Pulmonary surfactant (PS) dysfunction because of the leakage of serum proteins into the alveolar space could be an operative pathogenesis in acute respiratory distress syndrome. Albumin-inhibited PS is a commonly used in vitro model for studying surfactant abnormality in acute respiratory distress syndrome. However, the mechanism by which PS is inhibited by albumin remains controversial. This study investigated the film organization of albumin-inhibited bovine lipid extract surfactant (BLES… CONTINUE READING
