Researchers have identified a link between the health of children with asthma and the quality of family interactions at mealtime.

Scientists have created a model of the molecule that causes the chronic lung inflammation responsible for asthma. This model may help in the design of new and improved asthma drugs.
Diesel in the Air
Researchers from Duke University have discovered how nanoparticles in diesel fumes can harm cells in the lungs.
