The lung and oxygen toxicity

, : The lung and oxygen toxicity. Archives of Internal Medicine 139(3): 347-350

The toxic effects of prolonged exposure to O2 during [human] hyperoxic therapy are separable into an acute or edematous-exudative phase of O2 toxicity and a subacute or chronic proliferative phase. O2 toxicity is manifested by a characteristic pattern of inhibition of lung cell nucleotide and protein synthesis. The O2-free radicals and pulmonary antioxidant enzyme defense systems are discussed. An important feature lacking in the experimental studies of O2 toxicity is an explanation of individual variation in susceptibility/resistance to O2 toxicity.

Evidence for lung oxygen toxicity in air-breathing rats. Exposure of rats to hyperoxia or to treatment with endotoxin, increases lung manganese superoxide dismutase (MnSOD) gene expression. However, the paths by which these environmental signals are transduced into enhanced MnSOD gene expression are unk...
