The physiologic definition of BPD standardized the definition of BPD among centers and led to a reduction in the overall rate of BPD from 35% to 25%. Variation in rates of BPD among centers was reduced modestly, but significant variation among centers remained even when using the physiologic definition.. The clinical definition was assigned at 36 weeks and 0 days postmenstrual age, whereas the physiologic definition was assigned between 35 and 37 weeks postmenstrual age. The wider window of time allowed infants who were steadily weaning from oxygen to reach room air in the window and also ensured that infants were not studied during an acute deterioration. This wider window resulted in more infants reaching room air and thus being assigned the outcome no BPD. Thus, the number assigned the clinical definition of BPD is greater than the sum of those on positive pressure support, oxygen, and failed physiologic challenge, as shown in Fig 1. The difference is clinically relevant, because the ...
Infants with severe bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) have high risks of late morbidities and mortality, but the best ways to manage these vulnerable patients are still debated. In fact, its not always clear how to define severe BPD.. The Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia Collaborative, a group of institutions led by Nationwide Childrens Hospital, has recently published a review to guide neonatologists - and to help the multidisciplinary teams that are crucial for a patients ongoing care.. One of the focuses of neonatology has been on the prevention of BPD, says Leif Nelin, MD, chief of the Division of Neonatology at Nationwide Childrens and senior author of The Journal of Pediatrics review. Thats very important. When the disease occurs, however, patients are often taken care of as if they have an acute disease, when they actually have a chronic one. And once the neonatal intensive care unit phase is over, care can ultimately fall to a pulmonologist, a critical care specialist, a cardiologist ...

Uncertainly prevails with regard to the use of inhalation or instillation steroids to prevent bronchopulmonary dysplasia in preterm infants. The meta-analysis with sequential analysis was designed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of airway administration (inhalation or instillation) of corticosteroids for preventing bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) in premature infants. We searched MEDLINE, EMBASE, CINAHL, and Cochrane CENTRAL from their inceptions to February 2017. All published randomized controlled trials (RCTs) evaluating the effect of airway administration of corticosteroids (AACs) vs placebo or systemic corticosteroid in prematurity were included. All meta-analyses were performed using Review Manager 5.3. Twenty five RCTs retrieved (n = 3249) were eligible for further analysis. Meta-analysis and trial sequential analysis corrected the 95% confidence intervals estimated a lower risk of the primary outcome of BPD (relative risk 0.71, adjusted 95% confidence interval 0.57-0.87) and death or BPD

