A single instillation of porcine pancreatic elastase (PPE) results in significant airspace enlargement on the 28th day after instillation, whereas cigarette smoke (CS) exposure requires 6 months to produce mild emphysema in rodents. Considering that there are differences in the pathogenesis of parenchymal destruction in these different experimental models, it is likely that there may be different patterns of extracellular matrix (ECM) remodeling. To evaluate ECM remodeling, C57BL/6 mice were submitted to either a nasal drop of PPE (PPE 28 Days) or exposed for 6 months to cigarette smoke (CS 6 months). Control groups received either an intranasal instillation of saline solution (Saline 28 Days) or remained without any smoke inhalation for six months (Control 6 months). We measured the mean linear intercept and the volume proportion of collagen type I, collagen type III, elastin and fibrillin. We used emission-scanning confocal microscopy to verify the fiber distribution. Both models induced increased mean linear intercept in relation to the respective controls, being larger in the elastase model in relation to the CS model. In the CS model, emphysema was associated with an increase in the volume proportion of fibrillin, whereas in the PPE model there was an increase in the parenchymal elastin content. In both models, there was an increase in collagen type III, which was higher in the CS-exposed mice. We concluded that ECM remodeling is different in the two most used experimental models of emphysema.
