Morphine for Dyspnea in Pulmonary Fibrosis
"Determination of the effectiveness of nebulized morphine in the treatment of dyspnea in patients with advanced idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis"
RHEology of the Pulmonary MUcus
Patients for whom bronchial mucus collection has been performed as part of the treatment will be offered the opportunity to participate in the study. - A rheology measurement will be carried out shortly after the collection of fresh bronchial mucus samples. - Another part will be done on frozen bronchial mucus samples
Skeletal Muscle Function in Interstitial Lung Disease
Dyspnea (i.e. breathlessness) and exercise intolerance are common symptoms for patients with interstitial lung disease (ILD), yet it is not known why. It has been suggested that muscle dysfunction may contribute to dyspnea and exercise intolerance in ILD. Our study aims to: i) examine differences in the structure and function of the leg muscles in ILD patients, ii) determine if leg muscle fatigue contributes to dyspnea and exercise limitation in patients with ILD, and iii) determine the effects of breathing extra oxygen on leg muscle fatigue, as well as ability to exercise in ILD patients.
To Evaluate the Effect of Food on the the Pharmacokinetics and Safety After Oral DWN12088 Administration in Healthy Adult Volunteers
The pharmacokinetics (PK) and safety of single oral dose of DWN12088 in healthy adults will be compared and assessed on an empty stomach, after high-fat meal, or 2 hours after high-fat meal.
Use of Capnography for the Follow-up of Cystic Fibrosis Children
The respiratory system involvement in cystic fibrosis(CF) influences the prognosis and course of disease. Respiratory assessment is based on spirometry, but its main parameter, the maximal expiratory volume in the first second (FEV1), does not reflect the initial peripheral impairment of airways. Another pulmonary function test (PFT) validated for CF children follow-up is measurement of "gas trapping", reflecting ventilation inhomogeneity and incipient airways impairment. "Gas trapping" can be obtained by lung volume measurement (functional residual capacity, FRC) by plethysmography and helium dilution technique, but these tests are...
Vaccination of Ex-acute COVID-19 Patients With Fibrosing Lung Syndrome at Discharge
Methodology: This is a controlled, randomized, multicenter open-label Phase Ib clinical exploratory trial in patients with fibrosing interstitial lung disease secondary to SARS-CoV-2 infection. Patients who give informed consent will be screened for enrolment in the study. Patients that meet the eligibility criteria will be enrolled and randomly allocated in the control arm (best standard of care) or the experimental arm (best standard of care plus IN01 vaccination). The patients enrolled in the control arm of the study will receive standard of care. The primary endpoint is safety, measured by the Frequency and...
An Expanded Access Program in Belgium to Provide Nintedanib to People With Lung Diseases Called Non-IPF ILDs Who Have no Alternative Treatment Options
This Expanded Access Program in Belgium is open to people with different lung diseases. This program provides a medicine called nintedanib to people who have no alternative treatment options. They can participate if they have a type of lung disease called non-IPF ILDs (chronic fibrosing interstitial lung diseases with a progressive phenotype other than idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis). Participants take 2 capsules of nintedanib a day. The treating physician checks the health of the participants and notes health problems that could have been caused by nintedanib. Participants receive nintedanib as long as they benefit or until...
Infusion of Allogeneic Mesenchymal Stem Cells in Patients With Diffuse Cutaneous Systemic Sclerosis With Refractory Pulmonary Involvement
Progressive SSc is an entity with limited therapeutic alternatives and with asurvival rate of less than 45% in the first 3 to 5 years. The disease causessevere limitation in quality of life ranging from functional limitation to depression. Up to 20% of patients will be refractory to conventional treatment with diseasemodifying anti-rheumatic drugs (DMARDs) and cyclophosphamide therapy.This favors the progression to visceral involvement including gastrointestinal,lung and pulmonary hypertension. The latter being a poor prognostic factor,increases mortality in this group of patients and drastically affects their qualityof life. For...
