Effect of concentration on albumin diffusion in lung interstitium.


The transport of macromolecules through the lung interstitium depends on both bulk transport of fluid and diffusion. In the present study, we studied the diffusion of albumin. Isolated rabbit lungs were inflated with silicon rubber via airways and blood vessels, and two chambers were bonded to the sides of a 0.5-cm-thick slab that enclosed a vessel with an… (More)
