Inhaled platelet-activating factor causes pulmonary neutrophil sequestration in normal humans.

Abstract

Inhaled platelet-activating factor (PAF) causes bronchoconstriction and transient peripheral neutropenia in humans. We studied eight normal subjects to investigate whether inhaled PAF caused pulmonary neutrophil sequestration. All subjects received autologous 99mTc-red cells as a blood pool marker, seven received 111In-neutrophils, and one received 111In… (More)
