Arterial Vascular Pruning, Right Ventricular Size and Clinical Outcomes in COPD.

Am J Respir Crit Care Med 2019 Feb 13. Epub 2019 Feb 13.

Brigham and Women's Hospital, Radiology, Boston, Massachusetts, United States.

Background: Cor pulmonale (right ventricular dilation) and cor pulmonale parvus (right ventricular shrinkage) are both described in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The identification of emphysema as a shared risk factor suggests that additional disease characterization is needed to understand these widely divergent cardiac processes. Here, we explored the relationship between CT measures of emphysema and distal pulmonary arterial morphology with RV volume, as well as their association with exercise capacity and mortality in ever-smokers with COPD enrolled in the COPDGene Study.

Local and Systemic Immunity Against RSV Induced by a Novel Intranasal Vaccine: A Randomised, Double- Blind, Placebo-Controlled Trial.

Am J Respir Crit Care Med 2019 Feb 12. Epub 2019 Feb 12.

Imperial College London, London, United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland ;

Rationale: Needle-free intranasal vaccines offer major potential advantages, especially against pathogens entering via mucosal surfaces. As yet, there is no effective vaccine against respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), a ubiquitous pathogen of global importance that preferentially infects respiratory epithelial cells; new strategies are urgently required.

Objectives: Here, we report the safety and immunogenicity of a novel mucosal RSV F protein vaccine linked to an immunostimulatory bacterium-like particle (BLP). Read More

Gradual Aeration at Birth is More Lung Protective than a Sustained Inflation in Preterm Lambs.

Am J Respir Crit Care Med 2019 Feb 7. Epub 2019 Feb 7.

University of Tasmania, Menzies Institute for Medical Research, Hobart, Tasmania, Australia.

Rationale: The preterm lung is susceptible to injury during transition to air-breathing at birth. It remains unclear whether rapid or gradual lung aeration at birth causes less lung injury.

Objectives: To examine the effect of gradual and rapid aeration at birth on 1) the spatiotemporal volume conditions of the lung, and 2) resultant regional lung injury. Read More

Unmet Needs in Severe Asthma Subtyping and Precision Medicine Trials: Bridging Clinical and Patient Perspectives.

Am J Respir Crit Care Med 2019 Feb 6. Epub 2019 Feb 6.

University of Wisconsin, Medicine, Madison, Wisconsin, United States.

Severe asthma affects a small proportion of asthma patients (~ 3-5%) and reflects a failure of conventional asthma medications to provide adequate control. Severe asthma is a disease of significant clinical heterogeneity, likely caused by different pathobiological mechanisms, frequently referred to as endotypes. In the last decade, multiple monoclonal therapies have been developed to target airway type-2 eosinophilic and/or allergic severe asthma. Read More

Glutathione S-Transferase Genotype Protects Against In Utero Tobacco Linked Lung Function Deficits.

Am J Respir Crit Care Med 2019 Feb 6. Epub 2019 Feb 6.

The University of Western Australia, School of Medicine, Perth, Western Australia, Australia.

Rationale In utero tobacco exposure is associated with reduced lung function from infancy. Anti-oxidant enzymes from the glutathione-s-transferase (GST) family may protect against these lung function deficits. Objectives: (1) Assess the long-term effect of in utero smoke exposure on lung function into adulthood. Read More

Early Use of Norepinephrine in Septic Shock Resuscitation (CENSER) : A Randomized Trial.

Am J Respir Crit Care Med 2019 Feb 1. Epub 2019 Feb 1.

Mahidol University Faculty of Medicine Siriraj Hospital, 65106, Office of Research and Development, Bangkok, Thailand.

Rationale: Recent retrospective evidence suggests the efficacy of early norepinephrine administration during resuscitation; however, prospective data to support this assertion are scarce.

Objectives: To conduct a Phase II trial evaluating the hypothesis that early low-dose norepinephrine in adults sepsis with hypotension increases shock control by six hours compared with standard care.

