CONCLUSION: The presence of solid and branched sputum should suggest fungal bronchitis and is an indication for bronchoscopy for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. Early management is important to avoid complications. PMID: 30429094 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Smoke masks. Eye drops. No outdoor exercise. This is how Californians are trying to cope with wildfires choking the state, but experts say an increase in serious health problems may be almost inevitable for vulnerable residents as the disasters become more commonplace. Research suggests children, the elderly and those with existing health problems are most at risk. Short-term exposure to wildfire smoke can worsen existing asthma and lung disease, leading to emergency room treatment or hospitalization, studies have shown. Increases in doctor visits or hospital treatment for respiratory infections, bronchitis and pneumonia i...

Authors: Majdalany BS, Khayat M, Sanogo ML, Saad WE, Khaja MS Abstract Plastic bronchitis is a poorly understood and uncommon diagnosis, arising from multiple etiologies. Traditional treatment consists of steroids and vasodilators, with thoracic duct embolization emerging as a new procedural therapy. Herein, abnormal lymphatic vessels were noted on lymphangiography in an adult patient with debilitating plastic bronchitis, but anterograde lymphatic access was not feasible due to the patient's morbid obesity and non-visualization of retroperitoneal lymphatics. After trans-venous thoracic duct access could not be esta...

Abdul-Careem The in ovo delivery of cytosine-guanosine (CpG) oligodeoxynucleotides (ODNs) protects chickens against many bacterial and viral infections, by activating the toll-like receptor (TLR)21 signaling pathway. Although the delivery of CpG ODNs in ovo at embryo day (ED) 18 has been shown to reduce infectious bronchitis virus (IBV) loads in embryonic chicken lungs pre-hatch, whether in ovo delivered CpG ODNs are capable of protecting chickens against a post-hatch challenge is unknown. Thus, our objectives were to determine the protective effect of the in ovo delivery of CpG ODNs at ED 18 against IBV infection enc...

The objective of this study was to compare the efficacy and safety of botulinum toxin type A versus baclofen in spasticity. MATERIAL AND METHODS A total of 336 patients who had spasticity caused by spinal cord injury were enrolled in a randomized (in 1: 1: 1: ratio) for placebo, controlled trial. Patients had received baclofen (BA group, n=112), local intramuscular injection of 500 U Botulinum toxin type A (BTI group, n=112), or physical therapies alone (placebo group, n=112). Modified Ashworth scale (mAS) score, disability assessment scale (DAS) score, modified medical research council (mMRC) score, the Barthel Index (BI)...

CONCLUSION: The announcement of the disease did not always appear to have been of good quality. Ideally, the diagnosis of COPD should be conveyed to people after its identification in a dedicated consultation, combined with better information and a proposal for psychological support.

García-Barrera T Abstract The high prevalence of lung cancer (LC) has triggered the search of biomarkers for early diagnosis of this disease. For this purpose the study of metabolic changes related to the development of lung cancer could provide interesting information about its early diagnosis. In this sense, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), a disease associated with tumor development, is a comorbidity that increases the risk of onset and progression of lung neoplasia and has also to be considered in the study of pathology related to lung cancer. This work develop a metabolomic approach based ...

This study is to examine the potential role of traffic ‐related air pollution (TRAP) in eosinophilic inflammation and cough responses.MethodsNon ‐sensitized guinea pigs were exposed to TRAP in an urban traffic tunnel or kept in a filtered air environment for 7 or 14 days. Reflexive cough was measured using citric acid and allyl isothiocyanate (AITC) challenges, respectively. Spontaneous cough counting was determined using audio recording a nd a waveform analysis. Airway inflammation was evaluated using differential cells in bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BALF) and lung histopathology. To further elucidate the relationsh...

Conclusions: Outreach efforts to decrease antibiotic dispensing for URI can be focused on office-based and UCC family physicians and nurse practitioners/physician assistants. All specialties need widespread interventions to reduce antibiotic dispensing for bronchitis. RHC nurse practitioners/physician assistants can be targeted to reduce high proportion of AOM and streptococcal pharyngitis diagnoses.
