NEW ORLEANS — Use of spirometry with bronchodilator testing can help reduce overdiagnosis of COPD as well as help differentiate COPD from asthma and asthma-COPD overlap syndrome, researchers reported at the CHEST Annual Meeting. “Despite the Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease (GOLD) recommendation to use the post-bronchodilator FEV1/FVC ratio for diagnosis, spirometry with bronchodilator testing is not routinely used in clinical practice to diagnose COPD,” Srinadh Annangi, MD, from the University of Kentucky School of Medicine, told Healio Pulmonology. “In.

NEW ORLEANS — Switching inhaler types due to insurance formulary changes may lead to reduced lung function in children with asthma, according to data presented at the CHEST Annual Meeting. “Insurance formulary changes have been a major reason why many of our children with asthma who were otherwise stable have been switched from one long-term controller to another. Anecdotally, these changes cause considerable confusion for both families and health care professionals,” Scott G. Bickel, MD, from the University of Louisville School of Medicine, wrote in an email to Healio.

CHICAGO — Two endoscopic scoring indices originally designed for use in adults are reliable for endoscopic assessment in children with ulcerative colitis, according to research presented at NASPGHAN 2019. Amanda Ricciuto, MD , PhD, of the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, said that in the shift to endoscopic remission as a treatment target in UC, the UC Endoscopic Index of Severity (UCEIS) and the Mayo Endoscopic Sub-score (MES) have become valuable tools in assessing adult patients. “Neither has been formally validated or assessed in pediatrics,” she said during her.

Researchers were “encouraged” by the interim results from a phase 1 study of a novel influenza vaccine approach they hope will one day protect patients from both seasonal and pandemic influenza. They tested the ability of chimeric hemagglutinin (cHA)-based universal influenza vaccine candidates to target the conserved stalk of hemagglutinin surface proteins, rather than the globular head. “We are very encouraged that the preliminary data are compelling in terms of inducing a protective and long-lasting immune response in humans,” Peter Palese, PhD, professor and chair of.

CHICAGO — Despite some advantages, using carbon dioxide for endoscopic insufflation comes with a few safety concerns, according to research presented at the NASPGHAN Annual Meeting. Chinenye R. Dike, MD, of the University of Nebraska Medical Center, said that while CO2 has been used for many years in adult GI, air has been the standard in pediatrics. “We do know that there is compelling adult data on CO2 use for a variety of procedures, for colonoscopy, upper endoscopy and even advanced procedures,” she said in her presentation. “But what about using it in children?”

Miller, MD, said as he delivered the Charles D. Kelman Lecture at the American Academy of Ophthalmology annual meeting. Four companies currently produce.
