Intratracheal instillation versus intratracheal inhalation: influence of cytokines on inflammatory response.

Abstract

Our laboratory has developed a method of particle exposure whereby anesthetized rats intratracheally inhale, at a regulated breathing rate and pressure, an aerosolized test material. This method is capable of delivering considerable doses in a short time period and, unlike the commonly used method of intratracheal instillation, does so with an even particle… (More)
