Smoke-measuring smart shirts, breath sound analyzing algorithms, and smart inhalers pave the way of pulmonology and respiratory care into the future. As the number of patients suffering from asthma, COPD, or lung cancer due to rising air pollution and steady smoker-levels will unfortunately not decrease any time soon, we looked around what technology can do to help both patients and caregivers. The results are breathtaking. Attacks of breathlessness are too common The diseases which pulmonologists and respiratory care specialists attempt to fight are among the most common conditions in the modern world – and t...

CONCLUSIONS: PJP on CT differs substantially between RTRs and HIV-positive patients. Physicians should be aware of such differences in order not to delay treatment, particularly in renal transplant recipients. PMID: 31580472 [PubMed - in process]

In this study, researchers studied 438,952 participants in the UK Biobank, who had a total of 24,980 major coronary events - defined as the first occurrence of non-fatal heart attack, ischaemic stroke, or death due to coronary heart disease. They used an approach called Mendelian randomisation, which uses naturally occurring genetic differences to randomly divide the participants into groups, mimicking the effects of running a clinical trial. People with genes associated with lower blood pressure, lower LDL cholesterol, and a combination of both were put into different groups, and compared against those without thes...

For as long as I have been watching progress in tissue engineering, the primary and most important barrier to building organs to order has been the inability to construct vascular networks. A network of capillaries must exist for blood, and thus nutrients and oxygen necessary to cell survival, to reach more than a few millimeters into a tissue. In live tissues, hundreds of minuscule capillaries pass through every square millimeter, considered in cross-section. Replicating this level of capillary density in engineered tissue has yet to be accomplished, with even the more advanced technology demonstrations falling well short...

Admitted patients often have to wait a number of hours for a radiologist to review their chest X-ray, even though it may be marked as urgent or STAT. That’s because way too many are marked as such in most clinics. Pneumothorax, or collapsed lun...

An end-stage renal disease patient underwent renal transplantation 18 years back and was on triple immunosuppression for acute rejection. She presented with left-sided abdominal lump and underwent ultrasound and noncontrast CT scan, which revealed an exophytic mass lesion in atrophic left kidney (16.2 × 13.1 × 14 cm). Baseline 18F-FDG PET/CT revealed a large avid exophytic mass (SUVmax 23, 17 × 14 × 13) in atrophic left kidney, with multiple retroperitoneal lymphadenopathies and a suspicious lung nodule. She underwent left open radical nephrectomy. Follow-up PET/CT after 1 month revealed multiple so...

We examined human lung tissue from COPD patients and normal control subjects, and found a substantial increase in p16-expressing alveolar cells in COPD patients. Using a transgenic mouse deficient for p16, we demonstrated that lungs of mice lacking p16 were structurally and functionally resistant to CS-induced emphysema due to activation of IGF1/Akt regenerative and protective signaling.

The objective of this work is to develop a novel predictive model for the radiological progression pattern at voxel-wise level using only baseline HRCT scans. Mainly, there are two challenges: (a) obtaining a data set of features for region of interest (ROI) on baseline HRCT scans and their follow-up status; and (b) simultaneously selecting important features from high-dimensional space, and optimizing the prediction performance. We resolved the first challenge by implementing a study design and having an expert radiologist contour ROIs at baseline scans, depending on its progression status in follow-up visits. For the sec...
