Evaluation of systemic inflammatory response and lung injury induced by Crotalus durissus cascavella venom.This study investigated the systemic inflammatory response and mechanism of pulmonary lesions induced by Crotalus durissus cascavella venom in murine in the state of Bahia. In order to investigate T helper Th1, Th2 and Th17 lymphocyte profiles, we measured interleukin (IL) -2, IL-4, IL-6, IL-10, IL-17, tumor necrosis factor (TNF) and interferon gamma (IFN-γ) levels in the peritoneal fluid and macerated lungs of mice and histopathological alterations at the specific time windows of 1h, 3h, 6h, 12h, 24h and 48h after inoculation with Crotalus durissus cascavella venom. The data demonstrated an increase of acute-phase cytokines (IL-6 and TNF) in the first hours after inoculation, with a subsequent increase in IL-10 and IL-4, suggesting immune response modulation for the Th2 profile. The histopathological analysis showed significant morphological alterations, compatible with acute pulmonary lesions, with polymorphonuclear leukocyte (PMN) infiltration, intra-alveolar edema, congestion, hemorrhage and atelectasis. These findings advance our understanding of the dynamics of envenomation and contribute to improve clinical management and antiophidic therapy for individuals exposed to venom.

The preparation of cell-containing microbubble scaffolds to mimic alveoli structure as 3D drug screening system for lung cancer.Cancer is the leading cause of mortality worldwide, and lung cancer is the most malignant. However, the high failure rate in oncology drug development from in vitro studies to in vivo preclinical models indicates that the modern methods of evaluating drug efficacies in vitro are not reliable. Traditional 2-dimensional (2D) cell culture has been proved inadequate to mimic real physiological conditions. Current 3-dimensional (3D) cell culture methods do not represent the delicate structure of lung alveoli. To mimic lung alveoli structure, a cell containing enzyme-cross-linked gelatin microbubble scaffold was produced by mixing surfactant-containing gelatin solution with microbial transglutaminase (mTGase)-mixed A549 cell suspension in a four-channel flow focusing microfluidic device. With uniform pore size of about 100 μm in diameter, this gelatin microbubble scaffold resembled the lung alveoli in structure and in mechanical properties with good biocompatibility. Effective gemcitabine concentration required to induce cell death in microbubble scaffolds was significantly higher than in 2D culture together with a longer treatment time. Cell death mechanisms were confirmed to be gemcitabine-induced cell apoptosis through Western blotting and real-time PCR. H&E staining and TUNEL assay showed rounded cells with DNA damage in drug-treated scaffolds. Taken together, the cell-containing microbubble scaffolds successfully mimicked lung alveoli in structure and cellular responses after gemcitabine treatment were similar to clinical regimen of treating lung carcinoma. The microbubble scaffold is promising to facilitate anticancer drug discovery by providing more accurate preclinical predictions.

Differences in cytotoxicity of lung epithelial cells exposed to titanium dioxide nanofibers and nanoparticles: Comparison of air-liquid interface and submerged cell cultures.Air Liquid Interface (ALI) system has emerged as a useful tool for toxicity evaluation of nanomaterials related to inhalation since the system mimics the aerosol exposure. We compared the biological responses of lung epithelial cells exposed to titanium dioxide (TiO) nanofibers and nanoparticles in ALI and submerged cell cultures systems. Cells were exposed to 2 and 10 μg/cm for 24 h, 48 h and 72 h and LDH release, TiO internalization, DNA-double strand breaks (DSBs) and ROS production were assessed. LDH release was similar in both systems and particles had higher cytoplasmic uptake in submerged systems. Both TiO types were located in the cytoplasm but nanofibers had nuclear uptake regardless to the system tested. Cells exposed to TiO nanofibers had higher DSBs in the ALI system than in submerged cell cultures but cells exposed to TiO nanoparticles had similar DSBs in both systems. ROS production was higher in cells exposed to TiO nanofibers compared to cells exposed to TiO nanoparticles. In conclusion, cytotoxicity of lung epithelial cells was similar in ALI or submerged cell cultures, however cells exposed to TiO nanofibers displayed higher toxicity than cells exposed to TiO nanoparticles.

Oxidation of cathepsin S by major chemicals of cigarette smoke.Lung cysteine cathepsin S (CatS) that is a potent elastase plays a deleterious role in alveolar remodeling during smoke-induced emphysema. Despite the presence of a reactive nucleophilic cysteine (Cys25) within its active site, most of its elastinolytic activity is preserved after exposure to cigarette smoke extract (CSE), a major source of sulfhydryl oxidants. This result led us to decipher CatS resistance to major and representative CSE oxidants: hydrogen peroxide, formaldehyde, acrolein and peroxynitrite. CatS was inactivated by hydrogen peroxide, peroxynitrite and acrolein in a time- and dose-dependent manner, while formaldehyde was a weaker oxidant. Hydrogen peroxide, but not CSE, formaldehyde, and peroxynitrite impaired the autocatalytic maturation of pro-CatS, whereas acrolein prevented the formation of mature CatS without hindering the initial step of the two-step autocatalytic process. Far-UV CD spectra analysis supported that oxidation by CSE and hydrogen peroxide did not led to a structural alteration of CatS, despite a notable increase of protein carbonylation, a major hallmark of oxidative damage. Evaluation of the oxidation status of Cys25 by specific biotinylated redox sensing probes suggested the formation of sulfenic acid followed by a slower conversion to sulfinic acid after incubation with hydrogen peroxide. Addition of reducing reagents (dithiothreitol, glutathione and N-acetyl cysteine) led to a partial recovery of CatS activity following incubation with CSE, hydrogen peroxide and peroxynitrite. Current results provide some mechanistic evidence of CatS stability and activity in the presence of CSE, supporting its harmful contribution to the pathophysiology of emphysema.

Differences in clinical characteristics and outcomes between men and women with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis: a multicenter retrospective cohort study.Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a disease with a male predominance. Prior data suggest that male sex is associated with disease progression and survival. The basis for this sex difference is unknown.
