Abstract: Objective: To find if edaravone can play a protective role in a mouse model of pulmonary oxygen toxicity and explore the intervention mechanism. Methods: Thirty male C57BL/6 mice were randomly divided into 3 groups(Air +Vehicle, Hyperbaric oxygen(HBO) +Vehicle and HBO + Edaravone). Mice were either given edaravone (5 mg/(kg·d)) in sterilized water or a sterilized water vehicle for 3 days before oxygen exposure. Mice in HBO groups were exposed to 0.23 MPa hyperoxia (≥95% O2) for 6 h. Lung tissues were collected and the wet/dry ratio of lung were analyzed. For histologic analysis, lung sections were stained with hematoxylin and eosin (HE). Proinflammatory cytokine levels and antioxidant enzyme activities in lungs were determined by using ELISA kits. The expression levels of pro-apoptosis protein were determined with Western blot analysis.Results: Edaravone treatment could significantly reduce lung permeability, decrease tissue pro-apoptosis protein (cleaved-caspase3) and inflammation (IL-1β). However, edaravone treatment had no effect on antioxidant enzyme activities.Conclusion: These results showed that edaravone treatment had a protective role in pulmonary oxygen toxicity through curbing inflammation and apoptosis.

Key words: pulmonary oxygen toxicity, edaravone, inflammation, apoptosis, mouse
