New study offers insights on genetic indicators of COPD risk

Researchers have discovered that genetic variations in the anatomy of the lungs could serve as indicators to help identify people who have low, but stable, lung function early in life, and those who are particularly at risk for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) because of a smoke-induced decline in lung function.

Defect in zinc supply mechanism affects pathology of intractable pulmonary diseases

Added: 28.12.2017 10:09 | 2 views | 0 comments

#zrodlo

Researchers revealed that abnormal delivery of zinc to lung cells contributes to obstructive pulmonary diseases. They further showed that mRNA splicing abnormalities are involved in the detailed mechanism. So far, the importance of zinc in the lung has only been understood from a nutritional aspect. This discovery is thought to be the first to clarify zinc's effects on the regulation of mRNA ligation (splicing), and its involvement in the onset of pulmonary diseases.

Diet rich in apples and tomatoes may help repair lungs of ex-smokers, study suggests

The natural decline in lung function over a 10-year period was slower among former smokers with a diet high in tomatoes and fruits, especially apples, suggesting certain components in these foods might help restore lung damage caused by smoking.

ICU care for COPD, heart failure and heart attack may not be better

Added: 13.12.2017 15:25 | 8 views | 0 comments


Does a stay in the intensive care unit give patients a better chance of surviving a chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or heart failure flare-up or even a heart attack, compared with care in another type of hospital unit? Unless a patient is clearly critically ill, the answer may be no, according to researchers who analyzed more than 1.5 million Medicare records.

How the lungs of premature babies can undergo damage

Increased arterial stiffness linked to restrictive spirometry pattern and reduced forced vital capacity

Added: 27.09.2017 12:35 | 7 views | 0 comments


Increased arterial stiffness is a known predictor of cardiovascular diseases in different populations, including healthy subjects and patients with hypertension, diabetes, or renal disease. A new study examining arterial stiffness in a large population determined that both restrictive spirometry pattern and reduced forced vital capacity (FVC) were associated with a higher risk of arterial stiffness not only in men but also in women. The investigators found that arterial stiffness increased fourfold when FVC decreased.

Chronic bronchitis: New insights could lead to first diagnostic test, better treatments

Added: 08.09.2017 14:27 | 9 views | 0 comments


Researchers describe how the concentration of mucins -- the proteins that make mucus thick -- is abnormally high in chronic bronchitis and that high mucin concentrations are associated with disease severity in people with chronic bronchitis. This finding could become the first-ever objective marker of chronic bronchitis and lead to the creation of diagnostic and prognostic tools.
