Sample text

The capillaries empty into the pulmonary veins, which travel a path independent of the bronchi, at the periphery of the acinus. When the interlobular septa are well formed, the veins lie within the septal fibrous tissue. At the hilus of each lung, the two pulmonary veins independently enter into the left atrium. The bronchial blood supply is through the systemic circulation, arising from the aorta or the intercostal, internal mammary, or subclavian arteries. In gross specimens, the bronchial arteries can be identified in the connective tissue of the bronchial wall.

In the absence of lung damage, however, such engraftment of non–lung-derived cells appears to be a rare event. Alveoli are composed of capillaries and lymphatics encased in a thin epithelial layer. More than 90% of the alveolar surface is composed of type I pneumocytes (Figure 2-5). These are terminally differentiated, large flat squamous epithelial cells that possess a relatively simple ultrastructure. Their function is to allow gaseous exchange between the alveolar gas and the bloodstream; consequently, they require little more than a nucleus and cell membrane with a few mitochondria and a limited secretory pathway.

Cancers provide a good example of this mechanism. Tumors frequently outgrow their blood supply, so their cores become hypoxic. It has been found that tumors from animals with defective endoplasmic reticulum stress signaling fail to grow well, and most lung cancers show evidence of UPR activation. Consequently, modulation of endoplasmic reticulum stress may offer a target for treating thoracic malignancies. Attempts to identify antimesothelioma therapies found that proteasome inhibition with bortezomib could cause cell cycle arrest and death of cultured mesothelioma lines.
