Collection of Airway Blood and/or Urine Specimens From Subjects for Research Studies

This is a protocol to obtain blood, urine and/or airway specimens from normal individuals and individuals with lung disorders in order to carry out laboratory studies looking at genetic expression, gene transfer, infection, proteins, human genes, and to store specimens for future genetic studies. Specimens collected may include blood, urine ...

Phase N/A

Summer-Winter Variability in the Level of Physical Activity in Daily Life in Brazilian and Belgian Patients With COPD

The sample will be composed by at least 20 patients with moderate-severe COPD from each institution involved (Catholic University of Leuven, Belgium and State University of Londrina, Brazil), adding up to 40 patients (see sample size calculation below). However, the sample size could be increased if necessary to achieve intermediate ...

Phase N/A

Metabolic Changes in Patients With Chronic Cardiopulmonary Disease

This study aims to evaluate prevalence of sarcopenia and cachexia in patients with chronic cardiopulmonary disease. The investigators will also investigate metabolic disorders like glucose metabolism, presence of metabolic syndrome, body composition and histological changes in skeletal muscle and body fat. Finally, patients will be followed for clinical endpoints.

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

COPD Rehabilitation in Primary and Secondary Health Care

Pulmonary rehabilitation of COPD patients are implemented in a non-randomized manner in two settings: primary and secondary health care. The effect on quality of life and hospitalizations will be evaluated

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

Inhaled Mannitol and Ciliary Beat Frequency in COPD Patients

The main purpose of the study is to evaluate the effect of mannitol on the cilia's beat frequency (ciliary beat frequency) in COPD patients.

Phase N/A

Fat Metabolism in OSA and COPD

This research study involves 3 visits for subjects and healthy controls. The first visit is the screening visit and includes review of the informed consent and a DXA scan and the second and third visit for the study days. For the first test day, 3 hours of the subjects time ...

Phase N/A

Biomarkers of Early Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) in Smokers - Longitudinal Study

This is a longitudinal observational study to identify and validate protein biomarkers for COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases) and cardiovascular disease in smokers and ex-smokers attending primary care. Special emphasize is to correlate biomarkers to different phases of COPD, to progression of the disease, and to treatment of the disease. ...

Phase N/A

Longitudinal Evaluation of HIV-associated Lung Disease Phenotypes

The study is a multicenter, prospective observational study of pathogenesis of HIV pulmonary disease. We will determine the prevalence and risk factors for lung dysfunction as quantified by pulmonary function testing in HIV+ subjects. We will build on our existing longitudinal cohorts while adjusting for important co-variates such as antiretroviral ...
