Respiratory diseases: Lung airway-on-a-chip
Nature Reviews Drug Discovery 15, 86 (2016). doi:10.1038/nrd.2016.7 Author: Sarah Crunkhorn The development of novel therapies for chronic respiratory diseases has been limited by the lack of appropriate preclinical models. Now, Benam et al. have engineered a human lung-derived 'small airway-on-a-chip' that contains a differentiated, mucociliary bronchiolar epithelium composed of cells isolated from healthy subjects (Source: Nature Reviews Drug Discovery)

Involvement of the Nervous System Following Experimental Infection with Pasteurella multocida B:2 in Buffalo (Bubalus bubalis): a Clinicopathological Study
In this study, nine buffalo calves of 8 months old were distributed into three groups. Animals of Group 1 and 2 were inoculated orally and subcutaneously with 10 ml of 1×1012 cfu/ml of P. multocida B:2, respectively, while animals of Group 3 were inoculated orally with 10 ml of phosphate buffer saline as a control. All calves in Group 1 and Group 3 were euthanised after 504 h (21 day) post-infection, while calves in Group 2 had to euthanise after 12 h post-infection as they develop sever clinical signs of HS. Significant differences were found in Group 2 in the mean scores of clinical signs, gross and histopathological ch...

Congenital rubella syndrome with death from interstitial pneumonia
We report the case of a patient with CRS who died of respiratory failure caused by interstitial pneumonia. Thrombocytopenia had been present for approximately 1 month after birth, and the patient presented with sudden lung hemorrhage at 64 days old. Thereafter, respiratory condition deteriorated, and the patient died at 107 days old. Given that infants with CRS who have thrombocytopenia and interstitial pneumonia have a high risk of death, they should be monitored carefully for potential complications.

Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy (SBRT) with Lower Doses for Selected Patients with Stage I Non-small-cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC)
This study investigated the outcomes after lower dose SBRT (BED < 90 Gy) in 46 patients with stage I NSCLC, who were aged ≥70 years or in reduced general condition. Local control rates at 1, 2, and 3 years were 100, 95, and 95 %, respectively. Rates of freedom from distant progression were 83, 63, and 54 %, and survival rates were 77, 57, and 36 %, respectively. Seventeen patients died during the follow-up, 11 (65 %) from distant progression of NSCLC, and six (35 %) from non-malignant causes. No patient developed radiation-induced pneumonitis. Thus, SBRT with BED <90 Gy resulted in excellent local contro...

Pathomechanisms of Congenital Cystic Lung Diseases: Focus on Congenital Cystic Adenomatoid Malformation and Pleuropulmonary Blastoma
It is well established that a number of birth defects are associated with improper formation of the respiratory tract. Important progress was made in the identification of components of the regulatory networks controlling lung morphogenesis. They comprise a variety of soluble factors, receptors, transcription factors, and miRNAs. However, the underlying molecular mechanisms remain unsolved and fundamental questions, such as those related to lung branching are still unanswered. Congenital cystic lung diseases consist of a heterogeneous group of rare lung diseases mainly detected prenatally and characterized by airway dilata...

A case of familial hot tub lung
We report the first case of familial hot tub lung appearing simultaneously in a husband and wife. Our case supports the consideration that hot tub lung is a hypersensitivity pneumonitis rather than an infectious lung disease. It also suggests that the state of hot tub lung changes seasonally depending on temperature variations, in a manner similar to summer-type hypersensitivity pneumonitis. This case demonstrates similarities between hot tub lung and summer-type hypersensitivity pneumonitis in regards to familial occurrence and seasonal changes in the disease state.

Change in Pediatric Functional Classification During Treatment and Morbidity and Mortality in Children with Pulmonary Hypertension
Abstract Despite advances in therapy, outcomes for children with pulmonary hypertension remain poor. We sought to assess the validity of a pediatric-specific functional classification system for pulmonary hypertension (PH) in a heterogeneous population of children with PH diagnosed by echocardiogram or cardiac catheterization. A single-center, retrospective study of 65 infants and children with PH was performed. Pediatric Functional Class (FC) at diagnosis, at last visit, and change in FC over time were evaluated for their association with mortality and PH-associated morbidity in univariate, time-to-event, and mul...

