Abstract Although recent retrospective studies suggested that the use of β-blockers appears to help improve the mortality rate and decrease the rate of exacerbation in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patients with heart failure, the effects of β-blockers on COPD patients without heart failure have not been established. Based on previous reports, we have launched a multicenter, prospective, single-arm phase II study to evaluate the preventive effect of the cardioselective β-blocker bisoprolol in COPD exacerbation, in Japanese individuals with moderate-to-severe COPD who do not have heart failure but do have hypertension requiring the use of medication. The primary endpoint is the rate of mild-to-severe COPD exacerbation. The results of this study will clarify whether bisoprolol can prevent exacerbation in COPD patients without heart failure.

Abstract Bronchiolitis obliterans (BO) is a disease with a poor prognosis, and a key factor that limits long-term survival after allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). We here report a case of a 31-year woman with acute lymphatic leukemia, which was treated by chemotherapy and HSCT, and consequently developed BO 2 years after HSCT. A non-tuberculous mycobacterial infection occurred and showed gradual exacerbation. She started taking anti-mycobacterial drugs, but lost appetite, felt tired and finally lost consciousness one month after beginning medication. Arterial blood gas revealed marked hypercapnia. Using extracorporeal life support (ECLS), the carbon dioxide concentration was reduced and her consciousness recovered. To our knowledge, this is the first case in which ECLS was successfully used for hypercapnia in a patient with BO.

Abstract Churg-Strauss syndrome (CSS) is a granulomatous necrotizing vasculitis of unknown etiology associated with bronchial asthma. Despite affecting small to medium-sized vessels, necrosis of the digits due to vasculitis is extremely rare. We report a case of CSS with necrosis of the toe tips. A 37-year-old woman with asthma, who had been diagnosed with CSS 2 years ago, was admitted to our hospital with an exacerbation of CSS. The patient had a high grade fever and complained of abdominal pain and numbness of the lower extremities. Blood examination revealed marked eosinophilia. The fever pattern, abdominal pain and blood eosinophilia showed improvement by combination treatment with prednisolone and cyclophosphamide. However, the color of her right toe tips changed, and necrosis finally resulted despite antithrombotic therapy. Arteriography showed narrowing of the dorsalis pedis artery and of the more peripheral arteries of her right leg. Stump plasty with negative pressure dressing therapy for the toe tips, but not amputation, was done to preserve the leg function. While numbness of the extremities remained, no recurrence of necrosis was seen. Clinicians need to be aware that rare complications of CSS, including necrosis of the digits, can occur.

Abstract <p>Propionibacterium acnes has been implicated as an etiologic agent of sarcoidosis since the isolation of this bacterium from sarcoid lesions. We experimentally produced a murine pulmonary granuloma model using P. acnes with several features that simulate sarcoidosis. Mice were sensitized with heat-killed P. acnes and complete Freund's adjuvant and were subsequently challenged with heat-killed P. acnes at 2-week intervals. P. acnes-challenged mice developed epitheloid cell granulomas in the lungs. These mice showed a pulmonary immune response characterized by an increased number of T-lymphocytes, especially CD4 cells, and the ratio of CD4/CD8 in bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) fluid also increased. Furthermore, significant elevations in both angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) serum levels and antibody titers against P. acnes were observed. Mice sensitized with P. acnes without complete Freund's adjuvant were capable of forming pulmonary granulomas, which appeared to be caused by indigenous P. acnes. The genome of P. acnes was found in the lungs, BAL cells, hilar lymph nodes, liver, and spleen in non-sensitized mice, which were thought to be germ-free. These results suggest that the immune response against indigenous P. acnes may play an important role in the pathogenesis of granuloma formation in a murine model.</p>

Abstract A 71-year-old Japanese man with adenocarcinoma of the lung developed interstitial pneumonia after treatment with paclitaxel. The patient had acute chills and fever on the fourth day after the second exposure to paclitaxel, rapidly got worse despite empiric therapies, and developed prolonged respiratory failure requiring mechanical ventilation. Four months later, he died of respiratory failure due to progression of both interstitial pneumonia and lung cancer. This is the first case developing fatal paclitaxel-induced pulmonary toxicity to date. Interstitial pneumonia should be considered one of the possible life-threatening complications during treatment with paclitaxel.

