• Hydrogen sulfide provides intestinal protection during a murine model of experimental necrotizing enterocolitis

    One year ago - By Journal of Pediatric Surgery

    Necrotizing enterocolitis continues to be a morbid surgical condition among preterm infants. Novel therapies for this condition are desperately needed. Hydrogen sulfide is an endogenous gasotransmitter that has been found to have beneficial properties. We therefore hypothesized that intraperitoneal injection of various H2S donors would improve clinical outcomes, increase intestinal perfusion, and reduce intestinal injury in an experimental mouse model of necrotizing enterocolitis.
