Slipping Rib Syndrome: An elusive diagnosis
Slipping rib syndrome remains rarely recognized and frequently undiagnosed or misdiagnosed. Awareness of this condition may prevent extensive and unnecessary diagnostic evaluation and avoid chronic debilitating pain. Persistent lower chest and/or upper abdomen pain after analgesic treatment may suggest the possibility of this disorder. The diagnosis of this syndrome, is a clinical one, based on history and the hooking maneuver. A few cases have been published in the literature, giving no clear consensus about the treatment of this condition. (Source: Paediatric Respiratory Reviews)

The Chinchilla Research Resource Database: resource for an otolaryngology disease model
The long-tailed chinchilla (Chinchilla lanigera) is an established animal model for diseases of the inner and middle ear, among others. In particular, chinchilla is commonly used to study diseases involving viral and bacterial pathogens and polymicrobial infections of the upper respiratory tract and the ear, such as otitis media. The value of the chinchilla as a model for human diseases prompted the sequencing of its genome in 2012 and the more recent development of the Chinchilla Research Resource Database (http://crrd.mcw.edu) to provide investigators with easy access to relevant datasets and software tools to enhance th...

Novel relaxant effects of RPL554 on guinea‐pig tracheal smooth muscle contractility
Conclusions and implicationsRPL554 produces near maximal relaxation of highly contracted respiratory smooth muscle and provides additional relaxation compared with that produced by other clinically used bronchodilator drugs. This suggests that RPL554 has the potential to produce additional beneficial bronchodilation over and above that of maximal clinical doses of standard bronchodilators in highly constricted airways of patients.

Lateral positioning for critically ill adult patients.
CONCLUSIONS: Review authors could provide no clinical practice recommendations based on the findings of included studies. Available research could not eliminate the uncertainty surrounding benefits and/or risks associated with lateral positioning of critically ill adult patients. Research gaps include the effectiveness of lateral positioning compared with semi recumbent positioning for mechanically ventilated patients, lateral positioning compared with prone positioning for acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) and less frequent changes in body position. We recommend that future research be undertaken to address wheth...

Clinically Relevant In Vitro Testing of Orally Inhaled Products-Bridging the Gap Between the Lab and the Patient.
Abstract Current pharmacopeial methods for in vitro orally inhaled product (OIP) performance testing were developed primarily to support requirements for drug product registration and quality control. In addition, separate clinical studies are undertaken in order to quantify safety and efficacy in the hands of the patient. However, both laboratory and clinical studies are time-consuming and expensive and generally do not investigate either the effects of misuse or the severity of the respiratory disease being treated. The following modifications to laboratory evaluation methodologies can be incorporated without dif...

Cystic Lung Diseases: Algorithmic Approach.
Abstract Cysts are commonly seen on CT scans of the lungs, and diagnosis may be challenging. Clinical and radiographic features combined with a multidisciplinary approach may help differentiate among various disease entities, allowing correct diagnosis. It is important to distinguish cysts from cavities as they each have distinct etiologies and associated clinical disorders. Conditions like emphysema, honeycomb lung and cystic bronchiectasis may also mimic cystic disease. A simplified classification of cysts is proposed. Cysts may be present in greater profusion in the sub-pleural areas, when they typically represe...

Epidemiological and clinical characteristics of patients infected with enterovirus D68, France, July to December 2014.
Abstract In 2014, the United States (US) experienced a nationwide outbreak of enterovirus D68 (EV-D68) infection with 1,152 cases reported mainly in hospitalised children with severe asthma or bronchiolitis. Following the US alert, 11 laboratories of the French enterovirus (EV) surveillance network participated in an EV-D68 survey. A total of 6,229 respiratory samples, collected from 1 July to 31 December 2014, were screened for EV-D68 resulting in 212 EV-D68-positive samples. These 212 samples corresponded to 200 EV-D68 cases. The overall EV-D68 positivity rates among respiratory samples were of 5% (184/3,645) and...

Advances in the mechanism of paraquat-induced pulmonary injury.
CONCLUSIONS: In this review, we systematically elucidated the mechanism of PQ-induced pulmonary injury, and concluded that PQ causes pulmonary injury through oxidative, alveolar, mitochondrial, lipid and metabolic enzyme damage, all of which can lead to death due to pulmonary fibrosis. With this in mind, we propose recommendations for the treatment of PQ-induced pulmonary injury and provide theoretical bases for subsequent treatment strategies.

Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency Today: New Insights in the Immunological Pathways
More than 50 years ago, the observation that absence of the α1 band from protein electrophoresis is associated with severe emphysema established the link between α1-antitrypsin deficiency (AATD) and lung damage. From this discovery, the classic paradigm of protease/antiprotease imbalance was derived, linking lung destruction in patients with AATD to the unopposed effect of proteases. By extension, this paradigm was also applied to patients with ‘common' chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, in whom large increases in smoke-induced proteases could overwhelm the antiprotease capability of AAT. However, it has become inc...

Noninvasive ventilation versus oxygen therapy for the treatment of acute respiratory failure.
Authors: Pisani I, Comellini V, Nava S Abstract INTRODUCTION: there is an ongoing discussion on whether oxygen therapy or noninvasive ventilation (NIV) should be used in patient with acute respiratory failure. While respiratory acidosis, especially in case of COPD exacerbation, is a clear indication for NIV, data available in patients with acute hypoxemic respiratory failure (AHRF) are ambiguous. In addition, recently the use of nasal high flow (NHF) has been increased. Despite that NHF has been studied as an alternative to NIV, the clinical advantages of NHF need to be confirmed. Areas covered: the purpose of this...
