Antisense intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1) oligodeoxyribonucleotide delivered during organ preservation inhibits posttransplant ICAM-1 expression and reduces primary lung isograft failure.


Transiently increased expression of leukocyte adhesion receptors after lung preservation contributes to early graft demise by recruiting leukocytes, activating complement, and causing microcirculatory stasis. We hypothesized that inhibiting intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1) expression even briefly may significantly improve lung graft function and… (More)
