  • Noninvasive ventilation in stable hypercapnic COPD: what is the

    • Authors: Duiverman; M. L.
      Pages: 00012-2018 - 12-2018
      Abstract: Long-term noninvasive ventilation (NIV) to treat chronic hypercapnic respiratory failure is still controversial in severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patients. However, with the introduction of high-intensity NIV, important benefits from this therapy have also been shown in COPD. In this review, the focus will be on the arguments for long-term NIV at home in patients with COPD. The rise of (high-intensity) NIV in COPD and the randomised controlled trials showing positive effects with this mode of ventilation will be discussed. Finally, the challenges that might be encountered (both in clinical practice and in research) in further optimising this therapy, monitoring and following patients, and selecting the patients who might benefit most will be reviewed.

  • Immunogenicity and safety of subunit influenza vaccines in pregnant women

    • Authors: Kostinov, M. P; Cherdantsev, A. P, Akhmatova, N. K, Praulova, D. A, Kostinova, A. M, Akhmatova, E. A, Demina, E. O.
      Pages: 00060-2017 - 60-2017
      Abstract: Pregnancy is a condition of modulated immune suppression, so this group of patients has increased risk of infectious diseases.Trivalent subunit vaccines, unadjusted Agrippal S1 (group I) and immunoadjuvant Grippol Plus (group II), containing 5 μg of actual influenza virus strains, were administered respectively to 37 and 42 women in the second and third trimester of physiological pregnancy.The administration of subunit influenza vaccines was accompanied by the development of local reactions in no more than 10% of patients, compared with 4.9% of the 41 pregnant women in the placebo group (group III). Systemic reactions were of a general somatic nature, did not differ between vaccinated and placebo groups, and were not associated with vaccination. Physiological births in groups I, II and III were 94.6%, 92.9% and 85.4%, respectively, and the birth rates of children without pathologies were 91.9%, 90.5% and 80.5%, respectively, and were comparable between groups. Vaccination stimulated the production of protective antibodies against influenza virus strains in 64.8–94.5% of patients after immunisation with an unadjusted vaccine and in 72.5–90.0% of patients after the administration of an immunoadjuvant vaccine. After 9 months, antibody levels were recorded in 51.3–72.9% in group I and 54.2–74.2% in group II. Immunisation against influenza in pregnant women provided a high level of seroprotection and seroconversion. Nevertheless, the level of seroprotection against the influenza strain A(H3N2, Victoria) was slightly lower in the group immunised with an unadjusted vaccine compared to those vaccinated with the immunoadjuvant vaccine.

  • Aspergillus-induced superoxide production by cystic fibrosis phagocytes is
           associated with disease severity

    • Authors: Brunel, S. F; Willment, J. A, Brown, G. D, Devereux, G, Warris, A.
      Pages: 00068-2017 - 68-2017
      Abstract: Aspergillus fumigatus infects up to 50% of cystic fibrosis (CF) patients and may play a role in progressive lung disease. As cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator is expressed in cells of the innate immune system, we hypothesised that impaired antifungal immune responses play a role in CF-related Aspergillus lung disease.Peripheral blood mononuclear cells, polymorphonuclear cells (PMN) and monocytes were isolated from blood samples taken from CF patients and healthy volunteers. Live-cell imaging and colorimetric assays were used to assess antifungal activity in vitro. Production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) was measured using luminol-induced chemiluminescence and was related to clinical metrics as collected by case report forms.CF phagocytes are as effective as those from healthy controls with regards to phagocytosis, killing and restricting germination of A. fumigatus conidia. ROS production by CF phagocytes was up to four-fold greater than healthy controls (p

  • Accumulating physical activity in at least 10-minute bouts predicts better
           lung function after 3-years in adults with cystic fibrosis

    • Authors: Cox, N. S; Alison, J. A, Button, B. M, Wilson, J. W, Morton, J. M, Holland, A. E.
      Pages: 00095-2017 - 95-2017
      Abstract: In people with cystic fibrosis (CF) reduced fitness and lower levels of physical activity have been associated with poorer prognosis [1] and greater decline in lung function [2]. Despite the health benefits of being physically active [3], in people with CF adherence to exercise programmes is often poor [4], and prescribed exercise training programmes have seldom translated into increased daily physical activity [5].

