The mucus barrier in the lungs keeps foreign materials and bacteria from entering and infecting the lungs. But it also prevents many inhaled therapeutics from reaching their target. Now scientists have designed a DNA-loaded nanoparticle that can penetrate the hard-to-breach barrier—proving the concept, they say, that therapeutic genes may one day be delivered directly to the lungs to treat cystic fibrosis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, asthma and other life-threatening lung diseases. The research team, including Johns Hopkins researchers and scientists from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro in Brazil, reported its findings in the June 29 Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