A number of definitions of bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD), or chronic lung disease, have been used. A June 2000 National Institute of Child Health and Human Development/National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute Workshop proposed a severity-based definition of BPD for infants ,32 weeks gestational age (GA). Mild BPD was defined as a need for supplemental oxygen (O2) for , or =28 days but not at 36 weeks postmenstrual age (PMA) or discharge, moderate BPD as O2 for , or =28 days plus treatment with ,30% O2 at 36 weeks PMA, and severe BPD as O2 for , or =28 days plus , or =30% O2 and/or positive pressure at 36 weeks PMA. The objective of this study was to determine the predictive validity of the severity-based, consensus definition of BPD. Data from 4866 infants (birth weight , or =1000 g, GA ,32 weeks, alive at 36 weeks PMA) who were entered into the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development Neonatal Research Network Very Low Birth weight (VLBW) Infant Registry between January ...
HYPOTHESIS:. Early prophylactic inhalation of Budesonide reduces the absolute risk of developing bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) or death in preterm infants born ,28 weeks gestational age (GA) by 10%.. PRIMARY OBJECTIVE:. To determine whether inhalation of Budesonide within 12 hours of life improves survival without BPD at 36 weeks GA in infants born between 23 and 27 weeks GA.. SECONDARY OBJECTIVES:. To determine whether prophylactic inhalation of Budesonide affects neurodevelopment at a corrected age of 18-22 months in preterm infants; to determine whether inhalation of corticosteroids is associated with adverse treatment effects, alters mortality at 36 weeks GA, BPD incidence at 36 weeks GA, and the duration of positive pressure respiratory support or supplemental oxygen.. RATIONALE:. Pre- and postnatal exposure of the developing lung to inflammation is central to the development of BPD and the pulmonary inflammatory response in preterms at risk of developing BPD is established very early in ...
Bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) is the most common chronic lung disease (CLD) in premature infants. This study was designed to elucidate the regulation of miRNA-547-3p on adrenomedullin (ADM) during the pathogenesis of BPD. We used Agilent Human 4x44K Gene Expression Microarrays v2 and miRCURY LNA™ microRNA Array to identify the differently expressed miRNA and its potential target genes, and certified them again by luciferase reporter gene analysis. We only retained target genes that met the following two conditions: first, coexisting in two databases, and second, expressing differences, and then identifying target genes by luciferase reporter gene analysis. Thus, we selected miRNA-574-3p and its target gene ADM for further research. We used real-time q-PCR to determine the expression of miRNA-574-3p and its target gene ADM in premature infants with BPD. We used microarray expression to analyze BPD samples and non-BPD samples and found that there were 516 differently expressed probes between ...
Aims: The aim of this study was to determine the incidence of neonatal morbidity in extremely preterm infants and to identify associated risk factors. Methods: Population based study of infants born before 27 gestational weeks and admitted for neonatal intensive care in Sweden during 2004-2007. Results: Of 638 admitted infants, 141 died. Among these, life support was withdrawn in 55 infants because of anticipation of poor long-term outcome. Of 497 surviving infants, 10% developed severe intraventricular haemorrhage (IVH), 5.7% cystic periventricular leucomalacia (cPVL), 41% septicaemia and 5.8% necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC); 61% had patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) and 34% developed retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) stage andgt;= 3. Eighty-five per cent needed mechanical ventilation and 25% developed severe bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD). Forty-seven per cent survived to one year of age without any severe IVH, cPVL, severe ROP, severe BPD or NEC. Tocolysis increased and prolonged mechanical ...
OBJECTIVE. This study compared bottle-feeding behaviors in preterm infants with and without bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) during the initial hospitalization.. METHOD. Individual sucking characteristics and feeding transitional rates were compared in 41 preterm infants (22 boys, 19 girls) with BPD and 99 infants (44 boys, 55 girls) without BPD. Observations of the first bottle feeding and observations of the last feeding before discharge were obtained from medical records of all infants retrospectively.. RESULTS. On discharge, infants with BPD, unlike those without BPD, continued to have an immature sucking pattern and required longer hospital stays to attain full oral feeding (p , .001). No differences were found between the BPD and non-BPD groups in time needed for feeding and use of oral support.. CONCLUSION. These results suggest that feeding transitional rate, rather than sucking pattern, may be a better discharge indicator for infants with BPD. ...
Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia and Perinatal Characteristics Predict 1-Year Respiratory Outcomes in Newborns Born at Extremely Low Gestational Age: A Prospective Cohort Study.
Studying neonatal Chronic Lung Disease in the preterm infant, also known as Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia, has led to pathophysiologic concepts which enable a more profound understanding of the disease and generate treatment strategies allowing for the improvement of structural and functional pulmonary outcome. Here, both clinical studies as well as animal models have cross-fertilized each other, translating the definition of clinical needs and the identification of important variables from bench to bedside and back. Elaborate animal models have been designed and refined following different aims reaching from the understanding of relevant pathways as well as the investigation of clinically meaningful treatment strategies. By the use of large study cohorts, significant relationships between risk factors and their confounders could be identified, impacting both research aims and clinical routine. First, following current topics in the field the research topic will enrich the knowledge and
Bronchopulmonary dysplasia is a chronic lung disease of premature neonates characterized by arrested pulmonary alveolar development. There is increasing evidence that microRNAs (miRNAs) regulate translation of messenger RNAs (mRNAs) during lung organogenesis. The potential role of miRNAs in the pathogenesis of BPD is unclear. Following exposure of neonatal mice to 80% O2 or room air (RA) for either 14 or 29 days, lungs of hyperoxic mice displayed histological changes consistent with BPD. Comprehensive miRNA and mRNA profiling was performed using lung tissue from both O2 and RA treated mice, identifying a number of dynamically regulated miRNAs and associated mRNA target genes. Gene ontology enrichment and pathway analysis revealed that hyperoxia modulated genes involved in a variety of lung developmental processes, including cell cycle, cell adhesion, mobility and taxis, inflammation, and angiogenesis. MiR-29 was prominently increased in the lungs of hyperoxic mice, and several predicted mRNA targets of
Bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD), also known as chronic lung disease (CLD), is one of the most challenging complications in premature infants. The incidence of BPD has been increasing over the past two decades in parallel with an improvement in the survival of this population. Furthermore, the clinical characteristics and the natural history of infants affected by BPD have changed considerably, and newer definitions to clarify the term BPD have also evolved since its first description more than four decades ago. Several drug therapies have also evolved, either to manage these infants respiratory distress syndrome with an aim to prevent BPD or to manage the established condition. Although there is good evidence to support the routine use of some therapies, many other therapies currently used in relation to BPD remain individual- or institution-specific, depending on beliefs and myths that we have adopted. In this article, we discuss the importance of defining BPD more objectively and the support--or

