Juan Sanchez-Esteban, MD, found that stretching lung cells to simulate fetal breathing stimulated the cells to produce surfactant, a protein that stabilizes lung tissue and permits the transition to air breathing at birth.

The study was presented at the annual meeting of the Pediatric Academic Societies in New Orleans, May 1-5.
