In a newly published paper in the Stem Cells Translational Medicine journal entitled Adult Lung Spheroid Cells Contain Progenitor Cells and Mediate Regeneration in Rodents With Bleomycin-Induced Pulmonary Fibrosis, scientists from North Carolina State University discovered a quick and simple method to produce stem cells from adult lung tissues. These findings could be relevant in the treatment of pulmonary fibrosis (PF).

Pulmonary fibrosis is a disease affecting the lungs in which mucus build-up induces inflammation, injury and structural changes of the lungs. In turn, this leads to thickening of the lung walls and reduces oxygen supply in the blood.
