Dark sputum: an atypical presentation of primary pulmonary malignant melanoma
We describe a case of primary lung melanoma with brain and skin metastases that presented with an initial clinical diagnosis of pneumonia. A 55-year-old white man presented with cough productive of dark sputum and fever. A chest x-ray showed a right lung infiltration. After failure to respond to usual treatment for pneumonia, bronchoscopy examination and CT scan revealed a right pulmonary mass. The CT-guided biopsy confirmed a diagnosis of malignant melanoma. The primary lung origin of the tumor was demonstrated by the characteristic junctional pattern of melanoma cells. Further evaluation revealed metastases in the brain ...

Blockade of the dorsomedial hypothalamus and the perifornical area inhibits respiratory responses to arousing and stressful stimuli
The dorsomedial hypothalamus (DMH) and the perifornical area (DMH/PeF) is one of the key regions of central autonomic processing. Previous studies have established that this region contains neurons that may be involved in respiratory processing; however, this has never been tested in conscious animals. The aim of our study was to investigate the involvement of the DMH/PeF area in mediating respiratory responses to stressors of various intensities and duration. Adult male Wistar rats (n = 8) received microinjections of GABAA agonist muscimol or saline into the DMH/PeF bilaterally and were subjected to a respiratory recordin...

Identification and genome characterization of genotype B and genotype C bovine parainfluenza type 3 viruses isolated in the United States
Conclusions: This study clearly demonstrated that BPI3Vb and BPI3Vc strains, previously thought to be foreign to the U.S., are indeed circulating in domestic livestock herds. Based on virus neutralization using polyclonal antisera, there were antigenic differences between viruses from these genotypes and the BPI3Va viruses that are included in currently marketed bovine vaccines. Further study of these viruses is warranted to determine pathogenic potential and cross-protection afforded by vaccination. (Source: BMC Veterinary Research)

Lipid Emulsion in Treatment of Local Anesthetic Toxicity
Epidural, spinal, regional, local, and intravenous administration of local anesthetics (LAs) is a cornerstone of anesthetic practice. LA toxicity is a grave consequence that is of great significance to anesthesia providers. Outcomes of LA toxicity range from inconvenient symptoms such as tinnitus, twitching, and hypotension to seizures; cardiovascular or respiratory collapse; and death. Lipid emulsion has emerged as a potential “magic bullet” in treating LA toxicity. This literature review provides background information and proposed mechanisms of action for LAs and lipid emulsion as well as animal experiments and a ca...

Utility of large-animal models of BPD: chronically ventilated preterm lambs
This paper is focused on unique insights provided by the preterm lamb physiological model of bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD). Connections are also made to insights provided by the former preterm baboon model of BPD, as well as to rodent models of lung injury to the immature, postnatal lung. The preterm lamb and baboon models recapitulate the clinical setting of preterm birth and respiratory failure that require prolonged ventilation support for days or weeks with oxygen-rich gas. An advantage of the preterm lamb model is the large size of preterm lambs, which facilitates physiological studies for days or weeks during the ...

c-Abl mediated tyrosine phosphorylation of paxillin regulates LPS-induced endothelial dysfunction and lung injury
Paxillin is phosphorylated at multiple residues; however, the role of tyrosine phosphorylation of paxillin in endothelial barrier dysfunction and acute lung injury (ALI) remains unclear. We used siRNA and site-specific nonphosphorylable mutants of paxillin to abrogate the function of paxillin to determine its role in lung endothelial permeability and ALI. In vitro, lipopolysaccharide (LPS) challenge of human lung microvascular endothelial cells (HLMVECs) resulted in enhanced tyrosine phosphorylation of paxillin at Y31 and Y118 with no significant change in Y181 and significant barrier dysfunction. Knockdown of paxillin wit...

