From the centre of such a bronchiole, a perpendicular was dropped to the edge of the Acinus (Connective tissue septum or pleura), and the number of alveoli cut by this line was then counted.
Result: Structural changes were found in the experimental (5-fluorouracil) group compared to the controls, including abnormal alveolar duct, sac, and terminal bronchioles with emphysematous changes in most of the alveoli in addition to peribronchiolitis, perivasculitis, inflammatory cells infiltration and interstitial fibrosis.
Scarce attachment of avian influenza viruses to bronchioles and alveoli of harbor seals is consistent with low pathogenicity of these viruses for harbor seals during experimental infection (4-6).
Inhaled bronchodilator and corticosteroid medications directly ease the patient's bronchiole resistance to air flow by widening the diameter of the airways and diminishing inflammation, thus increasing FEV1, PIF, and PEFR (Skrepnek & Skrepnek, 2004).
The main functions of the fetal lung are to produce amniotic fluid and a material called surfactant that reduces the surface tension of the fluids that line the bronchioles and alveoli.
Using n3D technology, however, researchers were able to magnetically levitate bronchiole tissue to the air-liquid interface so that airborne toxins can be exposed to the epithelial layer of the tissue, just as would occur in human lungs.
When the airways are reduced to a diameter of 1 mm or less, they are called bronchioles.

This is also a potent, highly selective leukotriene receptor blocker which exerts activity in the bronchiole.
When the bronchiole is only mildly affected, there is an increase in subepithelial fibrous tissue, which can be highlighted by a fibrous tissue stain such as Masson trichrome or Movat pentachrome (Figure 3, A and B).

Each "grape," or alveolus, shares with other alveoli an opening into a duct connecting it to the respiratory bronchiole.
A bronchiole is surrounded by a small rim of mononuclear cells that is confined to the submucosa of the airway B through D, Grade B2R.
The terminal membranous bronchiole is the final conducting airway with a complete fibromuscular wall.