Babies who are born prematurely or who experience respiratory problems shortly after birth are at risk for bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD), sometimes called chronic lung disease.
Neonatal Chronic Lung Disease, i.e. Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia (BPD) is characterized by impaired pulmonary development. Triggered by different risk factors including infections, hyperoxia and mechanical ventilation of the immature lung, remodeling of the extracellular matrix, apoptosis as well as altered growth factor signaling characterize the disease. The immediate consequences have been studied in different animal models supported by in vitro approaches leading to the successful application of these findings to the clinical setting in the past. Nonetheless, existing information about long-term consequences of the identified early and most likely sustained changes to the developing lung is limited. Interesting results point towards a tremendous impact on the pulmonary repair capacity as well as aging related processes in the adult lung.

Bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) is a major complication of preterm birth and has serious adverse long-term health consequences. The etiology of BPD is complex, multifactorial, and incompletely understood. Contributing factors include ventilator-induced lung injury, exposure to toxic oxygen levels, and infection. Several preventive and therapeutic strategies have been developed with variable success. These include lung protective ventilator strategies and pharmacological and nutritional interventions. These strategies target different components and stages of the disease process and they are commonly used in combination. The purpose of this review is to discuss the evidence for current pharmacological interventions and identify future therapeutic modalities that appear promising in the prevention and management of BPD. Continued improved understanding of BPD pathogenesis leads to opportunities for newer preventive approaches. These will need to be evaluated in the setting of current clinical ...

BACKGROUND The long-term effects on neurodevelopment of the use of inhaled glucocorticoids in extremely preterm infants for the prevention or treatment of bronchopulmonary dysplasia are uncertain. METHODS We randomly assigned 863 infants (gestational age, 23 weeks 0 days to 27 weeks 6 days) to receive early (within 24 hours after birth) inhaled budesonide or placebo. The prespecified secondary long-term outcome was neurodevelopmental disability among survivors, defined as a composite of cerebral palsy, cognitive delay (a Mental Development Index score of ,85 [1 SD below the mean of 100] on the Bayley Scales of Infant Development, Second Edition, with higher scores on the scale indicating better performance), deafness, or blindness at a corrected age of 18 to 22 months. RESULTS Adequate data on the prespecified composite long-term outcome were available for 629 infants. Of these infants, 148 (48.1%) of 308 infants assigned to budesonide had neurodevelopmental disability, as compared with 165 ...
There is animal evidence that inhaled nitric oxide (NO) reduces lung inflammation, improves surfactant function, attenuates hyperoxic lung injury, and promotes lung growth. It is hoped, therefore, that it might prevent bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD). Trials in preterm infants with respiratory failure have, however, given inconclusive results. Now two US multicentre trials have provided some support for treatment with inhaled NO.. In a 21-centre trial ...

