Among critically ill patients in the intensive care unit (ICU), complications are frequent, including stress ulcers in the upper gastrointestinal tract. To help prevent the development of ulcers, antagonism of gastric acid (with antacids historically) or inhibition of the production of acid (with histamine-2 receptor blockers more recently) were implemented as part of routine critical care. The introduction of proton pump inhibitors, with data demonstrating improved ulcer prevention and recovery compared with histamine-2 receptor blockers in non –critically ill patients, led many physicians who provide care for criti...

This study is registered with ClinicalTrials.gov (NCT02108964); enrolment to phase 1 is complete and the study is ongoing.FindingsBy Aug 31, 2017, 180 patients (116 [64%] women; median age 60 years (52–69); 116 [64%] with ECOG performance status 1) received nazartinib across seven dose levels: 75 mg (n=17), 100 mg (n=38), 150 mg (n=73), 200 mg (n=8), 225 mg (n=28), 300 mg (n=5), and 350 mg (n=11). Seven dose-limiting toxicities were observed in six (3%) patients who received 150 mg, 225 mg, or 350 mg nazartinib once daily. Although the maximum tolerated dose was not met, the recommended phase 2 dose was declared as 1...

ConclusionsSupplementation of mouse diets with Omega-3 fatty acids improved survival, bacterial invasion in the blood and lungs as well as decreased overall lung tissue inflammation and cell death when compared to the Omega-6 supplemented diets. Translation of these findings in humans may improve outcomes of patients at risk for pneumonia.

ConclusionCommunity and co-worker contacts are important sources of viral respiratory illness in healthcare personnel while exposure to patients with recognized respiratory infections is not associated. The comparatively low risk associated with direct patient contact may reflect transmission related to asymptomatic patients or unrecognized infections.
