In 93 preterm infants ≤32 weeks of gestational age and 12 control infants, epithelial lining fluid disaturated-phosphatidylcholine, surfactant protein A and B, albumin, and myeloperoxidase activity were assessed after intubation and before exogenous surfactant administration. We found that disaturated-phosphatidylcholine, surfactant protein B, and myeloperoxidase were significantly higher in preterms with chorioamnionitis.

Abstract

In 93 preterm infants ≤32 weeks of gestational age and 12 control infants, epithelial lining fluid disaturated-phosphatidylcholine, surfactant protein A and B, albumin, and myeloperoxidase activity were assessed after intubation and before exogenous surfactant administration. We found that disaturated-phosphatidylcholine, surfactant protein B, and myeloperoxidase were significantly higher in preterms with chorioamnionitis.
