In this investigation, tenascin (Tn) expression was studied in 51 cases of different types of fibrotic lung disorders originating for years 1981 to 1995. Our aim was to test if accumulation of Tn at the site of lung injury in usual interstitial pneumonia (UIP) could correlate with the prognosis. Lung biopsies taken from 28 patients with UIP, six with desquamative interstitial pneumonia (DIP), six with sarcoidosis, five with extrinsic allergic bronchioloalveolitis, five with bronchiolitis… CONTINUE READING
