Stem Cells in the Respiratory System
Rojas (pulmonary, allergy, and critical care medicine, Emory U.) assembles eight chapters that address the role that stem cells could play in the context of physiological stress and injury to the lung, especially the use of local, endogenous, and exogenous progenitor/stem cells in prevention and treatment. Pulmonary, pediatric, and other specialists from the US and Germany discuss lung structure and function and their correlation with endogenous lung stem cells; the different sources of adult mesenchymal stem cells, the issue of cell differentiation into alveolar epithelial cells, and implications for future cell therapies in the lung; the implications of mobilization and recruitment of progenitor, endothelial, and epithelial cells; the role of fibrocytes; the different proteins that form the extracellular matrix and how each can induce differentiation of stem cells; the effect of exercise on these cells; and clinical applications in acute lung injury.
