The capacity of dog lung to release prostaglandin I2 as a biochemical parameter for evaluating lung damage during preservation.


The release of prostaglandin I2 (PGI2) from the vasculature is thought to reflect damage to the vessels. Basal and bradykinin (BK)-stimulated release of PGI2 from isolated dog lungs after 6-hr preservation were investigated to evaluate lung damage after preservation. Maximal PGI2 release induced by BK decreased significantly after preservation at 24 degrees… (More)
