There is a possible role for oxidative stress, a state characterized by an altered balance between the production of free radicals or reactive oxygen species (ROS) and antioxidant defences, in coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), the genesis of which is quite complex. Excessive oxidative stress could be responsible for the alveolar damage, thrombosis, and red blood cell dysregulation observed in COVID-19. Apparently, deficiency of glutathione (GSH), a low-molecular-weight thiol that is the most ...

PURPOSE Noninvasive ventilation (NIV) is often required for patients with acute exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (AECOPD), and it can significantly reduce the need for endotracheal intubation. Currently, there is no standard method for predicting successful weaning from NIV. Therefore, we aimed to evaluate whether a weaning index can predict NIV outcomes of patients with AECOPD. METHODS This study was conducted at a single academic public hospital in northern Taiwan from Feb...

The case definition of inhalational constrictive bronchiolitis (CB) has changed over the generations. We identify changes in the description of this illness over time associated with different exposures and present the natural history of CB in a case attributed to military burn pit exposure. The initial descriptions of this disease began with nitric acid spills and silage exposures. In these events, there was an acute exposure, typically a short-term resolution of the adverse respiratory events,...

Purpose null Vitronectin (VTN), a multifunctional glycoprotein, is involved in various biological and pathological processes. The purpose of this study was to explore the effect of VTN on mesenchymal-epithelial transition (MET) of pulmonary fibroblast cells. null Methods null Lentivirus encoding for VTN-specific shRNA was constructed and infected into the cultured fibroblast WI-38 cells. Real-time PCR and Western blot were applied to examine the expression of VTN in WI-38 cells. MTT assay was us...

PURPOSE Preoperative pulmonary function testing is mandatory for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) surgery. The predicted postoperative FEV1 (ppoFEV1) is used for further risk stratification. We compared the ppoFEV1 with the postoperative FEV1 (postFEV1) in order to improve the calculation of the ppoFEV1. METHODS 87 patients voluntarily received an FEV1 assessment 1 year after surgery. ppoFEV1 was calculated according to the Brunelli calculation. Baseline characteristics and surgical procedure ...

PURPOSE Obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) which results in hypoxia may affect the ability to recruit coronary collaterals. The aim of this study was to determine whether the severity of OSA affects collateral recruitment in patients with total coronary occlusions. METHODS Patients with total coronary artery occlusion were reviewed. Records from the sleep investigation laboratory were reviewed to identify those patients who had undergone diagnostic polysomnography. Robust coronary collaterals were t...

PURPOSE To document and compare prevalences of pulmonary pathology diagnoses among US Service members deployed during the Global War on Terrorism and non-deployed US service members. Difficulties establishing associations between deployment-related exposures and pulmonary pathology reported among US military service members deployed during the Global War on Terrorism include retrospective estimations of exposures, documenting medical outcomes and lack of comparison groups. METHODS Pulmonary diag...
