Research Lab Results for emphysema
Antoine Azar LabPrincipal Investigator:
Antoine Azar, M.D.
The Antoine Azar Lab conducts research on topics related to primary immunodeficiency diseases, ...allergies and lung disease. Specifically, we explore the role of primary immunodeficiency in certain difficult-to-treat chronic lung diseases, such as COPD, emphysema and asthma. view moreResearch Areas: emphysema, immunology, asthma, allergies, lung disease, COPD
Lonny Yarmus LabPrincipal Investigator:
Lonny Yarmus, D.O.
Clinical trials conducted in the Lonny Yarmus Lab focus primarily on minimally-invasive diagnos...tic testing for patients with lung cancer and local therapy options for malignant airway obstructions. We investigate ways to improve the early diagnosis of lung cancer, as well as the treatment of later-stage cancer, using the least invasive methods possible. We are also part of the LIBERATE clinical study for patients who have difficulty breathing and suffer from severe emphysema. view moreResearch Areas: emphysema, interventional pulmonology, airway stenosis, minimally-invasive diagnostic testing, lung cancer, central airway obstructions, lung transplant
Meredith McCormack LabPrincipal Investigator:
Meredith McCormack, M.D., M.H.S.
Research in the Meredith McCormack Lab deals primarily with pulmonary diseases, such as asthma ...and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and the role of environmental exposures in lung diseases. We have researched the factors that contribute to inner-city asthma, with a focus on how particulate matter air pollution impacts pulmonary function. We are also part of the LIBERATE clinical study, which is focused on patients who experience difficulty breathing and have been diagnosed with severe emphysema. We also have a longstanding interest in the effects of race/ethnicity, poverty and urbanization on nutrition and food allergies. view moreResearch Areas: emphysema, environmental exposure, asthma, lung disease, COPD, health disparities
Robert Wise LabPrincipal Investigator:
Robert Wise, M.D.
The Robert Wise Lab conducts clinical trials to study chronic obstructive lung diseases (COPD).... We investigate inhaled corticosteroids in patients with mild to moderate COPD and the effectiveness of anti-inflammatories in allowing lung growth in mild to moderate asthmatic children. Our research includes exploring the efficacy of various treatments for asthmatic women who are pregnant and of lung-volume reduction surgery for emphysema patients. We also conduct studies of the clinical epidemiology, pathobiology and treatment of interstitial lung disease in patients with scleroderma. view moreResearch Areas: critical care medicine, emphysema, scleroderma, pulmonary medicine, asthma, lung-volume reduction surgery, COPD
