Chronic lung diseases are often accelerated and exacerbated by polymicrobial infections. An international study has identified two types of these so-called dysbioses in cystic fibrosis. They display distinct ecology and are also likely to respond ...
How do pathogens invade the lungs? Using human lung microtissues, a team has uncovered the strategy used by a dangerous pathogen. The bacterium targets specific lung cells and has developed a sophisticated strategy to break through the lungs' line ...
Researchers are developing a new therapeutic approach that uses nanoparticles for the treatment of skin and lung fibrosis, conditions that can result in severe damage to the body's ...
Researchers have demonstrated the benefits of lung cancer screening across socioeconomic groups. Evidence in the new study illustrates the value and importance of screening, especially for those who live in areas of economic ...

One of the molecules responsible for triggering the inflammation that causes allergic respiratory diseases, such as asthma and allergic rhinitis, has just been discovered. This molecule, from the ...

Researchers have made a breakthrough into how two chronic respiratory diseases in childhood affect the immune system, paving the way for better ...

A new study suggest that using CXCL9 and CXCL10-producing dendritic cells alongside immunotherapy can be a promising strategy to overcome treatment resistance and improve clinical outcomes for ...

By evaluating sound vibrations produced by the airflow induced within the lungs and bronchial tree during normal breathing as well as those produced by the larynx during vocalizations, doctors can ...

New research finds a direct communication path between the lungs and the brain which may change the way we treat respiratory infections and chronic conditions. The lungs are using the same sensors ...

Researchers have discovered a potential way to predict which patients with severe COVID-19 are likely to recover well and which are likely to suffer 'long-haul' lung problems. That finding ...

Researchers may have discovered a mechanical explanation for instability observed in the lungs in cases of acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), particularly in the aftermath of respiratory ...

Scientists trained a machine-learning algorithm to predict accurately brain metastasis using biopsy samples from early-stage non-small cell lung cancer patients. It was also highly accurate in ...

Study in mice reveals novel gasping reflex triggered by cells in the lungs when the airway is ...

Researchers built a new atlas of lung cells, uncovering new cellular pathways and precursors in the development of lung adenocarcinoma, the most common type of lung cancer. These findings open the ...

Biomedical engineers have developed a technique that uses inhalation of exosomes, or nanobubbles, to directly deliver IL-12 mRNA to the lungs of ...

Scientists have long thought of the fluid-filled sac around our lungs merely as a cushion from external damage. Turns out, it also houses potent virus-eating cells that rush into the lungs during flu ...

New research finds that premature lungs become stiffer than adult lungs under stress. This disrupts the function of transporters that are important for removing water from the lungs after ...

Lung tumors called adenocarcinomas sometimes respond to initially effective treatments by transforming into a much more aggressive small cell lung cancer (SCLC) that spreads rapidly and has few ...

Scientists discovered a novel self-perpetuating cancer mechanism in the lung microenvironment, wherein EGFR-driven lung adenocarcinoma cells exploit lung-resident macrophages -- remodeling them to ...

Bacteria in the mouth may play a role in survival from idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), finds a new ...

An initial trial suggests that a new drug, originally developed for use with cancer patients, could improve the survival of patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). The patients in ...

Respiratory diseases like influenza and COVID-19 drive inflammatory responses that can cause long-term damage to the lungs and can be difficult to treat. Now, by using techniques that deliver mRNA ...

A new study shows how periodontitis, an oral disease, activates immune cells associated with aggravated progression of ...

Researchers uncovered a fundamental mechanism that controls the body's response to limited oxygen and regulates blood vessel disease of the ...
