  1. 1. Interstitial lung disease in polymyositis and dermatomyositis

    Author : Maryam Fathi; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : dermatomyositis; polymyositis; interstitial lung disease;

    Abstract : Polymyositis and dermatomyositis are rare disease entities affecting skeletal muscle and other organs such as the lungs. Interstitial lung disease (ILD) is increasingly recognized as a serious complication of poly-/dermatomyositis. READ MORE

  2. 2. Monitoring cystic fibrosis lung disease in children - Clinical utility and associations between functional and structural methods

    Author : Marcus Svedberg; Göteborgs universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; cystic fibrosis; children; lung disease;

    Abstract : Background: Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is an inherited progressive disease that causes severe damage to the airways and other organs of the body. Many methods are available to track CF lung disease but longitudinal data are needed to better understand the clinical utility and associations between different methods. READ MORE

  3. 3. Immunological aspects on cystic fibrosis lung disease

    Author : Malin Carlsson; Njurmedicin; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; transplantation; Immunology; serology; pyocyanin; mannan binding lectin; Pseudomonas aeruginosa; ANCA; Cystic fibrosis; bactericidal permeability increasing protein; Immunologi; serologi;

    Abstract : In cystic fibrosis (CF) colonization of the airways with Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a major cause of deterioration and death. Host defence fails to clear the invading bacteria, which results in a chronic destructive inflammatory process. READ MORE

  4. 4. Models of alveolar remodeling in chronic lung disease

    Author : Oskar Rosmark; Institutionen för experimentell medicinsk vetenskap; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Extracellular matrix ECM ; Decellularization; Mass Spectrometry MS ; Biomechanics; Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease COPD ; Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis IPF ; Alveolar epithelial cells; Fibroblasts; Lung slices;

    Abstract : Lung function is highly dependent on the structure of the lung parenchyma. Remodeling of the alveolar compartment is a central part of the pathology of chronic lung disease such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF). READ MORE

  5. 5. Interleukin-17 in models of neutrophilic lung disease

    Author : Stefan Ivanov; Göteborgs universitet; []
    Keywords : Interleukin-17; Interleukin-23; Matrix metalloproteinase-9; neutrophils; macrophages; CD4 cells; innate response; lungs;

    Abstract : Several acute or chronic lung disorders like adult respiratory distress syndrome, acute severe asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, chronic lung allograft rejection and cystic fibrosis, are associated with signs of an excess innate response in the bronchoalveolar space. Neutrophils may play a pathogenic role in these lung diseases by contributing to non-specific bronchial hyperresponsiveness and bronchial hypersecretion, as well as to epithelial damage and tissue remodelling.
