The present study aims to observe the effects of ischemia-reperfusion (IR) on small intestines at a molecular level and to prospectively assess the potential preventive role of adalimumab (ADA) and antioxidants. A total of 24 male Sprague-Dawley rats were randomly divided into three groups-a control group, an IR group and an IR+ADA group. Although there was no change in SOD levels in the small bowel tissue of the IR group, we observed increased malondialdehyde (MDA) levels and increased

We found that ADA treatment reduced MDA levels and decreased the numerical density of caspase-3 and TNF-α positive enterocytes compared to the IR group (p=0.00; p=0.011; p=0.00, respectively). We conclude that ADA can be beneficial in preventing intestinal injury that arises from IR.
