Human monocyte modulation of endothelial cells and fibroblast growth: possible mechanism for fibrosis.


Several human diseases are characterized by vascular pathology, fibroblast activation, and excessive fibrosis (e.g., scleroderma, chronic graft versus host disease, pulmonary fibrosis). An intense inflammatory exudate of mononuclear cells which are derived from the peripheral blood precedes the vascular and fibrotic changes. We examined, in vitro, the… (More)
