- Effects on cytokines and histology by treatment with the ACE inhibitor captopril and the antioxidant retinoic acid in the monocrotaline model of experimentally induced lung fibrosisRichard C Baybutt
Dept of Human Nutrition, Kansas State University, Manhattan, KS 66506, USA
Curr Pharm Des 13:1327-33. 2007..Each of the drugs exerts different and particular effects on serum and tissue levels of various cytokines, suggesting that each drug is efficient at different points of attack in the control of lung fibrosis...
- Type II pneumocytes modulate surfactant production in response to cigarette smoke constituents: restoration by vitamins A and EYuan Xue
Department of Human Nutrition, Justin Hall, Kansas State University, Manhattan, KS 66506 1407, United States
Toxicol In Vitro 19:1061-9. 2005..Type II pneumocytes seem to adjust surfactant production dependent upon the number of type II pneumocytes to produce it and vitamin A or E enhance cell attachment in the presence of the smoke toxins...
- Vitamin A and emphysemaRichard C Baybutt
Department of Human Nutrition, Kansas State University, Manhattan, Kansas 66506, USA
Vitam Horm 75:385-401. 2007..Nevertheless, the potential for this novel approach in prevention and treatment of emphysema is an exciting area of research...
- Decreases in bone mineral content by dietary all-trans retinoic acid precede decreases in bone mineral density in a weanling rat model of cigarette smoke-induced lung injuriesYuan Xue
Department of Human Nutrition, Kansas State University, Manhattan, KS, USA
Int J Vitam Nutr Res 81:5-11. 2011..05) at week 4. The same results were observed when BMC was expressed relative to body weight. These data suggest that caution should be used when RA is used to treat smoke-related lung injuries...
- Vitamin A depletion induced by cigarette smoke is associated with the development of emphysema in ratsTing Li
Department of Human Nutrition, Kansas State University, Manhattan, KS 66506, USA
J Nutr 133:2629-34. 2003..The results of this research indicate that exposure to cigarette smoke induces vitamin A depletion in rats, which is associated with the development of emphysema...
- Dietary fish oil protects against lung and liver inflammation and fibrosis in monocrotaline treated ratsRichard C Baybutt
Department of Human Nutrition, Kansas State University, Justin Hall, Manhattan, KS 66502 1407, USA
Toxicology 175:1-13. 2002..These results also indicate that fish oil protects against inflammation and fibrosis in the lung and liver, and against hepatocyte vacuole formation in MCT-treated rats...
