    Postoperative lung injury after lung cancer resection is still a difficult problem to be solved. Thrombomodulin (TM) is a membrane-bound glycoprotein of endothelial cells, and its serum level is elevated in patients with acute lung injury or acute respiratory distress syndrome. In fact, TM is...
