Exposes, the EU and implementing Article 5.3
The modern era of ever more complex governmental processes, multi-government groupings such as the European Union, and overarching international legislation and agreements stacks the dice in favour of large global corporations. Tobacco companies have the resources needed to keep track of all the different processes, to use them to best advantage, to find legal and procedural highways and byways that will further confuse and delay, to generate support from groups directly and indirectly associated with them, and to lobby, lobby, lobby. Building on the cornucopia of documents made available following the US Master Settlement...

Worldwide news and comment
CANADA: EXPERTS WANT HEALTH ON LITIGATION AGENDA In the early 1980's, Canada had one of the globe's highest rates of per capita tobacco consumption. But in less than two decades, in response to aggressive campaigning by health NGOs, Canada experienced arguably the largest decline in use anywhere. An image from the Campaign for Justice on Tobacco Fraud. Gains were made on many fronts: through increases in tobacco taxation, a world precedent-setting ban on tobacco advertising, breakthroughs in smoke-free air travel and federally-regulated workplaces, and from landmark tobacco package warnings. But Canada can no longer claim...

TPPA and tobacco control: threats to APEC countries
Background Twelve-member countries of the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) are negotiating the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPPA), a free trade agreement to facilitate international trade and investment. As reported by multiple sources, the TPPA would grant the same trade benefits and legal protections to tobacco products, services and investments that it would provide to other sectors. Malaysia proposed excluding tobacco control measures from the scope of all TPPA chapters while the US proposed only to establish a consultation process in tobacco-related disputes and to declare that tobacco control measures...

Seeking out 'easy targets'? Tobacco companies, health inequalities and public policy
Conclusions Tobacco companies co-opted and misrepresented a social determinants model of health to argue against government regulation of the tobacco market. By drawing on this model, tobacco companies are misappropriating a powerful public health discourse in an attempt to create a false dichotomy between reducing inequalities and regulating of the tobacco market. Such tactics highlight the need for ongoing monitoring of industry attempts to undermine tobacco control policy, particularly with reference to harm reduction. (Source: Tobacco Control)

News media representations of electronic cigarettes: an analysis of newspaper coverage in the UK and Scotland
Conclusions Drawing on the diffusion of innovations theory, we suggest that newspaper constructions of ENDS provide readers with important information about what ENDS are for, how they work, and their relative advantages. These themes, and dominance of more positive meanings, raise a number of issues for tobacco control, including concerns around celebrity use and promotion; the impact of increasing ENDS use on social norms around smoking; their potential to undermine smokefree legislation; and their promotion as effective cessation aids.

Tobacco control in Namibia: the importance of government capacity, media coverage and industry interference
Conclusions The fact that Namibia was able to pass fairly comprehensive tobacco control legislation with such meagre resources is commendable. The government must now implement the regulations that make the legislation effective. Tobacco control progress in low-income and middle-income nations can be encouraged through use of the media and improved staff and legal capacity within health ministries. (Source: Tobacco Control)

Does use of 'non-trial' cessation support help explain the lack of effect from offering NRT to quitline callers in a RCT?
Introduction Quitlines help smokers to stop but few studies have explored how behavioural and medicinal interventions can be optimally delivered via this route.1 One of these was the PORTSSS trial, which found that offering free nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) vouchers did not increase cessation rates compared with no offer.2 It also found that a ‘proactive’, more intensive call regime from/to clients did not improve cessation rates over ‘usual care’. Was it possible that participants who did not receive a voucher for NRT sought out and used other forms of cessation support, which minimised any e...

Dietary milk fat globule membrane improves endurance capacity in mice
Milk fat globule membrane (MFGM) comprises carbohydrates, membrane-specific proteins, glycoproteins, phospholipids, and sphingolipids. We evaluated the effects of MFGM consumption over a 12-wk period on endurance capacity and energy metabolism in BALB/c mice. Long-term MFGM intake combined with regular exercise improved endurance capacity, as evidenced by swimming time until fatigue, in a dose-dependent manner. The effect of dietary MFGM plus exercise was accompanied by higher oxygen consumption and lower respiratory quotient, as determined by indirect calorimetry. MFGM intake combined with exercise increased plasma levels...

Disinhibition of the midbrain colliculi unmasks coordinated autonomic, respiratory, and somatomotor responses to auditory and visual stimuli
In this study, we tested the hypothesis that, under conditions in which collicular neurons are disinhibited, coordinated cardiovascular, somatomotor, and respiratory responses can be evoked by natural environmental stimuli. In response to natural auditory, visual, or somatosensory stimuli, powerful synchronized increases in sympathetic, respiratory, and somatomotor activity were generated following blockade of GABAA receptors in a specific region in the midbrain colliculi of anesthetized rats, but not under control conditions. Such responses still occurred after removal of most of the forebrain, including the amygdala and ...

