World first in asthma research

LONDON, ON (Apr. 27, 2007) -- Robarts researchers have commenced a unique clinical study to investigate exercise-induced asthma. Using hyper-polarized gas and a clinical-grade magnetic resonance (MR) imaging scanner, they will capture images of patients lungs during an induced asthma response over a series of visits.

Western researchers find that a new COPD therapy device makes breathing easier

A new device designed to help people suffering from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and other mucus producing lung diseases developed by Trudell Medical International has been clinically tested by researchers at Western University and results show it improves breathlessness and the ability to move mucus, as well as betters a patient's quality of life.
