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...

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...

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...

Iguanas evolved one-way lungs surprisingly like those of birds, study finds

Whether birds are breathing in or out, air flows in a one-directional loop through their lungs. This pattern was unexpected and for decades, biologists assumed it was unique to birds, a special adapta...

Cleaner Air Tied to Healthier Lungs in Kids

Cleaner Air Tied to Healthier Lungs in KidsFalling air pollution levels in Southern California were associated with improvements in children’s lung function during a critical period of growth and d...

Researchers identify new approach to diagnose blood clots in lungs of patients over 50

(Intermountain Medical Center) New research identifies a new 'sliding scale' model used to rule out potentially deadly blood clots in the lungs, known as pulmonary embolisms, that is more accurate tha...

Healthier lungs in California kids after pollution controls

(Reuters Health) - Doctors have long predicted that less air pollution will produce healthier lungs. Now a first-of-its-kind study of 2,120 children in southern California has documented dramatically ...

‘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 ...

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...
