Constrictive bronchiolitis obliterans (CBO), a highly fatal syndrome seen following toxicant exposure and lung transplantation, is in need of mechanistic study. This report creates an animal model of toxicant induced CBO, validates its pathology and suggests a physiologic mechanism for its origin. Papaverine, the alkaloid in Sauropus plants and responsible(More)
Bronchiolitis obliterans (BOS - bronchiolitis obliterans syndrome - clinical diagnosis; CBO-histopathologic diagnosis), is a chronic disease process of fibrosis and cellular deposition in airways, complicating long term survival following lung transplantation.
