Ten healthy males inhaled monodisperse Teflon particles (geometric diameter 3.6 μm, aerodynamic diameter 5.3 μm) labeled with 195 Au (half-life 183 days). The leakage of 195 Au from the particles in vitro in water was less than 0.2% per year. Retention over the thorax was followed for about 900...
Recent studies have shown that the contractile response to hypoxia is much greater in the pulmonary vein than in the artery. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of substrate utilization and oxidative phosphorylation on the responses of the pulmonary vein and artery to acute...
The released neutrophil chemotactic activity (NCA) from bronchial epithelial cells (BECs) in response to smoke extract was evaluated by reverse-phase, high-performance liquid chromatography (RP-HPLC) and the involvement of proteolytic activity was assessed for the release of NCA from BECs. Smoke...
Recent studies have demonstrated that nitric oxide (NO) acts as a pulmonary vasodilator when inhaled in low concentrations. Due to the physicochemical similarities between NO and carbon monoxide (CO), it was speculated that low concentrations of CO would have similar effects in the isolated rat...
The oleic acid (OA) model of rat lung injury was originally developed as a model of fat embolism syndrome. A single intravenous dose of pure OA causes an acute diffuse lung injury, which, in its initial stages, histologically and physiologically resembles human ARDS. Rat lungs acutely injured by...
A previous study demonstrated that the acute phase of silica-induced lung injury in rats can be attenuated by concomitant administration of amiodarone, a cationic amphiphilic drug that inhibits phospholipase activity in the lungs. The purpose of the present study was to determine whether...
Glycosaminoglycans are produced in abundance by the pleural mesothelium and likely participate in the inflammatory response to pleural injury. Because intrapleural tetracycline (TCN) results in pleural macrophage influx and pleural fibrosis, this study attempted to define the role of pleural...
Airway inflammation is a consistent finding in asthma, and increased amounts of eosinophil-derived cationic proteins are present in bronchoalveolar lavage fluid from asthmatic subjects. Tracheal instillation of a variety of naturally occurring and synthetic cationic proteins has been shown to...
