Collagen in lung tissue was examined from patients with adult respiratory distress syndrome, from patients who did not have this disease but required mechanical ventilation and oxygen treatment, and from patients without overt lung disease. Cyanogen bromide peptide mapping techniques were used to determine the ratio of type I to type III collagen present in these lungs. In the fibrotic lungs from patients with adult respiratory distress syndrome a shift was found in the ratio of type I to type… CONTINUE READING
