Prematurely born infants who required assisted ventilation may develop chronic lung disease or bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD). The cells involved in the reparative process of the premature lung are not well defined. The repair of injured tissues is a highly standardized process and the most important cells are activated (modulated) fibroblasts (myofibroblasts). A key cytokine in controlling repair is transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-beta). To characterize the cells involved in the repair… CONTINUE READING
