Top American Lung Association Research Stories

The 21st century is an exciting time to be in medicine and research. American Lung Association funded researchers are finding themselves on the threshold of limitless discoveries in the diagnosis and treatment of lung diseases giving us hope that one day we will find cures for all lung diseases.

  • American Lung Association Calls for Research Applications on Early Detection for Lung Cancer
    August 22, 2013 - As part of the American Lung Association's continuing efforts to combat lung cancer, the organization has expanded the scope of their successful Lung Cancer Discovery Award to support research on the early detection of lung cancer.
  • Lung Association – A Drug-Free Treatment for Asthma?
    August 12, 2013 - Could a device used to treat sleep apnea also help control asthma? The American Lung Association’s Asthma Clinical Research Centers (ACRC) is trying to answer that question. The network is currently recruiting asthma patients for a study to examining whether the use of Continued Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP), a safe, non-pharmaceutical device that is used for sleep apnea can also improve asthma control.
  • American Lung Association Envisions Drug-Free Asthma Treatment in the Near Future
    August 12, 2013 - The American Lung Association Asthma Clinical Research Centers (ACRC) is the largest not-for-profit network of clinical research centers dedicated to discovering effective treatment strategies for asthma. The network is currently recruiting asthma patients for a study examining whether a safe, non-pharmaceutical device that is used for sleep apnea can also improve asthma control.
  • American Lung Association Report: Women at Greater Risk of COPD
    June 5, 2013 - The American Lung Association’s latest health disparity report, “Taking Her Breath Away: The Rise of COPD in Women,” examines the nation’s third leading cause of death and its increased prevalence among women in the United States. Women are 37 percent more likely to have chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) than men and now account for more than half of all deaths attributed to COPD in our nation.
  • American Lung Association Asthma Clinical Research Centers Finds that Nasal Steroids Do Not Improve Asthma
    May 22, 2013 - According to the American Lung Association Asthma Clinical Research Centers (ACRC), treating chronic sinonasal disease with nasal steroids does not improve asthma control.
  • American Lung Association Asthma Clinical Research Centers Present Results on Whether Soy Improves Asthma
    May 20, 2013 - Asthma has increased in prevalence and severity over the last several decades for unknown reasons. Researchers suggest that a person’s diet may impact asthma and that specific foods, such as soy, are likely to improve asthma. However, the latest study from the American Lung Association Asthma Clinical Research Centers (ACRC), found that ingesting a major component of soy in pill form had no effect on asthma compared to a group taking placebo.
  • An Investment in Up-and-Coming Research Scientists
    February 1, 2013 - Each year, the American Lung Association funds scientists conducting promising research in treating and curing lung disease in all its forms. The annual President's Research Report highlights some of these talented professionals whose work is supported through the Lung Association's Nationwide Research Program.
  • Lung Association Research Builds a Healthier Future
    October 15, 2012 - Research funded by the American Lung Association is working to build a healthier future. The American Lung Association Nationwide Research Program released its Research Awards Nationwide 2012-2013 report that highlights research supported by the Lung Association through its Asthma Clinical Research Centers (ACRC) and its Awards and Grants Program.
  • American Lung Association Supports Lung Disease Research to Build a Healthier Future
    October 15, 2012 - The American Lung Association’s Research Awards Nationwide 2012-2013 report highlights lung disease research supported by the organization that includes diseases affecting infants, children, and the elderly. These studies examine diseases such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and lung cancer.
  • Help Study the Psychology of Lung Cancer
    October 5, 2012 - What do people really think about lung cancer and people who have it? You can help us find out. The American Lung Association is helping to spread the word about a new research study developed by a team of scientists at Harvard, to better understand the social psychology of lung cancer.
