A new model rat with acute bronchiolitis and its application to research on the toxicology of inhaled particulate matter. (1/342)

The aim of the present study was to establish a useful animal model that simulates humans sensitive to inhaled particulate matter (PM). We have developed a new rat model of acute bronchiolitis (Br) by exposing animals to NiCl2 (Ni) aerosols for five days. Three days following the Ni exposure, the animals developed signs of tachypnea, mucous hypersecretion, and bronchiolar inflammation which seemed to progress quickly during the fourth to fifth day. They recovered from lesions after four weeks in clean air. To assess the sensitivity of the Br rats to inhaled particles, two kinds of PM of respirable size were tested with doses similar to or a little higher to the recommended threshold limit values (TLVs) for the working environment in Japan. Titanium dioxide (TiO2 = Ti) was chosen as an inert and insoluble particles and vanadium pentoxide (V2O5 = V), as a representative soluble and toxic airborne material. The Br rats exposed to either Ti or V were compared the pathological changes in the lungs and the clearance of particles to those in normal control or Br rats kept in clean air. The following significant differences were observed in Br rats: 1. delayed recovery from pre-existing lesions or exacerbated inflammation, 2. reductions in deposition and clearance rate of inhaled particles with the progress of lesions. The present results suggest that Br rats are more susceptible to inhaled particles than control rats. Therefore, concentrations of particulate matter lower than the TLVs for Japan, which have no harmful effects on normal lungs, may not always be safe in the case of pre-existing lung inflammation.  (+info)

Seroprevalence of IgG antibodies to the chlamydia-like microorganism 'Simkania Z' by ELISA. (2/342)

The newly described microorganism 'Simkania Z', related to the Chlamydiae, has been shown to be associated with bronchiolitis in infants and community acquired pneumonia in adults. The prevalence of infection in the general population is unknown. A simple ELISA assay for the detection of serum IgG antibodies to 'Simkania Z' was used to determine the prevalence of such antibodies in several population samples in southern Israel (the Negev). The groups tested included 94 medical and nursing students, 100 unselected blood donors, 106 adult members of a Negev kibbutz (communal agricultural settlement), and 45 adult Bedouin, residents of the Negev. IgG antibodies to 'Simkania Z' were found in 55-80% of these presumably healthy individuals, independently of antibodies to Chlamydia trachomatis and Chlamydia pneumoniae. The Bedouin had a seropositivity rate of 80%, while all other groups had rates of between 55 and 64%. These results indicate that 'Simkania Z' infection is probably common in southern Israel.  (+info)

Pathological and radiological changes in resected lung specimens in Mycobacterium avium intracellulare complex disease. (3/342)

The present study was designed to evaluate the pathological and immunohistochemical findings of Mycobacterium avium intracellulare complex (MAC) lung infection. A retrospective study was performed in five cases with positive cultures for MAC in whom lung resections were performed between January 1989 and December 1996. A determination of whether or not MAC caused pulmonary disease was made using the 1997 criteria defined by the American Thoracic Society. In addition, MAC was cultured from all of the five lung specimens. Pathological and immunohistochemical findings as well as chest computed tomography (CT) findings were evaluated in these five patients. Pathological findings of bronchiectasis, bronchiolitis, centrilobular lesion, consolidation, cavity wall and nodules were demonstrated, respectively, in relation to chest CT findings. Extensive granuloma formation throughout the airways was clearly demonstrated. Immunohistochemical staining demonstrated: 1) epithelioid cells and giant cells; 2) myofibroblasts extensively infiltrating the cavity wall; and 3) B-cells detected in aggregates in the vicinity of the epithelioid granulomas. This study identified pathological and immunohistochemical characteristics of Mycobacterium avium complex infection relative to chest computed tomography findings and allowed the conclusion that bronchiectasis and bronchiolitis were definitely caused by Mycobacterium avium complex infection.  (+info)

Antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies in diffuse panbronchiolitis. (4/342)

BACKGROUND: There are some reports of the coexistence of chronic suppurative lung diseases such as cystic fibrosis and systemic vasculitis. Diffuse panbronchiolitis has the same characteristics as chronic recurrent sinopulmonary infection and respiratory bronchiolitis. METHODS: Serum samples from 30 patients with diffuse panbronchiolitis and 57 patients with other pulmonary diseases were tested to find the titer of myeloperoxidase antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies (MPO-ANCA). RESULTS: We found MPO-ANCA positivity in 4 patients with diffuse panbronchiolitis but not in those with other pulmonary diseases. CONCLUSIONS: Our findings show that MPO-ANCA is positive in some patients with diffuse panbronchiolitis. Careful attention should be paid to the combination of chronic pulmonary infection and various vasculitis.  (+info)

Clinical and immunoregulatory effects of roxithromycin therapy for chronic respiratory tract infection. (5/342)

The clinical and immunoregulatory effects of long-term macrolide antibiotic therapy for patients with chronic lower respiratory tract infections (CLRTI) were investigated. Clinical parameters and neutrophil chemotactic mediators in the epithelial lining fluid (ELF) of CLRTI patients (n = 10) were examined before and after 3 months oral administration of roxithromycin (RXM). The in vitro effects of RXM were also examined on the release of these mediators from alveolar macrophages (AM) and neutrophils. Arterial oxygen tension (p<0.05), vital capacity (VC) (p<0.001), %VC (p<0.05) and forced expiratory volume in one second (p<0.01) were improved after RXM treatment, but airway bacteria were not eradicated. Among the mediators, the levels of interleukin (IL)-8, neutrophil elastase (NE) and leukotriene B4 (LTB4) were higher in ELF than in plasma of CLRTI patients and they decreased after RXM treatment (n = 7, p<0.05 for each). RXM concentrations were significantly increased in the bronchoalveolar lavage cells of the treated patients. In in vitro experiments, RXM showed inhibitory effects on IL-8 release from AM and neutrophils. In conclusion, interleukin-8, neutrophil elastase and leukotriene B4 contribute to the neutrophilic inflammation in the airways of chronic lower respiratory tract infection patients and the clinical effects of roxithromycin may, in part, be attributable to the suppression of excess release of the chemotactic mediators from inflammatory cells.  (+info)

