The NLRP3 inflammasome is a multiprotein complex made of specific NLR oligomers, procaspase-1 and ASC, which are known to mediate VILI. To determine whether the NLRP3 inflammasome is activated by cyclic stretching of HPMECs, we analyzed the expression of the NLRP3 and caspase-1 (p20) proteins.
Effect of [H.sub.2]S on Oxidative Stress in VILI. While antioxidant glutathione levels were alike in [H.sub.2]S controls and air ventilated mice compared to nonventilated controls, glutathione levels were enhanced by [H.sub.2]S application during mechanical ventilation (blue staining, Figure 3(a)).
In this study, we hypothesized that VILI induced EMP release by altering the cytoskeleton in which PAK4 was involved.
In 14 VILI negative cases 4 showed biopsy positive representing false negative rate of VILI as 30.4%
Taken together, our initial studies demonstrated that modifications of vascular pressure upstream from the alveolus could influence the severity of VILI inflicted by an unchanging adverse pattern of ventilation.
Mary Kay, now 47, and Vili Fualaau, now 26, are clearly on the make.
