Significant Progress in Small-Cell Lung Cancer Research

Small-cell lung cancer is a particularly aggressive type of tumor with a consistently high mortality rate. In recent years, the research of scientists has significantly contributed to a better understanding and new therapeutic approaches in this malignant ...

Single-Cell Atlas of the Whole Human Lung

The largest and most comprehensive cell map of the human lung has been completed. The Human Lung Cell Atlas reveals the great diversity of cell types in the lung and shows key differences between health and disease. Researchers identified rare cell types and found common cell states between lung ...

Study Shows Key Role for Human T Cells in the Control of Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) Infection

A new study has shown that human T cells have an important role to play in controlling ...

New Nanoparticles Can Perform Gene-Editing in the Lungs

A new type of nanoparticle can be administered to the lungs, where it can deliver messenger RNA encoding useful proteins. Researchers hope to use them to develop new treatments for cystic fibrosis and other lung ...

Actinidia Arguta (Sarunashi) Juice Inhibits Lung Cancer in Mice, Study Finds

A research team has shown that Sarunashi juice and its constituting component isoquercetin help prevent and reduce lung cancer in laboratory ...

Alveolar Macrophages Help CD8+ T Cells Go (Anti-)viral

研究员s have found that antigen-specific killer T cells (CD8+ T cells) rapidly expand in the lungs when primed by antigen-presenting lung-resident alveolar macrophages (AMs). This interaction ...

New Bacterial Therapy Approach to Treat Lung Cancer

研究员s report that they have developed a new experimental pipeline to combine bacterial therapy with current cancer drugs. Their study, which explores resistance to bacterial therapy at the ...


Cystic Fibrosis Drug Could Help Treat Pneumonia

Pathogens such as SARS-CoV-2 and pneumococcus can cause severe pneumonia. If the airways then fill with fluid, the patient risks developing acute respiratory distress syndrome. Researchers have now ...

Fewer Infectious Particles from Children's Lungs

Children exhale significantly fewer potentially infectious particles than adults -- at least this is true for the small respiratory droplets that are predominantly produced in the ...

Spatial Lung Cell Atlas Offers Insights Into Disease and Immune Function

研究员s have genetically profiled nearly 200,000 cells from lungs, mapping their precise locations in tissue to discover an unexpected new immune niche in our ...

New X-Ray Technology Can Improve COVID-19 Diagnosis, Study Shows

研究员s have produced dark-field X-ray images of patients infected with the corona virus. In contrast to conventional X-ray images, dark-field images visualize the microstructure of the lung ...

Household Air Cleaners Improve Heart Health Among Individuals With COPD, Researchers Find

A six-month study oncludes that the use of portable home air purifiers can improve some markers of cardiovascular health in people with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or ...

Study Reveals Extent of Residual Lung Damage After COVID-19 Hospitalization

In a new study, researchers sought to determine the percentage of COVID-19 patients discharged from the hospital who had a type of fibrotic lung damage, known as interstitial lung disease, that ...

Muscle Wasting Severity Linked to Type, Size and Location of Tumor in Mice

About 80% of people with cancer suffer from significant muscle wasting, or loss of muscle tissue, and 30% of these patients die from this condition. New research in mice finds that the severity of ...

Research Reveals How a Potentially Fatal COVID-19 Complication Damages Lung Tissue
