Studying the airway microenvironment in patients undergoing surgical and bronchoscopic interventions for COPD
Studying the microbiome of the lung in patients treated with endobronchial lung volume reduction coils for emphysema
A single arm pilot study of lung volume reduction in severe emphysema using bronchoscopic autologous blood instillation in combination with intra-bronchial valves.
The aim of this study is to test whether therapies in alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency-associated lung disease improve endothelial function, measured by pulmonary microvascular blood flow on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and with apoptotic endothelial microparticles.
The purpose of this observational study is to investigate the efficacy of 9 mm intrabronchial valve treatment in patients with heterogeneous emphysema and to gain further insights and experience on the treatment with this valve size.
Regular physical activity has been found to be important in maintaining health and well-being in people with COPD. The purpose of this study is to test new technology and health coaching aimed to help people with COPD become more physically active in their daily lives.
Endoscopic lung volume reduction coil treatment is a treatment option for selected patients with severe emphysema. In the advanced stages, emphysema may lead to chronic hypercapnic respiratory failure. In this observational study the safety and efficacy of endoscopic lung volume reduction coil treatment in patients with chronic hypercapnic respiratory failure is evaluated.
The Generating Engagement in Network Involvement (GENIE) Tool is designed to support people to find and join social activities in their own neighbourhoods. Evidence has shown that people with more social support have increased ability to manage long term conditions and ill health. Patients with Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease (COPD) have difficulty breathing every day; this is both tiring and makes its difficult to socialise as they did prior to having their condition. COPD can be managed with medicines, and exercise, but will never be cured, so it is considered a 'long term condition.' This study plans to use a social mapping tool (GENIE) with COPD patients that are already part of the community service. The aim of the study is to increase opportunities to socialise and get day to day support outside of the health service. Patients will be offered either the tool, or usual care. If the study is successful then use of health care may reduce in the COPD patients already using the COPD service.
This is a multicenter, prospective study designed to evaluate performance of the SVS in the REACH SVS control patients. The study is expected to enroll up to 20 patients at up to 12 sites with up to 6 patients per site.
In patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) lifestyles with lower physical activity levels have been shown to increase the risk of hospital admissions and shorten survival rates. An established process in increasing activity levels is to undergo pulmonary rehabilitation classes. The investigators wish to identify whether the use of activity monitors,which will provide feedback on activity levels, will increase the physical activity levels of patients with COPD outside of the supervised pulmonary rehabilitation sessions.
