Expression of growth factors by airway epithelial cells in a model of chronic asthma: regulation and relationship to subepithelial fibrosis

Kumar, Rakesh K; Herbert, John; Foster, Paul S

Description

Background: Growth factors produced by airway epithelial cells may be important in the pathogenesis of subepithelial fibrosis, a distinctive lesion of chronic human asthma. Objective: To examine the relationship between the development of subepithelial fibrosis and the expression of transforming growth factor-β1 (TGF-β1) and ligands for the epidermal growth factor receptor. Methods: BALB/c mice sensitized to ovalbumin were chronically challenged by inhalation of low levels of antigen, leading...[Show more]
