Phagocytic cells such as alveolar macrophages (AM) or polymorphonuclear neutrophils (PMN) in the bronchoalveolar tract are a potential source of the oxygen-derived free radicals which are presumed to be involved in lung tissue damage. Previous results have shown that the methionine sulphoxide (MET(O)) content of bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BALF) protein is a reliable parameter to indicate oxidative processes in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF). We measured the molar ratio between MET(O… CONTINUE READING
