Surfactant lipids in the alveolar space are believed to play an important role in normal respiratory function. Although the surface-active phospholipids have been extensively studied, the possible role of glycolipids in the surfactant remains to be explored. We have studied the glycolipid composition of cell-free bronchoalveolar lavage from healthy subjects and from adult patients with respiratory distress syndrome. Glycolipids were barely detectable in bronchoalveolar lavage from healthy… Expand
Role of Sphingolipids in the Pathobiology of Lung Inflammation
Sphingolipid bioactivities in the respiratory airways and the roles of the proteins that handle them have been extensively investigated. Gas or inhaled particles or microorganisms come into contactExpand
Improved pulmonary function by acid sphingomyelinase inhibition in a newborn piglet lavage model.
RATIONALE In acute inflammatory lung disease in newborn infants, exogenous surfactant only transiently improves lung function. We hypothesized that the transient nature of this protection is in partExpand
Changes in surfactant in bronchoalveolar lavage fluid after hemithorax irradiation in patients with mesothelioma.
TLDR
The protein-rich supernatant fraction of BAL from irradiated lung had a inhibitory effect on normal surfactant, and there were significant correlations between the increasing severity of the radiologic changes on the one hand and the saturated phosphatidylcholine/sphingomyelin ratio in ELF. Expand
Exogenous Surfactant Treatments for Neonatal Respiratory Distress Syndrome and their Potential Role in the Adult Respiratory Distress Syndrome
TLDR
Natural and lipid-extracted surfactants derived from amniotic fluid, lung lavage, or lung homogenates are being used in worldwide clinical trials in premature infants, demonstrating a generally favourable influence on lung function by improving oxygénation and reducing the risk for pneumothorax and pulmonary interstitial emphysema. Expand
Effects of intratracheal instillation of TNF-α on surfactant metabolism
TLDR
Observations indicate that TNF-alpha decreases the levels of surfactant lipid by decreasing the activity of a key enzyme involved in surfactants lipid synthesis. Expand
Effects of intratracheal instillation of TNF-alpha on surfactant metabolism.
TLDR
Observations indicate that TNF-alpha decreases the levels of surfactant lipid by decreasing the activity of a key enzyme involved in surfactants lipid synthesis. Expand
Ceramides: a potential therapeutic target in pulmonary emphysema
TLDR
Since addition of a serine palmitoyltransferase inhibitor diminished the rise in ceramides and ameliorated lung function, ceramide likely contributed to the early phase of alveolar destruction and are a potential therapeutic target in the elastase model of lung emphysema. Expand
Chronic lung injury and impaired pulmonary function in a mouse model of acid ceramidase deficiency.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that a deficiency in ACDase leads to sphingolipid and phospholipids imbalance, chronic lung injury caused by significant inflammation, and increased vascular permeability, leading to impaired lung function. Expand
Lipid content of alveolar lining material collected by bronchoalveolar lavage. Improved methods for measuring the major lipid classes.
TLDR
En enzymatic methods for measuring the major phospholipid classes found in human bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BALF), namely phosphatidylcholine and phosph atidylglycerol, as well as the neutral lipid cholesterol, can facilitate the characterization of the major surfactant-associated lipids in BALF and foster improved understanding of the role of these lipids. Expand
Surfactant phospholipid metabolism.
TLDR
The study of surfactant phospholipid metabolism has focused on two predominant components, disaturated phosphatidylcholine that confers surface-tension lowering activities, and phosphate-based lipid components, recently implicated in innate immune defense. Expand

Characteristics of pulmonary surfactant in adult respiratory distress syndrome associated with trauma and shock.
TLDR
Broncho-alveolar lavage fluid was obtained from a 24-year-old man who developed the adult respiratory distress syndrome one day after massive trauma and hemorrhagic shock, and changes in the lipid-to-protein ratios of the purified lipid-protein aggregates were found; only one major aggregate could be recovered from the lavages of normal lungs. Expand
Elastolytic activity in pulmonary lavage fluid from patients with adult respiratory-distress syndrome.
TLDR
It is concluded that in many patients with ARDS, high levels of neutrophil elastolytic activity in the lungs are associated with reduced alpha-1-AP function. Expand
Evidence of lung surfactant abnormality in respiratory failure. Study of bronchoalveolar lavage phospholipids, surface activity, phospholipase activity, and plasma myoinositol.
TLDR
In respiratory failure, the lipid-protein complexes from lung lavage were not surface active, whereas that from healthy controls had surface properties similar to lung surfactant, and phospholipids from patients with respiratory failure were similar to those from respiratory distress syndrome in the newborn. Expand
Studies on the pathogenesis of the adult respiratory distress syndrome.
TLDR
In BAL fluids from all 24 patients with ARDS, leukocytic elastase and/or alpha1-PI exist, and in some cases where active enzyme and alpha 1-PI coexisted, free, but inactive alpha2-PI was present, suggesting the presence of an enzyme-inhibitor complex. Expand
Lipids found in pulmonary lavage of patients with alveolar proteinosis and in rabbit lung lamellar organelles.
TLDR
A striking difference between the lipids from these 2 sources was that phosphatidylglycerol of lamellar organelles contained predominantly palmitic acid, whereas the phosphatids obtained by lavage of humans contained large amounts of stearic and oleic acids. Expand

Acute respiratory distress in adults.
TLDR
Positive end-expiratory pressure was most helpful in combating atelectasis and hypoxaemia and Corticosteroids appeared to have value in the treatment of patients with fat-embolism and possibly viral pneumonia. Expand
The neutral glyceroglucolipids of alveolar lavage from rabbit.
TLDR
Three individual glycolipids have been isolated from the neutral lipid fraction of rabbit alveolar lavage and differed from each other primarily with respect to the number of glucose residues. Expand
Blood-group A and the related glycolipids of human lung.
TLDR
Three glucosamine-containing sphingoglycolipids were isolated from human lung tissue of a blood group-A subject, and the following chemical structure was proposed on the basis of sequential glycosidase treatment and methylation analysis. Expand
Neutral glycosphingolipids and gangliosides of human lung and lung tumours.
TLDR
The profiles of two major classes of glycosphingolipids occurring in lung tumours are almost as complex as those of the parent tissue, a finding in contrast with the notably simplified patterns of these lipids found in many cancer cells grown in vitro. Expand
