Lung irradiation induces pulmonary vascular remodelling resembling pulmonary arterial hypertension.


BACKGROUND Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is a commonly fatal pulmonary vascular disease that is often diagnosed late and is characterised by a progressive rise in pulmonary vascular resistance resulting from typical vascular remodelling. Recent data suggest that vascular damage plays an important role in the development of radiation-induced… (More)
