A vasculature niche orchestrates stromal cell phenotype through PDGF signaling: Importance in human fibrotic disease.

Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 2022 03 23;119(13):e2120336119. Epub 2022 Mar 23.

The Kennedy Institute of Rheumatology, Nuffield Department of Orthopaedics, Rheumatology and Musculoskeletal Sciences, University of Oxford, Oxford OX3 7FY, United Kingdom.

SignificanceTissue fibrotic diseases, for example of the liver and lung, represent a huge unmet medical need. In this study, using single-cell RNA sequencing, cytometry by time of flight (CyTOF), tissue imaging, and functional assays, we identify a complex vascular niche in Dupuytren's disease (DD), a common localized fibrotic condition of the palm, where early-disease-stage tissue can be accessed readily. We uncover a population of myofibroblast precursors within the pericyte compartment and demonstrate that the endothelium instructs the differentiation of functionally distinct stromal cells, thereby orchestrating discrete microenvironments in the fibrotic milieu.

Pirfenidone as a potential antifibrotic injectable for Dupuytren's disease.

Pharm Dev Technol 2022 Feb 20;27(2):242-250. Epub 2022 Feb 20.

James L. Winkle College of Pharmacy, University of Cincinnati, Cincinnati, OH, USA.

Dupuytren's disease is a progressive fibrotic condition of the hand that causes contracture of fingers in later stages. Our previous studies suggest that the transformation of fibroblasts to myofibroblasts induced by transforming growth factor-beta can be inhibited by the addition of the antifibrotic drug, pirfenidone (PFD). We hypothesize that the local delivery of PFD directly to nodules can potentially prevent the progression to cords and, furthermore, that injection of PFD after the resection of cords can limit the recurrence of the disease.
