Abstract

Objective: Acute lung injury is a complication after hepatic ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) and might be responsible for high mortality rate. The aim of this study was to demonstrate that adrenomedulline administration may prevent lung injury after hepatic I /R by downregulation of proinflammatory cytokines.
