Summary

The Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) is a major cause of mortality and morbidity in critically ill patients. There are no proven effective pharmacologic therapies for the syndrome in part because the current understanding of the causes of ARDS is limited. The aims of this study are to examine the role that extracellular micro RNA play in the endothelial and epithelial dysfunction which occurs in ARDS.
