Myeloperoxidase activity as a lung injury marker in the lamb model of congenital diaphragmatic hernia.

Abstract

PURPOSE The antioxidant system is the primary intracellular defense system of the lung against oxygen toxicity (neutrophil sequestration). The CDH lamb model antioxidant system is deficient. It is hypothesized that pulmonary neutrophil sequestration may play a part in the acute lung injury of CDH patients. Myeloperoxidase (MPO) is a major constituent of… (More)
