1. The permeability of lung capillaries to macromolecules was investigated in immature and mature foetal lambs, new-born lambs and young sheep. The placental circulation of the foetal animals was maintained intact after delivery by Caesarian section. New-born lambs and sheep were mechanically ventilated. Samples of plasma and lymph that had drained from the lung via the thoracic duct were collected over a period of 1-5 hr.2. The proteins in plasma and lymph samples were separated by… CONTINUE READING
