Abstract:We concluded that acetylcysteine and glutamine might be beneficial in the treatment of horses with gastrointestinal disease. The increase of mucosal permeability caused by acetylcysteine may be caused by the mucolytic properties of acetylcysteine. A lower dose may prevent mucolysis while allowing for the beneficial effects of acetylcysteine. Eosinophils were involved in several disease processes of the gastrointestinal tract in horses. They may be part of an initial inflammatory response of gastrointestinal mucosa to injury, and could have detrimental effects in several diseases including ischemia/reperfusion.
