The Organellar Genomes of Chromera and Vitrella, the Phototrophic Relatives of Apicomplexan Parasites.
Abstract Apicomplexa are known to contain greatly reduced organellar genomes. Their mitochondrial genome carries only three protein-coding genes, and their plastid genome is reduced to a 35-kb-long circle.The discovery of coralendosymbiotic algae Chromera velia and Vitrella brassicaformis, which share a common ancestry with Apicomplexa, provided an opportunity to study possibly ancestral forms of organellar genomes, a unique glimpse into the evolutionary history of apicomplexan parasites. The structurally similar mitochondrial genomes of Chromera and Vitrella differ in gene content, which is reflected in the compos...

Glycoprotein 5 of porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus strain SD16 inhibits viral replication and causes G2/M cell cycle arrest, but does not induce cellular apoptosis in Marc-145 cells.
Abstract Cell apoptosis is common after infection with porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSV). PRRSV GP5 has been reported to induce cell apoptosis. To further understand the role of GP5 in PRRSV induced cell apoptosis, we established Marc-145 cell lines stably expressing full-length GP5, GP5(Δ84-96) (aa 84-96 deletion), and GP5(Δ97-119) (aa 97-119 deletion). Cell proliferation, cell cycle progression, cell apoptosis and virus replication in these cell lines were evaluated. Neither truncated nor full-length GP5 induced cell apoptosis in Marc-145 cells. However, GP5(Δ97-119), but not full-len...

Lack of Transmission among Close Contacts of Patient with Case of Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Imported into the United States, 2014.
DR Abstract In May 2014, a traveler from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia was the first person identified with Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) infection in the United States. To evaluate transmission risk, we determined the type, duration, and frequency of patient contact among health care personnel (HCP), household, and community contacts by using standard questionnaires and, for HCP, global positioning system (GPS) tracer tag logs. Respiratory and serum samples from all contacts were tested for MERS-CoV. Of 61 identified contacts, 56 were interviewed. HCP exposures occurred most frequently in ...

Race/ethnicity and asthma management among adults presenting to the emergency department
We investigated whether racial/ethnic disparities exist in asthma management among 1785 adults requiring emergency department (ED) treatment. In this multicentre study, non‐Hispanic blacks with increased chronic asthma severity were only as likely (P > 0.05) as non‐Hispanic whites or Hispanics to utilize controller medications or see asthma specialists before ED presentation and to be prescribed recommended inhaled corticosteroids at ED discharge. Improved ED education on evidence‐based chronic disease management is needed to address continuing race/ethnicity‐based asthma disparities. (Source: Respirology)

Effects of Synchronization during Noninvasive Intermittent Mandatory Ventilation in Preterm Infants with Respiratory Distress Syndrome Immediately after Extubation
Background: Noninvasive ventilation is increasingly used in very-low-birth-weight infants (VLBWI) to reduce complications that occur with invasive ventilation. However, the physiological effects of synchronization during noninvasive nasal intermittent mandatory ventilation (IMV) have not been tested in VLBWI immediately after extubation. Objective: We aimed to study the short-term effects of synchronized nasal IMV (S-NIMV) compared to nonsynchronized nasal IMV (NIMV) on breathing effort as measured by phasic esophageal pressure (Pe) deflection, spontaneous respiratory rate (RR), gas exchange, cerebral tissue oxygen saturat...

Effects of non-invasive ventilation on objective sleep and nocturnal respiration in patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
Abstract In amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), non-invasive ventilation (NIV) is indicated if sleep-disordered breathing (SDB), daytime hypercapnia, or significant diaphragmatic weakness is present. We investigated both short-term and long-term effects of NIV on objective measures of sleep and nocturnal respiration in patients with ALS. Polysomnography (PSG) and transcutaneous capnography were conducted for diagnosis of SDB (T0), for treatment initiation (T1), and follow-up 3, 9, and 15 months later (T2, T3, and T4, respectively). Records from 65 patients were retrospectively analyzed at T0 and T1. At subsequen...

Shwachman–Diamond syndrome (SDS) in a preterm neonate
A preterm neonate at 29‐week gestational age was born with intrauterine growth restriction, severe pancytopaenia and gross skeletal dysplasia. Antenatal screening bloods, TORCH/parvovirus tests and karyotype were unremarkable. Postnatally, he had normal microarray comparative genomic hybridization and serum B12/folate levels, and human immunodeficiency virus and cytomegalovirus polymerase chain reaction and antoimmune screening were negative. Targeted gene testing for Shwachman–Diamond syndrome (SDS) revealed the pathognomic mutation (c.183_184delTAinsCT). His postnatal clinical course was complicated by: (i) Ventilato...

Age‐based analysis of pediatric upper airway dimensions using computed tomography imaging
ConclusionThe narrower transverse dimension compared to the AP diameter suggests that the airway is elliptical immediately below the vocal cords. The present study demonstrates that the airway characteristics in children between the subglottic area and the cricoid change from an elliptical to a round (circular) shape. The cone‐shaped airway characteristic, which has been historically proposed, was not observed. Given that subglottic transverse diameter is the smallest area dimension, one must assume this is the most likely area of resistance to the passage of an endotracheal tube rather than only the cricoid.
