Intraoperative cell salvage during cardiac surgery is associated with reduced postoperative lung injury.
Utrecht, Netherlands. In Interact Cardiovasc Thorac Surg, Jan 2016
METHODS: Serial measurements of systemic plasma concentrations of interleukin-6 (IL-6), myeloperoxidase, elastase, surfactant protein D (SP-D), Clara cell 16 kD protein (CC16) and soluble receptor for advanced glycation endproducts (sRAGEs) were performed on blood samples from 195 patients who underwent cardiac surgery with the use of a cell salvage (CS) device (CS, n = 99) or without (CONTROL, n = 96).
Clara cell 10-kD protein in inflammatory upper airway diseases.
Wuhan, China. In Curr Opin Allergy Clin Immunol, 2013
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: To discuss the role of Clara cell 10-kD protein (CC10), an anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory molecule, in inflammatory upper airway diseases, particularly in allergic rhinitis and chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS).
