Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF)
A team of researchers have reversed lung fibrosis in a mouse model, highlighting a new therapeutic target for pulmonary fibrosis.
Study suggests reducing the expression of the methyl-CpG-binding domain 2 (MBD2) protein on macrophages could be a viable therapeutic strategy for lung fibrosis.
Researchers recently conducted a genome-wide association study (GWAS) to identify factors that increase susceptibility to the incurable lung condition idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF). Here, Dr Richard Allen shares some of the study’s key findings.
An innovation using artificial intelligence to analyse developing lung cell developments in vitro revealed what promotes them to develop and allowed researchers to create better quality lung tissue models.
A genetic mutation that causes idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis has been identified and could lead to a new therapeutic approach to treating the disease.
A new study shows that using therapeutic antibodies to block the interleukin-11 protein can reverse idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis.
Researchers in Spain have developed a method of gene therapy that cures pulmonary fibrosis in mice by lengthening telomeres – the protective protein sections at the end of chromosomes.
A study has identified a molecular pathway that appears to be critical to the development of fibrosis...
Radiation therapy is part of the treatment regimen for about two thirds of cancer patients today. Radiotherapy is well tolerated in most cases, but it can also lead to damage in healthy tissues that are also irradiated. One debilitating side effect is radiation-induced fibrosis. Fibrosis is a process of scarring…
