Continuous exposure to 100% oxygen at atmospheric pressure for two weeks causes significant alterations in the growth of the lung and the body of newborn mice. These changes can be divided into three phases. The initial phase, which lasts 96 hours, is characterized by inhibition of lung DNA synthesis, diminished total lung DNA, and a decrease in the ratio(More)
ABSTRACT: The effect of dexamethasone (0.1, 1, and 5 mg/kg/d given subcutaneously from d 14-18) was tested in infant mice continuously exposed from birth to either humidified air or 80% oxygen. Dexamethasone significantly decreased lung wet wt (p<0.01), lung water (p<0.021), lung dry wt, protein, and DNA (p<0.001) in both airand oxygen-exposed animals.(More)
