Effectiveness of rosiglitazone on bleomycin-induced lung fibrosis: Assessed by micro-computed tomography and pathologic scores
European Journal of Radiology, 08/09/2012
Jin GY et al. – The results demonstrate that rosiglitazone displays a protective effect on pulmonary fibrosis in mice and that the visualization of bleomycin–induced pulmonary fibrosis using micro–CT is satisfactory to assess the effects of rosiglitazone. It implies that micro–CT can be applied to evaluate therapeutic efficacies of a variety of candidate drugs for lung diseases.
