This is a randomised, cross-over study comprised of 6 periods in healthy subjects.Subjects will receive Regimens A, B and C in a randomised crossover manner in the fed state, followed by Regimens D, E and F in a randomised crossover manner, in the fasted or fed state, as applicable.
This study will evaluate the long-term safety and tolerability of VX-445 in triple combination (TC) with tezacaftor (TEZ) and ivacaftor (IVA) in subjects with cystic fibrosis (CF) who are homozygous or heterozygous for the F508del mutation
This study will evaluate the efficacy of VX-445 in triple combination (TC) with tezacaftor (TEZ) and ivacaftor (IVA) in subjects with cystic fibrosis (CF) who are homozygous for the F508del mutation (F/F)
This study will evaluate the efficacy of VX-445 in triple combination (TC) with tezacaftor (TEZ) and ivacaftor (IVA) in subjects with cystic fibrosis (CF) who are heterozygous for F508del and a minimal function mutation (F/MF subjects).
Introduction: In recent years, since the discovery of the cystic fibrosis (CF) transmembrane conductance regulator gene in human skeletal muscle, there appears to be growing interest in the measurement of muscle function in CF. One of the most used test in other chronic pulmonary diseases is the Sit-to-Stand test (STS) which consists of simply getting up from a chair. Although the main result of the STS test is the time developed during the task, the velocity and power generated during the task are considered very important variables to detect the functional decline. However, from our knowledge, no study has previously analyzed the differences in time, velocity and muscle power developed during the STS test in patients with CF and their respective healthy controls. Objectives: To compare the values gained from handgrip strength, walking speed and STS test (time, velocity, and muscle power) in a group of patients with CF and their respective healthy controls, and to analyze if these differences (if any) are associated with lung function in patients with CF. Methods: Cross-sectional study with a sample of 32 participants (16 patients diagnosed with CF and 16 healthy subjects) between 18-65 years old. The STS test will be measured through slow-motion video recording with a smartphone device (240 images per second) which will report the time, velocity and power generated during the test. Walking speed and handgrip strength will be also measured. Additionally, the relationship between the variables obtained during the test and the lung function of patients with CF will be analized.
It is estimated that one in every 3,600 children in Canada has cystic fibrosis (CF). CF is a genetic disease that affects the glands that produce mucus and sweat. In CF, mucus production increases and the mucus becomes thick and sticky. This can block the airways, making it difficult to breathe. Mucus production also causes bacteria to grow, which can lead to infections in the lungs. Individuals with CF suffer from shortness of breath, wheezing, cough, and poor exercise capacity. There are limited treatment options to reduce shortness of breath in these individuals. Some medications known as bronchodilators are commonly prescribed to reduce breathlessness in patients with CF. These drugs help open the airways making it easier to breathe. Unfortunately, there is limited scientific proof that these drugs can reduce shortness of breath and improve exercise capacity in patients with CF. As a result, some experts have recommended that these drugs should not be prescribed for patients with CF. The purpose of this study is to examine the effects of a bronchodilator on shortness of breath, exercise performance, and breathing responses compared to a placebo drug in adults with CF.
The Effectiveness of the Jamboxx Respiratory Therapy Device in Treatment of Patients with Decreased Respiratory Function is a proposal for investigation of the application of gaming to improving respiratory health. The Jamboxx device combines gaming with traditional incentive spirometry to provide users with a fun experience to keep them engaged in their respiratory therapy routine. The device allows users to play a series of mini-games that walk them through their routines. The Jamboxx also records airflow and lung parameters with an external mouthpiece attachment to provide users with real time feedback, and helps to assess increases or decreases in relative lung function over time. The Jamboxx has the potential to significantly impact the field of respiratory therapy by being one of the first gaming devices for patient therapy, and the first respiratory therapy gaming device that is accessible to users with limited mobility. Jamboxx provides a fun and engaging, low cost alternative to the traditional therapy techniques used and aims to improve patient compliance. This study addresses the ongoing challenge of clearing the burden of bronchial secretions resulting from cystic fibrosis. These patients are dependent upon mechanical devices to help clear secretions. A device autonomous means for clearing secretions is well defined in the literature (autogenic drainage) but is difficult to learn. This study proposes to teach cystic fibrosis patients to master autogenic drainage, and seeks to determine at what age it can be taught. As it would be expected that gaming could easily teach adults this procedure, the study will include children for whom learning autogenic drainage based upon conceptualization would be expected to be very difficult.
The aim of this study is to evaluate the effects of a partially supervised exercise program on different aspects of physical fitness, despite VO2peak, lung function, quality of life and sleep quality in children, adolescents and adults with Cystic Fibrosis.
This is an 2-part study. Part 1 will assess the safety, tolerability and pharmacokinetics of single doses of FDL176 with and without co-administration of FDL169. Part 2 will assess the safety, tolerability and pharmacokinetics of repeated doses of FDL176 with and without co-administration of FDL169 .
Although the pathophysiology of meconium obstruction of prematurity (MOP) is not clear, it is known that the decrease of the intestinal peristalsis due to decreased intestinal perfusion during antenatal or perinatal period. Recently, the level of citrulline has been used as an index of function and injury of the small intestine State. This study aimed to evaluate citrulline level of cord blood as a marker for early detection and observe changes in intestinal blood flow in MOP patient. And We aimed to confirm the efficacy of the AT/ET ratio (ratio of the pulmonary artery time-to-peak velocity interval to the right ventricular ejection time) of the prenatal pulmonary artery as a noninvasive predictor of neonatal respiratory distress syndrome.
