Cells staining for immunoreactive human epidermal growth factor were sought in the lungs and tracheas of human fetuses from 8 to 24 weeks of gestation. Lungs of liveborn infants from 25 to 40 weeks of gestation (stillborn to 7 months postnatal life), both with and without lung pathology, were also studied. In the early fetal trachea (12 to 15 weeks), many nonciliated cells immunostained for immunoreactive human epidermal growth factor in the lining epithelium. By 16 weeks of gestation this… CONTINUE READING
