Conclusions: IDA significantly increases autoimmune disease risk, particularly in female patients and patients with certain comorbidities. Clinicians should conduct further clinical evaluations and laboratory tests of autoimmune disease in patients with IDA.Plain Language Summary: Little is known about the relationship between iron deficiency and autoimmune disease. By using a national-level database in Taiwan, we noted a meaningful association between iron deficiency anemia (IDA) and later autoimmune disease development. Our study extends the known disease range and recommends that physicians be alert for the occurrence o...

Purpose of review Providing eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), in the form of fish oils, to benefit muscle is an emerging area of interest. The aim of this work was to evaluate the current literature that has assessed muscle mass as an outcome during a fish oil intervention in any chronic disease. Recent findings The vast majority of studies published in the last 3 years (12 of 15) have been conducted in the oncological setting, in patients undergoing treatment for cancers of the gastrointestinal tract, breast, head and neck, lung, cervix, and hematological cancers. Three studies were conducte...

Researchers here consider a very conservative set of interventions known to modestly slow the progression of aging in laboratory species, largely by altering metabolism to upregulate beneficial cellular stress responses. The researchers look through the lens of lung aging, specifically, reviewing the evidence for these therapies to slow the deterioration in lung function and onset of lung disease in older individuals, or to be the basis for treating established lung disease. To date, the most reliable, best-researched way to extend life span is through the practice of calorie restriction (CR), which involves reduc...

Background. Frailty is a clinically recognized syndrome of decreased physiological reserve and a key contributor to suboptimal clinical outcomes in various lung disease groups. Interstitial lung disease (ILD) is fast approaching chronic obstructive pulmonary disease as the number one indication for lung transplantation worldwide. Our aim was to assess whether frailty is a predictor of mortality in patients with ILD referred for lung transplantation in an Australian cohort. Methods. Consecutive patients with ILD referred or on the waiting list for lung transplantation from May 2013 to December 2017 underwent frailty as...

Eosinophils are associated with the onset of chronic respiratory diseases like asthma and COPD. In lung transplantation, patients with increased bronchoalveolar lavage eosinophils demonstrated a worse chronic lung allograft dysfunction (CLAD)-free survival and overall survival. We investigated the association between blood eosinophilia, graft survival and CLAD-free survival after lung transplantation.

Fatigue is a common symptom experienced by patients with chronic heart and lung failure that can lead to adverse health outcomes, such as frailty. To better understand the nature of fatigue in heart and lung failure, a meta-synthesis of qualitative studies was conducted to explore patients ’ experiences of fatigue while living with heart failure (HF) or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Understanding the nature and impact of fatigue in these chronic conditions can guide the evaluation and management of fatigue and inform future development of therapeutic interventions to decrease fatigue and improve quality of life.

Lung volume reduction surgery (LVRS) is a therapeutic option in the treatment of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), the most common indication for lung transplantation (LTx). LVRS prior to LTx is controversial. Single institution studies report contradicting results, and the impact of undergoing LVRS prior to LTx on outcomes after LTx is unclear. We performed a propensity-matched analysis of outcomes after LTx in patients who underwent LVRS using a national database of LTx.
