INTRODUCTION Getting a second opinion seems common in oncology, even though the management of these serious diseases results from a multidisciplinary approach. Our aim was to determine the incidence of requests for a second opinion in thoracic oncology at the university hospital of Nancy, since the establishment of the Cancer Plan in 2003. This plan(More)
INTRODUCTION The organization of care for chronic non-infectious diseases, notably COPD, is a common preoccupation in developed countries in which this disease is among the main causes of mortality and disability. We report a summary of a workshop organized on this theme in April 2013 by the Société de pneumologie de langue française. BACKGROUND Experts(More)
The Société de Pneumologie de Langue Française proposes a decision algorithm on long-term pharmacological COPD treatment. A working group reviewed the literature published between January 2009 and May 2016. This document lays out proposals and not guidelines. It only focuses on pharmacological treatments except vaccinations, smoking cessation treatments and(More)
This paper describes an automated implementable system for impulsive signals detection and recognition. The system uses a Digital Signal Processing device for the detection and identification process. Here the system analyses the signals in real time in order to produce a particular response if needed. The system analyses the signals in real time in order(More)
The transcription factor p53 is overexpressed in the lung of patients with emphysema, but it remains unclear if it has a deleterious or protective effect in disease progression. We investigated the role of p53 in the elastase-induced emphysema model and the molecular underlining mechanisms. Wild-type (WT) and p53(-/-) mice were instilled with pancreatic(More)
In patients with COPD, there is controversy regarding the association of blood eosinophil (Eos) levels with 1) exacerbation frequency and 2) the effect of inhaled corticosteroids for prevention of exacerbations. To determine whether Eos define subgroups of patients exhibiting attributes of COPD clinical phenotypes, we compared clinical features and(More)
INTRODUCTION The syndrome of combined basal pulmonary fibrosis and apical emphysema (CPFE) is characterised by severe dyspnoea not fully explained by pulmonary function tests that show subnormal lung volumes and expiratory flows while CT imaging reveals varying degrees of emphysema and interstitial fibrosis. CASE REPORT A man presented with chronic(More)
INTRODUCTION Rhabdoid tumours usually develop in brain and spinal cord or kidney; they are highly malignant neoplasms that typically arise in infancy and early childhood. However, rare cases of pulmonary localization have been described, particularly among young adults. CASE REPORT A 26-year-old man, smoker, had a right apical lung mass associated with a(More)
COPD is a common disease characterized by health status impairment and disability that is usually progressive. Exacerbations of COPD, an acute event in the course of the disease, have effects on symptoms and patient's quality of life. Assessment of symptoms and risk of exacerbations is useful to guide strategy management of the disease. COPD disability(More)
