Epithelial-mesenchymal interaction and insulin-like growth factors in hyperoxic lung injury.


To investigate the role of epithelial-mesenchymal interaction on oxygen-induced lung injury, we used a coculture model with lung fibroblasts (FB) embedded between 2 layers of collagen gel with and without human tracheobronchial epithelial cells (HTBE), and studied the effect of hyperoxia on the directed migration of FB towards epithelial cells and… (More)
