RESEARCH: “Endoplasmic reticulum stress response is activated in pulmonary hypoplasia secondary to congenital diaphragmatic hernia, but is decreased by administration of amniotic fluid stem cells.”

Pulmonary hypoplasia secondary to congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) is characterized by impaired epithelial homeostasis. Recently, amniotic fluid stem cells (AFSCs) have been shown to promote growth in hypoplastic lungs of rat fetuses with CDH. Herein, we investigated whether CDH hypoplastic lungs mount an endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress response and whether AFSCs could re-establish pulmonary epithelial homeostasis.
