Detection of inflammation and oxidative lung injury in exhaled breath condensate of rats with acute lung injury due to Staphylococcal enterotoxin B.


The objectives were to determine if tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α, leukotriene (LT)B4 and 8-isoprostane (IP) were present in the exhaled breath condensate (EBC) and total lung lavage (TLL) of mechanically ventilated rats, 4 and 24 h after administration of Staphylococcal entertoxin (SEB) and to find out if these mediators in the EBC correlate with the… (More)
