exercise and pulmonary function

Presently the Pulmonary Function Laboratory, directed by Fran ois Haas, Ph.D. has several ongoing projects: assessing the effects of the long term benefits of exercise in asthma patients; evaluating the use of steroid therapy in end stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD); and determining the role of endorphins on the aerobic threshold during naloxone blockage.

As follow-up to earlier work, the Laboratory has recently completed a double-blind study on the effects of pentoxifylline on gas exchange in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease patients. Other recently completed research includes studies on the effect of distractive auditory stimuli on exercise tolerance in patients with COPD; and the sequelae of treatment on lung function in survivors of childhood brain tumors.