Clinical significance of respiratory bronchiolitis on open lung biopsy and its relationship to smoking related interstitial lung disease. (6/342)

BACKGROUND: Respiratory bronchiolitis-associated interstitial lung disease (RBILD) is a rare form of interstitial lung disease which may present in similar fashion to other types of chronic interstitial pneumonia. The purpose of this study was to undertake a clinicopathological review of 10 patients with RBILD and to examine the clinical and imaging data related to its histopathological pattern, in particular the relationship of RBILD to smoking. METHODS: Thirteen out of 168 retrospectively reviewed patients, from whom biopsy specimens were taken for suspected diffuse lung disease, were identified with a histopathological pattern of RBILD. Three cases were rejected as follow up data were unavailable. The 10 remaining cases constituted the study group and both clinical and imaging data were collected from patients' notes and referring physicians. RESULTS: Histopathologically, four cases of RBILD overlapped with the pattern of desquamative interstitial pneumonitis (DIP) and nine also had microscopic evidence of centrilobular emphysema. Nine patients were smokers, ranging from 3 to 80 pack years. The one non-smoker had an occupational exposure to the fumes of solder flux. The sex distribution was equal with an age range of 32-65 years. Two patients were clubbed. Lung function tests showed both restrictive and obstructive patterns together with severe reductions in carbon monoxide transfer factor in seven patients. Chest radiographs showed reticular or reticulonodular infiltrates in five patients and a ground glass pattern in two. CT scans were consistent with either DIP or RBILD in six of eight patients. Although seven patients remained stable or improved, either with or without treatment, three patients deteriorated. CONCLUSIONS: This study adds weight to the hypothesis that smoking can cause clinically significant interstitial lung disease, with deterioration in pulmonary function despite treatment. Given the overlapping histopathological patterns of RBILD and DIP and their strong association with smoking, the term "smoking related interstitial lung disease" is suggested for those patients who are smokers.  (+info)

Bronchiolitis in Kartagener's syndrome. (7/342)

The association of diffuse bronchiolitis in patients with Kartagener's syndrome (KS) has not been reported previously. The aim of this study was to present the morphological characteristics of bronchiolitis in patients with KS. Eight patients (four males, four females; mean age 37.9+/-18.7 yrs), clinically diagnosed as KS with the classical triad of chronic pansinusitis, bronchiectasis and situs in versus with dextrocardia, were evaluated. Routine chest radiography showed bronchiectasis and dextrocardia in all patients. Chest computed tomography (CT) showed diffuse centrilobular small nodules up to 2 mm in diameter throughout both lungs in six out of eight patients. Pulmonary function tests revealed marked obstructive impairment in all patients (forced expiratory volume in one second 57.0+/-11.3%, residual volume/total lung capacity 45.+/-12.7%, maximum midexpiratory flow 0.92+/-0.72 L x s(-1), forced vital capacity 74.1+/-12.2% (all mean +/- SD)). The examination of cilial movement of the bronchus revealed immotility in all of the five patients examined. The ultrastructure showed ciliary dynein arm defects in all patients. Histopathological examination of lung specimens obtained at autopsy or by video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery showed obliterative thickening of the walls of the membranous bronchioli with infiltration of lymphocytes, plasma cells and neutrophils, but most of the distal respiratory bronchioli were spared and alveolar spaces were overinflated. Pathologically, the diffuse centrilobular small nodules on the chest CT mainly corresponded to membranous bronchiolitis. This is the first report demonstrating that the association of diffuse bronchiolitis might be one of the characteristic features of the lung in Kartagener's syndrome.  (+info)

Respiratory syncytial virus infection and G and/or SH protein expression contribute to substance P, which mediates inflammation and enhanced pulmonary disease in BALB/c mice. (8/342)

A distinct clinical presentation of respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) infection of humans is bronchiolitis, which has clinical features similar to those of asthma. Substance P (SP), a tachykinin neuropeptide, has been associated with neurogenic inflammation and asthma; therefore, we chose to examine SP-induced inflammation with RSV infection. In this study, we examined the production of pulmonary SP associated with RSV infection of BALB/c mice and the effect of anti-SP F(ab)(2) antibodies on the pulmonary inflammatory response. The peak production of pulmonary SP occurred between days 3 and 5 following primary RSV infection and day 1 after secondary infection. Treatment of RSV-infected mice with anti-SP F(ab)(2) antibodies suggested that SP may alter the natural killer cell response to primary and secondary infection. In mice challenged after formalin-inactivated RSV vaccination, SP appears to markedly enhance pulmonary eosinophilia as well as increase polymorphonuclear cell trafficking to the lung. Based on studies with a strain of RSV that lacks the G and SH genes, the SP response to RSV infection appears to be associated with G and/or SH protein expression. These data suggest that SP may be an important contributor to the inflammatory response to RSV infection and that anti-SP F(ab)(2) antibodies might be used to ameliorate RSV-associated disease.  (+info)

Diffuse panbronchiolitis (DPB) is an inflammatory lung disease of unknown cause. It is a severe, progressive form of bronchiolitis, an inflammatory condition of the bronchioles (small air passages in the lungs). The term diffuse signifies that lesions appear throughout both lungs, while panbronchiolitis refers to inflammation found in all layers of the respiratory bronchioles (those involved in gas exchange). DPB causes severe inflammation and nodule-like lesions of terminal bronchioles, chronic sinusitis, and intense coughing with large amounts of sputum production. The disease is believed to occur when there is susceptibility, or a lack of immune system resistance, to DPB-causing bacteria or viruses, caused by several genes that are found predominantly in individuals of East Asian descent. The highest incidence occurs among Japanese people, followed by Koreans. DPB occurs more often in males, and usually begins around age 40.

