chemosensitivity

chemosensitivity

1. Sensitivity of chemoreceptors to hypoxia and hypercapnea; ↓ chemosensitivity to hypoxia has been linked to fatal asthma attacks.
2. Sensitivity of a tumor to chemotherapy.

Perhaps they could be used more broadly for chemosensitivity, as we demonstrated in the NEJM study, for regenerative medicine to replace organ tissue that is damaged, for diabetes -- we could remove remaining islet ells in the pancreas, expand them, and implant them back into the pancreas -- and to treat the many storage diseases caused by lack of liver enzymes.
