Background/Aims: To date, direct toxic, effects of free oxygen radicals in vivo on pancreatic parenchyma have not been studied thoroughly. We aimed to study: 1) the detailed histopathological changes induced by free oxygen radicals in pancreas; and 2) the preventive effect of intraductal catalase in H2O2-induced acute pancreatitis.
