Patients are needed to participate in a clinical research study for the treatment of Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease

This study is a multicentered, observational study of the patients with COPD who were enrolled in 45 tertiary and university-affiliated hospitals from December 2012 to now. The initial evaluation for all patients includes pulmonary function tests (PFT), 6-min walk distance (6MWD), COPD Assessment Test (CAT), modified Medical Research Council (mMRC) ...

Phase N/A

Physiological and Clinical Changes in NHF Therapy

The study explores the changes in pressure, volume and in hypercapnia in patients with COPD and ILD. The investigators will use different application forms.

Phase N/A

Chest Wall Motion Analysis in Disease

Optoelectronic plethysmography (OEP) is based on the analysis during breathing of the trajectories of a series of markers positioned on the thoracic-abdominal surface of the patient. The positions in space of these markers are recorded and processed with mathematical models and algorithms by a computing unit that can accurately measure ...

Phase N/A

Long-term Physical Training in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Several impairing factors contribute to physical limitation in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) as deconditioning, muscle dysfunction and physical inactivity. The available literature clearly indicates that these therapeutic targets benefit from exercise training in patients with COPD and, currently, the key point is not whether patients should or not exercise, ...

Phase N/A

Canadian Cohort on the Origin and Progression of Airway Disease: Physiology Platform

The Canadian Respiratory Research Network (CRRN) has recently been established to study the origins and evolution of airways disease in the population. The CRRN is funded by the Institute of Cardio-respiratory Health (ICRH), an institute of the CIHR. The Physiology platform will support the other CRRN platforms (biology, imaging, population ...

Phase N/A

Pulmonary Rehab Dyspnea Walk and Step Testing in COPD

This is a multi-site collaborative study that will be done in the context of three Quebec hospitals' outpatient pulmonary rehabilitation programs: Montreal Chest Institute; University of Laval, and Hopital Sacre-Coeur Montreal. The objectives are two-fold. First, to determine the Minimal Clinical Important Difference in intensity ratings of perceived breathlessness for ...

Phase N/A

Slow Chest Compression on Dynamic Hyperinflation Dyspnea and Peripheral Muscle Deoxygenation in Patients With COPD

Pulmonary function tests: Lung function will be tested using a total body plethysmography (Eric Jaeger, Germany), and the calibration will be checked before each evaluation. Spirometry will be performed in accordance with American Thoracic Society and European Respiratory Society (ATS/ERS) standards (Miller et al., 2005; Wanger et al., 2005). The ...

Phase N/A

Home Non Invasive Ventilation (NIV) Treatment for COPD-patients After a NIV-treated Exacerbation

Background Noninvasive ventilation (NIV) has been shown to improve survival in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), admitted with acute hypercapnic respiratory failure (AHRF); and NIV is recommended as a treatment of AHRF due to COPD. COPD patients having survived AHRF have a poor prognosis; Chu et al. have ...


Early Detection of COPD Patients in GOLD 0 (Smokers) Population

Even though the main risk factor for the development of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is smoking only in less than one third of the smokers the clinically manifest COPD will develop. The disease progressive nature with high disability and mortality especially in the final stages makes it plausible to ...

Phase N/A

Safety and Efficacy of Adipose Derived Stem Cells for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

This will be an open-label, non-randomized multi-center patient sponsored study of Autologous SVF (AD-SVF) implantation after liposuction using an IV delivery system and Inhalation infusion. AD-SVF will be derived from the patient's adipose-derived tissue. Liposuction using local anesthesia and syringe collection will be performed to collect the adipose tissue specimen ...
