The respiratory units of the chronically ventilated preterm baboons were described as large simplified distal saccules, with walls that contained increased numbers of mesenchymal and mononuclear cells, and focal deposition of elastin and collagen fibers. Subsequent studies showed decreased pulmonary expression of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and two VEGF receptors (Flt-1 and TIE1) in the baboons with BPD, which may help to explain their reduced capillary volume density (38). A recent report also demonstrated reduced abundance of both endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) and inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS), coupled with decreased NOS activity in the lungs of these baboons.

Other less potent diuretics, specifically thiazides and spironolactone, have BPD in Postsurfactant Era 33 been shown to improve pulmonary function and gas exchange in infants with BPD without apparent toxicity. G. Retinol Treatment Retinoids have been shown to have a profound influence on lung development and healing of lung injury in experimental animals (135–143). Because plasma concentrations of retinol are low in very premature infants compared to infants born at term, and particularly low in infants who acquire BPD (144,145), clinical trials of retinol treatment have been conducted in very premature infants with low plasma concentrations of retinol to determine the effects of retinol supplementation on the incidence of BPD (146,147).
