Effect of Losartan on Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)

Losartan, an angiotensin receptor blocker, has been effective in preventing the development of emphysema and lung inflammation in animal models of COPD. Moreover, there is epidemiologic evidence that suggests that this drug may be effective in reducing COPD morbidity and mortality. This study will provide treatment with either losartan or ...

COPD Patient-Powered Research Network

The COPD Patient-Powered Research Network (COPD PPRN) is a patient research registry with the goal of enrolling 75,000 or more COPD patients and those at risk who are willing to share their heath information over several years and participate in research. The COPD PPRN has built an online platform to ...

Phase N/A

Effect of Losartan on Airway Mucociliary Dysfunction in Patients With COPD and Chronic Bronchitis

Investigator's preliminary data show that TGF-1 and cigarette smoke exposure decrease BK activity and cause airway surface liquid (ASL) volume depletion and losartan partially rescues BK channel function leading to increased ASL volume and ciliary beat frequency (CBF) in airway epithelial cells exposed to smoke. Therefore the investigators propose that ...

The Effect of Physical Activity Promotion on Short and Long-term Outcomes in COPD

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a major cause of global morbidity and is projected to become the third leading cause of death in the world by 2020. In Veterans, the prevalence is high; in VISN1 in FY 2012, 9% of outpatient Veterans had the ICD-9 diagnosis of COPD. In ...

Gala Treatment for Chronic Bronchitis in Canada

The Gala Airway Treatment system is a device-based, energy delivery system that delivers high frequency short duration energy to the airway epithelium and sub-mucosal tissue layers. The energy is delivered via a proprietary catheter through the bronchoscope. Two sessions of treatment will be delivered one month apart. The right lung ...

Phase N/A

Emphysema Research Registry

The Emphysema Research Center will enroll up to 3000 subjects at the University of Pittsburgh. The experimental procedures that will be conducted as a part of the Emphysema Research Registry include gathering basic personal information (e.g., name, address, phone number, etc.), asking basic screening questions (which may involve the examination ...

Phase N/A

International Plastic Bronchitis Registry

Plastic bronchitis (PB) patients have casts removed during bronchoscopy as part of their routine care or that they are able to expectorate (cough out) casts naturally. The casts are normally discarded. Patients that agree to participate in the registry ship the airway casts and medical history to Dr. Bruce Rubin's ...

Phase N/A

Study of Airflow in the Lungs Using Helium MRI

The Biotechnology High Performance Computing Software Applications Institute (BHSAI) of the Department of Defense (DoD) is studying airflow in the lungs using computational fluid dynamics in order to characterize disease-specific airflow patterns and provide useful information for medical applications. To validate these models, they are seeking to obtain experimental data ...

Etiologies Investigations and Outcomes of Patients Presenting With Hemoptysis

RATIONALE Hemoptysis, mild or massive, is worrisome for both patients and physicians. The management is different depending on the causes, which are not well defined for the North American population. Despite the fact that this symptom is commonly reported in clinic, there are only a few studies published on this ...

Examining the Genetic Factors That May Cause Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)

COPD is a disease in which the lung airways are damaged and partly obstructed, making it difficult to breathe. Millions of people in the United States have COPD, and it is the third leading cause of death in the United States. Symptoms include coughing, excess mucus production, shortness of breath, ...
