BACKGROUND Several studies have implicated the role of inflammation in the pathogenesis of lung damage in idiopathic interstitial pneumonias (IIPs). Investigations of inflammatory cells in IIP have show that eosinophils, neutrophils and T cells may be associated with a poorer prognosis. OBJECTIVES The aim of our study was to map, by quantitative analysis, the number of inflammatory cells in the lung tissue of patients with non-specific interstitial pneumonia/non-specific interstitial… CONTINUE READING
