Neurally adjusted ventilation assist in weaning difficulty: First case report from India
Milind Baldi, Inderpaul Singh Sehgal, Sahajal Dhooria, Digambar Behera, Ritesh AgarwalIndian Journal of Critical Care Medicine 2016 20(6):364-367Invasive mechanical ventilation is an integral component in the management of critically ill patients. In certain situations, liberation from mechanical ventilation becomes difficult resulting in prolonged ventilation. Patient-ventilator dyssynchrony is a frequently encountered reason for difficult weaning. Neurally adjusted ventilatory assist (NAVA) is a novel mode of ventilation that utilizes the electrical activity of diaphragm to pick up respiratory signals and delivers assist...

Prospective study of the efficacy of antibiotics versus antitussive drugs for the management of URTI-related acute cough in children
Conclusion Antibiotics are generally not useful nor appropriate in treating acute cough due to the common cold. Furthermore, inappropriate antibiotic use introduces the possibility of adverse side effects as well as promotion of antibiotic resistance. The findings of the present study suggest that antitussives, especially peripherally acting agents, represent an effective treatment option for acute pediatric cough caused by URTIs.

Unifying the p73 knockout phenotypes: TAp73 orchestrates multiciliogenesis [Outlook]
Multiciliogenesis is essential for the function of different epithelia, and its failure results in brain defects, respiratory diseases, and infertility. In this issue of Genes & Development, Nemajerova and colleagues (pp. 1300–1312) reveal the p53 family member and p73 isoform TAp73 as a transcription factor dictating the differentiation of multiciliated cells. Their findings provide the long-awaited unifying explanation for the diverse phenotypes of the p73 knockout mice. (Source: Genes and Development)

TAp73 is a central transcriptional regulator of airway multiciliogenesis [Research Papers]
Motile multiciliated cells (MCCs) have critical roles in respiratory health and disease and are essential for cleaning inhaled pollutants and pathogens from airways. Despite their significance for human disease, the transcriptional control that governs multiciliogenesis remains poorly understood. Here we identify TP73, a p53 homolog, as governing the program for airway multiciliogenesis. Mice with TP73 deficiency suffer from chronic respiratory tract infections due to profound defects in ciliogenesis and complete loss of mucociliary clearance. Organotypic airway cultures pinpoint TAp73 as necessary and sufficient for basal...

Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome in Adenovirus type 4 Pneumonia: a Case Report
Human adenoviruses (HAdVs) are non enveloped, double stranded DNA viruses usually causing acute febrile and self-limiting respiratory infections in children [1,4]. Severe infections are usually observed in neonates [2] and immunocompromised adults, such as HIV-positive individuals or transplanted patients [3,5]. However, few cases of adenovirus-associated community-acquired pneumonia with acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) have been described in immunocompetent adults [1,6]. To date, more than 50 HAdV types have been identified and grouped in seven different species (A-G) [11]. (Source: Journal of Clinical Virology)

Intensive care unit acquired weakness: A Rehabilitation Perspective of Diagnosis, Treatment, and Functional Management.
Abstract Intensive care unit acquired weakness (ICUAW) occurs with reported incidence rates from 25 to 100%. Risk factors include immobility, sepsis, persistent systemic inflammation, multi-organ system failure, hyperglycemia, glucocorticoids, and neuromuscular blocking agents. The pathophysiology remains unknown. Clinical features may be neuropathic, myopathic, or a combination of both. Although manual muscle testing is more practical in diagnosing ICUAW, the "gold standard" for the diagnosis of ICUAW remains electromyography (EMG) and nerve conduction studies. The only potential interventions known to date to pre...

Single-dose treatment with a humanized neutralizing antibody affords full protection of a human transgenic mouse model from lethal Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS)-coronavirus infection.
Abstract Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) is continuously spreading and causing severe and fatal acute respiratory disease in humans. Prophylactic and therapeutic strategies are therefore urgently needed to control MERS-CoV infection. Here, we generated a humanized monoclonal antibody (mAb), designated hMS-1, which targeted the MERS-CoV receptor-binding domain (RBD) with high affinity. hMS-1 significantly blocked MERS-CoV RBD binding to its viral receptor, human dipeptidyl peptidase 4 (hDPP4), potently neutralized infection by a prototype MERS-CoV, and effectively cross-neutralized evolved ME...

Signaling via pattern recognition receptors NOD2 and TLR2 contributes to immunomodulatory control of lethal pneumovirus infection.
Abstract Pattern recognition receptors (PRRs) engage microbial components in the lung, although their role in providing primary host defense against respiratory virus infection is not fully understood. We have previously shown that Gram-positive Lactobacillus plantarum (Lp) administered to the respiratory tract promotes full and sustained protection in response to an otherwise lethal mouse pneumovirus (PVM) infection, a robust example of heterologous immunity. While Lp engages PRRs TLR2 and NOD2 in ex vivo signaling assays, we found that Lp-mediated protection was unimpaired in single gene-deleted TLR2(-/-) and NOD...

Dynamic organization of the mitochondrial protein import machinery.
Authors: Straub SP, Stiller SB, Wiedemann N, Pfanner N Abstract Mitochondria contain elaborate machineries for the import of precursor proteins from the cytosol. The translocase of the outer mitochondrial membrane performs the initial import of precursor proteins and transfers the precursors to downstream translocases, including the presequence translocase and the carrier translocase of the inner membrane, the mitochondrial import and assembly machinery of the intermembrane space, and the sorting and assembly machinery of the outer membrane. Although the protein translocases can function as separate entities in vit...
