Pulmonary inflammation due to oxygen toxicity: involvement of chemotactic factors and polymorphonuclear leukocytes.

Abstract

Although the pathogenesis of pulmonary oxygen toxicity is not fully understood, the fact that increased numbers of polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMN) are found in the lung and that these increases coincide with the massive endothelial damage raises the possibility that PMN may contribute to lung injury caused by hyperoxia. In order to begin to elucidate a… (More)
