The aim of this study was to investigate the expression of inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) in lungs of patients with or without adult respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). We compared the expression of iNOS by immunohistochemical analysis and polymerase chain reaction in the human lungs collected during open-lung biopsy or at autopsy. The expression of iNOS mRNA was present in all lung samples; however, only 3 out of 11 lung samples showed weak staining for iNOS. Although the involvement… CONTINUE READING
