Epithelial, bronchial (DHBE), human CF

Cystic fibrosis (also known as CF or mucoviscidosis) is a common recessive genetic disease which affects the entire body, causing progressive disability and often early death.
Difficulty breathing is the most serious symptom and results from frequent lung infections that are treated with, though not cured by, antibiotics and other medications. A multitude of other symptoms, including sinus infections, poor growth, diarrhea, and infertility result from the effects of CF on other parts of the body.

Human bronchial/tracheal epithelial cells isolated from the epithelial cells that line the airway above the bifurcation of the lungs.

Recommended Media

Airway cell media are serum-free media that have been optimized for the proliferation of airway cells.

BEGM is optimized to provide the best growth for Normal Human Bronchial/Tracheal Epithelial Cells.

Media developed specifically for cultivation of bronchial epithelial cells in an air-liquid interface system.
