Rheonova was present at the ECFS basic science 2022 at Albufeira.
Our PhD student Lydia ESTEBAN ENJUTO presented her work on cystic fibrosis sputum handling for rheology. Muco-obstructive diseases, including cystic fibrosis, COPD or severe asthma feature an alteration of the mucus in the airways.
The mucus may become thicker or stiffer which impairs the mucociliary clearance, resulting in airway obstruction.
Mucus rheology is a way to assess and quantify this clearance impairment.
