Real-time multi-signal frequency tracking with a bank of notch filters to estimate the respiratory rate from the ECG
In this study we propose an algorithm based on short length-3 FIR notch filters to estimate the instantaneous frequency of a signal at each sample, in a real-time manner and with very low delay. The output powers of a bank of the above-mentioned filters are used in a recursive weighting scheme to estimate the dominant frequency of the input. This scheme has been extended to process multiple inputs containing a common frequency by introducing an additional weighting scheme upon the inputs. The algorithm was tested on synthetic ...

Diversity of Human and Macaque Airway Immune Cells at Baseline and During Tuberculosis Infection.
Abstract Immune cells of the distal airways serve as "first responders" of host immunity the airborne pathogen Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb). Mtb infection of cynomolgus macaques recapitulates the range of human outcomes from clinically silent latent tuberculosis infection (LTBI) to active tuberculosis (TB) of varying degrees of severity. To further advance the application of this model to human studies, we compared profiles of bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) cells of humans and cynomolgus macaques before and after Mtb infection. A simple gating strategy effectively defined BAL T-cell and phagocyte populations in ...

Living with asthma and chronic obstructive airways disease: Using technology to support self-management - An overview.
Abstract Long-term respiratory conditions such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are common, and cause high levels of morbidity and mortality. Supporting self-management is advocated for both asthma and increasingly so for COPD, and there is growing interest in the potential role of a range of new technologies, such as smartphone apps, the web or telehealth to facilitate and promote self-management in these conditions. Treatment goals for both asthma and COPD include aiming to control symptoms, maintain activities, achieve the best possible quality of life and minimize risks of exacerbatio...

α4-containing nicotinic receptors contribute to the effects of perinatal nicotine on ventilatory and metabolic responses of neonatal mice to ambient cooling.
Abstract Among numerous studies, perinatal nicotine exposure (PN) has had variable effects on respiratory control in the neonatal period. The effects of acute nicotine exposure on breathing are largely mediated by α4-containing nicotine acetylcholine receptors (nAChRs). These receptors are also involved in thermoregulatory responses induced by both acetylcholine and nicotine. We therefore hypothesized that α4 - containing nAChRs would mediate the effects of PN on the metabolic and ventilatory responses of neonates to modest cold exposure. WT and α4 knock-out (KO) mice were exposed to 6 mg kg(-1)day(-1) nicotine...

[Radiotherapy of breast cancer].
Abstract In breast cancer, radiotherapy is an essential component of the treatment. After conservative surgery for an infiltrating carcinoma, radiotherapy must be systematically performed, regardless of the characteristics of the disease, because it decreases the rate of local recurrence and by this way, specific mortality. Partial breast irradiation could not be proposed routinely but only in very selected and informed patients. For ductal carcinoma in situ, adjuvant radiotherapy must be also systematically performed after lumpectomy. After mastectomy, chest wall irradiation is required for pT3-T4 tumours and if ...

Therapeutic Approach to Adult Fibrotic Lung Diseases.
Abstract Among the interstitial lung diseases (ILD), idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), chronic hypersensitivity pneumonitis and fibrotic connective tissue disease related ILD are associated with a worse prognosis with death occurring both from respiratory failure and serious associated co-morbidities. The recent development and approval of the antifibrotic agents nintedanib and pirfenidone, both of which reduced the rate of decline in lung function in patients with IPF in clinical trials, offer hope that it may be possible to alter the increased mortality associated with IPF. Although chronic hypersensitivity p...

Translational Research in Pleural Infection and Beyond.
Abstract The incidence of pleural infection has been rising in recent years. Intrapleural therapy with tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) and deoxyribonuclease (DNase) has significantly reduced the need of surgery and its impact on clinical care is rising worldwide. Efforts are underway to optimize the delivery regime and establish the short and longer term effects of this therapy. The complex interactions of bacterial infection within the pleura with inflammatory responses and clinical interventions (antibiotics and tPA/DNase) require further studies to improve future treatment options. Intrapleural instillation ...

Halomonas lutescens sp. nov., a halophilic bacterium isolated from Qinghai Lake sediment.
Abstract A novel Gram-stain-negative, aerobic, rod-shaped and moderately halophilic bacterium, designated as strain Q1UT, was isolated from a sediment sample collected from Qinghai Lake, China. Strain Q1UT formed yellowish colonies and grew at temperatures of 2-37 °C (optimum 30-33 °C), at pH 6.0-9.0 (optimum pH 7.0) and in the presence of 0-20% (w/v) NaCl (optimum 7.5%). The major cellular fatty acids were C18:17c (58.6%), C16:17c and/or C16:16c (14.8%) and C16:0 (10.1%).
