Has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of moderateto-severe PCP pneumonia in people with compromised immune systems.(Neutrexin)
trimetrexate (Neutrexin) Drug description
Trimetrexate has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of moderate-to-severe PCP pneumonia in people with compromised immune systems. Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia, commonly referred to as PCP, can affect the lungs as well as other parts of the body, including the skin and internal organs. People who are at the greatest risk of contracting this type of pneumonia are those who have less than 200 T4 cells. Symptoms of PCP include shortness of breath, dry cough, and fever. Trimetrexate is an alternative for people that can't take other approved treatments like TMP/SMX . It can also be used if the PCP pneumonia doesn't get better with the standard treatments. Due to very serious and potentially life-threatening side-effects of this drug, leucovorin must be co-administered for at least 72 hours after the last dose. Side effects
Trimetrexate is usually given at a dose of 45 mg/m2 once daily by intravenous infusion over 60-90 minutes. Leucovorin must be given daily during trimetrexate treatment and for 72 hours afterward. Leucovorin may be given intravenously at a dose of 20 mg/m2 over 5-10 minutes every 6 hours or orally as 4 doses of 20 mg/m2 spaced evenly throughout the day. How long it may take to work
The recommended course of therapy is 21 days of trimetrexate and 24 days of leucovorin.

Medical News Archive Yet Another Reason to Put That Cigarette Down By Peggy Peck WebMD Medical News Archive March 8, 2000 (Cleveland) Cigarette smoking is a well-known risk factor for cancer and heart disease, and a new study from the CDC reports that cigarettes are also the No. 1 cause of an infection that can cause severe pneumonia or meningitis. Cigarettes, the CDC researchers say, increase the risk of this infection by four times for smokers and more than double the risk to nonsmokers exposed to secondhand smoke. The study is reported in this week's issue of The New England Journal of Medicine. Pneumococcal infections are caused by a bacteria called Streptococcus pneumoniae. They are the leading cause of pneumonia in the U.S. "The more the person smokes, the greater the risk, both in terms of cigarettes per day and years smoking," says researcher Anne Schuchat, MD, chief of the CDC's Respiratory Disease Branch. The risk remains high for 10 years after a person quits, then drops to the risk of nonsmokers, she says. This is good news because it means "this is not a permanent effect of smoking," she says. The CDC estimates that if "the number of people who smoke [were reduced] by just 10%, we could prevent about 4,000 cases of invasive pneumococcal infections pneumonia, bacteremia [infection in the blood], or meningitis each year," Schuchat says.

Patient Notes
Recognizing pneumonia
VOL 103 / NO 4 / APRIL 1999 / POSTGRADUATE MEDICINE Pneumonia is an infection or inflammation of the smallest air passages in the lungs. Infection can be caused by any of dozens of bacteria, viruses, and fungal organisms. Inflammation can result from inhaling dust, chemicals, food, or vomit. Pneumonia can be a very dangerous disease if it is not recognized and treated early. When you have pneumonia, the tiny air sacs in your lungs (alveoli) fill with pus and other liquid. Oxygen then can't reach your blood. If your blood contains too little oxygen, your body's cells can't work properly and you become ill. There are several different kinds of pneumonia, but bacterial, viral, and a less typical type called mycoplasmal pneumonia are the most common. The viruses and bacteria that cause pneumonia are contagious and are usually found in fluid from the mouth or nose of an infected person. Illness can spread through exposure to coughs and sneezes, shared drinking glasses and eating utensils, and used tissues or handkerchiefs. Bacterial pneumonia This is the most serious type of pneumonia and can attack anyonefrom infants to the very old. People with respiratory disease and weakened immune systems are at greatest risk.

By Mary Ann Hellinghausen Atlanta . People who smoke cigarettes or breathe secondhand smoke are at a higher risk for contracting pneumonia, a bloodstream infection, or meningitis, according to a study by the national Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The study, published in the March 9 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine , found that the risk of infection caused by Streptococcus pneumoniae , the virus that causes pneumonia, was four times higher for cigarette smokers and two-and-a-half times higher for those exposed to secondhand smoke. "This study documents yet another example of an adverse health event linked to active and passive smoking,’’ said Michael Eriksen, MD, director of the CDC’s Office on Smoking and Health. "Reducing the incidence of pneumococcal disease is yet another reason to continue to support public health programs to reduce smoking and exposure to secondhand smoke." Researchers worked with microbiology labs in Atlanta, Baltimore, and Toronto to identify all cases of invasive pneumococcal infection in adults ages 18 to 64 and selected a sample of patients for further study. Through telephone interviews with those patients and randomly selected healthy residents of the same age, the researchers discovered cigarette smoking was the strongest risk factor for pneumococcal infection in adults with normal immune systems.

