Cerebral microhaemorrhages secondary to fat embolus syndrome in sickle cell disease
Introduction Fat embolus syndrome (FES) is a distinct pattern of clinical symptoms and signs following circulation of fat globules, or emboli, in the lung parenchyma and peripheral circulation. It leads to multisystem dysfunction, most commonly involving the lungs, skin, brain and kidneys. It is usually seen following trauma; however, it is a rare but potentially fatal and under-diagnosed complication of bone marrow infarction in patients with sickle cell disease. Neurological involvement forms part of the classical clinical triad of presentation, composed of respiratory changes, neurological abnormalities and a petechial ...

Endotoxin-induced lung alveolar cell injury causes brain cell damage
Sepsis is the most common cause of acute respiratory distress syndrome, a severe lung inflammatory disorder with an elevated morbidity and mortality. Sepsis and acute respiratory distress syndrome involve the release of inflammatory mediators to the systemic circulation, propagating the cellular and molecular response and affecting distal organs, including the brain. Since it has been reported that sepsis and acute respiratory distress syndrome contribute to brain dysfunction, we investigated the brain-lung crosstalk using a combined experimental in vitro airway epithelial and brain cell injury model. Conditioned medi...

Multidisciplinary Lung Cancer Meetings: Improving the practice of radiation oncology and facing future challenges
Abstract Clinical guidelines widely recognize the importance of multidisciplinary meetings (MDM) in the optimal care of lung cancer patients. The published literature suggest that dedicated Lung Cancer MDM lead to increased treatment utilization rates and improved survival outcomes for patients with lung cancer. For radiation oncologists, Lung Cancer MDM have been proven to support evidence‐based practice and improve the utilization of radiotherapy. Lung Cancer MDM also allow for education and promotion of specialty radiotherapy services. The fast pace of modern medicine is also presenting new challenges for the multidis...

Confined Space Ventilation by Shipyard Welders: Observed Use and Effectiveness
Shipbuilding involves intensive welding activities within enclosed and confined spaces, and although ventilation is commonly used in the industry, its use and effectiveness has not been adequately documented. Workers engaged in welding in enclosed or confined spaces in two shipyards were observed for their use of ventilation and monitored for their exposure to particulate matter. The type of ventilation in use, its placement and face velocity, the movement of air within the space, and other ventilation-related parameters were recorded, along with task characteristics such as the type of welding, the welder’s position...

Peripheral nerve and neuromuscular junction pathology in Pompe disease
Pompe disease is a systemic metabolic disorder characterized by lack of acid-alpha glucosidase (GAA) resulting in ubiquitous lysosomal glycogen accumulation. Respiratory and ambulatory dysfunction are prominent features in patients with Pompe yet the mechanism defining the development of muscle weakness is currently unclear. Transgenic animal models of Pompe disease mirroring the patient phenotype have been invaluable in mechanistic and therapeutic study. Here, we demonstrate significant pathological alterations at neuromuscular junctions (NMJs) of the diaphragm and tibialis anterior muscle as prominent features of disease...

A motion-compensated image filter for low-dose fluoroscopy in a real-time tumor-tracking radiotherapy system
In the real-time tumor-tracking radiotherapy system, a surrogate fiducial marker inserted in or near the tumor is detected by fluoroscopy to realize respiratory-gated radiotherapy. The imaging dose caused by fluoroscopy should be minimized. In this work, an image processing technique is proposed for tracing a moving marker in low-dose imaging. The proposed tracking technique is a combination of a motion-compensated recursive filter and template pattern matching. The proposed image filter can reduce motion artifacts resulting from the recursive process based on the determination of the region of interest for the next frame ...

Abstract B07: Metabolic liabilities of human colon carcinoma spheroids are different compared to standard 2D cultures
The search for metabolic liabilities in tumor cells is typically performed in standard 2D cultures. This approach lacks the 3D context and heterogeneity of tumor tissue in vivo, which has significant impact on their metabolic behavior. One solution to modeling complex tumor cell interactions is to use cultured tumor spheroids. To assess bioenergetic function in individual spheroids, a modified, 96-well plate for the Seahorse Bioscience XFe96 Extracellular Flux Analyzer was created. Here, we demonstrate the capability of measuring mitochondrial oxygen consumption – a measure or mitochondrial respiration – and extracellu...

Abstract B87: Prolyl hydroxylase and the regulation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) levels in cancer cells
Hypoxic microenvironments frequently exist within many solid tumors with oxygen levels fluctuating temporally and spatially from normoxia to hypoxia. The response to hypoxia in human cells is mainly regulated by hypoxia-inducible factors or HIFs, a family of transcription factors which orchestrate signalling events promoting cancer stem cells, leading to angiogenesis and increased tumorigenesis. Several events conspire together to stabilize HIF-αs to become constitutively expressed in many cancer cell types, regardless of oxygen levels. Prolyl hydroxylases (PHDs) play a crucial role in HIF regulation by hydroxylating HIF ...

