The lung is vulnerable to trauma; pulmonary edema starts quickly as part of the systemic responses involved in shock. The present study investigated the molecular pathology of posttraumatic alveolar damage and responses involving pulmonary edema in forensic autopsy cases of injury (n = 66) compared with acute cardiac death cases (n = 13). Intrapulmonary mRNA and immunohistochemical expressions of matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs; MMP-2 and MMP-9), intercellular adhesion molecule-1, claudin-5… CONTINUE READING
