Tantalizing Therapeutics in Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia is a concise reference that provides an overview of emerging concepts in the understanding of lung development and injury from a molecular and cellular point-of-view, including exciting pathways that are paving the way for new options to prevent or treat Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia (BPD). The book's chapters are written by experts who are at the forefront of BPD research. Coverage includes chapters on exosomes, stem cells and miRs, as well as a section on new discoveries in BPD research with translational potential. This is a must-have reference for researchers, physicians and trainees working on BPD, lung developmental biology, and more.

Key Features

  • Includes discussions on which aspects of the bench research in Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia are the most promising areas
  • Offers insights into the latest research being conducted that could potentially move to the bassinet (in the NICU)
  • Contains evidence-based summaries and informed opinions about existing therapies


Researchers and physicians interested in diseases of the developing lung, including trainees (scientists doing their MS degrees, PhD-candidates pediatric residents and neonatal fellows)
