BACKGROUND Intestinal ischemia-reperfusion (II/R) induced acute lung injury is mediated by activated neutrophils and formation of free radicals. Several antioxidants have been shown to attenuate such remote organ injury. We studied the effects of zinc aspartate on lung injury induced by II/R in rats. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty-four Sprague-Dawley rats were randomized into three groups. Group I was the control. Animals in Groups II and III (II/R + zinc aspartate [ZA]) underwent 60 min of… CONTINUE READING
