MBCT for Patients with Respiratory Conditions Who Experience Anxiety and Depression: A Qualitative Study
Abstract Patients with asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) often experience anxiety and depression in relation to their respiratory condition. Anxiety and depression in this population are associated with decreased activity. The aim of this phenomenological study was to carry out in-depth qualitative interviews with a purposive sample of patients with asthma and COPD taking part in an 8-week mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) course to explore their experiences of MBCT. In particular, we were interested in how the mindfulness approach helped them, or not, and their awareness of any mean...

Effect of mandibular advancement splint treatment on tongue shape in obstructive sleep apnea
Conclusion This study reports a detailed two-dimensional analysis of tongue dimensions as well as assessment of adjacentsoft palate shape and upper airway structures without and with MAS treatment for OSA. Our finding suggests that MAS does induce changes in tongue shape. MAS treatment responders showed a greater decrease in tongue length (between the tongue tip and hyoid bone) with MAS in situ; whether differences in alteration of tongue position with MAS explain differences in treatment response requires further investigation.

Adjusting tidal volume to stress index in an open lung condition optimizes ventilation and prevents overdistension in an experimental model of lung injury and reduced chest wall compliance
Conclusions: Setting tidal volume to a non-injurious stress index in an open lung condition improves alveolar ventilation and prevents overdistension without increasing lung injury. This is in comparison with limited Pplat protective ventilation in a model of lung injury with low chest-wall compliance. (Source: Critical Care)

Identification and analysis of the mechanism underlying heat-inducible expression of rice aconitase 1
In this study, we found that expression of the rice Aconitase gene OsACO1 is induced in a time-dependent manner by heat but not other typical abiotic stresses. To analyze the transcriptional regulation mechanism underlying the response to heat, the OsACO1 promoter (P OsACO1 ) was isolated and characterized in transgenic rice. Using qualitative and quantitative analyses, we found that the expression of the GUS reporter gene responded to heat in different tissues and at different stages of development when driven by P OsACO1 . A series of 5′ distal deletions of P OsACO1 was generated to delineate the region responsible for...

PET CO 2 measurement and feature extraction of capnogram signals for extubation outcomes from mechanical ventilation
Capnography is a continuous and noninvasive method for carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) measurement, and it has become the standard of care for basic respiratory monitoring for intubated patients in the intensive care unit. In addition, it has been used to adjust ventilatory parameters during mechanical ventilation (MV). However, a substantial debate remains as to whether capnography is useful during the process of weaning and extubation from MV during the postoperative period. Thus, the main objective of this study was to present a new use for time-based capnography data by measuring the end-tidal CO 2 pressure ( ##IMG## [ht...

Respiratory Complexes III and IV Can each Bind Two Molecules of Cytochrome at Low Ionic Strength
Cytochrome c1 (Cc1) is the subunit of mitochondrial complex III (III), or Cytochrome bc1 (Cbc1), responsible for electron transfer (ET) to Cytochrome c (Cc) and, in turn, to complex IV (IV), or Cytochrome c Oxidase (CcO) [1–5]. This function is essential for mitochondrial respiration, the major source of energy in eukaryotic cells. The organization of the mitochondrial electron transport chain is a subject of intense debate at present, where two different models are being considered: the fluid model, that proposes a random organization for individual respiratory protein components, and the solid model, suggesting a stabl...

Aberrant activation of AMP-activated protein kinase contributes to the abnormal distribution of HuR in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease. The major symptoms of ALS patients are muscle weakness and atrophy, which are caused by the degeneration of motor neurons. The clinical presentations of ALS include respiratory insufficiency and voluntary movement impairment [1]. Most patients die after 3–5years of being diagnosed with ALS. The formation of cytosolic protein aggregates in motor neurons is a hallmark of ALS. In addition, aberrant RNA metabolism because of dysfunction and/or mislocalization of RNA-binding proteins has been implicated in ALS [2]. (Source: FEBS Letters)

