[Health-related quality of life in patients with bronchial asthma].
Abstract A patient is not, or at least should not be, a passive subject, but the active participant of the process of asthma treatment. This naturally imposes covering patients with bronchial asthma with a holistic model of care. Assessment of health-related quality of life (HRQoL) is one component of this model. HRQoL of asthma patients can be determined with an array of generic instruments, e.g. Medical Outcomes Survey Short Form 36 (SF-36), EuroQoL questionnaire (EQ-5D) or World Health Organization Quality of Life Questionnaire (WHOQOL), as well as with the specific tools, among which Saint George's Respiratory ...

Pulmonary pathology in patients with ulcerative colitis treated with mesalazine - a challenging and complex diagnostic problem. Case series and literature review.
We present three patients with ulcerative colitis, all treated with mesalazine, in whom unexplained lung disease developed. Due to different clinical and radiological presentation, different conditions were initially placed on the top of the differential list in each of them. The outcome was favourable in all patients despite differences in management. We compared our patients with similar cases from literature. We show the level of difficulty and complexity in the issue of lung disease in patients with inflammatory bowel disease.

[Neuroendocrine cell hyperplasia of infancy - case study].
Abstract Neuroendocrine cell hyperplasia of infancy is a rare form of children's interstitial lung disease recognised usually in infancy and in children younger than two years old. The typical clinical scenario, such as chest retractions, tachypnoea, hypoxaemia, crackles, characteristic changes in high-resolution computed tomography and histological examination of the lung parenchyma, is the cornerstone for diagnosis. In the article, the authors describe clinical manifestation of neuroendocrine cell hyperplasia and a present case of an infant with this rare interstitial lung disease. PMID: 24964239 [PubMed - i...

The quality of life of non-small cell lung cancer patients treated with chemotherapy.
CONCLUSIONS: The results of the study show that chemotherapy of non-small cell lung cancer was connected with decreased quality of life, especially in patients over 65 years of age. The patients under 65 years of age could not deal with the disease in respect of psychological aspects, whereas people over 65 years of age had greater problems with physical, social and professional functioning.

Distribution of antibodies to selected antigens of Pseudomonas aeruginosa in children and young adults with cystic fibrosis.
CONCLUSIONS: In the present study, the increased serum concentrations of IgG antibodies to P. aeruginosa antigens (AP, ELA and Exo-A) were found most often in the patients with chronic P.a. infection and in those in whom P.a. (especially mucoid type) was cultured at the time of the study. The clinical significance of the elevated antipseudomonal antibodies level in 19% of the patients never infected with P.a. is unclear and needs further investigation.

Estimates of mortality attributable to influenza and RSV in the United States during 1997–2009 by influenza type or subtype, age, cause of death, and risk status
ConclusionsInfluenza‐attributable mortality was highest in older and high‐risk individuals and mortality in children was higher than reported in passive Centers for Disease Control and Prevention surveillance. Influenza B‐attributable mortality was higher than A in four of 12 seasons. Our estimates represent an updated assessment of influenza‐attributable mortality in the USA.

Etiology of acute bronchiolitis and the relationship with meteorological conditions in hospitalized infants in China.
CONCLUSION: Although respiratory syncytial virus was the most frequent pathogen in patients in whom bronchiolitis was diagnosed, other pathogens, including newly identified viruses and MP, also play important roles in infants with bronchiolitis. Different respiratory pathogens have different traits in response to certain meteorological conditions. PMID: 24961189 [PubMed - in process] (Source: J Formos Med Assoc)

Trimodality Therapy for Superior Sulcus Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer: Southwest Oncology Group-Intergroup Trial S0220.
CONCLUSIONS: Although trimodality therapy provides excellent R0 and local control, only 66% of patients underwent surgical resection and only 45% completed the treatment regimen. Even in this subset, distant recurrence continues to be a major problem, particularly brain-only relapse. Future strategies to improve treatment outcomes in this patient population must increase the effectiveness of systemic therapy and reduce the incidence of brain-only metastases.

