The purpose of this study was to assess the phenotypic and functional characteristics of pulmonary microvascular endothelial cells (MVEC) in the acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). Pulmonary MVEC were isolated from the lungs of five patients who developed ARDS, and from four patients who had undergone a lobectomy for lung carcinoma, as controls. Adhesion molecules and other surface molecules were quantitated on these cells by flow cytometry and the cytokines IL-6 and IL-8 were measured… CONTINUE READING
