    1. Relationship between exhaled nitric oxide and treatment response in COPD patients with exacerbations (pages 472–477)

      Balazs ANTUS, Imre BARTA, Ildiko HORVATH and Eszter CSISZER

      Version of Record online: 24 FEB 2010 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1440-1843.2010.01711.x

      This study demonstrated that measurements of exhaled nitric oxide may provide a predictive tool for assessing response to treatment in COPD patients hospitalized with acute exacerbations.

    2. Local inflammation occurs before systemic inflammation in patients with COPD (pages 478–484)

      Zhihui HE, Yan CHEN, Ping CHEN, Guobao WU and Shan CAI

      Version of Record online: 24 FEB 2010 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1440-1843.2010.01709.x

      Understanding the nature of systemic inflammation in COPD may lead to new therapeutic options. This comparative study of patients with stable COPD and healthy controls showed that inflammatory cell numbers, IL-6 and CRP levels increase earlier in the airway than in peripheral blood.

    3. Changes in the highest frequency of breath sounds without wheezing during methacholine inhalation challenge in children (pages 485–490)

      Chizu HABUKAWA, Katsumi MURAKAMI, Hiroyuki MOCHIZUKI, Satoru TAKAMI, Reiko MURAMATSU, Hiromi TADAKI, Satomi HAGIWARA, Takahisa MIZUNO, Hirokazu ARAKAWA and Yukio NAGASAKA

      Version of Record online: 24 FEB 2010 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1440-1843.2010.01706.x

      A breath sound analyser was used to detect bronchoconstriction without wheezing during methacholine inhalation challenge in children. The highest frequency of inspiratory breath sounds increased significantly during bronchoconstriction and decreased after inhalation of a bronchodilator. The highest frequency of inspiratory breaths sounds was correlated with bronchial reactivity.

    4. Endobronchial foreign bodies in Vietnamese adults are related to eating habits (pages 491–494)

      Lan Huu NGUYEN, Dung Huy NGUYEN, Thach Ngoc TRAN, Phung Tran NGUYEN, Quy Hoang THI, Yossef AELONY and Jean Paul Daniel HOMASSON

      Version of Record online: 24 FEB 2010 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1440-1843.2010.01707.x

      Review of 100 consecutive adult patients who had a foreign body removed by bronchoscopy has shown that sapote pits and small bones were the most frequent inhaled objects. Diagnosis was often delayed and the foreign body was most often located in the right bronchial tree. These findings reflect the eating habits of the population.

    5. ‘Lung age’ predicts post-operative complications and survival in lung cancer patients (pages 495–500)

      Tomohiro HARUKI, Hiroshige NAKAMURA, Yuji TANIGUCHI, Ken MIWA, Yoshin ADACHI and Shinji FUJIOKA

      Version of Record online: 24 FEB 2010 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1440-1843.2010.01708.x

      This study examined whether ‘lung age’ could be a useful parameter for the patients with lung cancer treated surgically. ‘Lung age’ was found to be an independent predictor of post-operative respiratory complications and survival.

    6. Prognostic value of survivin, X-linked inhibitor of apoptosis protein and second mitochondria-derived activator of caspases expression in advanced non-small-cell lung cancer patients (pages 501–509)

      Ping CHEN, Jian LI, Li-Ping GE, Chun-Hua DAI and Xiao-Qin LI

      Version of Record online: 24 FEB 2010 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1440-1843.2010.01710.x

      Survivin, XIAP and Smac mRNA expression were measured in transbronchial biopsy tumour specimens from 72 patients with advanced non-small-cell lung cancer before chemotherapy. The expression levels of survivin and Smac, but not XIAP, predicted patient outcome. On regression analysis, survivin and clinical stage were independent predictors for progression-free survival and overall survival.

    7. Mannitol and AMP do not induce bronchoconstriction in eosinophilic bronchitis: Further evidence for dissociation between airway inflammation and bronchial hyperresponsiveness (pages 510–515)

      Amisha SINGAPURI, Sue MCKENNA, Chris E. BRIGHTLING and Peter BRADDING

      Version of Record online: 24 FEB 2010 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1440-1843.2010.01712.x

      In this study of BHR, the airways of patients with eosinophilic bronchitis were not responsive to either direct or indirect bronchial challenge. This supports the view that functionally abnormal airway smooth muscle is the key determinant of BHR in asthma.