Diffuse refers to the distribution of the lesions throughout both lungs, and pan- refers to the involvement of inflammation in all layers of the respiratory bronchioles. Onset of the disorder occurs in the second to fifth decade of life, and is clinically manifest by chronic cough, exertional dyspnea, and sputum production. Most patients also have chronic paranasal sinusitis. If untreated, the disorder progresses to bronchiectasis, respiratory failure, and death (summary by {10:Poletti et al., 2006 ...
I dont remember exactly when I started speaking in medical terms, it just sort of happened. I used to define Evey and Bens illnesses in normal every day terms. Fast heart beat. Barky cough. Old man cough - I really did say that once when Ben was wheezing really bad because I didnt know how else to describe it. Now terms like sinus rhythm, tachycardia, bronchiolitis, chronic lung disease are part of my every day vocabulary and I am frequently asked by health care professionals if Im a nurse. Nope. Just a mom.. So Im digressing. Bens chest x-ray was negative yesterday. AWESOME. Ben has non-RSV bronchiolitis. Again. Not awesome. Non RSV bronchiolitis - what is it? Its essentially RSV without the actual RSV virus. So what is that? Its swelling of the teeny tiny airways in his lungs and is caused by a virus that infects the lower part of his lungs. It causes a nasty cough, shortness of breath, a runny nose, and wheezing, really bad wheezing. Most kids dont get this unless they fall into a ...

Acute bronchiolitis is an infection of the lower respiratory tract causing inflammation of the small airways, leading to bronchiolar obstruction. Corticosteroids are frequently prescribed as anti-inflammatory drugs. The usefulness of corticosteroids for this disease remains controversial, despite many randomized controlled trials (RCTs). Recently, a meta-analysis and systemic review showed significant improvement in clinical symptoms, length of hospital stay and duration of symptoms in children with this disease after treatment with various regimens of systemic corticosteroids.. Dexamethasone is a long acting corticosteroid with biologic half-life ranging from 36-72 hours. A single dose of dexamethasone has been the standard recommendation for the treatment of croup which has a similar pathophysiology without evidence of adverse effects. Furthermore, there is no previous report of this single dosage form of dexamethasone for the treatment of acute bronchiolitis in young children. ...
In our study we found eight clinical predictors of admission in infants with acute bronchiolitis. We also developed a clinical risk scoring system which can be used in the emergency department to aid clinical decision making. This scoring system is simple and easy to use, making it applicable to a busy clinical setting. It was developed in a large number of children who were consecutively recruited using a retrospective sample which eliminated any potential observer bias. It employs only objective clinical parameters, limiting the potential for variability when used by different clinicians. The scoring system was developed with clinical applicability as a priority rather than the maximisation of statistical accuracy.. While other studies have looked at predictors of admission in children with bronchiolitis, no other studies have only included infants in their study population. Although in some countries bronchiolitis is diagnosed up to the age of five, a large majority of those admitted to ...

If like me, I never even knew that Bronchiolitis could kill a child?" she wrote.. "You here[sic] about meningitis, measles, mumps and rubella all being serious childhood illnesses but no body tells you about Bronchiolitis and after speaking with other parents and doctors it is more common than I ever realised especially at this time of year.". Bronchiolitis is an infection of the lungs that causes an inflammation in the bronchioles, the smallest airways that carry oxygen to the lungs.. The ailment is often the result of a virus, and usually develops during the winter months. Symptoms can include:. -Runny nose. -Stuffy nose. -Cough. -Slight fever (but not always). -Wheezing. -Difficulty breathing. -An ear infection in some infants. There is no cure for bronchiolitis, but it usually goes away of its own accord within a few weeks, according to the Mayo Clinic.. Its not clear why sepsis occurs, but it happens when the immune system stops fighting an infection and starts attacking the body instead. ...
Bronchiolitis is a common cause of pediatric hospitalization. Variation in the use of tests and treatments for management of bronchiolitis exists, some of which may contribute to increased health care costs that are estimated to be $545 million annual total direct expenditure nationally.1 In 2006, the American Academy of Pediatrics published a national clinical practice guideline (CPG) for management of children with bronchiolitis.2 The CPG does not recommend routine tests and treatments, emphasizing a diagnosis of bronchiolitis based on history and physical examination, and supportive management. Nevertheless, nationally, there is a wide variation in use of tests and treatments in the management of bronchiolitis.2-4. CPGs can be a powerful resource to reduce variation and help providers deliver disease-specific best practice.5,6 Therefore, many national organizations support development of CPGs.7-9 Integrating a CPG into practice requires changes in physician behaviors and remains a significant ...

The findings of this prospective study contribute to the debate that is ongoing about RSV/non-RSV bronchiolitis at infancy as an asthma predictive factor. This study contributes new data to the debate on bronchiolitis admissions at age ,6 months. However, the reported rate of asthma in the follow-up group was notably lower than what has been reported in previous research. Future research should focus on investigating further the mechanisms of viral etiology in bronchiolitis and whether it can contribute to early-life risk factors for developing asthma. ...
Despite bronchiolitis is a very frequent disease among infants, there are still controversies regarding its treatment. Hypertonic saline has been proposed as useful treatment in these children, bur information is still controversial.. The aim is to asses that using Nebulized Hypertonic Saline with bronchodilators (albuterol) may reduce the days of hospitalization and improve clinical outcomes in patients with acute bronchiolitis, compared with using Normal Saline with albuterol. ...
The following was adapted from the Canadian Pediatric Societys statement on "Bronchiolitis: Recommendations for diagnosis, monitoring and management of children one to 24 months of age." Please see the full statement for the full recommendations from the Canadian Pediatric Society.. Background:. Bronchiolitis is a viral lower respiratory tract infection that leads to obstruction of the small airways. Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is responsible for most cases, however other viruses can cause a similar clinical picture. In Canada, RSV season usually begins between November and January and persists for four to five months. Bronchiolitis affects more than one third of children in the first two years of life and is the most common cause of admission to hospital in the first year. Despite being so common, there is great variation in standards for diagnosis and management of bronchiolitis, which you may see in clinical practice. These guidelines incorporate the most recent evidence to provide ...
Background: Bronchiolitis is a serious, potentially life-threatening respiratory illness commonly affecting babies. It is often caused by respiratory syncytial virus (RSV). Antibiotics are not recommended for bronchiolitis unless there is concern about complications such as secondary bacterial pneumonia or respiratory failure. Nevertheless, they are used at rates of 34% to 99% in uncomplicated cases. Objectives: To evaluate the effectiveness of antibiotics for bronchiolitis. Search methods: We searched the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL 2010, issue 4), which includes the Cochrane Acute Respiratory Infection Groups Specialised Register, and the Database of Abstracts of Reviews of Effects, MEDLINE (January 1966 to November 2010), EMBASE (1990 to December 2010) and Current Contents (2001 to December 2010). Selection criteria: Randomised controlled trials (RCTs) comparing antibiotics to placebo in children under two years diagnosed with bronchiolitis, using clinical criteria
The WHO has recently updated its guidelines for the management of acute respiratory infections (ARIs) in children. These guidelines include the differential diagnosis of cough and difficult breathing, and separate guidelines for the management of pneumonia, bronchiolitis and asthma. This recognises the core issue behind the study in this edition of Archives by Dr Vishwanath Gowraiah and colleagues from four hospitals in India; that many children who fulfil WHOs traditional criteria for pneumonia (cough and difficult breathing with or without chest in-drawing) have wheezy viral infections.1 The WHO guideline, contained in the second edition of the Pocket Book of Hospital Care for Children,2 lists the clinical features in favour of pneumonia, bronchiolitis, asthma and other common and less common causes of cough and respiratory distress.. The relevance of making the distinction between acute wheezy bronchiolitis, asthma and pneumonia is that there are groups of children who do not need ...
Since these respiratory viruses, especially RSV, produce so much illness in young children and are a major cause of medical visits and costs, much research currently is underway. This research is focused on developing effective vaccines to prevent RSV and to prevent infection with some of the other respiratory viruses, such as the parainfluenza and influenza viruses. Although a number of vaccines for the prevention of RSV have been tested in clinical trials, they have yet to be approved for general use. A number of vaccines, which contain live, but weakened, or inactive parts of the virus, appear promising and are being tested further. In addition, a number of antiviral drugs are being developed and tested for both preventing and treating the viruses that cause bronchiolitis.. top. References.

