HIV+ Alveolar Macrophage Oxidant-mediated Apoptosis of Pulmonary Endothelium

The purpose of this study is to analyze biologic samples from the blood, airways and/or urine of HIV- and HIV+ smokers and non-smokers to better understand the etiology and pathogenesis of emphysema in association with HIV infection. The underlying hypothesis is that the combination of HIV infection and smoking creates ...

Phase N/A

Transpulmonary Pressures in Mechanical Ventilated Patients With Morbid Obesity

We are studying adult patients with morbid obesity with respiratory failure requiring mechanical ventilation. We are measuring transesophageal presssures to estimate ideal PEEP and evaluate hemodynamic parameters.

Phase N/A

Inflammation and Distribution of Pulmonary Ventilation Before and After Tracheal Intubation in ARDS Patients

We will conduct a prospective clinical protocol in patients admitted to the ICU of the Hospital Clnico UC-Christus, Santiago de Chile, with diagnosis of acute hypoxemic respiratory failure, but who are still ventilating spontaneously. Clinical data: After hospital admission, patients who meet inclusion/exclusion criteria will be asked to consent to ...

Phase N/A

Nashville Early Diagnosis Lung Cancer Project

It is proposed to test the hypotheses in a screening study of high risk individuals (characterized by an established prediction rule). The expected prevalence of lung cancer in this high risk group is estimated to be 2% per year. All individuals benefit from clinic visit, low-dose Chest CT, spirometry and ...

Phase N/A

Plasma Catestatin Expression and Cardiometabolic Parameters in Patients With Congestive Heart Failure

The congestive heart failure (HF) is a condition associated with substantial morbidity, mortality, and high healthcare expenditures. From the pathophysiological standpoint, several mechanisms contribute to the progression and dysfunction of the failing heart such as an increased hemodynamic overload, impaired myocyte calcium cycling, upregulated apoptotic activity, deficient or increased production ...

Phase N/A

Integrative-omics of the Disordered COPD Small Airway Epithelium

Hypothesis: We hypothesize that the disordered differentiation of the SAE that characterizes COPD results from the complex interaction of cigarette smoke components with a hierarchy of genetic, epigenetic, gene expression and metabolomics network interactions as the BC differentiate into a mucociliary epithelium. Specific aim 1. Using an integrated network systems ...

Phase N/A

Evaluation of Novel Lung Function Parameters and Quantitative Computed Tomography (qCT) in Patients With Pulmonary Disease

Current diagnostic tools used in pulmonary disease often do not meet the challenges set by the respective pathophysiology. The investigators therefore aimed to evaluate novel or not widely used diagnostic approaches for the detection and therapeutic monitoring of patients with various pulmonary diseases.

Phase N/A

Epidemiology of Surfactant Protein-B Deficiency

BACKGROUND Respiratory distress syndrome is the most frequent respiratory cause of death and morbidity in infants less than 1 year of age in the United States. Of approximately 28,500 infant deaths in 2006, 5,421 (19.7%) were diagnosed with respiratory distress as either the primary (1,011 - 3.7%) or secondary (4,410 ...

Phase N/A

Initial and Chronic Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA) Infection in Cystic Fibrosis (CF)

This is an observational, translational study examined bacterial morphology and function prevs. post antibiotic therapy in patients with CF who experience a pulmonary exacerbation that requires IV antibiotics. All clinical care is dictated by the treating physician(s). Inclusion criteria: Male or female with a confirmed diagnosis of CF (by sweat ...

Phase N/A

HIV-related Accelerated Aging of the Airway Epithelium

While the epidemiologic data linking HIV infection to an increased risk for COPD is clear, the pathogenesis of the accelerated development of COPD in HIV infected smokers is not understood. We have focused on the SAE as the central target for the accelerated development of COPD in HIV infected smokers, ...
