The promise of translational and personalised approaches for paediatric obstructive sleep apnoea: an 'Omics' perspective
Obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) can result in significant morbidities including the cardiovascular, metabolic and neurocognitive systems. These effects are purportedly mediated via activation of inflammatory cascades and the induction of oxidative stress, ultimately resulting in cellular injury and dysfunction. While great advances have been made in sleep medicine research in the past decades, there are still wide gaps in our knowledge concerning the exact underlying pathophysiological mechanisms of OSA and consequences. Without resolving these issues, the reasons why patients with a similar severity of OSA can have markedl...

The genomic origins of asthma
Lung function tracks from the earliest age that it can be reliably measured. Genome wide association studies suggest that most variants identified for common complex traits are regulatory in function and active during fetal development. Fetal programming of gene expression during development is critical to the formation of a normal lung. An understanding of how fetal developmental genes related to diseases of the lungs and airways is a critical area for research. This review article considers the developmental origins hypothesis, the stages of normal lung development and a variety of environmental exposures that might infl...

Bronchiolitis obliterans syndrome leads to a functional deterioration of the acinus post lung transplant
ABSTRACT Bronchiolitis obliterans syndrome (BOS) limits long-term survival of lung transplant recipients, and airflow obstruction in these patients likely originates in the small airways. 61 double lung transplant recipients performed multiple breath nitrogen washouts to obtain indices of acinar and conductive ventilation heterogeneity (Sacin, Scond). There was a significant association of BOS status with Sacin (Kruskal–Wallis; p<0.001) but not with Scond (p=0.1). These results demonstrate that it is the structural alteration of the terminal bronchioles, generating ventilation heterogeneity at the level of the dif...

Ambrisentan for pulmonary fibrosis
This randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled study is one of the largest multicentre studies investigating whether ambrisentan (an endothelin A receptor antagonist) reduces the rate of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) progression. The investigators compared ambrisentan (more commonly used in the treatment of pulmonary hypertension (PH)) with placebo on the basis of preclinical studies suggesting endothelin receptor blockade decreased the severity of pulmonary fibrosis. The primary endpoint was time to IPF progression defined as either death, respiratory hospitalisation or prespecified decrease in lung function (whi...

COPD and IPF: it's all about regulation and balance
The dominant theory of Hippocrates was that of the four humours—that when the four humours were in balance health prevailed. Therefore, the main goal of the medical therapy was to restore humoral equilibrium. We read with great interest the article by Hou et al,1 where an imbalance between protective and detrimental subgroups of T regulatory (Treg) cells in patients with COPD is showed. On the contrary with previous studies reporting no significant differences in CD4 foxp3+ T cells between patients with COPD and smokers,2 authors performed an elegant series of experiments and dissected Treg cells into three distinct ...

Answer to 'COPD and IPF: it's all about regulation and balance'
We thank Tzouvelekis and Bouros1 for their interest in our recent article in Thorax.2 The theory of Hippocrates reminds us of the balance theory informing traditional Chinese medicine. Ancient Chinese scholars believed there were two natural, complementary yet contradictory forces in our universe: yin and yang, with the former being feminine or negative and the latter masculine or positive. Both of them are always in a state of dynamic balance. A balanced state of yin and yang means health whereas an excess or deficiency of one or the other usually indicates disease. Ancient scholars in China therefore treated this phenome...

Defining obesity hypoventilation syndrome
The definition of obesity hypoventilation syndrome (OHS) proposed by Hart et al1 raises two questions that we have tried to answer briefly in this letter. First, previous definitions of OHS included obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA); Hart et al have excluded it. Why? OSA is present in most patients with OHS and is partly responsible for the hypercapnia.2 We believe that it is useful to include it in the definition or classification of the condition in a manner similar to narcolepsy: OHS with OSA and OHS without OSA, as in narcolepsy with cataplexy and narcolepsy without cataplexy. Such classification has mechanistic and thera...

