BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: High-mobility group box 1 (HMGB1) protein is important in acute lung injury. However, the role of HMGB-1 in acute exacerbation of fibrosing interstitial pneumonia (AE-FIP) has not been adequately studied. METHODS: We prospectively measured serum HMGB1 level from disease onset to day 7 in 36 patients with AE-FIP6 patients had missing data because of early death (within 7 days). We then examined the association of HMGB1 level and outcome, and the associations of rhTM with HMGB1 level and outcome in 19 patients who were treated with rhTM (rhTM group) and 11 patients who were not (control group)...

PURPOSE/AIM: We performed a randomized, prospective animal study to investigate whether inhibiting the renin-angiotensin system with a (pro)renin receptor blocker (PRRB) prevents acute lung injury (ALI) in a rodent model. MATERIALS: We used Thirty-six male Sprague-Dawley rats. We administered lipopolysaccharide (LPS; 2 mg/kg) intratracheally with or without PRRB pretreatment (1 mg/kg/d). METHODS: We performed bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) and lung removal at 4 h after LPS administration and measured levels of inflammatory cytokines, high mobility group box 1 (HMGB-1) protein, and total protein in bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BALF)...
