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...

Cause of donor death should not automatically exclude lungs from transplant consideration

Patients receiving lungs from donors whose cause of death was asphyxiation or drowning have similar outcomes and long-term survival as patients receiving lungs from traditional donors, according to a ...

Non-traditional donor lungs appear safe for transplant

(Elsevier) Patients receiving lungs from donors whose cause of death was asphyxiation or drowning have similar outcomes and long-term survival as patients receiving lungs from traditional donors, acco...

Making old lungs look young again, with ibuprofen

The lungs become more inflammatory with age, researchers say, and add that ibuprofen can lower that inflammation. Immune cells from old mouse lungs fought tuberculosis bacteria as effectively as cells...

Artificial organs: Honey, I shrunk the lungs

Miniature versions of hearts, lungs and other organs are heralding a bright future for drug research and discovery.

Evolution: Lungs began with many chambers

The lungs of ancestral, land-based vertebrates may have had multiple chambers rather than just one, as was believed.Markus Lambertz at the University of Bonn in Germany and his colleagues studied lung...

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 ...

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...

Delivery strategies for sustained drug release in the lungs.

Drug delivery to the lungs by inhalation offers a targeted drug therapy for respiratory diseases. However, the therapeutic efficacy of inhaled drugs is limited by their rapid clearance in the lungs. C...

"Hanging donors": are we still skeptical about the lungs?

Suicidal hanging may cause compression of the neck blood vessels and the airway leading, to hypoxic brain damage caused by cerebral ischemia and respiratory distress. Hanging engenders global tissue h...
