    Masahiro Yamashita
    Department of Pathology, Tohoku University Graduate School of Medicine, Sendai 980 8575, Japan
    Hum Pathol 40:542-51. 2009
    ..Three-dimensional reconstruction of images revealed that some new lymphatics lacked connection to existing lymphatics. During the progression of diffuse alveolar damage, lymphangiogenesis occurs independent of capillary angiogenesis...
  2. doi request reprint The definition of fibrogenic processes in fibroblastic foci of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis based on morphometric quantification of extracellular matrices
    Masahiro Yamashita
    Department of Pathology, Tohoku University Graduate School of Medicine, Sendai, Miyagi 980 8575, Japan
    Hum Pathol 40:1278-87. 2009
    ..Lymphangiogenesis was undetected in all the 3 stages. Thus, pathologic staging helps understand the roles of the factors involved in tissue remodeling in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis...
  3. ncbi request reprint Macrophages participate in lymphangiogenesis in idiopathic diffuse alveolar damage through CCL19-CCR7 signal
    Masahiro Yamashita
    Department of Pathology, Tohoku University Graduate School of Medicine, Sendai, Miyagi 980 8575, Japan
    Hum Pathol 40:1553-63. 2009
    ..Dual immunostaining showed the coexpression of CCL19-a ligand for CCR7-on the lymphatic endothelium. Thus, macrophages may participate in lymphangiogenesis in diffuse alveolar damage, which is facilitated by CCL19 and CCR7...
