Abstract:

We have demonstrated over the past three years that JP-8 and S-8 jet fuels have different sites of primary injury in the lungs. Additionally, we have determined that S-8 jet fuel generates a higher nitric oxide response than JP-8 jet fuel. These data have major implications for the U.S. Armed Forces as synthetic fuels development increases to replace oil sources.