Evaluation of cigarette smoke-induced emphysema in mice using quantitative micro-computed tomography
Chronic cigarette smoke (CS) exposure provokes variable changes in the lungs, and emphysema is an important feature of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. The usefulness of micro-computed tomography (CT) to assess emphysema in different mouse models has been investigated, but few studies evaluated the dynamic structural changes in a CS-induced emphysema mouse model. A novel micro-CT technique with respiratory and cardiac gating has resulted in high-quality images that enable processing for further quantitative and qualitative analyses. Adult female C57BL/6J mice were repeatedly exposed to mainstream CS, and micro-CT sca...

Suppression of endothelial CD39/ENTPD1 is associated with pulmonary vascular remodeling in pulmonary arterial hypertension
Endothelial cell (EC) dysfunction plays a role in the pathobiology of occlusive vasculopathy in pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). Purinergic signaling pathways, which consist of extracellular nucleotide and nucleoside-mediated cell signaling through specific receptors, are known to be important regulators of vascular tone and remodeling. Therefore, we hypothesized that abnormalities in the vascular purinergic microenvironment are associated with PAH. Enzymatic clearance is crucial to terminate unnecessary cell activation; one of the most abundantly expressed enzymes on the EC surface is E-NTPDase1/CD39, which hydrolyz...

Carbon monoxide negatively regulates NLRP3 inflammasome activation in macrophages
Inflammasomes are cytosolic protein complexes that promote the cleavage of caspase-1, which leads to the maturation and secretion of proinflammatory cytokines, including interleukin-1β (IL-1β) and IL-18. Among the known inflammasomes, the nucleotide-binding domain, leucine-rich-containing family, pyrin domain-containing-3 (NLRP3)-dependent inflammasome is critically involved in the pathogenesis of various acute or chronic inflammatory diseases. Carbon monoxide (CO), a gaseous molecule physiologically produced in cells and tissues during heme catabolism, can act as an anti-inflammatory molecule and a potent negati...

Roflumilast combined with adenosine increases mucosal hydration in human airway epithelial cultures after cigarette smoke exposure
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a growing cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Recent studies have shown that cigarette smoke (CS) induces cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) dysfunction, which leads to airway-surface liquid (ASL) dehydration. This in turn contributes to the mucus dehydration and impaired mucociliary clearance that are seen in the chronic bronchitis form of COPD. Roflumilast is a phosphodiesterase 4 inhibitor that may improve lung function and reduce the frequency of exacerbations in patients with COPD. Although roflumilast can affect cAMP metabolism, little is...

Mitochondrial DNA damage-associated molecular patterns mediate a feed-forward cycle of bacteria-induced vascular injury in perfused rat lungs
Fragments of the mitochondrial genome released into the systemic circulation after mechanical trauma, termed mitochondrial DNA damage-associated molecular patterns (mtDNA DAMPs), are thought to mediate the systemic inflammatory response syndrome. The close association between circulating mtDNA DAMP levels and outcome in sepsis suggests that bacteria also might be a stimulus for mtDNA DAMP release. To test this hypothesis, we measured mtDNA DAMP abundance in medium perfusing isolated rat lungs challenged with an intratracheal instillation of 5 x 107 colony-forming units of Pseudomonas aeruginosa (strain 103; PA103). Intratr...

Nrf2 regulates PU.1 expression and activity in the alveolar macrophage
Alveolar macrophage (AM) immune function depends on the activation of the transcription factor PU.1 by granulocyte macrophage colony-stimulating factor. We have determined that chronic alcohol ingestion dampens PU.1 signaling via an unknown zinc-dependent mechanism; specifically, although PU.1 is not known to be a zinc-dependent transcription factor, zinc treatment reversed alcohol-mediated dampening of PU.1 signaling. Nuclear factor (erythroid-derived 2)-like 2 (Nrf2), a zinc-dependent basic leucine zipper protein essential for antioxidant defenses, is also impaired by chronic alcohol ingestion and enhanced by zinc treatm...

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 ...
