Bronchoalveolar lavages were studied in control subjects and patients with extrinsic allergic alveolitis. Phospholipids, fatty acid composition of the different phospholipid species found and cholesterol were investigated. In allergic alveolitis, the phosphatidylcholine was absent, whereas two usually minor components in lung surfactant, phosphatidylethanolamine and phosphatidylinositol, were considerably enhanced. The tensio-active properties of the phospholipids present in fluids were… CONTINUE READING