Antibiotic Management of Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus-Associated Acute Pulmonary Exacerbations in Cystic Fibrosis.
CONCLUSIONS: Data extrapolated from other populations suggest that vancomycin and linezolid are appropriate first-line treatment options for the treatment of APE secondary to MRSA. Second-line options include doxycycline or minocycline and trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole, each of which may be useful in patients coinfected with other respiratory pathogens, for which they may provide overlapping coverage. Ceftaroline and ceftobiprole are newer antibiotics that appear to have a potential role in the treatment of APE in CF, but the latter is not currently available to the US market. Although potentially useful, clindamycin is li...

Smoking-induced Skeletal Muscle Dysfunction: From Evidence to Mechanisms.
Abstract Smoking is the most important risk factor for the development of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Patients with COPD commonly suffer from skeletal muscle dysfunction and it has been suggested that cigarette smoke exposure contributes to the development of skeletal muscle dysfunction even before overt pulmonary pathology. This review summarizes the evidence that muscles of non-symptomatic smokers are weaker and less fatigue resistant than those of non-smokers. Although physical inactivity of many smokers contributes to some alterations observed in skeletal muscle, exposure to cigarette smoke pe...

Using New Technologies to Improve the Prevention and Management of Chronic Conditions in Populations.
Abstract Lifestyle factors are important in the development of chronic diseases, such as heart disease, respiratory disease, and diabetes, and chronic disease risk can be reduced by changes in lifestyle behaviors linked to these conditions. The use of mass media and community-wide strategies targeting these behaviors has been extensively evaluated since the 1970s. This review summarizes some examples of interventions and their use of media conducted within the old communications landscape of the 1970s and 1980s and the key lessons learned from their design, implementation, and evaluation.

Comparative efficacy of long-acting muscarinic antagonists in preventing COPD exacerbations: a network meta-analysis and meta-regression.
CONCLUSION: All LAMAs were equally effective in preventing moderate-to-severe exacerbations. Aclidinium was associated with the lowest risk for severe exacerbations when treatment duration was 6 months or longer. The concomitant use of LABA may not enhance the efficacy of LAMAs in preventing COPD exacerbations. More studies are needed to further examine above findings.

Mecillinam resistance mutations in clinical isolates and laboratory-selected mutants of Escherichia coli.
The objectives of this study were to identify mutations that confer mecillinam resistance in laboratory-isolated mutants and clinical isolates of Escherichia coli and to determine why mecillinam resistance remains rare clinically even though resistance is easily selected in the laboratory. In laboratory selections, mutation frequencies to mecillinam resistance varied between 8x10(-8) - 2x10(-5) per cell depending on the concentration of mecillinam used during selection. Several genes have been demonstrated to give mecillinam resistance, but here eight novel genes, previously unknown to be involved in mecillinam resistance ...

Postperfusion lung syndrome: physiopathology and therapeutic options
Postperfusion lung syndrome is rare but can be lethal. The underlying mechanism remains uncertain but triggering inflammatory cascades have become an accepted etiology. A better understanding of the pathophysiology and the roles of inflammatory mediators in the development of the syndrome is imperative in the determination of therapeutic options and promotion of patients' prognosis and survival. Postperfusion lung syndrome is similar to adult respiratory distress syndrome in clinical features, diagnostic approaches and management strategies. However, the etiologies and predisposing risk factors may differ between each othe...

Recent applications of Vitreoscilla hemoglobin technology in bioproduct synthesis and bioremediation.
Abstract Since its first use in 1990 to enhance production of α-amylase in E. coli, engineering of heterologous hosts to express the hemoglobin from the bacterium Vitreoscilla (VHb) has become a widely used strategy to enhance production of a variety of bioproducts, stimulate bioremediation, and increase growth and survival of engineered organisms. The hosts have included a variety of bacteria, yeast, fungi, higher plants, and even animals. The beneficial effects of VHb expression are presumably the result of one or more of its activities. The available evidence indicates that these include oxygen binding and deli...

HIF2α signaling inhibits adherens junctional disruption in acute lung injury
Vascular endothelial barrier dysfunction underlies diseases such as acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), characterized by edema and inflammatory cell infiltration. The transcription factor HIF2α is highly expressed in vascular endothelial cells (ECs) and may regulate endothelial barrier function. Here, we analyzed promoter sequences of genes encoding proteins that regulate adherens junction (AJ) integrity and determined that vascular endothelial protein tyrosine phosphatase (VE-PTP) is a HIF2α target. HIF2α-induced VE-PTP expression enhanced dephosphorylation of VE-cadherin, which reduced VE-cadherin endocytosis ...
