The purpose of this study was to analyze the cellular components of bronchoalveolar lavage fluid throughout the development of bleomycin-induced pulmonary fibrosis in the rat. Animals were killed and lavaged at various times after the administration of a single intratracheal injection of bleomycin. The results demonstrate that a significant influx of(More)
Qualitative and quantitative analysis was performed on phospholipids isolated from bronchoalveolar lavage fluid during the development of pulmonary fibrosis in the rat. A single transtracheal injection of 2.0 units of bleomycin was administered to rats to induce lung injury. Animals were killed at 0, 3, 7, 14, 30, and 120 days after bleomycin treatment.(More)
In this study we investigated changes in volume-pressure curves at various stages after bleomycin induced lung injury (6 h, and 3, 7, and 28 days) and tested the ability of steroids to influence these changes. The most significant decreases in volume-pressure curves were observed at 3 days post bleomycin, a time point that correlates to the peak period of(More)
Assessment of gallium-67 (67Ga) uptake in the salivary and lacrimal glands and intrathoracic lymph nodes was made in 605 consecutive patients including 65 with sarcoidosis. A distinctive intrathoracic lymph node 67Ga uptake pattern, resembling the Greek letter lambda, was observed only in sarcoidosis (72%). Symmetrical lacrimal gland and parotid gland 67Ga(More)
Considerable clinical and radiologic similarity exists among FB, ABP, MIB, ABPA, and, to a lesser extent, BCG. In the absence of focal obstructive lesions such as tuberculosis or neoplasm, one of the diffuse bronchial hypersecretory diseases, that is, bronchial asthma, acute or chronic bronchitis, asthmatic bronchitis, or cystic fibrosis, is prerequisite to(More)
