In this presentation from the 4th International Neonatal and Childhood Pulmonary Vascular Disease Conference, Stephen Archer, MD describes the role for DC68(+) macrophages in the etiology of hepatopulmonary syndrome and how macrophage depletion can cause a reversal. This is especially relevant to pulmonary hypertension as this can transition to portopulmonary hypertension following liver transplantation.
