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...

Gaucher's disease

Gaucher's (go-SHAYZ) disease occurs when certain harmful fatty substances accumulate to excessive levels in your liver, spleen, lungs, bone marrow and, less commonly, brain. This accumulation of...

IFNα-Kinoid

Lupus : A major unmet medical need Lupus is a chronic and severe autoimmune disease in which the immune system produces antibodies to cells within the body leading to widespread inflammation and t...

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...

Bold Steps Toward Engineering New Lungs

According to the World Health Organization, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) currently affects more than 64 million people worldwide and is poised to become the third leading cause of mort...

Scientists grow 'mini-lungs' to 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...

Growing 3D 'Lungs-in-a-Dish'

Scientists have coaxed stem cells to grow the first three-dimensional mini lungs. Previous research has focused on deriving lung tissue from flat cell systems or growing cells onto scaffolds made fro...

Molecular mechanisms within fetal lungs initiate labor

SOURCE June 22, 2015 Summary:Researchers have identified two proteins in a fetus’ lungs responsible for initiating the labor process, providing potential new targets for preventing preterm birth...

Emphysema Is Common in Lungs of Cystic Fibrosis Lung Transplantation Patients: A Histopathological and Computed Tomography Study.

Lung disease in cystic fibrosis (CF) involves excessive inflammation, repetitive infections and development of bronchiectasis. Recently, literature on emphysema in CF has emerged, which might become a...

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...

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 ...

The Interrelationship between Disease and Ageing and the Implications for Longevity.

Ageing is generally viewed as a detrimental phenotype; with age comes increasing susceptibility to disease and frailty. Recent data also suggests that disease can result in an increase in ageing pheno...

Prioritising Infectious Disease Mapping.

Increasing volumes of data and computational capacity afford unprecedented opportunities to scale up infectious disease (ID) mapping for public health uses. Whilst a large number of IDs show global sp...
