Abstract

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.
