Progressive pulmonary inflammation and emphysema have been implicated in the progression of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), while current pharmacological treatments are not effective. Transplantation of bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) has been identified as one such possible strategy for treatment of lung diseases including acute(More)
Ubiquitin-specific proteases (USPs) deubiquitinate ubiquitin-protein conjugates in the ubiquitin-proteasome system. Previous research shows that ubiquitin-specific protease-19 (USP-19) is up-regulated in mammalian skeletal muscle in some degradative conditions, such as including fasting, diabetes, dexamethasone treatment, and cancer, and its function is(More)
Cigarette smoke has been shown to cause chronic inflammation of the lungs, eventually leading to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Additionally, recent studies have suggested that mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) can mediate local inflammatory responses in the lungs. Thus, the aim of the present study was to test the effects of rat MSCs (rMSCs) on(More)
BACKGROUND Bronchial anthracofibrosis (BAF) has been defined as a luminal narrowing associated with anthracotic pigmentation on bronchoscopy without a relevant history of pneumoconiosis or smoking. The aim of the study is to study the clinical features and imaging manifestations of BAF, and to promote the awareness of this disease. METHOD Between October(More)