PCP is the most serious infection among children with HIV. It can be fatal. PCP can be prevented and treated. TMP-SMX, also known as Bactrim, Septra,
or Cotrim*, is the best medicine for
preventing and treating PCP. Early diagnosis and treatment of HIV in pregnant women can help prevent HIV and PCP in their children. What is PCP? Pneumocystis carinii (NEW-mo-SIS-tis CA-RIN- nee-eye) pneumonia, or "PCP," is a severe illness that adults and children with HIV or AIDS may get. It is caused by a germ called Pneumocystis carinii. Most children infected with this germ don’t get pneumonia because their immune systems are normal. Children whose immune systems are badly damaged by HIV can get PCP. Children with HIV are less likely to get PCP today than in earlier years. However, PCP is still the most common serious infection among children with AIDS in the United States. How do I know if my child has PCP?

Bronchiolitis obliterans organizing pneumonia (BOOP) was described in 1985 as a distinct entity, with different clinical, radiographic, and prognostic features than the airway disorder obliterative bronchiolitis and the interstitial fibrotic lung disorder usual interstitial pneumonia/idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (UIP/IPF). BOOP is characterized by polyploid endobronchial connective tissue masses composed of myxoid fibroblastic tissue resembling granulation tissue filling the lumens of terminal and respiratory bronchioles and extending in a continuous fashion into alveolar ducts and alveoli, representing an organizing pneumonia ( Figure 1 Other histological features include central clusters of mononuclear inflammatory cells possibly found in the intraluminal polyps (the polyps appear to float freely within a bronchiole or are focally attached to the wall), chronic inflammation in the walls of the surrounding alveoli with reactive type II cells, increased foamy macrophages in the alveoli, and preserved lung architecture.

pneumonia. Definition. pneumonia is an infection of the lung that can be caused by nearly any class of organism known to cause human infections.
Encyclopedia Index P Home Encyclopedia Encyclopedia Index P
Pneumonia is an infection of the lung that can be caused by nearly any class of organism known to cause human infections. These include bacteria, amoebae, viruses, fungi, and parasites. In the United States, pneumonia is the sixth most common disease leading to death; 2 million Americans develop pneumonia each year, and 40,000-70,000 die from it. Pneumonia is also the most common fatal infection acquired by already hospitalized patients. In developing countries, pneumonia ties with diarrhea as the most common cause of death. Even in nonfatal cases, pneumonia is a significant economic burden on the health care system. One study estimates that people in the American workforce who develop pneumonia cost employers five times as much in health care as the average worker. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), however, the number of deaths from pneumonia in the United States has declined slightly since 2001. Description Anatomy of the lung To better understand pneumonia, it is important to understand the basic anatomic features of the respiratory system. The human respiratory system begins at the nose and mouth, where air is breathed in (inspired) and out (expired). The air tube extending from the nose is called the nasopharynx. The tube carrying air breathed in through the mouth is called the oropharynx. The nasopharynx and the oropharynx merge into the larynx. The oropharynx also carries swallowed substances, including food, water, and salivary secretion, which must pass into the esophagus and then the stomach. The larynx is protected by a trap door called the epiglottis. The epiglottis prevents substances that have been swallowed, as well as substances that have been regurgitated (thrown up), from heading down into the larynx and toward the lungs.

Postgrad Med 2001;109(5):135-47 L egionnaires' disease is commonly thought of as an exotic cause of bacterial pneumonia. It was first recognized during an outbreak of pneumonia involving delegates attending the American Legion Convention at a Philadelphia hotel in 1976. Numerous outbreaks since then have been well publicized in the lay media, but it is less well known that legionnaires' disease is a relatively common cause of community-acquired pneumonia.

Encyclopedia Index P Home Encyclopedia Encyclopedia Index P Pneumocystis pneumonia
Pneumocystis pneumonia is a lung infection that occurs primarily in people with weakened immune systemsespecially people who are HIV-positive. The disease agent is an organism whose biological classification is still uncertain. Pneumocystis carinii was originally thought to be a one-celled organism (a protozoan), but more recent research suggests that it is a fungus. Although its life cycle is known to have three stages, its method of reproduction is not yet completely understood. The complete name of the disease is Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia, often shortened to PCP. PCP is also sometimes called pneumocystosis. Description Pneumonia as a general term refers to a severe lung inflammation. In pneumocystis pneumonia, this inflammation is caused by the growth of Pneumocystis carinii , a fungus-like organism that is widespread in the environment. PCP is ordinarily a rare disease, affecting only people with weakened immune systems. Many of these people are patients receiving drugs for organ transplants or cancer treatment.