BACKGROUND: The observation of an increased prevalence of allergic disorders coinciding with a decreasing frequency of infectious diseases in early childhood has led to the speculation that infections may prevent allergic sensitization. Information on the role of parasites in this context is limited. Bronchiolitis in infancy has been linked with asthmatic symptoms later in childhood, although the underlying cause of this association is unknown. METHODS: To test the hypothesis that early parasitic infections in infancy might prevent the development of allergic manifestations later in life, the effect of malaria infections during the first year of life on the risk of bronchiolitis was studied in 675 Tanzanian children at 18 months of age. The study was conducted as part of an intervention trial of malaria chemoprophylaxis and/or iron supplementation for the prevention of malaria and anemia in infants. RESULTS: The incidence of bronchiolitis up to 18 months of age in the 675 children was 0.58 ...
These RCTs were well designed, with low overall risk of bias, albeit with some imperfections. Wu and colleagues study was underpowered to detect a planned difference of 30% in admission rate or 24 h in LOS. There was no objective severity of illness criteria for inclusion, admission or discharge readiness, making clinician bias a potential issue. Florin and colleagues included a wide severity-of-illness range (Respiratory Distress Assessment Index (RDAI)4-15) and utilised the RACS (calculated using change in RDAI and respiratory rate), as short-term proxy outcome for need for hospitalisation. Their study was not powered for detection of a change in admission rate.. The RDAI has poor discriminative and construct validity in predicting hospitalisation and LOS in bronchiolitis, in part because it does not include respiratory rate or O2 saturation, both important variables for a clinician to determine disposition.3 Wu and colleagues reaffirm this limitation-although they reported no significant ...
Bronchiolitis is a condition that can make infants alarmingly ill and breathless, and it tends to recur each time a child gets an upper respiratory virus in the first two years of life. When faced with a wheezy sounding baby or toddler breathing 60 times a minute, many doctors cannot resist the temptation to try a β adrenergic inhaler. But resist they should. The latest Cochrane review of bronchodilators for bronchiolitis concludes: "Bronchodilators such as albuterol or salbutamol do not improve oxygen saturation, do not reduce hospital admission after outpatient treatment, do not shorten the duration of hospitalization and do not reduce the time to resolution of illness at home." (Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews 2014;6:CD001266.)​ ...

Understanding why some children develop severe bronchiolitis while most children experience an upper respiratory tract infection upon RSV infection remains essential and needs to be answered to improve the care of RSV-infected children in the future. Where several previous studies focused on the microbial content involved in bronchiolitis, most notably by Hasegawa and coworkers, our study exclusively focused on RSV-implicated bronchiolitis [29, 30]. RSV disease severity is a multifactorial problem, in which the viral load and the inflammatory response are important drivers of disease, although this is mainly true in previously healthy children whose airways are normal [6, 7, 12]. An important question this study tried to answer is whether nasopharyngeal microbiome composition relates to local viral load and exerts an influence on mucosal immune responses. Viral load and mucosal immune responses are thought to directly impact disease severity, and therefore, it is difficult to disentangle these ...
Bronchiolitis is a pathological description that has come to be used as a clinical diagnosis. It is primarily a disease of the small airways, causing these to be obstructed by inflammatory exudate. More than 70% of cases are caused by respiratory syncytial virus, which in temperate climates results in a sharp winter epidemic lasting two to five months.1 Bronchiolitis is a disease of infancy, characterised by cough, fever, tachypnoea, diffuse crackles, hyperinflation, and chest retraction. Wheezes are a less constant feature,1 2 3 and bronchiolitis should be distinguishable clinically from infantile asthma by the presence of widespread crackles. Unfortunately, the diagnostic criteria for bronchiolitis have varied considerably, with consequent blurring of the distinction between it and asthma.4. Over 95% of infants have been infected with respiratory syncytial virus by the end of their second winter; 40% of the infections in infancy affect the lower respiratory tract,1 2 3 4 5 although only about ...
Bronchiolitis is defined as an acute inflammation of bronchioles in the lower respiratory tract that results in airway obstruction with accompanying progressive dyspnea and poor feeding. This condition is most commonly observed in children under 2 years of age, with a peak age between 2 and 6 months.
You can help prevent the spread of bronchiolitis. Wash your hands or use an alcohol-based hand cleaner before and after touching your child. While your child has symptoms, keep him or her away from other children. Your child may also need a palivizumab shot. During RSV season, these shots are recommended for high-risk babies. High-risk babies include those born early or those with lung, heart, or immune system diseases. Talk with your childs healthcare provider about whether the shot is right for your child. ...

