Early determinants of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease: Lung regeneration, a new therapeutic target?

[Early determinants of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease: Lung regeneration, a new therapeutic target?] Rev Mal Respir. 2019 Apr 19;: Authors: Zysman M, Ribeiro Baptista B, Essari LA, Giffard C, Chabot F, Epaud R, Lanone S, Boczkowski J, Boyer L Abstract Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, a disease of increasing incidence, is related mainly to smoking. Although symptoms only appear at adulthood, the disease can develop from early life events. For example, bronchopulmonary dysplasia, which occurs in preterm infants, is characterized by airspace enlargement and could lead to late lung consequences. Once the lesions are established, no curative treatment is available. Stimulating lung regeneration from endogenous stem cells is therefore an exciting research domain, particularly through the activation of the mesenchymal contingent located in the lung stem cell niche.

Abstract Cellular senescence results in cell cycle arrest with secretion of cytokines, chemokines, growth factors and remodeling proteins (senescence associated secretory phenotype; SASP) that have autocrine and paracrine effects on the tissue microenvironment. SASP can promote remodeling, inflammation, infectious susceptibility, angiogenesis and proliferation, while hindering tissue repair and regeneration. While the role of senescence and contributions of senescent cells are increasingly recognized in the context of aging and a variety of disease states, relatively less is known regarding the portfolio and influ...

Authors: Paes B, Carbonell-Estrany X Abstract INTRODUCTION: The use of palivizumab for the prevention of respiratory syncytial virus-related hospitalization is well-established and has been adopted universally in pediatric position statements. Areas covered: The definition of chronic lung disease (CLD, bronchopulmonary dysplasia) has evolved over time and has significantly impacted the reported incidence of the condition, and the description of mild, moderate and severe disease in published studies. We reviewed lung function in infancy, childhood and adulthood of healthy preterm infants and those with CLD and how a...

(University of Alabama at Birmingham) Researchers have found a novel, pathogenic entity that is a fundamental link between chronic inflammation and tissue destruction in lungs of patients with COPD. These exosomes from activated neutrophils caused COPD damage when they were instilled into the lungs of healthy mice. Remarkably, neutrophil exosomes from the lung fluids of human patients with COPD and neonates with bronchopulmonary dysplasia also caused COPD lung damage when put into the lungs of healthy mice.

te; A Abstract There is currently growing evidence that events occurring early in life, both before and after birth, are significantly associated with the risk of asthma, COPD and low lung function later in life. In fact, from conception to death there are continuous, dynamic numbers of gene-environment interactions that determine two fundamental biologic processes, lung development and lung ageing. Over 130 birth cohorts have been initiated in the last 30 years. These birth cohorts have improved our understanding of asthma inception, progression and persistency. In this review, we summarize the main data upon tho...

Abstract The receptor for advanced glycation end products (RAGE) is a multi-ligand pattern recognition receptor that is highly expressed in lung epithelial cells. It helps alveolar epithelial cells to maintain their morphology and specific architecture. However, in various pathophysiological conditions, pulmonary tissues express supraphysiological level of RAGE and its ligands including advanced glycation end products, high mobility group box 1 proteins and S100 proteins. These ligands on interaction with RAGE stimulate various downstream signaling pathways that generate inflammation and oxidative stress leading t...

Conclusions: Adult with a history of BPD display an increased proportion of CD3+CD8+ T cells and a reduced CD4/CD8 ratio in the bronchoalveolar space, indicating resemblance to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. This finding is compatible with the idea that CD3+CD8+ T cells play a pathogenic role in the development of chronic airway obstruction in adults with a history of BPD.

In this report, we present data demonstrating significant upregulation of FGF7, FGF10 and FGFR2 in IPF and IPAH lungs compared to donor lungs. These ligands and their cognate receptor converged on the remodeled parenchyma and vasculature of IPF and IPAH lungs. Interestingly, the expression levels of FGFR1, which has been previously shown to play a pathological role in PH development, were not significantly changed in either disease state. Intriguingly, the expression levels of FGF7, FGF10 and FGFR2 were lower in IPF lung regions undergoing active remodeling, and inversely correlated with IPAH severity, indicating that incr...

n R Abstract Alterations of the pulmonary vasculature are an important feature of human lung diseases such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, pulmonary hypertension and bronchopulmonary dysplasia. Experimental studies to investigate the pathogenesis or a therapeutic intervention in animal models of these diseases often require robust, meaningful and efficient morphometric data that allow for appropriate statistical testing. The gold standard for obtaining such data is design-based stereology. However, certain morphological characteristics of the pulmonary vasculature make the implementation of stereological...
