    The article presents a study that monitored the impact of Annexin-A1 (AnxA1) mediator on the control of the inflammatory and bleomycin-induced lung fibrosis in Mice. For this bleomycin lung fibrosis model was applied to Annexin-A1 (AnxA1) null mice for a course of 21 days. Results showed that...

    Background: Resistin-like molecule alpha or found in inflammatory zone protein (Fizz1) is increased in pulmonary epithelial cells and also in limited amounts by other lung cells during various lung injuries and fibrosis. However, the direct role of Fizz1 produced in the pulmonary epithelium has...

    The article reports on the study by researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine that may prevent progression or induce regression of lung fibrosis blocked in mouse model with the use of Bleomycin. The study shows that the RSK-C or EBP-Beta phosphorylation pathway...

  • Administration of Bleomycin via the Oropharyngeal Aspiration Route Leads to Sustained Lung Fibrosis in Mice and Rats as Quantified by UTE-MRI and Histology Egger, Christine; Cannet, Catherine; Gérard, Christelle; Jarman, Elizabeth; Jarai, Gabor; Feige, Agnès; Suply, Thomas; Micard, Arthur; Dunbar, Andrew; Tigani, Bruno; Beckmann, Nicolau // PLoS ONE;May2013, Vol. 8 Issue 5, p1 

    Pulmonary fibrosis can be experimentally induced in small rodents by bleomycin. The antibiotic is usually administered via the intratracheal or intranasal routes. In the present study, we investigated the oropharyngeal aspiration of bleomycin as an alternative route for the induction of lung...

  • Telomerase activity is required for bleomycininduced pulmonary fibrosis in mice. Tianju Liu; Myoung Ja Chung; Ullenbruch, Matthew; Hongfeng Yu; Hong Jin; Biao Hu; Yoon Young Choi; Fuyuki Ishikawa; Sem H. Phan // Journal of Clinical Investigation;Dec2007, Vol. 117 Issue 12, p3800 

    In addition to its well-known expression in the germline and in cells of certain cancers, telomerase activity is induced in lung fibrosis, although its role in this process is unknown. To identify the pathogenetic importance of telomerase in lung fibrosis, we examined the effects of telomerase...

    Background Pulmonary fibrosis is an untreatable, fatal disease characterized by excess deposition of extracellular matrix and inflammation. Although the etiology of pulmonary fibrosis is unknown, recent studies have implicated dysregulated immune responses and wound healing. Since n-3...

    Heat shock protein 47 (HSP47) is a collagen-specific molecular chaperone that has been shown to play a major role in the processing and/or secretion of procollagen. However, the knowledge on which cells are actually synthesizing HSP47 in the lung parenchyma in pulmonary fibrosis was only...

    FIZZ (found in inflammatory zone) 1, a member of a cysteine-rich secreted protein family, is highly induced in lung allergic inflammation and bleomycin induced lung fibrosis, and primarily expressed by airway and type II alveolar epithelial cells. This novel mediator is known to stimulate...
