Spirometry Test

The gold standard in lung testing In the same way that blood pressure measurements provide a simple yet effective screening method for cardiovascular disease, spirometry tests can help to unmask t...

Huntington's Disease

Huntington's disease is a hereditary disease caused by a defect in a single gene on Chromosome 4 that is inherited in an autosomal dominant fashion. The defect causes a part of DNA, called a CAG...

Gaucher's disease

'Humanised' lungs for transplant patients to be grown in pigs

The shortage of transplantable lungs available for people with end-stage lung disease is being addressed in a new project led by genome scientist Dr Craig Venter...

How beryllium causes deadly lung disease

Using exquisitely detailed maps of molecular shapes and the electrical charges surrounding them, researchers have discovered how the metal beryllium triggers a deadly immune response in the lungs. The...

Making Old Lungs Look New Again

New research shows that the lungs become more inflammatory with age and that ibuprofen can lower that inflammation.  Read more about Making Old Lungs Look New AgainComments

Two FDA drug approvals for idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF)

By: Badrul A. Chowdhury, M.D., Ph.D. Pulmonary fibrosis is a disease in which tissue deep inside the lungs becomes thick, stiff, and scarred, decreasing the lungs’ ability to expand to take in air, ...

Stem cell therapy may help recondition lungs previously rejected for transplant

Stem cells therapy has been used to “recondition” abnormally functioning donor lungs that were deemed unusable for transplantion. This study could have implications for increasing the supply of su...

Study suggests cystic fibrosis is two diseases, one doesn't affect lungs

Cystic fibrosis (CF) could be considered two diseases, one that affects multiple organs including the lungs, and one that doesn't affect the lungs at all, according to a multicenter team led by resear...

The protein CEP290 has recently emerged as a major player in the biology of the cilium and as a causative protein in a number of human syndromic diseases, most of which are associated with the devasta...

A method for avoiding overlap of left and right lungs in shape model guided segmentation of lungs in CT volumes.

The automated correct segmentation of left and right lungs is a nontrivial problem, because the tissue layer between both lungs can be quite thin. In the case of lung segmentation with left and right ...

In search of the elusive lipofibroblast, in human lungs.

Although the pulmonary interstitial lipofibroblast (LF) has been widely recognized in rat and mouse lungs, their presence in human lungs remains controversial. In this issue of the Journal (xxx-xxx) T...

Inhomogeneity of local stiffness in the extracellular matrix scaffold of fibrotic mouse lungs.

Lung disease models are useful to study how cell engraftment, proliferation and differentiation are modulated in lung bioengineering. The aim of this work was to characterize the local stiffness of de...
