PURPOSE OF REVIEW The current review focuses on serious pulmonary toxicity after inhalation of over the counter available pyrethroid-based insecticides. Pyrethroid is a synthetic product of pyrethrin, which in turn is the active ingredient of pyrethrum, a flower extract. RECENT FINDINGS On the contrary, a large gap of knowledge exists in the association of interstitial lung disease (ILD) with pyrethroids. So far, two cases of ILD, one associated with pyrethrin and one associated with pyrethrum, ...

Purpose of review Lung cancer remains the leading cause of cancer-related death in the United States, with poor overall 5-year survival. Early detection and diagnosis are key to survival as demonstrated in lung cancer screening trials. However, with increasing implementation of screening guidelines and use of computed tomography, there has been a sharp rise in the incidence of indeterminate pulmonary nodules (IPNs). Risk stratification of IPNs, particularly those in the intermediate-risk categor...

Purpose of review Robotic bronchoscopy is the newest advanced diagnostic bronchoscopy technology for biopsying peripheral pulmonary lesions; sensitivity for malignancy is currently suboptimal using modalities, such as radial endobronchial ultrasound or electromagnetic navigational bronchoscopy. We review the pitfalls of prior methods and the technological advancements with robotic bronchoscopy. Recent findings The contributors to reduced diagnostic sensitivity with current approaches include lim...
Purpose of review With the development and use of pesticide products increasing, information on the safe handling of pesticides becomes increasingly important. In this article, the denomination of lung toxicity on labelling is reviewed. Recent findings The results highlight that whereas hazards, warning statements and instructions for safe use are broadly defined, the different categories of products used as pesticides are associated with different types of clinical manifestations of toxicity. T...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: COVID-19 has put the in-vitro-diagnostic community under an unprecedented spotlight, with a global requirement for accurate SARS-CoV-2 tests. This review will outline technological responses to this need and the analytical considerations required for their translation to routine use. RECENT FINDINGS: SARS-CoV-2 diagnostic solutions directly detect a virus or measure host-derived surrogate markers of infection. With pressure upon supply chains for the 'traditional' molecular ap...

Purpose of review Patients on chronic immunosuppressive treatments at baseline are at increased risk of opportunistic infections. These patients are at especially increased risk of morbidity and mortality during the coronavirus-19 (COVID-19) pandemic. This review will focus on patients with diseases in which immunosuppression is a vital part of the treatment regimen, including those with solid organ transplants, rheumatologic disorders, sarcoidosis, and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). We will ...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW The wide spectrum of COVID-19 clinical manifestations demonstrates the determinant role played by the individual immune response to severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) in the course of the disease. Thanks to the large number of published data, we are beginning to understand the logic of the human response to a virus adapted to bat immunity. RECENT FINDINGS Impairment of types I and III interferon responses may facilitate the occurrence of severe COVID-1...
