Pentoxifylline prevents a decrease in arterial oxygen tension in oleic acid-induced lung injury.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES a) To determine whether pentoxifylline has a preventive effect on the decrease in PaO2 that is caused by oleic acid, and whether pentoxifylline facilitates normalization of PaO2 from the decreased state. b) To examine whether pentoxifylline can attenuate an increase in pulmonary vascular permeability that is induced by oleic acid.
