examine their protective effect against reperfusion injury in rat skeletal muscle. In 5 groups of 6 wistar rats three hours of ischaemia were induced in one hind limb by application of a tourniquet to the… (More)
