Messages and handshakes: cellular interactions in pulmonary fibrosis.

Abstract

A better understanding of early cellular events following pulmonary injury may permit the identification of those patterns of response which are destined to progress to fibrosis. Interactions between inflammatory, fibroblastic and epithelial cells appear to play crucial roles in fibrogenesis. Intercellular communication may be via "messages" delivered by… (More)
