Beneficial effects of raxofelast (IRFI 016), a new hydrophilic vitamin E-like antioxidant, in carrageenan-induced pleurisy. (1/281)

1. Peroxynitrite is a strong oxidant that results from reaction between NO and superoxide. It has been recently proposed that peroxynitrite plays a pathogenetic role in inflammatory processes. Here we have investigated the therapeutic efficacy of raxofelast, a new hydrophilic vitamin E-like antioxidant agent, in rats subjected to carrageenan-induced pleurisy. 2. In vivo treatment with raxofelast (5, 10, 20 mg kg(-1) intraperitoneally 5 min before carrageenan) prevented in a dose dependent manner carrageenan-induced pleural exudation and polymorphonuclear migration in rats subjected to carrageenan-induced pleurisy. Lung myeloperoxidase (MPO) activity and malondialdehyde (MDA) levels, as well as histological organ injury were significantly reduced by raxofelast. 3. Immunohistochemical analysis for nitrotyrosine, a footprint of peroxynitrite, revealed a positive staining in lungs from carrageenan-treated rats. No positive nitrotyrosine staining was found in the lungs of the carrageenan-treated rats, which received raxofelast (20 mg kg 1) treatment. 4. Furthermore, in vivo raxofelast (5, 10, 20 mg kg(-1)) treatment significantly reduced peroxynitrite formation as measured by the oxidation of the fluorescent dihydrorhodamine 123, prevented the appearance of DNA damage, the decrease in mitochondrial respiration and partially restored the cellular level of NAD+ in ex vivo macrophages harvested from the pleural cavity of rats subjected to carrageenan-induced pleurisy. 5. In conclusion, our study demonstrates that raxofelast, a new hydrophilic vitamin E-like antioxidant agent, exerts multiple protective effects in carrageenan-induced acute inflammation.  (+info)

Bronchial carcinoma in patients with pre-existing unilateral lung disease. (2/281)

Forty-six cases of primary bronchogenic carcinoma occurring in patients with other unilateral pleuropulmonary diseases were studied. In 37 cases (80-4%) carcinoma developed in the previously healthy lung. All but one squamous-cell carcinoma and all of five undifferentiated small-cell carcinomas developed in the previously healthy lung while 7 of 15 adenocarcinomas were in the lung with impaired ventilation. It is suggested that the bronchial epithelium of the healthy lung is more exposed to exogenous carcinogens than that of the diseased, underventilated lung, resulting in a higher risk of development of squamous-cell and undifferentiated small-cell carcinoma.  (+info)

Effect of a novel non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (M-5011) on cytokine levels in rats with monosodium urate crystal- induced pleurisy. (3/281)

We evaluated the effects of a new non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), d-2-[4-(3-methyl-2-thienyl)phenyl]propionic acid (M-5011), and indomethacin on the production of arachidonate metabolites and pro-inflammatory cytokines in male Sprague-Dawley rats with monosodium urate crystal (MSU)-induced pleurisy. Levels of tumor necrosis factor (TNF), interleukin (IL)-1 and IL-6 in the pleural exudate were determined by biological assays, while prostaglandin E2 (PGE2), leukotriene B4 (LTB4) and cytokine-induced chemoattractant-1 (CINC-1) levels were quantified by enzyme immunoassays. Orally administered M-5011 (5 mg/kg) decreased the pleural exudate volume at 3 and 4 hr after MSU injection. Indomethacin (10 mg/kg) decreased the volume at 3-5 hr. These drugs reduced the number of leukocytes in the pleural cavity at 6 hr. Both NSAIDs also reduced the content of PGE2 in the exudate without affecting LTB4 levels. Increased productions of both IL-6 and CINC-1 in the exudate were reduced by pretreatment with M-5011 or indomethacin, and TNF levels in the exudate were increased by pretreatment of these drugs. Thus, M-5011 inhibits the production of both IL-6 and CINC-1 at lower doses than those of indomethacin, and the inhibitory effect of M-5011 on CINC-1, but not IL-6, may partly contribute to the inhibition of leukocyte infiltration in rats with MSU-induced pleurisy.  (+info)

Bilateral pleuritis caused by Legionella micdadei. (4/281)

