Cannabis Use and Bleomycin: An Overview and Case Study of Pulmonary Toxicity.

08:00 EDT 1st August 2018 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Cannabis Use and Bleomycin: An Overview and Case Study of Pulmonary Toxicity."

Legalization efforts in many states have heightened awareness of the medicinal uses of cannabis, and oncology nurses are more frequently caring for patients who have used or are using cannabis. Significant epidemiologic data on the prevalence of cannabis use in patients with cancer are not yet available, and not much is known about the effects of cannabis on cancer treatment.

Alcohol and Cannabis Use Alter Pulmonary Innate Immunity.

Cannabis use is increasing due to recent legislative changes. In addition, cannabis is often used in conjunction with alcohol. The airway epithelium is the first line of defense against infectious mic...

Fructose-1,6-Bisphosphate Prevents Bleomycin-Induced Pulmonary Fibrosis in Mice and Inhibits the Proliferation of Lung Fibroblasts.

Pulmonary fibrosis is a specific form of interstitial pneumonia. In addition to the idiopathic cause, it may be caused by drugs such as bleomycin (BLM)-used in the treatment of tumors. Fructose-1,6-bi...

Deficiency of Sphingosine-1-Phosphate Receptor 2 (S1P) Attenuates Bleomycin-Induced Pulmonary Fibrosis.

Sphingosine 1-phosphate (S1P) levels are often found to be elevated in serum, bronchoalveolar lavage, and lung tissue of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis patients and experimental mouse models. Although ...

Cigarette smoking aggravates bleomycin-induced experimental pulmonary fibrosis.

Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a chronic progressive lung disease that typically leads to respiratory failure and death. The cause of IPF is poorly understood. Although several environmental a...

Synthesis and discovery of a drug candidate for treatment of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis through inhibition of TGF-β1 pathway.

In this study, anti-IPF lead compounds 42 and 44, derived from natural sesquiterpene lactones Isoalantolactone and alantolactone, were discovered by screening from a high-throughput TGF-β1 reporter l...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A complex of related glycopeptide antibiotics from Streptomyces verticillus consisting of bleomycin A2 and B2. It inhibits DNA metabolism and is used as an antineoplastic, especially for solid tumors.

Hypertrophy and dilation of the RIGHT VENTRICLE of the heart that is caused by PULMONARY HYPERTENSION. This condition is often associated with pulmonary parenchymal or vascular diseases, such as CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DISEASE and PULMONARY EMBOLISM.

An antineoplastic agent derived from BLEOMYCIN.

Excessive accumulation of extravascular fluid in the lung, an indication of a serious underlying disease or disorder. Pulmonary edema prevents efficient PULMONARY GAS EXCHANGE in the PULMONARY ALVEOLI, and can be life-threatening.

Narrowing below the PULMONARY VALVE or well below it in the infundibuluar chamber where the pulmonary artery originates, usually caused by a defective VENTRICULAR SEPTUM or presence of fibrous tissues. It is characterized by restricted blood outflow from the RIGHT VENTRICLE into the PULMONARY ARTERY, exertional fatigue, DYSPNEA, and chest discomfort.
