Effect of dexamethasone therapy on fibronectin and albumin levels in lung secretions of infants with bronchopulmonary dysplasia.

Abstract

The influence of dexamethasone on levels of total fibronectin (tFn), cellular fibronectin (cFn), plasma fibronectin (pFn), and albumin in lung secretions was determined in tracheal aspirate samples collected from 45 infants with bronchopulmonary dysplasia during a 6-week course of dexamethasone therapy. Secretory component for IgA (SC) was used as a… (More)
