Breathing Life into Lung Transplant Research!

LTF and American Thoracic Society team up on patient education

In partnership with the American Thoracic Society (ATS), the Lung Transplant LTF1Foundation is collaborating on patient information sheets as part an on-going Patient Information Education Series.

As part of the Lung Disease Week initiative, ATS invited the Lung Transplant Foundation to host Lung Transplant Week providing information about therapy for individuals who have chronic and progressive lung disease. LTF President Jeff Goldstein, a member of the ATS Public Advisory Roundtable, was a contributor to Lung Transplant Week and the information sheets.

These peer-reviewed articles are designed to provide pre- and post-lung transplant patients with current information and are published on the American Thoracic Society website and in the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine.

Topics include:

What is Lung Transplantation?

Recipient Selection for Lung Transplantation

Rejection after Lung Transplantation?
