Combined pulmonary fibrosis and emphysema (CPFE) is a syndrome that results from tobacco smoking. Emphysema and fibrosis in CPFE patients have been considered to exist separately, with emphysema in th...
Combined pulmonary fibrosis and emphysema (CPFE) has emerged as a new syndrome with characteristics of both fibrosis and emphysema. We determined the impacts of radiologic emphysema severity on pulmon...
A rat model of emphysema was established that mimics the features of the human emphysema subtype and explores the effects of demethylation on lung function and blood tests.
While the elastin-specific crosslinks, desmosine and isodesmosine (DID), are increased in blood, urine, and sputum of patients with clinically documented pulmonary emphysema, the usefulness of DID in ...
Mediastinal and subcutaneous emphysema usually result from spontaneous rupture of the alveolar wall. We present an extremely rare case of massive mediastinal, retroperitoneal, and subcutaneous emphyse...
Emphysema, a common type of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), is a long-term lung disease that is usually caused by cigarette smoking. This study will examine both current smok...
Emphysema is a major pathological feature of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). Non-invasive assessment of emphysema is a crucial issue for the phenotype and follow-up of COPD p...
The study hypothesis is that patients with homogeneous emphysema behave differently compared to heterogeneous emphysema with respect to exercise capacity. A better understanding of this di...
This 2 arm study will investigate the efficacy, safety and tolerability of RAR Gamma versus placebo in ex-smokers with moderate or severe emphysema treated with optimal COPD therapy. Follo...
Current treatment for emphysema is limited to measures that include inhaled oxygen, bronchodilators, anti-inflammatory drugs and pulmonary rehabilitation. Highly invasive procedures such ...
Enlargement of air spaces distal to the TERMINAL BRONCHIOLES where gas-exchange normally takes place. This is usually due to destruction of the alveolar wall. Pulmonary emphysema can be classified by the location and distribution of the lesions.
The magnetic stimulation of specific target tissues or areas of the body for therapeutic purposes via the application of magnetic fields generated by magnets or electromagnets.
A class of drugs producing both physiological and psychological effects through a variety of mechanisms. They can be divided into "specific" agents, e.g., affecting an identifiable molecular mechanism unique to target cells bearing receptors for that agent, and "nonspecific" agents, those producing effects on different target cells and acting by diverse molecular mechanisms. Those with nonspecific mechanisms are generally further classed according to whether they produce behavioral depression or stimulation. Those with specific mechanisms are classed by locus of action or specific therapeutic use. (From Gilman AG, et al., Goodman and Gilman's The Pharmacological Basis of Therapeutics, 8th ed, p252)
A ubiquitously-expressed claudin subtype that acts as a general barrier-forming protein in TIGHT JUNCTIONS. Elevated expression of claudin-3 is found in a variety of tumor cell types, suggesting its role as a therapeutic target for specific ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENTS.
A pathological accumulation of air in tissues or organs.
COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease)
COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) is used for a number of conditions including chronic bronchitis and emphysema, which all lead to the airways in the lungs becoming damaged and thus narrower, making inhalation and exhalation harder...
