Newswise: Modifier Gene May Explain Why Some with Cystic Fibrosis are Less Prone to Infection

Modifier Gene May Explain Why Some with Cystic Fibrosis are Less Prone to Infection

University of California San Diego Health

People with cystic fibrosis who carry genetic variants that lower RNF5 gene expression have more mutant CFTR protein on cell surfaces. Even if the CFTR protein isn’t fully functional, it’s better than none, and may explain why some with cystic fibrosis are less prone to infection than others.

Maternal Antibiotic Treatment May Harm Preemies’ Lungs

American Physiological Society (APS)

New research in mice suggests that exposure to antibiotics before birth may impair lung development in premature infants. The study, the first to explore the gut-lung axis in prematurity, is published ahead of print in the American Journal of Physiology—Lung Cellular and Molecular Physiology and was chosen as an APSselect article for December.

Cleveland Clinic Study: Using Lungs from Increased-Risk Donors Expands Donor Pool While Maintaining Current Survival Rates

Cleveland Clinic

Cleveland Clinic researchers have found that using lungs from donors who are considered high risk for certain infectious diseases compared to standard risk donors results in similar one-year survival for recipients. In addition, researchers saw no difference in rejection or graft (donor lung) survival after one year in patients receiving lungs from increased-risk donors. The study was published recently in the Journal of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery.
