    Postoperative organ dysfunction after cardiac operations has been related to the damaging effects of cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB). These complications are considered to be mediated partly by complement activation and subsequent activation of leucocytes due to the contact between blood and the...

    Background. Since the Fas/Fas Ligand (FasL) interaction is recognized as a major pathway of apoptosis in immune cells, we hypothesized that selective expression of FasL by tubular cells (TC) may promote the resolution of interstitial inflammation by inducing apoptosis of infiltrating immune...

    Background We previously reported that radicicol (Hsp90 inhibitor) induced a reduction in the renal blood flow and glomerular filtration rate, in part due to a reduction in urinary NO2/NO3 excretion, suggesting that Hsp90 regulates renal vascular tone in physiological conditions. However, there...

    Abstract: Objectives: The effect of low dose of cyclophosphamide (CP) protecting cardiac function from ischemia-reperfusion injury was studied on rats. The premise is that CP inhibits immune and inflammatory process, thereby limits I/R injury and improves myocardial function. Methods: Open chest...
