Best friends dying of a lung disease receive life-saving transplants on same DAY

Kirstie Tancock, 24, and Katie Gammon, 15, from Devon, both suffer from cystic fibrosis. Katie was so ill she'd been transferred to a hospice.

AbstractIntroductionFlexible fiberoptic bronchoscopy (FFB) plays an important role in the surveillance of cystic fibrosis (CF) patients after lung transplantation (LTx). With rapid onset and clearance, propofol provides a safe and efficient method for sedation during FFB, yet sedation requirements for CF patients are not well described.ObjectivesDue to pharmacokinetic differences for other classes of drugs in CF patients, this study was performed to examine propofol requirements for sedation during bronchoscopy in lung transplant recipients with CF.MethodsA single-center retrospective cohort study was performed to examine ...

Claire Wineland vowed she wouldn't have a lung transplant, but her decline from cystic fibrosis made her reconsider. Now she's fighting for a chance at survival.

DEEP VENOUS THROMBOSIS (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE) are relatively common postoperative complications in the surgical patient population. Estimates of the incidence of DVT and/or PE in the lung transplant population vary significantly. A recent Nationwide Inpatient Sample inquiry estimated that venous thromboembolism (VTE) is diagnosed in 6.3% of lung transplant recipients during their index admission for transplantation, with DVT alone diagnosed in 5.4%, or concurrent with PE in 1.1%.1 However, this statistic is based primarily on reported diagnosis codes and may not capture all cases of interest.

Abstract This feature article provides a personal insight into the research from my group over the past 10 years. In particular, the article explains how, inspired in 2005 by meeting my now-husband, Sam, who had cystic fibrosis, and who in 2011 went on to have a double lung transplant, I took an active decision to follow a more applied approach to some of our research, attempting to use fundamental supramolecular chemistry to address problems of medical interest. In particular, our strategy uses self-assembly to fabricate biologically-active nanosystems from simple low-molecular-weight building blocks. These syste...
