Foreword
A new classification system for chronic lung allograft dysfunction.
Accumulation of dendritic cells and increased CCL20 levels in the airways of patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
TLDR
This is the first description of airway infiltration by DC in COPD and interaction between CCL20 and CCR6 provides a possible mechanism for accumulation of DC in the lungs in COPd.
An international ISHLT/ATS/ERS clinical practice guideline: diagnosis and management of bronchiolitis obliterans syndrome
TLDR
The expert committee discussed the available research evidence and formulated specific recommendations about the use of systemic corticosteroids, cyclosporine, tacrolimus, azithromycin and about re-transplantation in patients with suspected and confirmed BOS.
The Role of the IL23/IL17 Axis in Bronchiolitis Obliterans Syndrome After Lung Transplantation
TLDR
Bronchiolitis obliterans syndrome is the leading cause of death after lung transplantation and the precise pathophysiology remains unclear.
Gastro-oesophageal reflux and gastric aspiration in lung transplant patients with or without chronic rejection
TLDR
Pepsin was a more general marker and bile acids a more specific marker that might be associated with bronchiolitis obliterans syndrome and proton pump inhibitor treatment did not prevent nonacid reflux and gastric aspiration.
Lung donor selection and management.
TLDR
The current evidence from the literature is updated to identify and select potential lung donors and to manage cadaveric donors to maximally increase the organ yield for lung transplantation.
