Recovery from acute pancreatitis is accelerated in Hsp72 mice.
Pancreatic water content (assessed as 1-dry/wet weight) (A) and the extent of neutrophil infiltration (measured as myeloperoxidase activity) (B) was determined in untreated mice as well as animals subjected to caerulein and analyzed 6, 12, 36 and 96 hours afterwards. Results in graphs are presented as mean ± SEM from at least 4 mice per group/time point. Levels from Hsp72 and non-transgenic animals are visualized as black and grey bars, respectively. * p< 0.05.
