A randomised, open label 2-way cross-over study to compare the effects of inhaled Beclometasone/Formoterol/Glycopyrronium (TRIMBOW) pMDI to Beclometasone/Formoterol (FOSTAIR) pMDI on hyperinflation and expiratory flow limitation in moderate to severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
This is a randomised, controlled, two period cross-over, 4 weeks chronic dosing, study to evaluate the effects of Budesonide/Glycopyrronium/Formoterol Fumarate (BGF) and Glycopyrronium/Formoterol Fumarate (GFF) on airway dimensions.
Researchers are trying to see if a multicomponent intervention to support weight loss decreases dyspnea in obese people with lung disease.
This study aims at describing the frequency, timing and type of pulmonary complications detected with lung ultrasound in critically-ill parturients in admitted to a high-dependency unit in Freetown, Sierra Leone.
The purpose of this study is to explore the role of low-dose immediate-release oral morphine as a novel adjunct pharmacotherapy to enable symptomatic adults with advanced chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or interstitial lung disease (ILD) to exercise at higher intensities for longer durations and maximize the psycho-physiological benefits of a supervised exercise training program. We hypothesize that, compared to placebo, exercise training with oral morphine will result in relatively greater improvements in exercise endurance time and intensity ratings of perceived breathlessness during constant-load cardiopulmonary cycle exercise testing (CPET) at 75% of peak power output (PPO).
This will be a prospective study examining serum levels of MMP-13 and alpha-1 antitrypsin as well as other biomarkers as well as urine biomarkers of smoking status and collagen degradation in the COPD patient population. Serum and urine biomarkers at baseline and after COPD exacerbations will be assessed against change in lung function as measured by pulmonary function testing.
This study aims to assess the effect of nasal high flow oxygen therapy on regional function measured by volumetric computed tomography, in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
Pulmonary tuberculosis (TB) is an important risk factor for chronic respiratory disease due to residual lung damage. A recent review of the literature on TB sequelae and rehabilitation has provided clear evidence that TB is definitively responsible for lung function impairment. Functional evaluation of TB patients after completion of pulmonary tuberculosis treatment or spontaneous healing should be considered as part of clinical care. Unfortunately, few studies are available in the literature investigating the physiopathology of lung damage, its impact on quality of life, the potential need for pulmonary rehabilitation (PR), and the effects of a PR program.Objectives of this prospective multicentre international study are: Primary Objective-to assess the exercise capacity 6-min walking test in patients with post-TB lung impairment after completion of pulmonary tuberculosis treatment or after spontaneous healing. Secondary Objectives-to assess the effects of the PR program on dyspnoea symptoms and muscle fatigue, quality of life.
The main objective is to assess long term tolerability and safety of treatment with oral nintedanib in patients with Progressive Fibrosing Interstitial Lung Disease (PF-ILD) who have complete (and did not prematurely discontinue trial medication in) the phase III parent trial, INBUILD® (trial 1199.247).
Researchers have found a link between chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and heart disease; however, a link is all they have found. Cardiovascular health in COPD is controlled by different mechanisms including vascular health and systemic inflammation. The investigators have collected preliminary data to support that concentrations of Sirtuin 1 (Sirt1), a protein that plays a key role in cardioprotection, may be involved in cardiovascular health in patients with COPD. Resveratrol, an over the counter natural polyphenol found in a variety of food, is a direct activator of Sirt1 and has been used to improve cardiovascular health in different cohorts. The current project is an attempt to expand previous findings and explore the effects of the sub-chronic use of resveratrol in sustaining the improvements in cardiovascular health in COPD.
