Background: Inflammation and degeneration are the two edged swords that impale a pulmonary system with the maladies like asthma and idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. To explore critical role players that orchestrate the etiology and pathogenesis of these diseases, we used various lung disease models in mice in specific genetic knockout templates. Materials and methods: Acute and chronic allergic asthma and idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis models in mouse were developed in various genetic knockout… 
Fast Dissolving Tablet of Terbutaline Sulfate: Review
TLDR
Fast dissolving tablets of terbutaline sulfate tablets are ready by the direct compression technique once incorporating with super disintegrants similar to crystalline cellulose and sodium starch glycolate in numerous concentrations.

Defining the molecular role of gp91phox in the immune manifestation of acute allergic asthma using a preclinical murine model
TLDR
Although OVA-specific IgE in plasma were comparable in wildtype and knockout mice, enhanced inflammatory cell recruitment from circulation and cytokine release in lung and BALf, accompanied by higher airway resistance as well as Penh in response to methacholine, indicate a regulatory role for NADPH oxidase in development of allergic asthma.
Alpha4 and beta2 integrins have nonredundant roles for asthma development, but for optimal allergen sensitization only alpha4 is critical.
TLDR
The lack of alpha4 integrin not only impedes the migration of all white cell subsets to lung and airways, but also prevents upregulation of vascular cell adhesion molecule-1 (VCAM-1) in inflamed lung vasculature and, unlike beta2, attenuates optimal sensitization and ovalbumin-specific IgE production in vivo.
Characterization of lung stem cell niches in a mouse model of bleomycin-induced fibrosis
TLDR
Inflammation is a pre-requisite for fibrosis; SP cells, being the putative stem cells in the lungs, were increased (either by self renewal or by recruitment from the exogenous bone marrow pool) post-bleomycin in NOX-/- but not in DKO indicating the necessity of cross-talk between gp91phox and MMP-12 double knockout mice.
Cell adhesion antagonists: therapeutic potential in asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
TLDR
An overview of roles played by selectins and integrins in lung inflammation is provided and recent clinical results (both failures and successes) in developing adhesion molecule antagonists are described, with specific emphasis on those targets that may have potential benefit in asthma and COPD.

TLDR
Comparative studies between ELP-/- and WT mice uncovered functional roles of these three integrins in inflammatory response in allergic asthma, where all three selectins seem to impede inflammatory migration while only L-selectin also possibly regulates activation of specific T cell subsets in lung and airways.
NADPH Oxidase Has a Regulatory Role in Acute Allergic Asthma
TLDR
Enhanced inflammatory cell recruitment from circulation and cytokine release in lung and BALf, accompanied by higher airway resistance as well as Penh in response to methacholine, indicates a regulatory role for NADPH oxidase in development of allergic asthma.
Recent advances in the pathophysiology of asthma.
TLDR
This review examines the newer information on the pathophysiologic characteristics of asthma and focuses on papers published over the past 3 years that have helped to improve current levels of understanding.

TLDR
This study indicates that ES cell-based therapy may be a powerful novel approach to ameliorate lung fibrosis.
