Recurrent Respiratory Papillomatosis (RRP) causes wart-like growths in the airway which can make it difficult to breathe, speak and carry out normal everyday activities. It is a rare condition but is more common and aggressive in children than in adults, affecting 4 in every 100,000 children. There is no known cure for RRP, but symptoms are checked through regular hospital visits, with multiple therapies or procedures under general anaesthetic needed to remove or shrink the growths which can grow back quickly. The problem is that nobody knows which therapies or procedures work best. Aim: To identify which RRP treatments currently used in National Health Service (NHS) hospitals within the United Kingdom (UK) are the most effective and safest in the short- and long-term. It will also identify which patients respond best to specific treatments, and those who are at higher risk of experiencing a complication after treatment. Method: Collect information from usual patient care and quality of life questionnaire responses in a secure online database. Participation in this study requires patient/parent/guardian consent. This observational study does not require patients to undergo any additional intervention as part of the research.
Background: Recurrent respiratory papillomatosis (RRP) is a rare disease caused by human papillomavirus. It can cause voice changes, airway compromise, pulmonary lesions, and cancers. PD-L1 is a protein on cells. It may be able to stop or decrease the immune system s response to viruses such as human papillomavirus. The drug Avelumab interferes with the activity of PD-L1. Researchers want to see if Avelumab treats RRP and study its side effects. Objective: To see if Avelumab works in treating RRP and is safe. Eligibility: People ages 18 and older with aggressive RRP that has not responded to available treatments Design: Participants will be screened with: Medical history Previously collected tumor tissue Physical exam Blood, urine, and heart tests Endoscopy procedure: A small tube with a camera is used to look in the nose, throat, larynx, and upper windpipe. Before starting treatment, participants will have: Endoscopy under anesthesia. A sample of papilloma will be taken. Voice handicap questionnaire CT scans Apheresis: An IV is inserted into an arm vein. White blood cells are separated from the rest of the blood and stored for research. The rest of the blood is returned through the same IV or one in the other arm. Participants will get the study drug by IV every 2 weeks for up to 12 weeks. Participants will repeat the previous tests throughout the study. If they respond to treatment, participants will be evaluated every 6 weeks (3 times), then every 12 weeks (3 times), then every 26 weeks (2 times) until their disease progresses. Participants will be evaluated 30 days after their last infusion. They will then be contacted annually.
This study evaluates the safety and tolerability of the investigational drug EF-022 in the treatment of adult patients with Recurrent Respiratory Papillomatosis (RRP). Patients will be administered EF-022, either intramuscular or subcutaneous, for a period of 6 months. Preliminary effect of the drug on the disease will be evaluated by following the number and severity of the lesions in the respiratory tract and the effect on voice changes.
This research study is evaluating an immune modulatory agent as a possible treatment for patients with Recurrent Respiratory Papillomatosis (RRP) with significant disease involving the larynx, trachea, and/or lungs. The investigators will be using Pembrolizumab as the treating agent.
The purpose of the study was to determine, whether patients with recurrent respiratory papillomatosis (RRP) suffer from extra oesophageal reflux more often than patients with laryngeal cyst (control group).
The aim of this study is to compare the efficacy of intralesional bevacizumab, a monoclonal antibody against vascular endothelial growth factor, versus the antiviral drug cidofovir in patients with recurrent respiratory papillomatosis.
The aim of the project is to compare NBI endoscopy and standard endoscopic method using white light and evaluate accuracy both methods in early detection and diagnosis hypopharyngeal and laryngeal precancerous and cancerous lesions. A higher contrast between the mucosal epithelium and blood vessels is achieved in NBI endoscopy using filtered light comparing to white light observations. This allows detection of small mucosal changes, few millimetres in diameter, which are not observable using white light. The second aim in patients with squamous cell carcinoma of the upper aerodigestive tract is to compare extension of mucosal lesions by evaluation of NBI endoscopy and white light endoscopy, which is crucial for perform targeted biopsy and for determination of resection margins in cancer surgery. The investigators expect that dysplastic changes of mucosa or early laryngeal cancerous lesions are detected in white light endoscopy rarely. In case our hypothesis is confirmed, frequency of precancerous and early cancerous lesions of hypopharynx and larynx is more common in patients with non-specific symptoms of laryngeal and pharyngeal diseases.
Recurrent respiratory papillomatosis in children caused by HPV 6,11 can be a life threatening condition resulting in surgical interventions. The maturing and disintegrating papillomas are the sources for the subsequent HPV relapses and immunization might slow down or even prevent this ongoing process. After an initial immunological and ear-nose-throat (ENT) assessment children with at least 3 relapses in their patient history will be vaccinated with 4-valent HPV vaccine according to the following schedule: 0., 2., 6. months. It will be followed by an immunological and 3 ENT examinations to assess response to vaccination.
Juvenile onset recurrent respiratory papillomatosis (JORRP) is a rare, difficult to treat, benign tumor of the pediatric airway. Current therapy is mainly surgical, but in a significant portion of patients adjuvant therapy is required to control the disease process. Although multiple adjuvant medical therapies have been tried, success has been limited. We have seen some success in a limited amount of patients using orally administered propranolol. Our goal is to enroll a larger cohort of patients to determine the effectiveness of propranolol as an adjuvant therapy for JORRP.
This phase I single center open labeled study is planned to assess the safety and tolerability of bevacizumab for treating patients with bilateral Recurrent Respiratory Papillomatosis (RRP). Approximately 20 patients will receive bevacizumab directly injected into the vocal folds. Patients who enroll in the protocol will be injected with bevacizumab in one vocal fold that represents the more diseased of the two folds. A sham injection with saline will be administered to the other vocal fold as the control. This therapy will be administered once every 6 ± 1 week for 6 months, with the same vocal fold selected for the initial treatment always getting the drug injection. The investigator will also treat lesions by laser photoangiolysis of both vocal folds using the 532 nm potassium-titanyl-phosphate (KTP) laser.
