The main role of the lungs is to transfer life-giving oxygen into our blood supply. However, as we shall learn, there is even more to the lungs than this vital task.
Premature babies have a hard time getting the oxygen they need as their lungs are not sufficiently developed. Today you can only use X-rays to see how much air babies' lungs contain, but, according to...
Smoking mothers, respiratory infections and the date you were born contribute to determine how fast your lungs are aging.
(Reuters Health) - Infants exposed to higher levels of vehicular air pollution more often have problems later on in the small airways near the edges of their lungs, according to a new study.
For the first time, researchers have succeeded in producing 3D images showing oxygen and CO2 transport in the lungs. The new method provides hope for better treatment of COPD and lung cancer.
Implanting tiny coils in the lungs of patients with severe emphysema improves exercise capacity at six months, although the short term costs of treatment are high, researchers have reported in...
A study suggests the surface properties of the glass vessels in which pharmaceutical ingredients are prepared has an effect on how they crystallize.
(1)H-NMR metabolomics was used to investigate the changes of metabolites in the lungs of mice with and without being exposed to a controlled amount of cigarette smoke. It was found that the concentrat...
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...
Use of decellularized pig lung scaffolds recellularized with human lung cells in xenogeneic transplantation is potentially limited by expression of immunogenic galactosylated cell surface glycoprotein...
Our study had two objectives. First, we separately evaluated observed-to-expected MR fetal lung volume (FLV) of lungs ipsilateral and contralateral to a congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH). Second, ...
It has been shown that mechanical ventilation by itself can cause lung injury and affect outcomes. Ventilator-induced lung injury is associated with high tidal volumes in lungs afflicted with ARDS. Ho...
