Intratracheal instillation of endotoxin (LPS) causes acute pulmonary inflammation characterized by the accumulation of plasma proteins and leukocytes within the pulmonary airways. The synthetic glucocorticoid dexamethasone 1) inhibits the LPS-initiated vascular leak of plasma proteins into the airspace, 2) inhibits the LPS-initiated emigration of(More)
Diesel exhaust particles (DEPs) are known to induce allergic responses in airway epithelial cells, such as the production of various cytokines via nuclear factor-kappa B (NF-kappaB). However, the intracellular signal transduction pathways underlying this phenomenon have not been fully examined. This study showed that DEP induced NF-kappaB activity via(More)
The expression and cellular localization of neuronal nitric oxide (NO) synthase (nNOS) were studied in the rabbit spinal cord following ischemic injury induced by clamping the descending aorta. In the normal spinal cord, nNOS immunoreactivity was localized to certain motor neurons located in the margin of the ventral horn. Following transient ischemia,(More)
