Bacterial Lipopolysaccharide Enhances PDGF Signaling and Pulmonary Fibrosis in Rats Exposed to Carbon Nanotubes


By: M. Cesta n, J. Ryman-Rasmussen n, D. Wallace*, T. Masinde*, G. Hurlburt*, A. Taylor n, J. Bonner n

author keywords: carbon nanotubes; inflammation; lipopolysaccharide; fibrosis; growth factors
MeSH headings : Animals; Bacteria / metabolism; Fibroblasts / metabolism; Fibrosis; Inflammation; Lipopolysaccharides / metabolism; Macrophages / metabolism; Male; Nanotechnology / methods; Nanotubes, Carbon / chemistry; Platelet-Derived Growth Factor / metabolism; Rats; Rats, Sprague-Dawley; Receptors, Platelet-Derived Growth Factor / metabolism; Signal Transduction; Soot / chemistry
TL;DR: The data suggest that LPS exacerbates MWCNT-induced lung fibrosis by amplifying production of PDGF-AA in macrophages and epithelial cells, and by increasingPDGF-Ralpha on pulmonary fibroblasts. (via Semantic Scholar)

Respiratory syncytial virus infection reduces lung inflammation and fibrosis in mice exposed to vanadium pentoxide


By: E. Turpin*, A. Antao-Menezes*, M. Cesta*, J. Mangum*, D. Wallace*, E. Bermudez*, J. Bonner n

MeSH headings : Animals; Cytokines / metabolism; Male; Mice; Mice, Inbred AKR; Pneumonia / chemically induced; Pneumonia / complications; Pneumonia / metabolism; Pulmonary Fibrosis / chemically induced; Pulmonary Fibrosis / complications; Pulmonary Fibrosis / metabolism; Respiratory Syncytial Virus Infections / complications; Respiratory Syncytial Virus Infections / metabolism; Vanadium Compounds
TL;DR: It is suggested that RSV infection reduces the severity of V2O5-induced fibrosis by suppressing growth factors and collagen genes and suggests that viral infection also suppresses the innate immune response that normally serves to resolve V2 O5- induced fibrosis. (via Semantic Scholar)

Inhaled Multiwalled Carbon Nanotubes Potentiate Airway Fibrosis in Murine Allergic Asthma


By: J. Ryman-Rasmussen n, E. Tewksbury*, O. Moss*, M. Cesta n, B. Wong* & J. Bonner n

author keywords: carbon nanotubes; asthma; fibrosis; lung
MeSH headings : Administration, Inhalation; Aerosols; Animals; Asthma / chemically induced; Asthma / immunology; Asthma / pathology; Bronchoalveolar Lavage Fluid / cytology; Fibrosis / chemically induced; Fibrosis / immunology; Fibrosis / pathology; Humans; Interleukin-13 / immunology; Lung / cytology; Lung / immunology; Lung / pathology; Macrophages / cytology; Macrophages / metabolism; Male; Mice; Mice, Inbred C57BL; Nanotubes, Carbon / adverse effects; Nanotubes, Carbon / ultrastructure; Ovalbumin / immunology; Particle Size; Platelet-Derived Growth Factor / immunology; Random Allocation; Transforming Growth Factor beta1 / immunology
TL;DR: It is indicated that individuals with pre-existing allergic inflammation may be susceptible to airway fibrosis from inhaled multiwalled carbon nanotubes, and combined ovalbumin sensitization and MWCNT inhalation also synergistically increased IL-5 mRNA levels, which could further contribute to airways fibrosis.

Inhaled carbon nanotubes reach the subpleural tissue in mice


By: J. Ryman-Rasmussen n, M. Cesta n, A. Brody n, J. Shipley-Phillips n, J. Everitt n, E. Tewksbury*, O. Moss*, B. Wong* ...

MeSH headings : Aerosols / adverse effects; Animals; Immunity / drug effects; Inhalation Exposure / analysis; Male; Mice; Mice, Inbred C57BL; Nanotubes, Carbon / adverse effects; Nanotubes, Carbon / ultrastructure; Pleura / drug effects; Pleura / immunology; Pleura / ultrastructure; Pulmonary Fibrosis / chemically induced
TL;DR: It is shown that multi-walled carbon nanotubes reach the sub-pleura in mice after a single inhalation exposure of 30 mg/m3 for 6 hours and it is suggested that minimizing inhalation of nanot tubes during handling is prudent until further long term assessments are conducted.

Modulation of fibroblast growth factor expression and signal transduction in type II cells

Li, C. M., Newman, D., Cesta, M., Tompkins, L., Khosla, J., & Sannes, P. L. (2003, March). CHEST, Vol. 123, pp. 429S–429S.
