Retinoic acid as a therapy for emphysema?

Luigi M De Luca, Sharon A. Ross

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

In concert with its action as a morphogen during embryonal development, retinoic acid appears to be able to regenerate lung alveoli in an experimental model of elastase-induced emphysema in rats, thereby inhibiting manifestation of the disease. The application to humans is now an interesting possibility.
