    Mammalian lung development is a complex biological process, which is temporally and spatially regulated by growth factors, hormones, and extracellular matrix proteins. Abnormal changes of these molecules often lead to impaired lung development, and thus pulmonary diseases. Epithelial-mesenchymal...

    The author deals with the mechanical forces that regulate fetal lung development. He emphasizes the importance of lung growth and development during fetal life for extrauterine survival. He explains that the lung epithelium, throughout gestation, actively secretes fluid that creates a constant...

    Lung function tracks from the earliest age that it can be reliably measured. Genome wide association studies suggest that most variants identified for common complex traits are regulatory in function and active during fetal development.
