Polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMN) are the predominant inflammatory cells recruited in acute lung injury. This study compares the concentration of interleukin-8 (IL-8) to those of GRO alpha, both of which are CXC chemokines, in bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BALF) in three acute pathologic states: bacterial pneumonia (BPN); adult respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS); and Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia (PCP). Levels of both IL-8 and GRO alpha were below 5 pg/ml in 16 nonsmoking volunteers who… CONTINUE READING
