Novel approach in primary care setting may help identify patients with COPD

Added: 06.10.2017 19:45 | 0 views | 0 comments


With five simple questions and an inexpensive peak expiratory flow (PEF) meter, primary care clinicians may be able to diagnose many more patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or COPD, according to new research. Follow-up studies will help establish if earlier identification and treatment of people with COPD improves quality of life and health outcomes.

Airway-on-a-chip could lead to new treatments for cigarette smoke-induced lung injury

Added: 06.10.2017 19:45 | 1 views | 0 comments


Researchers have developed an airway-on-a-chip that supports living small-airway-lining cells from normal or diseased human lungs and an instrument that "breathes" cigarette smoke in and out over these chips. Using this technology, researchers recreated and analyzed the effects of smoking at the molecular, cellular, and tissue level to understand the damage occurring in normal lung and in engineered lung tissues from patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), the third leading cause of death in the US.

Stem cells grown into 3-D lung-in-a-dish

Added: 06.10.2017 19:45 | 1 views | 0 comments


By coating tiny gel beads with lung-derived stem cells and then allowing them to self-assemble into the shapes of the air sacs found in human lungs, researchers have succeeded in creating three-dimensional lung "organoids." The laboratory-grown lung-like tissue can be used to study diseases including idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, which has traditionally been difficult to study using conventional methods.
