Chronic liver diseases with different etiologies represent a major public health issue worldwide. Liver fibrosis is the common feature of almost all chronic liver diseases and remains a key determinant of clinical prognosis. Over the last two decades, basic science studies have uncovered molecular mechanisms underlying the pathophysiology of chronic liver diseases, leading to the recent development of new anti-fibrotic drugs. These new drugs target different steps in the pathophysiology of chronic liver inj...
This study assessed baseline cardiovascular (CV) risk factors, concomitant CV medication use, risk of major adverse cardiac events-plus (MACE-plus), and bleeding adverse events (AEs) in patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) in three randomized, placebo-controlled phase III trials of pirfenidone.
M2-like/repair macrophages are thought to contribute to fibrotic process of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF). We analyzed the association between pulmonary accumulation of M2-like macrophages and survival in IPF patients.
As an evolutionarily conserved intracellular degradation pathway, autophagy is essential to cellular homeostasis. Several studies have demonstrated that autophagy showed an important effect on some pulmonary fibrosis diseases, including idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), cystic fibrosis lung disease, silicosis and smoking-induced pulmonary fibrosis. For example, autophagy mitigates the pathological progression of IPF by regulating the apoptosis of fibroblasts and the senescence of alveolar epithelial cell...
: Red cell distribution width to platelet ratio (RPR) may be a useful marker for the evaluation of liver fibrosis in chronic liver disease (CLD). We sought to investigate its value in fibrosis-related outcomes in a meta-analysis of diagnostic accuracy. : We searched MEDLINE (1966-2019), Clinicaltrials.gov (2008-2019), Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL) (1999-2019), Google Scholar (2004-2019) and WHO (International Clinical Trials Register Platform) databases using a structured algorith...
Diseases where fibrosis plays a major role accounts for enormous morbidity and mortality and yet we have very little in our therapeutic arsenal despite decades of research and clinical trials. Our understanding of fibrosis biology is primarily built on data generated in conventional mono-culture or co-culture systems and in vivo model systems. While these approaches have undoubtedly enhanced our understanding of basic mechanisms, they have repeatedly failed to translate to clinical benefit. Recently, there ...
Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a rare and chronic fibrosing interstitial lung disease. However, the clinical features and outcomes of IPF in Taiwan have not been well studied. In addition, the survival difference between patients with IPF alone and combined pulmonary fibrosis and emphysema (CPFE) remains controversial.
The recent outbreak of respiratory illness in Wuhan, China is caused by a novel coronavirus, named 2019-nCoV, which is genetically close to a bat-derived coronavirus. 2019-nCoV is categorized as beta genus coronavirus, same as the two other strains - severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus (SARS-CoV) and Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV). Antiviral drugs commonly used in clinical practice, including neuraminidase inhibitors (oseltamivir, paramivir, zanamivir, etc.), ganciclovir, ...
Interstitial lung disease represents a group of diffuse parenchymal lung diseases with overwhelming morbidity and mortality when complicated by acute respiratory failure. Recently, trials investigating outcomes and their determinants have provided insight into these high mortality rates. Pulmonary hypertension is a known complication of interstitial lung disease and there is high prevalence in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, connective tissue disease, and sarcoidosis subtypes. Interstitial lung disease assoc...
Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is the most common and severe form of idiopathic interstitial pneumonias, accounted for 20% of cases of interstitial lung disease (ILD). In this study, we sought to compare the lung changes of IPF using a lung ultrasound (LUS) protocol of 12 zones with "current standard" high resolution computed tomography (HRCT) diagnostic method and overlap it with the functional pulmonary test as a complete clinical and imaging evaluation.
Epithelial-mesenchymal transformation (EMT) is a central mechanism for the occurrence and development of pulmonary fibrosis. Therefore, to identify the key target molecules regulating the EMT process is considered as an important direction for the prevention and treatment of pulmonary fibrosis. Transglutaminase 2 (TG2) has been recently found to play an important role in the regulation of inflammation and the generation of extracellular matrix. Here, our study focuses on the roles of TG2 in pulmonary fibros...
