Pulmonx has some additional ammunition in its bid to get its severe emphysema treatment valve FDA approval. The Redwood City, CA-based company released positive one-year-results from the LIBERATE pivotal trial of the Zephyr Endobronchial Valve, which shows the study met all primary and secondary endpoints in treating emphysema patients. Emphysema falls under the umbrella of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and is characterized by damage to the walls of the lungs between the air sacs, according to the National Emphysema Foundation. This damage causes the sacs to lose their shape and often, the destruction of tho...

The Trans-NIH GeroScience Interest Group (GSIG), cordially invites you to its spring seminar, featuring Dr. GR Scott Budinger. Dr. Budinger is the Chief of Pulmonary and Critical Care in the Department of Medicine at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine and is the Ernest S. Bazley Professor of Airway Diseases and a Professor of Medicine (Pulmonary and Critical Care) and of Cell and Molecular Biology. The Budinger laboratory is interested in understanding how aging biology intersects with the age-related risk of acute and chronic lung diseases. The Budinger lab is testing whether a decline in the function of ...

Peter Moore Our laboratory has serially reported on the virologic and immunopathologic features of a cohort of experimental feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV)-infected cats for more than eight years. At 8.09 years post infection (PI), one of these animals entered the terminal stage of infection, characterized by undulating hyperthermia, progressive anorexia, weight loss, and pancytopenia; the animal was not responsive to therapeutic interventions, necessitating euthanasia six weeks later (8.20 years PI). Subsequent analyses indicated that neoplastic lymphocytes infiltrated multiple cervical lymph nodes and a band-li...

Interventional pulmonology is an innovative branch of pulmonary medicine that uses minimally invasive diagnostic and therapeutic approaches to airway, parenchymal and pleural disease. The authors review recent high impact trials including randomized trials describing the use of endobronchial coils and valves in the management of severe emphysema. We also present novel approaches to the palliation of malignant and benign pleural effusion including increasing the frequency of drainage and instillation of talc via tunneled pleural catheters.

This study was the largest, longest study to use a less-invasive or minimally-invasive technique using these one-way valves,” Dr. Criner said. Dr. Criner said that after one year, patients treated with the Zephyr valves were significnatly more likely to show improvements in lung function, measured as forced expiratory volume in one second, or FEV1. “Patients that were treated had about a three times greater likelihood of having significant improvement in FEV1, more than 15% in 45% of the treated group compared to 11% of the control,” Dr. Criner said. Additionally, patients treated with the Zephyr reported...

Cortical folding is thought to remain relatively invariant after birth. Therefore, differences seen in psychiatric disorders have been proposed as early biomarkers or used as intermediate phenotypes in imaging genetics studies. Anorexia nervosa (AN) is associated with drastic and rapid structural brain alterations and may thus be an ideal model disorder to study environmental influences on cortical folding.

Abstract A rare case combining pneumothorax, pneumomediastinum, pneumopericardium, pneumoperitoneum, pneumorrhachis, air in retroperitoneum and extensive subcutaneous emphysema simultaneously in a severely anorectic male with BMI 9.2 (22.8 kg) and multiple vomitings is presented. This unusual condition was treated successfully with conservative medical approach in a specialized somatic unit for anorexia nervosa.

A 25-year-old woman presented to the emergency department after 17 h of persistent epigastric pain, severe abdominal distention and profuse vomiting. The vomitus had no blood or bile. No passing of stool or gas was evident after onset of symptoms. She had a 10-year history of untreated anorexia nervosa. The patient was afebrile, agitated and refused abdominal palpations upon physical examination. Full blood count, general biochemistry, amylase and lipase results were unremarkable. Abdominal X-ray showed gastroptosis, gastric emphysema and retention causing bowel displacement and obstruction and intestinal pneumatosis (Figu...
