Authors: Zhao M, Li H, Fan L, Ma Y, Gong H, Lai W, Fang Q, Hu Z Abstract The first nano-platform commercialized as a drug delivery system was a liposomal formulation. The application of liposome technology resolved the issues of paclitaxel (PTX) insolubility and eliminated the use of solvents causing toxic side-effects, which enabled to apply higher drug doses leading to an enhanced drug efficacy. The growth-inhibitory activity of liposome-encapsulated PTX was retained in vitro against a variety of tumor cell. To investigate the drug efficacy in the system biological level, quantitative proteomic analysis was emplo...

Authors: Ius F, Tudorache I, Warnecke G Abstract During recent years, continuous technological innovation has provoked an increase of extracorporeal life support (ECLS) use for perioperative cardiopulmonary support in lung transplantation. Initial results were disappointing, due to ECLS-specific complications and high surgical risk of the supported patients. However, the combination of improved patient management, multidisciplinary team work and standardization of ECLS protocols has recently yielded excellent results in several case series from high-volume transplant centres. Therein, it was demonstrated that, alth...

Conclusions: Our initial experience proved that this two-step surgical approach combining median sternotomy and subsequent posterolateral thoracotomy was safe and feasible for locally advanced lung cancers requiring both lung resection and SVC reconstruction. PMID: 30233856 [PubMed]

WhelanAirway complications after lung transplantation are well described and can lead to significant morbidity and mortality. Treatment options for anastomotic dehiscence include expectant management, placement of endobronchial stents, or surgical repair. The use of fibrin sealant instilled by bronchoscopy to seal a dehiscence has not been well described. Our patient is a 57-year-old man who underwent orthotropic bilateral lung tr...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewConnective tissue disease-related interstitial lung disease (CTD-ILD) previously was a relative contraindication to lung transplantation primarily due to extra-pulmonary involvement of the disease. Recent published information focusing on the diagnosis and management of the extra-pulmonary complexities associated with CTD-ILD that challenge the success of lung transplantation indicate similar outcomes when compared to idiopathic causes of interstitial lung disease. Recent literature examining appropriate wait-listing criteria, disease management, and outcomes after lung transplantation are discusse...

In a tale of two studies, it appears artificial intelligence is helping researchers analyze cells in ways that weren't possible before. In one study, published this week in Nature Methods, scientists at the Allen Institute in Seattle, WA used machine learning to train computers to see parts of the cell that the human eye cannot easily distinguish. Using 3D images of fluorescently labeled cells, the team taught computers to find structures inside living cells without fluorescent labels, using only black and white images generated by an inexpensive technique known as brightfield microscopy. Fluorescence microscop...
