Upregulation of T-helper 1 cytokines and chemokine expression in post-transplant airway obliteration.

Abstract

The major obstacle to long-term survival after lung transplantation is chronic graft dysfunction manifest as bronchiolitis obliterans. Since the early stages are characterized by proliferation of itinerant cells (lymphocytes and macrophages), we hypothesized that cytokines and chemokines may play a role in the development of the fibroproliferative process… (More)
