    The pulmonary extracellular matrix (ECM) determines the tissue architecture of the lung, and provides mechanical stability and elastic recoil, which are essential for physiological lung function. Biochemical and biomechanical signals initiated by the ECM direct cellular function and differentiation, and thus play a decisive role in lung development, tissue remodelling processes and maintenance. Pulmonary surfactants and their role in pathophysiology of lung disorders Aparna Akella & Shripad B Deshpande* Department of Physiology, Institute of Medical Sciences, Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi , India Surfactant is an agent that decreases the surface tension between two media. The surface tension between gaseous-.

    Surfactant is a unique lipid and protein substance made by type II cells in the lung that provides inflation stability, decreases the work of breathing, and has components with innate host defense properties.

    Pulmonary surfactant is a surface-active lipoprotein complex (phospholipoprotein) formed by type II alveolar proteins and lipids that make up the surfactant have both hydrophilic and hydrophobic regions. By adsorbing to the air-water interface of alveoli, with hydrophilic head groups in the water and the hydrophobic tails facing towards the air, the main lipid component of surfactant.

LUNG SURFACTANT: BASIC RESEARCH IN THE PATHOGENESIS OF LUNG DISORDERS, VOLUME L Edited by B MULLER and P, VON WICHERT, Farm ington, Connecticut: S, Karger Publishers,pp, ,00 This book deals with the implications of basic research on pulmonary surfactant in the pathogenesis of lung disorders, which was discussed.

Discovery of lung surfactant deficiency as a main cause of neonatal respiratory distress syndrome (NRDS) has influenced a steep increase in lung surfactant research.

Although this has yielded impactful scientific discoveries, much of the basic research on lung surfactants has failed to translate into clinical practices. Pathological examination forms a key element in the final diagnosis of a variety of malignant and non-malignant respiratory disorders, and directs treatment.

Research has contributed to important advances in the pathological diagnosis of these respiratory disorders. This book is a complete overview of diagnostic procedures and pathological examination data, which help support the clinician in.

In addition to investigating the activity and delivery of clinical exogenous surfactants, research is also attempting to develop new synthetic or semi-synthetic surfactants for treating lung injury ([46, 47, –] for review).

Synthetic lung surfactants manufactured under controlled conditions in the laboratory have significant potential. Lung surfactant: basic research in the pathogenesis of lung disorders B.

Soon scientists showed that a lack of surfactant is involved in human lung disease. "At that point the research, to use the trite term, exploded," Clements says.

StoryCorps. Integrating basic and clinical research on the biophysical and physiological functions of pulmonary surfactants discovered some 50 years ago, this practical reference presents cutting-edge coverage of surfactant-related lung disease as well as a review of basic concepts of surfactants and surfactant film behavior in lung : $ Ladanyi, E., Suzuki, Möbius, D., Schäfer, K., Stalder, K., Presence, localization and possible role of Sp-A and Sp-B in the human lung surfactant surface layer.

Surfactant dysfunction in ALI/ARDS. There are a number of pathways by which lung surfactant activity can be compromised during acute pulmonary injury, as summarized schematically in Figures 1 and and2.

ments in lung surfactant activity, and reductions in the content or composition of active large surfactant aggregates, have been reported in BAL, edema fluid, or.

Pulmonary surfactant is a complex of highly active phospholipids and proteins that cover the alveolar epithelial surface of the lungs 1. Surfactant is synthesized in the alveolar type-II cells, stored in the lamellar bodies, and secreted to the alveolar space where it undergoes complex changes 2.

The composition of lung surfactant in humans is very constant, although it may change in disease. Lung surfactant, a lipo-protein complex, is a highly surface-active material found in the fluid lining the air-liquid interface of the alveolar surface.

Surfactant plays a dual function of preventing alveolar collapse during breathing cycle and protection of the lungs from injuries and infections caused by foreign bodies and pathogens. Varying degrees of structure-function abnormalities of. The second edition of The Lung: Development, Aging and the Environment provides an understanding of the multi-faceted nature of lung development, aging, and how the environment influences these processes.

As an essential resource to respiratory, pulmonary, and thoracic scientists and physicians it provides an interface between the “normal” and “disease” cluster of chapters, allowing.

Since the first edition of this book was published inthere has been a spectacular development in both basic research on the pulmonary surfactant system and the clinical use of surfactant for treatment of lung diseases hence the addition of the subtitle indicating the expansion of knowledge in the field and the expanded information.Previous experience in basic research allowed him to define the minor surfactant phospholipids for the first time in the mids.

He expanded these studies to ontogeny, surface activity, turnover and recycling of surfactant phospholipids, and determined the relationship of the new surfactant indices to risk of respiratory distress syndrome. Lung surfactant coats tiny air sacs in the lung. Without it, every breath is a struggle, like blowing up millions of little balloons.

With surfactant, breathing is as easy as blowing soap bubbles.
