The role of placenta growth factor in the hyperoxia-induced acute lung injury in an animal model.


Prolonged exposure to hyperoxia leads to acute lung injury. Alveolar type II cells are main target of hyperoxia-induced lung injury. However, the cellular and molecular mechanisms remain unknown. Here, we aimed to investigate the role of placental growth factor (PLGF) in hyperoxia-induced lung injury. Using experimental hyperoxia-induced lung injury model… (More)
