Study period:2001 - 2005
Organization (1):
Investigating Researcher (2):
Research overview:
SP-C/TNF-alpha transgenic mice produce TNF-alpha overexpression in the lungs. They develop pulmonary empnysema and pulmonary hypertension. Using there mice, we will investigate the mechanism of development of pulmary emphysema and pulmary hypertension.
Keywords (3):