  • Bulbar impairment score and survival of stable amyotrophic lateral
           sclerosis patients after noninvasive ventilation initiation

    • Authors: Sancho, J; Martinez, D, Bures, E, Diaz, J. L, Ponz, A, Servera, E.
      Pages: 00159-2017 - 159-2017
      Abstract: There is general agreement that noninvasive ventilation (NIV) prolongs survival in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and that the main cause of NIV failure is the severity of bulbar dysfunction. However, there is no evidence that bulbar impairment is a contraindication for NIV. The aim of this study was to determine the effect of bulbar impairment on survival in ALS patients with NIV.ALS patients for whom NIV was indicated were included. Those patients who refused NIV were taken as the control group.120 patients who underwent NIV and 20 who refused NIV were included. The NIV group presented longer survival (median 18.50 months, 95% CI 12.62–24.38 months) than the no-NIV group (3.00 months, 95% CI 0.82–5.18 months) (p

  • Risk of tuberculosis transmission among healthcare workers

    • Authors: Diel, R; Niemann, S, Nienhaus, A.
      Pages: 00161-2017 - 161-2017
      Abstract: Data from a prospective molecular-epidemiological study (1997–2015) of patients with culture-confirmed tuberculosis in Hamburg, Germany, were evaluated to assess the occupational risk of Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex transmission in a low-incidence setting.Isolates of M. tuberculosis complex were genotyped using IS6110 restriction fragment length polymorphism analysis. Results of structured questionnaires, geographical mapping and additional patient interviews were used for confirming epidemiological links.Out of the 2393 cases, 918 (38.4%) were classified into 224 clusters comprising 2–70 patients per cluster. Among the 918 cluster members, epidemiological links could be confirmed in 340 (37.0%) patients. In total, 55 (2.3%) patients were healthcare workers; 26 healthcare workers remained unclustered, but 29 healthcare workers belonged to cluster groups. Conventional contact tracing performed before genotyping to identify sources of the reported index cases detected only 73 (3.1%) patients.Logistic regression analysis confirmed work in the healthcare sector as strongest predictor for clustering of patients with verified epidemiological links (odds ratio (OR) 3.1, 95% CI 1.6–5.9), followed by alcoholism (OR 2.3, 95% CI 1.7–3.2) and sputum smear positivity (OR 1.8, 95% CI 1.4–2.3). Immigrants were more likely to be cluster nonmembers (OR 0.3, 95% CI 0.3–0.5). Recent transmission in Hamburg within the 19-year study period was found to be strongly associated with working in a healthcare facility. Although clusters also include many "imported" strains from abroad or regional highly prevalent M. tuberculosis strains with no evident epidemiological connection, routine molecular-epidemiological survey is indispensable to optimising and controlling the effectiveness of TB control strategies in German healthcare settings.

      Pages: 00168-2017 - 168-2017
      Abstract: The aim of this study was to assess the influence of different masks, ventilator settings and body positions on the pressure exerted on the nasal bridge by the mask and subjective comfort during noninvasive ventilation (NIV).We measured the pressure over the nasal bridge in 20 healthy participants receiving NIV via four different NIV masks (three oronasal masks, one nasal mask) at three different ventilator settings and in the seated or supine position. Objective pressure measurements were obtained with an I-Scan pressure-mapping system. Subjective comfort of the mask fit was assessed with a visual analogue scale.The masks exerted mean pressures between 47.6±29 mmHg and 91.9±42.4 mmHg on the nasal bridge. In the supine position, the pressure was lower in all masks (57.1±31.9 mmHg supine, 63.9±37.3 mmHg seated; p

  • Outcome of advanced lung cancer with central airway obstruction versus
           without central airway obstruction

    • Authors: Verma, A; Goh, S. K, Tai, D. Y. H, Kor, A. C, Soo, C. I, Seow, D. G. F, Sein, Z. N. N, Samol, J, Chopra, A, Abisheganaden, J.
      Pages: 00173-2017 - 173-2017
      Abstract: Patients with central airway obstruction (CAO) from advanced lung cancer present with significant morbidity and are assumed to have lower survival. Hence, they are offered only palliative support. We asked if patients who have advanced lung cancer with CAO (recanalised and treated) will behave similarly to those with advanced lung cancer without CAO.This study was a retrospective review of the medical records of the patients managed for advanced lung cancer during 2010 and 2015 at our institution.85 patients were studied. Median survival and 1-, 2- and 5-year survival were 5.8 months, 30.3%, 11.7% and 2.3% versus 9.3 months, 35.7%, 9.6% and 4.7%, respectively, in the CAO and no CAO groups (p=0.30). More patients presented with respiratory failure (15 (35%) versus none; p=0.0001) and required assisted mechanical ventilation (10 (23.3%) versus none; p=0.001) in the CAO group compared with the no CAO group. Fewer patients received chemotherapy in the CAO group (11 (25.5%)) compared with the no CAO group (23 (54.7%); p=0.008).There was no difference in survival among patients with advanced lung cancer whether they presented with CAO or without CAO. Survival was similar to those without CAO in patients with recanalised CAO despite greater morbidity and lesser use of chemotherapy, strongly advocating bronchoscopic recanalisation of CAO. These findings dispel the nihilism associated with such cases.
