About the Edition

Abnormalities of the pulmonary circulation have long been recognised to contribute to the morbidity and mortality of bronchopulmonary dysplasia, a common condition of extremely premature infants in which oxidant stress is believed to play a major role and for which there is presently no effective treatment. The hallmark of bronchopulmonary dysplasia is an arrest in alveolar and capillary development. A major circulatory manifestation of bronchopulmonary dysplasia is pulmonary hypertension due to vasoconstriction and increased muscularisation of pulmonary resistance vessels. Animal studies suggest that altered function and structure of the pulmonary circulation may adversely affect alveolar development. Newborn rats exposed to 60% O2 for 14 days develop pulmonary hypertension and parenchymal lung abnormalities that have close morphological similarities to human bronchopulmonary dysplasia. Previous interventional studies in this model have demonstrated that the development of pulmonary hypertension is dependent upon macrophage influx to the lung and up-regulation of endothelin-1, a potent vasoconstrictor peptide. In the studies reported herein, I demonstrated that increased macrophage influx is responsible for the increased reactive oxygen species formation and protein nitration in the lungs of newborn rats exposed to 60% O2 for 14 days. A consequence of oxidant stress is the formation of 8-isoprostane, a bioactive product of lipid peroxidation, which leads to the up-regulation of endothelin-1 production in smooth muscle cells, a major cellular source in the 60% O2-exposed lung. Treatment with a thromboxane A 2 receptor antagonist, but not a cyclooxygenase-2 inhibitor, abrogated these effects, suggesting that the thromboxane A2 receptor ligand causing increased endothelin-1 in the O2-exposed lung was not a cyclooxygenase-2 product, but rather an incidental ligand, such as 8-isoprostane. Finally, the platelet-derived growth factors (-AA and -BB) and insulin-like growth factor-I are identified as mitogens, and endothelin-1 and 8-isoprostane as survival factors, of cultured pulmonary artery smooth muscle cells from infant rats, implicating them as direct mediators of pathological smooth muscle proliferation.

  Pulmonary hypertension (PH), a condition characterized by elevated pulmonary artery pressure, is usually associated with underlying cardiac or lung disease in children. In particular, PH develops in a subset of infants with bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) [ ]. Pulmonary hypertension is present in a rodent model of bronchopulmonary dysplasia at 21 days but not 6 months of age () Aaron Kleinertz, Robert Conhaim, Taylor Shuster, We hypothesized that RVH would continue into adulthood in a rat model of BPD. Rats were exposed to 21% or 95% O2 from birth to postnatal day 8.

Chapter 12 Involvement of CXCR4 and Stem Cells in a Rat Model of Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension Altmetric.   Bronchopulmonary dysplasia has a component of airway pathology, due to hyper-reactivity and airway smooth muscle cell hypertrophy that leads to elevated airway resistance. 11 Since bronchodilators are used to relieve bronchospasm in asthmatic patients and improve dynamic compliance by lowering pulmonary resistance, they have also been used to.

  Objective. Pulmonary hypertension (PH) worsens the prognosis of bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD). The following items have not been fully established for PH in BPD: clinical characterization, incidence of cardiovascular anomalies (CVAs), response to PH treatment, and outcome. Whether inhaled nitric oxide (iNO) prevents the development of bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) in premature infants is controversial. In adult rats, bleomycin (Bleo) induces lung fibrosis and pulmonary hypertension, but the effects of Bleo on the developing lung and iNO treatment on Bleo-induced neonatal lung injury are uncertain.

The underlying mechanism is thought to involve primarily pulmonary artery endothelial cell death followed by the emergence of an apoptosis-resistant cell.

Pulmonary vascular disease, in particular, pulmonary hypertension (PH), is quite prevalent in children with bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD). Recent clinical and preclinical advances in research related to this condition have led to an improved understanding of the pathophysiology of PH and the complex interactions between heart, lung, and pulmonary vasculature in infants with BPD.

Introduction There is a rising incidence of preterm births which is one of the leading cause of death in infants younger than 5 years of age [1,2]. Bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) is a common complication for infants born before 30 weeks of gestational age.

Rationale: Antenatal factors, such as chorioamnionitis, preeclampsia, and postnatal injury, are associated with an increased risk for bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) and pulmonary hypertension (PH) after preterm birth.

IGF-1 (insulin-like growth factor-1) is markedly decreased in normal preterm infants, but whether IGF-1 treatment can prevent BPD or PH is unknown. Mechanisms by which poor nutrition impacts lung development are unknown, but alterations in the gut microbiota appear to play a role.
