BACKGROUND There is microscopic spatial and temporal heterogeneity of pathological changes in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) lung tissue, which may relate to heterogeneity in pathophysiological mediators of disease and clinical progression. We assessed relationships between gene expression patterns, pathological features, and systemic biomarkers to(More)
IL-13 can bind to two distinct receptors: a heterodimer of IL-13Rα1/IL-4Rα and IL-13Rα2. Whereas IL-13Rα1/IL-4Rα engagement by IL-13 leads to the activation of STAT6, the molecular events triggered by IL-13 binding to IL-13Rα2 remain incompletely understood. IL-4 can bind to and signal through the IL-13Rα1/IL-4Rα complex but does not interact with IL-13Rα2.(More)
BACKGROUND Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is associated with aberrant expression of developmental pathways, including Hedgehog (Hh). As Hh signalling contributes to multiple pro-fibrotic processes, Hh inhibition may represent a therapeutic option for IPF. However, no non-invasive biomarkers are available to monitor lung Hh activity. METHODS We(More)
Hemophilia A is a clotting disorder that is due to reduced or absent coagulation factor VIII (FVIII) activity. In approximately 25% of people with severe hemophilia A, standard treatment with intravenous plasma-derived or recombinant FVIII (rFVIII) induces anti-FVIII antibodies that inhibit FVIII activity (inhibitors). We describe the development of a rat(More)
