Trial of Concurrent Versus Sequential Tamoxifen With Radiotherapy in Breast Cancer Patients

Two hundred and sixty patients with breast cancer will be accrued into the study. After inclusion in the study, all the patients will be randomized into two arms. Arm 1 will receive Tamoxifen given concurrently with radiotherapy while in Arm 2 radiotherapy will be given followed by tamoxifen sequentially. The ...

Autologous CD117+ Progenitor Cell Mobilization for Lung Transplantation

The investigators have developed a new therapy utilizing a stem cell found in the bone marrow that is defined by cell surface expression of the protein "cluster of differentiation antigen 117" (CD117). Studies utilizing these stem cells in a mouse heart transplant model have demonstrated significantly improved survival of transplanted ...

Patients With Pulmonary Hypertension or Interstitial Lung Disease at Altitude - Effect of Oxygen on Breathing and Sleep

Patients with pulmonary hypertension or with interstitial lung disease living below 800 m will be invited to participate in a randomized, cross-over field trial evaluating the hypotheses that: a), breathing and sleep during a 2 day sojourn at moderate altitude are impaired in comparison to low altitude; b), breathing and ...

Study to Test the Validity of the Treatment of Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis With Cotrimoxazole

Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a chronic lung disease that is clinically manifested by the appearance of effort dyspnea and impaired lung function. The natural history of the disease is poorly understood and there is no clear consensus as to the most appropriate markers for predicting patient outcome. This pilot ...

High Oxygen Delivery to Preserve Exercise Capacity in Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis Patients Treated With Nintedanib

Pulmonary rehabilitation is a structured evidence-based exercise and education intervention that is recommended for most patients with IPF. Pulmonary rehabilitation improves functional capacity (6-minute walk distance [6MWD]), breathlessness and quality of life in patients, however these benefits are often modest and only temporary. Nintedanib is an antifibrotic medication that has ...

Azathioprine and Prednisone in the Treatment of Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis

We will evaluate all adult patients consecutively referred from March 2005 to the Instituto Nacional del Tórax (Thorax National Institute), Santiago, Chile for diagnostic evaluation of Pulmonary Fibrosis. The routine evaluation will include, when indicated, the following steps: - History: - Age - Genre - Duration of symptoms before first ...

Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension Secondary to Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis And Treatment With Sildenafil

Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH) in the setting of Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis(IPF)is a risk factor for morbidity and mortality in the peri-lung transplant(LT) setting. Currently there is no significant data to support the use of pulmonary vasodilators for PAH in the setting of interstitial lung disease such as IPF. The majority ...

Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension Secondary to Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis and Treatment With Bosentan

Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH) in the setting of Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis(IPF)is a risk factor for morbidity and mortality in the peri-lung transplant(LT) setting. Currently there is no significant data to support the use of pulmonary vasodilators for PAH in the setting of interstitial lung disease such as IPF. The majority ...

Treprostinil Therapy For Patients With Interstitial Lung Disease And Severe Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension

Our hypothesis is that IV or SQ Treprostinil can improve 6 minute walk distance, hemodynamics and quality of life in patients with interstitial lung disease and severe secondary pulmonary arterial hypertension.

Assessment of Heart and Heart-Lung Transplant Patient Outcomes Following Pulmonary Rehabilitation

At present, a specific community based rehabilitation programme for lung or heart-lung transplant recipients does not exist. 160 hospitals throughout the United Kingdom (UK) offer pulmonary rehabilitation programmes. The programmes operate under evidence-based guidelines as outlined by the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy. Increasing evidence shows that rehabilitation programmes help improve ...
