REVIEW
Traci N Adams, Yasmeen M Butt, Kiran Batra, Craig S Glazer
Cobalt exposure in the hard metal and bonded diamond tool industry is a well-established cause of ILD. The primary theories regarding the underlying mechanism of cobalt related ILD include an immunologic mechanism and an oxidant injury mechanism. Cobalt related ILD may present in subacute and chronic forms and often has associated upper respiratory symptoms. The evaluation begins with a thorough occupational history and includes PFTs, HRCT, and bronchoalveolar lavage. HRCT findings are nonspecific and may resemble NSIP, UIP, sarcoidosis, or HP...

BACKGROUND: The diagnostic evaluation of patients with interstitial lung disease (ILD) often involves serologic assessment for identifiable causes such as hypersensitivity pneumonitis (HP). While not on its own defining of HP, precipitin serologies are often obtained to support clinical suspicion if other findings are inconclusive. We studied the clinical relevance of positive avian serology in patients undergoing ILD evaluation. MATERIAL AND METHODS: We identified individuals with positive avian serology (>53...

BACKGROUND: Systemic sclerosis-associated interstitial lung disease (SSc-ILD) is characterized by multiple symptoms and comorbidities. The cumulative impact of these deficits can be summarized using the concept of frailty; however, frailty has not been characterized in patients with SSc-ILD. METHODS: Patients with SSc-ILD and non-CTD fibrotic ILD were recruited from specialized clinics. Frailty was assessed using a 42-item patient-reported Frailty Index, calculated as the proportion of reported deficits divided by the total number of surveyed items...

Primary immunodeficiency disorders (PIDs) are caused by 1 or more defects of the immune system. Patients are more likely to experience recurrent and/or severe infections and tend to develop a wide range of complications. Respiratory diseases are the main and initial manifestation in most cases and the most common complication. Pulmonary complications cause significant morbidity and mortality in patients with PIDs. Early diagnosis and appropriate treatment can prevent or at least slow the development of respiratory complications...

BACKGROUND: Most patients with restriction have a PFT pattern in which TLC, FVC and FEV1 are reduced to a similar degree. We call this pattern 'simple' restriction (SR). In contrast, we commonly observe a pattern in which FVC percent predicted (pp) is disproportionately reduced relative to TLCpp. We term this pattern 'complex restriction' (CR) and attempted to characterize its clinical, radiologic and physiologic features. METHODS: We reviewed PFTs of patients tested between November 2009 and June 2013 who had restriction (TLC<LLN)...

OBJECTIVES: Systemic sclerosis (SSc) is an autoimmune disease, characterized by fibrosis of the skin and other organs, vascular impairment and deficient immune responses. Mucosal associated invariant T cells (MAIT) cells have been involved in various inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. The aim of this study was to determine the frequencies of MAIT cells in the blood of patients with systemic sclerosis (SSc), and to compare their distribution in the different types of SSc. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Blood samples from SSc patients and healthy controls were examined by flow cytometer to analyze the frequencies of MAIT and γδ T cells...

BACKGROUND: Adult onset Still disease (AOSD) is a rare condition characterized by elevated fever along with arthritic symptoms, elevated polymorphonuclear neutrophil count, evanescent rash, and hyperferritinemia. Diagnosis can be made only after have ruled out more frequent conditions, and Yamagouchi or Fautrel criteria should be applied. Parenchimal lung involvement (PLI) is present in less than 5% of AOSD cases and ranges from aspecific reticular interstitial opacities to life threatening conditions, such as acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS)...

The finding of collections of macrophages/histiocytes in lung biopsy and bronchoalveolar lavage is relatively common in routine practice. This morphological feature in itself is pathological, but the exact clinical significance and underlying disease should be evaluated together with clinical data, functional respiratory and laboratory tests and imaging studies.Morphological characteristics of macrophages and their distribution along the different pulmonary structures should be examined carefully by pathologists...

Anti-melanoma differentiation-associated protein 5 (MDA5) antibody have been found in dermatomyositis (DM)-associated interstitial lung disease (DM-ILD) and DM-associated rapidly progressive ILD (DM-RPILD). Due to the conflicting results regarding the association between anti-MDA5 antibody and DM-ILD or DM-RPILD and the diagnostic value of this antibody for DM-ILD and DM-RPILD, we performed this meta-analysis. A systematic search was performed to identify studies published to January 14, 2017. Sixteen publications with 491 DM with ILD versus 605 DM without ILD, as well as eighteen publications with 186 DM with RPILD and 790 DM without RPILD were included...

BACKGROUND: Interstitial lung disease (ILD) can be a severe extra-articular disease manifestation in Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA). A potential role of fibrocytes in RA associated ILD (RA-ILD) has not previously been described. We present a modified faster method for measuring circulating fibrocytes, without intracellular staining. The results are compared to the traditional culture method, where the number of monocytes that differentiate into mature fibrocytes in vitro are counted. The results are following compared to disease activity in patients with severe asthma, ILD, RA (without diagnosed ILD) and RA with verified ILD (RA-ILD)...

Lung fibrosis (LF) is a chronic and progressive lung disease characterized by pulmonary parenchyma progressive lesion, inflammatory infiltration, and interstitial fibrosis. It is developed by excessive collagen deposition and other cellular matrix components, resulting in severe changes in the alveolar architecture. Considering the absence of effective treatment, the aim of this study was to investigate the effect of photobiomodulation therapy (PBMT) on the development of PF. For this purpose, we used C57BL6 mice subjected to induction of LF by bleomycin administration (1...
