    Background: The bronchial asthma, a clinical complication of persistent inflammation of the airway and subsequent airway hyper-responsiveness, is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality in critically ill patients. Several studies have shown that oxidative stress plays a key role in initiation...

    Background: The human airway epithelium consists of 4 major cell types: ciliated, secretory, columnar and basal cells. During natural turnover and in response to injury, the airway basal cells function as stem/progenitor cells for the other airway cell types. The objective of this study is to...

    Background: Allergen-containing subpollen particles (SPP) are released from whole plant pollen upon contact with water or even high humidity. Because of their size SPP can preferentially reach the lower airways where they come into contact with surfactant protein (SP)-D. The aim of the present...

    Pollen exposure induces allergic airway inflammation in sensitized subjects. The role of antigenic pollen proteins in the induction of allergic airway inflammation is well characterized, but the contribution of other constituents in pollen grains to this process is unknown. Here we show that...

    We used a replication defective human lentiviral (HIV) vector encoding the lacZ cDNA and pseudotyped with the vesicular stomatitis virus (VSV) glycoprotein (G) to evaluate the utility of this vector system in airway epithelia. In initial studies, apical application of vector to polarized well...

    Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a highly prevalent airway disease that causes serious morbidity and mortality. Despite its importance, the cellular and molecular mechanisms that contribute to COPD pathogenesis have only recently been investigated. COPD is characterised by chronic...

  • Airway injury during high-level exercise. Kippelen, Pascale; Anderson, Sandra D. // British Journal of Sports Medicine;May2012, Vol. 46 Issue 6, p385 

    Airway epithelial cells act as a physical barrier against environmental toxins and injury, and modulate inflammation and the immune response. As such, maintenance of their integrity is critical. Evidence is accumulating to suggest that exercise can cause injury to the airway epithelium. This...
