Reduced transforming growth factor β1 (TGF‐β1) in the repair of airway epithelial cells of children with asthma
ConclusionOur data has highlighted the importance of TGF‐β1 in pAEC wound repair in vitro. The significantly lower levels seen in asthmatic pAEC subsequently contributes to the dysregulated repair observed in these cells. (Source: Respirology)

Incorporation of poison center services in a state-wide overdose education and naloxone distribution program.
CONCLUSIONS: This retrospective case series of 78 cases of bystander-administered naloxone reports a 75.6% overall rate of reversal. SCIENTIFIC SIGNIFICANCE: The findings of this study may be more generalizable. Incorporation of poison center services facilitated the capture of more timely data not usually available to OEND programs. (Am J Addict 2016;XX:1-6).

Drug Interactions with Angiotensin Receptor Blockers: Role of Human Cytochromes P450.
Abstract Angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs) are the most recent class of agents for the treatment of hypertension. However, ARBs may cause a low incidence of headache, upper respiratory infection, back pain, muscle cramps, fatigue, dizziness, and many other side effects. In some cases, such toxicity is associated with pharmacokinetic alterations. The cytochrome P450 (CYP) enzyme system plays an important role in a lot of clinically important pharmacokinetic drug interactions. Specific cytochrome P450 (CYP) enzymes have been recently shown to be involved in the metabolism of several essential ARBs. Losartan is met...

Effect of Heated Humidification on CPAP Therapy Adherence in Subjects With Obstructive Sleep Apnea With Nasopharyngeal Symptoms.
CONCLUSIONS: Even in a tropical climate area, CPAP adherence and quality of life appeared to improve when heated humidification was employed in subjects with moderate to severe OSA with nasopharyngeal symptoms post-split-night polysomnography. The improvement may be related to a reduction in the dry throat/sore throat symptom. PMID: 27220350 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: Respiratory Care)

Increased mitochondrial arginine metabolism supports bioenergetics in asthma
High levels of arginine metabolizing enzymes, including inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) and arginase (ARG), are typical in asthmatic airway epithelium; however, little is known about the metabolic effects of enhanced arginine flux in asthma. Here, we demonstrated that increased metabolism sustains arginine availability in asthmatic airway epithelium with consequences for bioenergetics and inflammation. Expression of iNOS, ARG2, arginine synthetic enzymes, and mitochondrial respiratory complexes III and IV was elevated in asthmatic lung samples compared with healthy controls. ARG2 overexpression in a human bronchial ...

Lung clearance index and moment ratios at different cut‐off values in infant multiple‐breath washout measurements
ConclusionIn infants, the diagnostic performance of MBW strongly depends on the point of analysis. The cut‐off with the highest discriminative power to detect ventilation inhomogeneity in infants with cystic fibrosis and after preterm birth was at 1.5% tracer gas concentration.

[A Case of Giant Fibrovascular Polyp of the Esophagus, Treated Successfully by Endoscopic Resection].
Abstract Fibrovascular polyps are rare benign intraluminal tumors that usually arise from the cervical esophagus. These often present as very large sized pedunculated polyps and cause symptoms including dysphagia and respiratory distress. Generally, large polyps are surgically excised, while endoscopic resection is limited to smaller polyps. Herein, we present a giant fibrovascular polyp of the esophagus treated successfully by endoscopic resection. PMID: 27206436 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: Korean J Gastroenter...)

Performance of Facepiece Respirators and Surgical Masks Against Surgical Smoke: Simulated Workplace Protection Factor Study
Conclusions: SMs do not provide measurable protection against surgical smoke. SMRs offer considerably improved protection versus SMs, while the N100 FFRs showed significant improvement over the SMRs. The FS prototype offered a higher level of protection than the standard N100 FFR, due to a tighter seal. While we acknowledge that conventional N100 FFRs (equipped with exhalation valves) are not practical for human OR use, the results obtained with the FS prototype demonstrate the potential of the new FS technology for implementation on various types of respirators.

