Short-and Long-term Effects of a Home-based Rehabilitation Program in Patients With Bronchiectasis

Home-based pulmonary rehabilitation (HBPR) has been used in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, asthma and pulmonary fibrosis. Results from HBPR have been similar to those observe in the outpatient pulmonary rehabilitation such improvement in exercise capacity, symptoms and quality of life. However, HBPR has not yet been investigated in ...

Clinimetric Properties of Outcome Measures in Bronchiectasis in the UK

Bronchiectasis is a persistent or progressive condition characterised by dilated thick-walled bronchi. The recent guidelines stipulate that high resolution computerised tomography scan (HRCT) is the radiological investigation of choice to establish the diagnosis of bronchiectasis. The key radiological features of bronchiectasis include bronchial wall dilation (internal lumen diameter greater than ...

Genetics of Primary Ciliary Dyskinesia

The investigators have established a Consortium of 9 geographically-dispersed clinical research sites to study rare disease of the airways, including Primary Ciliary Dyskinesia (PCD). PCD is a genetic disorder with defective mucociliary clearance (MCC), sinus and pulmonary disease with chronic infection, and organs located on the wrong side of the ...

Role of NLRP3 Inflammasone and Hypoxia in the Severity of Osteoporosis in Patients With Bronchiectasis

80 patients with proven bronchiectasis, diagnosed by high-resolution computed tomography (HRCT), will be recruited from our outpatient clinic of Chang Gung Memorial Hospital with written informed consent. Inclusion criteria are: daily sputum > 10 ml; absence of asthma or other unstable systemic diseases; and "steady-state" bronchiectasis (< 10% alteration of ...

Tayside Rehabilitation in Bronchiectasis Exacerbations (TRIBE) : a Randomized Controlled Trial

Background: Pulmonary rehabilitation is an effective treatment after exacerbations of COPD to prevent future exacerbations and to improve breathlessness and quality of life. Its effectiveness after exacerbations of bronchiectasis has never been demonstrated. Aims: To determine if a 6 week course of pulmonary rehabilitation improves exercise capacity at 8 weeks ...

Multiple Breath Washout a Clinimetric Dataset

Lung Clearance Index (LCI) has been shown to be more sensitive and perhaps more applicable in early stages of lung disease when compared to currently utilised physiological outcome measures, and yet it is not approved by regulatory agencies as a recognised surrogate outcome measure. This may highlight some of the ...

Phase N/A

Evaluation Of The Lung Microbiome In NTM Bronchiectasis

A biomarker cohort study design is proposed to study whether specific airway microbiota alterations are associated with pulmonary Non-tuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) disease. In a cohort of 200 subjects suspected of having pulmonary NTM disease, the investigators will evaluate the airway microbiome using an aliquot of the induced sputum and upper ...

International Prospective Patient Registry for Primary Ciliary Dyskinesia (PCD)

Main objective is to establish an international prospective registry for Primary Ciliary Dyskinesia (PCD) for systematic data collection on incidence, clinical presentation, treatment and course of the disease.This will allow to monitor trends in diagnosis, management and outcomes and will show how efforts to improve diagnosis and treatments will change ...

Phase N/A

Cardiovascular Comorbidities and Bronchiectasis

Phenotype of the lung disease will include: spirometry, plethysmography, DLCO measurement according to the ATS/ERS guideline. 6M walking test and echocardiography will be also performed. Frequency of comorbidities will be calculated with data from questionnaire as well as standardized explorations. Aging related manifestations will be measured: arterial stiffness using aortic ...

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 ...
