3D Super Clusters in COPD Could Affect Adjacent Healthy Tissue

November 15, 2018 Share this content: To interpret their findings, the researchers developed a personalized computational model of super cluster emergence in COPD. By altering the biomechanical environment of adjacent healthy tissue, 3-dimensional (3D) “super clusters” in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) could play a key role in the progression of COPD to… Read More »