A 58-year-old woman was hospitalized because of progressive respiratory distress. She had a history of myasthenia gravis and invasive thymoma. After thymectomy, she had been administered oral prednisolone and intrathoracic anti-cancer drugs postoperatively. Her chest radiograph revealed bilateral pleural effusions. Legionella micdadei (L. micdadei) was isolated from the pleural effusions, and she was diagnosed as pleuritis caused by L. micdadei. She died despite intensive therapy with mechanical ventilation, drainage tube in the chest and intravenous erythromycin. Although only two cases of Legionellosis caused by L. micdadei have been reported in Japan, clinicians should be aware of L. micdadei as one of the candidates for infection in immunosuppressed hosts.  (+info)

Suppressive effect of distinct bradykinin B2 receptor antagonist on allergen-evoked exudation and leukocyte infiltration in sensitized rats. (5/281)

1. Bradykinin is suggested to play a role in the pathophysiology of several acute and chronic diseases, including allergic disorders such as asthma. In the present study, we have investigated the importance of bradykinin in mediating allergic inflammation in rats. 2. To this end we have tested the effects of the B2 receptor antagonists Hoe 140, FR173657 or FR172357 on the pleural inflammatory response triggered by intrapleural (i.pl.) injection of allergen (ovalbumin, 12 microg cavity(-1)) in 14 day-actively sensitized Wistar rats. Analysis of the pleural fluid effluent revealed a sequence of mast cell-dependent inflammatory events, including early protein exudation and neutrophilia and late pleural eosinophil influx. 3. Local treatment with Hoe 140 (0.1 and 1 microg cavity(-1)), FR173657 (1 and 10 microg cavity(-1)) or FR172357 (1 and 10 microg cavity(-1)) inhibited dose-dependently allergen-induced mast cell activation with impairment of pleural plasma leakage, neutrophil accumulation and late eosinophil influx. 4. Moreover, the B2 receptor antagonists also dose-dependently inhibited the allergic like inflammatory pleurisy triggered by bradykinin (50 microg cavity(-1)), which is characterized by acute mast cell degranulation, protein leakage and pleural eosinophil infiltration. 5. Taken together, our findings provide substantial evidence to suggest that bradykinin acting on its B2 receptors play a critical role in mediating allergic mast cell-dependent inflammation in rats, and suggest that B2 receptor antagonists may be useful therapeutically to control allergic dysfunction.  (+info)

Bradykinin down-regulates LPS-induced eosinophil accumulation in the pleural cavity of mice through type 2-kinin receptor activation: a role for prostaglandins. (6/281)

1. The role of both exogenously administered and endogenously generated bradykinin (BK) on LPS-induced eosinophil accumulation in the mice pleural cavity was investigated by means of treatment with BK selective receptor agonists/antagonists and captopril. 2. Intrathoracic (i.t.) injection of LPS (250 ng cavity(-1)) induced eosinophil influx at 24 h as previously described (Bozza et al., 1993). Pretreatment with the B1 receptor antagonist des-Arg9-[leu-8]BK (0.025 and 0.25 nmol cavity(-1)) showed no effect on this phenomenon, whereas pretreatment with the B2 receptor antagonists, NPC 17731 (0.025 and 0.25 nmol cavity(-1)) or HOE 140 (2.5 nmol cavity(-1)), increased LPS-induced eosinophil influx. Accordingly, pretreatment with captopril at 10 mg kg(-1) i.p., inhibited eosinophil infiltration induced by LPS in the pleural cavity, suggesting that endogenous BK is down-regulating LPS-induced eosinophil accumulation. 3. BK administered at 15 and 25 nmol cavity(-1), i.t. or i.p. also inhibited LPS-induced eosinophil accumulation. BK alone had no effect on the basal number of leucocytes in the pleural or peritoneal cavity in doses up to 25 nmol cavity(-1). Nevertheless, when injected at doses of 50 and 100 nmol cavity(-1) BK induced leucocyte influx characterized by neutrophil and eosinophil accumulation at 24 h. 4. Similarly to what was observed with BK, a specific B2 receptor agonist, Tyr8BK, administered at 0.25 nmol cavity(-1) i.p., significantly inhibited the eosinophil influx induced by LPS. 5. The mechanism by which B2 receptor agonists inhibit LPS-induced eosinophil accumulation was investigated by pretreating the animals with indomethacin or a selective cyclooxygenase-2 inhibitor, NS-398. Pretreatment with either indomethacin or NS-398 had no effect on eosinophil influx induced by LPS alone, but those drugs were able to restore the LPS-induced eosinophil influx in Tyr8BK (0.25 nmol cavity(-1)) injected mice. 6. In conclusion, endogenously generated bradykinin seems to modulate, through activation of B2 receptors, eosinphil accumulation induced by LPS via a mechanism dependent on prostanoid synthesis.  (+info)

