ABPA is an important complication of chronic asthma resulting from hypersensitivity to the fungus Aspergillus Fumigatus ( AF}. ABPA is characterised by an intense immune response with increased use of oral steroids and potentially progressive lung disease. The aim of this study was to determine if treatment of subjects with ABPA with the antifungal agent Itraconazole (Itz) reduced airway and systemic inflammation. Methods: A randomised double blind placebo controlled trial was performed in stable subjects with ABPA (n=29). Subjects with cystic fibrosis ere excluded. The diagnosis of ABPA was based upon; the presence of asthma, IgE sensitisation to Af. a total serum IgE of lOOOIl'/mL or greater and serum IgG to Af or central bronchiectasis on CT scan. Subjects received Itz 400mg per day (n=15) or placebo (n=14) for 16 weeks. All subjects were reviewed monthly with history, spirometry. sputum induction to measure airway inflammation, serum total IgE and IgG to Af and blood eosinophils. Results: Subjects receiving Itz had a greater reduction in sputum eosinophils from baseline (median fall of 94.5%) compared to placebo (45.4%. p<0.01 ). Those on Itz had a fall in sputum total cell count from baseline (43.9%) compared to a rise in those on placebo (rise 10%. p=0.049). Subjects that received Itz also had a reduction in systemic immune activation; there was a fall in serum IgE (3IOIU/mL) compared to placebo (rise ISIU-'mL, p<0.01) and a fall in IgG to Af(15.4IU/mL) compared to placebo (rise 3.7IU-mL, p=0.03). Conclusion: Treatment of subjects with stable ABPA with Itz 400mg daily reduces eosinophilic airway inflammation along with measures of systemic immune activation. These results imply that Itz is a potential adjunctive treatment for ABPA and this should be further investigated with larger studies of lone term clinical efficacv.

2001Wild KL, Carless R, Hensley MJ, Rowley M, Pab W, 'The application of a ward based clinical pathway to facilitate the introduction of bi level positive airway pressure (bipap) in acute respiratory failure in copd', Respirology, 6 (2001)

The efficacy of BiPAP in acute respiratory failure in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is established, but challenges remain in introducing this into clinical practice. To facilitate this we devised a clinical pathway (CP) that combines treatment from intensive care and the respiratory ward. The aim of this study was to assess our ability to implement BiPAP treatment via this CP. Method: A retrospective case controlled study was undertaken. Consecutive subjects presenting with acute hypercapnoeic respiratory failure secondary to COPD were commenced on the BiPAP clinical pathway (n=17). They were compared to controls matched according to sex, age and severity of acute and chronic respiratory disease (n=34). Results: Only 1 subject treated with BiPAP needed to be intubated compared to 20 controls (p<0.01). The BiPAP group spent a mean of 22.9 hours in the ICU compared with 104 hours for the controls (pO.OOl), and had a mean length of stay in hospital of 7.9 days compared to 12.6 days in the controls (p=0.01). There was 1 death in the Bi PAP group and 7 in the control group (p=0.2). Conclusion: The introduction of BiPAP treatment through a CP has resulted in a significant improvement in patient outcomes and length of stay.

BACKGROUND: A key component of many asthma management guidelines is the recommendation for patient education and regular medical review. A number of controlled trials have been conducted to measure the effectiveness of asthma education programmes. These programmes improve patient knowledge, but their impact on health outcomes is less well established. This review was conducted to examine the strength of evidence supporting Step 6 of the Australian Asthma Management Plan: "Educate and Review Regularly"; to test whether health outcomes are influenced by education and self-management programmes. OBJECTIVES: The objective of this review was to assess the effects of asthma self-management programmes, when coupled with regular health practitioner review, on health outcomes in adults with asthma. SEARCH STRATEGY: We searched the Cochrane Airways Group trials register and reference lists of articles. SELECTION CRITERIA: Randomised trials of self-management education in adults over 16 years of age with asthma. DATA COLLECTION AND ANALYSIS: Trial quality was assessed and data were extracted independently by two reviewers. Study authors were contacted for confirmation. MAIN RESULTS: Twenty-five trials were included. Self-management education was compared with usual care in 22 studies. Self-management education reduced hospitalisations (odds ratio 0.57, 95% confidence interval 0.38 to 0.88); emergency room visits (odds ratio 0.71, 95% confidence interval (0.57 to 0.90); unscheduled visits to the doctor (odds ratio 0.57, 95% confidence interval 0.40 to 0.82); days off work or school (odds ratio 0.55, 95% confidence interval 0.38 to 0. 79); and nocturnal asthma (odds ratio 0.53, 95% confidence interval 0.39 to 0.72). Measures of lung function were little changed. Self-management programmes that involved a written action plan showed a greater reduction in hospitalisation than those that did not (odds ratio 0.35, 95% confidence interval 0.18 to 0.68). People who managed their asthma by self-adjustment of their medications using an individualised written plan had better lung function than those whose medications were adjusted by a doctor. REVIEWER'S CONCLUSIONS: Training in asthma self-management which involves self-monitoring by either peak expiratory flow or symptoms, coupled with regular medical review and a written action plan appears to improve health outcomes for adults with asthma. Training programmes which enable people to adjust their medication using a written action plan appear to be more effective than other forms of asthma self-management.