Data regarding the radiological and clinical features of pulmonary tuberculosis (PTB) in patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) are limited. Accordingly, the aim of this study was to investigate the clinico-radiological features of PTB in patients with IPF.
In recent months two major fields of interest in pulmonary imaging have stood out: pulmonary fibrosis and pulmonary nodules. New guidelines have been released to define pulmonary fibrosis and subsequent studies have proved the value of these changes. In addition, new recommendations for classification of pulmonary nodules have been released. Radiological images are of major interest for automated and standardized analysis and so in both cases software tools using artificial intelligence were developed for v...
Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a devastating disease characterized as progressive and irreversible fibrosis in the interstitium of lung tissues. There is still an unmet need to develop a novel therapeutic drug for IPF. We have previously demonstrated that periostin, a matricellular protein, plays an important role in the pathogenesis of pulmonary fibrosis. However, the underlying mechanism of how periostin causes pulmonary fibrosis remains unclear. In this study, we sought to learn whether the cross...
Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a serious lung problem with advancing and diffusive pulmonary fibrosis as the pathologic basis, and with oxidative stress and inflammation as the key pathogenesis. Glycyl-L-histidyl-l-lysine (GHK) is a tripeptide participating into wound healing and regeneration. GHK-Cu complexes improve GHK bioavailability. Thus, the current study aimed to explore the therapeutic role of GHK-Cu on bleomycin (BLM)-induced pulmonary fibrosis in a mouse model.
Cellular senescence has been linked to the pathogenesis of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF). CCN1 is a matricellular protein that has been shown to induce cellular senescence and contribute to lung fibrosis in pre-clinical models. In this report, we determined plasma CCN1 levels in patients with IPF and its potential role in clinical outcomes.
The safety of pirfenidone on pulmonary fibrosis patients with other kinds of interstitial lung diseases (ILDs) in addition to idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is unknown. Furthermore, its effectiveness-related factors on IPF patients are not quite explored.
We read with interest the study by Li et al in which the authors have demonstrated the prognostic value of serum prealbumin in determining the survival in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) patients. However, the results need to be analyzed in view of the existing literature for accurate clinical interpretation. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.
Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a progressive interstitial lung disease with a poor prognosis. There are no established serum biomarkers for predicting the outcomes of IPF. S100 calcium-binding protein A4 (S100A4) is considered as a marker of fibroblasts; however, its clinical application remains to be investigated. We evaluated the clinical relevance of S100A4 in IPF patients.
Pulmonary hypertension has been reported to complicate the course of a number of fibrotic lung diseases, including idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, chronic hypersensitivity pneumonitis and nonspecific interstitial pneumonitis. Most commonly, mild elevations in the mean pulmonary artery pressure are seen in patients with advanced pulmonary fibrosis. However, some patients may develop severe pulmonary hypertension, which appears out of proportion to the degree of their restrictive lung disease.
Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a disease with a male predominance. Prior data suggest that male sex is associated with disease progression and survival. The basis for this sex difference is unknown.
: Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic, refractory disorder caused by autoimmunity in the synovial joints. Disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (DMARDs) and biologicals offer remission in only two-thirds of RA patients within 3 months, hence new therapeutic approaches are necessary. Tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) are newly developed small molecule drugs which have demonstrated encouraging results in this disease.: The key findings from phase I and II clinical trials that have investigated the use of ...
Pulmonary fibrosis is an irreversible lung disorder with predictable decline in lung function leading to respiratory insufficiency. Incidence of pulmonary fibrosis has been apparently increasing worldwide. Though aetiology of this disease remains unclear, potential roles of infection, disordered cell biology, genetic influence etc. have been proposed. Pirfenidone and nintedanib are the only two US FDA approved drugs to treat pulmonary fibrosis. Autophagy is a catabolic intracellular pathway that plays a cru...
