    1. Heart rate recovery after six-minute walk test predicts pulmonary hypertension in patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (pages 439–445)

      JEFFREY J. SWIGRIS, AMY L. OLSON, OKSANA A. SHLOBIN, SHAHZAD AHMAD, KEVIN K. BROWN and STEVEN D. NATHAN

      Version of Record online: 30 MAR 2011 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1440-1843.2010.01877.x

      For patients with IPF, a failure of heart rate to reduce by at least 14 beats/min after the first minute of recovery following completion of a six-minute walk test is an independent predictor of mortality and of pulmonary hypertension.

    2. Extrapulmonary involvement in patients with sarcoidosis in Turkey (pages 446–450)

      GULFER OKUMUS, BENAN MUSELLIM, ERDOGAN CETINKAYA, HATICE TURKER, ESRA UZASLAN, ESIN YENTURK, OGUZ UZUN, LEYLA SAGLAM, OZLEM OZDEMIR KUMBASAR, GOKHAN CELIK, ALI NIHAT ANNAKKAYA, GUNDENIZ ALTIAY, LEVENT TABAK, AYSIN SAKAR, GOKSEL KITER, SERDAR ERTURAN, HALUK TURKTAS, ENVER YALNIZ, ATILLA AKKOCLU, CANDAN OGUS, OMER TAMER DOGAN, METIN OZKAN, SERIR AKTOGU, ISIL UZEL and GUL ONGEN

      Version of Record online: 30 MAR 2011 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1440-1843.2010.01878.x

      Extrapulmonary manifestations vary with gender, age and ethnicity. This is the first multicentre, prospective study of sarcoidosis in Turkey investigating extrapulmonary involvement.

    3. Exercise capacity in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis: The effect of pulmonary hypertension (pages 451–458)

      AFRODITI K BOUTOU, GEORGIA G. PITSIOU, IOANNIS TRIGONIS, DESPINA PAPAKOSTA, PASCHALINA K. KONTOU, NIKOLAOS CHAVOUZIS, CHRYSANTHI NAKOU, PARASKEVI ARGYROPOULOU, KARLMAN WASSERMAN and IOANNIS STANOPOULOS

      Version of Record online: 30 MAR 2011 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1440-1843.2010.01909.x

      Pulmonary hypertension (PH) results in exercise limitation in patients with IPF. Although resting pulmonary function measurements are minimally informative regarding the presence and impact of PH, exercise parameters indicative of circulatory impairment correlate significantly with systolic pulmonary arterial pressure in patients with IPF and PH.

    4. Sputum zinc concentration and clinical outcome in older asthmatics (pages 459–466)

      LATA JAYARAM, SANJEEV CHUNILAL, SANDY PICKERING, RICHARD E. RUFFIN and PETER D. ZALEWSKI

      Version of Record online: 30 MAR 2011 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1440-1843.2011.01932.x

      Zinc levels in sputum are lower in asthmatic compared with healthy subjects, and are associated with increased frequency of wheeze, severity of asthma and worse lung function. Sputum zinc may be a novel biomarker that reflects clinical status in asthma.

    5. Combination of endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration with standard bronchoscopic techniques for the diagnosis of stage I and stage II pulmonary sarcoidosis (pages 467–472)

      NEAL NAVANI, HELEN L. BOOTH, GABRIJELA KOCJAN, MARY FALZON, ARRIGO CAPITANIO, JAMES M. BROWN, JOANNA C. PORTER and SAM M. JANES

      Version of Record online: 30 MAR 2011 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1440-1843.2011.01933.x

      Transbronchial and endobronchial biopsies are recommended as initial procedures for the diagnosis of pulmonary sarcoidosis. In this study of patients with suspected stage I and stage II sarcoidosis, the addition of EBUS-TBNA to standard bronchoscopic techniques was safe and resulted in a significant improvement in diagnostic yield.

    6. Diagnostic accuracy of T-cell interferon-γ release assays in tuberculous pleurisy: A meta-analysis (pages 473–480)

      QIONG ZHOU, YI-QIANG CHEN, SHOU-MING QIN, XIAO-NAN TAO, JIAN-BAO XIN and HUAN-ZHONG SHI

      Version of Record online: 30 MAR 2011 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1440-1843.2011.01941.x

      A meta-analysis was performed to establish the overall diagnostic accuracy of T-cell IFN-γ release assays for tuberculous pleurisy. The current evidence does not support the use of T-cell IFN-γ release assays on either pleural fluid or blood, for the diagnosis of tuberculous pleurisy.

    7. The value of computed tomography scanning for the detection of coronary artery disease in patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (pages 481–486)

      STEVEN D. NATHAN, NARGUES WEIR, OKSANA A. SHLOBIN, BRUCE A. URBAN, CHARLENE A. CURRY, ASHWIN BASAVARAJ, SHAHZAD AHMAD, JOSEPH KIERNAN, MICHAEL J. SHERIDAN and JAMES P. EARLS

      Version of Record online: 30 MAR 2011 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1440-1843.2010.01919.x

      Coronary artery disease is known to be prevalent in IPF. When and how to screen for this comorbidity remains uncertain. We report on the utility and predictive characteristics of coronary calcification, assessed on routine chest CT, for underlying coronary artery disease in a cohort of patients with IPF.

