Receptor for advanced glycation end-products is a marker of type I cell injury in acute lung injury.
RATIONALE Receptor for advanced glycation end-products (RAGE) is one of the alveolar type I cell-associated proteins in the lung. OBJECTIVES To test the hypothesis that RAGE is a marker of alveolarExpand

Cytosolic Phospholipase A2 Inhibition Attenuates Ischemia-Reperfusion Injury in an Isolated Rat Lung Model
Background. Arachidonic acid metabolites and platelet-activating factor (PAF) are potentially involved in ischemia-reperfusion (IR) lung injury. A key enzyme regulating their metabolism is cytosolicExpand

Cost-effectiveness associated with the diagnosis and staging of non-small-cell lung cancer.
OBJECTIVE We evaluated how much time and money could be saved without compromising overall results in treating lung cancer. SUBJECTS AND METHODS We retrospectively evaluated 318 patients for T- andExpand

Aprotinin attenuated ischemia-reperfusion injury in an isolated rat lung model after 18-hours preservation.
OBJECTIVE Ischemia-reperfusion injury is a major factor in the early phase of lung transplantation. We hypothesized that aprotinin, a nonspecific serine protease inhibitor, attenuatesExpand
