Beige mice express the Chediak-Higashi syndrome. Large inclusions, identified as abnormal lysosomes, are found in many cells. The inclusions in type II alveolar epithelial cells are enlarged lamellar bodies and they are associated with an increase in total lung surface-active material and phospholipid. Comparison of recovery of phospholipid in(More)
Delivery of M. nemestrina at 80% of normal gestation provides a population of neonates at high risk for hyaline membrane disease (HMD). The diagnosis of HMD was made by the presence of reticulogranular densities and air bronchograms on chest radiographs. Patchy atelectasis was seen in the lungs of animals assigned by clinical and radiographic criteria to(More)
To test the hypothesis that decreased mortality from severe HMD will result in increased morbidity from BPD, chest films of 30-day survivors of severe HMD were reviewed for evidence of Northway's Stage IV BPD. During July, 1970 to June, 1971, 20 survivors of severe HMD were identified; one case of Stage IV BPD was found in this group. During July 1974-June(More)
