Treprostinil Sodium Inhalation for Patients At High Risk for ARDS

ARDS is defined by acute hypoxemia, respiratory failure and the presence of bilateral lung infiltrates. ARDS is a syndrome of inflammation and increased permeability that may coexist with left atrial or pulmonary capillary hypertension. Several recent trials in ARDS/ALI (Acute Lung Injury) have generated interest in the use of Prostacyclin ...

Granulocyte Macrophage-Colony Stimulating Factor (GM-CSF) Inhalation to Improve Host Defense and Pulmonary Barrier Restoration

This trial evaluates efficacy and safety of inhaled molgramostim (rhGM-CSF) in 45 patients with pneumonia associated acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). A third of the patients will receive 150 mcg inhaled molgramostim, another third 450 mcg and the remaining third will receive inhaled placebo for 3 days. The patients will ...

Effects and Safety of Infusion of Low-Doses of Methylprednisolone in Early ALI and ARDS in Children

Scientific background. Dysregulated systemic inflammation - characterized by protracted elevation of inflammatory cytokines in the circulation - is a key pathogenetic mechanism for morbidity and mortality in ALI/ARDS, and is associated with tissue insensitivity and/or resistance to inappropriately elevated endogenous glucocorticoids. In one study, prolonged methylprednisolone treatment of ARDS patients ...

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, ...

Phase

Continuous Exhaled Breath Condensate pH in Mechanically Ventilated Patients

The investigators have developed a method of collecting exhaled breath condensate pH continually from ventilated patients, which (1) takes samples from an exhaust port on the outside of the ventilator circuit, and (2) possesses no measurable resistance to the ventilator circuit (and, therefore the sampling procedure in no way affects ...

Phase

Evaluation of Safety & Efficacy of BIO-11006 Inhalation Solution in Patients With ARDS

This is a randomized, double blind, placebo controlled, parallel-group Phase IIa pilot study of aerosolized BIO 11006 in patients with sepsis-induced acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). All patients enrolled in the study will be ventilated. To be eligible for enrollment, patients must be adults who have sepsis-induced ARDS within 48 ...

Phase

Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs) for Treatment of Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARD) in Patients With Malignancies

The MSCs: MSCs are a type of stem cell that can be removed from bone marrow and grown into many different cell types that can be used to treat cancer and other diseases. The MSCs used in this study were collected from healthy donors and are stored and grown in ...

Phase

PGE1 as Additive Anticoagulant in ECMO-Therapy

Prostaglandins may inhibit platelet activation via the P2Y1 ADP receptor. Platelets may contribute to thromboembolic complications and coagulation activation during ECMO therapy. Retrospective data suggest that treatment with PGE1 may serve beneficial by reducing the amount of heparin needed for inhibition of coagulation activation, and by reducing the thromboembolic risk ...

Phase

Safety and Preliminary Efficacy of Sequential Multiple Ascending Doses of Solnatide to Treat Pulmonary Permeability Oedema in Patients With Moderate-to-severe ARDS

This phase IIb, randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind, dose escalation study will assess the local and systemic safety of 7 days orally inhaled sequential multiple ascending doses of solnatide in patients with pulmonary permeability oedema and moderate-to-severe ARDS and review potential efficacy endpoints for a future phase III pivotal trial.
