Dexmedetomidine alleviates intestinal barrier dysfunction and inflammatory response in mice via suppressing TLR4/MyD88/NF-κB signaling in an experimental model of ulcerative colitis.


Ulcerative colitis (UC) is a nonspecific intestinal inflammatory disease. Dexmedetomidine (DEX) is a selective alpha 2-adrenergic receptor agonist commonly used for analgesia and sedation in intensive care units. Herein, the role and mechanism of DEX in dextran sulfate sodium (DSS)-induced colitis was explored.
