Cells converted to functional lung cells

“This break-through, published in the journal, Nature Biotechnology, could significantly advance the modelling of lung disease, drug testing, studying lung development, and generating lung tissue for transplantation.

Study leader Hans-Willem Snoeck said, “Now, we are finally able to make lung and airway cells. This is important because lung transplants have a particularly poor prognosis. Although any clinical application is still many years away, we can begin thinking about making autologous lung transplants—that is, transplants that use a patient’s own skin cells to generate functional lung tissue.””

“Lung diseases are one of the world’s biggest health concerns, causing about one sixth of all deaths worldwide.

The impact of lung diseases remains as large today as it was at the turn of the century and is likely to remain so for several decades.

Lung diseases cause disability and premature death. They have a huge cost related to primary care, hospital care and treatments, as well as the loss of productivity of those who cannot work and people who die early because of their condition.”

I like canoeing, photographing, friends, movies, food, humor, and going on trips. I dislike rudeness, dishonesty, violence, nastyness, and people not caring for others. I do not drink much, I do not smoke and I do not do drugs. I love friends who are kind to me and stick with me. If you want to give me a gift, the best gift is to stop smoking and stop using fragranced products. Then you give me health and that dear friend, is the best gift a person can get. It is a gift of love. I got asthma and I am hearing disabled.
