[Study of rat beta-defensin-2 gene and protein expression in ventilator-associated pneumonia].

Abstract

OBJECTIVE To study the changes in the expression of rat beta-defensin-2 (RBD-2) gene in the lung tissue with P. aeruginosa (PA) pneumonia following tracheal mechanical ventilation (MV), and to evaluate the pathogenesis of ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP). METHODS A total of 58 normal healthy Sprague-Dawley rats, weighing between 280 and 320 g, were… (More)
