    Purpose: Chronic lung inflammation commonly induces a multitude of structural and functional adaptations within the lung tissue and airspaces. Yet the impact of a persistent inflammatory environment on alveolar macrophages is still incompletely understood. Here, we examined morphology and...

    Obesity is associated with chronic low-grade systemic inflammation and high levels of the adipokine leptin. Predominantly produced by adipose tissue, circulating leptin induces satiety by acting on the hypothalamus. Emerging data are establishing new roles for leptin in the cardiovascular and...

    INTRACELLULAR adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1)-mediated cell-cell adhesion is thought to play an important role at sites of inflammation. Recent evidence suggests that ICAM-1 surface expression on alveolar macrophages is increased in pulmonary sarcoidosis and that inflammatory granuloma formation is...

    Oxidants such as superoxide anion, hydrogen peroxide, and myeloperoxidase from activated inflammatory cells in the lower respiratory tract contribute to inflammation and injury. Etiologic agents include inorganic particulates such as asbestos, silica, or coal mine dust or mixtures of inorganic...

    Cigarette smoke (CS) causes pulmonary emphysema in humans and elastin degradation plays a key role in its pathogenesis. Previous studies on CS-exposed animals have been equivocal and have not clearly demonstrated the progression of the disease. In this study, morphometry was used to assess lung...

    Chronic lung disease (CLD) of preterm infants has a multifactorial aetiology. Oxygen toxicity, mechanical injury (barotrauma), volutrauma as well as prenatal and postnatal infections most likely contribute to pulmonary injury in the immature lung of preterm infants. There is sufficient evidence...

    Pulmonary fibrosis is an untreatable, uniformly fatal disease of unclear etiology that is the result of unremitting chronic inflammation. Recent studies have implicated bone marrow derived fibrocytes and M2 macrophages as playing key roles in propagating fibrosis. While the disease process is...
