Cyclosporine A mediates fibroproliferation through epithelial cells.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Obliterative bronchiolitis (OB) is the major cause of morbidity and mortality after lung transplantation. The potential role of immunosuppressive drugs in the development of OB is uncertain, but there are limited data indicating that cyclosporine A (CsA) may have a direct fibrogenic effect on various human cell types. Epithelium-fibroblast… (More)