Bronchiolitis is an acute inflammatory injury of the bronchioles that is usually caused by a viral infection. Although it may occur in persons of any age, severe symptoms are usually only evident in young infants; the larger airways of older children and adults better accommodate mucosal edema.
The lungs of three infants, two with bronchiolitis and one with pneumonia, were examined by fluorescent antibody techniques for the distribution of respiratory syncytial (R.S.) virus, and also for the presence of human globulin. In bronchiolitis the lungs contained little virus, whereas in pneumonia virus was abundant and widespread; and, paradoxically, while in bronchiolitis human globulin had the same scanty distribution as virus it was absent in pneumonia. It is suggested that the essential process in bronchiolitis is a widespread type 1 allergic reaction dependent on a second encounter with R.S. virus antigen, whereas in R.S. virus pneumonia the mucosal necrosis and alveolar and interstitial inflammation are the result of direct virus damage to the lungs. The alternative explanation put forward is that the process may be a type 3 allergic reaction.. ...

When compared to children with each CC of TLR4 polymorphism or TT of CD14 polymorphism or GG of IL13 polymorphism and no past history of bronchiolitis, children with CT or TT of TLR4 polymorphism and past history of bronchiolitis had 4.23 and 5.34 times higher risk to develop asthma, respectively; children with TT of CD14 polymorphism and past history of bronchiolitis had 3.57 and 7.22 times higher risk for asthma, respectively; children with GA or AA of IL-13 polymorphism and past history of bronchiolitis had 3.21 and 4.13 times higher risk for asthma, respectively. ...
There may be a link between bronchiolitis and developing respiratory conditions such as asthma in later life. However, the link isnt fully understood. Its not clear whether having bronchiolitis as an infant increases your risk of developing asthma later in life, or whether there are environmental or genetic (inherited) factors that cause both bronchiolitis and asthma. If your child has repeated bouts of bronchiolitis, their risk of developing asthma later in life may be increased. ...

Bronchiolitis is an acute infectious disease of the lower respiratory tract that occurs primarily in young infants, most often in those aged 2-24 months. Seventy-five percent of cases of bronchiolitis occur in children younger than 1 year, and 95% in children younger than 2 years. Incidence peaks in those aged 2-8 months. Annual incidence is 11.4% in infants younger than 1 year and 6% in those aged 1-2 years. The illness accounts for 4500 deaths and 90,000 hospital admissions per year. Prevalence may be higher in urban areas [9].. Bronchiolitis is usually because of a viral infection of the small airways. Infection of bronchiolar respiratory and ciliated epithelial cells produces increased mucus secretion, cell death, and sloughing, followed by a peribronchiolar lymphocytic infiltrate and submucosal edema. The combination of debris and edema produces critical narrowing and obstruction of small airways. Decreased ventilation of portions of the lung causes ventilation perfusion mismatching, ...

Reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction was used to detect segments of the M (matrix), N (nucleoprotein), and F (fusion) genes of human metapneumovirus in bronchoalveolar fluid from 30 infants with severe respiratory syncytial virus bronchiolitis. Seventy percent of them were coinfected with metapneumovirus. Such coinfection might be a factor influencing the severity of bronchiolitis.
In RSV bronchiolitis, neutrophils, account for ,80% of cells recovered from airways in bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) fluid. We investigated neutrophil activation and toll-like receptor (TLR) expression in the blood and lungs of infants with severe RSV bronchiolitis.. Methods: BAL and (blood) samples were collected from 24 (16) preterm and 23 (15) term infants, ventilated with RSV bronchiolitis, and 12 (8) control infants. We measured protein and mRNA expression of CD11b, myeloperoxidase (MPO) and TLR 2,4,7,8,9 in neutrophils.. Results: Blood neutrophils had more CD11b in preterm and term bronchiolitic infants, than control infants (P,0.025) but similar amounts of MPO. BAL neutrophils from bronchiolitic infants had increased amounts of CD11b and MPO than blood neutrophils and BAL neutrophils from controls (P,0.01). Blood neutrophils from term RSV infants had less total TLR4 protein than preterm RSV infants (P=0.005) and both had less than controls (P,0.04). Total TLR4 for each group was greater in ...

Bronchiolitis is a viral-induced lower respiratory tract infection that occurs predominantly in children < 2 years of age, particularly infants. Many viruses have been proven or attributed to cause bronchiolitis, including and most commonly the respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) and rhinovirus. RSV is responsible for more severe disease and complications (including hospitalisation) in bronchiolitis patients. Whereas bronchiolitis is exclusively due to respiratory viral infections, with little evidence of bacterial co-infection, the former could nevertheless predispose to superimposed bacterial infections. Although data support an interaction between RSV and pneumococcal superimposed infections, it should be noted that this specifically refers to children who are hospitalised with RSV-associated pneumonia, and not to children with bronchiolitis or milder outpatient RSV-associated illness. As such, empiric antibiotic treatment against pneumococcus in children with RSV-associated pneumonia is only
Aim: To investigate the relationship between the polymorphism of CA microsatellite(rs3138557) in IFNgamma gene and theseverity to respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) infection.. Methods: The IFNgamma CA microsatellite was tested in 218 RSV bronchiolitis inpatients and 303 healthy children as control. The severity of RSV bronchiolitis was evaluated by standardized respiratory scoring system. Results: (1) The frequencies of CA12+/CA12+, CA12+/CA12- and CA12-/CA12- in the RSV bronchiolitis group were11%, 55.05% and35.95% respectively. The frequencies in the control group were19.47%, 52.81% and 27.72% respectively. The gene polymorphism of IFN gamma CA repeats between both groups was statistically different (P = 0.024)..