Systematic Review of Inhaled Bronchodilator and Corticosteroid Therapies in Infants with Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia: Implications and Future Directions
Conclusion Whether inhaled bronchodilators and inhaled corticosteroids improve long-term outcomes in BPD remains unclear. Literature regarding these therapies mostly addresses evolving BPD. There appears to be heterogeneity in treatment responses, and may be related to varying modes of administration. Further research is needed to evaluate inhaled therapies in infants with severe BPD. Such investigations should focus on appropriate definitions of disease and subject selection, timing of therapies, and new drugs, devices and delivery methods as compared to traditional methods across all modalities of respiratory support, in...

Menthol-induced bleaching rapidly and effectively provides experimental aposymbiotic sea anemones (Aiptasia sp.) for symbiosis investigations [METHODS [amp ] TECHNIQUES]
Jennifer L. Matthews, Ashley E. Sproles, Clinton A. Oakley, Arthur R. Grossman, Virginia M. Weis, and Simon K. Davy Experimental manipulation of the symbiosis between cnidarians and photosynthetic dinoflagellates (Symbiodinium spp.) is crucial to advancing the understanding of the cellular mechanisms involved in host–symbiont interactions, and overall coral reef ecology. The anemone Aiptasia sp. is a model for cnidarian–dinoflagellate symbiosis, and notably it can be rendered aposymbiotic (i.e. dinoflagellate-free) and re-infected with a range of Symbiodinium types. Various methods exist for generating aposymbi...

Deadly pressure pneumothorax after withdrawal of misplaced feeding tube: a case report
Conclusions The indications for insertion of nasogastric feeding tubes are many and the procedure is considered harmless; however, if the tube is misplaced there is good reason to be cautious on removal as this can unmask puncture of the pleura eliciting pneumothorax and, as this case report shows, result in an ultimately deadly tension pneumothorax.

Chronic Hypoxia Accentuates Dysanaptic Lung Growth.
CONCLUSION: Our findings suggest that the adult lung did not increase lung volume later in life by expansion of an existing number of alveoli, but rather from increased alveolarization early in life. In addition, chronic hypoxia accentuates dysanaptic lung growth by increasing the lung parenchyma, but not the airways.

Proton channels and renal hypertensive injury: a key piece of the Dahl salt-sensitive rat puzzle?
Abstract Hv1 is a voltage-gated proton channel highly expressed in phagocytic cells where it participates in the NADPH oxidase dependent respiratory burst. We have recently identified Hv1 as a novel renal channel, expressed in the renal medullary thick ascending limb that appears to importantly contribute to the pathogenesis of renal hypertensive injury in the Dahl salt-sensitive rat model. The purpose of this review is to describe the experimental approaches that we have undertaken to identify the source of excess reactive oxygen species production in the renal outer-medulla of Dahl salt-sensitive rats and the res...

Nerve conduction studies in lower limbs of elite Nepalese football players: an insight into neural adaptations.
CONCLUSION: Increased tibial CMAP amplitude and decreased CMAP duration in players suggest excitation of more number of motor units and higher synchronicity of muscle fibers' discharge than in controls respectively. Higher amplitude can also be attributed to increase in muscle fiber size and/or efficiency of neuromuscular transmission. Increased synchronicity indirectly reflects narrow range of conduction velocity among tibial neurons. The adaptive changes in somatic nerves need more crucial research for exact identification of sites and the structures responsible. PMID: 26842865 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (So...

Grain Size Distribution and Health Risk Assessment of Metals in Outdoor Dust in Chengdu, Southwestern China.
Abstract A total of 27 outdoor dust samples from roads, parks, and high spots were collected and analyzed to investigate the contamination of 11 metals (Cr, Mn, Co, Ni, Cu, Zn, As, Sr, Cd, Sb, and Pb) in Chengdu, China. The results showed that the samples from the high spots exhibited the highest heavy metal level compared with those from the roads and the parks, except for Ni, Cu, and Pb. The dust was classified into five grain size fractions. The mean loads of each grain size fraction of 11 determined metals displayed similar distribution, and the contribution of median size (63-125, 125-250, 250-500 μm) fracti...

N-acetylcysteine in COPD: why, how, and when?
Abstract Oxidants have long been recognized to have an important role in the pathogenesis of COPD, and in this cigarette smoke has a strong responsibility, because it generates a conspicuous amount of oxidant radicals able to modify the structure of the respiratory tract and to enhance several mechanisms that sustain lung inflammation in COPD. In fact, oxidative stress is highly increased in COPD and natural antioxidant capacities, mainly afforded by reduced glutathione, are often overcome. Thus an exogenous supplementation of antioxidant compounds is mandatory to at least partially counteract the oxidative stres...
