Dynamic role of hyaluronan (HYA) in connective tissue activation and inflammation.

An increased tissue accumulation of HYA occurs in several human and experimental inflammatory conditions. Such is the case in sarcoidosis, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis and farmer's lung in man, and experimental bleomycin-induced lung damage in rats. Graft rejection in man and rats, experimental myocarditis in mice and myocardial infarction in rats follow the same pattern. Increased amounts of HYA also appear in gut luminal perfusion fluid in human inflammatory bowel disease. A transient accumulation of HYA is seen in wound healing, which is more sustained in fetuses. An increased accumulation of water and presentation of ligands for receptors on inflammatory cells are two consequences of the HYA accumulation.[1]
