OBJECTIVE To observe the changes of the levels of cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) and cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP) in acutely isolated alveolar type II (ATII) cells from rats with acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), and test the effects of terbutaline on the cAMP and cGMP levels. METHODS SD rats were randomized into the control, ARDS, and terbutaline treatment groups, in which the cAMP and cGMP contents in the ATII cells were measured using radioimmunoassay, and the… CONTINUE READING
