Integrated single-cell RNA sequencing analysis reveals alterations of ageing human lung endothelium heterogeneity in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (2022)
Working Paper
Faulkner, E. C., Moverley, A. A., Hart, S. P., & Nikitenko, L. L. Integrated single-cell RNA sequencing analysis reveals alterations of ageing human lung endothelium heterogeneity in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis

Increasing age is the main risk factor for chronic lung diseases (CLD) including idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF). Halting or reversing progression of IPF remains an unmet clinical need due to limited knowledge of underlying mechanisms. In particu...
