Pulmonary lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM) is a destructive lung disease typically affecting women of childbearing age. Currently, there is no effective therapy for the disease and the prognosis is poor.
This study is designed to determine the disease processes involved at the level of cells and molecules, in order to develop more effective therapy.
Researchers intend to identify the proteins and genes that contribute to the process of lung destruction in affected individuals.
