Expression of heme oxygenase-1 in the lungs of rats exposed to crystalline silica.


Oxidative stress is thought to be the pathogenesis of pulmonary fibrosis induced by particles, and heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1) protects lung tissue against oxidative stress. We hypothesized that HO-1 is also associated with oxidative lung injury caused by exposure to particles. The present study was conducted to investigate the time course of HO-1 expression of… (More)
