Researchers uncover cellular mechanism that protects lungs during severe infections

10 enero 2015

A novel molecular mechanism that tightens the bonds between the cells that line blood vessels to form a leak-proof barrier has been discovered by researchers. The mechanism presents a potential new target to treat acute respiratory distress syndrome, an often fatal condition in which fluid leaks out of blood vessels into the lungs.
