Article

Respiratory disease is common in children and strongly associated with lifestyle and environmental exposures. Thus, it is important to study the epidemiology locally. The LuftiBus in the School (LUIS) study was set up to assess the respiratory health of schoolchildren in the canton of Zurich, Switzerland. LUIS is a cross-sectional population-based...
Article
Background: The lung clearance index (LCI) assesses global ventilation inhomogeneity and is a sensitive biomarker of airway function in cystic fibrosis (CF) lung disease. Objectives: We examined the association of LCI with the risk of death or lung transplantation (LTX) in individuals with CF. Methods: We performed a retrospective analysis in...

In smokers with preserved spirometry, DLCO is associated with ventilation inhomogeneity arising from peripheral airways. Measurement of DLCO to screen for early lung function abnormalities in smokers may be suboptimal and could be replaced by MBW. https://bit.ly/3nLmgg1.
Article
Background Increased (abnormal) ventilation inhomogeneity in individuals with mild Cystic Fibrosis (CF) lung disease may become a treatable trait for small-molecule therapeutics improving Cystic Fibrosis Transmembrane Regulator (CFTR) function. The relationship between CFTR function and ventilation inhomogeneity is unknown. We aimed to identify and...
