Determinants of Onset and Progression of COPD in Young Adults

COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) is a Public Health problem due to its impact in the patient's quality of life, high prevalence, growing incidence and socioeconomic implication. COPD natural history and first stages determinants are unknown. Knowing them will help to understand the natural history of the disease and to ...

Phase N/A

Chen-style Tai Chi in Pulmonary Rehabilitation for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

This study will evaluate the effects of Chen-style Tai Chi compared to conventional exercise in pulmonary rehabilitation for COPD patients. Half of participants will receive the Chen-style Tai Chi intervention, while the other half will receive the conventional exercise intervention. Both groups will receive the same eduction and support during ...

Phase N/A

Improvement of Sleep Quality by RePneu Coils in Advanced Pulmonary Emphysema

Improvement of sleep quality in emphysema patients is desirable. Yet, there are no data of patients treated with RePneu coils. This monocenter prospective study investigates the effect on sleep quality of RePneu coils for reduction of dynamic hyperinflation in advanced disease stages of pulmonary emphysema. Patient's sleep will be studied ...

Phase N/A

Effect of Aclidinium/Formoterol on Nighttime Lung Function and Morning Symptoms in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

STUDY DESIGN: This will be a randomized, placebo-controlled crossover study where patients will receive an evening dose of either aclidinium/formoterol (ACL/FOR) or placebo after steady-state conditions on twice-daily ACL/FOR have been established. Patients will continue to take the same dosage of inhaled corticosteroid (ICS) as they did prior to study ...


Evaluation of the Effect of Roflumilast in Hyperinflated COPD Patients Using Functional Respiratory Imaging

In this study the efficacy of Roflumilast in addition to LAMA/LABA therapy will be assessed using Functional Respiratory Imaging. In total 40 Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patients, Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease (GOLD) stages C and D, who are stable on LABA/LAMA therapy and who are prone ...


Pilot Study of Physiological Effect of High-Flow Nasal Cannula on Respiratory Pattern and Work of Breathing

HFNC has been shown to have many advantages in the treatment of acutely hypoxemic patients, improving their clinical outcome. The exact mechanism underlying this beneficial effect is still not completely understood. Few studies have analyzed the effect of HFNC on ventilatory pattern and work of breathing. The majority of these ...

Phase N/A

Assessment of Switching From Salmeterol/Fluticasone to Indacaterol/Glycopyrronium in a symtomaticCOPD Patient Cohort

This study will investigate whether switching symptomatic COPD patients from a fixed-dose combination of salmeterol/fluticasone 50/500 µg b.i.d. to a fixed dose combination of QVA149 110/50 µg o.d. leads to improved lung function and airflow. It will also assess the effect on symptom burden, breathlessness, and use of rescue medication ...


A Study to Evaluate the Safety Efficacy and Changes in Induced Sputum and Blood Biomarkers Following Daily Repeat Doses of Inhaled GSK2269557 in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Subjects With Acute Exacerbation

The purpose of this study is to evaluate specific alterations in immune cell mechanisms related to neutrophil function as detected by PI3Kdelta-dependent changes in messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA) extracted from induced sputum in patients experiencing an exacerbation of COPD, with or without treatment with GSK2269557. The efficacy of treatment with ...


Seasonal Influenza Vaccine Quadrivalent Versus Trivalent in Patients With Advanced Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Primary Objectives: To evaluate the magnitude of the humoral immune responses to quadrivalent vs trivalent influenza vaccines in adults between the age of 50 and 64 years with a prior diagnosis of GOLD Stage C and D COPD (vs. those patients without COPD). To demonstrate immunogenicity by measuring hemagglutination inhibiting ...


A Randomized Multicenter Open-label Parallel-group 12-week Study to Assess the Efficacy and Safety of Switching From Tiotropium to QVA149 (Indacaterol Maleate/Glycopyrronium Bromide) in Symptomatic Mild to Moderate COPD Patients

To demonstrate superiority of QVA149 (110/50 μg) once daily compared to tiotropium 18 μg once daily in terms of trough forced expiratory volume in 1 second (FEV1) (mean of 45 min and 15 min pre-dose) following 12 weeks of treatment in mild to moderate symptomatic COPD patients