Objective: Bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) is a severe common complication of preterm birth with considerable short and long-term consequences. As more evidence is emerging that dysregulation of angiogenesis is implicated in the pathogenesis of preeclampsia as well as in fetal lung development, we assessed if preeclampsia is associated with development of BPD in very preterm neonates. Study design: A retrospective cohort study of 308 infants born between 24+0 and 31+6 weeks of gestation in 2011 and 2012. We performed association analysis with univariable and multivariable logistic regression, adjusting for confounders. Models were additionally adjusted for intermediates, to show how an association can be disguised by over adjusting. Main outcome measure: BPD was diagnosed at 36+0 weeks postmenstrual age and defined as the need for oxygen (FiO2 , 0.21) for at least 12 h per day, for more than 28 days before or at 36+0 weeks postmenstrual age, and classified as mild, moderate or severe.

Understanding the role of susceptibility genes for risk of BPD and ROP may lead to immediate identification of populations who require personalized medical care, and to the assessment of innovative prophylactic and therapeutic interventions in the future. Our purpose is to establish in our hospital network a prospective cohort of triads composed of premature newborns with a birth weight less than or equal to 1250 g and their parents, to examine the role of candidate susceptibility genes in the development of BPD and ROP. Our hypothesis is that the presence of single-nucleotide polymorphisms in candidate genes is associated with differential susceptibility to BPD and ROP. As an initial model, a loss-of-function substitution at position -617 of the NRF2 promoter region is hypothesized to be associated with a greater risk of severe BPD and prethreshold ROP in premature infants with a birth weight less than or equal to 1250 g ...

BPD is caused by damage to the delicate tissue of the lungs. This damage is most often occurs in infants who have required extended treatment with supplemental oxygen or breathing assistance with a machine (mechanical ventilation) such as infants who are born prematurely and have acute respiratory distress syndrome.. When infants receive mechanical ventilation, a tube is inserted through the windpipe and the machine pushes air into the lungs, which are often underdeveloped in premature infants. In some cases, the levels of oxygen required for an affected infant to survive are higher than normally would be found in the air we breathe. Over time, the constant pressure from the ventilator and the excess oxygen levels can damage the delicate tissues of an infants lungs causing inflammation and scarring.. Although many cases of BPD are associated with mechanical ventilation or excess oxygen levels, BPD can arise from other conditions that affect the development of the lungs such as infection that ...
A major finding from our study is that overall lung function of VLBW survivors without BPD is within the reference range at 18 years old, although there are some reductions in variables reflecting flow compared with NBW controls. However, VLBW survivors with BPD have substantial reductions in variables reflecting obstructive airways disease, and there are more with clinically important reductions in airflow than in VLBW subjects without BPD. Moreover, there has been a significantly greater reduction in the FEV1/FVC ratio between early childhood and late adolescence in our BPD subjects.. There are various definitions of BPD. We have followed the original definition of Northway et al,10 partly so we could compare the lung function in early adulthood of VLBW BPD survivors with their early report.3 In their study, subjects were assessed at a similar mean age (18.3 [SD 2.7] years) to our study. However, the subjects in their study with BPD were much heavier (mean birth weight: 1894 g) and more mature ...
A chronic lung disease developed after OXYGEN INHALATION THERAPY or mechanical ventilation (VENTILATION, MECHANICAL) usually occurring in certain premature infants (INFANT, PREMATURE) or newborn infants with respiratory distress syndrome (RESPIRATORY DISTRESS SYNDROME, NEWBORN). Histologically, it is characterized by the unusual abnormalities of the bronchioles, such as METAPLASIA, decrease in alveolar number, and formation of CYSTS ...
Inflammation is the primary pathological process that precedes the development of BPD. Increased tracheal concentrations of inflammatory cytokines have been reported in infants who develop this disease [3-8]. Interleukin-4 and IL-13 have been shown to modulate lung inflammation in animal models and thus the presence or absence of these cytokines in the lung may be important determinants in the pathogenesis of BPD [16, 28].. Interleukin-4 is a pleiotropic cytokine produced predominately by T-lymphocytes and alveolar macrophages [10, 29]. Interleukin-4 stimulates production of some cytokines and growth factors while inhibiting others [11-17, 30]. Although IL-4 may be inhibitory to some aspects of lung inflammation, the presence of IL-4 may be detrimental by inducing proliferation of, and collagen production by, subsets of lung fibroblasts [31, 32]. Further, IL-4 is a central mediator in the development of asthma [20]. We detected very low concentrations of IL-4 in only one fifth of the tracheal ...

