  • In the presence of alterations in the blood-brain barrier, injection of contrast material increases brain oedema [ 6, 7, 8, 9].

  • In humans, our group and one other have demonstrated marked alterations in MHC expression in the diaphragm in severe emphysema [ 12 13 ] . This shift toward slow MHC isoforms has been proposed to subserve an adaptive resistance to fatigue in the human diaphragm in emphysema which is similar to that seen in the animal model.

  • Therefore, it is possible that alterations in the activities of integrins or adhesive sites on other ECM molecules induced by the whole cCAF molecule, and not by the N-peptide, could affect FN accumulation [ 47 ] .
