Abstract: During brain or cardiac ischemia/reperfusion neutrophils are recruited and activated contributing to inflammation and tissue damage. Neutrophils are removed from inflamed tissues by phosphatidylserine-dependent phagocytosis. Production of reactive oxygen species by the neutrophil NADPH-oxidase is known to affect phosphatidylserine externalization. Amiloride derivatives are inhibitors of the sodium-proton exchanger providing substantial protection in animal models of brain and cardiac ischemia/reperfusion injur…
