Upregulation of the anti-inflammatory mediators, soluble tumor necrosis factor-alpha receptors I and II (sTNFRI/RII) and interleukin-1 receptor antagonist (IL-1RA), by granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) may contribute to the pathophysiology of lung injury. We determined the relation of endogenous G-CSF to proinflammatory and anti-inflammatory… CONTINUE READING
