Detection of Early Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis
The purpose of the study is to determine if miR200 family may serve as a biomarker of IPF.
Detection of Integrin avb6 in Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis and Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis Using PET/CT
Detection of Integrin avb6 in Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis and Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis with [18F]FP-R01-MG-F2 PET/CT
Detection of Unsuspected Small Airways Obstruction in Cystic Fibrosis
Goal is to physiologically detect unsuspected small airways obstruction in children and adults with treated heterozygous and homozygous cystic fibrosis. Unsuspected refers to normal routine pre bronchodilator spirometry including normal FEV1(L), FVC (L). and FEV1/FVC%. This is a retrospective study.
Developing Optimal Parameters for Hyperpolarized Noble Gas and Inert Fluorinated Gas MRI of Lung Disorders
The goal of this research is to optimize the MRI system to obtain ideal lung images using Hyperpolarized (HP) Noble and Inert Fluorinated Gases as contrast agents. Lung coils tuned to the frequencies of these gases will be used. This study will take place at TBRHSC in the Cardiorespiratory Department and in the Research MRI facility.
Early Detection of Acute Exacerbation in Patients With Idiopathic Lung Fibrosis - a Pilot Study
Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a chronic disease, leading to poor lung function with a median survival of 2-3 years. Acute exacerbation of idiopathic IPF is a complication associated with a mortality rate > 50%. So far, the appearance of an acute exacerbation is unpredictable. Worsening of the IPF accompanies with a decrease of the FVC-value, the lung capacity. So far, studies are missing investigating the correlation between a decrease of the FVC-value and emerging acute exacerbations. Therefore, this study uses daily home spirometry to investigate that correlation. With this study the investigators hope to determine acute ...
Early Diagnosis of Pulmonary Fibrosis - Diagnostic Delay
Patients with newly diagnosed IPF are investigated for the diagnostic delay before a diagnosis of IPF is made.
Early Diagnosis of Pulmonary Fibrosis - Use of Biomarkers in Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis
All incident cases of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) in Denmark will be offered inclusion during a 5 year period and followed up for up to 5 years with measurements of blood biomarkers and measurements of disease progression.
Efficacy and Safety of Nintedanib in the Treatment of Pulmonary Fibrosis in Patients With Moderate to Severe COVID -19
This center intends to conduct a single-center, randomized, placebo-controlled study to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of Nintedanib ethanesulfonate soft capsule in the treatment of pulmonary fibrosis in patients with moderate to severe COVID-19.
Efficacy, Safety and Tolerability of NP-120 on Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis and Its Associated Cough
NP-120 (Ifenprodil) has been shown to mediate anti-inflammatory responses and reduce pulmonary fibrosis in a murine model of Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF). In addition, NP-120 significantly reduced both cough frequency and onset in a guinea pig tussive model. The purpose of this proof-of-concept trial is to determine the efficacy of NP-120 in the treatment of IPF and its associated cough.
Enhancing Physical Activity in Patients With Interstitial Lung Disease
The level of physical activity (PA) has been shown to be an important predictor for morbidity and mortality in patients with chronic respiratory diseases such as COPD and more recently Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis. Physical inactivity is a common feature of patients with chronic respiratory diseases. Whereas pulmonary rehabilitation is known to result in benefits in exercise capacity, symptoms and quality of life, these gains will not automatically translate into increases in physical activity. Therefore, the present study aims to investigate the effect of a physical activity coaching program on the physical activity level of patients with...
