Título Effect of hydrogen sulfide on bacterial inactivation in the rat lung
Información bibliográfica Sep.-Oct. 1981, Vol.36, No.5, p.261-264. Illus. 23 ref.
Resumen Rats were exposed to 45ppm hydrogen sulfide (H2S) (TLV 10ppm) for 4 or 6h, and a significant reduction in the inactivation of viable staphylococci deposited in the lungs during a bacterial aerosol challenge was observed. Pre-exposure of rats to 46ppm H2S for 2h did not alter intrapulmonary staphylococcal inactivation. The impairment of the alveolar macrophage may account for this effect.