    8. Prognostic value of dynamic soluble triggering receptor expressed on myeloid cells in bronchoalveolar lavage fluid of patients with ventilator-associated pneumonia (pages 487–494)

      CHIEN-LIANG WU, YEN-TA LU, YU-CHUNG KUNG, CHAO-HSIEN LEE and MING-JEN PENG

      Version of Record online: 30 MAR 2011 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1440-1843.2011.01945.x

      BAL fluid sTREM-1 levels were measured in mechanically ventilated patients with or without culture-positive ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP). sTREM-1 concentrations were significantly higher in culture-positive VAP patients, and among these patients, sTREM-1 levels decreased significantly with time in survivors, but increased significantly with time in non-survivors.

    9. Clinical usefulness of B-type natriuretic peptide in the diagnosis of pleural effusions due to heart failure (pages 495–499)

      FELIPE C.A. MARINHO, FRANCISCO S. VARGAS, JOSÉ FABRI JR, MILENA M.P. ACENCIO, EDUARDO H. GENOFRE, LEILA ANTONANGELO, ROBERTA K.B. SALES and LISETE R. TEIXEIRA

      Version of Record online: 30 MAR 2011 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1440-1843.2011.01930.x

      Plasma and pleural fluid B-type natriuretic peptide concentrations were determined in 77 patients with pleural effusions and were shown to be useful in identifying effusions with a cardiac aetiology.

    10. A novel single-chain-Fv antibody against connective tissue growth factor attenuates bleomycin-induced pulmonary fibrosis in mice (pages 500–507)

      XIHUA WANG, GUOQIU WU, LIXIA GOU, ZHAOZHAO LIU, XIYONG WANG, XIAOBO FAN, LINYUAN WU and NAIFENG LIU

      Version of Record online: 30 MAR 2011 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1440-1843.2011.01938.x

      Connective tissue growth factor (CTGF) plays a critical role in fibrosis. A humanized single-chain variable fragment antibody (scFv) against CTGF inhibited collagen deposition and the severity of alveolitis and fibrosis in a mouse model. Anti-CTGF scFv may potentially be developed as a useful inhibitor of pulmonary fibrosis.

    11. Cigarette smoke modulates PGE2 and host defence against Moraxella catarrhalis infection in human airway epithelial cells (pages 508–516)

      WEIYUN ZHANG, STEPHANIE CASE, RUSSELL P. BOWLER, RICHARD J. MARTIN, DI JIANG and HONG WEI CHU

      Version of Record online: 30 MAR 2011 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1440-1843.2010.01920.x

      We determined the impact of cigarette smoke on cultured human (smokers and COPD patients) bronchial epithelial cell innate immune response to Moraxella catarrhalis infection. Cigarette smoke increased bacterial load, but decreased prostaglandin E2 (PGE2). Furthermore, PGE2 directly enhanced the production of human β-defensin-2, a well-known bactericidal molecule. Our results help clarify the role of PGE2 in mucosal innate immunity of COPD patients.

    12. The origin of frequency dependence of respiratory resistance: An airflow simulation study using a 4D pulmonary lobule model (pages 517–522)

      HIROKO KITAOKA

      Version of Record online: 30 MAR 2011 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1440-1843.2011.01925.x

      Airflow simulation with computational fluid dynamics by the use of a 4D lobule model revealed that frequency dependence of respiratory resistance measured by impulse oscillometry is an index of the alveolar pressure inequality caused by heterogeneous changes in the intra-pulmonary airway and/or the lung parenchyma.

    13. Regional ventilation distribution determined by electrical impedance tomography: Reproducibility and effects of posture and chest plane (pages 523–531)

      FLORIAN REIFFERSCHEID, GUNNAR ELKE, SVEN PULLETZ, BARBARA GAWELCZYK, INGMAR LAUTENSCHLÄGER, MARKUS STEINFATH, NORBERT WEILER and INÉZ FRERICHS

      Version of Record online: 30 MAR 2011 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1440-1843.2011.01929.x

      Posture-dependent redistribution of regional ventilation was determined by electrical impedance tomography in healthy subjects during spontaneous tidal breathing and VC manoeuvres. The ventilation distribution patterns within two examined chest cross-sections were dissimilar. The reproducibility of findings was good which is essential for future clinical follow-up examinations using this method.

    14. A multicentre surveillance study on the characteristics, bacterial aetiologies and in vitro antibiotic susceptibilities in patients with acute exacerbations of chronic bronchitis (pages 532–539)

      DAVID S. HUI, MARGARET IP, THOMAS LING, SHAN-CHWEN CHANG, CHUN-HSING LIAO, CHUL-GYU YOO, DEOG-KYEOM KIM, HO-IL YOON, VISIT UDOMPANICH, SOMKID MOGMEUD, RAZAK MUTTALIF, AZMI M. SALLEH, CAMILO ROA, MYRNA MENDOZA, CONCEPCION FAJARDO-ANG, PRIYANTI SOEPANDI, FATHIYAH ISBANIAH, ERLINA BURHAN, PRATIWI SUDARMONO, HADIARTO MANGUNNEGORO and HANS H. LIU

      Version of Record online: 30 MAR 2011 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1440-1843.2011.01943.x

      With the wide variations in the bacteria isolated across Asia, western COPD guidelines for antibiotic therapy may not be readily applicable and surveillance of the local prevalence and antibiotic resistance is important to guide management of acute exacerbations of COPD in these countries.
