The TELO-SCOPE Study: Attenuating Telomere Attrition With Danazol. Is There Scope to Dramatically Improve Health Outcomes for Adults and Children With Pulmonary Fibrosis
TELO-SCOPE is a national, multi-centre, double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomised (2:1) trial which will test the hypothesis that, compared to placebo, the addition of danazol to standard of care in pulmonary fibrosis associated with short telomeres is safe and will result in reduced telomere attrition.
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...
