Speaker Neil Alexis, Ph.D. of UNC Chapel Hill will discuss:

  • What are the advantages of sputum samples vs. other types of lung samples
    such as BAL?
  • What makes a high-quality sputum sample?
  • What can or should be measured in sputum?
  • Induced vs. Spontaneous Sputum – key differences – time and place for each.
  • Induced Sputum: “I heard it’s hard to do”… no, but it’s easy to do poorly.
  • Novel Sputum method: Home collection with delayed lab processing – encouraging data.
  • Intro to NELF- Nasal Epithelial Lining Fluid – a noninvasive method of sampling for chronic lung disease biomarkers
