Acidic airways found in cystic fibrosis linked to bacterial infection

The airways of pigs closely resemble those of people meaning the animals develop lung disease in a very similar way to us.
The airways of pigs closely resemble those of people meaning the animals develop lung disease in a very similar way to us. New research shows that the mucus coating the airways of… http://www.understandinganimalresearch.org.uk/news/research-medical-benefits/acidic-airways-found-in-cystic-fibrosis-linked-to-bacterial-infection/

Stem cells repair lungs in sheep

Scientists have developed a new technique for delivering stem cells to diseased lungs for the treatment of emphysema.

Gene linked to lung cancer spread

Scientists have identified a genetic change that makes lung tumours more likely to spread to other parts of the body.

Artificial lung an alternative test-bed?

A functional artificial lung on a chip, which mimics the behavour of mouse lungs, has been created.
A functional artificial lung on a chip, which mimics the behavour of mouse lungs, has been created. The artificial lung mimics the boundary between the lung’s air sacs – where… http://www.understandinganimalresearch.org.uk/news/animal-welfare-alternatives/artificial-lung-an-alternative-test-bed/

Pigs are a new ideal model for cystic fibrosis

The cause of cystic fibrosis (CF) is becoming clearer after scientists used pigs as models instead of mice.

Enzymes are target for lung cancer treatment

‘Switching off' certain enzymes helps reduce tumours in mice, research has shown.

Gene therapy eases breathing problems

Delivering genes to specific cells which cause the lung disease emphysema could be key to alleviating breathing difficulties, research on mice suggests.

Missing link found in foetal heart failure

The inability to form a blood clot in a foetal blood vessel has been linked to heart failure in newborns, a study using mice has discovered.

Lung tumour treatment shows promise

Researchers have discovered a new medicine which is able to stop lung tumours from growing in mice, even eliminating them altogether in half of all cases.

White blood cells set the pace of wound repair

After more than 50 experiments in mice, scientists have mapped out how a set of white blood cells (lymphocytes) set the pace of recovery after serious lung injury.
