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.
