Dr. El Fiky’s expertise is related to clinical and basic research, US and global drug policy, development and regulatory affairs. He has regulatory, translational, and clinical experience from previous positions at the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), US National Institutes of Health (NIH), US academia, and non-US institutions. Currently, Dr. El Fiky is a full-time Medical Officer and Clinical Research Consultant at a global regulatory and clinical research consulting firm headquartered in the Washington DC metropolitan region. His current duties include medical safety surveillance, phramacovigilance, drug risk assessment/mitigation and regulatory oversight of clinical trials assessing safety and efficacy of novel drugs, vaccines and stem cell therapies towards infectious diseases, malignancies and autoimmune disorders within the continental United States and around the globe. Dr. El Fiky’s regulatory experience at the FDA involved authoring technical reports on comparative clinical effectiveness of investigational biologics in Phase I through III development stages applied for treatment of auto-immune diseases, including allergic disorders. His science policy duties focused on NIH-initiated global biomedical research policy towards autoimmune disorders, emerging pathogens, and global vaccine development initiatives. A multi-lingual naturalized US Citizen and a native of Egypt, he received his medical degree from Egypt’s University of Alexandria and Ph.D. in Experimental Pathology/Immunology from the University of California-Irvine. His clinical training in Egypt specialized in infection control and laboratory medicine particularly molecular identification of virulence factors of endemic vector- and blood-borne pathogens. Dr. El Fiky’s PhD thesis and postdoctoral research revealed a novel signaling mechanism for type I interferon and investigated molecular signaling mechanism of cytokines in cancer, inflammation, and allergic pathogenesis. After completing his medical training and ABMM-approved fellowship, he continued postdoctoral training at the NIH’s National Cancer Institute, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, and the FDA’s Office of Vaccine Research and Review. Dr. El Fiky co-authored several peer-reviewed publications in the fields of molecular medicine, immunology and public health in addition to a book chapter on clinical and regulatory applications of stem cell-based therapy. He was invited as a guest speaker at leading US universities including Stanford and Harvard Medical Schools as well as medical conferences in the United States, Egypt, South Korea, China and Italy. Dr. El Fiky was awarded the FDA’s Commissioner Citation Award and the University of California’s William Holcomb Award for Excellence in Biomedical Research. In 2016, The President of Egypt’s University of Alexandria appointed Dr. El Fiky an Adjunct Professor at the Faculty of Medicine. In recognition of his community service, Dr. El Fiky was previously appointed as a Commissioner in the Governor of Maryland’s Commission of American Middle Eastern Affairs and received the inaugural “Young Leadership Award” from the Egyptian American Association of California.

Bronchiolitis is the most common cause for lower respiratory tract infection during the first year of life, and accounts for majority of hospital admissions during this period. Between 2% to 3% of all infants are hospitalized in their first 12 months of life with bronchiolitis – in Wales this equates to nearly 1000 causing significant burden on the health care system. Although many viruses may cause the constellation of symptoms and signs that characterize bronchiolitis, 60-85% of cases are caused by respiratory syncytial virus (RSV). Supportive care is the mainstay of treatment, concentrating on fluid replacement, gentle suctioning of nasal secretions, prone position (if in hospital), oxygen therapy and respiratory support if necessary.

NICE have published guidance on bronchiolitis which highlights a number of investigations that are often performed (such as blood tests and chest X-rays) and treatments offered (such as bronchodilators or steroids) despite evidence of lack of benefit.1 A recent audit across Wales has highlighted marked variation in care and length of stay for infants admitted with bronchiolitis across Wales.

Thomas Ferkol, M.D. is the Alexis Hartmann Professor of Pediatrics, Professor of Cell Biology and Physiology at Washington University in St. Louis (St. Louis, Missouri), and past President of the American Thoracic Society, only the second pediatrician to hold that position in the 115-year history of the organization.

Dr. Ferkol received his medical degree from the Ohio State University College of Medicine, and was pediatric resident and chief resident at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Dr. Ferkol moved to Case Western Reserve University for fellowship training in pediatric pulmonology, and subsequently joined the pediatric faculty. Dr. Ferkol was recruited to Washington University School of Medicine eighteen years ago, where he is currently Director of the Division of Pediatric Allergy, Immunology, and Pulmonary Medicine, overseeing successful, multidisciplinary clinical and research programs at the Washington University School of Medicine. An American Lung Association Edward Livingston Trudeau Scholar and recipient of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation LeRoy Matthew’s Physician-Scientist Award, Dr. Ferkol’s research has largely focused on characterizing genetic and molecular factors that contribute to infection and inflammation in chronic suppurative respiratory diseases, including cystic fibrosis and primary ciliary dyskinesia, with nearly twenty-five years of continuous funding from the National Institutes of Health, as well as support from the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and March of Dimes. He has published over 160 original articles, scholarly reviews, and book chapters.
