Researchers at UCLA identify the pathways airway basal stem cells in the lungs need to switch between two distinct phases whilst regenerating lung tissue after an injury. The team states their results shed light on how aging can cause lung regeneration to go awry, possibly leading to lung cancer and other respiratory-based diseases.

How airway cells work together in regeneration and aging.

The growing worldwide epidemic of respiratory diseases can be attributed to simple everyday factors such as tobacco smoke, air pollution, occupational chemicals, or dust. These diseases involve the infection or … Continue Reading How airway cells work together in regeneration and aging.

Researchers identify molecular mechanisms within fetal lungs responsible for initiating labour.

Each year about one in every nine infants in the United States is born preterm (before 37 weeks), according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Premature birth can … Continue Reading Researchers identify molecular mechanisms within fetal lungs responsible for initiating labour.
