To examine the role of the fibrinolytic system in LPS-induced airway disease, we compared the effect of a chronic LPS challenge in plasminogen activator inhibitor-deficient (C57BL/6JPAI-1-/-) mice and wild-type (WT) C57BL/6J mice. Physiological and biological assessments were performed, immediately after, and 4 wk after an 8-wk exposure to LPS or saline. Immediately after the LPS exposure, WT mice had increased estimates of airway reactivity to methacholine compared with C57BL/6JPAI-1-/- mice… CONTINUE READING
