Surgery for Mesothelioma No Longer Recommended in UK
Aggressive surgery for the treatment of malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) — unless part of a clinical trial — is no longer being recommended in the United Kingdom. The British Thoracic Society recently published its Mesothelioma Management Guidelines for 2018 and removed surgery from its recommendations. The belief was that potential harm was not worth the risk. The backtrack on surgery included the extrapleural pneumonectomy (EPP), the extended pleurectomy and decortication (P/D) and the partial pleurectomy (PP) — all of which are being done at cancer centers in the United States. “Surgery is a ...

Carbon nanodots do an ultrafine job with in vitro lung tissue
(American Institute of Physics) Epidemiological studies have established a strong correlation between inhaling ultrafine particles from incomplete combustion and respiratory and cardiovascular diseases. Still, relatively little is known about the mechanisms behind how air particulates affect human health. New work seeks to provide the first model of how ultrafine carbon-based particles interact with the lung tissues. Researchers created a 3D lung cell model system to investigate how carbon-based combustion byproducts behave as they interact with human epithelial tissue. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)

Prescribing antibiotics for children with cough in general practice does not reduce hospitalisation risk
Doctors and nurses often prescribe antibiotics for children with cough and respiratory infection to avoid return visits, symptoms getting worse or hospitalisation. In a study published in the British Journal of General Practice today [Tuesday 11 September], researchers from the Universities of Bristol, Southampton, Oxford and Kings College London found little evidence that antibiotics reduce the risk of children with cough ending up in hospital, suggesting that this is an area in which unnecessary antibiotic prescribing could be reduced.
