Roles of Inflammatory Biomarkers in Exhaled Breath Condensates in Respiratory Clinical Fields
Yong Jun Choi, Min Jae Lee, Min Kwang Byun, et al.
Tuberc Respir Dis. 2024;87(1):65-79.   Published online October 12, 2023
Background: Exhaled condensates contain inflammatory biomarkers; however, their roles in the clinical field have been under-investigated. Methods: We prospectively enrolled subjects admitted to pulmonology clinics. We collected exhaled breath condensates (EBC) and analysed the levels of six and 12 biomarkers using conventional and multiplex enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay, respectively. Results: Among the 123 subjects, healthy controls constituted the largest group (81 participants; 65.9%),...

Clinical Utility of Chest Sonography in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease Patients Focusing on Diaphragmatic Measurements
Hend M. Esmaeel, Kamal A. Atta, Safiya khalaf, et al.
Tuberc Respir Dis. 2024;87(1):80-90.   Published online November 29, 2023
Background: There are many methods of evaluating diaphragmatic function, including trans-diaphragmatic pressure measurements, which are considered the key rule of diagnosis. We studied the clinical usefulness of chest ultrasonography in evaluating stable chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patients and those in exacerbation, focusing on diaphragmatic measurements and their correlation with spirometry and other clinical parameters. Methods: In a prospective case-control study,...

Diagnostic Accuracy of Lactate Dehydrogenase/Adenosine Deaminase Ratio in Differentiating Tuberculous and Parapneumonic Effusions: A Systematic Review
Larry Ellee Nyanti, Muhammad Aklil Abd Rahim, Nai-Chien Huan
Tuberc Respir Dis. 2024;87(1):91-99.   Published online September 20, 2023
Background: Tuberculous pleural effusion (TPE) and parapneumonic effusion (PPE) are often difficult to differentiate owing to the overlapping clinical features. Observational studies demonstrate that the ratio of lactate dehydrogenase to adenosine deaminase (LDH/ADA) is lower in TPE compared to PPE, but integrated analysis is warranted. Methods: We conducted a systematic review to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of the LDH/ADA ratio in...

Perception of Long-Term Oxygen Therapy for Chronic Lung Diseases May Affect Poor Adherence in Korea
Hyo Jin Kim, Hongyeul Lee, Ji Young Yang, et al.
Tuberc Respir Dis. 2024;87(1):100-114.   Published online November 29, 2023
Background: Long-term oxygen therapy (LTOT) improves the survival of patients with hypoxemia due to chronic respiratory diseases. The clinical outcomes of LTOT are strongly associated with patient adherence. To improve the adherence of patients, physicians have focused on the efficacy of LTOT. However, poor adherence may stem from patients’ perceptions of LTOT. Herein we evaluated patients’ perceptions of LTOT affecting...
