Pulmonary fibrosis is a common response to various injuries to the lung. The resolution of a fibroproliferative response after lung injury is key to survival. Although there are various initiating factors or causes, the terminal stages are characterized by proliferation and progressive accumulation of connective tissue replacing normal functional parenchyma. Conventional therapy consisting of glucocorticoids or immunosuppressive drugs is usually ineffective in preventing progression of fibrosis… CONTINUE READING
