Bronchial contractions in transplanted lungs. Influence of denervation, acute rejection, and the bronchial epithelium.


The effects of pulmonary denervation and rejection on contractions of bronchial smooth muscle and epithelial modulation of these contractions were studied in dogs after denervation in right lung autotransplantation (n = 6) and acute rejection after right lung allotransplantation (n = 8). Immunosuppression was withdrawn from the latter group after 5 days… (More)
