Why is asthma worse in black patients?

Added: 21.02.2018 22:40 | 0 views | 0 comments

#zrodlo

African Americans may be less responsive to asthma treatment and more likely to die from the condition, in part, because they have a unique type of airway inflammation, according to a study. The study is one of the largest and most diverse trials conducted in the U.S. on race and asthma, with 26 percent of the patients self-identifying as African American. Researchers found that black patients were more likely to exhibit eosinophilic airway inflammation than whites, despite taking comparable doses of asthma medication, such as inhaled corticosteroids.

Sugar element of keratan sulfate halts the progress of emphysema

#zrodlo

Using a mouse model, scientists have identified a sugar molecule that reduced the inflammatory response and progress of emphysema, a common component of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). This discovery could lead to the development of drugs based on glycans -- biological sugar molecules -- for the treatment of diseases such as COPD, which is the fourth leading cause of death worldwide.

Copd: What causes the lungs to lose their ability to heal?

In chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), the patients' lungs lose their ability to repair damages on their own. Scientists now have a new idea as to why this might be so.They blame the molecule Wnt5a for this problem.

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

#zrodlo

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: 21.02.2018 22:40 | 0 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.

Long-term supplemental oxygen treatment results in little or no change in time to death, time to first hospitalizations or significant quality of life improvements for those with moderately low blood oxygen levels, concludes a newly published study of people with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

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.
