How the power of mathematics can help assess lung function

Added: 19.08.2019 19:20 | 0 views | 0 comments

Researchers have developed a new computational way of analyzing X-ray images of lungs, which could herald a breakthrough in the diagnosis and assessment of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and other lung diseases.

Occupational exposures linked with increased risk of COPD

Added: 19.08.2019 19:20 | 0 views | 0 comments

A study with more than 3,300 participants in 12 countries has established a relationship between occupational exposure to biological dusts, gases, fumes and pesticides and COPD. The researchers did a follow-up of the participants 20 years after the first assessment.

Formidable duo: Protective effect of CD9 and CD81 in COPD and accelerated aging

Added: 19.08.2019 19:20 | 0 views | 0 comments

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a disease of accelerated lung aging, but the mechanism remains unclear. Researchers studied the aging-like phenotype and its underlying mechanisms in a COPD mouse model. Double deletion of tetraspanins CD9 and CD81 in epithelial cells downregulated expression of the protein SIRT. As SIRT1 is a key molecule that protects against various lifestyle-related diseases and aging, these tetraspanins may serve as novel therapeutic targets for COPD and aging.

New-found stem cell helps regenerate lung tissue after acute injury

Added: 19.08.2019 19:20 | 0 views | 0 comments

Researchers have identified a lung stem cell that repairs the organ's gas exchange compartment. They isolated and characterized these progenitor cells from mouse and human lungs and demonstrated they are essential to repairing lung tissue damaged by severe influenza and other respiratory ailments.

New study offers insights on genetic indicators of COPD risk

Added: 19.08.2019 19:20 | 0 views | 0 comments

Researchers have discovered that genetic variations in the anatomy of the lungs could serve as indicators to help identify people who have low, but stable, lung function early in life, and those who are particularly at risk for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) because of a smoke-induced decline in lung function.

Defect in zinc supply mechanism affects pathology of intractable pulmonary diseases

Added: 19.08.2019 19:20 | 0 views | 0 comments

Researchers revealed that abnormal delivery of zinc to lung cells contributes to obstructive pulmonary diseases. They further showed that mRNA splicing abnormalities are involved in the detailed mechanism. So far, the importance of zinc in the lung has only been understood from a nutritional aspect. This discovery is thought to be the first to clarify zinc's effects on the regulation of mRNA ligation (splicing), and its involvement in the onset of pulmonary diseases.

How the lungs of premature babies can undergo damage

Added: 19.08.2019 19:20 | 0 views | 0 comments

Premature babies that need ventilation to support their breathing often suffer from a condition known as bronchopulmonary dysplasia. Researchers have now discovered a molecular mechanism that plays a key role in the development of the disease.

Chronic bronchitis: New insights could lead to first diagnostic test, better treatments

Added: 19.08.2019 19:20 | 0 views | 0 comments

Researchers describe how the concentration of mucins -- the proteins that make mucus thick -- is abnormally high in chronic bronchitis and that high mucin concentrations are associated with disease severity in people with chronic bronchitis. This finding could become the first-ever objective marker of chronic bronchitis and lead to the creation of diagnostic and prognostic tools.
