Ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) is a common clinical event. It may occur during (gastrointestinal or traumatic/surgical) hemorrhage and resuscitation, during/after vascular surgery, cardiopulmonary bypass, thrombolytic therapy for myocardial infarction and transplantation surgery [1]. Indeed, the transplantation of organs like the heart, lungs and kidneys is associated with I/R, and specific measures for organ preservation are meant to prevent such I/R damage.