Introduction: Bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) is a chronic lung disease that affects primarily preterm infants. Genetic factors are also taken into consideration in the pathogenesis of BPD. Genetic predispositions to higher production of inflammation mediators seem to be crucial. Material and methods: The aim of this study was to evaluate the possible relationship between polymorphisms: interleukin-1β +3953 C,T, interleukin-6 -174 G,C and -596 G,A, tumour necrosis factor -308 G,A and interleukin-1RN VNTR 86bp and the occurrence of BPD in a population of 100 preterm infants born from singleton pregnancy, before 32+0 weeks of gestation, exposed to antenatal steroids therapy, and without congenital abnormalities ...

N2 - Background: Inflammation plays an important role in the pathogenesis of bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD), but the exact nature of this inflammatory process is incompletely understood. Older infants with established BPD have higher levels of urinary leukotriene E4 (LTE4) compared to healthy infants of the same age. This suggests that cysteinyl leukotrienes may play a role in the abnormalities seen in BPD. Objectives: To measure urinary LTE4 levels during the first month of life in premature infants, and to determine whether there are significant differences in premature infants who develop BPD, as compared to those who do not develop BPD. Design: Prospective, blinded, controlled ...
Chronic lung disease (CLD) or bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) is a disease of premature babies who required prolonged support with their breathing and supplemental oxygen. These babies are at high risk of many short and long-term problems with their breathing, growth and development, including death in infancy or childhood. Studies have shown that these babies have higher energy expenditure and lower energy intake compared with babies without CLD/BPD. Increasing energy intake for these babies beyond standard levels may therefore seem beneficial. However, setting high targets for energy intake for these babies may not be achievable. Furthermore, methods of increasing energy intake such as increasing the milk volume or concentration or giving intravenous nutrition may lead to complications of their own. We planned to examine whether increasing energy intake for these babies improves their breathing status, their growth and development, and reduces their risk of death without producing significant ...

My lab is interested in the normal developmental processes that build the lung and how such processes go awry during lung malformations, injury and tumorigenesis. What is unique about my lab is our effort to develop a series of three-dimensional labeling and imaging methods such as optical projection tomography. We develop these novel methods to address a major challenge in studying the lung - its complex three-dimensional architecture including the tree-like airways and honeycomb-like alveoli, making it difficult to compare structures on conventional two-dimensional sections.

Bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) is a major chronic lung disease associated with preterm birth and characterized by alveolar simplification with dysmorphic microvasculature. Current BPD research focuses on myofibroblasts, alveolar type 2 (AT2) cells and the endothelium, but seems to leave out the elephant in the room, the alveolar type 1 (AT1) cell, ...
Bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) is the most prevalent chronic lung disease in infants and presents as a consequence of preterm birth. Due to the lack of effective preventive and treatment strategies, BPD currently represents a major therapeutic challenge that requires continued research efforts at the basic, translational, and clinical levels. However, not all very low birth weight premature babies develop BPD, which suggests that in addition to known gestational age and intrauterine and extrauterine risk factors, other unknown factors must be involved in this diseases development. One of the main goals in BPD research is the early prediction of very low birth weight infants who are at risk of developing BPD in order to initiate the adequate preventive strategies. Other benefits of determining the risk of BPD include providing prognostic information and stratifying infants for clinical trial enrollment. In this article, we describe new opportunities to address BPDs complex pathophysiology by ...
COLD mainly involves two related diseases -- chronic bronchitis and emphysema. Chronic lung disease may be caused by smoking tobacco or by … I was diagnosed with COPD two years ago, and so far I manage to keep on with my life, although I stopped my regular exercise. Lifestyle. Replacement AAT (Prolastin), derived from human blood which has been screened for viruses, is injected weekly or bimonthly for life. With a program of complete respiratory care, disability can be minimized, acute episodes prevented, hospitalizations reduced, and some early deaths avoided. Bronchopulmonary dysplasia is a serious complication of prematurity resulting from poor lung growth and lung injury. Survival of patients with COPD is clearly related to the degree of their lung function when they are diagnosed and the rate at which they lose this function. Bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD), also known as neonatal chronic lung disease (CLD), is an important cause of respiratory illness in preterm newborns that results in ...