Bronchiolitis is the most common acute infection of the airways and lungs during the first years of life. It is caused by viruses, the most common being respiratory syncytial virus. The illness starts similarly to a cold, with symptoms such as a runny nose, mild fever and cough. It later leads to fast, troubled and often noisy breathing (for example, wheezing). While the disease is often mild for most healthy babies and young children, it is a major cause of clinical illness and financial health burden worldwide. Hospitalizations have risen in high-income countries, there is substantial healthcare use, and bronchiolitis may be linked with preschool wheezing disorders and the child later developing asthma.. There is variation in how physicians manage bronchiolitis, reflecting the absence of clear scientific evidence for any treatment approach. Bronchodilators are drugs that are often used for asthma attacks to relax the muscles in the airways so that breathing is easier. Epinephrine is one type ...
Patients baseline characteristics were similar between the two periods. P2 is associated with a significant decrease in the length of ventilation (LOV) (4.1 ± 3.5 versus 6.9 ± 4.6 days, p , 0.001), PICU length of stay (LOS) (6.2 ± 4.6 versus 9.7 ± 5.5 days, p , 0.001) and hospital LOS. nCPAP was independently associated with a shorter duration of ventilatory support than MV (hazard ratio 1.8, 95 % CI 1.5-2.2, p , 0.001). nCPAP was also associated with a significant decrease in ventilation-associated complications, and less invasive management. The mean cost of acute viral bronchiolitis-related PICU hospitalizations was significantly decreased, from 17,451 to 11,205 € (p , 0.001). Implementation of nCPAP led to a reduction of the total annual cost of acute viral bronchiolitis hospitalizations of 715,000 €.. ...

This dreaded inflammation is none other than bronchiolitis, an acute disease that affects the bronchioles, that is to say, the small airways located within the pulmonary lobules. While the disease is usually due to a respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), of which the mode of transmission is usually quite fast. However, keep in mind that other viruses may also be responsible for bronchiolitis.. Contrary to what one might think, bronchiolitis cannot be treated with drugs traditionally prescribed in cases of bronchitis since, in this case, they have no effect on the disease. Thus, the only standard treatment that one can resort to is chest physiotherapy, a therapeutic treatment that can effectively unclog congested airways, thanks to a series of very specific chest massages. However, it is useful to know that it is strongly recommended to resort to physical therapy when the infection is still in its early stages. Neglecting this important step increases the risk of even more important bronchial ...
In the metropolitan area of Barcelona, as well as in other Spanish cities, air quality is getting worse by the year. At the same time, projections of temperature and rainfall alert us to future increases in both parameters.1 In this context, studies assessing the influence of climate and air pollution in children, particularly in relation to respiratory diseases, are necessary. A recent systematic review confirmed the association between exposure to air pollutants (particulate matter with diameters ,2.5μm [PM2.5] and ,10μm [PM10], nitrogen dioxide [NO2] and sulfur dioxide [SO2]) and the risk of hospital admission due to bronchiolitis.2 A study conducted in primary health care centres in Madrid concluded that NO2 levels (particularly those exceeding 40μg/m3) were associated with increases in paediatric respiratory disease.3 To our knowledge, no similar studies have been done in Barcelona.. As a pilot study, we analysed data for 391 patients from the metropolitan area of Barcelona admitted with ...

Humidified low-flow oxygen (0.5 - 3 litres/minute) applied by nasal prongs is effective for hypoxic children. Nasal prongs give a maximum inspired oxygen of 28 - 35% except in small infants, when higher oxygen concentrations may be obtained. Headbox oxygen is an alternative that is well tolerated by young infants. It requires no humidification, but high flow and a mixing device are needed to ensure that the correct oxygen concentration is delivered. However, there is wastage of oxygen and the delivered oxygen concentration (FiO2) is unpredictable. Facemask oxygen delivers between 28% and 65% oxygen at a flow rate of 6 - 10 l/min. In severely hypoxic infants who are not ventilated, oxygen should be administered using a polymask, which enables FiO2 concentrations of 60 - 80% to be achieved. Oxygen should be weaned when the child improves clinically and with resolution of hypoxia. Rapid short-acting bronchodilator therapy has shown modest benefits in the treatment of bronchiolitis.20 ...
The pathological changes are described in 22 children with proven or suspected virus infection of the lower respiratory tract. Two main patterns of disease were found: acute bronchiolitis and interstitial pneumonia. Particular viruses were not specifically associated with particular histological changes. The prime importance of the respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) as a cause of disease and death in young infants is again shown. Structural lesions and clinical dysfunction correlate fairly well; in acute bronchiolitis the main lesion is epithelial necrosis when a dense plug is formed in the bronchiolar lumen leading to trapping air and other mechanical interference with ventilation: in interstitial pneumonia there is widespread inflammation and necrosis of lung parenchyma, and severe lesions of the bronchial and bronchiolar mucosa as well. The implications of these structural changes for clinical management are discussed. The possibility of a hypersensitivity reaction in the cot death syndrome is ...

The influence of age and maternal antibodies on the antibody responses to human respiratory syncytial virus (hRSV) glycoproteins in very young children has been a matter of controversy. Both, immaturity of the immune system at very early age and suppression of the host immune response by high level of maternal antibodies have been claimed to limit the host antibody response to virus infection and to jeopardize the use of hRSV vaccines under development in that age group. Hence, the antibody responses to the two major hRSV glycoproteins (F and G) were evaluated in children younger than 2 years, hospitalized with laboratory confirmed hRSV bronchiolitis ...
Bronchiolitis is an acute inflammatory disease of the lower respiratory tract that is characterized by acute inflammation, edema, and necrosis of epithelial cells lining small airways, increased mucous production, and bronchospasm.1 The term describes a clinical syndrome that occurs in infancy and is characterized by rapid respiration, chest retractions, wheezing, and, frequently, hypoxia. It is a disease that occurs almost exclusively in children younger than 2 years. It is the leading cause of hospitalization in infancy in the United States, accounting for 3% of all hospitalizations. This results in nearly 150,000 hospital admissions per year with an associated annual cost over $500 million.2 There is evidence that hospitalization rates are increasing as well. It has a seasonal pattern, being most common in the winter and spring.3 ...
RESPIRATORY INFECTIONSaltier saline cuts hospital admissionsChildren with bronchiolitis who are treated with an inhaled saline solution with a much higher salt content than typical saline are less likely to be admitted to the hospital than those given regular inhaled saline, according to a study at UCSF Benioff Childrens Hospital Oakland and Childrens Hospital Los Angeles. In the emergency room, the illness is usually treated with an inhaled saline solution, but doctors have been studying the use of hypertonic saline solution, which is roughly equal to the salt content of the ocean. The new study, which included about 400 patients in Oakland and Los Angeles, found that among children given the hypertonic saline in the emergency room, 29 percent were hospitalized, compared to 43 percent of children who received the regular saline.

