The adult respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is an acute pulmonary disorder characterized by the accumulation of neutrophils within the lower respiratory tract. Because activation of the complement system can generate C5a, a potent neutrophil chemoattractant, complement activation was assessed in both serum and bronchoalveolar lavage fluid obtained from 10 patients with ARDS and compared with that from normal control subjects. Crossed immunoelectrophoresis was used to determine activation of… CONTINUE READING
