SESSION TYPE: Cystic Fibrosis/ Bronchiectasis PostersPRESENTED ON: Wednesday, October 24, 2012 at 01:30 PM - 02:30 PMPURPOSE: Bronchiectasis is a chronic lung disease and commonly found in the patients with chronic cough. This disease caused chronic pulmonary infection, impaired pulmonary function, and increased morbidity and mortality. Prevalences of airway hyperresponsiveness(AHR) in bronchiectatic patients are vary between studies. This study aims to determine the prevalence and predictors of airway hyperresponsiveness in patients with bronchiectasis...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Anti-tumor necrosis factor-alpha agents have recently been approved and recommended as effective and relatively safe drug therapy for ankylosing spondylitis. In light of this major advance in the management of these patients, recent observations on the pulmonary manifestations of ankylosing spondylitis are reviewed. RECENT FINDINGS: High-resolution computed tomography abnormalities were found to be prevalent (range 50-85%) in ankylosing spondylitis even in patients with early disease, and in those with normal chest radiographs and without respiratory symptoms...

To clarify the immunological state of patients with pulmonary Mycobacterium avium-intracellulare complex (MAC) disease, we compared the production of IFN-gamma, IL-10 and TNF-alpha by peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) between MAC disease patients with different levels of disease activity and healthy volunteers. The patients had no complication of systemic immunological diseases or preexisting pulmonary diseases. PBMC obtained from 46 patients and 15 healthy control volunteers were incubated with a protein antigen extracted from Mycobacterium intracellulare (PPD-B) for seven days, and IFN-gamma, IL-10 and TNF-alpha concentration in the supernatant of the cultures was measured by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA)...

8 cases of pneumophathia osteoplastica (ppo) of branching type observed at patients having no vascular deformities and one case of a focal ppo at a patient with mitral stenosis are reported. Pathogenesis of the ppo of branching type in the majority of cases could not be clarified since the process appeared to be in the phase of definitive bone formation. Nevertheless in one of the cases in a septum of Y shape in addition to collagen fibres ending in bone tissue numerous elastic fibres have also been revealed...

Bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) is a new diagnostic tool which could be applied repeatedly to investigate the nature of lesion in pulmonary diseases. To evaluate the clinical significance of the difference in immunoglobulin content for the differential diagnosis between benign and malignant pulmonary diseases, we performed bronchoalveolar lavage for 64 patients. They included 12 patients with bronchogenic carcinoma, 12 patients with pulmonary tuberculosis, 20 patients with benign non-specific bronchopulmonary diseases (these including 6 patients with pneumoconiosis, 6 patients with bronchietasis, 2 patients with paraquate intoxication, 6 patients with pneumonia) and 20 healthy persons as of the control group...
