Previous studies by others [25-27] and ourselves [28-30] have shown that mitochondrial transfusion effectively protects against acute organ damage, including sepsis-induced acute lung injury [13, 25], acute ischemia-reperfusion injury of the heart [27], liver [26, 28], and lung [30], and monocrotaline-induced pulmonary arterial hypertension [29].
ARDS (with mild ARDS being a term for acute lung injury (ALI)) is defined as an "acute diffuse, inflammatory lung injury" caused by primary pulmonary factors (e.g., pneumonia and pulmonary contusion) or secondary harmful events (e.g., polytrauma, shock, burns, and aspiration) [105, 106].

ARDS is a severe form of acute lung injury that occurs as a complication of diverse insults, including sepsis, massive aspiration, and trauma; it has a mortality rate of 30 percent to 50 percent, even with state-of-the-art modern medical care in an intensive care unit (Villar et al.
