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...

Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) is a carcinomatous cancer occurring in many different organs, including the skin, lips, mouth, esophagus, urinary bladder, prostate, lungs, vagina, and cervix. It is a ...

Systemic Lupus Erythematosus SLE

Lupus is an autoimmune disease characterized by acute and chronic inflammation of various tissues of the body. Because the antibodies and accompanying cells of inflammation can affect tissues anywhe...

Preserving donor lungs longer makes transplant more elective than emergency surgery

(University Health Network) A new method which doubles the usual time donor lungs can remain outside the body can benefit patients, staff and allow retrieval of donor lungs across greater geographical...

New Technique Keeps Donor Lungs Viable Longer: Study

FRIDAY, Nov. 18, 2016 -- A technique that allows lungs destined for transplants to be preserved longer works well, a new Canadian study finds. The strategy, called ex-vivo lung perfusion (EVLP), allow...

TB can persist in lungs despite treatment, researchers find

It has been known that the microbe that causes TB, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, can persist in the lungs even after patient tissue samples test negative for the bacteria. In new research, scientists ha...

JMU scientists crystallize new inhibitory antibodies targeting sclerostin

Osteoporosis particularly affects elderly women: the bone's structure weakens and the risk of suffering fractures rises.

NIH-funded researchers find signs TB can persist in lungs despite treatment

(NIH/National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases) It has been known that the microbe that causes TB, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, can persist in the lungs even after patient tissue samples te...

Scientists detect gut bacteria in deepest reaches of failing lungs

No one knows for sure how they got there. But the discovery that bacteria that normally live in the gut can be detected in the lungs of critically ill people and animals could mean a lot for intensive...

Lab-grown mini lungs successfully transplanted into mice

Scientists can now grow 3-D models of lungs from stem cells, creating new ways to study respiratory diseases, report scientists.

TB lesions may remain in lungs long after completion of treatment

Patients with active tuberculosis of the lungs, the infectious form of the disease known as pulmonary tuberculosis (TB), are typically treated with several medications for a period of six months.

Donation After Circulatory Death Lungs Transplantable Up to Six Hours After Ex Vivo Lung Perfusion.

Despite the critical need for donor lungs, logistic and geographic barriers hinder lung utilization. We hypothesized that lungs donated after circulatory death subjected to 6 hours of cold preservatio...

How can we improve the quality of transplantable lungs?

Optimization of lungs for organ donation is becoming increasingly important as donation rates stagnate despite growing waiting lists. Improving procurement and utilization of donated lungs has the abi...

Giving new life to old lungs: methods to produce and assess whole human paediatric bioengineered lungs.

We report, for the first time, the development of an organ culture system and protocols to support recellularization of whole acellular (AC) human paediatric lung scaffolds. The protocol for paediatri...

Total deposition of ultrafine particles in the lungs of healthy men and women: experimental and theoretical results.

Inhaled ultrafine particles (UFP) may induce greater adverse respiratory effects than larger particles occurring in the ambient atmosphere. Due to this potential of UFP to act as triggers for diverse ...

Transplantation after ex vivo lung perfusion: A midterm follow-up.

A large proportion of donor lungs are discarded due to known or presumed organ dysfunction. Ex vivo lung perfusion (EVLP) has proven its value as a tool for discrimination between reversible and irrev...
