    2,3,7,8-Tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD) is a persistent environmental contaminant that elicits a wide range of toxic effects on the developing organism. In this study, we demonstrate that the fetal and neonatal rat lung contains a responsive Ahr-signaling pathway which upon activation by a...

    The death rate from human diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) ranges from 50 to 80%, mainly due to the associated lung hypoplasia. To prevent these irreversible pathological and physical defects, the question of intrauterine surgical intervention arises. The histological changes of the lung tissue after...

    In this article, the authors discuss the risks or side effects of fetal endoscopic tracheal occlusion (FETO) on trachea of neonates with congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH). They argue that tracheal occlusion (TO) prevent lung liquid from coming out and causes tissue stretch acting as sign of...

Stokes; Egana, Loreto; Norris, Karen A.; Oury, Tim D.; Kolls, Jay K. // PLoS ONE;Jul2012, Vol. 7 Issue 7, p1 

    Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is the leading cause of bronchiolitis and viral death in infants. Reduced CD8 T-cells and negligible interferon gamma (IFNγ) in the airway are associated with severe infant RSV disease, yet there is an abundance of alveolar macrophages (AM) and neutrophils....
