    Neutrophils may participate in the development of lung fibrosis. Hepatocyte growth factor (HGF), a growth factor for type II pneumocytes, is produced by neutrophils. We measured the production of HGF by blood and alveolar neutrophils from patients with either idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (n =...

    Aberrant wound-healing responses to injury have been implicated in the development of pulmonary fibrosis, but the mediators directing these pathologic responses have yet to be fully identified. We show that lysophosphatidic acid levels increase in bronchoalveolar lavage fluid following lung...
