Students seek to reduce deaths from battlefield injuries that block breathing

Undergrad engineers have designed a low-cost, low-tech device to make it easier for combat medics to create an artificial airway and pump air into the lungs of wounded soldiers.

ConclusionOur series confirmed that CCPRCC has an indolent clinical behavior. When the diagnosis is made in a high-grade renal tumor, it should be carefully re-confirmed using cytogenetic or genomic methods.

A 39-year-old non-smoker woman was admitted in the thoracic oncology unit of the Montpellier Academic Hospital in June 2017 for investigation of multiple lung consolidations, fever, and respiratory failure. She was followed-up since infancy for a cystic fibrosis with cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) mutation ( ΔF508-CFTR). Two years ago, a lung allograft was decided, owing to rapid onset of respiratory function impairment, and she received a bi-pulmonary transplant. According to the donor database, the lung transplant was removed from a 57-year-old woman with a 30 pack-year smoking history.

In this study, we investigated the role of RN in IR-induced lung injury. To study IR-induced cell-death, we simulated LTx procedure using our cell culture model with human lung epithelial (BEAS-2B) cells. After 18 h of cold ischemic time (CIT) followed by reperfusion, caspase-independent cell-death, mitochondrial-ROS production and mitochondrial-membrane permeability were significantly increased. ALLN (calpain inhibitor) or necrostatin-1 (Nec-1; RIPK1 inhibitor) reduced these changes. ALLN altered RIPK1/RIPK3 expression and MLKL phosphorylation, whereas Nec-1 did not change calpain/calpastatin expression. Furthermore, STAT...

AbstractRespiratory-gated18F-fluorodeoxygluocse (18F-FDG) PET/CT has been successfully used to better localize malignancies in the lung or upper abdominal organs. However, clinical usefulness of respiratory-gated18F-FDG PET/CT in detection of fever focus has not been reported yet. A 68-year-old male patient with a history of living donor liver transplantation and biliary stenting was referred for18F-FDG PET/CT due to fever of unknown origin (FUO). To find the accurate fever focus, respiratory-gated and non-gated18F-FDG PET/CT was performed. Respiratory-gated PET/CT readily revealed prominent hypermetabolic lesion in the di...
