Abstract

Objective: To verify if secretory phospholipase A2 (sPLA2) is increased in pediatric acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) triggered or not by respiratory syncytial virus infection and to clarify how the enzyme may influence the disease severity and the degree of ventilatory support. Design: Prospective pilot study. Setting: Two academic pediatric intensive care units. Patients: All infants
