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

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...

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, ...

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...

Making old lungs look young again

(Ohio State University) New research shows that the lungs become more inflammatory with age and that ibuprofen can lower that inflammation. Immune cells from old mouse lungs fought tuberculosis bacter...

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...

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...

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...
