Unicentric study of cell therapy in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease/pulmonary emphysema
(Dove Medical Press Ltd, 2011-01-01)
Within the chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) spectrum, lung emphysema presents, as a primarily histopathologic feature, the destruction of pulmonary parenchyma and, accordingly, an increase in the airflow ...
Pulmonary interstitial emphysema in fatal asthma: case report and histopathological review
(BioMed Central, 2018)
Abstract Background Mortality related to asthma has decreased worldwide since the introduction of inhaled corticosteroid therapy in the past decades. However, there are ...
Persistence of ventilatory defect after resolution of pulmonary interstitial emphysema in a preterm baby
(TAYLOR & FRANCIS LTD, 2010)
Pulmonary interstitial emphysema is a common complication of mechanical ventilation in preterm babies. We report a case of severe unilateral pulmonary interstitial emphysema in a premature newborn, treated with high-frequency ...
High intensity exercise training worsens alveolar destruction in pulmonary emphysema rats
(Mavera Edições Técnicas e Científicas Ltda, 2014)
Persistent interstitial pulmonary emphysema in the newborn: Clinical case Enfisema pulmonar intersticial persistente en recién nacido. Caso clínico
Persistent Interstitial Pulmonary Emphysema (PIPE) is a syndrome characterized by air leak to the perivascular tissue in the lung, affecting newborns with history of mechanical ventilation. It is also characterized by lack ...
HISTOMORPHOMETRICAL EVALUATION IN TESTIS AND EPIDIDYMIS OF RATS WITH PULMONARY EMPHYSEMA EXPERIMENTALLY INDUCED BY PROLONGED EXPOSURE TO CIGARETTE SMOKE
(Univ Federal Uberlandia, 2016-07-01)
The study evaluated the histomorphometrical aspects of testis and epididymis of adult rats with pulmonary emphysema experimentally induced by exposure to cigarette smoke for 30 weeks. Previous studies related to effects ...
Cell Therapy with Bone Marrow Mononuclear Cells in Elastase-Induced Pulmonary Emphysema
Emphysema is characterized by destruction of alveolar walls with loss of gas exchange surface and consequent progressive dyspnea. This study aimed to evaluate the efficiency of cell therapy with bone marrow mononuclear ...
Phase I clinical trial of cell therapy in patients with advanced chronic obstructive pulmonary disease: follow-up of up to 3 years
(Associação Brasileira de Hematologia e Hemoterapia e daSociedade Brasileira de Transplante de Medula Óssea, 2013)
BACKGROUND Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease is a major inflammatory disease of the airways and an enormous therapeutic challenge. Within the spectrum of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, pulmonary emphysema is ...
Alterations in pulmonary structure by elastase administration in a model of emphysema in mice is associated with functional disturbances
(Elsevier Doyma Sl, 2012-05-01)
Several experimental studies of pulmonary emphysema using animal models have been described in the literature. However, only a few of these studies have focused on the assessment of ergometric function as a non-invasive ...
Animal models in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease-an overview
(Informa Healthcare, 2014-08-01)
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is characterized by progressive airway obstruction resultant from an augmented inflammatory response of the respiratory tract to noxious particles and gases. Previous reports ...