While progress has been made in the treatment and prevention of BPD, the prevalence has not decreased. Hydrocortisones mineralocorticoid and glucocorticoid properties are beneficial in decreasing inflammatory processes that may be harmful to the developing lung. Studies indicate that hydrocortisone improves BPD-free survival and may decrease ventilation time. Hydrocortisone appears to be a safer alternative to dexamethasone, which historically demonstrated efficacy in the prevention of BPD, but was associated with short- and long-term adverse effects that may outweigh its benefit. ...
Only two previous studies have assessed DL,CO in adult survivors of BPD. Howling et al. 21 included a heterogeneous group of five subjects with birthweights ranging 990-2,268 g and gestations 28-35 weeks, all of whom had a normal DL,CO, while in the study by Vrijlandt et al. 18, the mean DL,CO for the eight subjects with BPD was 91.4%. In contrast, 16 (84%) of the 19 present tested subjects had a low DL,CO. The median (range) z-score was -5.04 (-13.17- -1.24), possibly reflecting more severe perinatal disease in the current study cohort. Surprisingly, the DL,CO correlated poorly with the severity of emphysema as assessed by voxel index (fig. 6⇑), and only seven of these 16 subjects had accompanying airflow limitation. Since BPD is characterised by arrested airspace and pulmonary vascular development 28, the possibility of established or emerging pulmonary vascular disease is of concern in this group and is currently being evaluated 28, 29.. All of the subjects in the present study had abnormal ...

Background: Bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) is characterized by structural lung changes which may affect ventilation distribution. Volumetric capnography (VC) has been used in adults to provide information on ventilation homogeneity and ventilation-over-perfusion status. The aim of this study was to assess the value of VC in assessing ventilation homogeneity in infants with BPD.. Methods: Lung function (tidal breathing - multiple breath washout) parameters from 132 healthy infants (94 term, 38 preterm) and 66 infants with moderate or severe BPD were compared. Expiratory capnograms were obtained by mainstream capnography over 100 tidal breaths. The slopes of phases II (SII) and III (SIII) were calculated by linear regression on emprirically chosen intervals as follows: For SII between 5 and 60% of the end-expiratory CO2 fraction and for SIII between 40, 50, or 60 and 95% of the expiratory volume. The correlation between these indices and lung clearence index (LCI) was also assessed.. Results: ...

