Abstract

There is increasing evidence that environmental agents affect the lung, in part, by inducing significant changes in lung connective tissue. The mechanisms by which this occurs are undoubtedly complex, but with the rapid accumulation of information regarding the composition of lung connective tissue and the processes that control its production and destruction, it should soon be possible to unravel the mechanisms by which environmental agents induce derangement of lung connective tissue. When these mechanisms are understood, it should be possible to devise therapeutic approaches to prevent such changes.