Design of the Subpopulations and Intermediate Outcomes in COPD Study (SPIROMICS)
Subpopulations and Intermediate Outcomes in COPD Study (SPIROMICS) is a multicentre observational study of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) designed to guide future development of therapies for COPD by providing robust criteria for subclassifying COPD participants into groups most likely to benefit from a given therapy during a clinical trial, and identifying biomarkers/phenotypes that can be used as intermediate outcomes to reliably predict clinical benefit during therapeutic trials. The goal is to enrol 3200 participants in four strata. Participants undergo a baseline visit and three annual follow-up examinat...

DNA copy number changes as diagnostic tools for lung cancer
Lung cancer usually presents as advanced stage disease and there is a need for early diagnosis so that appropriate treatments can be provided prior to tumour progression. Copy number variation is frequently detected in tumours and can contribute to tumour progression. This is because regions harbouring DNA imbalance can contain genes encoding critical proteins whose altered dosage contributes to the neoplastic process. Three copy number variations (CNVs) from chromosomes 3p26-p11.1 (loss), 3q26.2-29 (gain) and 6q25.3-24.3 (loss) have previously been described in individuals presenting with endobronchial squamous metaplasia...

Power injector associated iatrogenic air embolism to the right heart
Air embolism is the entry of air into the vascular system and is usually associated with surgeries, trauma and central lines.1 A patient presented to the clinic with new onset atrial flutter and lower extremity oedema. The patient was admitted and within 24 h, the course became complicated by respiratory failure, requiring intubation and admission to the intensive care unit. A chest CT scan with contrast was ordered for evaluation. Upon acquisition of the images, the patient was found to have at least 50 cc of air to be present in the right atrium and ventricle (figure 1), along with bilateral pulmonary embolism, the ...

What's hot that the other lot got
Muc5b is in mucus regulation Muc5b is known to be involved in mucus regulation though its specific role is unknown. An American group developed a Muc5b deficient mouse (Nature 505:412–16). Muc5b deficiency caused material to accumulate in the upper airway. This subsequently led to chronic infection by multiple bacterial species including Staphylococcus aureus, with associated impaired resolution of inflammation. There was accumulation of apoptotic macrophages, impaired phagocytosis and a reduction in interleukin 23 production. In mice who had oversecretion of Muc5b, macrophage function improved as did airway clearanc...

Assessment of seasonality of influenza in swine using field submissions to a diagnostic laboratory in Ontario between 2007 and 2012
ConclusionsThus, this study identified evidence of seasonality in influenza‐like disease in swine herds, but not in circulation of influenza virus. Evidence of seasonality in exposure to influenza was dependent on assumptions of between‐month correlation. High exposure to H3N2 and H1N1 subtypes warrants more detailed investigation of within‐herd influenza virus circulation. The study provides initial insight into seasonality of influenza in swine and should be followed with herd‐level studies. (Source: Influenza and Other Respiratory Viruses)

CR0291 Chédiak-Higashi syndrome: an atypical phenotype case
Chédiak-Higashi syndrome (CHS) is an autosomal recessive disorder usually caused by a mutation in the gene LYST (lysosomal trafficking regulator) resulting in systemic neutrophil abnormalities and characterized by cutaneous, ocular, neurologic, and hematologic abnormalities. CHS usually manifests early in life in the form of partial oculocutaneous albinism (OCA), frequent infections (mostly skin and upper respiratory tract), and lymphadenopathy. Reported oral findings include ulcerations and early-onset periodontitis occurring in childhood. (Source: Oral Surgery, Oral Medicine, Oral Pathology, Oral Radiology, and Endodontics)

The use of a transcutaneous CO2 monitor during moderate sedation in oral and maxillofacial surgery
Continuous monitoring of end-tidal CO2 (ETCO2) is a requirement for deep sedation and general anesthesia during oral and maxillofacial surgery (OMFS) in 2014, and it may be expanded to moderate sedation in the future. In intubated patients, the ETCO2 measurement usually closely resembles the arterial partial pressure of CO2 (PaCO2). In nonintubated patients undergoing OMFS, ETCO2 measurements are unreliable with respect to the PaCO2, owing to technical limitations in capturing exhaled gases. Transcutaneous CO2 monitors measure the PtCO2 with electrochemical technology independent of expired breaths. This technology closely...
