The purpose of this study is to investigate new therapies for advanced lung disease.
Condition or disease
Lung Diseases, Interstitial
Other: novel biomarkers of lung disease
This research study is being conducted to learn about the progression and cause of lung disease. By agreeing to be a part of this study, you will allow the lung tissue which would normally have been discarded after your procedure, to be used for research purposes to allow us to understand more about your condition which may potentially lead to novel treatments and therapeutics. For this study, the investigators will isolate specific cells from the lung tissue and measure cellular, molecular and genetic mechanisms responsible for regulating lung disease. No other type of research will be performed on these samples nor will the samples be given to other investigators for unrelated research.
Choosing to participate in a study is an important personal decision. Talk with your doctor and family members or friends about deciding to join a study.
