Bronchiolitis obliterans syndrome (BOS) is a major limitation in the long-term survival of lung transplant recipients (LTRs)1-3 with prevalence and mortality rates exceeding 50% and 40%, respectively.4 BOS is one of the most common causes of death after the first year of transplant5 and it is also associated with the development of delayed graft function in LTRs.6-8 Acute rejection is a known major contributor to BOS however; investigation into other risk factors has been stymied, due to limited and conflicting data.

Emergence and re-emergence of respiratory virus infections represent a significant threat to global public health, as they occur seasonally and less frequently (such in the case of influenza virus) as pandemic infections. Some of these viruses have been in the human population for centuries and others had recently emerged as a public health problem. Influenza viruses have been affecting the human population for a long time now; however, their ability to rapidly evolve through antigenic drift and antigenic shift causes the emergence of new strains. A recent example of these events is the avian-origin H7N9 influenza virus ou...

Conclusions: EV-D68 circulated widely in Gipuzkoa during 2016 and was associated with severe ARI. In children with severe ARI of unknown etiology, the presence of EV-D68 should be considered.

Objective To evaluate the diagnostic value of function volume/morphological volume ratio calculated from ventilation/perfusion single-photon emission computed tomography/computed tomography in distinguishing the lungs with bronchiolitis obliterans syndrome (BOS) from the lungs without this syndrome after lung transplantation and to assess its relationship with spirometry parameters. Materials and methods We retrospectively identified 84 consecutive lung transplant recipients and 13 donors who underwent ventilation/perfusion single-photon emission computed tomography/computed tomography. Differences in the function vol...

Conclusions: ECLS is an essential tool in the armamentarium of any lung transplant program treating iPAH with a potential of bridge patients to transplantation and to overcome graft dysfunction after LTx. Despite utilization of ECLS in the management of iPAH, the outcomes in terms of primary graft failure and survival remain poor compared to patients with other diagnoses. PMID: 31183172 [PubMed]

BOSTON (CBS) — When your child is coughing, it can be hard, even for a doctor, to distinguish between a cold or something more serious but researchers in Australia were able to reliably pinpoint the cause of a child’s cough using a smartphone app. Kids cough all the time, often from the common cold or seasonal allergies but sometimes it’s more serious like pneumonia. Kids may be misdiagnosed or treated unnecessarily with antibiotics or other medications because it’s often hard to tell what their coughing is about. Researchers were able to train speech recognition technology to recognize different co...

This study seeks to define the indications and the economic impact of the use of antibiotics in infants hospitalized due to bronchiolitis during 2010-2017. There were 459 children with bronchiolitis, median age of 2.2 months, 390 infections with respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), and 69 were non-RSV. Twenty two percent of all these children (102/459) required a workup toward urinary tract co-infections (UTI). A control group, consisting of 8,456 children without bronchiolitis, was created to assess UTI frequency in the general population. We found that 16.0% (73/459) children with bronchiolitis received antibiotics; 6...
