A comparative and descriptive study of asthma in chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps.
CONCLUSION: Compared with previous studies, we found a very high prevalence of asthma and, frequently, asthma was undiagnosed. Furthermore, CRSwNPs was associated with chronic bronchitis and, in those with asthma, lower airway obstruction. These results call for a closer collaboration between otorhinolaryngology and respiratory medicine in relation to patients with CRSwNPs, in research as well as in clinical practice.

Sinonasal solitary chemosensory cells "taste" the upper respiratory environment to regulate innate immunity.
CONCLUSION: SCCs appear to be important mediators of upper airway innate immunity, as the SCC T2Rs regulate antimicrobial peptide secretion, but further study is needed to determine the specific T2R isoforms involved as well as whether polymorphisms in these isoforms affect susceptibility to infection or patient outcomes in CRS. The inhibitory role of T1R2/3 sweet receptor suggests that T1R2/3 blockers may have therapeutic potential in some CRS patients, particularly those with diabetes mellitus. However, further clinical study of the relationship between infection and T1R2/3 genotype is required. PMID: 25198020 [PubMe...

Respiratory epithelial adenomatoid hamartoma of the nose: An updated review.
CONCLUSION: Looking for REAH on CT scans and during endoscopic examination can lead to its diagnosis and help avoid aggressive surgical procedures and their complications. Endoscopic resection is the treatment of choice. The removal of REAH constitutes a specific surgery on the olfactory clefts, which can improve nasal obstruction as well as sense of smell. Whether REAH can be defined as a hamartoma, an inflammatory reactive process, or a neoplastic lesion remains to be determined.

Recombinant influenza H7 hemagglutinins induce lower neutralizing antibody titers in mice than do seasonal hemagglutinins
ConclusionsWe conclude that H7 HAs may be intrinsically less immunogenic than HA from seasonal human influenza viruses. (Source: Influenza and Other Respiratory Viruses)

[Surgical possibilities in the treatment of advanced and locally recurrent breast cancers].
Abstract Stage IV breast cancer is an incurable but treatable condition. Therapy of distant metastatic disease consists primarily of systemic and symptomatic treatments, while the role of surgery is subordinate. Conventional medical treatments result in 18-24 months average overall survival, and about 5-20% 5-year overall survival. However, it seems that in selected cases with solitary or oligometastases, mainly in those which respond well to drug therapy, the aggressive surgical removal of both the primary tumour and visceral metastases results in a survival advantage. After accurate evaluation of the patients, th...

Approach to cannabis use disorder in primary care: Focus on youth and other high-risk users.
CONCLUSION: Physicians should screen all patients in their practices at least once for cannabis use, especially those who have problems that might be caused by cannabis. Physicians should screen those at higher risk more often, at least annually. Lower-risk cannabis use should be distinguished from problematic use. Brief counseling should be provided to those with problematic use; these patients should be referred to specialists if they are unable to reduce or cease use.

Respiratory Hemodynamics in the Hepatic Veins—Normal Pattern
Doppler interrogation of blood flow in the hepatic veins (HVs) is a part of any comprehensive echocardiographic examination. Data derived from the HV Doppler provide a useful tool for the assessment of right heart function. Beyond its dependence on the cardiac cycle, right heart hemodynamics, and compliance of the liver parenchyma, blood flow in the HVs is influenced by the respiratory cycle. Systematic analysis of the behavior of the HV Doppler during respiration allows one to recognize normal and abnormal flow‐patterns and distinguish among various disease states that involve the right heart. In this manuscript we disc...

Mortality and severity evaluation by routine pneumonia prediction models among Japanese patients with 2009 pandemic influenza A (H1N1) pneumonia.
CONCLUSIONS: CURB-65 and A-DROP are fair predictors of mortality regardless of pneumonia patterns. However, the current pneumonia prediction models may underestimate the severity and appropriate site of care for patients with influenza pneumonia.

Prediction of COPD-specific health-related quality of life in primary care COPD patients: a prospective cohort study.
CONCLUSIONS: To predict COPD-specific HRQL in primary care COPD patients, previous HRQL was the best predictor in our models. Asking patients explicitly about dyspnoea, fatigue, depression and how they cope with COPD provides additional important information about future HRQL whereas FEV1 or other commonly used predictors add little to the prediction of HRQL.

An innovative COPD early detection programme in general practice: evaluating barriers to implementation.
Abstract In the Netherlands an innovative programme for early detection of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) in primary care among patients aged 40-70 years has been evaluated in both an effect study and a pilot implementation study. Health-care providers identified four obstacles for successful implementation of a COPD early detection programme. This Brief Communication describes the most important results of a qualitative study using in-depth interviews. PMID: 25164126 [PubMed - in process] (Source: Respiratory Care)

Phenobarbital-Induced DRESS: A Lichenoïd Picture.
We describe, the first case of phenobarbital-induced DRESS syndrome presenting as a lichenoïd eruption. A 49-year-old man had received phenobarbital for a cerebral metastasis. Twenty-five days later, he developed a purplish skin eruption, odynophagia, oral mucosal erosion and fever. Physical examination revealed a cervical lymphadenopathy and facial edema associated to a diffuse violaceous maculo-papular itchy rash. Laboratory findings showed a 1200/mm3 eosinophil's cell count. Alanine aminotransferase was 169 IU/l. Lactate dehydrogenase and creatinine phosphokinase were at 768 and 90 IU/l, respectively.  All symptoms re...

Senescence-associated secretory phenotype and its possible role in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
Abstract Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a major disease of the lungs. It primarily occurs after a prolonged period of cigarette smoking. Chronic inflammation of airways and the alveolar space as well as lung tissue destruction are the hallmarks of COPD. Recently it has been shown that cellular senescence might play a role in the pathogenesis of COPD. Cellular senescence comprises signal transduction program, leading to irreversible cell cycle arrest. The growth arrest in senescence can be triggered by many different mechanisms, including DNA damage and its recognition by cellular sensors, leading t...