Methods: This single-center, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial was conducted at Siriraj Hospital, Bangkok, Thailand. Read More

Rationale: There is poor understanding about protective immunity and the pathogenesis of cavitation in tuberculosis patients.

Objectives: To map pathophysiological pathways at anatomically distinct positions within the human tuberculosis cavity.

Methods: Biopsies were obtained from eight pre-determined locations within lung cavities of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis patients undergoing therapeutic surgical resection (n=14) and healthy lung tissue from non-tuberculosis controls (n=10). Read More

Multiview Cluster Analysis Identifies Variable Corticosteroid Response Phenotypes in Severe Asthma.

Am J Respir Crit Care Med 2019 Jan 25. Epub 2019 Jan 25.

University of Pittsburgh, Dept of Environmental and Occupational Health, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States.

Rationale: Corticosteroids (CSs) are the most effective asthma therapy, but responses are heterogeneous and systemic CSs lead to long-term side effects. Therefore, improved understanding of the contributing factors for CS responses could enhance precision management. While several factors have been associated with CS responsiveness, no integrated/cluster approach has yet been undertaken to identify differential CS responses. Read More

The Genetics of Pneumothorax.

Am J Respir Crit Care Med 2019 Jan 25. Epub 2019 Jan 25.

Channing Division of Network Medicine, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts, United States ;

A genetic influence on spontaneous pneumothoraces - those occurring without a traumatic or iatrogenic cause - is supported by several lines of evidence: 1) Pneumothorax can cluster in families (i.e. familial spontaneous pneumothorax); 2) Mutations in the FLCN gene have been found in both familial and sporadic cases; and 3) Pneumothorax is a known complication of several genetic syndromes.

Am J Respir Crit Care Med 2019 Jan 23. Epub 2019 Jan 23.

Brigham and Women's Hospital, Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine, Boston, Massachusetts, United States.

Rationale Interstitial lung abnormalities (ILA) are radiologic abnormalities on chest CT scans that have been associated with an early or mild form of pulmonary fibrosis. While ILA have been associated with radiologic progression, it is not known if specific imaging patterns are associated with progression or risk of mortality.

Understanding Heterogeneity in Biological Phenotypes of ARDS by Leukocyte Expression Profiles.

Am J Respir Crit Care Med 2019 Jan 15. Epub 2019 Jan 15.

Department of Intensive Care & Laboratory of Experimental Intensive Care and Anesthesiology, Academic Medical Center, University of Amsterdam, Amsterdam, Netherlands.

Rationale: Two biological phenotypes of ARDS have been identified based on plasma protein markers in four previous studies. We hypothesized that blood leukocyte gene expression is different between the "reactive" and "uninflamed" phenotype.

Methods: This is a new study adding blood leukocyte transcriptomics and bioinformatics analysis to an existing patient cohort of ARDS in patients with sepsis admitted to two ICUs during a 1. Read More

Inhaled Corticosteroid Therapy in Adult Asthma: Time for a New Therapeutic Dose Terminology.

Am J Respir Crit Care Med 2019 Jan 15. Epub 2019 Jan 15.

Oxford University, Nuffield department of Medicine, Respiratory Medicine, Oxford, Oxfordshire, United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

The GINA guidelines use the traditional terminology of 'low', 'medium' and 'high' doses of inhaled corticosteroids (ICS), to define daily maintenance doses of 100 to 250µg, >250 to 500µg and >500µg of fluticasone propionate (FP) or equivalent, for adults with asthma. This Concise Clinical Review proposes that this terminology is not evidence-based, and that prescribing practice based on this terminology may lead to the use of inappropriately excessive doses of ICS. Specifically, the ICS dose that achieves 80 to 90% of the maximum obtainable benefit is currently classified as 'low' dose, with the description of two higher dose levels of 'medium' and 'high' doses, which are associated with significant risk of systemic adverse effects.
