Felix Chua, Sujal R Desai, Andrew G Nicholson, Anand Devaraj, Elisabetta Renzoni, Alexandra Rice, Athol U Wells,

Pleuroparenchymal fibroelastosis (PPFE) is an unusual pulmonary disease with unique clinical, radiological, and pathological characteristics. Designated a rare idiopathic interstitial pneumonia in 2013, its name refers to a combination of fibrosis involving the visceral pleura and fibroelastotic changes predominating in the subpleural lung parenchyma. Although a number of disease associations ... Read more >>

Characterization of human PDGFR-β-positive pericytes from IPF and non-IPF lungs.

Carole L Wilson, Sarah E Stephenson, Jean Paul Higuero, Carol Feghali-Bostwick, Chi F Hung, Lynn M Schnapp,

Pericytes are key regulators of the microvasculature through their close interactions with the endothelium. However, pericytes play additional roles in tissue homeostasis and repair, in part by transitioning into myofibroblasts. Accumulation of myofibroblasts is a hallmark of fibrotic diseases such as idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF). To understand the contribution and ... Read more >>

Fibrotic disorders account for an increasing burden of disease-associated morbidity and mortality worldwide. Although numerous risk factors have been recognized, the etiologies of many of these clinical syndromes have not been identified, and they are often termed idiopathic or cryptogenic. Here, we provide an evolutionary perspective on fibrosis aimed at ... Read more >>

Classification and natural history of the idiopathic interstitial pneumonias.

Dong Soon Kim, Harold R Collard, Talmadge E King,

In the American Thoracic Society/European Respiratory Society consensus classification, idiopathic interstitial pneumonias are classified into seven clinicopathologic entities. The classification is largely based on histopathology, but depends on the close interaction of clinician, radiologist, and pathologist. An accurate diagnosis can be very difficult, especially when deciding between idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis ... Read more >>