Role of IL-6 in the pleurisy and lung injury caused by carrageenan. (7/281)

In the present study we used IL-6 knockout mice (IL-6KO) to evaluate the role of IL-6 in the inflammatory response caused by injection of carrageenan into the pleural space. Compared with carrageenan-treated IL-6 wild-type (IL-6WT) mice, carrageenan-treated IL-6KO mice exhibited a reduced degree of pleural exudation and polymorphonuclear cell migration. Lung myeloperoxidase activity and lipid peroxidation were significantly reduced in IL-6KO mice compared with those in IL-6WT mice treated with carrageenan. Immunohistochemical analysis for nitrotyrosine and poly(A)DP-ribose polymerase revealed a positive staining in lungs from carrageenan-treated IL-6WT mice. No positive staining for nitrotyrosine or PARS was found in the lungs of the carrageenan-treated IL-6KO mice. Staining of lung tissue sections obtained from carrageenan-treated IL-6WT mice with an anti-cyclo-oxygenase-2 Ab showed a diffuse staining of the inflamed tissue. Furthermore, expression of inducible nitric oxide synthase was found mainly in the macrophages of the inflamed lungs from carrageenan-treated IL-6WT mice. The intensity and degree of the staining for cyclo-oxygenase-2 and inducible nitric oxide synthase were markedly reduced in tissue sections obtained from carrageenan-treated IL-6KO mice. Most notably, the degree of lung injury caused by carrageenan was also reduced in IL-6KO mice. Treatment of IL-6WT mice with anti-IL-6 (5 microg/day/mouse at 24 and 1 h before carrageenan treatment) also significantly attenuated all the above indicators of lung inflammation. Taken together, our results clearly demonstrate that IL-6KO mice are more resistant to the acute inflammation of the lung caused by carrageenan injection into the pleural space than the corresponding WT mice.  (+info)

The protective role of endogenous melatonin in carrageenan-induced pleurisy in the rat. (8/281)

Peroxynitrite, a potent cytotoxic oxidant formed by the reaction of nitric oxide (NO) with the superoxide anion, was recently proposed to play a major pathogenic role in the inflammatory process. Here we have investigated the effects of endogenous melatonin, a known scavenger of peroxynitrite, in rats subjected to carrageenan-induced pleurisy. Endogenous melatonin was depleted in rats maintained on 24 h light cycle for 1 wk. In vivo depletion of endogenous melatonin enhanced the carrageenan-induced degree of pleural exudation and polymorphonuclear leukocyte migration in rats subjected to carrageenan-induced pleurisy. Lung myeloperoxidase activity and lipid peroxidation were significantly increased in melatonin-deprived rats. However, the inducible NO synthase in lung samples was unaffected by melatonin depletion. Immunohistochemical analysis for nitrotyrosine revealed a positive staining in lungs from carrageenan-treated rats that was markedly enhanced in melatonin-deprived rats. Furthermore, melatonin depletion significantly increased peroxynitrite formation as measured by the oxidation of the fluorescent dye dihydrorhodamine 123, enhanced DNA damage and the decrease in mitochondrial respiration and reduced the cellular levels of NAD+ in macrophages harvested from the pleural cavity of rats subjected to carrageenan-induced pleurisy. In vivo treatment with exogenous melatonin (15 mg/kg intraperitoneal) significantly reversed the effects of melatonin depletion. Thus, endogenous melatonin plays an important protective role against carrageenan-induced local inflammation.  (+info)

The lungs are covered with a two protective membranes called the pleura. The pleura are located between the lungs and other parts of the thorax such as the ribs, heart, and the diaphragm. The two layers function as a protective covering for the lungs well as to keep other parts of the body from disturbing them. An inflammation of these layers will result to a condition known as pleurisy. There are several factors that can cause the condition. If it is caused by a virus, it is called viral pleurisy.. Viral pleurisy is a pleuritis which is secondary to a viral infection. The common types of viruses that can cause pleurisy are causative agents of influenza and mumps, respiratory syncytial virus, adenovirus, and Epstain-Barr virus among others. Symptoms can often include chest pain that is most pronounced during deep breathing, coughing, sneezing, or sudden movement. The stabbing, gnawing chest pain is often felt on one side of the chest, but can radiate towards the sides or the shoulders and arms. ...

