Copper

Description

Description of Copper with associated disease summary

Copper is one of the metal indicators of interstitial lung diseases including idiopathic interstitial pneumonia (IIPs) and sarcoidosis. Lower levels of copper were detected in interstitial lung diseases patients. The depletion of copper involved in the oxidant/anti-oxidant balance may be linked to the oxidative stress and chronic inflammation (J Breath Res. (2009)) Description of disease(s) related to Copper:

Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis

One study using inductive coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) to detect copper and shows that the EBC copper level in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis patients are significantly lower than the healthy controls (p < 0.05 versus controls) (J Breath Res. (2009)) .

Non-specific interstitial pneumonia

One study using inductive coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) to detect copper and shows that the EBC copper level in non-specific interstitial pneumonia patients are lower than the healthy controls (p < 0.05 versus controls) (J Breath Res. (2009)) .

Sarcoidosis

One study using inductive coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) to detect copper and shows that the EBC copper level in sarcoidosis patients are lower than the healthy controls (p < 0.05 versus controls) (J Breath Res. (2009)) .

Sarcoidosis MeSH: Sarcoidosis
An idiopathic systemic inflammatory granulomatous disorder comprised of epithelioid and multinucleated giant cells with little necrosis. It usually invades the lungs with fibrosis and may also involve lymph nodes, skin, liver, spleen, eyes, phalangeal bones, and parotid glands. Year introduced: PSEUDOTUBERCULOSIS use SARCOIDOSIS 1963-1992

Non Specific Interstitial Pneumonia MeSH: Lung Diseases, Interstitial
A diverse group of lung diseases that affect the lung parenchyma. They are characterized by an initial inflammation of PULMONARY ALVEOLI that extends to the interstitium and beyond leading to diffuse PULMONARY FIBROSIS. Interstitial lung diseases are classified by their etiology (known or unknown causes), and radiological-pathological features. Year introduced: 1994
Link to MeSH Database: D017563
1
Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis MeSH: Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis
A common interstitial lung disease of unknown etiology, usually occurring between 50-70 years of age. Clinically, it is characterized by an insidious onset of breathlessness with exertion and a nonproductive cough, leading to progressive DYSPNEA. Pathological features show scant interstitial inflammation, patchy collagen fibrosis, prominent fibroblast proliferation foci, and microscopic honeycomb change. Year introduced: 2009
