Role of caveolin-1 expression in the pathogenesis of pulmonary edema in ventilator-induced lung injury
Caveolin-1 is a key regulator of pulmonary endothelial barrier function. Here, we tested the hypothesis that caveolin-1 expression is required for ventilator-induced lung injury (VILI). Caveolin-1Expand

Differential Expression of Aquaporins in Experimental Models of Acute Lung Injury.
AIM The mammalian lung expresses at least three aquaporin (AQP) water channels whose precise role in lung injury or inflammation is still controversial. MATERIALS AND METHODS Three murine models ofExpand

Caveolar Uptake and Endothelial-Protective Effects of Nanostructured Lipid Carriers in Acid Aspiration Murine Acute Lung Injury
ABSTRACTPurposeNanostructured lipid carriers (NLC), nanosized phospholipids/triglyceride particles developed for drug delivery, are considered biologically inactive. We assessed the efficacy ofExpand

Early serum levels of soluble triggering receptor expressed on myeloid cells-1 in septic patients: correlation with monocyte gene expression.
PURPOSE To define early kinetics of soluble triggering receptor expressed on myeloid cells-1 (sTREM-1) and of TREM-1 monocyte gene expression in critically ill patients with sepsis. METHODS BloodExpand

Plasma retinol and tocopherol levels in Greek elderly population from an urban and a rural area: Associations with the dietary habits
Data on plasma concentrations of retinol and α-tocopherol in elderly (over 65 years) living in the Mediterranean countries are sparse. In the current study, plasma retinol and α-tocopherolExpand

Metformin attenuates ventilator-induced lung injury
IntroductionDiabetic patients may develop acute lung injury less often than non-diabetics; a fact that could be partially ascribed to the usage of antidiabetic drugs, including metformin. MetforminExpand
