Intratracheal administration of endotoxin and cytokines. IV. The soluble tumor necrosis factor receptor type I inhibits acute inflammation.


Endotoxin lipopolysaccharide (LPS) administered intratracheally to rats causes pulmonary tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF) and interleukin-1 (IL-1) production and results in acute broncho-alveolar neutrophilic inflammation. In the present study, the recombinant human TNF soluble receptor type I (sTNFrI) co-injected intratracheally with LPS is shown to… (More)