We presented a general analytical approach to investigate whether spatial variation in medium-term changes in air pollution were associated with changes in the occurrence of a health outcome. This approach is particularly useful for outcomes which are counts (eg, hospital admissions or deaths), since the difference between counts may be negative and therefore not Poisson distributed. By comparison, changes over time in normally distributed outcomes can be modelled in a relatively straightforward fashion as the difference between the outcome at two points in time.. In the main analysis, wards with larger decreases in NOx concentration had, on average, larger decreases (or smaller increases) in admissions for heart failure, respiratory disease and bronchiolitis after adjusting for potential confounders. However, there was substantial spatial dependence in the data, and only the adjusted association for bronchiolitis remained after accounting for the dependence. That we observed a significant ...
Most children with bronchiolitis have mild symptoms and recover within 2 to 3 weeks, but its important to look out for signs of more serious problems, such as breathing difficulties.. Early symptoms of bronchiolitis tend to appear within a few days of becoming infected. Theyre usually similar to those of a common cold, such as a blocked or runny nose, a cough, and a slightly high temperature (fever).. The symptoms usually get worse during the next few days before gradually improving. During this time, your child may develop some of the following symptoms:. ...

It has been suggested that the estimated date of confinement (EDC) may be used to predict the length of hospital stay for sick newborns. We have found this method unreliable and designed the following study to develop a mathematical model to predict length of stay (LOS). We reviewed the records of 393 neonates. Statistical analysis was performed using multiple linear regression. The factors that reached statistical significance were birth weight (BW), gestational age (GA), and a combined respiratory score (RES). The RES was developed to quantify the degree of initial respiratory illness. Through this model we developed the following formula: log(e) (LOS) = 4.395-0.023 (GA) -0.00054(BW) + 0.0274 (RES). The R value is 0.78. The model predicts an LOS +/- 10 days in 73% of cases. Overall, this model yields a 29% improvement in predictability of LOS compared with a model which used EDC only. This formula may provide useful information for parents and caregivers of hospitalized neonates ...

Boy we have gone through a rough few months! I dont want to go into too much detail, but it has been hard. So just when I get healed up from my c-section, I had to get my gallbladder removed a few weeks ago. That was brutal! Thank goodness my Grandma came up and stayed with us. She is amazing! She took care of the kiddos for me and made dinner and cleaned and everything! I dont know what I would have done if she hadnt been there. Then Quincy came down with a really high fever and with her history we have to get her treated right away. Two instacare visits and a night spent in the ER, a fever of 104.9 at one point, and two medication changes, they finally got her better. The worst part was that Deacon ended up getting very sick and had to be put in the hospital. He had viral bronchiolitis and had to be hooked up to all these monitors and machines and IVs and get his lungs suctioned out and be given medications so that he could breathe. It was so sad! They even had to take blood from out of his ...
Section 2 Mum says that Georges cough seems to be worse at night but has not responded to over the counter treatments. She reports that he has always had a weak chest since a hospital admission for bronchiolitis as a baby. Mum says George is smaller than his classmates, which she puts down to him being a faddy eater. One of his brothers has been diagnosed as having asthma and mum confesses that she has tried George on both his blue reliever and corticosteroid inhalers with good effect on his symptoms. She was not worried about doing this as they also share their eczema creams. You suspect that George may be atopic based on this information.

Contact your GP if your child has symptoms of bronchiolitis. A diagnosis is usually based on the symptoms and an examination of your childs breathing. Your GP will ask about your childs symptoms - for example, whether theyve had a runny nose, cough or high temperature (fever) and for how long. Theyll also listen to your childs breathing using a stethoscope, to check for any crackling or high-pitched wheezing as your child breathes in and out. If your child hasnt been feeding very well or has been vomiting, your GP may also look for signs of dehydration, which include: ...

BACKGROUND: Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is the most important pathogen causing severe lower respiratory tract infection (LRTI) in infants. Epidemiologic and basic studies suggest that vitamin D may protect against RSV LRTI. OBJECTIVE: To determine the association between plasma vitamin D concentrations at birth and the subsequent risk of RSV LRTI. DESIGN: A prospective birth cohort study was performed in healthy term neonates. Concentrations of 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25-OHD) in cord blood plasma were related to RSV LRTI in the first year of life, defined as parent-reported LRTI symptoms in a daily log and simultaneous presence of RSV RNA in a nose-throat specimen. RESULTS: The study population included 156 neonates. Eighteen (12%) developed RSV LRTI. The mean plasma 25-OHD concentration was 82 nmol/L. Overall, 27% of neonates had 25-OHD concentrations < 50 nmol/L, 27% had 50-74 nmol/L and only 46% had 25-OHD 75 nmol/L. Cord blood 25-OHD concentrations were strongly associated with ...

Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in AOE and NRF2 genes have been associated with various lung disorders. To test whether specific NRF2 and/or AOE gene SNPs in children with RSV lower respiratory tract infection were associated with disease severity, one hundred and forty one children ,24 month of age with bronchiolitis were assessed for seven AOE and two NRF2 SNPs, and data were correlated with disease severity, which was determined by need of oxygen ...

Aim: Infants with viral bronchiolitis are often hospitalised with a proportion requiring respiratory support. The aim of this review was to examine the use of nasal prong continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) as a management strategy for infants with a diagnosis of bronchiolitis, who required stabilisation and transport to a tertiary centre.. Method: A retrospective audit of infants with bronchiolitis requiring CPAP during transport between January 2003 and June 2007.. Results: Nasal CPAP was initiated in 54 infants with 51 of these (34 ex-preterm, 17 term) subsequently continuing on CPAP during retrieval. Mean CPAP pressure was 7 cmH2O. Oxygenation improved between stabilisation and the end of retrieval (P , 0.01). During retrieval, there was no significant increase in transcutaneous CO2, no infant required endotracheal ventilation and no adverse events were noted. Five infants were intubated within the first 24 h of admission at the receiving hospital.. Conclusion: This review ...
Lung transplant survival is usually limited by obliterative bronchiolitis (OB), but the mechanisms of OB development are unknown. CD4, T-cells, lung transplantation, Th17 cells, STAT3, T-cells Introduction Lung transplantation is usually a useful therapeutic option for patients with end-stage lung diseases. The major obstacle limiting lung transplant survival and function is usually chronic lung allograft dysfunction (CLAD), Cichoric Acid IC50 with one of the major manifestations being obliterative bronchiolitis (OB) with fibrous obliteration of the airways (1). Progressive air passage injury mediated by ongoing alloimmune and nonalloimmune responses to the lung allograft is usually thought to be the precursor of subsequent graft CALML3 fibrosis (2). OB/BOS remains one of the major limitations to long term success of lung transplant with approximately 50% of lung transplant recipients affected by 5 years (3). Recently, IL-17 and T helper 17 (Th17) cells have been linked to OB/BOS development ...

