Clinical characteristics of patients in a case control study of sarcoidosis.
TLDR
It is concluded that the initial presentation of sarcoidosis is related to sex, race, and age. Expand
An official American Thoracic Society clinical practice guideline: the clinical utility of bronchoalveolar lavage cellular analysis in interstitial lung disease.
TLDR
Recommendations for the performance and processing of BAL, as well as the interpretation of BAL findings, were formulated by the committee and frequently provide useful information for the diagnostic evaluation of patients with suspected ILD. Expand
Genetic variation in Pneumocystis carinii isolates from different geographic regions: implications for transmission.
TLDR
Genetic variation at the two loci suggests that most cases of PCP do not result from infections acquired early in life, that infections are actively acquired from a relatively common source (humans or the environment), and that humans, while not necessarily involved in direct infection of other humans, are nevertheless important in the transmission cycle of P. carinii f. Expand
A concise review of pulmonary sarcoidosis.
TLDR
There is increasing evidence to support that one or more infectious agents may cause sarcoidosis, although this organism may no longer be viable in the patient, and new and more potent antiinflammatory agents have been developed. Expand
Utility of a lung biopsy for the diagnosis of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis.
TLDR
It is suggested that clinical and radiologic data that result in a confident diagnosis of IPF by an experienced pulmonologist or radiologist are sufficient to obviate the need for a lung biopsy. Expand
Double-blind randomised controlled trial of monoclonal antibody to human tumour necrosis factor in treatment of septic shock
TLDR
It was found there was no association between therapy with TNFα MAb and increased rapidity in reversal of initial shock or prevention of subsequent shock, and baseline plasma interleukin-6 concentrations were not associated with improvement in survival after TNF α MAb therapy. Expand
Two year prognosis of sarcoidosis: the ACCESS experience.
TLDR
It is indicated that sarcoidosis tends to improve or remain stable over two years in the majority of patients, and changes in FVC alone were inadequate to describe the change in pulmonary status of the patients, as changes in chest radiographic findings or the level of dyspnea did often but not always move in the same direction as FVC. Expand
Surfactant proteins and thyroid transcription factor-1 in pulmonary and breast carcinomas.
TLDR
The usefulness of immunodetection of a pulmonary cell selective transcription protein (TTF-1) in the diagnosis of pulmonary adenocarcinoma is demonstrated, readily distinguishing breast carcinomas from primary pulmonaryAdenocARCinomas. Expand
Survival in sarcoidosis-associated pulmonary hypertension: the importance of hemodynamic evaluation.
TLDR
PH without LVD was associated with increased mortality and proper characterization of patients required hemodynamic evaluation, as 29% of sarcoidosis-associated PH was due to LVD. Expand
