Characterization of Antibacterial Antibodies in Patients With Cystic Fibrosis
Most of the cystic fibrosis (CF) patients are or have been pulmonary colonized with bacteria such as Pseudomonas aeruginosa or Staphylococcus aureus. Aim of this study is to detect virulence factor neutralizing antibodies in the sera of the study population followed by B cell repertoire analyses to design B cell-derived neutralizing monoclonal antibodies. The functionality of neutralizing antibodies rests on inhibition of virulence factors by binding of crucial epitopes rather than merely the induction of opsonization. Focusing on patients with bacterial colonization/chronic infections or a history of an acute infection in the past,...
Characterization of Pulmonary Microbiome in Cystic Fibrosis Patients
The composition and role of the pulmonary microbiota is not yet well described in cystic fibrosis patients. The objective of our longitudinal follow-up of primary colonised patients is to show the presence of a link between the composition of the microbiota and the effectiveness of antibiotic therapy. All patients followed at the Montpellier CF center will be asked to participate in this cohort. All patients have a regular follow-up every 1 to 6 months and will be asked at each visit to keep their sputum sample in excess of the analyses requested for their follow-up
Clinical and Basic Investigations Into Hermansky-Pudlak Syndrome
Hermansky-Pudlak Syndrome (HPS) is an inherited disease which results in decreased pigmentation (oculocutaneous albinism), bleeding problems due to a platelet abnormality (platelet storage pool defect), and storage of an abnormal fat-protein compound (lysosomal accumulation of ceroid lipofuscin). The disease can cause poor functioning of the lungs, intestine, kidneys, or heart. The major complication of the disease is pulmonary fibrosis and typically causes death in patients ages 40 - 50 years old. The disorder is common in Puerto Rico, where many of the clinical research studies on the disease have been conducted. Neither the full...
Clinical Course of Interstitial Lung Diseases: European IPF Registry and Biobank
Born out of the European Union 7th Framework Programme funded project European IPF Network (eurIPFnet), the European IPF Registry (eurIPFreg) has become Europe's leading database of longitudinal data from IPF patients, including control groups of patients with other lung diseases. The registry was initiated with the intention of creating a permanent and continuously growing record of well defined data on IPF in Europe, in order to increase the chances of finding better treatment options for this devastating disease. Clinical colleagues who would like to actively participate (both in terms of patient recruitment and data analysis)...
Clinical Study of Allogeneic Adipovarian Active Protein in the Treatment of Severe Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis
The goal of this clinical trail is to study the efficacy and safety of allogeneic adipocyclical active protein in the treatment of severe idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. The main questions it aims to answer are: 1. Efficacy of allogeneic adipromic active protein in the treatment of severe idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis 2. Safety of allogeneic adipovularic active protein in the treatment of severe idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. A total of 7 participants will be enrolled. Participants will be asked that they will receive 2ml of each nebulized inhalation Cell Free Fat Extract (CEFFE), inhaled every 3 days, for...
Clinical Trial to Evaluate the Safety and Efficacy of DWN12088 in Patients With IPF
This is a randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled multicenter study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of DWN12088 in patients with Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis.
Cohort of IPF Patients Experiencing an Exacerbation
Extension of the PFBIO cohort which includes patients with newly diagnosed idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) for longitudinal follow-up for up to 5 years. In the PFBIO-EXA extension, patients are included if they experience an exacerbation, or other increase in respiratory symptoms requiring hospital admission, for further collection of clinical and biological data.
Collection of Airway, Blood and/or Urine Specimens From Subjects for Research Studies
The purpose of this study is to obtain biologic materials from the blood, airways and/or urine of normal individuals and individuals with lung disease. The normal are used to establish a set of normal ranges for various parameters. These provide control information when compared to individuals with various pulmonary diseases, and will help in understanding of the etiology and pathogenesis of various lung diseases. The underlying hypothesis is that the pathologic morphological changes in the airway epithelium must be preceded by changes in the gene expression pattern of the airway epithelium and potentially in macrophages.
Comparison Between Ultra-low-dose Computed Tomography and Lung MRI in Cystic Fibrosis
The purpose of this study is to compare the performances of ultra-low dose computed tomography (CT) and lung magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for morphological assessment of cystic fibrosis-related lung disease and to compare their performances to conventional low dose CT
Comparison of Pulmonary Telerehabilitation and Physical Activity Recommendations in Patients With Post Covid Fibrosis
Rehabilitation plays a very important role in the management of patients with COVID-19, focusing on respiratory and motor functions, and therefore the importance of establishing treatment strategies to ensure optimal recovery of these patients has been emphasized. It has been stated that physical activity recommendations should be clarified for the management of symptoms associated with prolonged COVID-19 Syndrome and for the continuation of activities of daily living. It has been stated that after COVID-19 pneumonia, it is necessary to evaluate the physical functions of patients with long-term follow-up and to establish ...
