OBJECTIVES: Although progress has been made in the standardized interpretation of nocturnal oximetry in children with obstructive sleep-disordered breathing (SDB), no evidence exists on oximetry abnormalities in other respiratory disorders. We aimed to compare obstructive lung disease (OLD) and SDB regarding nocturnal oximetry parameters. METHODS: We analyzed oximetry recordings from children with (i) OLD (obliterative bronchiolitis; cystic fibrosis); (ii) snoring and adenotonsillar hypertrophy (SDB); and (iii) no respiratory disorder (controls)...

BACKGROUND: Interleukin-17A (IL-17A) is a pro-inflammatory cytokine that has gained a lot of attention because of its involvement in respiratory diseases. Interleukin-17 cytokine family includes six members, out of which IL-17A participates towards the immune responses in allergy and inflammation. It also modulates the progression of respiratory disorders. OBJECTIVE: The present review is an insight into the involvement and contributions of the pro-inflammatory cytokine IL-17A in chronic respiratory diseases like idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), chronic obstructive pulmonary distress (COPD), asthma, pneumonia, obliterative bronchiolitis, lung cancer and many others...

PURPOSE: Suppressor of cytokine signaling-3 (SOCS3) is a negative feedback inhibitor of cytokine signaling with T-cell-mediated immunosuppressive effects on obliterative bronchiolitis (OB). In this study, we aimed to investigate the impact of T-cell-specific overexpression of SOCS3 using a murine heterotopic tracheal transplantation (HTT) model. METHODS: Tracheal allografts from BALB/c mice were subcutaneously transplanted into wild-type C57BL/6J (B6; WT) mice and SOCS3 transgenic B6 (SOCS3TG) mice...

BACKGROUND: After lung transplantation, the major complication limiting the long-term survival of allografts is obliterative bronchiolitis (OB), characterized by chronic rejection. Innate immune responses contribute to the development of OB. In this study, we used a murine heterotopic tracheal transplantation mouse model to examine the effects of a newtype of innate immune inhibitor, TJ-M2010-5. METHODS: Syngeneic tracheal grafts were transplanted heterotopically from C57BL/6 mice to C57BL/6 mice...

BACKGROUND: Airway epithelium is the primary target of trachea and lung transplant rejection, the degree of epithelial injury is closely correlated with obliterative bronchiolitis development. In this study, we investigated the cellular and molecular mechanisms of IL-17A-mediated airway epithelial injury after transplantation. METHODS: Murine orthotopic allogeneic trachea or lung transplants were implemented in wild type or RORγt mice. Recipients received anti-IL-17A or anti-IFNγ for cytokine neutralization, anti-CD8 for CD8 T cell depletion, or STAT3-inhibitor to suppress Th17/Tc17 development...

BACKGROUND: Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a systemic autoimmune condition characterized by erosive inflammation of the joints. One rare pulmonary manifestation is obliterative bronchiolitis (OB), a small airways disease characterized by the destruction of bronchiolar epithelium and airflow obstruction. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed the clinical data of patients with rheumatoid arthritis-associated obliterative bronchiolitis (RA-OB) from 01/01/2000 to 12/31/2015...

BACKGROUND: Cellular and molecular mechanisms of acute and chronic lung allograft rejection have yet to be clearly defined, and obliterative bronchiolitis (OB) remains the primary limitation to survival in lung transplant recipients (LTRs). We have previously shown that T-bet-deficient recipients of full major histocompatibility complex (MHC)-mismatched, orthotopic left lung transplants develop accelerated obliterative airway disease (OAD) in the setting of acute cellular rejection characterized by robust alloimmune CD8+ interleukin (IL)-17 and interferon (IFN)-γ responses that are attenuated with neutralization of IL-17...

OBJECTIVES: Chronic aspiration of gastric fluid contents can decrease long-term survival of pulmonary transplants due to development of obliterative bronchiolitis. However, little is known about the early immune response and the cascade of events involved in the development of obliterative bronchiolitis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We utilized a rat orthotopic pulmonary transplant model and a single aspiration of either gastric fluid or normal saline to investigate the histologic, cellular, and cytokine changes associated with an acute gastric fluid aspiration event compared with normal saline at 2 and 10 days after aspiration...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Exposure-related bronchiolitis is increasingly recognized as an important but challenging clinical diagnosis. Acute and chronic inhalational exposures are associated with variable clinical presentations and a spectrum of histopathologic abnormalities affecting the small airways. This review provides an overview of the histologic patterns and occupational settings for exposure-related bronchiolitis, along with recent advances in disease diagnosis and management. RECENT FINDINGS: The entire histopathologic spectrum of bronchiolitis (constrictive, obliterative, proliferative, lymphocytic, respiratory) has been reported in exposure-related bronchiolitis...

