Role of glutathione in lung retention of 99mTc-hexamethylpropyleneamine oxime in two unique rat models of hyperoxic lung injury.


Rat exposure to 60% oxygen (O(2)) for 7 days (hyper-60) or to >95% O(2) for 2 days followed by 24 h in room air (hyper-95R) confers susceptibility or tolerance, respectively, of the otherwise lethal effects of subsequent exposure to 100% O(2). The objective of this study was to determine if lung retention of the radiopharmaceutical agent technetium-labeled… (More)
