Therapeutic applications of carbon monoxide in lung disease.

Abstract

Carbon monoxide (CO) offers potential therapeutic avenues in the treatment of lung disorders. CO arises endogenously from heme degradation, catalyzed by the heme oxygenase enzymes. In cell culture, CO exerts potent anti-inflammatory, anti-apoptotic and anti-proliferative effects by modulating intracellular signaling pathways. In vivo, CO confers tissue… (More)
