B lymphocytes are critical for lung fibrosis control and prostaglandin E2 regulation in IL-9 transgenic mice.

Abstract

We previously showed that overexpression of IL-9 controls lung fibrosis induced by silica particles in mice (Arras and colleagues; Am J Respir Cell Mol Biol 2001;24:368-375). This protection was associated with an expansion of lung B lymphocytes. To explore the contribution of these cells in the protective effect of IL-9, we crossed IL-9 transgenic (IL-9… (More)
