Why are so many patients dying after lung transplants? A new study led by Jason Christie, MD, MSCE, aims to identify risk factors for chronic lung allograft dysfunction, the top cause.
Michael Levy, PhD, argues that a last-minute amendment weakens Philadelphia’s plan to stop being the nation's No.1 most bedbug infested city.
