Elevated concentrations of leukotriene D4 in pulmonary edema fluid of patients with the adult respiratory distress syndrome

Abstract

The possible contribution of metabolites of arachidonic acid to the increased permeability of the alveolar-capillary barrier in the adult respiratory distress syndrome was examined by quantifying the pulmonary edema fluid concentrations of lipoxygenase and cyclooxygenase products. The concentration of leukotriene D4 in pulmonary edema fluid of 10 patients… (More)
