Lifecycle:1 Jan 1995 →  31 Dec 2019
Organisation profile:

In this project, we investigate the possibility to transplant lungs from donors after circulatory arrest. In a rabbit lung model, we look for biochemical, morphological and functional evidence that postmortem cooling, ventilation or inflation may be beneficial for lung viability in the absence of perfusion.

Keywords:reperfusion, ischemia, lung transplantation, non-heart beating donors, circulatory arrest
Disciplines:Immunology, Respiratory medicine, Orthopaedics, Surgery, Nursing, Biochemistry and metabolism, Medical biochemistry and metabolism
