AT-III without concomitant heparin inhibited the activation of ERK1/2 and P38 MAPK, down-regulated the levels of downstream cytokines TNF-alpha and IL-6, relieved endothelial permeability, and improved the ALI in endotoxin-induced rats. It might be helpful to administrate AT-III alone, not with concomitant heparin, to those patients with ALI and sepsis.
