Impaired neonatal macrophage phagocytosis is not explained by overproduction of prostaglandin E2

Abstract

BACKGROUND Neonates and young infants manifest increased susceptibility to bacterial, viral and fungal lung infections. Previous work has identified a role for eicosanoids in mediating host defense functions of macrophages. This study examines the relationship between alveolar macrophage (AM) host defense and production of lipid mediators during the… (More)
