Lymphatic proliferation ameliorates pulmonary fibrosis after lung injury

Though there have been many experiences on pulmonary blood vessels in lung fibrosis, the contribution of lung lymphatics is unknown. We examined the mechanism and penalties of lymphatic transforming in mice with lung fibrosis after bleomycin harm or telomere dysfunction. Prox1-EGFP mice and immunohistochemistry revealed widespread lymphangiogenesis after bleomycin and in fibrotic lungs of transgenic mice […]
