Lipopolysaccharide-binding protein (LBP), a key participant in the inflammatory response to infection, is a type I acute phase response protein that is produced by airway epithelial cells, hepatocytes, and a myriad of other cell types and enhances the recognition of endotoxin and pathogens by the immune system [11, 12].