Pleurisy, an inflammation of the lining around the lungs, is associated with sharp chest pain upon breathing in. Cough, chest tenderness, and shortness of breath are other symptoms associated with pleurisy. Pleurisy pain can be managed with pain medication and by external splinting of the chest wall.
For pleurisy and associated pleuritic chest pain, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are frequently prescribed as initial therapy to treat inflammation of the pleural space. NSAIDs are ideal because they do not cause a reduction in respiratory drive or affect the cough reflex. If NSAIDs are ineffective, contraindicated, or not tolerated, opioid analgesics may be used with caution.1,2 While it is assumed that a class effect occurs when NSAIDs are used, human studies on the use of NSAIDs to treat pleuritic chest pain have been limited to indomethacin.1 The recommended dosage of indomethacin for pleuritic chest pain is 50 to 100 mg orally up to three times daily with food or milk.1,10. In 1984, Klein evaluated the use of indomethacin in 17 patients with pleurisy. Patients evaluated their pain relief every 24 hours, rating it as excellent, good, fair, or poor. Eleven patients (65%) obtained good-to-excellent pain relief within 24 hours. Although patients had the option of selecting other ...

Tuberculosis (TB) remains a global health problem even though it has nearly been eradicated in some developed countries. Because of variable manifestations and the difficulty in collecting clinical samples, extra-pulmonary TB is usually difficult to early diagnose. Tuberculous pleurisy (TP) is one of the most common extra-pulmonary infection and accounts for approximately 5% of all forms of TB. The gold standard for diagnosing TP is mycobacterial culture of pleural effusion (PE), pleura tissue, which requires weeks to yield. The treatment could thus be delayed, resulting in an increased mortality rate. In addition, mycobacterial culture is not so sensitive for PE and with positivity in less than two thirds of cases with TB pleurisy.. For diagnosing TP, PE biomarkers are required to be investigated in addition to traditional PE cell counting and biochemistry. In particularly, inflammation-associated cytokines and apoptosis-associated markers may be important because the two pathways involve in TB ...

Pleurisy, or pleuritis, is the inflammation of the pleura, the double-layered, moist membrane lining the rib cage and surrounding the lungs, sometimes making breathing to be extremely painful. This is the forum for discussing anything related to this health condition
The roles of prostaglandins (PGs) as mediators of inflammation have been extensively studied, and production of PGI2 and PGE2 at inflammatory sites has been reported. However, it has not yet been clarified which type of PG receptors has a major role in inflammatory exudation. To examine in vivo role of PG receptors in inflammatory exudation, we induced pleurisy in PG receptors (IP, EP1, EP2, EP3, or EP4) knockout mice by intrapleural injection of carrageenin. Pleural exudate accumulation in wild-type (WT) mice at 1 to 5 h, but not at 24 h, was significantly attenuated by the pretreatment with indomethacin, indicating that PGs are responsible for exudate formation at the early phase of pleurisy. Pleural exudation at 1 to 5 h in IP, EP2, or EP3 knockout mice, but not in EP1 and EP4 knockout, was significantly reduced compared with in WT mice. In the exudates, 6-keto-PGF1α and PGE2 were detected as the major PGs, each with its peak concentration at 3 h. In addition, involvement of bradykinin in ...

We evaluated the effects of a new non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), ,I,d,/I,-2-[4-(3-methyl-2-thienyl)phenyl]propionic acid (M-5011), and indomethacin on the production of arachidonate metabolites and pro-inflammatory cytokines in male Sprague-Dawly rats with monosodium urate crystal (MSU)-induced pleurisy. Levels of tumor necrosis factor (TNF), interleukin (IL)-1 and IL-6 in the pleural exudate were determined by biological assays, while prostaglandin E,SUB,2,/SUB, (PGE,SUB,2,/SUB,), leukotriene B,SUB,4,/SUB, (LTB,SUB,4,/SUB,) and cytokine-induced chemoattractant-1 (CINC-1) levels were quantified by enzyme immunoassays. Orally administered M-5011 (5 mg/kg) decreased the pleural exudate volume at 3 and 4 hr after MSU injection. Indomethacin (10 mg/kg) decreased the volume at 3 - 5 hr. These drugs reduced the number of leukocytes in the pleural cavity at 6 hr. Both NSAIDs also reduced the content of PGE,SUB,2,/SUB, in the exudate without affecting LTB,SUB,4,/SUB, levels. Increased ...

