Cytokine response as a function of duration of gastric fluid aspiration. Cytokine levels in bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) fluid are shown after 4, 8, 12 and 16 weeks of aspiration. Levels of (a) IL-1alpha, (b) IL-1beta, (c) IL-2, and (d) TNF-alpha are shown.p < 0.10, ††p < 0.05 vs. right (untreated) lung after gastric fluid; *p < 0.10, **p < 0.05 vs. left (treated) lung after normal saline based on two-tailed Student's t test.
