Adiponectin attenuates lung fibroblasts activation and pulmonary fibrosis induced by paraquat.
 

Author(s): Rong Yao, Yu Cao, Ya-rong He, Wayne Bond Lau, Zhi Zeng, Zong-an Liang

Journal:

 

Pulmonary fibrosis is one of the most common complications of paraquat (PQ) poisoning, which demands for more effective therapies. Accumulating evidence suggests adiponectin (APN) may be a promising therapy against fibrotic diseases. In the current study, we determine whether the ...

The volume ratio of ground glass opacity in early lung CT predicts mortality in acute paraquat poisoning.
 

Author(s): Xin Kang, Da-Yong Hu, Chang-Bin Li, Xin-Hua Li, Shu-Ling Fan, Yong Liu, Guang-Yu Tang, Zi-Sheng Ai, Tianfu Wu, Chandra Mohan, Xin J Zhou, Jun-Yan Liu, Ai Peng

Journal:

 

Pulmonary injury is the main cause of death in acute paraquat (PQ) poisoning. However, whether quantitative lung computed tomography (CT) can be useful in predicting the outcome of PQ poisoning remains unknown. We aimed to identify early findings of quantitative lung CT as predictors ...

Connective tissue growth factor stimulates the proliferation, migration and differentiation of lung fibroblasts during paraquat-induced pulmonary fibrosis.
 

Author(s): Zhizhou Yang, Zhaorui Sun, Hongmei Liu, Yi Ren, Danbing Shao, Wei Zhang, Jinfeng Lin, Joy Wolfram, Feng Wang, Shinan Nie

Journal: Mol Med Rep. 2015 Jul;12(1):1091-7.

 

It is well established that paraquat (PQ) poisoning can cause severe lung injury during the early stages of exposure, finally leading to irreversible pulmonary fibrosis. Connective tissue growth factor (CTGF) is an essential growth factor that is involved in tissue repair and pulmonary ...

Prospects for treatment of paraquat-induced lung fibrosis with immunosuppressive drugs and the need for better prediction of outcome: a systematic review.
 

Author(s): M Eddleston, M F Wilks, N A Buckley

Journal: QJM. 2003 Nov;96(11):809-24.

 

Acute paraquat self-poisoning is a significant problem in parts of Asia, the Pacific and the Caribbean. Ingestion of large amounts of paraquat results in rapid death, but smaller doses often cause a delayed lung fibrosis that is usually fatal. Anti-neutrophil ('immunosuppressive') ...
