The Latest from the AJRCCM & AJRCMB
March 1, 2012 AJRCCM
The March 1 American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care features a concise clinical review on sedation and analgesia in the mechanically ventilated patient, as well as a pulmonary perspective on the Parker B. Francis Fellowship Program: Analysis of 31 years of career development support.
This issue of the journal also features original research on the mechanistic role for type III IFN-λ1 in asthma exacerbations mediated by human rhinoviruses; depressive symptoms and impaired physical function after acute lung injury: a 2-year longitudinal study; statins and pulmonary fibrosis: The potential role of NLRP3 inflammasome activation; inhaled glucocorticoids during pregnancy and offspring pediatric diseases: a national cohort study; and prognostic factors of 634 HIV-negative patients with Mycobacterium avium complex lung disease.
This issue also includes an installment of “Beyond the Blue: What Fellows Are Reading in Other Journals,” in which pulmonary fellows at the University of Iowa offer their reading recommendations.
March 15, 2012 AJRCCM
The March 15 issue of the journal features a concise clinical review on the acquisition and processing of endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration specimens in the era of targeted lung cancer chemotherapy, as well as a critical care perspective on the use of nonphysician providers in adult intensive care units.
This issue of the journal also features original research on how a large subgroup of mild-to-moderate asthma is persistently non-eosinophilic; automatic control of pressure support for ventilator weaning in surgical intensive care patients; long-term inhaled dry powder mannitol in cystic fibrosis: an international randomized study; a comparison between two strategies for monitoring hepatic function during antituberculous therapy; and lung 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose PET for diagnosis and monitoring of pulmonary arterial hypertension.
This issue also includes an installment of “Beyond the Blue: What Fellows Are Reading in Other Journals,” in which pulmonary fellows from Winthrop University Hospital offer their reading recommendations.

March 2012 AJRCMB
The March 2012 issue of the American Journal of Respiratory Cell and Molecular Biology features a perspective on the world of lung-specific transgenic mice. The issue also includes original research articles that focus on the involvement of creatine kinase B in cigarette smoke–induced-bronchial epithelial cell senescence; hypoxia regulation of pulmonary vascular smooth muscle cyclic guanosine monophosphate-dependent kinase by the ubiquitin conjugating system; regulation of alveolar epithelial Na+ channels by ERK1/2 in chlorine-breathing mice; high-throughput library screening identifies two novel NQO1 inducers in human lung cells; MEK-ERK pathway modulation ameliorates pulmonary fibrosis associated with epidermal growth factor receptor activation; and effects of experimental asthma on inflammation and lung mechanics in sickle cell mice.
