The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effect of a high dose of methylprednisolone (MP) on the development of acute pancreatitis (AP) in rats induced by closed duodenal loop (CDL). Pancreas web weight, volume of ascites, hematocrit, serum amylase activity, concentrations of interleukin (IL)-1β and IL-6, organ blood flow in both the pancreas and the kidney, and histological findings of the pancreas were studied 6 h after the induction of AP. The intravenous administration of MP (30 mg… CONTINUE READING