Increased levels of interleukin-6 (IL-6) and IL-8 are found in various immunologically mediated inflammatory disorders. Concentrations of IL-6, IL-8 and the soluble form of the IL-6 receptor (sIL-6R) were determined in serum and effusion fluid of 25 patients with tuberculous pleurisy utilizing enzyme linked immunosorbent assays (EIA). Serum IL-6 levels were only slightly increased in patients with tuberculous pleurisy in comparison to controls (11.1 ± 2.1 vs 7.3 ± 1.0 pg ml-1). IL-8 could not be detected in the serum of tuberculosis patients, but it was detected in the serum of healthy controls (8.0 ± 1.5 pg ml-1). In comparison to serum, IL-6 and IL-8 were found in high concentrations in pleural effusions (IL-6: 932 ± 70 vs 11.1 ± 2.1 pg ml-1, P < 0.0001; IL-8: 450 ± 85 vs 0 ± 0 pg ml-1). In contrast, sIL-6R concentrations were much higher in serum compared to pleural effusion levels [30,477 ± 1905 vs 9881 ± 1177 pg ml-1, P < 0.0001 (mean ± SEM)]. The authors conclude that elevated ...
After 3 demos in the first half of the 1990s and a split with German melodic Death Metal combo Asgaia in 1997, Pleurisy from The Netherlands released their debut album Experience the Sacrilege in 1999. An album filled with Death/Thrash Metal and melodic riffs. Not very uncommon in those days as pure Old School Death Metal wasnt the style that was ruling the world at that moment. Actually, there are quite some similarities with the good old Gothenburg scene when it comes to song arrangements. Just listen to a track like Witchcraft, which could be an A Canorous Quintet or In Thy Dreams track, only a bit stripped down. Pleurisy doesnt go all the way, as it combines different styles, yet keeps riffs and melody as the core of their business. I have to admit I almost completely have forgotten this band from my home country, thanks towards VIC Records for clearing up my memory. It was a fun ride. (Ricardo). ...

The effect of four macrolide antibiotics (roxithromycin, clarithromycin, erythromycin, and azithromycin) on the generation of some mediators and cytokines involved in the inflammatory process has been studied both in vivo and in vitro. Rat carrageenin pleurisy was used as a model of acute inflammation, and the macrolides were administered (10, 20, and 40 mg/kg p.o.) 1 h before the carrageenin challenge. Exudate volume and leukocyte accumulation were both dose-dependently reduced by roxithromycin, clarithromycin and erythromycin in either normal or adrenalectomized animals. Furthermore, in normal rats, prostaglandin (PG)E2, nitrate plus nitrite, and tumor necrosis factor-α levels in pleural exudate were significantly reduced by these macrolides. Roxithromycin appeared more effective than erythromycin and clarithromycin, whereas azithromycin only slightly affected the inflammatory reaction. None of the macrolides were able to modify leukotriene B4 exudate levels. In vitro experiments have shown ...

Tumor-draining lymph nodes (TDLNs) enlarge and remodel in many human cancer patients and murine tumor models, featuring extensive lymphocyte accumulation, lymphatic sinus growth (lymphangiogenesis), and increased lymph flow. B cells can drive these lymphatic alterations, however the cellular and molecular mechanisms that direct lymphocyte accumulation in TDLNs are unknown. This study investigated whether lymphocyte accumulation in TDLNs is due to increased entry via high endothelial venules. The popliteal lymph node of C57Bl/6 mice bearing unilateral footpad B16-F10 melanoma tumors exhibits an 8-fold increase in B cells and 3-fold increase in T cells. Comparative measurements of labeled-lymphocyte entry into TDLNs versus the contralateral non-tumor draining lymph nodes by flow cytometry only partially explained TDLN hypertrophy. Further investigation of TDLN lymphocyte exit, proliferation, and apoptosis identified distinct mechanisms regulating B and T cell trafficking through TDLNs in response ...
We assessed the utility of ultrasound to guide the selection of closed pleural biopsy technique and site and to assess the respective contributions of repeat thoracentesis and closed pleural biopsy in 100 consecutive patients with undiagnosed pleural exudates. Thoracentesis was more likely to be diagnostic in TB than malignancy (77.8% vs 31.0%, p,0.001). The addition of ultrasound-guided biopsy increased the combined yield for all diagnoses from 48.0% to 90.0% (p,0.001), for malignancy from 31.0% to 89.7% (p,0.001) and for TB from 77.8% to 88.9% (p=0.688). Our findings suggest that this minimally invasive approach has a high diagnostic yield.. ...

