Treatment of Slowly Growing Mycobacteria
The most common nontuberculous mycobacterial (NTM) lung pathogen, Mycobacterium avium complex (MAC), requires antibiotic treatment regimens that are long and often arduous. M kansasii is the slowly growing NTM pathogen with the most predictably successful treatment outcomes, whereas other slowly growing NTM pathogens such as M xeonpi, M szulgai, and M malmoense are less predictably responsive to antibiotic regimens. M simiae is the most difficult of the common slowly growing NTM pathogens to eradicate. Surgical intervention for slowly growing mycobacterial lung infection has proved beneficial for some patients, but the opt...

Nutritional Screening of Pulmonology Department Inpatients
Publication date: November–December 2014 Source:Revista Portuguesa de Pneumologia (English Edition), Volume 20, Issue 6 Author(s): Isabel Maia , Sónia Xará , Isabel Dias , Bárbara Parente , Teresa F. Amaral Undernutrition is associated with worse clinical outcomes and so screening is recommended. Given the paucity of information on nutritional status and on the clinical impact of undernutrition in Pulmonology patients who have been hospitalized, it is of the utmost importance that it is studied. Through a longitudinal study conducted of 323 patients consecutively admitted to a Pulmonology hospital department, undern...

Is TNF-α gene polymorphism related to pulmonary functions and prognosis as determined by FEV1, BMI, COPD exacerbation and hospitalization in patients with smoking-related COPD in a Turkish population?
Conclusion In conclusion, there was no difference between smoking-related COPD and the control group according to TNF α-308 gene polymorphism in a Caucasian population. In addition, it was shown that important determinants of prognosis of COPD such as FEV1, BMI, COPD exacerbation and hospitalization were not associated with TNF-α-308 gene polymorphism.

Environment and Health in Children Day Care Centres (ENVIRH) – Study rationale and protocol
This study comprised two phases. Phase I included an evaluation of 45 DCCs (25 from Lisbon and 20 from Oporto, targeting 5161 children). In this phase, building characteristics, indoor CO2 and air temperature/relative humidity, were assessed. A children's respiratory health questionnaire derived from the ISAAC (International Study on Asthma and Allergies in Children) was also distributed. Phase II encompassed two evaluations and included 20 DCCs selected from phase I after a cluster analysis (11 from Lisbon and 9 from Oporto, targeting 2287 children). In this phase, data on ventilation, IAQ, thermal comfort parameters, res...

Effect of Public Disclosure on Antibiotic Prescription Rate for Upper Respiratory Tract Infections
Although antibiotics are not required for treating uncomplicated upper respiratory tract infection (URTI), which is mostly viral, they are often prescribed, fueling antibiotic resistance and loss of protective flora. Accordingly, many studies worldwide have tried to decrease inappropriate antibiotic prescribing behavior. (Source: JAMA Internal Medicine)

Reliable typing of variants with a small genome fragment
Middle East Respiratory Syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV; Family Coronaviridae) may cause severe lower respiratory tract infection in humans [1,2]. Camels are considered the likely animal source for zoonotic infection; sporadic human-to-human transmission does occur, but is considered to be inefficient based on currently available data [3–10]. Until recently, new MERS-CoV infections in humans were reported at a steady low rate reaching ∼200 confirmed human cases early 2014. In March and April 2014, however, a surge of MERS-CoV infections occurred mainly in hospitals around Jeddah, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) and United...
