Univ.-Prof. Dr.med.univ. Horst Olschewski

Horst OLSCHEWSKI is Chairman of the Division of Pulmonology at the MUG with a strong background in the basic mechanisms of pulmonary vascular, bronchial obstructive and oncologic diseases. He is particularly interested in the role of inflammation in the respective pathology of these diseases. Currently his group is studying the mechanisms of pulmonary vascular remodeling that are associated with airway inflammation, leading to increased pulmonary arterial pressure, enhanced right-ventricular after-load, and clinically relevant hypoxemia. In recent years he characterized the clinical usefulness - and the related pharmacological mechanisms - of targeting the endothelin system, phosphodiesterases and prostanoid receptors in the management of pulmonary Hypertension.
