Germ line variation in nucleotide excision repair genes and lung cancer risk in smokers.
Authors: Sakoda LC, Loomis MM, Doherty JA, Julianto L, Barnett MJ, Neuhouser ML, Thornquist MD, Weiss NS, Goodman GE, Chen C Abstract Since nucleotide excision repair (NER) is primarily responsible for detecting and removing bulky DNA lesions induced by tobacco smoke in the respiratory tract, single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in NER protein-encoding genes may influence lung cancer risk, particularly in smokers. Studies testing this hypothesis have produced inconsistent results, with most analyzing a few SNPs in relatively small population samples. In a study nested in the Beta- Carotene and Retinol Efficacy Tr...

Survival analysis and risk factors for mortality in connective tissue disease-associated pneumomediastinum
Abstract The aim of this study was to analyze the characteristics of patients with diffuse connective tissue diseases (CTDs) complicated by pneumomediastinum and identify the risk factors associated with increased mortality in these patients. Twenty-eight patients with CTD-associated pneumomediastinum, who were admitted to our hospital from January 1997 to June 2012, were prospectively studied. Their demographic characteristics, time to death, and potential risk factors were assessed. Survival curves were depicted by the Kaplan–Meier method. Univariate and multivariate survival analyses were performed by Co...

Physiologic findings in children previously ventilator dependent at home due to bronchopulmonary dysplasia
ConclusionsExtreme prematurity associated with severe BPD requiring home ventilator support carries significant risks of morbidity.

Low-Dose Clarithromycin Therapy Modulates Th17 Response In Non-Cystic Fibrosis Bronchiectasis Patients
Conclusions Our results argue for a reduction of both systemic and local Th17 response after prophylactic, low-dose clarithromycin administration in patients with non-CF bronchiectasis, suggestive of a potential anti-inflammatory and/or immunomodulatory action. (Source: Lung)

Association Analysis of Melanocortin 3 Receptor Polymorphisms with the Risk of Pulmonary Tuberculosis
Conclusions The C allele of rs11575886 could be a risk allele for the pulmonary TB by affecting the binding of TF. Our findings suggest that polymorphisms in MC3R might be one of genetic factors for the risk of pulmonary TB development in Korean subjects. (Source: Lung)

Current options in the treatment of mitochondrial diseases.
Authors: Scarpelli M, Cotelli MS, Mancuso M, Tomelleri G, Tonin P, Baronchelli C, Vielmi V, Gregorelli V, Todeschini A, Padovani A, Filosto M Abstract Mitochondrial diseases (MD) are disorders caused by an impairment of the mitochondrial respiratory chain function. They are usually progressive, isolated or multi-system diseases and have variable times of onset. Because mitochondria have their own DNA (mtDNA), MD can be caused by mutations in both mtDNA and nuclear DNA (nDNA). The complexity of genetic control of mitochondrial function is in part responsible for the intra- and inter-familiar clinical heterogeneity o...

The utility of polysomnography for the diagnosis of NREM parasomnias: an observational study over 4 years of clinical practice
Abstract Polysomnography (PSG) is considered the gold standard for diagnosis of non-rapid eye movement (NREM) parasomnias, however its diagnostic yield has been rarely reported. We aimed to assess the diagnostic value of polysomnography in different categories of patients with suspected NREM parasomnia and define variables that can affect the outcome. 124 adults referred for polysomnography for suspected NREM parasomnia were retrospectively identified and divided into clinical categories based on their history. Each polysomnography was analysed for features of NREM parasomnia or different sleep disorders and for p...

Respirophasic Forward Diastolic Flow through the Pulmonary Valve in Massive Right Ventricular Infarction
We report a case illustrating Fontan physiology in massive right ventricular infarction. The infarcted right ventricle acted as a passive conduit between the right atrium and the pulmonary artery, and the flow was largely driven by respiratory variations in intrathoracic pressure. During inspiration, the pulmonary valve remained open throughout the whole cardiac cycle and the right ventricular outflow was almost entirely antegrade both in systole and diastole.
