MRI as a Means to Measure Lung Function: Non-Invasive Imaging in Neonates and Children

The purpose of this study is to develop rapid MRI techniques for imaging the lung with hyperpolarized helium-3 gas as an inhaled contrast agent. These techniques will be piloted in adults and older children before testing them in younger children and infants. The purpose is to enable imaging of non-sedated ...

Phase N/A

An Evaluation of the Utility of the ExSpiron Respiratory Variation Monitor During Upper GI Endoscopy

The purpose of this study is to assess the utility of the ExSpiron Respiratory Variation Monitor in patients undergoing an interventional procedure with anesthesia. The primary outcome measure will be the average minute ventilation of the patient during the procedure. This study will also examine the correlation between clinical interventions ...

Phase N/A

Collecting Medical Information and Tissue Samples From Patients With Pancreatic Cancer or Other Pancreatic Disorders

OBJECTIVES Primary To collect clinical data and family histories and blood and/or tissue samples from patients diagnosed with pancreatic diseases, including pancreatic cancer, for use in future studies. To collect information regarding food preparation and intake in these patients. Secondary To make available to researchers medical data and biospecimens to ...

Phase N/A

Biomarker for Patients With a Cystic Fibrosis Disease

Cystic fibrosis is an inherited disease characterized by the buildup of thick, sticky mucus that can damage many of the body's organs. The disorder's most common signs and symptoms include progressive damage to the respiratory system and chronic digestive system problems. The feature of the disorder and their severity varies ...

Phase N/A

Blood Collection From Individuals With Lung Disease for Genetic Studies

The investigators hope to be able to identify an association between a genetic make-up in the blood samples and the risks of developing a particular lung disease, or severity of a lung disease. The findings of this study might be important to develop future preventative methods and potential treatments for ...

Phase N/A

Investigating Mucinase Activity in Airway Disease

Accumulation of mucus in the airway involves the process of overproduction and reduced clearance of mucin glycoproteins. To date, little attention has been focused on mechanisms of mucin clearance from the airway. We hypothesize that there is enzymatic degradation of mucins ("mucinase activity") in the airway, which acts to break ...

Phase N/A

Multi Breath Nitrogen Washout (MBNW) as a Measure of Small Airway Function in Patients With Respiratory Disease

It is well documented that there are significant ventilatory changes in respiratory diseases such as cystic fibrosis, asthma and the onset of bronchiolitis obliterans syndrome (BOS) following chronic rejection of lung transplantation. At present, we use measures such as spirometry and lung biopsies to determine the changes of airway function ...

Phase N/A

Assessment of Heart and Heart-Lung Transplant Patient Outcomes Following Pulmonary Rehabilitation

At present, a specific community based rehabilitation programme for lung or heart-lung transplant recipients does not exist. 160 hospitals throughout the United Kingdom (UK) offer pulmonary rehabilitation programmes. The programmes operate under evidence-based guidelines as outlined by the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy. Increasing evidence shows that rehabilitation programmes help improve ...

Phase

Studying Patients With Cystic Fibrosis and Other Pulmonary and Pancreatic Disorders

This is an omnibus protocol for studying patients with cystic fibrosis and other familial pulmonary and pancreatic disorders. The main purpose of the study is to expand knowledge of the natural history, clinical manifestations (phenotypes) and the genetic variants (genotypes) of cystic fibrosis. A well-characterized population of patients with cystic ...

Phase N/A

Role of Genetic Factors in the Development of Lung Disease

This study is designed to evaluate genetic mechanisms of lung disease by surveying polymorphic genes involved in respiratory function and examining gene expression in the lung cells of individuals with pulmonary disease (e.g., alpha 1-antitrypsin deficiency, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, cystic fibrosis, sarcoidosis, history of infection, and genetic mutations ...
