Sixty‐five years since the New York heat wave: Advances in sweat testing for cystic fibrosis
Summary The sweat test remains important as a diagnostic test for cystic fibrosis (CF) and has contributed greatly to our understanding of CF as a disease of epithelial electrolyte transport. The standardization of the sweat test, by Gibson and Cooke [Gibson and Cooke (1959) Pediatrics 1959;23:5], followed observations of excessive dehydration amongst patients with CF and confirmed the utility as a diagnostic test. Quantitative pilocarpine iontophoresis remains the gold standard for sweat induction, but there are a number of collection and analytical methods. The pathophysiology of electrolyte transport in sweat was descri...

The inclusion of N-Terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide in a sensitive screening strategy for systemic sclerosis-related pulmonary arterial hypertension: a cohort study
Conclusions: The combination of NT-proBNP with PFT is a sensitive, yet simple and non-invasive screening strategy for SSc-PAH. Patients with a positive screening result can be referred for echocardiography, and further confirmatory testing for PAH. In this way, it may be possible to shift the burden of routine screening away from echocardiography. The findings of this study should be confirmed in larger studies.

Chronic bronchitis in COPD patients is associated with increased risk of exacerbations: a cross‐sectional multicentre study
ConclusionsCB prevalence in GOLD stage 2–4 COPD patients is high. CB is related to current tobacco smoking, and prevalence increases with COPD severity and duration, emphysema and age. CB could be the hallmark of a subtype of COPD easy to identify in clinical practice, associated with increased disease severity and increased risk of exacerbation.

Preserving spontaneous breathing during mechanical ventilatory support: an old yet fascinating story
Facilitation of early spontaneous breathing activity is the most important measure to shorten weaning and avoid ventilator-induced lung injury and diaphragmatic injury in mechanically ventilated patients. However, the optimal degree of spontaneous muscle activity and ventilator support remains to be determined. Furthermore, effectiveness in relation to the pathophysiology of respiratory failure is unclear. In this regard the experimental study by Saddy and colleagues reveals interesting insights into the pathophysiology of ventilator-induced injury. More important, their results raise important questions that should be eva...

The hypoxic ventilatory response and trpa1 antagonism in conscious mice
ConclusionsThe study unraveled the role of TRPA1 in shaping the ventilatory response to low intensity hypoxia, liable to be mediated by vagally innervated respiratory chemosensors of lower functional rank, but contradicted the TRPA1 being indispensable for the powerful carotid body chemoreflex in face of a severe hypoxic threat.This article is protected by copyright.

One case of swine hepatitis E virus and porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus Co-infection in weaned pigs
Conclusions: We have detected HEV and PRRSV co-infection in one piglet. Severe pathologic changes were observed. The high mortality of weaned pigs which showed the similar clinical syptom was possibly a result of HEV and PRRSV co-infection, which has rarely been reported previously. We speculated that co-infection with PRRSV and HEV might lead to more serious problems. (Source: Virology Journal)

Regulation of Hypoxia-Induced Pulmonary Hypertension by Vascular Smooth Muscle HIF-1alpha.
Conclusions: These results indicate that HIF-1α in smooth muscle contributes to pulmonary vascular remodeling and pulmonary hypertension in chronic hypoxia. However, loss of HIF-1 function in smooth muscle does not affect hypoxic cardiac remodeling, suggesting that the cardiac hypertrophy response is not directly coupled to the increase in pulmonary artery pressure.

Synthetic Aminoglycosides Efficiently Suppress CFTR Nonsense Mutations and are Enhanced by Ivacaftor.
Abstract New drugs are needed to enhance premature termination codon (PTC) suppression to treat the underlying cause of cystic fibrosis (CF) and other diseases caused by nonsense mutations. We tested new synthetic aminoglycoside derivatives expressly developed for PTC suppression in a series of complementary CF models. Using a dual-luciferase reporter system containing the four most prevalent CFTR nonsense mutations (G542X, R553X, R1162X and W1282X) within their local sequence contexts (the three codons on either side of the PTC), we found that NB124 promoted the most readthrough of G542X, R1162X and W1282X PTCs.

