Exposure to high levels of inspired oxygen leads to respiratory failure and death in many animal models. Endothelial cell death is an early finding, before the onset of respiratory failure. Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is highly expressed in the lungs of adult animals. In the present study, adult Sprague-Dawley rats were exposed to >95% FiO2(More)
Chronic lung disease in neonates results from both lung injury and inadequate repair processes. Little is known about the growth factors involved in lung injury and repair, but vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) has recently been reported in several animal models of lung injury. VEGF is an endothelial cell-specific mitogen, which is also known as(More)
BACKGROUND Other than relapse, pulmonary complications are the most common cause of mortality in patients who undergo bone marrow transplantation (BMT). Diffuse alveolar hemorrhage (DAH) is one noninfectious pulmonary complication of BMT. Presenting clinical findings include nonproductive cough usually without hemoptysis, dyspnea, hypoxemia, a decrease in(More)
