Previous studies of the occurrence of interstitial lung disease (ILD) in undifferentiated connective tissue diseases (UCTD) were conducted in patients admitted to Respiratory Medicine Units. The aim of the present prospective study was to investigate lung involvement in UCTD patients admitted to a Rheumatology Unit. Eighty-one consecutive UCTD patients were enrolled in the study. Each patient underwent history and physical examination, routine laboratory investigations, antinuclear antibody (ANA) profiling, B-mode echocardiography, and lung function study according to previously reported methods...

OBJECTIVES: The purpose of our study was to assess proton density (PD) and T2 relaxation time of usual interstitial pneumonia (UIP) and nonspecific interstitial pneumonia (NSIP) and to evaluate their utility in differentiating the two patterns. Furthermore, we aim to investigate whether these two parameters could help differentiate active-inflammatory and stable-fibrotic lesions in NSIP. METHODS: 32 patients (mean age: 69 years; M:F, 1:1) with pathologically proven disease (UIP:NSIP, 1:1), underwent thoracic thin-section multislice CT scan and 1...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Lobar and temporal histological variability in chronic bird-related hypersensitivity pneumonitis (BRHP) has not been clearly elucidated. This study was designed to evaluate the spatio-temporal histopathological variability in chronic BRHP. METHODS: Fifty-two patients with chronic BRHP who underwent a surgical lung biopsy (SLB) between 1992 and 2008 were evaluated. The histopathological characteristics of the lung biopsy specimens were classified by the 2002 American Thoracic Society/European Respiratory Society (ATS/ERS) consensus classification of idiopathic interstitial pneumonias (IIPs)...

Background. Transbronchial lung cryobiopsies (TBLCs) are a promising diagnostic tool in the setting of diffuse parenchymal lung diseases (DPLDs). However, no comparison with surgical lung biopsy (SLB) in the same patient is available. Methods. The diagnostic yield and safety data of TBLCs, as well as the result of SLB performed after TBLCs, were analysed in a multicentric Belgian study. A SLB was performed after TBLCs in absence of a definite pathological diagnosis or if a NSIP pattern was observed without related condition identified following multidisciplinary discussion...

Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF) is an incurable progressive fibrotic disease of the lungs. We currently lack a systematic understanding of IPF biology and a systems approach may offer new therapeutic insights. Here, for the first time, a large volume of high throughput genomics data has been unified to derive the most common molecular signatures of IPF. A set of 39 differentially expressed genes (DEGs) was found critical to distinguish IPF. Using high confidence evidences and experimental data, system level networks for IPF were reconstructed, involving 737 DEGs found common across at least two independent studies...

RATIONALE: Anti-aminoacyl transfer RNA synthetase antibodies (anti-ARS) are a group of myositis-specific autoantibodies that are detected in the sera of patients with polymyositis and dermatomyositis (PM/DM) and also in those of patients with idiopathic interstitial pneumonias without any connective tissue disease (CTD), including PM/DM. Although we reported the clinical characteristics of interstitial lung disease with anti-ARS antibodies (ARS-ILD) with and without PM/DM, the long-term prognosis of ARS-ILD remains undetermined...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Acute exacerbation of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (AE-IPF) is recognized as an important cause of mortality. AE has also been reported in patients with other interstitial lung diseases such as idiopathic non-specific interstitial pneumonia (NSIP) and interstitial pneumonia associated with collagen vascular disease (CVD). Current therapies such as high-dose corticosteroid with immunosuppressive agents have provided little benefit for AE. Direct hemoperfusion (DHP) with a polymyxin B-immobilized fibre column (PMX) was originally developed for the treatment of endotoxaemia...

PURPOSE: Interstitial lung disease is a common extra-articular manifestation of rheumatoid arthritis (RA-ILD) and is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. However, limited data exist regarding predictors of mortality. We sought to examine the prognostic value of the high-resolution computed tomography (HRCT) patterns in patients with RA-ILD. MATERIALS AND METHODS: RA-ILD patients with HRCT patterns of usual interstitial pneumonia (UIP) or nonspecific interstitial pneumonia (NSIP) were identified among a longitudinal cohort of individuals evaluated at National Jewish Health...

Usual interstitial pneumonia (UIP) is characterized by progressive scarring of the lungs and is associated with high morbidity and mortality despite therapeutic interventions. Sex steroid receptors have been demonstrated to play an important role in chronic lung conditions; however, their significance is unknown in patients with UIP. We retrospectively reviewed 40 idiopathic UIP cases for the expression of hormonal receptors. Forty cases including 10 normal lung, 10 cryptogenic organizing pneumonia (COP), 10 idiopathic organizing diffuse alveolar damage (DAD), 7 hypersensitivity pneumonitis (HP) and 3 nonspecific interstitial pneumonitis (NSIP) served as controls...

BACKGROUND: Some patients with autoimmune characteristics and idiopathic interstitial pneumonia (IIP), particularly usual interstitial pneumonia (UIP), do not fit neatly into the category of connective tissue disease associated interstitial lung disease (CTD-ILD), idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) or recently proposed yet to be validated criteria for interstitial pneumonia with autoimmune features (IPAF). Outcomes of these patients are unknown. METHODS: Retrospective single center study; ANOVA analyses compared differences in mean change in forced vital capacity (FVC) and diffusion capacity (DLCO) over 1-year among 124 well defined patients (20 AI-ILD [positive autoantibodies with or without symptoms of CTD], 15 IPAF, 36 CTD-ILD, 53 "Lone-IPF" [patients with IPF without any autoantibodies]) RESULTS: 75% of patients with AI-ILD, 33% IPAF, and 33% CTD-ILD had UIP...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Unclassifiable disease in chronic interstitial lung disease (ILD) is a common and challenging problem but has been insufficiently studied. The 2013 update of the international multidisciplinary classification of the idiopathic interstitial pneumonias presented a classification based on observed disease behaviour with the purpose of providing guidance to clinicians in the management of these patients. The aim of this study was to apply the new disease behaviour classification (DBC) and the previously validated ILD-gender age physiology (GAP) score to a cohort of unclassifiable ILD patients and to assess the prognostic value of these two composite approaches...

BACKGROUND: Innate T helper type 2 (Th2) immune responses mediated by interleukin (IL)-33, thymic stromal lymphopoietin (TSLP), and IL-25 have been shown to play an important role in pulmonary fibrosis of animal models; however, their clinical implications remain poorly understood. METHODS: TSLP, IL-25, and IL-33 concentrations were measured in bronchoalveolar lavage fluids obtained from normal controls (NCs; n = 40) and from patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF; n = 100), non-specific interstitial pneumonia (NSIP; n = 22), hypersensitivity pneumonitis (HP; n = 20), and sarcoidosis (n = 19)...

We report the case of a 49-year-old man who experienced dry cough and itching eruption for 2 months. The patient had Gottoron's sign, mechanic's hand, and high levels of serum Krebs von den Lungen-6 and surfactant protein D, but was negative for anti-aminoacyl transfer RNA synthetase antibodies. High-resolution chest computed tomography revealed subpleural band-like or patchy consolidation with predominance in the bilateral lower lobe. Bronchoalveolar lavage fluid showed increased total cell counts with lymphocytosis...
