Increased soluble ICAM-1 in tracheal aspirates of infants with bronchopulmonary dysplasia.


Raised concentrations of soluble intracellular adhesion molecule 1 (sICAM-1) in tracheal aspirates from premature infants may predict development of bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD). We measured sICAM-1 in tracheal aspirates and serum samples from 15 newborn babies (9 with BPD, 6 without BPD) at 2-4, 6-7, and 12-14 days of age. sICAM-1 concentrations in… (More)
