Protective effects of sialyl Lewis X and anti-P-selectin antibody against lipopolysaccharide-induced acute lung injury in rabbits.

The prophylactic effects of selectin inhibitors on lipopolysaccharide-induced acute lung injury were studied in rabbits by using sialyl Lewis X-oligosaccharide and PB1.3, an anti-human P-selectin monoclonal antibody. Lipopolysaccharide-induced acute lung injury resembles that of the acute respiratory distress syndrome, in which there is a decrease in… (More)
