Clinical outcomes stratified by baseline functional class after initial combination therapy for pulmonary arterial hypertension

jeu, 12/09/2019 - 02:00
Initial combination therapy with ambrisentan and tadalafil reduced the risk of clinical failure events for treatment-naïve participants with pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) as compared to monotherapy. Pr...

Factors leading to failure to diagnose pulmonary malignant tumors using endobronchial ultrasound with guide sheath within the target lesion

jeu, 12/09/2019 - 02:00
The diagnostic yield of peripheral pulmonary lesions has significantly increased with the use of radial endobronchial ultrasound with guide sheath within the lesion. Here, we retrospectively evaluated factors ...

Interferon-γ enhances the antifibrotic effects of pirfenidone by attenuating IPF lung fibroblast activation and differentiation

mer, 11/09/2019 - 02:00
Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) pathogenesis involves multiple pathways, and combined antifibrotic therapy is needed for future IPF therapy. Inhaled interferon-γ (IFN-γ) was recently shown to be safe and w...

Antifibrotic therapy for idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis: time to treat

ven, 06/09/2019 - 02:00
Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a progressive disease with a dismal prognosis. The average life expectancy of untreated patients with IPF is only 3 to 4 years. Decline in forced vital capacity (FVC) in ...

Wnt signaling regulates trans-differentiation of stem cell like type 2 alveolar epithelial cells to type 1 epithelial cells

ven, 06/09/2019 - 02:00
Type 2 alveolar epithelial cells (AT2s) behave as stem cells and show clonal proliferation upon alveolar injury followed by trans-differentiation (TD) into Type 1 alveolar epithelial cells (AT1s). In the prese...

High level of fluorescent oxidation products and worsening of asthma control over time

ven, 06/09/2019 - 02:00
High Fluorescent oxidation products level (FlOPs), a global oxidative stress biomarker, was associated cross-sectionally with poor asthma outcomes but its longitudinal association with asthma evolution has nev...

Roles of MYC-targeting long non-coding RNA MINCR in cell cycle regulation and apoptosis in non-small cell lung Cancer

mar, 03/09/2019 - 02:00
Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is one of the leading causes of cancer death in the world, and has a relatively low survival rate. Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) have been demonstrated to modulate cancer pr...

Lyn regulates epithelial–mesenchymal transition in CS-exposed model through Smad2/3 signaling

lun, 02/09/2019 - 02:00
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is characterized by airflow limitation that is progressive and not fully reversible. Cigarette smoking is one of the most commonly and important risk factors for CO...

Reduced expression of the Ion channel CFTR contributes to airspace enlargement as a consequence of aging and in response to cigarette smoke in mice

lun, 02/09/2019 - 02:00
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a complex disease resulting in respiratory failure and represents the third leading cause of global death. The two classical phenotypes of COPD are chronic bronc...

Validation of the IPF-specific version of St. George’s Respiratory Questionnaire

mer, 28/08/2019 - 02:00
Patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) have impaired health-related quality of life (HRQL). To measure HRQL, an IPF-specific version of the St. George’s Respiratory Questionnaire (SGRQ-I) was develo...

mer, 28/08/2019 - 02:00
There is a relationship between Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and the development of lung cancer (LC). The aim of this study is to analyse several blood markers and compare their concentrations ...

The interleukin-33 receptor contributes to pulmonary responses to ozone in male mice: role of the microbiome

mar, 27/08/2019 - 02:00
Interleukin-33 is released in the airways following acute ozone exposure and has the ability to cause airway hyperresponsiveness, a defining feature of asthma. Ozone causes greater airway hyperresponsiveness i...
