Title: Cigarette smoking effect on alveolar macrophages
Cluster AnalysisGDS1436 Cluster Image
Summary: Anlaysis of alveolar macrophages of 5 phenotypically normal smokers who consume ~20 packs cigarettes/year. Smoking is the leading cause of respiratory diseases collectively known as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Provides insight into early events in molecular pathogenesis of COPD.
