It's not all-right: Problems when your body doesn't recognize your own left-handed RNA

Added: 26.10.2021 18:18 | 6 views | 0 comments

By generating a specific mutation in lab mice, researchers determined that a protein domain in an enzyme called adenosine deaminase 1 p150 is necessary for binding and editing certain RNA molecules. Mutant mice showed inhibited growth after birth, as well as abnormally developed organs. Interestingly, their brains showed characteristics similar to encephalopathy seen in humans suffering from Aicardi-Goutières syndrome (AGS), a genetic inflammatory disorder. This work could help revolutionize treatment methods for AGS.

Cell death discovery could lead to new treatment for COPD

Added: 26.10.2021 17:59 | 3 views | 0 comments

Inhibiting necroptosis, a form of cell death, could yield a new treatment approach for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), an inflammatory lung condition also known as emphysema, new research shows. The study revealed elevated levels of necroptosis in patients with COPD. By inhibiting necroptosis activity in the lung tissue of COPD patients the researchers found a significant reduction in chronic airway inflammation and lung damage.

New strategy blocks chronic lung disease in mice

Added: 26.10.2021 17:59 | 2 views | 0 comments

A new study has uncovered a previously unknown role for exosomes in inflammatory respiratory diseases. The study has implications for finding new therapies. Exosomes are tiny compartments released from cells that carry different types of cargo, including inflammatory chemicals called cytokines that can drive lung disease.

Crimped or straight? Lung fiber shape influences elasticity

Added: 26.10.2021 17:59 | 2 views | 0 comments

Stiff collagen and stretchy elastin fibers packed together in rows allow the respiratory system to stretch and snap back into shape. Scientists previously thought these fibers govern the mechanics of the airways due to their composition. New research has instead observed that differences in the shape and form of tissue fibers influence respiratory elasticity. These findings will help scientists better understand lung diseases, from chronic diseases like COPD to the lung ailment associated with vaping.

Benralizumab not effective reducing exacerbations in moderate to very severe COPD

Added: 26.10.2021 17:59 | 3 views | 0 comments

New research shows that the asthma drug benralizumab failed to decrease annual COPD exacerbation rates for patients with moderate to very severe COPD, a history of frequent moderate and/or severe exacerbations, and eosinophilic inflammation.

Activated PMN exosomes are pathogenic entities that cause destruction in the COPD lung

Added: 26.10.2021 17:59 | 2 views | 0 comments

Researchers have found a novel, pathogenic entity that is a fundamental link between chronic inflammation and tissue destruction in lungs of patients with COPD. These exosomes from activated neutrophils caused COPD damage when they were instilled into the lungs of healthy mice. Remarkably, neutrophil exosomes from the lung fluids of human patients with COPD and neonates with bronchopulmonary dysplasia also caused COPD lung damage when put into the lungs of healthy mice.
