This suggests that during infection rather than antagonize cytokines, we should strive for the selective therapeutic manipulation of their specific adverse effects that promote tissue injury, such as parenchymal cell apoptosis.
In these cases, such as hydrancephaly and holoprosencephaly, the ventricles are not only relatively enlarged but also often distorted due to overlying parenchymal abnormalities.
PPHN is a frequent complicating factor in the term or near-term newborn with parenchymal lung disease, such as MAS (meconium aspiration syndrome) or pneumonia.
The regenerating cells come from the proliferation of nearby parenchymal cells, which serve to replace the lost cells.
The parenchymal tissues contain the functional cells (e.g., squamous dermal cells, liver hepatocytes and pulmonary alveolar cells).
Within organs, there are two basic types of tissues, the parenchymal and stromal tissues.
Repair of injured cells can be accomplished by: (1) regeneration of the parenchymal cells; or (2) repair and replacement by the stromal connective tissue.
The ability to regenerate varies greatly with the type of parenchymal cell.
When the stromal framework is damaged, the regenerated parenchymal cells may be irregularly dispersed in the organ resulting in diminished organ function.
Patient were described with hilar nodes and parenchymal changes as well as extra-pulmonary findings.
