The epithelium of the lung is lined with extracellular pulmonary surfactant. This is the surface that invading bacteria first come into contact with when they enter the alveoli. As bacteria become established and interact with this layer, various characteristics of surfactant may become altered. We studied free radical production by three bacterial species… CONTINUE READING