Epidemiologic, clinical, and virologic characteristics of human rhinovirus infection among otherwise healthy children and adults
Human rhinovirus (HRV)—the most prevalent respiratory virus—causes up to half of common colds [1,2] and imposes a significant economic burden [3]. HRV has also been associated with bronchiolitis [4], pneumonia [5], and exacerbation of breathing difficulties in populations with underlying respiratory conditions, including asthma, cystic fibrosis, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) [6–8]. Prior to the era of molecular testing, rhinovirus was considered to be a relatively mild pathogen of questionable importance. (Source: Journal of Clinical Virology)

Detection of respiratory viruses in gargle specimens of healthy children
Respiratory tract viral infection is one of the most common and important disease conditions in children. Recently, PCR based assays have made it possible for novel viruses to be discovered, leading to appraisal of the clinical impacts of these viruses and several other well-known respiratory viruses [1–4]. Some of these viruses are detected alone in specimens from patients with respiratory symptoms (sometimes in those of inpatients) but their pathogenicity is not clear because they are detected simultaneously with other viruses in many cases [5–7].

Dipeptidyl-peptidase 10 as a genetic biomarker for the aspirin-exacerbated respiratory disease phenotype
Aspirin-exacerbated respiratory disease (AERD) is an endotype of severe and eosinophilic adult asthma characterized by chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps and hypersensitivity to aspirin and/or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. A genetic contribution of dipeptidyl-peptidase 10 (DPP10) to asthma susceptibility and lung function decline has been reported. However, little is known about the role of DPP10 in the pathogenesis of AERD. (Source: Annals of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology)

Genomic Investigations Unmask Mycoplasma amphoriforme, a New Respiratory Pathogen
Conclusions. Mycoplasma amphoriforme isolates form a closely related species responsible for a chronic relapsing and remitting infection in PAD patients in the United Kingdom and from immunocompetent patients in other countries. We provide strong evidence of transmission between patients attending the same clinic, suggesting that screening and isolation may be necessary for susceptible patients. This work demonstrates the critical role that WGS can play in rapidly unraveling the biology of a novel pathogen. (Source: Clinical Infectious Diseases)

Management and complications of pneumonia
Pneumonia is the leading cause of mortality in children under five worldwide. Death is rare in developed countries, but it remains a major cause of hospital admissions and of both acute and chronic morbidity. Understanding current management and recognition of complications is important to all paediatricians. The causative organism varies with age and differentiating between viral, bacterial and other causes can be challenging. Supportive care and antibiotic treatment are the mainstays of modern management. (Source: Paediatrics and Child Health)

Serum retinol levels and pulmonary function in children and adolescents with cystic fibrosis
It has been suggested that higher serum retinol levels could have protective effects on pulmonary function (PF) in patients with cystic fibrosis (CF). However, serum retinol levels will be transiently decreased during pulmonary exacerbation. Therefore, the extent of chronic pulmonary inflammation should be included when describing the association between PF and serum retinol. We assessed the longitudinal relation between serum retinol, immunoglobulin G (IgG) and PF in paediatric CF patients. (Source: Journal of Cystic Fibrosis)

Asthma and the Hygiene Hypothesis - Does Cleanliness Matter?
Conclusions Bacterial exposure in house dust determined childhood asthma and allergies. Personal cleanliness, such as washing hands, and home cleanliness were objectively reflected by dust parameters in homes. However, neither personal nor home cleanliness were associated with protection from asthma and allergies. Other microbial components in house dust not affected by personal hygiene are likely to play a role.

Moving Toward True Inclusion of Racial/Ethnic Minorities in Federally Funded Studies: a Key Step for Achieving Respiratory Health Equality in the U.S.
Abstract A key objective of the 1993 National Institutes of Health (NIH) Revitalization Act was to ensure inclusion of minorities in clinical research. We conducted a literature search from 1993 to 2013 to examine whether racial/ethnic minorities are adequately represented in published research studies of pulmonary diseases, particularly NIH-funded studies. We found a marked under-representation of minorities in published clinical research on pulmonary diseases. Over the last 20 years, inclusion of members of racial or ethnic minority groups was reported (in MeSH terms, journal titles, and MEDLINE fields) in <5%...
