BACKGROUND & AIMS Prior thermal stress induces heat shock protein 70 (HSP70) expression in the pancreas and protects against secretagogue-induced pancreatitis, but it is not clear that this thermal stress-induced protection is actually mediated by HSP70 since thermal stress may have other, non-HSP related, effects. METHODS In the present study, we have… CONTINUE READING
