PDE5A inhibition attenuates bleomycin-induced pulmonary fibrosis and pulmonary hypertension through inhibition of ROS generation by Jan Posted Thu 25 Nov 2010 3:19am Pulmonary hypertension frequently complicates interstitial lung disease, where it is associated with a high mortality. Patients with this dual diagnosis often fare worse than those with pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) alone and respond poorly to standard PAH therapy, often dying of right ventricular (RV) failure. We hypothesize that nitric ... Read on »

Pathogenesis of pulmonary fibrosis in systemic sclerosis: lessons from interstitial lung disease by Jan Posted Wed 17 Nov 2010 7:16am Interstitial lung disease is a frequent complication of systemic sclerosis and currently is the leading cause of death. Our ability to predict which individuals are at greatest risk of developing clinically significant, progressive interstitial lung disease remains inadequate. Identification of circulating autoantibodies and other biomarker ... Read on »

Scleroderma is one of the causes of lower lobe pulmonary fibrosis by Jan Posted Fri 11 Sep 2009 4:56pm scleroderma This is used to describe both systemic sclerosis and morphoea. The former is a multi-system disorder whilst the latter is a purely cutaneous disease. Hardening of the skin is a common feature but unlike the variants of lupus erythematosus, the two dermopathologies involved in scleroderma are different. Both primary disease process ... Read on »
Asbestos and Pulmonary Fibrosis by Jan Posted Tue 22 Dec 2009 12:00am Our lungs get a lot of work because they are always working to trap oxygen to give to blood as well as remove carbon dioxide from the bloodstream as waste. Thus, when something happens to our lungs, it can be hugely detrimental. A lack of oxygen can make daily life difficult, and prolonged loss of air can even cause brain damage. When diseases ...

Pulmonary Fibrosis, Protein and the Need For Good Nutrition by Jan Posted Sun 05 Sep 2010 12:00am Pulmonary fibrosis is a serious disease that can possibly lead to increasing scarring of the lung tissues. The disease starts with injuries to the tissues, both within and between the alveoli (tiny air sacs) in the lungs. Continued damage leads to further scarring, which in turn can cause the lungs to become stiff. A normal lung is flexib ... Read on »

Pulmonary fibrosis natural cure by Jan Posted Sun 21 Nov 2010 9:06pm Fibrosis is an excessive growth of the white fibrous tissue. It is a consequence of the inflammation and muscular rheumatism. The growths are like scars in a body and these scars can invade organs. In the case of pulmonary fibrosis, scars endanger lungs. Over time, air sacs are replaced with fibrotic tissue. This makes it difficult to transfer th ... Read on »
