Bronchoscopy With Bronchoalveolar Lavage in Identifying Biomarkers of Response to Immune Checkpoint Inhibitors in Patients With Non-small Cell or Small Cell Lung Cancer

This pilot clinical trial studies how well bronchoscopy with bronchoalveolar lavage works in identifying biomarkers of response to immune checkpoint inhibitors in patients with non-small c...

Clinical Efficacy and Safety of Autologous Lung Stem Cell Transplantation in Patients With Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis

Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a chronic and ultimately fatal disease characterized by a progressive damage of lung structure and decline in lung function.This study intends to car...

Bronchoscopy in Determining the Effect of E-Cigarette Smoking on Biomarkers in the Lungs

This trial studies biomarkers obtained by bronchoscopy (bronchoalveolar lavage and lung brushings) to determine the effect of smoking e-cigarettes on the lungs. Studying samples of lung ce...

Procurement and Analysis of Specimens From Individuals With Pulmonary Fibrosis

The etiology of pulmonary fibrosis is unknown. Analysis of blood, genomic DNA, and specimens procured by bronchoscopy, lung biopsy, lung transplantation, or post-mortem examination from i...

A Study on Pneumoconiosis Treated With Whole-lung Lavage Combined With Mesenchymal Stem Cells

Pneumoconiosis is a kind of lung disease due to inhalation of dust such as silica(common named Silicosis), coal and rock dust, characterized by inflammation, coughing, and fibrosis. Curren...

Interleukin-9 Blockade Suppresses Silica-induced Lung Inflammation and Fibrosis in Mice.

Recapitulative animal models of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) and related diseases are lacking, which inhibits our ability to fully clarify the pathogenesis of these diseases. Although lung fibr...

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 ...

Surveillance Bronchoscopy: Is It Still Relevant?

The performance of bronchoscopy with bronchoalveolar lavage and transbronchial biopsy is an essential tool and skill required by any clinician caring for patients postlung transplantation. Making a co...

Bronchoscopy and Bronchoalveolar Lavage in the Diagnosis and Management of Pulmonary Infections in Immunocompromised Children.

Immunocompromised children are at high risk of rapid deterioration and of developing life-threatening pulmonary infections. Etiologies in this setting are diverse, including those that are infectious ...

Safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics, and pharmacodynamics of GLPG1690, a novel autotaxin inhibitor, to treat idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (FLORA): a phase 2a randomised placebo-controlled trial.

Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) causes irreversible loss of lung function. People with IPF have increased concentrations of autotaxin in lung tissue and lysophosphatidic acid (LPA) in bronchoalveo...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Washing liquid obtained from irrigation of the lung, including the BRONCHI and the PULMONARY ALVEOLI. It is generally used to assess biochemical, inflammatory, or infection status of the lung.

A diverse group of lung diseases that affect the lung parenchyma. They are characterized by an initial inflammation of PULMONARY ALVEOLI that extends to the interstitium and beyond leading to diffuse PULMONARY FIBROSIS. Interstitial lung diseases are classified by their etiology (known or unknown causes), and radiological-pathological features.

A diffuse parenchymal lung disease caused by accumulation of inhaled CARBON or coal dust. The disease can progress from asymptomatic anthracosis to massive lung fibrosis. This lung lesion usually occurs in coal miners, but can be seen in urban dwellers and tobacco smokers.

An autosomal recessive genetic disease of the EXOCRINE GLANDS. It is caused by mutations in the gene encoding the CYSTIC FIBROSIS TRANSMEMBRANE CONDUCTANCE REGULATOR expressed in several organs including the LUNG, the PANCREAS, the BILIARY SYSTEM, and the SWEAT GLANDS. Cystic fibrosis is characterized by epithelial secretory dysfunction associated with ductal obstruction resulting in AIRWAY OBSTRUCTION; chronic RESPIRATORY INFECTIONS; PANCREATIC INSUFFICIENCY; maldigestion; salt depletion; and HEAT PROSTRATION.

A group of interstitial lung diseases with no known etiology. There are several entities with varying patterns of inflammation and fibrosis. They are classified by their distinct clinical-radiological-pathological features and prognosis. They include IDIOPATHIC PULMONARY FIBROSIS; CRYPTOGENIC ORGANIZING PNEUMONIA; and others.