BACKGROUND: The intensity of the [F]fluorodeoxyglucose (F-FDG) uptake is an independent prognostic indicator in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). We evaluate the relationship between the metabolic activity of the primary and the pleurisy in T4 NSCLC. METHODS: 25 patients (16 males, nine females, mean age 63 years, performance status 1) with pathology-proven, T4 NSCLC and malignant pleurisy were included. All were treated by a platinum salt-based chemotherapy regimen. Positron emission tomography (F-FDG-PET) was performed before treatment, according to a routine procedure. Regions of interest were placed over the primary and the pleural effusion on the transaxial slice showing the highest activity. The maximum pixel standard ...
Regional and occupational pneumonia: For example, exposure to chemicals or cattle can cause this condition. What is Bronchitis? Bronchitis is a disorder characterized by inflammation of the bronchi or air passages that transport air from the trachea to the lungs. Inflammation of the bronchi leads to the accumulation of mucus, which causes the blocking of the bronchial cells. The body then takes refuge in the cough mechanism to get rid of the accumulated mucus. Unfortunately, cough, while it gets rid of excess mucus, also makes the air passages more susceptible to infection. Moreover, if the infection continues, the tissues of the bronchi might get damaged ...
I have been to several doctors and had several different diagnosis with different medications and still seem to have issues. I have always had asthma which has been good/bad depending on where I have lived and what time of year it is (seasonal allergies). Recently I was diagnosed with an upper respiratory infection. After being sick two weeks later, I went to urgent care who said I have a viral infection and take cough medicine. Another two weeks went by and I decided to get another opinion because I was so ill I could not get out of bed. I was then diagnosed with Swine Flu. After being sick for a month the doctor ordered a chest x-ray to make sure I did not have pnemonia which I did not. Incidently, the radiologist found scattered granulomas across my lungs. I am still sick and my boss called ER while I was working last week because of severe chest pain I was having. The hospital ran tests and said I have pleurisy. This is the second year in a row that I have been diagnosed with pleurisy after ...

Spontaneous pneumothorax is defined by the presence of air in the pleural cavity without history of trauma. This is a significant clinical problem. COPD is a common cause of pneumothorax. The risk of recurrence of spontaneous pneumothorax secondary to COPD is high and various studies quote rates 20-60%.. Methods: retrospective cohort study of all patients COPD admitted with pneumothorax to the pulmonary department between January 2004 and September 2011.. The aim: to assess the frequency of pneumothorax in the COPD and describe its clinical profile and scalable.. Results: in a study period of 6 years, 248 cases with a diagnosis of pneumothorax were reviewed, the rate of pneumothorax secondary to COPD was 67 % (80 patients COPD developed 167 pneumothorax).Our series is composed mainly of men, mean age 59± 8 years.

Widespread use of CT pulmonary angiography (CTPA) in clinical practice has resulted in an increase in reported incidence of pulmonary embolism (PE). Acute thrombotic PE remains an important clinical entity with potentially fatal outcome. Clinical diagnosis is often challenging due to the variable and non-specific nature of presenting symptoms which overlap between those with and without PE. Dyspnoea (onset from seconds to minutes) is the most common symptom (,70%) followed by pleuritic chest pains (,40%).(1) Tachypnoea is the most common sign (,50%) while tachycardia is only present in ~25% patients. Clinical signs of DVT may be present in around 50% of patients. More importantly, PE can be truly asymptomatic. For example, in patients with a documented DVT as many as 32% were found to have a silent PE. Acute PE can broadly be divided into massive and submassive PE. Those with a submassive PE can be further risk stratified by appropriate use of imaging tools (Echocardiography and CTPA) and ...

