Özet

Taurine, the major intracellular free amino acid found in high concentrations in mammalian cells, is known to be an endogenous antioxidant and a membrane-stabilizing agent. It was hypothesized that taurine may be effective in reducing ischemia-reperfusion injury after lung transplantation and an experimental study was conducted in a rat model.
