Extracellular matrix metalloproteinase inducer (EMMPRIN) was examined on bronchoalveolar lavage fluids (BALFs) and lung tissue from patients with fibrosis (usual interstitial pneumonia-idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis [UIP-IPF], n = 15; diffuse parenchymal lung diseases without IPF characteristics on computerized tomography scan, n = 8) and without fibrosis (n = 6). In UIP-IPF, EMMPRIN staining was increased in areas of fibrosis, mainly in macrophages and in epithelial cells. EMMPRIN was also… CONTINUE READING