Atomic force microscopic investigation of respiratory syncytial virus infection in HEp‐2 cells
We report the cytoplasmic and nuclear changes in human epidermoid cell line type 2 using atomic force microscopy. Human epidermoid cell line type 2 cells, grown on cover slips, were infected with RSV and fixed after various time periods, processed and observed for morphological changes using atomic force microscopy. RSV infected cells showed loss of membrane integrity, with degeneration in the cellular content and cytoskeleton. Nuclear membrane was disintegrated and nuclear volume was decreased. The chromatin of the RSV infected cells was condensed, progressing towards degeneration via pyknosis and apoptosis. Membrane prot...

Patient and hospital factors associated with induction mortality in acute lymphoblastic leukemia
ConclusionsThe overall risk of induction death is low but substantially increased in patients with cardio‐respiratory and other organ failures. Induction mortality varies up to three‐fold across hospitals and is correlated with hospital payer mix. Further work is needed to improve induction outcomes in hospitals with higher mortality. These data suggest an induction mortality rate of less than 1% may be an attainable national benchmark. Pediatr Blood Cancer © 2013 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. (Source: Pediatric Blood and Cancer)

Solirubrobacter phytolaccae sp. nov., a novel endophytic bacterium isolated from the root of Phytolacca acinosa Roxb.
Abstract A Gram-staining-positive, strictly aerobic, rod-shaped, non-motile, non-spore-forming and white-coloured bacterial strain, designated GTGR-8T, was isolated from the root of Phytolacca acinosa Roxb. collected from Taibai Mountain in Shaanxi Province, north-west China. Strain GTGR-8T grew optimally at 28-30 °C, at pH 7.0-8.0, and in the absence of NaCl. Phylogenetic analyses based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that strain GTGR-8T was a member of the genus Solirubrobacter and was closely related to Solirubrobacter pauli B33D1T (98.9 %), Solirubrobacter ginsenosidimutans BXN5-15T (97.0 %) and Solirubrobac...

Associations between COPD related manifestations: a cross-sectional study
Background: Cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis and emphysema are associated with COPD. Associations between these factors and whether they predict all-cause mortality in COPD patients are not well understood. Therefore, we examined associations between markers of cardiovascular disease (coronary artery calcification [CAC], thoracic aortic calcification [TAC] and arterial stiffness), bone density (bone attenuation of the thoracic vertebrae), emphysema (PI-950 and 15th percentile) and all-cause mortality in a COPD cohort. Methods: We assessed CAC, TAC, bone attenuation of the thoracic vertebrae, PI-950 and 15th percentile ...

A critical role of acute bronchoconstriction in the mortality associated with high-dose sarin inhalation: Effects of epinephrine and oxygen therapies.
Abstract Sarin is an organophosphate nerve agent that is among the most lethal chemical toxins known to mankind. Because of its vaporization properties and ease and low cost of production, sarin is the nerve agent with a strong potential for use by terrorists and rouge nations. The primary route of sarin exposure is through inhalation and, depending on the dose, sarin leads to acute respiratory failure and death. The mechanism(s) of sarin-induced respiratory failure is poorly understood. Sarin irreversibly inhibits acetylcholine esterase, leading to excessive synaptic levels of acetylcholine and, we have previously...

Metabolic cost of locomotion during treadmill walking with blood flow restriction
Summary We explored whether interval walking with blood flow restriction (BFR) increases net metabolic cost of locomotion in healthy young men at their optimal walking speed. We also determined whether decreased walking economy resulting from BFR might be accompanied by an increase in ventilation relative to VO2 and VCO2. Finally, we examined possible relationships between the changes in ratings of perceived exertion (RPE) and those obtained in minute ventilation (VE) during walking with BFR. Eighteen healthy men (age: 22·5 ± 3·4 years) performed graded treadmill exercise to assess VO2max. In a randomized fashion, pa...
