The aim of this study is to investigate the efficacy of non-invasive ventilation (NIV) on nocturnal hypoventilation in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) who are on long term oxygen therapy (LTOT) at home.
A prospective, multicenter study including a cross-section validation to define sensitivity and specificity of CAPTURE to identify previously undiagnosed patients with clinically significant Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), and its impact on clinical care across a broad range of primary care settings in a cluster randomized controlled clinical trial.
A prospective multi-center study to define the sensitivity and specificity of CAPTURE for identifying previously undiagnosed patients with clinically significant COPD in a broad range of primary care settings.
The overall objective of this study is to determine the impact early nutritional and respiratory indices have on early CF lung disease. This knowledge will guide clinical management of infants with CF, who are now primarily diagnosed through newborn screening.
This study is a multicentered and non-interventional prospective cohort study. Study centers shall be the institutions where the examinations, adopted in the ACO diagnostic criteria9) from The Japanese Respiratory Society, are performed at least once a year as a part of their regular practice. Physicians participating in the study will consecutively register by means of central registration outpatients who have the characteristics of COPD in the ACO diagnostic criteria9) from The Japanese Respiratory Society, and who have been confirmed to satisfy the inclusion criteria whereas not violating the exclusion criteria.
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a preventable respiratory characterized by airflow obstruction that is not fully reversible. This disease a major cause of mortality worldwide. It is projected to rank the third-leading cause of death in 2020. The objective of this study is to examine the effects of a physical therapy intervention in stable patients with COPD.
This project compares two models of the Serious Illness Care Program (SICP) in primary care: clinician-focused SICP and team-based SICP. Discussion and planning for serious illness care can help patients identify what is most important to them and assure they receive care that best matches their goals and values, such as spending more time at home or not being in pain.
Evaluation of lung ultrasound as a diagnostic tool in pregnant patients.
A Phase 3b, 42-day, Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo−Controlled, Parallel Group Study to Evaluate the Safety and Tolerability of Nebulized Revefenacin and Nebulized Formoterol Fumarate (PERFOROMIST®) Administered in Sequence and as a Combined Solution in Subjects with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
Diffusing capacity for carbon monoxide (DLco) abnormalities are common in HIV+ individuals and associated with significant morbidity and mortality. The complexity and the individualized differences in causes of these abnormalities have been challenging to unravel using traditional approaches. In this proposal, the investigators construct a systems' modeling approach to identify novel molecular and clinical pathways contributing to DLco impairment in HIV+ individuals and to determine predictive signatures of DLco decline in order to develop strategies to treat and prevent abnormal lung function in this susceptible population.
