In Korea, patients with destroyed lung due to tuberculosis (TB) account for a significant portion of those affected by chronic pulmonary function impairment. The objective of our research was to evaluate the efficacy of inhaled tiotropium bromide in TB destroyed lung.
Bronchial asthma is becoming increasingly prevalent worldwide. Although first-line therapy with inhaled corticosteroids (ICS) with or without long-acting β2 agonists (LABA) has significantly improved the clinical outcomes of asthma, they cannot provide all asthmatics with good control and thus alternatives or add-on drugs are required. Tiotropium is a long-acting muscarinic antagonist that has been used to treat chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and it has been approved for treating asthma in some coun...
Inhaled bronchodilators, including long-acting muscarinic receptor antagonists (LAMA) and long-acting beta2-adrenoreceptor agonists (LABA), are the mainstay of pharmacological treatment of stable chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Among approved LAMA, tiotropium bromide, glycopyrronium bromide and umeclidinium bromide, are administered once daily, whereas aclidinium bromide is administered every 12 hours. New LAMA are under development for COPD. Among the approved LABA, indacaterol has a 24-h dur...
Long-acting inhaled bronchodilators, including anticholinergic tiotropium, are recommended for the maintenance therapy of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). It has been shown in a number of studies that treatment with tiotropium alleviates symptoms, improves exercise tolerance, health status, and reduces exacerbations in patients with moderate to very severe stage COPD.
Long acting inhaled muscarinic receptor antagonists, such as tiotropium, are widely used as bronchodilator therapy for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Although this class of compounds is generally considered to be safe and well tolerated in COPD patients the cardiovascular safety of tiotropium has recently been questioned. We describe a rat in vivo model that allows the concurrent assessment of muscarinic antagonist potency, bronchodilator efficacy and a potential for side effects, and we use ...
Abstract Background: People with cystic fibrosis (CF) suffer from chronic lung disease that is often treated with a bronchodilator. This trial evaluated the pharmacokinetics, safety, and tolerability of single and multiple doses of tiotropium inhaled via the Respimat(®) Soft Mist™ Inhaler in patients with CF. Methods: Patients received a single dose (placebo, 2.5 μg, 5 μg, or 10 μg) and/or multiple doses (placebo, 2.5 μg, or 5 μg) of tiotropium daily for 28 days. Results: Ninety-two patien...
Combining bronchodilators with different mechanisms of action may improve efficacy and reduce risk of side effects compared to increasing the dose of a single agent in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). We investigated this by combining two long-acting bronchodilators: once-daily muscarinic antagonist tiotropium and once-daily β2-agonist olodaterol.
There is an ongoing debate on whether patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) seen in real-life clinical settings are represented in randomized controlled trials (RCTs) of COPD. It is thought that the stringent inclusion and exclusion criteria of RCTs may prevent the participation of patients with specific characteristics or risk factors.
Two once-daily inhaled bronchodilators, indacaterol and tiotropium, are widely used as first-line therapy in stable COPD patients. This study was performed to compare the clinical efficacy and safety between indacaterol and tiotropium in patients with moderate-to-severe COPD. MEDLINE, EMBASE, and Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials were searched to identify all published randomized controlled trials (RCTs). The primary outcome was trough forced expiratory volume in 1 second (FEV1) at week 12. Fou...
Tiotropium or salmeterol as add-on therapy to inhaled corticosteroids for patients with moderate symptomatic asthma: two replicate, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel-group, active-comparator, randomised trials.
In patients with severe asthma, tiotropium improves lung function and exacerbation risk when added to high-dose inhaled corticosteroids plus long-acting β2 agonists. We aimed to assess the safety and efficacy of tiotropium in patients with moderate asthma who were symptomatic despite treatment with medium-dose inhaled corticosteroids.
Umeclidinium/vilanterol (Anoro(®) Ellipta™; Laventair™) is an inhaled fixed-dose combination of a long-acting muscarinic receptor antagonist and a long-acting β2-adrenoceptor agonist. It is available in several countries, including Japan, the USA, Canada and those of the EU, where it is indicated for oral inhalation in adults with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Umeclidinium/vilanterol is administered once daily using the Ellipta™ multi-dose dry powder inhaler, which is regarded as eas...
Patients with Pulmonary Tuberculosis (PTB) often develop impairment in pulmonary function due to anatomical changes secondary to the illness. Physiotherapy in the form of pulmonary rehabilitation has been advocated.
We describe a patient with fibrosing mediastinitis after childhood histoplasmosis who presented with severe pulmonary hypertension secondary to pulmonary vein stenoses. Stenting of 2 stenosed pulmonary veins via a transseptal approach resulted in an immediate decrease in systolic pulmonary artery pressure from 90 to 68 mm Hg and improvement in dyspnea and cardiac index, which was sustained at 6 months. This case highlights the importance of routinely assessing the pulmonary veins during workup for pulmonary...
Combining two long-acting bronchodilators with complementary mechanisms of action may provide treatment benefits to patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) that are greater than those derived from either treatment alone. The efficacy and safety of a fixed-dose combination (FDC) of aclidinium bromide, a long-acting muscarinic antagonist, and formoterol fumarate, a long-acting β2-agonist, in patients with moderate to severe COPD are presented.
Pulmonary hypertension has multifactorial pathophysiology with endothelial dysfunction, vasoconstriction, pulmonary vessel wall remodeling and plexiform lesions contributing to increased pulmonary vascular resistance. Recent studies showed the importance of several mediators in PH pathophysiology, including prostacyclin, nitric oxide, serotonine, endothelin 1, several cytokines, chemokines, as well as members of the transforming growth factor β family (TGF-β). Current article summarizes new classification...
This review highlights the right ventricular (RV) involvement in pulmonary hypertension from pathophysiologic changes to current imaging tools used to screen, diagnose and follow up RV function in patients with pulmonary hypertension.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the rate of overdiagnosis of pulmonary embolism (PE) by pulmonary CT angiography (CTA) in a tertiary-care university hospital.
To evaluate the rate of agreement of pulmonary embolism in CT-pulmonary angiogram (CTPA) studies and to evaluate the rate of inaccurate interpretations in the community hospital setting.
On March 22, 2015, the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) was notified by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) of four cases of suspected acute methyl bromide toxicity among family members vacationing at a condominium resort in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Methyl bromide is a pesticide that has been banned in the United States for use in homes and other residential settings. An investigation conducted by the U.S. Virgin Islands Department of Health (VIDOH), the U.S. Virgin Island...
Pulmonary hypertension is a relatively common phenomenon in patients with hepatic cirrhosis and can appear through various mechanisms. The most characteristic scenario that binds portal and pulmonary hypertension is portopulmonary syndrome. However, hyperdynamic circulation, TIPS placement and heart failure can raise the mean pulmonary artery pressure without increasing the resistances. These conditions are not candidates for treatment with pulmonary vasodilators and require a specific therapy. A correct as...
Bromate formation in bromide-containing water through the cobalt (Co)-mediated activation of peroxymonosulfate (PMS) was investigated. Increasing the PMS dosage and the cobalt dosage increased the formation of bromate and bromate yields of up to 100% were recorded under the test conditions. The bromate yield increased to a maximum as the pH rose from 2.7 to 6 before decreasing by over 90% as the pH rose further from 6 to above 9. The bromate formation is a two-step process involving free bromine as a key in...
