Tissue-resident alveolar macrophages (TR-AM) are depleted from the lung during the early stages of bleomycin-induced lung injury and fibrosis. The recovery of the population of macrophages after bleom...
Bleomycin (BLM) induced cellular damage causes inflammation in the alveolar compartment and impairment of fibrinolytic system leads to alveolar epithelial cell apoptosis. Here, we describe novel infla...
Understanding how the mechanisms of ventilator-induced lung injury (VILI), namely atelectrauma and volutrauma, contribute to the failure of the blood-gas barrier and subsequent intrusion of edematous ...
Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a chronic and progressive lung disease characterized by epithelial cell activation, expansion of the fibroblast population and excessive extracellular matrix acc...
Endotoxin induced acute lung injury (ALI) is a critical complication of some clinical illnesses. Endothelial cell dysfunction and excessive pro-inflammation cytokine release are pivotal to the injury ...
In this study, the investigators aim to observe the change in alveolar macrophage function during acute lung injury.
Dopamine(DA) is a common neurotransmitter that has been known to regulate behavior, movement, cardiovascular，endocrine and gastrointestinal functions, but also functions as an important ...
Lung protective ventilation (LPV) has been proposed to reduce the incidence of postoperative pulmonary complications (PPCs), and protect against ventilator induced lung injury (VILI).
As novel agonists of Wnt/β-catenin signaling pathway, R-spondin proteins constitute a class of ligands, including R-spondin 1/2/3/4, functioning through their receptors leucine-rich repea...
The aim of the study is to investigate by flow cytometry the phenotype of alveolar macrophages (AMs) isolated from patients with non-infectious lung diseases.
Lung damage that is caused by the adverse effects of PULMONARY VENTILATOR usage. The high frequency and tidal volumes produced by a mechanical ventilator can cause alveolar disruption and PULMONARY EDEMA.
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.
The ratio of alveolar ventilation to simultaneous alveolar capillary blood flow in any part of the lung. (Stedman, 25th ed)
Injury following pressure changes; includes injury to the eustachian tube, ear drum, lung and stomach.
Water content outside of the lung vasculature. About 80% of a normal lung is made up of water, including intracellular, interstitial, and blood water. Failure to maintain the normal homeostatic fluid exchange between the vascular space and the interstitium of the lungs can result in PULMONARY EDEMA and flooding of the alveolar space.

Stress is caused by your perception of situations around you and then the reaction of your body to them. The automatic stress response to unexpected events is known as 'fight or flight'. Discovered by Walter Cannon in 1932, it is the release of h...