Abstract (目的) MRlは腰痛をきたす疾患の診断に必須な検査法である。腰痛と腰椎MRl所見との関係を明らかにすることを目的として検討した。(対象と方法)腰痛を訴えた30例を対象とし、腰椎MRl所見の頻度を調査した。全例に温泉療法を施行した。  (結果)全症例において腰椎MRl上異常所見を認めた。少なくとも1つ以上の椎間板の変性病変をもつ症例は30例中27例(90% )で、椎間板変性はL4/5levelで最も多く認められた(30例中18例)。椎間板ヘルニア を示す症例は30例中10例(33.3% )であった。神経根圧迫を持つ症例は30例中8例(26.7% )であった。腰椎圧迫骨折を持つ症例は30例中6例(20% )であった。温泉療法により腰痛が改善した症例は30例中17例(56.7% )であった。  (結論)腰痛症患者は腰椎MR止異常所見を有した。温泉療法により腰痛の改善を認めたので、MRL上で認めた形態学的異常は必ずしも機能的異常や症状に直結しないと思われた。
Abstract Alternative (Purpose) Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is essential to diagnosis of diseases which happen low back pain. The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between low back pain and the characteristics on MRI scans of the lumbar spine. (Materials and Methods) We performed MRI examinations of lumbar spine in 30 patients with low back pain and examined the prevalence of abnormal findings on MRI scans of the lumbar spine in 30 patients with low back pain. (Results) Overall in present study, all patients with low back pain had abnormalities around the lumbar spines on MRI. Disc degeneration was present in one or more lumbar levels in 27 (90% ) of all the subjects. The disc degeneration was most commonly observed at U/LS, where 18 (60% ) of all the subjects displayed evidence of disc degeneration. Disc herniation was found in 10 (33.3% ) of all the subjects. Nerve root compression at one level or more was observed in 8 (26.7% ) of the subjects. Compression fracture at one level or more was observed in 6 (20% ) of all the subjects. Spa therapy improved low back pain in 17 (56. 7% ) of the subjects. (Conclusion) All patients with low back pain had abnormalities around the lumbar spines on MRI. Because spa therapy improved low back pain, morphological abnormalities on MRI scans don't always connect with functional abnormalities and symptoms.

Abstract Dietary sources of a -linolenic acid, such as perilla seed oil, may have the capacity to inhibit the generation of leukotrienes (LTs) by leucocytes in patients with asthma, as has been reported with the consumption of other long - chain n- 3 fatty a-cids. The factors affecting the suppression of leukotriene (LT) C4 generation by leucocytes were examined by comparing the clinical features of patients with asthma who had been given dietary perilla seed oil (n - 3 fatty acids). Group A consisted of patients in whom the leucocyte generation of dietary perilla seed oil LTC4 was suppressed by this procedure. Group B consisted of those in whom LTC4 generation was not suppressed. LTC4 generation by leucocytes significantly decreased in group A for two (P<0.05) and four weeks (P<O. OS), conversely, significantly increased in group B for four weeks (p<O. OS). The two study groups differed significantly in LTC4 generation by leucocytes after four weeks of dietary supplementation (P<0.05). Ventilatory parameters such as peak expiratory flow (PEF) , forced vital capacity (FVC) and forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV(1.O)) increased significantly after four weeks of dietary supplementation in group A (P<0.05). Values of PEF, FVC, FEV(1.O) and V(25) between groups A and B significantly differed prior to dietary supplementation. Serum levels of total cholesterol, LDL- cholesterol and phospholipid were significantly decreased by dietary supplementation in group A after four weeks. Serum levels of total-choles terol, triglyceride, HDL-Cholesterol, LDL-Cholesterol and phospholipid values between the two study groups differed significantly prior to dietary supplementation. Serum levels of triglyceride and LDL- cholesterol differed significantly between the two study groups after four weeks of dietary supplementation. The effects of dietary supplementation with perilla seed oil to patients with asthma by suppressing the generation of LTC4 is associated with clinical features such as respiratory function and lipometabolism.
Abstract Alternative エゴマ油のようなα-リノレン酸食が他のn-3系不飽和脂肪酸食において報告されてきた様に喘息患者の白血球ロイコトリエン(LTs)産生能を抑制すると考えられる。そこでエゴマ油(n-3系脂肪酸)を摂取した気管支喘息患者の臨床所見を比較することによって白血球ロイコトリエン(LT)C4の抑制に影響する因子を検討した。A群はエゴマ油摂取により白血球LTC4の産生能が抑制された群であり、B群は白血球LTC4の産生能が抑制されなかった群である。A群では食事摂取2週後(P<0.05),4週後(P<0.05)に白血球LTC4産生能が低下した。逆にB群では摂取4週後有意に増加した(P<0.05)0 2群間で食事摂取4遡後に白血球LTC4産生能に有意差がみられた(P<0.05)。ピークフロー値(PEF)、努力性肺活量(FVC)、1秒量(FEV(1))といった呼吸機能はA群において食事摂取4週後に有意に上昇した(P<0.05)。食事摂取前のPEF、FVC、FEV(1)、V(25)はA群,B群の2群間で有意差がみられた。A群において血清総コレステロール、低比重リポ蛋白(LDL)コレステロール、リン脂質は食事摂取4週後に有意に低下した。食事摂取前の血清総コレステロール、中性脂肪、高比重リポ蛋白コレステロール、LDLコレステロール、リン脂質において2群間に有意差がみられた。血清中性脂肪、LDLコレステロールは食事摂取4週後2群間に有意差がみられた。気管支喘息患者のある群へのエゴマ油食はLTC4産生能を抑制し、それには呼吸機能や脂質代謝といった臨床因子が関連していると考えられた。
