NCT ID: NCT02935452 Not yet recruiting - COPD Clinical Trials

Implementing and Evaluating the Genie Tool in COPD

GeCop
Start date: November 2016
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

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.

NCT ID: NCT02914340 Recruiting - Emphysema Clinical Trials

REACH SVS Control Patient Cross-Over Study

Start date: September 2016
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

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.

NCT ID: NCT02895152 Recruiting - Clinical trials for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Activity Monitor Use in COPD Patients Undergoing Rehabilitation

Start date: August 2016
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

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.

NCT ID: NCT02879773 Recruiting - Clinical trials for Pulmonary Disease, Chronic Obstructive

Computed Tomography Assessment of Regional Ventilation (CURVE)

CURVE
Start date: February 2016
Phase: N/A
Study type: Observational

This study uses CT scans to assess airflow in the lung, the scan is quick, cheap and painless. The information from the scan may help doctors tell which patients are suitable to have surgery to cure early stage lung cancer. It may also help doctors tell which patients would benefit from surgery for emphysema and diagnose types of lung disease. The investigators will follow up patients who go through surgery to test how well the scan predicts the function of the lung after surgery. The investigators will follow patients being investigated for lung disease to test how accurate the scan is at the getting the diagnosis right.

NCT ID: NCT02879331 Not yet recruiting - Pulmonary Emphysema Clinical Trials

Clinical Study to Evaluate the Exercise Capacity in Patients With Severe Emphysema Treated With Coils

CYCLONE
Start date: September 2016
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The study hypothesis is that patients with homogeneous emphysema behave differently compared to heterogeneous emphysema with respect to exercise capacity. A better understanding of this difference will allow the investigators to choose the best treatment for each type of patient. The main purpose of this study is to evaluate the change in exercise capacity measured by cycle ergometry in patients with severe emphysema after endoscopic lung volume reduction with coils (eLVR). As a secondary purpose, the investigators want to perform an exploratory, randomized study to compare the results of two different therapeutic approaches in a small sample of patients with homogeneous emphysema.

NCT ID: NCT02877459 Not yet recruiting - Emphysema Clinical Trials

Clinical Investigation of a Modified Staged Treatment Algorithm Using the AeriSeal System

STAGE
Start date: September 2016
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

A multicenter, prospective, single-arm clinical investigation to evaluate the short term and long term safety of a modified staged treatment algorithm using the AeriSeal System.

NCT ID: NCT02838108 Not yet recruiting - Clinical trials for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)

The Relationship Between GOLD Risk Group and Clinical Outcomes in a Community-based COPD Cohort

Start date: August 2016
Phase: N/A
Study type: Observational

This is an observational study examining outcomes and treatment patterns in a community-based cohort of subjects with Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) who are based in the Kannapolis, NC area.

NCT ID: NCT02835001 Not yet recruiting - Emphysema Clinical Trials

Hyperinflation Assessment After Treatment by Lung Volume Reduction Coil

HEAT-LVRC
Start date: January 2017
Phase: Phase 3
Study type: Interventional

Hyperinflation Assessment After Treatment by Lung Volume Reduction Coil (HEAT-LVRC) on Hyperinflation in Severe Emphysema

NCT ID: NCT02827721 Recruiting - COPD Clinical Trials

Evaluation of Novel Lung Function Parameters in Patients With Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)

Start date: July 2015
Phase: N/A
Study type: Observational

Current guideline-based criteria defining COPD do not meet the challenges set by the complex pathophysiology of the disease. The investigators therefore aimed to evaluate novel or not widely used diagnostic approaches for the detection and therapeutic monitoring of COPD.

NCT ID: NCT02823223 Active, not recruiting - Clinical trials for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Endobronchial Valve in Patients With Heterogeneous Emphysema

Start date: June 2016
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

To compare the clinical outcomes of Endoscopic Lung Volume Reduction using Pulmonx Zephyr Endobronchial Valve (EBV) vs. Standard of Care (SoC) in the treatment of heterogeneous emphysema patients in a controlled trial design setting.
