Today’s featured artist is Jennie Arnold with her submission titled “Northern Lights”.
“Pulmonary disease in PCD reflects the loss of the key innate lung defense mechanism, mucociliary clearance, and symptoms begin early in life. There are no validated PCD-specific therapies; thus, therapies for PCD are extrapolated from another disease with defective mucociliary clearance, CF, and from patients with non-CF bronchiectasis, particularly as relates to antibiotic therapy and macrolides as antiinflammatory agents (86–90). We concur with recommendations of the European Respiratory Society for management of lung disease in PCD, including routine airway clearance, the use of antibiotics to control infection, and the elimination of exposure to inflammatory triggers, including passive smoke (3).” ~ American Thoracic Society
The PCD Artist Project is a collaborative effort by artist to raise awareness for PCD or primary ciliary dyskinesia and support the PCD Smiles program. Each artist who submitted art work to the project either has PCD or has a PCD family member.
