Dr. Bruce Johnson's Research


The University of Pittsburgh has remained at the forefront of lung transplant clinical research since the field began.  Dr. Johnson has been contributing to this literature since 1993 and he has participated in many of the seminal manuscripts including the landmark trial of inhaled cyclosporine (Iacono et al, N Engl J Med 2006) which proved the efficacy of this therapy for prevention of lung transplant rejection. He is currently leading a multicenter phase III trial to confirm the findings of this trial and he actively participates in many other NIH and industry sponsored clinical trials.
