INTRODUCTION Available literature suggests that the advantage of animal-derived surfactants over first-generation synthetic agents derives from the presence of surface-active proteins and their phospholipid content. Here we summarize the results of clinical trials comparing animal-derived surfactant preparations with other animal-derived surfactants and with both first-and second-generation synthetic surfactants. METHODS Published clinical trials of comparisons of animal-derived surfactants… CONTINUE READING
