Reversal of Emphysema-Related Lung Destruction?

Emphysema-Related Lung Destruction and its Reversal by GHK (Genome Medicine)

EXCERPT: "Treatment of human fibroblasts with GHK recapitulated TGFβ-induced gene-expression patterns, led to the organization of the actin cytoskeleton, and elevated the expression of integrin β1. Furthermore, addition of GHK or TGFβ restored collagen I contraction and remodeling by fibroblasts derived from COPD lungs compared to fibroblasts from former smokers without COPD...

Furthermore, [it was shown] that by treating distal lung fibroblasts from COPD patients with GHK, we can restore normal contractile function through re-organization of the actin cytoskeleton and up-regulation of integrin-β1. These data further support the potential of GHK as a therapeutic in the treatment of emphysema."
