Dyspnea and Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis
Longitudinal prospective exploratory study on the evolution of dyspnea, in its sensory and affective dimensions, in patients followed for idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), between inclusion and a 6-month evaluation
Early Diagnosis of Pulmonary Fibrosis - Diagnostic Delay
Patients with newly diagnosed IPF are investigated for the diagnostic delay before a diagnosis of IPF is made.
Effect of CPAP on Abnormal Gastroesophageal Reflux and Lung Inflammation in IPF
This study will evaluate the effect of CPAP therapy on esophageal pH and lung inflammation in patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) and sleep apnea.
Effect of Intrapulmonary Percussion Ventilation on Deposition of Inhaled Aerosols in Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis
This protocol aims to evaluate the feasibility and benefit of Intrapulmonary Percussive Ventilation (IPV) to improve deposition of inhaled radiolabelled aerosols in fibrotic lung regions of patients with Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF). Phase 1 of the protocol aims to identify the highest IPV pressure that is tolerated by individual patients. Secondary endpoints explore safety of IPV in IPF patients. Phase 2 of the protocol is a crossover randomized trial where patients will inhale 99mTc-labelled DiethyleneTriamine PentaAcetate (DTPA) aerosols with or without IPV. Aerosol deposition in HRCT-defined fibrotic regions of...
Effects of Pulmonary Diseases and Their Treatment on Cardiac Function
While the bidirectional relationship between the lung and the right heart are well studied, the cardiopulmonary interactions between the lung and the left heart are largely unresearched and not well understood. However, in recent years, there is a growing evidence that partially explains the bidirectional interaction between COPD and left heart. Systemic inflammation with multiorgan involvement is thought to play a role in COPD as a systemic disease. Some therapeutic approaches to COPD also appear to influence these cardiopulmonary interactions. While understanding these interactions is very important for clinicians, scientific data are ...
Efficacy and Safety Study of Orvepitant for Chronic Cough in Patients With Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis
ORV-PF-01 is a two way, placebo controlled, cross-over study, to evaluate the effect of two doses of orvepitant on cough in patients with IPF.
Efficacy of Intensive Cholecalciferol Monitoring and Supplementation on Serum vitD Levels in Pediatric Patients With CF
Cystic fibrosis (CF) is an autosomal recessive disease caused by alterations in the Cystic Fibrosis Transmembrane Conductance Regulator (CFTR) gene, characterized by multisystemic alterations, mainly in the lung, intestine, sweat, and bile ducts. In addition to pulmonary involvement, the presence of exocrine pancreatic insufficiency also increases the risk of survival, as it is associated with malnutrition and deficiency of fat-soluble vitamins, such as vitamin D. Vitamin D, in addition to its role in bone health, in the case of CF patients with chronic inflammation, it has been suggested that many of the cytokines that regulate...
Efficacy of Two Doses of Duloxetine & Amitriptyline in Interstitial Lung Disease-related Cough
This research study is evaluating the effectiveness of escalating doses of Amitriptyline and Duloxetine in reducing cough frequency in patients with interstitial lung disease (ILD)-related cough.
Efficiency Study for Acute Radiation-induced and Chemotherapy-induced Pulmonary Fibrosis With Bevasizumab
Due to the radiosensitivity of the lung, radiation-induced and chemotherapy-induced pneumonitis and pulmonary fibrosis are frequent happened following cancer therapy. It not only compromise cancer treatment, but also influence patient's life qualities and even death. there are no specific treatment modalities for this treatment-induced complication. Bevasizumab (Avastin), a VEGF inhibitor, can attenuate serum high expression VEGF and pulmonary permeability, maybe effective in the control acute pulmonary fibrosis. Patients will be randomized to receive Bevasizumab (7mg/kg iv) on day one and 21, followed by Dexamethasone （10mg iv d...