Inflammation of the intestine is known as crohns disease.. This disease flares up from time to time and this will affect any part of the gastrointestinal track. Symptoms vary, depending on the part of the gut affected and the severity of the condition. Common symptoms include bloody diarrhea, abdominal pain and feeling unwell.. Although pain from the pancreas or kidneys tends to occur in the back, it can also occur in the sides or in the abdomen. Similarly pain from heart attacks and lung problems such as pneumonia pleurisy (inflammation of the lining around the lungs) typically occurs in the chest but, may also be felt in the upper abdomen. There is no specific method of preventing pain in the upper abdomen. However, once the cause of the pain is identified, you can manage your problem. There are various medications and therapies which can treat pain in the upper abdomen depending on the cause. For example, if a person has kidney stones, a doctor may prescribe narcotic pain medications, ...
Pneumonia can be produced in mice, which have not been previously prepared, by intranasal inoculation of broth cultures of certain strains of pneumococci.. Lesions which are quantitatively different can be produced in different breeds of mice by inoculation of the same type of pneumococcus. Similar inoculation of different types of pneumococci into one breed of mice results in lesions which are qualitatively different.. In general, these lesions are as follows: a diffuse pneumonia and an acute glomerular nephritis in unselected mice receiving Type I strains; a confluent pneumonia and a tubular nephritis in the case of Type II strains; and as result of Type III strains, an interstitial pneumonia with extensive gelatinous pleurisy, together with necrosis and abscess formation in the spleen and cervical lymph nodes. Resistant strains of mice with Type III pneumococci show slight changes in the lungs, but marked lesions in the spleen and cervical nodes, while susceptible mice with the same type of ...
A Fatal Heart Attack Can Occur With Normal Coronary Arteries. by Bill Sardi. Recently by Bill Sardi: FDIC Walks a Tightrope. Patricia at 58 years of age is in relatively good health but began to experience intermittent pain on the left side of her chest, near her shoulder. The pain was dull and stabbing and would last for up to a minute or more. She was worried. So she was off to a trip to the hospital emergency room. Doctors there became concerned because of her age and symptoms. Patricia was kept in the emergency room for 20 hours for extensive monitoring. Chest x-rays were negative for pneumonia or pleurisy. An electrocardiogram was normal. Blood samples were drawn every hour or two to check for elevated enzyme levels that would indicate a heart attack had taken place. A cardiologist was summoned and an echo cardiogram performed. Everything was normal, including a treadmill test. But the chest pain continued. She returned to her bookkeeping desk job on Monday at the office of James Privitera ...
I am the mother of Kyle Baca, who at age 14 was the victim of a massive bilateral pulmonary embolism (PE) on the morning of October 30, 2010. I knew Kyle was sick, but I thought it was an upper respiratory infection at the time. He played football that season for his high school freshman team, ran track that summer, and participated in the Junior Olympic Regionals in Colorado. Kyle was diagnosed with pneumonia/pleurisy the previous month by his primary care physician, who put him on steroids and antibiotics for pneumonia. He got better, but still noticed that there were moments when he couldnt catch his breath. We both thought his breathlessness was due to getting over pneumonia and/or tough football practices.. He also noticed that his shins hurt during track season. I thought his leg pain was because he was running more and changing his brand of track shoes many times. The possibility of a deep vein thrombosis (DVT) never crossed my mind. Kyle woke up on Oct 30th at 8:30 am and said he ...

Chernenko started smoking at the age of nine,[9] and he was always known to be a heavy smoker as an adult.[10] Long before his election as general secretary, he had developed emphysema and right-sided heart failure. In 1983 he had been absent from his duties for three months due to bronchitis, pleurisy and pneumonia. Historian John Lewis Gaddis describes him as an enfeebled geriatric so zombie-like as to be beyond assessing intelligence reports, alarming or not when he succeeded Andropov in 1984.[11]. In early 1984, Chernenko was hospitalised for over a month but kept working by sending the Politburo notes and letters. During the summer, his doctors sent him to Kislovodsk for the mineral spas, but on the day of his arrival at the resort Chernenkos health deteriorated, and he contracted pneumonia. Chernenko did not return to the Kremlin until later in 1984. He awarded Orders to cosmonauts and writers in his office, but was unable to walk through the corridors of his office and was driven in a ...
My Daughter in Law is eight months pregnant and is unfortunately in hospital with pneumonia and pleurisy. The treatment she is getting is absolutely appalling and it is purely down to staff shortages. She should be getting pain killers every 4 hours, she is lucky if she gets them every six hours, which means she is often left in severe pain. The necessary antibiotics are given when the staff gave time, not when prescribed. Nobody has even queried the fact that she has not eaten for days, in fact despite the fact that she is very dry and has a sore throat from constant coughing, she is being given toast or sandwiches. So now we are taking her in food that she can eat ...
