dc.description.abstractProtein synthesis was compared in tissue cultures of rabbit alveolar macrophages exposed to tobacco smoke and non-exposed controls. One experiment was carried out which indicated that a 9:1 dilution of tobacco smoke stimulated protein synthesis,as measured by 14C-leucine uptake, after 48 hours but not after 24 hours. Before additional experiments could be preformed, however, the rabbits contracted a lung infection which prevented the successful culture of additional macrophages. A discussion of the latest research on experimental emphysema is included in the introduction.en_US
