Vaccine coverage in CF children: A French multicenter study
Recent reports have pointed the low vaccine coverage in patients with chronic diseases. Data are lacking in patients with cystic fibrosis (CF). Gaining more information on coverage both for mandatory vaccines and those more specifically recommended would help to optimize care of these patients. (Source: Journal of Cystic Fibrosis)

Cardiac ECMO: How to predict the unpredictable
Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO) has long been considered standard of care for babies and children with severe cardiac and respiratory failure. In recent years, there has been a substantial increase in utilization of ECMO for adult patients.[1] The CESAR trail demonstrated efficacy of ECMO for acute respiratory failure[2], and experience with H1N1 influenza suggested enhanced survival for patients with severe disease that were referred for ECMO. [3,4] Likewise, there has been growing enthusiasm for ECMO in adult cardiac failure resulting from myocardial infarction, myocarditis, or postcardiotomy shock. (Source: J...

Endothelial disruptive pro-inflammatory effects of nicotine and e-cigarette vapor exposures.
Abstract The increased use of inhaled nicotine via e-cigarettes has unknown risks to lung health. Having previously shown that cigarette smoke (CS) extract disrupts the lung microvasculature barrier function by endothelial cell activation and cytoskeletal rearrangement, we investigated the contribution of nicotine in CS or e-cigarette extracts (e-Cig) to lung endothelial injury. Primary lung microvascular endothelial cells were exposed to nicotine, e-Cig solution, or condensed e-Cig vapor (1-20 mM nicotine) or to nicotine-free CS extract or e-Cig solutions. Compared to nicotine-containing, nicotine free-CS extract ...

Elevated sputum BPIFB1 levels in smokers with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease: a longitudinal study.
In conclusion, higher sputum concentrations of BPIFB1 were associated with changes of lung function over time, especially in current smokers with COPD. BPIFB1 may be involved in the pathogenesis of smoking-related lung diseases. PMID: 25979078 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: Am J Physiol Lung Ce...)

Contribution of srf, elk-1 and myocardin to airway smooth muscle remodeling in heaves, an asthma-like disease of horses.
In conclusion, SRF and its cofactor MYOCD likely contribute to the hypertrophy of peripheral ASM observed in equine asthmatic airways, while the remodeling of the central airways is more static or involves different transcription factors.

Continuous Mucociliary Transport by Primary Human Airway Epithelial Cells in vitro.
In this study, we have characterized a novel method that allows human airway epithelial cells to differentiate into a mucociliary epithelium that transports mucus in a continuous circular track. The mucociliary transport device (MCTD) allows the measurement and manipulation of all features of mucociliary transport (MCT) in a controlled in vitro system. In this initial study, the effect of ciliary beat frequency and mucus concentration on the speed of mucociliary transport was investigated.

An Official ATS/AACN/ACCP/ESICM/SCCM Policy Statement: Responding to Requests for Potentially Inappropriate Treatments in Intensive Care Units.
ially Inappropriate Care Abstract BACKGROUND: There is controversy about how to manage requests by patients or surrogates for treatments that clinicians believe should not be administered. PURPOSE: This multisociety statement provides recommendations to prevent and manage intractable disagreements about the use of such treatments in intensive care units. METHODS: The recommendations were developed using an iterative consensus process, including expert committee development and peer review by designated committees of each of the participating professional societies (American Thoracic Society, American Associ...

Oncostatin M-dependent Mcl-1 induction mediated by JAK1/2-STAT1/3 and CREB contributes to bioenergetic improvements and protective effects against mitochondrial dysfunction in cortical neurons.
In conclusion, our findings indicated that OSM induces Mcl-1 expression via activation of ERK1/2, JAK1/2, STAT1/3, and CREB; furthermore, OSM-mediated Mcl-1 induction contributes to bioenergetic improvements and neuroprotective effects against 3-NP toxicity in cortical neurons. OSM may thus serve as a novel neuroprotective agent against mitochondrial dysfunction commonly associated with pathogenic mechanisms underlying neurodegeneration.

Outbreak of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis in two secondary schools.
CONCLUSIONS: In the context of globalization and the increased prevalence of MDR-TB, outbreaks such as the one presented here are only to be expected. Contact tracing, strict follow-up of confirmed cases, the availability of fast diagnostic techniques to avoid treatment delay, and chemoprophylaxis, together with the molecular characterization of strains, are still essential.
