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.

The burden of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease in the elderly population.
CONCLUSIONS: Age and specific geriatric conditions have a great negative impact on COPD in elderly patients. Geriatric conditions should be addressed in the management of elderly COPD patients. PMID: 25169845 [PubMed - in process] (Source: Respiratory Care)

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...

MicroRNA-708 regulates
Conclusions: In human ASM cells, TNF-?-induced CD38 expression is regulated by miR-708 directly binding to 3?UTR and indirectly by regulating JNK MAPK and PI3K/AKT signaling and has the potential to control airway inflammation, ASM contractility and proliferation. (Source: Respiratory Research)

Meta-analysis of high doses of ambroxol treatment for acute lung injury/acute respiratory distress syndrome based on randomized controlled trials.
This study seeks to evaluate the potential benefits of high doses of ambroxol treatment for acute lung injury (ALI)/acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) by conducting a meta-analysis based on randomized controlled trials (RCTs). We searched the Pubmed, Embase, China National Knowledge Infrastructure, and Wanfang databases through December 2013. Only RCTs evaluating high doses of ambroxol (≥15 mg/kg or 1000 mg/day) treatment for patients with ALI/ARDS were selected. We included 10 RCTs involving 508 patients. Adjuvant treatment with high doses of ambroxol increased PaO2 /FiO2 (weight mean differences [WMD] =...
