Argon-Celsior stimulated antioxidant defences and limited inflammation. Before left nephrectomy and at postoperative day 1, the antioxidant status was assessed via plasma RAA/TBARS ratio (a; RAA reduced acorbic acid; TBARS thiobarbituric acid reactive substances) and plasma expression of Hsp27 (b). Tissue expression of TNF-alpha, Interleukin-1 beta and Interleukin-6 was determined (c). The data are reported as the means ± SDs; p < 0.050 (asterisks): Argon-Celsior versus Air-Celsior and p < 0.050 (bash): Argon-Celsior versus Xenon-Celsior
