: Patients from which this lung tissue was derived were enrolled in the biobank via a no-objection system for coded anonymous further use of such tissue (ExternalRef removed). However, since 01-09-2022, patients are enrolled in the biobank using active informed consent in accordance with local regulations from the LUMC biobank with approval by the institutional medical ethical committee (B20.042/Ab/ab and B20.042/Kb/kb). For the present study, cells from patients were used that were collected before 01-09-2022, and based on the regulations of the no-objection system, individual informed consent was not needed.
