Attenuation of lipopolysaccharide-induced oxidative stress and apoptosis in fetal pulmonary artery endothelial cells by hypoxia.

Abstract

Pulmonary vascular endothelial injury resulting from lipopolysaccharide (LPS) and oxygen toxicity contributes to vascular simplification seen in the lungs of premature infants with bronchopulmonary dysplasia. Whether the severity of endotoxin-induced endothelial injury is modulated by ambient oxygen tension (hypoxic intrauterine environment vs. hyperoxic… (More)
