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...

Scientists Grow First Functioning Human Lungs

Lungs are a notoriously delicate organ. That makes useable donor lungs hard to come by---in 2010, just 1,800 lung transplants took place in the United States. However, researchers are getting closer t...

'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...

Bacteria in Lungs Make COPD Patients Sicker

Patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are sicker and experience more respiratory symptoms when their lungs are colonized by bacteria, new research shows. Conventional wisdom has...

Old Donkey Lungs Offer Clues to Human Disease

(MedPage Today) -- No, it's not an insult -- aged asses are a pretty good stand-in for people when it comes to the lungs and the understanding of pulmonary fibrosis, Scottish researchers argued.

Air Space: Old Donkey Lungs Offer Clues to Human Disease

(MedPage Today) -- No, it's not an insult -- aged asses are a pretty good stand-in for people when it comes to the lungs and the understanding of pulmonary fibrosis, Scottish researchers argued.

Doctors are missing chances to diagnose COPD early in up to 85% of cases

A UK-based study published in The Lancet Respiratory Medicine journal finds that opportunities are being missed to diagnose chronic obstructive pulmonary disease in up to 85% of people.Chronic obstruc...

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...

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...

Crystal Clear: The ability to crystallize proteins in space is accelerating drug development on Earth.

Structure-based drug design is on the front line of promising advancements in disease treatment and personalized medicine. However, the difficulties of characterizing protein structures hamper these d...

CEP290 and the Primary Cilium.

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...

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...

Surgical approach for patients with unusually located hydatid cyst.

Hydatid cyst is a parasitic disease caused by Echinococcus granulosus whose people is the intermediate host. Although this parasite can settle in any part of the human body, it is frequently seen in l...

Ex Vivo Lung Perfusion Allows Successful Transplantation of Donor Lungs From Hanging Victims.

Donor lungs acquired from victims of asphyxiation by hanging are not routinely used for lung transplantation because of the associated lung injury. Ex vivo lung perfusion (EVLP) is a technique to eva...
