This study was designed to evaluate the effect of type 2 cell proliferation, and specifically mitosis, on the surfactant system after lung injury. Lung injury was produced in mice with butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT). The LB volume density and the LB area of tritiated thymidine (3H-T) labeled and mitotic type 2 cells were determined by combining light… CONTINUE READING
