REVIEW
Jane Hadfield, Lesley Bennett
Community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) is a common acute medical illness with a standard, effective treatment that was introduced before the evidenced-based medicine era. Mortality rates have improved in recent decades but improvements have been minimal when compared to other conditions such as acute coronary syndromes. The standardized approach to treatment makes CAP a target for comparative performance and outcome measures. While easy to collect, simplistic outcomes such as mortality, readmission and length of stay are difficult to interpret as they can be affected by subjective choices and health care resources...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Smokers develop respiratory symptoms and peripheral airway dysfunction even when spirometry is preserved. Multiple breath nitrogen washout (MBNW) and impulse oscillometry system (IOS) are potentially useful measures of peripheral airway function but they have not been compared in such subjects. We hypothesized that MBNW and IOS are jointly abnormal in smokers with normal spirometry and that these abnormalities relate to respiratory symptoms. METHODS: Eighty smokers with normal spirometry completed a symptom questionnaire, had ventilation heterogeneity in diffusion (Sacin) and convection-dependent (Scond) airways and trapped gas volume at functional residual capacity as a percentage of vital capacity (%VtrFRC/VC) measured by MBNW...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Usual gait speed over 4 m (4MGS) is an established functional performance measure in older adults that consistently predicts adverse health outcomes, but few data exist in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF). We assessed the reliability of 4MGS, its relationship with established outcome measures and its responsiveness to pulmonary rehabilitation. METHODS: In four prospective IPF cohorts, 4MGS inter-observer (n = 46) and test-retest (n = 46) reliability, concurrent validity (n = 65 and n = 62) and responsiveness (n = 60) were determined...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Intratumoral administration of chemotherapeutic agents is a treatment modality that has proven efficacious in reducing the recurrence of tumours and increases specificity of treatment while minimizing systemic side effects. Direct intratumoral injection of malignant airway obstruction has potential therapeutic benefits but tissue drug concentrations and side-effect profiles are poorly understood. METHODS: Bronchial wall injection of generic paclitaxel (PTX) (102 injections of 0...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Pneumothorax is a co-morbidity in patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF). However, its incidence, risk factors and prognostic significance in IPF remain unclear. The aim of this study was to clarify the incidence and prognostic significance of pneumothorax in patients with IPF, and to further investigate the risk factors for its onset. METHODS: Eighty-four consecutive patients with IPF based on the consensus guideline were included in this study...

REVIEW
Sutapa Mukherjee, Richa Saxena, Lyle J Palmer
Obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) is a common chronic disease and is associated with high social and economic costs. OSA is heritable, and there is evidence of both direct genetic contributions to OSA susceptibility and indirect contributions via 'intermediate' phenotypes such as obesity, craniofacial structure, neurological control of upper airway muscles and of sleep and circadian rhythm. Investigation of the genetics of OSA is an important research area and may lead to improved understanding of disease aetiology, pathogenesis, adverse health consequences and new preventive strategies and treatments...

REVIEW

Unexpandable lung is a common complication of malignant pleural effusions and inflammatory pleural diseases, such as pleural infection (e.g. empyema and complicated parapneumonic effusion) and noninfectious fibrinous pleuritis. Unexpandable lung due to pleural disease may be because of an active pleural process, and is referred to as malignant or inflammatory lung entrapment. An unexpandable lung may also be encountered in the setting of remote pleural inflammation resulting in a mature fibrous membrane overlying the visceral pleura preventing full expansion of the lung...

REVIEW
Yudong Yin, Richard G Wunderink
Human coronaviruses (HCoVs) have been considered to be relatively harmless respiratory pathogens in the past. However, after the outbreak of the severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and emergence of the Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS), HCoVs have received worldwide attention as important pathogens in respiratory tract infection. This review focuses on the epidemiology, pathogenesis and clinical characteristics among SARS-coronaviruses (CoV), MERS-CoV and other HCoV infections.

Bo Ding, Mark Small
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: The impact, treatment patterns and control of mild asthma are poorly understood for Chinese patients. This study describes the characteristics, therapeutic interventions and burden of mild asthma on patients residing in major cities of China. METHODS: The Respiratory Disease Specific Program 2015, a cross-sectional survey, was conducted with Chinese physicians and their patients. The survey assessed clinical characteristics, asthma symptoms, exacerbations, rescue inhaler usage, treatment adherence, asthma control, work and activity impairments and healthcare utilization for patients prescribed Global Initiative for Asthma (GINA) Step 1 or 2 treatment defined mild asthma...