    8. Surgical mask placement over N95 filtering facepiece respirators: Physiological effects on healthcare workers (pages 516–521)

      Raymond J. ROBERGE, Aitor COCA, W. Jon WILLIAMS, Andrew J. PALMIERO and Jeffrey B. POWELL

      Version of Record online: 11 MAR 2010 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1440-1843.2010.01713.x

      Ten healthcare workers wearing N95 filtering facepiece respirators with, and without, a surgical mask outer covering were physiologically monitored. No significant differences in heart rate, breathing rate, tidal volume, minute volume, transcutaneous carbon dioxide and oxygen saturation were observed with application of the surgical mask.

    9. CCL22 is involved in the recruitment of CD4+CD25high T cells into tuberculous pleural effusions (pages 522–529)

      Cong WU, Qiong ZHOU, Xue-Jun QIN, Shou-Ming QIN and Huan-Zhong SHI

      Version of Record online: 19 MAR 2010 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1440-1843.2010.01719.x

      The chemokines, CCL22 and CCL17, were measured in pleural effusions from patients with tuberculous pleurisy, pleural bacterial infections and transudative pleural effusions. CCL22 was increased in TPE and may be responsible for the infiltration of CD4+CD25high T cells into the pleural space of patients with tuberculous pleurisy.

    10. Serum levels of matrix metalloproteinase-9, tissue inhibitors of metalloproteinase-1 and their ratio are associated with impaired lung function in the elderly: A population-based study (pages 530–535)

      Inga S. ÓLAFSDÓTTIR, Christer JANSON, Lars LIND, Johannes HULTHE, María GUNNBJÖRNSDÓTTIR and Johan SUNDSTRÖM

      Version of Record online: 19 MAR 2010 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1440-1843.2010.01718.x

      To investigate their association with lung function, serum levels of MMP-9 and TIMP-1 were measured in 888 elderly subjects. Low FEV1 was associated with higher levels of MMP-9 and TIMP-1. After stratification for gender, associations between FEV1 and MMP-9, TIMP-1, and their ratio, were significant in men but not in women.

    11. Prevalence of viral infection detected by PCR and RT-PCR in patients with acute exacerbation of COPD: A systematic review (pages 536–542)

      Anant MOHAN, Subhash CHANDRA, Dipti AGARWAL, Randeep GULERIA, Shobha BROOR, Bharti GAUR and Ravindra Mohan PANDEY

      Version of Record online: 29 MAR 2010 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1440-1843.2010.01722.x

      Viruses are an important cause of acute exacerbation of COPD (AECOPD). This systematic review calculated the weighted mean prevalence (WMP) of respiratory viruses detected in patients with AECOPD. The overall WMP was 34.1% (95% CI: 23.9-44.4), and picornavirus was the most commonly detected virus with WMP 17.3% (95% CI: 7.2-27.3).

    12. The long-term impact of severe acute respiratory syndrome on pulmonary function, exercise capacity and health status (pages 543–550)

      Jenny C. NGAI, Fanny W. KO, Susanna S. NG, Kin-Wang TO, Mabel TONG and David S. HUI

      Version of Record online: 19 MAR 2010 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1440-1843.2010.01720.x

      This study consists of serial assessments of lung function, 6MWD, 36 item Short Form General Health Survey and work status of survivors of severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) over 24 months. There was persistent and significant impairment of DLCO, exercise capacity and health status, with more marked adverse impact among the health-care workers.

      Version of Record online: 19 MAR 2010 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1440-1843.2010.01714.x

      This study assessed aerosol delivery of gadopentetate dimeglumine for 60, 30, 20 and 10 min in four neonatal pigs undergoing high-frequency oscillatory ventilation by visualizing contrast excretion by the kidneys. In piglets that received aerosol for 60, 30 and 20 min, contrast excretion was observed 10 min after aerosol administration ceased.

      This study collated the policies of major commercial airlines with regards to in-flight use of CPAP. Many airlines were unaware of the use of CPAP by passengers, but those that were had consistent policies.