Ion flux in the lung: virus-induced inflammasome activation.
Abstract Innate immunity has a primary role in lung antimicrobial defenses. The inflammasome has evolved for this purpose and is an important surveillance system that, when triggered, fights infection and eliminates pathogens. However, there is growing evidence that the inflammasome also plays a role in the pathogenesis of acute and chronic respiratory disease. Inflammasomes contribute to both the clearance of the pathogen as well as its pathogenesis - depending on the amount of inflammation triggered. How respiratory viruses trigger inflammasome activation remains unclear. Emerging evidence shows that ion flux is ...

[Voluminous plexiform neurofibromas of the neck region in neurofibromatosis 1].
CONCLUSIONS. The VPNFN are histologically benign tumors. Those located in the larynx must be removed because of the respiratory problems, but it is not necessary in cases with other locations despite the voluminous size that can reach in some patients with great displacement of the surrounding organs. The analysis of the results of our series may demonstrate that al least the extralaryngeal tumors only grow to 11-12 years of age. This possibility may make recommendable to retard the surgical treatment as much as possible in cases that it is not necessary. PMID: 24965926 [PubMed - in process] (Source: Revista de Neurologia)

Surfactant administration in spontaneous breathing with N-CPAP for RDS.
Abstract Surfactant administration in spontaneous breathing with N-CPAP seems to be a promising approach in the management of neonatal RDS. Both recent RCTs and single centre experience have shown feasibility and good respiratory outcomes with this approach even in extremely preterm infants with respiratory failure. The results of these studies seem to demonstrate that avoiding mechanical ventilation and manual inflation (therefore the risk of high positive pressure and inappropriate tidal volume) it is possible to reduce the risk of VILI and the evolution towards BPD. Further large clinical studies are needed to c...

Weaning from invasive respiratory support in newborn: is there just one strategy?
Abstract Despite a even more frequent use to non-invasive respiratory support, mechanical ventilation is stilloften necessary for supporting premature infants with lung disease. Protracted mechanical ventilation is associatedwith increased morbidity and mortality and thus the earliest weaning from invasive respiratory supportis desirable. Weaning protocols may be helpful in achieving more rapid reduction in support. However,no consensus has been reached on criteria to identify when patients are ready to wean or how to achieve it. Inthis article, available evidence is reviewed and reasonable evidence-based recommend...

Death from 1918 pandemic influenza during the First World War: a perspective from personal and anecdotal evidence
The Meuse‐Argonne offensive, a decisive battle during the First World War, is the largest frontline commitment in American military history involving 1·2 million U.S. troops. With over 26 000 deaths among American soldiers, the offensive is considered “America's deadliest battle”. The Meuse‐Argonne offensive coincided with the highly fatal second wave of the influenza pandemic in 1918. In Europe and in U.S. Army training camps, 1918 pandemic influenza killed around 45 000 American soldiers making it questionable which battle should be regarded “America's deadliest”. The origin of the influenza pandemic has ...

The chromatin remodeling protein CHD7, mutated in CHARGE syndrome, is necessary for proper craniofacial and tracheal development
Conclusions: Conditional deletion of Chd7 in ectodermal and endodermal derivatives (Foxg1‐Cre) or migrating neural crest cells (Wnt1‐Cre) results in varied and more severe craniofacial defects than in Chd7Gt/+ mice. These studies indicate that CHD7 has an important, dosage‐dependent role in development of several different craniofacial tissues. Developmental Dynamics, 2014. © 2014 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

Long-term effects of severe lower respiratory tract infections in early childhood
Although it is widely believed that severe lower respiratory tract infection (LRTI) in early childhood is associated with later onset of chronic respiratory disease, the data are not conclusive. This is partly because it is possible that severe LRTI and chronic respiratory disease share common antecedents. In addition, even though earlier studies have shown an association, they have been based on relatively small populations. In this issue of The Journal, a longitudinal population-based study is reported by Szabo et al. They have used patient-level administrative data from public databases, which cover almost all of the po...
