Studies polymorphonuclear neutrophil (PMN) activation during the acute respiratory distress syndrome by researchers from Paris, France. Skepticism's among the scientific community over limitations of the clinically based definitions; Recommendations for a more mechanistic definitions based in inflammatory criteria particularly related to pulmonary polymorphonuclear neutrophil recruitment and activation; Role of PMN on the induction of a series of events that culminate in parenchymal injury.