N2 - Bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) is a chronic lung disease of infants that is characterized by interrupted lung development. Postnatal sepsis causes BPD, yet the contributory mechanisms are unclear. To address this gap, studies have used lipopolysaccharide (LPS) during the alveolar phase of lung development. However, the lungs of infants who develop BPD are still in the saccular phase of development, and the effects of LPS during this phase are poorly characterized. We hypothesized that chronic LPS exposure during the saccular phase disrupts lung development by mechanisms that promote inflammation and prevent optimal lung development and repair. Wild-type ...
Bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) is one of the most serious chronic lung diseases in infancy and one of the most important sequels of premature birth (prevalence of 15-50%). Our objective was to estimate the cost of BPD of one preterm baby, with no other major prematurity-related complications, during the first 2 years of life in Spain. Data from the Spanish Ministry of Health regarding costs of diagnosis-related group of preterm birth, hospital admissions and visits, palivizumab administration, and oxygen therapy in the year 2013 were analyzed. In 2013, 2628 preterm babies were born with a weight under 1500 g; 50.9% were males. The need for respiratory support was 2.5% needed only oxygen therapy, 39.5% required conventional mechanical ventilation, and 14.9% required high-frequency ventilation. The incidence of BPD was of 34.9%. The cost of the first 2 years of life of a preterm baby with BPD and no other major prematurity-related complications ranged between 45,049.81 and 118,760.43 , in Spain, ...
Bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) is a chronic lung injury characterized by impaired alveologenesis that may persist into adulthood. Rat models of BPD using varying degrees of hyperoxia to produce injury either cause early mortality or spontaneously recover following removal of the inciting stimulus, thus limiting clinical relevance. We sought to refine an established rat model induced by exposure to 60% O from birth by following hyperoxia with intermittent hypoxia (IH). Rats exposed from birth to air or 60% O until day 14 were recovered in air with or without IH (FI = 0.10 for 10 min every 6 h) until day 28 Animals exposed to 60% O and recovered in air had no evidence of abnormal lung morphology on day 28 or at 10-12 wk. In contrast, 60% O-exposed animals recovered in IH had persistently increased mean chord length, more dysmorphic septal crests, and fewer peripheral arteries. Recovery in IH also increased pulmonary vascular resistance, Fulton index, and arterial wall thickness. IH-mediated ...

BACKGROUND: Bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) is a strong risk factor for respiratory morbidity in children born preterm. Our aims were to evaluate lung function in adolescents born preterm with and without a history of BPD, and to assess lung function change over time from school age. METHODS: Fifty-one individuals born in Stockholm, Sweden between gestational ages 24 to 31 weeks (23 neonatally diagnosed with respiratory distress syndrome (RDS) but not BPD, and 28 graded as mild (n = 17), moderate (n = 7) or severe (n = 4) BPD) were examined in adolescence (13-17 years of age) using spirometry, impulse oscillometry (IOS), plethysmography, and ergospirometry ...

Caffeine therapy for apnea of prematurity reduces the rate of bronchopulmonary dysplasia in infants with very low birth weight. (ClinicalTrials.gov number, NCT00182312.).
In the present study, we report that inhibition of PDE4s by rolipram in rabbit pups exposed to chorioamnionitis preserved antenatal and postnatal alveolarization, without modifying the inflammatory response. However, we observed marked intrauterine growth retardation and a very high incidence of stillbirth in animals treated with rolipram, results not yet reported in this model. Rolipram is the prototypical PDE4 selective inhibitor. PDEA4 enzyme is the main cAMP-metabolizing enzyme in immune and inflammatory cells, airway smooth muscle, and pulmonary nerves; its inhibition suppresses the recruitment and activation of several inflammatory cells (neutrophils, CD8 T cells, and macrophages) known to have a crucial role in the pathophysiological processes of bronchopulmonary dysplasia (Sanz et al., 2005; Hayes et al., 2010). In this context, we chose to test this new treatment in a previously described model of antenatal infection with subsequent impaired alveolarization in the rabbit (Gras-Le Guen ...
Cardiorespiratory function is not only the foremost determinant of life after premature birth, but also a major factor of long-term outcomes. However, the path from placental disconnection to nutritional autonomy is enduring and challenging for the preterm infant and, at each step, will have profound influences on respiratory physiology and disease. Fluid and energy intake, specific nutrients such as amino-acids, lipids and vitamins, and their ways of administration —parenteral or enteral—have direct implications on lung tissue composition and cellular functions, thus affect lung development and homeostasis and contributing to acute and chronic respiratory disorders. In addition, metabolomic signatures have recently emerged as biomarkers of bronchopulmonary dysplasia and other neonatal diseases, suggesting a profound implication of specific metabolites such as amino-acids, acylcarnitine and fatty acids in lung injury and repair, inflammation and immune modulation. Recent advances have

