Chemotherapy or not?

Case Western Reserve University

Case Western Reserve University researchers and partners, including a collaborator at Cleveland Clinic, are pushing the boundaries of how “smart” diagnostic-imaging machines identify cancers—and uncovering clues outside the tumor to tell whether a patient will respond well to chemotherapy.

Biologists Design New Molecules To Help Stall Lung Cancer

University of Texas at Dallas

University of Texas at Dallas scientists have demonstrated that the growth rate of the majority of lung cancer cells relates directly to the availability of a crucial oxygen-metabolizing molecule called heme.

Video Plus Brochure Helps Patients Make Lung Cancer Scan Decision

American Thoracic Society (ATS)

A short video describing the potential benefits and risks of low-dose CT screening for lung cancer in addition to an informational brochure increased patients’ knowledge and reduced conflicted feelings about whether to undergo the scan more than the informational brochure alone, according to a randomized, controlled trial published online in the Annals of the American Thoracic Society.

Researchers Use Gene Editing with CRISPR to Treat Lethal Lung Diseases before Birth

Children's Hospital of Philadelphia

Researchers used CRISPR gene editing to thwart a lethal lung disease in an animal model in which a harmful mutation causes death within hours after birth. This proof-of-concept study showed that in utero editing could be a promising new approach for treating lung diseases before birth.

Researchers Use Gene Editing with CRISPR to Treat Lethal Lung Diseases Before Birth

Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania

Using CRISPR gene editing, a research team has thwarted a lethal lung disease, in an animal model, in which a harmful mutation causes death within hours after birth. This proof-of-concept study showed that in utero editing could be a promising new approach for treating lung diseases before birth.

Critical Errors in Inhaler Technique Common in Children with Asthma, Especially in Adolescents

Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago

In the first study to evaluate inhaler technique in children hospitalized for asthma – the group at highest risk for complications and death from asthma – researchers found that nearly half of participants demonstrated improper inhaler use, which means they routinely were not taking in the full dose of medication. Adolescents most commonly displayed critical errors in inhaler technique. They also often skipped using a spacer, which is a device that is recommended for use with an inhaler to help the right amount of asthma medication reach the lungs. Findings were published in the Journal of Hospital Medicine.
