Functional contribution of CXCR2 to lung injury after aspiration of acid and gastric particulates.

Abstract

The effects of individual ELR+ CXC chemokines have been documented in experimental models of acid aspiration. However, aspiration lung injury would be influenced by the combined effects of these chemokines and other factors related to their function. Therefore, the role of the chemokine receptor CXCR2 was examined in lung injury induced by aspiration of… (More)