Compliance with the Use of Medical and Cloth Masks Among Healthcare Workers in Vietnam
Conclusion: Understanding the factors that affect compliance is important for the occupational health and safety of HCWs. New strategies and tools should be developed to increase compliance of HCWs. The presence of adverse events such as discomfort and breathing problems may be the main reasons for the low compliance with mask use and further studies should be conducted to improve the design/material of masks to improve comfort for the wearer.

Therapeutic effect of recombinant lentiviral vector containing succinate dehydrogenase iron-sulfur protein on the treatment of experimental autoimmunity myocarditis
Cardiac autoimmune reaction takes part in myocarditis, dilated cardiomyopathy and heart failure. Existing literature has confirmed that the occurrence of cardiomyopathy belongs to mitochondrial diseases and is related to the oxidative respiratory chain subunit. The special structure of iron-sulfur protein (ISP) is responsible for the oxidative stress in oxidative phosphorylation, which is also a target that is easily attacked by various damage factors. Using gene therapy technology to restore succinate dehydrogenase iron-sulfur protein (SDISP) function— and thus resume myocardial mitochondria function and myocardial func...

Performance Characteristics of FilmArray Respiratory Panel v1.7 for Detection of Adenovirus in a Large Cohort of Pediatric Nasopharyngeal Samples: One Test May Not Fit All [Virology]
The FilmArray Respiratory Panel (RP) v1.7 assay has improved sensitivity for detection of human adenovirus (HAdV), compared to an earlier version (RP v1.6). RP v1.7 was designed for detection of species B, C, and E but may show variable detection of species A, D, and F. We sought to evaluate the clinical and analytical performance of RP v1.7 for detection of HAdV in a large pediatric cohort. Respiratory specimens obtained from a tertiary care children's hospital between February 2014 and February 2015 were tested for HAdV by RP v1.7. If the RP v1.7 results were negative for HAdV, then the specimens were reflexed to a HAdV-...

Development of a Novel Cocktail Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay and a Field-Applicable Lateral-Flow Rapid Test for Diagnosis of Contagious Bovine Pleuropneumonia [Clinical Veterinary Microbiology]
Contagious bovine pleuropneumonia (CBPP) is a severe respiratory disease that is widespread in sub-Saharan Africa. It is caused by Mycoplasma mycoides subsp. mycoides, a bacterium belonging to the Mycoplasma mycoides cluster. In the absence of an efficient CBPP vaccine, improved and easy-to-use diagnostic assays for recurrent testing combined with isolation and treatment of positive animals represent an option for CBPP control in Africa. Here we describe the comprehensive screening of 17 immunogenic Mycoplasma mycoides subsp. mycoides proteins using well-characterized bovine sera for the development of a novel cocktail enz...

Detection of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome‐Like, Middle East Respiratory Syndrome‐Like Bat Coronaviruses and Group H Rotavirus in Faeces of Korean Bats
In this study, consensus primer‐based reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reactions (RT‐PCRs) and high‐throughput sequencing were performed to investigate viruses in bat faecal samples collected at 11 natural bat habitat sites from July to December 2015 in Korea. Diverse coronaviruses were first detected in Korean bat faeces, including alphacoronaviruses, SARS‐CoV‐like and MERS‐CoV‐like betacoronaviruses. In addition, we identified a novel bat rotavirus belonging to group H rotavirus which has only been described in human and pigs until now. Therefore, our results suggest the need for continuing surveillan...

Non‐invasive mechanical ventilation in elderly patients: A narrative review
The treatment of acute respiratory failure with non‐invasive ventilation (NIV) as a first‐line therapy is increasingly common in intensive care units. The reduced invasiveness of NIV leads to better outcomes than endotracheal intubation in carefully selected groups of patients. Furthermore, the use of NIV as a palliative treatment for respiratory failure and dyspnea has become increasingly common. NIV also has an impact on the use of “do not intubate” orders. In the present narrative review, we explore the use and outcome of NIV in elderly patients. To accomplish this, we reviewed the most recent available medical ...
