Senescence of alveolar type II (ATII) cells, progenitors of the alveolar epithelium, is a pathological feature and contributes importantly to the pathogenesis of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF). D...
Nanoparticles in polluted air or aerosolized drug nanoparticles predominantly settle in the alveolar lung. Here, we describe a novel, highly effective pathway for the particles to cross the alveolar e...
The GALA peptide (WEAALAEALAEALAEHLAEALAEALEALAA) was originally designed to induce the destabilization of endosomal membranes based on its ability to undergo a pH-dependent conformational change from...
Cellular senescence is a response characterized by a stable cell proliferation arrest and a senescence-associated secretory phenotype (SASP) which can be induced by many stresses, including telomere s...
Human fibroblasts become senescent after a limited number of replications or by diverse stresses, such as DNA damage. However, replicative and damage induced senescence are indistinguishable in respec...
The purpose of this study is to assess the effect of inhaled fluticasone (an inhaled corticosteroid) on the pattern of the lung airway epithelium and alveolar macrophages gene expression o...
The aim of the study is to investigate the impact of Anti-Thymocyte Globulin (ATG) on immune senescence. Markers of immune senescence expression is assessed in a prospective cohort of rena...
Circulatory shocks (CS) are life-threatening, acute organ dysfunction. Advances in critical care medicine have decreased early hospital mortality, increasing the number of surviving patien...
Patients with cancer often complain that their "mind does not seem to be clear." This can be due to stress, depression, anxiety, or physical problems caused by cancer or the treatments use...
Alveolar bone graft is one of the main step of the surgical care of the patients who are suffering from cleft lip and palate. They are usually performed before the lateral incisor eruption...
The barrier between capillary blood and alveolar air comprising the alveolar EPITHELIUM and capillary ENDOTHELIUM with their adherent BASEMENT MEMBRANE and EPITHELIAL CELL cytoplasm. PULMONARY GAS EXCHANGE occurs across this membrane.
Process by which cells irreversibly stop dividing and enter a state of permanent growth arrest without undergoing CELL DEATH. Senescence can be induced by DNA DAMAGE or other cellular stresses, such as OXIDATIVE STRESS.
A carcinoma thought to be derived from epithelium of terminal bronchioles, in which the neoplastic tissue extends along the alveolar walls and grows in small masses within the alveoli. Involvement may be uniformly diffuse and massive, or nodular, or lobular. The neoplastic cells are cuboidal or columnar and form papillary structures. Mucin may be demonstrated in some of the cells and in the material in the alveoli, which also includes denuded cells. Metastases in regional lymph nodes, and in even more distant sites, are known to occur, but are infrequent. (From Stedman, 25th ed)
Small polyhedral outpouchings along the walls of the alveolar sacs, alveolar ducts and terminal bronchioles through the walls of which gas exchange between alveolar air and pulmonary capillary blood takes place.
The fibrous CONNECTIVE TISSUE surrounding the TOOTH ROOT, separating it from and attaching it to the alveolar bone (ALVEOLAR PROCESS).
