Comparative Evaluation of Heterologous Production Systems for Recombinant Pulmonary Surfactant Protein D

Abstract

Commercial surfactant products derived from animal lungs are used for the treatment of respiratory diseases in premature neonates. These products contain lipids and the hydrophobic surfactant proteins B and C, which help to lower the surface tension in the lungs. Surfactant products are less effective when pulmonary diseases involve inflammatory… (More)
