In a recent study in Stem Cells Translational Medicine, a team of researchers at Mayo Clinic looked at the safety and feasibility of using stem cells to treat a condition that can devastate lung transplant patients. The disease itself is called bronchiolitis obliterans syndrome, or BOS, and involves inflammation and scarring in the smallest branches of […]

In the 1970s, when Cesar A. Keller, M.D., started his career in pulmonology, lung transplantation was widely considered science fiction. Now, lung transplantation is a lifesaving option for thousands of people every year, but it’s not perfect, Dr. Keller says. For adults, the five-year survival rate is about 55 percent, according to 2008–2015 lung transplant data from the Department of Health and Human […]
