Exosomes isolated from plasma of lung transplant recipients (LTxRs) with bronchiolitis obliterans syndrome (BOS) contain human leukocyte antigens and lung self-antigens (SAgs), K-alpha 1 Tubulin (K α1T) and Collagen-V (Col-V). The aim was to determine the use of circulating exosomes with lung SAgs as a biomarker for BOS.
(Intermountain Medical Center) A new study at Intermountain Primary Children's Hospital in Salt Lake City has found that follow-up appointments for hospitalized children treated for childhood bronchitis are often not necessary, and that switching from mandatory to 'as-needed' follow-up care can save families from unnecessary medical care and expense - and may help guide treatment during the COVID-19 pandemic.
This randomized clinical trial assesses whether as-needed posthospitalization follow-up is noninferior to scheduled follow-up for reducing anxiety in parents of children hospitalized for bronchiolitis.
To help mitigate the outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), clinicians are deferring a large number of outpatient health service visits and shifting many of them from in-person to virtual (eg, by telephone or video conference). As COVID-19 becomes less prevalent and clinics reopen, patients and clinicians will continue to weigh the risks and benefits of face-to-face outpatient health care encounters.
Conclusions: A diagnosis of HP should be considered in pediatric lung biopsies with granulomatous interstitial and peribronchial inflammation, if infectious etiologies are excluded. Integration of clinical, radiological, and laboratory findings can facilitate a timely diagnosis. PMID: 32619123 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSION: Besides typical clinical features, PIBO was often observed as first presentation of pediatric PCD in China. High HYDIN variant frequency and an association of DNAH14 with PCD were observed, demonstrating PCD genetic heterogeneity in China and expanding the PCD genotypic spectrum.

Authors: De C.o G, Cavarra E, Bartalesi B, Lungarella G, Lucattelli M Abstract COPD can manifest itself with different clinical phenotypes characterized by different disease progression and response to therapy. Although a remarkable number of studies have been carried out, little is known about the mechanisms underlying phenotypes that could guide the development of viable future therapies. Several murine strains mirror some human phenotypes after smoke exposure. It was of interest to investigate in these strains whether different pattern of activation of macrophages, and their distribution in lungs, is associated ...
CONCLUSION: Preoperative DSAs and PRAs are related to worse outcomes after lung transplantation. DSAs and PRAs should be considered when selecting lung transplant recipients, and recipients who have preoperative DSAs with high MFI values and high PRA levels should be monitored closely after lung transplantation.

Abstract Background and Objectives: Recent literature suggests that lung ultrasound might have a role in the diagnosis and management of bronchiolitis. The aim of the study is to evaluate the relationship between an ultrasound score and the clinical progression of bronchiolitis: need for supplemental oxygen, duration of oxygen therapy and hospital stay. Materials and Methods: This was a prospective observational single-center study, conducted in a pediatric unit during the 2017-2018 epidemic periods. All consecutive patients admitted with clinical signs of acute bronchiolitis, but without the need for supplemental...
