Clinical and Basic Investigations Into Hermansky-Pudlak Syndrome

Hermansky-Pudlak Syndrome (HPS) is a rare autosomal recessive disease consisting of oculocutaneous albinism, a platelet storage pool defect and, in some patients, lysosomal accumulation of ceroid lipofuscin. Other manifestations include pulmonary fibrosis (often fatal in the fourth or fifth decade), chronic granulomatous colitis and, rarely, renal involvement or cardiomyopathy. There ...

Phase N/A

Segmental Bronchoalveolar Lavage

This protocol proposes to perform bronchoalveolar lavage, bronchial brushing and bronchial wall biopsy in research volunteers and in patients with pulmonary disease to evaluate the cellular components of normal and diseased lungs. This research study will help to improve our understanding of pathogenic mechanisms in the lung during progression of ...

Phase N/A

Procurement and Analysis of Specimens From Individuals With Pulmonary Fibrosis

The etiology of pulmonary fibrosis is unknown. Analyses of blood, genomic DNA, and specimens procured by bronchoscopy, lung biopsy, lung transplantation, clinically-indicated extra-pulmonary biopsies, or post-mortem examination from individuals with this disorder may contribute to our understanding of the pathogenic mechanisms of pulmonary fibrosis. The purpose of this protocol is ...

Phase N/A

Blood Collection From Individuals With Lung Disease for Genetic Studies

The investigators hope to be able to identify an association between a genetic make-up in the blood samples and the risks of developing a particular lung disease, or severity of a lung disease. The findings of this study might be important to develop future preventative methods and potential treatments for ...

Phase N/A

Genomic and Proteomic Analysis of Disease Progression in Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF)

People who are diagnosed with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis are asked to participate in this study. The subject must be treated at the Dorothy P. and Richard P. Simmons Center for Interstitial Lung Disease. Subjects, if consented, are required to perform tests so that research data can be collected. At the ...

Phase N/A

Explanted Lung Tissues With Pulmonary Fibrosis

Pulmonary Fibrosis involves scarring of the lung. Gradually, the air sacs of the lungs become replaced by fibrotic tissue. The most current thinking is that the fibrotic process is a reaction to tiny injury to the lung. When the scar forms, the tissue becomes thicker causing a permanent loss of ...

Phase N/A

Pennsylvania Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis Research Registry

The University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, Dorothy P. & Richard P. Simmons Center for Interstitial Lung Disease is the coordination center for the Pennsylvania Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis Statewide Research Registry, the collaborative institutions include: the University of Pennsylvania Health System, Geisinger Health System, and Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical ...

Phase N/A

Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis Registry for Future Studies

To establish a framework in which biologic samples and physiologic measures from patients with IPF can be longitudinally collected and evaluated. Having a bank of samples that are correlated with physiologic measures that follow patients through their course will allow the following proposed studies as well as future investigations to ...
