Abstract

Bronchoalveolar lavage, performed on 15 healthy volunteers, enabled quantification and characterization of the alveolar cell populations. The subjects studied were 8 nonsmokers (5 males, 3 females) and 7 smokers (6 males, 1 female). It was found that in the smokers the macrophages increased compared with nonsmokers, both in absolute number (419, 000 vs. 138, 000/ml; p<0.005) and in percentage (93.8 ± 3.0 vs. 88.1 ±4.8%; p
