Evaluation of Post-covid 19 Patients Who Receive Ozonetheraphy With Thorax CT
It is known that enhances wound healing by oxidative stress and supports immune system besides it is cheap and has not any side effects. Aim of the study is to prevent pulmonary fibrosis by using ozone therapy as a supportive therapy on the patients who have pneumonia and ground glass opacity on thorax CT both in ICU and wards. Patients will follow for a year.
Evaluation of Salt Status in Patients With Cystic Fibrosis
The results of the annual check-up will be collected to evaluate the best urinary marker for fractional sodium excretion and salt status will be correlated to clinical outcome measures.
Evaluation of the Serum Soluble Fractalkine as a Biomarker of Pulmonary Fibrosis in Systemic Sclerosis
Systemic Scleroderma (SCS) is an autoimmune disease characterized by vascular involvement, a dysimmune condition, cutaneous and visceral fibrosis. Interstitial lung disease (ILD) affects 75% of SSc patients and is the leading cause of death in SSc. No diagnostic or prognostic biomarkers of SSc-associated ILD have been validated to date. The search for such a serum biomarker is essential to assess the severity of these patients and to help the therapeutic management. We have shown that soluble fractalkine is elevated in SSc patients, especially in SSc patients with ILD. The fractalkine is both an endothelial adhesion molecule and a...
Evolution of Lung 18FDG Uptake in Patients With Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis and Receiving Pirfenidone
Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a rare and fatal lung disease characterized by unpredictable changes with variable kinetics of progression. Changes in pulmonary function (FVC, DLCO) assessed at the time of diagnosis, or decline in pulmonary function within 12 months after diagnosis, are the best predictors of survival, but poorly predicted disease activity and evolution. 18FDG positron emission tomography (18FDG PETscan) provides the ability to quantify cell metabolism in vivo and non-invasively using a labeled non-metabolizable substrate. Several parameters can be measured in an automated and reproducible way, such as the...
Examination of Pirfenidone (Esbriet®) Therapy in Coal Workers' Pneumoconiosis With Pulmonary Fibrosis
Examination of pirfenidone (Esbriet®) therapy in coal workers' pneumoconiosis (black lung) with pulmonary fibrosis (scarring of the lung).
Exhaled Breath Analysis Using eNose Technology as a Biomarker for Diagnosis and Disease Progression in Fibrotic ILD
The ILDnose study a multinational, multicenter, prospective, longitudinal study in outpatients with pulmonary fibrosis. The aim is to assess the accuracy of eNose technology as diagnostic tool for diagnosis and differentiation between the most prevalent fibrotic interstitial lung diseases. The value of eNose as biomarker for disease progression and response to treatment is also assessed. Besides, validity of several questionnaires for pulmonary fibrosis is investigated.
Explanted Lung Tissues With Pulmonary Fibrosis
The goal of this study is to use the tissues from the explanted lungs in order to better study the cause of pulmonary fibrosis at a cellular level.
Exploring the Utility of Hyperpolarized 129Xe MRI in Healthy Volunteers and Patients With Lung Disease
This is a single centre exploratory study that aims to apply hyperpolarized xenon-129 (129Xe) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) methods and measurements in individual patients with and without lung disease to better understand lung structure and function and evaluate response to therapy delivered as a part of clinical care.
Families-At-risk for Interstitial Lung Disease Study
The interstitial lung diseases (ILDs) are a family of closely related lung conditions characterized by alveolar inflammation, injury, and fibrosis not due to infection or neoplasia. While previously considered to be rare, a recent nationwide study found that idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), a fibrotic ILD with a median survival of only 3.8 years, affects nearly 0.5% of older adults in the U.S. While pirfenidone and nintedanib slow the progression of IPF, neither reverses fibrosis nor prevents progression of the disease,and no studies to date have tested interventions that prevent the development of fibrotic ILDs.
Fibroblast Specific Inhibition of LOXL2 and TGFbeta1 Signaling in Patients With Pulmonary Fibrosis.
This is a two part study. In the first part, the pharmacokinetic profile of Epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) in normal human volunteers given a single oral dose will be determined to set the dose for the second part of the study. In the second part of this study, lung biopsy fragments and urine samples from patients with interstitial lung disease treated with EGCG will be evaluated in biochemical assays and compared to samples from untreated control patients.
