Sputum dipalmitoylphosphatidylcholine level as a novel airway inflammatory marker in asthmatic childrenShaheen, Malak ; Mahmoud, M.A. ; Abdel Aziz, M.M. ; El Morsy, H.I. ; Abdel Khalik, K.A.
AbstractPulmonary surfactant is a unique mixture of lipids and surfactant-specific proteins. Phosphatidylcholine comprises almost 80% of the total surfactant lipids, about half of which is dipalmitoylphosphatidylcholine (DPPC). Alteration of surfactant composition and function is documented with various airway or lung parenchyma disorders.