The differential diagnosis for centrilobular densities generally falls into the category of peribronchiolar disease, but may include perilymphatic or perivascular disease. Centrilobular densities with a "tree-in-bud" appearance are usually due to endo/peribronchiolar diseases and may be seen with bronchopneumonia (particularly in regions peripheral to frank consolidation), bronchiectasis and cystic fibrosis, bronchogenic spread of tuberculosis, bronchiolitis obliterans and bronchiolitis obliterans organizing pneumonia, respiratory bronchiolitis, and hypersensitivity pneumonia [2]..

All, I was always under the impression that RSV+ children have a low rate of SBI but still run the risk of UTI. A colleague of mine is quoting a recent EMRAP episode which discourages checking the UA in bronchiolitis. What is the deal with urine testing in patients with bronchiolitis? This came from two studies. • Kuppermann N et al. Risks for bacteremia and urinary tract infections in young febrile children with bronchiolitis. Arch Pediatr Adolesc Med. 1997 Dec;151(12):1207-14. PMID: 9412595. He found a 2% prevalence of urinary tract infection with concomitant RSV. • Levine DA et al. Risk of serious bacterial infection in young febrile infants with respiratory syncytial virus infections. Pediatrics. 2004 Jun;113(6):1728-34. PMID: 15173498. Found a similar rate. • However, this is similar to the baseline rate of culture-positive urine in asymptomatic children under the age of 3 years, randomly selected for testing. You dont need to check the urine in febrile children with bronchiolitis. ...
A histologic term referring to two broad groups of lesions: proliferative bronchiolitis obliterans with granulation tissue polyps filling small airways, and fibrotic bronchiolitis obliterans with permanent scarring and stenosis or obliteration of airways. Proliferative bronchiolitis obliterans is often associated with organizing pneumonia in which the same reparative reaction that is present in the bronchiole extends out into more distal parenchyma. Histologic bronchiolitis obliterans may or may not be associated with clinical evidence of airway obstruction ...
Chronic allograft dysfunction in form of bronchiolitis obliterans is the most important hurdle to improved longterm survival after clinical lung transplantation to date. Recently, it was observed that the progression of bronchiolitis obliterans in lung transplant recipients might be inhibited by macrolide antibiotics. The authors therefore tested whether macrolide therapy can attenuate fibrous obliteration of airways in an animal model of bronchiolitis obliterans. Rats with heterotopic tracheal allografts were treated intraperitoneally with clarithromycin and compared to untreated transplanted animals with respect to allograft histology and expression of selected cytokines. At day 21 after transplantation, the tracheal allografts of treated animals were free of fibrous material or partially occluded dependent of clarithromycin dosage. Untreated animals had completely obliterated allografts. In treated animals, tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha) was down-regulated early (5 days) and late (21 ...

Bronchiolitis obliterans (OB) is a lesion that results when injury to small conducting airways is repaired by a proliferation of fibrous granulation tissue. Bronchiolitis obliterans has emerged as a main cause of morbidity and mortality in the setting of lung and heart-lung transplantation. Endothelin-1 lET-1), initially discovered as a vasoconstrictive peptide, has a mitogenic activity on vascular smooth cells and airway epithelial cells. Overproduction of endothelin has been reported in patients with OB or chronic rejection after lung transplantation. It is still undetermined whether locally overexpressed ET-1 has a potential impact in the ...
Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) infection is ubiquitous with almost all infants having been infected by 2 years of age and lifelong repeated infections common. It is the second largest cause of mortality, after malaria, in infants outside the neonatal period and causes up to 200,000 deaths per year worldwide. RSV results in clinical syndromes that include upper respiratory tract infections, otitis media, bronchiolitis (up to 80% of cases) and lower respiratory tract disease including pneumonia and exacerbations of asthma or viral-induced wheeze. For the purposes of this review we will focus on RSV bronchiolitis in infants in whom the greatest disease burden lies. For infants requiring hospital admission, the identification of the causative respiratory virus is used to direct cohorting or isolation and infection control procedures to minimize nosocomial transmission. Nosocomial RSV infections are associated with poorer clinical outcomes, including increased mortality, the need for mechanical

N2 - Despite significant medical advances since the advent of lung transplantation, improvements in long-term survival have been largely unrealized. Chronic lung allograft dysfunction, in particular obliterative bronchiolitis, is the primary limiting factor. The predominant etiology of obliterative bronchiolitis involves the recipients innate and adaptive immune response to the transplanted allograft. Current therapeutic strategies have failed to provide a definitive treatment paradigm to improve long-term outcomes. Inducing immune tolerance is an emerging therapeutic strategy that abrogates allograft rejection, avoids immunosuppression, and improves long-term graft function. The aim of this review is to discuss the key immunologic components of obliterative bronchiolitis, describe the state of establishing immune ...

Artificial butter flavoring may contain diacetyl, acetylpropionyl, or acetoin, three natural compounds in butter that contribute to its characteristic flavor. Because of this, manufacturers of margarines or similar oil-based products typically add diacetyl, acetylpropionyl and acetoin (along with beta carotene for the yellow color) to make the final product butter-flavored, because it would otherwise be relatively tasteless. Chronic industrial exposure to diacetyl fumes, such as in the microwave popcorn production industry, has been associated with bronchiolitis obliterans, a rare and life-threatening form of non-reversible obstructive lung disease in which the bronchioles (small airway branches) are compressed and narrowed by fibrosis (scar tissue) and/or inflammation.
