Vitamin A receptor may help protect lungs from smoking, viral infections

It's no surprise that smoking is bad for the lungs. But only 10%-20% of long-term smokers will develop serious conditions that affect breathing, such as emphysema and chronic obstructive pulmonary dis...

Scientists grow 'mini-lungs' to aid study of cystic fibrosis

'Mini-lungs' have been created by researchers using stem cells derived from skin cells of patients with cystic fibrosis, and have shown that these can be used to test potential new drugs for this debi...

'Mini-lungs' aid the study of cystic fibrosis

Scientists at the University of Cambridge have successfully created 'mini-lungs' using stem cells derived from skin cells of patients with cystic fibrosis, and have shown that these can be used to tes...

Gout linked to lower chances of developing Alzheimer's disease

Gout appears to have a protective effect for the brain, possibly thanks to uric acid, the chemical in a person's blood that can crystallize, leading to gout, said a team of researchers from north Amer...

Morphological variations of the lungs: a study conducted on Indian cadavers.

Awareness of anatomical variations in lungs is essential during segmental or lobar resections of lungs. We studied the variations of fissures, lobes and hilar structures in 65 right and 73 left isolat...

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...

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...
