    Title Telomere Lengths, Pulmonary Fibrosis and Telomerase (tert) Mutations.
    Date September 2010
    Journal Plos One

    Telomerase is an enzyme that catalyzes the addition of nucleotides on the ends of chromosomes. Rare loss of function mutations in the gene that encodes the protein component of telomerase (TERT) have been described in patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF). Here we examine the telomere lengths and pulmonary fibrosis phenotype seen in multiple kindreds with heterozygous TERT mutations.

    Title Making the Diagnosis of Occupational Asthma: when to Suspect It and What to Do.
    Date April 2008
    Journal Primary Care

    Although most adult patients seen by a clinician are employed, medical school curricula and residency training rarely cover occupational exposures and resultant diseases, even common ones that are encountered in a typical medical practice. This primer on occupational asthma is intended for the primary care clinician to provide the essential tools to diagnose and treat airways disease in the workplace. Using a case vignette format, we review the basic approach to suspecting and establishing a diagnosis of occupational asthma and address the thornier question of what to do about it. After reviewing this primer, the reader will be able to routinely include occupational asthma as part of the differential diagnoses in the adult patient with new or worsened asthma.

    Title Nontuberculous Mycobacteria in Aerosol Droplets and Bulk Water Samples from Therapy Pools and Hot Tubs.
    Date February 2008
    Journal Journal of Occupational and Environmental Hygiene

    Hot tub exposure has been causally associated with a steroid-responsive, granulomatous lung disease featuring nontuberculous mycobacterial (NTM) growth in both clinical and environmental samples. Little is known regarding prevalence of and risk factors for NTM-contamination and associated illness in these settings. In this study, the frequency of NTM growth and aerosolization in 18 public hot tubs and warm water therapy pools and the factors associated with mycobacterial growth were analyzed. Each site was characterized by water chemistry analysis; a questionnaire on maintenance, disinfection, and water quality; and air and water sampling for quantitative NTM culture. NTM were detected in air or water from 13/18 (72%) sites; a strong correlation was found between the maximum air and water NTM concentrations (rho 0.49, p = 0.04). Use of halogen (chlorine or bromine) disinfection was associated with significantly lower air and water concentrations of NTM compared with disinfection using ultraviolet light and hydrogen peroxide (p = 0.01-0.04). Higher water turnover rates were also associated with lower air and water NTM concentrations (p = 0.02-0.03). These findings suggest that NTM are frequently detectable in the air and water of spas and therapy pools and that particular maintenance and disinfection approaches affect NTM bioaerosol concentrations in these settings.

    Title Occupational Interstitial Lung Disease.
    Date November 2004
    Journal Clinics in Chest Medicine

    Occupational interstitial lung diseases are a diverse group of disorders of varied cause. Occupational causes account for a significant portion of all interstitial lung diseases, and new causes continue to be described. Although some are diseases of antiquity, they continue to occur in the workplace and often are misdiagnosed as "idiopathic" when physicians miss the connection to past-inhaled exposures. All of these diseases are preventable with reduction or elimination of workplace exposure. This article reviews the spectrum of diseases caused by exposure to metal dust and fumes, inorganic fibers, and nonfibrous inorganic dust. It also details an approach to the diagnosis, evaluation, and management of this group of illnesses.

    Title Clinical and Radiologic Manifestations of Hypersensitivity Pneumonitis.
    Date December 2002
    Journal Journal of Thoracic Imaging

    Hypersensitivity pneumonitis (HP) is an inflammatory interstitial lung disease caused by recurring exposure to a variety of occupational and environmental antigens. It features widely variable clinical, radiologic, and histopathologic findings. Because the clinical findings of HP mimic multiple other diseases, a high degree of clinical suspicion and a thorough occupational and environmental history are essential for accurate diagnosis. There is no single pathognomonic feature for HP; rather, diagnosis relies on a constellation of clinical, radiologic, and pathologic findings. The radiologic manifestations, particularly the high-resolution computed tomography (HRCT) pattern, provide important clues and frequently point clinicians towards the correct diagnosis. The HRCT findings in HP may include ground-glass opacification, centrilobular nodules, air trapping (mosaic pattern), fibrosis, emphysema, or more frequently a combination of these. The combination of a mosaic pattern with ground-glass opacification and centrilobular nodules is particularly suggestive of the diagnosis. The best long-term prognosis is achieved with early diagnosis and removal from exposure.

    Title Respiratory Protection.
    Date September 2002
    Journal The New England Journal of Medicine
    Title Acute Eosinophilic Pneumonia in Aids.
    Date December 2001
    Journal Chest

    A 39-year-old man with AIDS presented with acute respiratory distress and diffuse bilateral infiltrates seen on a chest radiograph. Acute eosinophilic pneumonia (AEP) was diagnosed by thoracoscopic lung biopsy. There was no evidence of an infectious etiology, and the patient rapidly improved with corticosteroid therapy. Several of the idiopathic interstitial pneumonias have been reported in adult patients with AIDS. To our knowledge, this case represents the first tissue-confirmed case of AEP associated with adult AIDS.
