Obstructive diseases and remodeling

Several lung diseases are characterized by remodeling that changes the cellular composition, reactivity and function of the affected tissues in a progressive manner in response to a pathological process and which affects pulmonary functions. This remodeling process plays a central role in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), asthma in some forms of pulmonary hypertension, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis and cystic fibrosis.
