ABSTRACT. Offspring of experimentally induced diabetic animals demonstrate delays in functional, biochemical, and morphological aspects of lung maturation, dealing mainly with the surfactant system. To investigate whether the development of the lung antioxidant enzyme system would be similarly delayed, and thus compromise their tolerance to high O2 exposure, we did the following: 1) produced the diabetic state in rats with streptozotocin injection 24 h after the onset of pregnancy; 2) examined… CONTINUE READING
