    With the rapid evolution of the multidetector row CT technique, quantitative CT has started to be used in clinical studies for revealing a heterogeneous entity of airflow limitation in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease that is caused by a combination of lung parenchymal destruction and...

    Airway inflammation is central to the pathogenesis of both airway remodelling and parenchymal destruction in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Neutrophils, macrophages, and CD8+ T lymphocytes have been implicated in a number of studies, but a detailed profile of disease-phenotype...

    A major contributory factor to the development of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is the inflammatory response to cigarette smoke. However, when those with COPD stop smoking, a continuous cycle of inflammation can lead to continued decline in lung function. Understanding the role of...

    Small human lung specimens are frequently used for cell biological studies of the pathogenesis of emphysema. In general, lung function and other clinical parameters are used to establish the presence and severity of emphysema/chronic obstructive pulmonary disease without morphological analysis...

    The relative contributions of large and small airways to hyperresponsiveness in asthma have yet to be fully assessed. This study used a mouse model of chronic allergic airways disease to induce inflammation and remodelling and determine whether in vivo hyperresponsiveness to methacholine is...

    High-resolution computed tomography (CT) of the lung is a powerful diagnostic tool in revealing morphological abnormalities that closely correspond to those of the pathological tissue specimen. High-resolution CT is usually obtained at the end of deep inspiration; however, additional CT obtained...

    Deep inhalation (DI) induces changes in airway calibre that may last beyond the manoeuvre itself. The mechanisms involve mechanical interaction between conducting airways subjected to parenchymal tethering and lung parenchyma itself. Healthy children usually show small bronchodilation after DI....
