    Aim: Recently studies showed that volatile anesthetics affect the ciliary beat frequency in vitro. We know that impairment of ciliary beat frequency is related to a risk of pulmonary complications with general anesthesia. Other studies have also shown that exposure to a volatile anesthetic can...

    Abstract. Drug-metabolising enzymatic activities have been detected in tracheobronchiolar, bronchiolar and alveolar regions in the lungs. Induction of phospholipidosis by amine drugs such as clorphentermine has also been shown. This study aimed to investigate the effect of fluoxetine and...

    Background: While the functional consequences of acute pulmonary infections are widely documented, few studies focused on chronic pneumonia. We evaluated the consequences of chronic Pseudomonas lung infection on alveolar function. Methods: P. aeruginosa, included in agar beads, was instilled...

    The objective of this study is to establish normal ranges for the assessment of lung permeability, using 99mTc DTPA (diethylene triamine penta acetate) aerosol by measuring the half-time of transfer from the lung in asymptomatic HIV-positive patients. Also to audit the use of the test in the...

    Background: Clearance of inhaled technetium-labeled diethylenetriamine pentaacetate (99mTc-DTPA) is a marker of epithelial damage and an index of lung epithelial permeability. The aim of this study was to investigate the role of 99mTc-DTPA scan in patients with Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis...

    The aim of this prospective study was to assess pulmonary and intestinal permeability (PP and IP, respectively) in patients with alcoholic liver cirrhosis (ALC). Thirty-five non-smoking patients with biopsy-proven ALC were included (mean grade B in Child's classification). None had a previous...
