Researchers Grow Human Lung In A Lab

Researchers at the University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB) have successfully grown a human lung in a laboratory. This is the first time such an accomplishment has been achieved.According to a report published by CNN, the lungs were grown using tissue from the lungs of two children who had died from trauma, most likely a car accident. Although these lungs had been too damaged to use in a transplant, they still had some healthy tissue.

Voriconazole exposure and longer duration of voriconazole were found to be significantly associated with increased risk of squamous cell carcinoma. Regular dermatologic surveillance should be considered for the patients taking voriconazole, especially those at high risk of developing squamous cell carcinoma.

The diagnostic criteria for antibody-mediated rejection (AMR) after lung transplantation (LTx) includes immunohistochemistry (IHC) staining patterns for C4d but not C3d.1 Historically, C3d deposition is a recognized complication after LTx associated with primary graft dysfunction and early bronchiolitis obliterans syndrome (BOS)2,3 but is not widely used in LTx even though it's a result of complement deposition via the classical pathway.4 The International Society for Heart and Lung Transplantation Pathology Council established a threshold of>50% deposition of C4d in interstitial capillaries as diagnostic but emphasized...
