1)In vivo experiments
(1)An Administration of niacin or nicotinamide inhibited oxidant-induced acute lung injury.
(2)Elastase induced detachment of airway epithelium, and SLPI protected the cells from the detachment.
(3)Neutrophil sequestration induced by G-CSF did not produce acute inflammation in the lung.
(4)P-selectin antagonist inhibited acute lung inflammation induced by LPS.
2)In vitro experiments
(1)Oxidant induced necrosis and/or apoptosis in the airway epithelium, and these effects ware in dose-and time-dependent fashion.
(2)TNF alpha induced apoptosis in the lung fibroblasts.
(3)Depletion of cystine induced apoptosis in the lung fibroblasts and airway epithelium. These findings suggest that intra-celluar reactive oxygen may be associated with signal transduction of apoptosis.
