Comparison of Physical Activity Level Between Patients With Bronchiectasis and Healthy Subjects

Physical activity limitation in chronic respiratory diseases is caused by many factors including respiratory, hemodynamic, and peripheral muscle weakness. Bronchiectasis is characterized by irreversible widening of the medium-sized airways, with inflammation, chronic bacterial infection and destruction of the bronchial walls. In addition to pulmonary function worsening, extra pulmonary features such ...

Phase N/A

Aetiology of Children With Bronchiectasis in China

This study is divided into two parts. Part I. Retrospective review the 10 years medical records of the children with bronchiectasis from every center, and investigate the etiology of the cases by the standard diagnostic process. Part II. All new cases of bronchiectasis which was confirmed diagnosed at every center ...

Phase N/A

Registry for Primary Ciliary Dyskinesia

In order to better characterize the clinical course, and improve the diagnosis and treatment of PCD, the investigators propose to establish a provincial PCD registry in Alberta. This registry will be securely linked to the currently existing International Registry for PCD and will allow more researchers to use the information ...

Natural History of Bronchiectasis

Bronchiectasis, or abnormal dilation of the airways, is a condition typically characterized by chronic and recurring respiratory tract infections. Frequently, depending on the underlying cause, these infections involve the entire respiratory tract resulting in sinus, ear, and lung disease. This condition used to be more common in children prior to ...

Phase N/A

Pain Mechanisms in Patients With Bronchiectasis

Background and objective: Recent findings suggest that pain can play an important role in terms of physical activity limitation in respiratory patients. Nevertheless, pain mechanisms and their clinical impact in patients with bronchiectasis have not been investigated yet. The objective of the observational study is to determine the somatosensorial profile ...

Etiologies Investigations and Outcomes of Patients Presenting With Hemoptysis

RATIONALE Hemoptysis, mild or massive, is worrisome for both patients and physicians. The management is different depending on the causes, which are not well defined for the North American population. Despite the fact that this symptom is commonly reported in clinic, there are only a few studies published on this ...

Phase N/A

Bacteriology and Inflammation in Bronchiectasis

Bronchiectasis is a chronic disease arises from progressive airway inflammation and infection. Pro-inflammatory mediators, the products of activated neutrophils recruited to the inflamed sites, are released in bronchiectatic airways and mediate cascades of neutrophil infiltration. This suggests that bacterial infection plays a pivotal role in the neutrophil-derived inflammation leading to ...

Phase N/A

Longitudinal Study of Helium-3 and Xenon-129 Magnetic Resonance Imaging

COPD patients will be stratified into four groups: Gold Stage 0, Gold Stage I, Gold Stage II, and Gold Stage III. During a single 2-2 hour visit, patient subjects will perform some or all of: 1) spirometry pre-and-post salbutamol and plethysmography, Lung Clearance Index, Airway Oscillometry (Airwave Oscillometry measures the ...

Phase N/A

Bronchiectasis Research Registry

The Bronchiectasis Research Registry is a consolidated database of non-cystic fibrosis (non-CF) Bronchiectasis and Nontuberculosis Mycobacteria (NTM) patients from multiple clinical institutions. The goal of the Bronchiectasis Research Registry is to support collaborative research and assist in the planning of multi-center clinical trials for the treatment of NTM and non-CF ...

Phase N/A

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 ...
