Lubricating recovery of damaged pleural mesothelium: effect of time and of phosphatidylcholines.

Abstract

Effect of time and phosphatidylcholines (PCs) on lubrication of damaged mesothelium has been investigated. Marked increase in coefficient of kinetic friction (μ) of pleural specimens after mesothelial blotting and rewetting decreased by 23.4±3.5%, 41.8±3.8%, and 40.5±2.7% after 30min, 1h, and 2h. Hence, damaged mesothelium is able to partially reset… (More)