Over the past 4 years we have developed unique neonatal MRI capabilities that provide high-resolution, detailed images of lung parenchymal and vascular structures, regional cardiopulmonary function, and dynamic airway collapse, all during quiet breathing and without sedation or ionizing radiation. This collective information allows phenotyping of respiratory disease related to premature birth (bronchopulmonary dysplasia, BPD) and has the potential to significantly change the understanding and timecourse of this disease. Particularly, this provides avenues for personalized treatments via a combination of existing and new therapies ...
Results The total incidence of ROP was 11.94% and that of treatment-requiring ROP was 3.98%. Two patients with gestational age (GA) ,32 weeks and BW ,1500 g had treatment-requiring ROP. 15 eyes from eight infants with type I ROP required laser photocoagulation. The mean BWs and GAs in the treatment-requiring ROP group were significantly lower than those in the no or mild ROP group. Total duration of oxygen supplementation, surfactant usage, respiratory distress syndrome, bronchopulmonary dysplasia, antibiotic use for more than 14 days and the number of ROP-associated risk factors significantly increased the likelihood of treatment-requiring ROP (p=0.002, p=0.008, p=0.008, p=0.000, p=0.015, and p=0.004, respectively). ...
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Neovascularization is a key regulatory process in fetal growth and development. Alterations within this process can lead to concomitant vascular and tissue abnormalities identified within lung dysplasia such as Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia (BPD). Although a significant amount of information exist regarding the pathologic progression of dysplastic lung diseases, little is known regarding the molecular mechanisms that regulate their formation. The goal of this proposal is to establish, whether the vasculature is a determinant of normal distal lung morphogenesis. We are optimally suited to determine the factors regulating this relationship based on our previous findings that: 1) the anti-angiogenic protein Endothelial-Monocyte Activating Polypeptide (EMAP) II is a director of neovascularization in the developing lung as its expression is inversely correlated to periods of vascularization, 2) introduction of recombinant EMAP II in a murine allograft model of lung ...
Results The preterm group had substantial impairments in airflow at both ages compared with controls (eg, mean differences in z-score for FEV1; 8 years −1.02, 95% CI −1.21 to −0.82; 18 years −0.92, 95% CI −1.14 to −0.71). The preterm group had a greater increase in small airway obstruction between 8 and 18 years compared with controls. Within the preterm group, those who had bronchopulmonary dysplasia in the newborn period and those who were smokers at 18 years had airway obstruction that increased over time compared with those who did not. ...

The effects of bronchial arterial administration of vasoactive substances on the pulmonary circulation were studied by a new technique for selective catheterization of a bronchial artery in intact dogs. In most experiments, this technique permitted pressor agents to be distributed mainly to one lung with smaller amounts to the other lung. The intercostal arteries were avoided, and in all but 2 of 23 experiments only microscopic quantities of injected India ink could be identified in the distribution of the esophageal and mediastinal branches. These studies indicate that serotonin, angiotensin, histamine, and norepinephrine injected selectively into a bronchial artery increase lobar arterial pressure. Since blood flow was constant and left atrial pressure did not change, the increase in pressure suggests active pulmonary vasoconstriction. Additionally, the responses to bronchial and lobar arterial injections of pressor agents were similar. The contribution of bronchopulmonary shunt flow to ...

Some tests which detect cancer could be called screening for epithelial dysplasia. The principle behind these tests is that physicians expect dysplasia to occur at the same rate in a typical individual as it would in many other people. Because of this, researchers design screening recommendations which assume that if a physician can find no dysplasia at certain time, then doing testing before waiting until new dysplasia could potentially develop would be a waste of medical resources for the patient and the healthcare provider because the chances of detecting anything is extremely low. Some examples of this in practice are that if a patient whose endoscopy did not detect dysplasia on biopsy during screening for Barretts esophagus, then research shows that there is little chance of any test detecting dysplasia for that patient within three years.[2][3][4]. Individuals at average-risk for colorectal cancer should have another screening after ten years if they get a normal result and after five ...