BACKGROUND: A key component of many asthma management guidelines is the recommendation for patient education and regular medical review. A number of controlled trials have been conducted to measure the effectiveness of asthma education programmes. These programmes improve patient knowledge, but their impact on health outcomes is less well established. At its simplest level, education is limited to the transfer of information about asthma, its causes and its treatment. This review focused on the effects of limited asthma education. OBJECTIVES: The objective of this review was to assess the effects of limited (i.e. information only) asthma education on health outcomes in adults with asthma. SEARCH STRATEGY: We searched the Cochrane Airways Group trials register and reference lists of articles. SELECTION CRITERIA: Randomised and controlled trials of individual asthma education involving information transfer only in adults over 16 years of age. DATA COLLECTION AND ANALYSIS: Trial quality was assessed and data were extracted independently by two reviewers. Study authors were contacted for missing information. MAIN RESULTS: Eleven trials were included. They were of variable quality. Limited asthma education did not reduce hospitalisation for asthma (weighted mean difference -0.03 average hospitalisations per person per year, 95% confidence interval -0.09 to 0.03). There was no effect on doctor visits, lung function and medication use. The effects on asthma symptoms were variable. There was no reduction in days lost from normal activity, but perceived asthma symptoms did improve after limited asthma education (odds ratio 0.40, 95% confidence interval 0.18 to 0.86). In one study, limited asthma education was associated with reduced emergency department visits (weighted mean difference -2.76 average visits per person per year, 95% confidence interval -4.34 to 1.18). REVIEWER'S CONCLUSIONS: Use of limited asthma education as it has been practiced does not appear to improve health outcomes in adults with asthma. However the use of information in the emergency department may be effective, but this needs to be confirmed.

The authors carried out a population-based case-control study to estimate the risk of an acute coronary disease event associated with various definitions of a family history of coronary heart disease (CHD). A detailed family history questionnaire was completed by 403 cases and 236 controls in Newcastle, New South Wales, Australia from 1992 to 1994. Odds ratios of an acute coronary disease event adjusted for proband age and sex ranged from 2.7 (95% confidence interval (CI) 1.8-4.1) for the simplest definition (one or more first-degree relatives with CHD at any age) to 5.4 (95% CI 1.7-16.8) for the most stringent definition (two or more first-degree relatives with CHD before age 55 years). In a series of nested models, the authors examined the improvement in model fit as each component of the detailed family history was added. Additional information was provided by accounting for 'don't know' responses, the number of affected relatives, the age of the affected relative, and whether the first-degree relative was a sibling rather than a parent. The results were similar when the data were analyzed as a cohort design with proband disease status as the exposure variable. The authors suggest that, to facilitate preventive efforts in a population, more detailed family history definitions should be used to better target high risk subjects.

To determine the effect of inhaled corticosteroid use on the development of cataracts in older adults. Design Community-based study with data collected during 1992 and 1993. Setting District general hospital west of Sydney, Australia. Patients 4433 patients who were born before 1943 were identified by door-to-door census and invited to attend the study clinic for an eye examination. 3654 attended, of whom 3313 (mean age 66 y, 57% women) provided information on corticosteroid use. Assessment of risk factors Patients completed questionnaires specifying inhaled corticosteroid use (currently, in the past, or never). Investigators categorized beclomediasone use for usual number of puffs/wk and cal-culated the estimated lifetime dose. Other risk factors assessed were history of smoking, diabetes, and hypertension; socioeconomic status; and sun-related skin damage. Main outcome measures Nuclear cataracts were identified, and their severity was graded by comparing photographs of the patients' eyes with 4 standard photographs; cortical and posterior subcapsular cataracts were graded by estimating the percentage of the lens covered by opacity. Relative-prevalence (RP) ratios were calculated for each type of cataract. Main results The rates of posterior subcapsular, cortical, and nuclear cataracts were 6%, 24%, and 19%, respectively. 11% of participants had used inhaled corticosteroids. The use of inhaled corticosteroids at any time was associated with increased prevalence of nuclear cataracts (RP 1.5,95% CI 1.2 to 1.9) and posterior subcapsular cataracts (RP 1.9, CI 1.3 to 2.8). Higher cumulative lifetime doses of beclomethasone were associated with increased prevalence of posterior subcapsular cataracts. For a lifetime dose of beclomethasone A 2 000 mg among current users, the RP for posterior subcap-sular cataracts was 5.5 (CI 2.3 to 13.0, P for trend < 0.001). The prevalence of nuclear cataracts was also greater at that dose of beclomethasone (RP 4.0, CI 1.8 to 9.3). An increased prevalence of cortical cataracts was seen only with current use of inhaled corticpsteroids (RP 1.4, CI 1.1 to 1.7). Adjustment for risk factors, including systemic corticosteroid use, did not affect the strength of the association between inhaled corticosteroid use and the presence of posterior subcapsular cataracts (odds ratio for lifetime dose of beclomethasone a 2000 mg 10.0, CI 3.3 to 33.2, P for trend < 0.001). Conclusion Use of inhaled corticosteroids was associated with increased risk for the development of nuclear and posterior subcapsular cataracts.

