BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Although the multi-ethnic European Respiratory Society/Global Lung Initiative (ERS/GLI) 2012 reference values have been developed, the Taskforce has called for further validation specifically on subpopulations that were under represented such as the Malays, Chinese and Indians, in which the two latter ethnic groups represent about one-third of the world population. Thus, the aims of this study were to evaluate the appropriateness of the ERS/GLI 2012 reference values in a healthy adult Malaysian population and to construct a local lung function reference for the Malaysia population specific to the three major ethnic groups...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Many patients with advanced COPD experience refractory breathlessness and individualized breathlessness interventions may improve management of this complex symptom. The aims of this study were to develop, implement and assess the efficacy of a breathlessness intervention for patients with COPD and refractory breathlessness and to evaluate patient acceptability. METHODS: An individualized breathlessness plan, information leaflets, breathlessness education and a hand-held fan were offered to consecutive patients with severe COPD and refractory breathlessness attending a tertiary integrated respiratory and palliative care service...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: The role of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF)-A in the resolution of ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) was investigated in clinical and mouse pneumonia models. METHODS: VEGF-A was measured for seven consecutive days by an immunosorbent assay in sera of 82 patients with VAP and changes from baseline were correlated with the resolution of VAP. Experimental animals were challenged intratracheally with Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Mouse bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) samples and segments of lung tissue were obtained at 24, 48 and 124 h after bacterial challenge...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Inflammation is present to a variable degree and composition in patients with COPD. This study investigates associations between both eosinophils and neutrophils in blood, sputum, airway wall biopsies and bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) and their potential use as biomarkers for clinical response to inhaled corticosteroids (ICS). METHODS: In total, 114 steroid-naïve COPD patients of the Groningen Leiden Universities Corticosteroids in Obstructive Lung Disease (GLUCOLD) study using ICS or placebo during 30-month follow-up were included...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Non-specific interstitial pneumonia (NSIP) has heterogeneous characteristics in terms of background, disease behaviour and prognosis. This study of fibrotic NSIP (f-NSIP) aimed to elucidate prognosis and disease behaviour from the viewpoint of clinical background and determine whether long-term change of pulmonary function could provide useful prognostic information. METHODS: We analysed the medical records of 157 consecutive patients diagnosed with f-NSIP by surgical lung biopsy...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Blood transfusion has been associated with adverse outcomes in certain conditions. This study investigates the prevalence and outcomes of red blood cell (RBC) transfusion in patients with acute pulmonary embolism (PE). METHODS: Retrospective study of consecutive patients from 2000 to 2012 admitted to a tertiary hospital with a primary diagnosis of acute PE. Transfusion status during the hospital admission was ascertained. Mortality was tracked from a state-wide death database and analysed using multivariable modelling...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Delayed diagnosis and treatment of tuberculosis (TB) contribute to poor outcomes, especially for endobronchial TB (EBTB), which typically leads to tracheobronchial stenosis. Finding rapid and accurate diagnostic tools for EBTB is crucial. GeneXpert Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB)/rifampin (RIF) was recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO) as a standard molecular biological diagnostic technique for MTB. The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of GeneXpert MTB/RIF for diagnosing EBTB and for evaluating RIF resistance...

REVIEW
Kalpeshsinh Rahevar, Paula I Fujiwara, Shalala Ahmadova, Fukushi Morishita, Lee B Reichman
The End TB Strategy aims to end the global tuberculosis (TB) epidemic by 2035 in line with the sustainable development goals targets and has been implemented in the World Health Organization (WHO) Western Pacific Region since 2015. Significant progress has been made in implementing this strategy. However, several challenges still remain. In 2016, an estimated 1.8 million people developed TB in the region, and of these about 20% were missed by national TB programmes. The gap in diagnosis and enrolment as well as treatment completion is greater with drug-resistant TB...