Physiological responses of a rodent to heliox reveal constancy of evaporative water loss under perturbing environmental conditions
We present here evidence, based on the first measurements of evaporative water loss for a small mammal in heliox, that mammals may have a previously unappreciated ability to maintain acute constancy of total evaporative water loss under perturbing environmental conditions. Thermoregulatory responses of ash-grey mice (Pseudomys albocinereus) to heliox were as expected, with changes in metabolic rate, conductance, and respiratory ventilation consistent with maintaining constancy of body temperature under conditions of enhanced heat loss. However, evaporative water loss did not increase in heliox. This is despite our confirma...

Whooping cough.
Abstract Whooping cough or pertussis is a contagious disease of the upper respiratory tract caused by the bacterium Bordetella pertussis. Whooping cough is transmitted via droplets in the air from sneezing or coughing and individuals are considered infectious from just before and up to 21 days after the onset of the cough. Usually it has an incubation period of seven to ten days, and the disease lasts six to eight weeks. PMID: 25315570 [PubMed - in process] (Source: Nursing Standard)

Butorphanol with oxygen insufflation corrects etorphine-induced hypoxaemia in chemically immobilized white rhinoceros ( Ceratotherium simum )
Background: Opioid-induced immobilization is associated with severe respiratory depression in the white rhinoceros. We evaluated the efficacy of butorphanol and oxygen insufflation in alleviating opioid-induced respiratory depression in eight boma-managed rhinoceros. Results: Chemical immobilization with etorphine, azaperone and hyaluronidase, as per standard procedure for the white rhinoceros, caused severe respiratory depression with hypoxaemia (PaO2?=?27???7?mmHg [mean???SD]), hypercapnia (PaCO2?=?82???6?mmHg) and acidosis (pH =7.26???0.02) in the control trial at 5?min.

Regulation of epithelial sodium channels in urokinase plasminogen activator deficiency
Epithelial sodium channels (ENaC) govern transepithelial salt and fluid homeostasis. ENaC contributes to polarization, apoptosis, epithelial-mesenchymal transformation, etc. Fibrinolytic proteases play a crucial role in virtually all of these processes and are elaborated by the airway epithelium. We hypothesized that urokinase-like plasminogen activator (uPA) regulates ENaC function in airway epithelial cells and tested that possibility in primary murine tracheal epithelial cells (MTE). Both basal and cAMP-activated Na+ flow through ENaC were significantly reduced in monolayers of uPA-deficient cells. The reduction in ENaC...

Regulation of fibroblast lipid storage and myofibroblast phenotypes during alveolar septation in mice
Signaling through platelet-derived growth factor receptor-α (PDGFRα) is required for alveolar septation and participates in alveolar regeneration after pneumonectomy. In both adipose tissue and skeletal muscle, bipotent pdgfrα-expressing progenitors expressing delta-like ligand-1 or sex-determining region Y box 9 (Sox9) may differentiate into either lipid storage cells or myofibroblasts. We analyzed markers of mesenchymal progenitors and differentiation in lung fibroblasts (LF) with different levels (absent, low, or high) of pdgfrα gene expression. A larger proportion of pdgfrα-expressing than...

MicroRNA-96 inhibits FoxO3a function in IPF fibroblasts on type I collagen matrix
We examined whether aberrantly low FoxO3a expression is in part due to increased miR-96 levels in IPF fibroblasts on polymerized collagen, thereby causing IPF fibroblasts to maintain their pathological properties. miR-96 expression was upregulated in IPF fibroblasts compared with control fibroblasts when cultured on collagen. In contrast, FoxO3a mRNA levels were reduced in most IPF fibroblasts. However, when miR-96 function was inhibited, FoxO3a mRNA and protein expression were increased, suppressing IPF fibroblast proliferation and promoting their cell death in a dose-dependent fashion. Likewise, FoxO3a and its target pro...

cAMP-dependent protein kinase activation decreases cytokine release in bronchial epithelial cells
Lung injury caused by inhalation of dust from swine-concentrated animal-feeding operations (CAFO) involves the release of inflammatory cytokine interleukin 8 (IL-8), which is mediated by protein kinase C- (PKC-) in airway epithelial cells. Once activated by CAFO dust, PKC- is responsible for slowing cilia beating and reducing cell migration for wound repair. Conversely, the cAMP-dependent protein kinase (PKA) stimulates contrasting effects, such as increased cilia beating and an acceleration of cell migration for wound repair. We hypothesized that a bidirectional mechanism involving PKA and PKC regulates epithelial airway ...

Role of MMP2 and MMP9 in TRPV4-induced lung injury
In this study, we tested the hypothesis that TRPV4 activation provides a Ca2+ source necessary for proteolytic disruption of cell-cell or cell-matrix adhesion by matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) 2 and 9, thus increasing septal barrier permeability. In our study, C57BL/6 or TRPV4–/– mouse lungs were perfused with varying doses of the TRPV4 agonist GSK-1016790A (Sigma) and then prepared for Western blot. Lung injury, assessed by increases in lung wet-to-dry weight ratios and total protein levels in the bronchoalveolar lavage fluid, was increased in a dose-dependent fashion in TRPV4+/+ but not TRPV4–/–...
