End-of-Life Fear in Patients With End-Stage Lung Disease (COPD)

Background: COPD-related mortality differs markedly from that of other chronic diseases. While the mortality rates for heart disease and stroke have fallen significantly, death rates caused by COPD have more than doubled. Therefore there is a major need to address questions of palliative end-of-life care. Patients with end-stage pulmonary lung ...

Phase N/A

Airway Pressure Release Ventilation (APRV) Compared to ARDSnet Ventilation

Low volume ventilation may increase number of ventilatory free days and may improve overall patient survival. While reducing mean airway pressure has reduced barotrauma and improved patient survival, it has impaired attempts to improve alveolar recruitment. Alveolar recruitment is important as it improves V/Q mismatch, allows reduction in FIO2 earlier, ...


Immunization of Patients With Non Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC)

This is an uncontrolled, non-randomized trial to evaluate safety, immunogenicity and feasibility of a new vaccine, consisting of semi-allogeneic fibroblasts transfected with autologous tumor-derived DNA. Briefly, the plan is to use a two-stage trial design and to initially enroll 15 patients with non small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) over a ...


DNA Repair Genes and Outcomes in Patients With Stage III NSCLC

Patients with clinical stage IIIA N2 non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) have a 5-year survival rate of 10% to 15%, much worse than those of earlier stages of disease. The use of pre-operative (neo-adjuvant) chemotherapy has been shown to be beneficial in several studies.1 However, the precise chemotherapeutic regimen for ...

Phase N/A

Stem Cells and Resynchronization Cardiac

About 120cc of blood are collected from the iliac bone marrow under epidural anesthesia.In the cell therapy lab this blood is harvested and mononuclear cells are separated.This procedure takes roughly 4 hours.After dilution the mononuclear cells are injected into the cardiac muscles with fibroses area through 20 shots.This procedure is ...


Sorafenib and Erlotinib in Treating Patients With Stage IIIB or Stage IV Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer That Has Not Responded to Chemotherapy

OBJECTIVES: Primary - To assess the response rate of sorafenib tosylate in combination with erlotinib hydrochloride in patients with stage IIIB-IV non-small cell lung cancer refractory to 1 or 2 prior chemotherapy regimens. Secondary - To assess the response duration in patients treated with this regimen. - To assess the ...


Pathogenesis of Primary Ciliary Dyskinesia (PCD) Lung Disease

A key component of lung defense is the efficiency of mucociliary clearance (MCC). Primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD) is a human genetic disorder with defective MCC. This ongoing project is designed to identify additional disease-causing mutations in PCD, and correlate the molecular etiologies with the ciliary phenotype (ultrastructure, wave form and ...

Phase N/A

Hydroxychloroquine and Gefitinib to Treat Lung Cancer

Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is the most common cause of cancer mortality in men and women in Singapore.Chemotherapy and biologically targeted agents can extend survival only modestly for these patients; therefore, discovery of novel ways to prolong the disease course is a top research priority. The epidermal growth factor ...


A Registry of COPD Patients to be Used for Future Studies

To develop a cohort of COPD participants for study staff to determine the most likely candidates for future studies and to develop a repository of blood from subjects with COPD for future studies.

Phase N/A

Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis Registry for Future Studies

To establish a framework in which biologic samples and physiologic measures from patients with IPF can be longitudinally collected and evaluated. Having a bank of samples that are correlated with physiologic measures that follow patients through their course will allow the following proposed studies as well as future investigations to ...
