Treating Complex Airway Conditions
Researchers at Johns Hopkins seek to identify causes and new treatments for airway disorders. Current research associated with the Complex Airway Clinic include the following:
David Feller-Kopman Lab
Research interests in the David Feller-Kopman Lab include improving the multidisciplinary treatment of patients with complex airway disease, investigating the physiology and pathophysiology of non-malignant central airway obstruction and pleural disease, and developing novel methods to teach procedural skills.
The Hillel Laboratory at Johns Hopkins investigates inflammatory, genetic, and molecular factors involved with laryngotracheal stenosis, or scar formation in the airway. Specifically, we are examining the interrelationship between genetics, the immune system, bacteria, and scar formation in the airway. The lab has developed unique models to study laryngotracheal stenosis and test drugs that may halt the progression of scar or reverse scar formation. We are also developing a drug-eluting stent to treat patients with laryngotracheal stenosis.
