In a murine bone-marrow transplant (BMT) model designed to determine risk factors for lung dysfunction in irradiated mice, we reported that cyclophosphamide (Cy)-induced injury and lethality depended on the infusion of donor spleen T cells. In the study reported here, we hypothesized that alveolar macrophage (AM)-derived reactive oxygen/nitrogen species are(More)
Surfactant protein A (SP-A), a collectin associated with surfactant lipids, can have immune modulatory effects. We hypothesized that exogenous and basal endogenous SP-A can function to suppress donor T-cell-dependent inflammation that occurs during the generation of idiopathic pneumonia syndrome after bone marrow transplantation (BMT). Wild-type and(More)
We have shown that NO and superoxide (O-*2)contribute to donor T cell-dependent lung dysfunction after bone marrow transplantation (BMT) in mice. We hypothesized that inhibiting superoxide production during inducible NO synthase induction would suppress oxidative/nitrative stress and result in less severe lung injury. Irradiated mice lacking the phagocytic(More)
