NEBS AND PIEZO2: GUARDIANS OF THE RESPIRATORY GALAXY

In a recent Nature publication by Schappe,M (2024), researchers have revealed a fascinating aspect of respiratory physiology: the role of sensory neurons in guarding against airway obstruction and orchestrating...

Strategic Assessment of Lung Function

Lung function testing is often considered of prime importance in preclinical respiratory research. Being integrative, functional, and translational, the conclusions of such assessments typically impact the decision-making process. ...

Airway Hyperreactivity in Chlorine Exposed EIB Swimmers Model

Airway hyperresponsiveness (AHR) and exercise-induced bronchoconstriction (EIB) are conditions commonly affecting high-intensity athletes such as competitive swimmers.AHR and EIB in athletes have been well defined, however, studies focusing on...

Advantages of ALI Exposure – expoCube

Traditional submerged cell culture techniques have well-known limitations for aerosol exposure studies; for instance, the impact of exposure dilution within the media and the poor solubility/sedimentation of some exposure...

Tissue Baths in Respiratory Disease Models

Isolated tissue baths, also known as organ chambers, are tools that have been used in the discipline of pharmacology for over 150 years to evaluate tissues contractility and relaxation...

Pulmonary Vascular Remodeling

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a chronic inflammatory disorder of the lungs that has been a major public health problem, and has been the third leading cause of...

Oscillometry In the Drug Development Process

The current COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the need for a rapid development of therapeutic approaches to treat respiratory diseases. Yet, respiratory therapeutic candidates have until now displayed a...