During a prospective study of the ontogeny of the mucosal immune system using saliva, one subject acquired a selective IgA deficiency at 3 years 6 months of age. Prior to this time the infant had normal ontogeny patterns for salivary immunoglobulins and the salivary IgA was confirmed to be dimeric IgA containing secretory component. Two respiratory tract infections at 3 years 4 months and 3 years 5 months were reported prior to the collection of a saliva sample which was deficient in IgA. All subsequent saliva collections remained IgA deficient. Serum and saliva collected at 11 years of age confirmed persistent IgA deficiency. There was a family history of organ-specific autoimmune disease. The prospectively collected data indicate in this subject that the IgA deficiency was not congenital, but was acquired closely associated with two episodes of respiratory tract infections, against a genetic background of disturbed immune regulation.

The new International Union Against Tuberculosis (IUAT) bronchial symptoms questionnaire was completed by 827 subjects participating in a prospective study of respiratory symptoms and lung function in aluminum smelter workers. A modified Medical Research Council (MRC) questionnaire was also administered. Bronchial reactivity (BR) was measured in 809 subjects by metha-choline challenge using a rapid method. Factor analysis demonstrated sensible clustering of responses to items unqiue to the new questionnaire such as nocturnal, spontaneous, and postexertional dyspnea, dust-induced dyspnea and tightness, and breathing difficulty. Responses to IUAT questions concerning past asthma, wheeze, chest tightness, morning cough and sputum, and asthma medication agreed well with corresponding items from the MRC questionnaire. Questions concerning asthma, medication, dust-induced, nocturnal, and spontaneous dyspnea, chest tightness, wheeze, nocturnal cough, postex-ertional dyspnea and breathing difficulty also had high validity against the criterion of concurrently measured bronchial reactivity. It is concluded that the IUAT questionnaire is a valid asthma questionnaire. © 1991 Informa UK Ltd All rights reserved: reproduction in whole or part not permitted.

The evidence concerning a relationship between work in the aluminum industry and lung disease has been reviewed using epidemiologic criteria. Adequate data on environmental exposure are rarely presented. Case series on aluminum potroom workers over the past 50 years have identified an asthmalike syndrome that appears to be due to an irritant rather than an allergic mechanism. These studies have been supported by evidence of within shift variability of measures of lung function. However, to date, there is inadequate evidence to resolve the question of whether potroom exposure initiates asthma or merely precipitates asthmalike symptoms in a predisposed individual. Cross-sectional studies have demonstrated evidence of reduced lung function, consistent with chronic airflow limitation, in exposed aluminum smelter workers compared to unexposed control subjects. Cigarette smoking, the major potential confounding variable, has been measured and accounted for in multivariate analyses. To date, evidence is lacking from longitudinal studies about the development of disabling chronic obstructive lung disease. Exposure to coal tar pitch volatiles in the production and consumption of anodes has biologic plausibility for an association of lung cancer with work in an aluminum smelter. Although retrospective mortality studies have failed to account for the probable high prevalence of smoking in blue collar workers, the relative risk of lung cancer is very low if present at all. Pulmonary fibrosis has not been shown to be a significant problem in aluminum smelter workers. Future research in the aluminum industry needs to concentrate on longitudinal studies, preferably with an inception cohort for the investigation of potroom asthma.

A trial with a trivalent influenza subunit vaccine prepared with sodium deoxycholate was carried out in 88 volunteers between May and November 1981. Each haemagglutinin antigen was present at 7 µg per dose. Fourfold or greater haemagglutination inhibition antibody (HI) responses to the H1N1 virus A/Brazil/11/78 occurred in 70% of the volunteers following a single dose. For the H3N2 virus A/Bangkok/1/79 and B/Singapore/222/79 these figures were 52 and 11%, respectively. No increase in the antibody titre was noted to any of the antigens following a second vaccination dose. Antibody levels remained relatively constant six months after vaccination. A response to B/Singapore/222/79, comparable with the HI response for the influenza A antigens, was noted when serum titres were estimated by a plaque reduction procedure. No neuraminidase inhibition antibody could be detected in response to either A/Brazil/11/78 or A/Bangkok/1/79. No reactions specifically attributable to the vaccine occurred after either injection. A lower HI response to A/Brazil/11/78 was noted in volunteers 52 years of age and older, who also showed less evidence of earlier priming to this virus. Levels of nasal wash neutralizing antibodies to A/Brazil/11/78 were proportional to those detected in sera by HI tests, but were present in smaller amounts. © 1984.
