Protective Action of Xymedon on the Morphological Structures of the Pancreas of the Rat in Ischemia

Pathologic processes associated with the effect of ischemia on the pancreas are not yet fully investigated and searching for ways of reduction of the damaging effect of ischemia for providing full organ regeneration are of certain interest. Protective properties of xymedone with regard to pathologic processes in pancreas were studied on a model of total ischemia created by ligation of the coeliac and cranial mesenteric artery for 0 to 90 min. Pathologic structural changes in the pancreas in case of ischemia lasting up to 30 min are minor and therefore fully reversible. On the contrary, ischemia duration of more than 60 min in the group of animals not injected with xymedone can be seen as critical. We conclude that prior intraperitoneal injection of xymedone in the dose of 3.3 mg/kg helps to delay the development of pathologic processes in pancreatic parenchyma by approximately 30 min.
