Introduction Acute pancreatitis (AP) protease release induces lung parenchymal destruction via inflammatory mediators. Ginkgo biloba has been reported to have anti-inflammatory effects. Aim To evaluate the effect of ginkgo biloba extract on experimental acute pancreatitis-associated lung injury in the rat and to investigate the underlying mechanisms. Material and methods Acute pancreatitis was induced in rats by injection of 5% sodium taurocholate into the biliary pancreatic duct. Ginkgo biloba… 

Figures from this paper

Are gastric mucosal macrophages responsible for gastric injury in acute pancreatitis?
TLDR
Gastric macrophages contribute to the pathogenesis of gastric injury in SAP and clodronate-containing liposomes have protective effects against AGMI in rats with SAP.
IRF5 regulates lung macrophages M2 polarization during severe acute pancreatitis in vitro
TLDR
Treatment with IRF5 siRNA can reverse the pancreatitis-induced activation of lung macrophages from M1 phenotype to M2 phenotype in SAP associated with ALI.
Eff ects of hemin, a heme oxygenase-1 inducer in L-arginine-induced acute pancreatitis and associated lung injury in adult male albino rats
TLDR
It is indicated that the induction of HO-1 by hemin pre-treatment significantly ameliorated the L-arginine-induced pancreatitis and associated pulmonary complications may be due to its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
The Role of Plant‐derived Products in Pancreatitis: Experimental and Clinical Evidence
TLDR
The present review deals to fill the gap of hitherto unavailable comprehensive review on various plant products screened for the treatment of pancreatitis by summarized the possible mechanistic profile of these phytochemicals.
Chronic Pancreatitis Associated Acute Respiratory Failure.
TLDR
The mechanism that is operational in pancreatitis-associated acute respiratory failure and respiratory distress syndrome in patients and current treatment options is summarized.
Targeting Macrophage Migration Inhibitory Factor in Acute Pancreatitis and Pancreatic Cancer
TLDR
The role of MIF signaling pathways in inflammation and cancer is discussed and insights into clinical translation of Mif antagonism as a strategy for treating acute pancreatitis and pancreatic cancer are expected.
Pancreatic Acinar Cells Employ miRNAs as Mediators of Intercellular Communication to Participate in the Regulation of Pancreatitis-Associated Macrophage Activation
TLDR
The results showed that the culture medium from the activated AR42J cells significantly enhanced NFκB activation in the macrophages compared to that without taurolithocholate treatment, and the precipitates obtained from ultracentrifugation of the culture media that were rich in exosomes were markedly more potent in activating macrophage compared with the supernatant fraction lacking exosome.
Ginkgetin aglycone attenuates the apoptosis and inflammation response through nuclear factor‐kB signaling pathway in ischemic‐reperfusion injury
TLDR
The aim of the study was to investigate the characteristics and function of GA in ischemic‐reperfusion injury in acute myocardial infarction.
Energetic etiologies of acute pancreatitis: A report of five cases.
TLDR
Five cases of acute pancreatitis in four patients came to attention due to a strong temporal association with exposure to nerve stimulators and energy drinks, and there was a coherent body of intriguing literature in support of a mechanistic basis for these exposures playing a role in the etiology of pancreatitis.

Role of macrophage migration inhibitory factor in acute lung injury in mice with acute pancreatitis complicated by endotoxemia.
TLDR
Activation of protease-activated receptor-2 with trypsin, which can be released after pancreatitis induction, positively regulates the transcript level of MIF, and increased MIF results in exaggerated pulmonary expression of TLR-4, leading to the development of ALI with a subsequent infectious attack.
Activation of alveolar macrophages in lung injury associated with experimental acute pancreatitis is mediated by the liver.
TLDR
Lung damage induced by experimental AP is associated with alveolar macrophage activation, and the liver mediates the alveolars activation in this experimental model.
A crucial role of nitric oxide in acute lung injury secondary to the acute necrotizing pancreatitis
TLDR
The results suggest that overproduction of NO mediated by iNOS in the lung is required for the acute lung inflammation and damage secondary to ANP.
Protective effects of Curcuma longa against cerulein-induced acute pancreatitis and pancreatitis-associated lung injury.
TLDR
The administration of CL significantly ameliorated the severity of pancreatitis and pancreatitis-associated lung injury, as was shown by the reduction in pancreatic edema, neutrophil infiltration, vacuolization, necrosis, serum amylase, lipase and cytokine levels, and mRNA expression of multiple inflammatory mediators.
Clodronate-containing liposomes attenuate lung injury in rats with severe acute pancreatitis
TLDR
Clodronate-containing liposomes have a protective effect against ALI in rats with SAP, and blockade of macrophages may represent a novel therapeutic strategy in SAP.
Increased nitric oxide excretion in patients with severe acute pancreatitis: evidence of an endotoxin mediated inflammatory response?
TLDR
Total urinary nitrite excretion is increased in patients with severe AP, and may not be simply a reflection of systemic inflammation, but potentially a consequence of endotoxin mediated upregulation of inducible NO synthase activity.
Pathophysiology of Acute Pancreatitis
TLDR
Several animal models of acute pancreatitis have been developed mostly in rodents, although these models fail to reproduce the human disease.
Essential role of monocytes and macrophages in the progression of acute pancreatitis.
TLDR
The role of monocytes/macrophages in progression of acute pancreatitis is focused on and findings on the inflammatory process involved are discussed.
A better model of acute pancreatitis for evaluating therapy.
TLDR
The authors conclude that combining minimal intraductal bile acid exposure with intravenous hyperstimulation produces homogeneous pancreatitis of intermediate severity that can be modulated at will and the model provides superior opportunity to study innovative therapy.
