These data are consistent with bronchoalveolar lavage studies in premature infants exposed to mechanical ventilation where neutrophils were detected at 3–4 days, whereas macrophages were predominantly observed after 10 days [44]. M. Ramos et al. Migration to the lung and activation of neutrophils and macrophages are mediated largely via proinflammatory cytokines. Tracheal aspirates of premature infants with BPD show an increase of chemoattractant factors such as IL-8, IL-6, TNFα, IL-1, IL-16, complement component 5a (C5a), lipoxygenase products, leukotriene B4, elastin fragments, fibronectin, MCP, macrophage inflammatory protein (MIP), etc.
