The pathophysiology of asthma involves an intricate network of molecular and cellular interactions. Elevated Th2 cytokines (interleukin [IL]-5 and IL-4) associated with eosinophilic inflammation characterize allergic diseases and provide potential targets for immunomodulation. Recent evidence has demonstrated that galectin-3 induces selective downregulation(More)
BACKGROUND To study the relationship between collagen amount and degree of emphysema as assessed by mean linear intercept (Lm) and correlating these with lung function test workup in patients with and without COPD. METHODS Lung function tests were assessed in 16 smokers or ex-smokers and 1 non-smoker in order to separate them into two groups: COPD(More)
1. The aim of the present study was to perform an evolutionary analysis of the morphometrical, biochemical and functional parameters of centriacinar emphysema induced by cadmium chloride (CdCl2) in rats and to determine the effects of concomitant N-acetylcysteine (NAC) administration. 2. Male Wistar rats were instilled orotracheally with either CdCl2 (n =(More)
