Since the 16-kDa bronchiolar Clara cell protein (CC16) and the alveolar surfactant-associated proteins (SP)-A and -B leak into the circulation when parenchymal health is disturbed, the aim of this study was to determine whether their serum levels could serve as early peripheral markers of tobacco smoke-induced epithelial injury.

Alveolar macrophages (AM) may be exposed to a range of CO 2 and pH levels depending on their location in the alveoli and the health of the lung. Cytokines produced by AM contribute to inflammation in acute lung injury (ALI). Current ventilatory practices for the management of ALI favour low tidal volumes, which can give rise to increases in CO 2 and changes(More)
