    Notes: Abstract. Liver failure due to ischemia-reperfusion injury, believed to be closely related to the generation of oxygen-free radicals, is a serious problem during liver surgery. Gabexate mesilate, a synthetic protease inhibitor, suppresses the extracellular release of oxygen-free radicals in the microvascular endothelium. To determine its effects on ischemia-reperfusion injury to the liver, we performed experiments with rats. We divided the animals into two ischemia-reperfusion groups: an experimental group, which underwent ischemic injury for 30 minutes, along with the infusion of gabexate mesilate, and a control group, which underwent injury only. Each group was then divided into four subgroups: ischemic injury only and 60-, 120-, and 180-minute reperfusion injury. The test parameters were tumor necrosis factor α (TNFα) and interleukin-6 (IL-6) in serum and superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase, and malondialdehyde (MDA) in liver and lung tissues. The experimental group had a significantly higher liver SOD and catalase levels and a significantly lower level of liver and lung MDA than the control groups. TNFα levels in the experimental groups were significantly lower during the early phase, but a comparison of IL-6 levels between the two groups yielded no differences. Levels of lung catalase and SOD were not significantly different between the two groups. We concluded that protease inhibitor suppressed liver ischemia-reperfusion injury, and that it was due to an increase of antioxidant or suppression of oxygen-free radicals. The roles of TNFα and IL-6 in liver reperfusion injury were not clear, though TNFα might have had an effect during the early phase. With liver ischemia-reperfusion injury, the mechanism of lung involvement might be different from that of liver involvement.

    Notes: [Auszug] We first consider possible fractionation that occurs during formation of tropospheric methane clouds. Data in rf. 12 indicate the CH4-CH3D liquid solution to be ideal in the sense that the ratio of components in the gas phase is equal to that in the liquid, multiplied by the saturation vapour ...
