In conclusion, the present study suggested that BRCA1 and FANCD2 expression, and FANCD2 ubiquitination levels, may be considered of novel potential prognostic value in patients with BC. PMID: 30881493 [PubMed]

This study evaluated the use of and access to different services involved in the care of patients with arterial hypertension in the Public Health System in the municipality of S ão Paulo, Brazil. This is an ecological study that addressed the magnitude, trend and relationships of outpatient procedures linked to the arterial hypertension care Data were retrieved from the SIA/SUS and the Estabsus from the Municipal Health Secretariat, and were processed with PostgreSQL relat ional database linking the different information by the indicators chosen and analyzed by territories. The statistical analysis were performed by...

CONCLUSIONS: The results of the study suggest that there is high prevalence of NCD risk factors in patients with CMD. Hypertension is more common in males while obesity and inadequate physical activity is more common in females. NCD risk factor screening and management, health education should be integrated in CPS.

Anemia is prevalent not only in COPD but also in pulmonary hypertension. We postulated that anemia may have certain prognostic value in COPD concomitant with PH due to COPD (COPD-PH).

Conclusion It’s important for prehospital providers to be able to differentiate metabolic disturbances in the setting of respiratory distress and not be fooled into thinking tachypnea always has a respiratory cause. The physical exam and adjuncts such as end-tidal capnography can assist in the prehospital diagnosis. A COPD exacerbation generally presents as diminished lung sounds, wheezing on exhalation, and a prolonged expiratory phase. Here, a patient will attempt to compensate for the inflammation and mucus accumulation associated with the destruction and narrowing of peripheral airways and a subsequent lack of av...

Abstract Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a debilitating inflammatory lung disease associated with cigarette smoking and is third leading cause of death worldwide. With the recent emergence of genome wide association studies (GWAS), the identification of multiple COPD susceptibility genes has enhanced and expanded our understanding of the pathogenic mechanisms associated with this debilitating lung disease. An example of such a pathogenic mechanism is the role of iron metabolism in the onset and progression of COPD. Historic observations of iron dysregulation in COPD can now be enlightened by the re...

Aims: To determine the predictive factors of acute exacerbation (AE) occurring within 90 days of discharge for AECOPD.Methods: We retrospectively studied patients with AECOPD admitted to our hospital between 1990 and 2014. We compared 2 groups of patients: G1: patients who had an AECOPD within 90 days post hospital-admitted COPD exacerbations (299 cases,27%); G2: AE>90 days of discharge (820 cases,73%).Results: The study included 1119 COPD patients (mean age 67±10years, 97%males). Patients of G1 are more symptomatic than G2 (mMRC≥2: 78% vs 59% in G2,p

Publication date: Available online 8 August 2016 Source:Respiratory Investigation Author(s): Alexandru Corlateanu, Serghei Covantev, Alexander G. Mathioudakis, Victor Botnaru, Nikolaos Siafakas The classical definition of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) as a lung condition characterized by irreversible airway obstruction is outdated. The systemic involvement in patients with COPD, as well as the interactions between COPD and its comorbidities, justify the description of chronic systemic inflammatory syndrome. The pathogenesis of COPD is closely linked with aging, as well as with cardiovascular, endocrine, mus...

Iron deficiency (ID) might augment chronic pulmonary hypertension in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). This observational study investigates the association between ID and systolic pulmonary artery pressure estimated by echocardiography in non-anaemic COPD outpatients.

Introduction: Patients with bronchiectasis (BR) often suffer from concurrent comorbidities, yet their nature, prevalence and impact on disease severity and mortality is poorly understood. We estimated the prevalence of comorbidities in BR patients to determine their prognostic value on disease severity and mortality.Methods: A retrospective cohort analysis of 498 BR patients in the UK and Ireland (median follow-up 36 months) was performed. Comorbidity diagnoses were based on standardised definitions obtained on full review of electronic records, prescriptions and investigator definitions. Logistic regression was used to ca...