Chronic lung allograft dysfunction continues to be the main contributor to poor long-term allograft survival after lung transplantation. The restrictive phenotype of chronic lung allograft dysfunction carries a particularly poor prognosis. Little is known about the pathogenetic mechanisms involved in restrictive chronic lung allograft dysfunction. In this study, we performed histomorphological and immunohistochemical analysis of restrictive chronic lung allograft dysfunction lungs. Explant lung tissue from 21 restrictive chronic lung allograft dysfunction patients was collected and histopathologic patterns of rejection, fibrosis and vascular changes were scored after routine histochemical stains and additional immunohistochemistry for endothelial markers and C4d...

RATIONALE: Obliterative bronchiolitis (OB) is a major cause of mortality after lung transplantation. Depletion of airway stem cells (SCs) may lead to fibrosis in OB. OBJECTIVES: Two major SC compartments in airways are submucosal glands (SMGs) and surface airway p63 (also known as TP63 [tumor protein 63])-positive/K5 (also known as KRT5 [keratin 5])-positive basal cells (BCs). We hypothesized that depletion of these SC compartments occurs in OB. METHODS: Ferret orthotopic left lung transplants were used as an experimental model of OB, and findings were corroborated in human lung allografts...

Inhalation exposure to diacetyl (DA) is associated with obliterative bronchiolitis (OB) in workers and induces OB-like fibrotic airway lesions in rats. The pathogenesis of OB is poorly understood in part due to complex interactions between airway epithelial, mesenchymal and blood-derived inflammatory cells. DA-induced airway toxicity in the absence of recruited-inflammatory/immune cells was characterized using an air-liquid interface (ALI) model consisting of human airway epithelium with (Epi/FT) and without (Epi) a mesenchymal component...

Chronic lung allograft dysfunction (CLAD) remains a major hurdle limiting long-term survival post lung transplantation. Given the clinical heterogeneity of CLAD, recently two phenotypes of CLAD have been defined [bronchiolitis obliterans syndrome (BOS) vs. restrictive allograft syndrome (RAS) or restrictive CLAD (rCLAD)]. BOS is characterized by an obstructive pulmonary function, air trapping on CT and obliterative bronchiolitis (OB) on histopathology, while RAS/rCLAD patients show a restrictive pulmonary function, persistent pleuro-parenchymal infiltrates on CT and pleuroparenchymal fibro-elastosis on biopsies...

Acute allograft rejection is a principal conundrum in lung obliterative bronchiolitis (OB). Monocytes/macrophages infiltration has been proved to be the main reason for acute rejection. IL-17 contributes to the recruitment and function of macrophages. However, the mechanism of IL-17 underlying OB progression remains elusive. In the present study, we showed that the deficiency of IL-17 attenuated the pathology of murine heterotopic trachea allografts. Compared to WT recipients, IL-17-/- mice displayed higher frequency of CD206+ cells and lower ratio of CD86+ cells among F4/80+ macrophages in allografts and spleens on day 7 post heterotopic trachea transplantation...

Swyer-James-MacLeod syndrome (SJMS) is a rare syndrome of acute obliterative bronchiolitis following an early childhood infective insult to the lungs. This causes arrest of alveolarization, affecting lung development with hypoplasia of the ipsilateral pulmonary artery and results in a characteristic radiological pattern, such as a unilateral hyperlucent lung with expiratory air-trapping and pruned-tree appearance on pulmonary angiogram. The clinical presentation is either recurrent chest infections, exertional dyspnoea or it may be an incidental finding...

BACKGROUND: Long-term survival of lung transplantation is hindered by the development of obliterative bronchiolitis (OB). Adipose-derived stem cells (ASCs) were documented to have more potent immunosuppressive ability than mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) from bone marrow and placenta. The goal of our study is to evaluate the effect of repeated administration of ASCs on OB and the involvement of indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase (IDO) mediating the protective effect of ASCs in a heterotopic tracheal transplantation (HTT) model...

The most well-known disease caused by cotton dust is byssinosis though it is also associated with chronic obstructive airways disease, and very rarely, interstitial lung disease. Obliterative bronchiolitis has never been reported in this setting. We report a 63-year-old, nonsmoker male, who presented with complaints of cough and exertional dyspnoea for 10 years. He had worked in textile industry for 35 years and symptoms had persisted even after quitting. Examination revealed prolonged expiration with expiratory wheeze, and pulmonary function tests revealed severe airflow limitation with air trapping and impaired diffusion capacity...
