ABSTRACT Objective: To compare religious coping (RC) in patients with COPD and healthy individuals, as well as to determine whether RC is associated with demographic characteristics, quality of life, depression, and disease severity in the patients with COPD. Methods: This was a cross-sectional study conducted between 2014 and 2016, involving outpatients with moderate to severe COPD seen at one of two hospitals in Fortaleza, Brazil, as well as gender- and age-matched healthy controls. The Brief RCOPE scale assessed RC in all of the participants. We also evaluated the COPD group patients regarding symptoms, quality of life,...

Publication date: Available online 15 October 2019Source: Pharmacology &TherapeuticsAuthor(s): Edward D. Chan, Michael M. Chan, Mallory M. Chan, Paul E. MarikAbstractGlucocorticoids (GC) in all its various forms and formulations are likely one of the most commonly used pharmacologic agents in medicine. Their use can be profoundly therapeutic but are also associated with a myriad of acute and chronic side effects. It is fairly well-accepted in the medical community that GC can be life-saving when used in critically ill patients with severe exacerbations of asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, HIV-associated...

Conclusions Our sequential strategy, using sputum cytology/cytometry to select high-risk individuals for AFB and LDCT, did not lead to a clear stage shift and did not improve the efficiency of lung cancer screening.

We read with great interest the well-conducted clinical trial on C-reactive protein (CRP)-guided antibiotic treatment in admitted patients with acute exacerbations of COPD by Prins et al. [1]. This is a study showing that the use of CRP can potentially assist clinicians in making more prudent use of antibiotics in patients with severe exacerbations, as has also been found in the primary care setting [2]. One of the striking results is, however, the disturbingly high rate of treatment failure observed of approximately 24% at 10 days and 45% at 30 days, as pointed out in the accompanying editorial [3], and consiste...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewThis review focuses on the implementation of genomic discoveries associated with smoking behaviors and smoking-related illnesses to improve prevention efforts and smoking cessation.Recent FindingsLarge-scale studies have discovered genomic variation that contributes to smoking heaviness and smoking cessation. Variation in theα5 nicotinic acetylcholine receptor subunit (CHRNA5) and the primary nicotine metabolizing gene (CYP2A6) strongly contribute to smoking behaviors, lung cancer, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. The analytic and clinical validity of these genes is clearly establis...

AbstractThis systematic review aimed to synthesise multimorbidity profiling literature to identify replicable and clinically meaningful groupings of multimorbidity. We searched six electronic databases (Medline, EMBASE, PsycINFO, CINAHL, Scopus, and Web of Science) for articles reporting multimorbidity profiles. The identified profiles were synthesised with multidimensional scaling, stratified by type of statistical analysis used in the derivation of profiles. The 51 studies that met inclusion criteria reported results of 98 separate analyses of multimorbidity profiling, with a total of 407 multimorbidity profiles identifi...
