American Thoracic Society Journal news tips for November 2003 (first issue)

les obtained from premature infants within the first week of life contained low levels of surfactant proteins A, B, and C. Yet, after more than one week, despite continuing lung disease, some of the infants in the study had surfactant with normal in vitro function. The results showed that their tracheal aspirate samples contained all the surfactant proteins at levels comparable to those in adults. Surfactant is a substance that coats the lining of the tiny air sacs of the lungs (alveoli) and reduces their surface tension, preventing them from collapsing. Premature infants frequently experience respiratory distress because of a lack of surfactant. The research is published in the first issue for November 2003 of the American Thoracic Society's peer-reviewed American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine.
