Ocular Surface Changes in Patients With Cystic Fibrosis

The aim: To assess the role of chosen parameters of immunological response in the induction of ocular changes in cystic fibrosis patients, particularly chosen chemokine concentrations in the tear fluid and analysis of chosen apoptotic markers expression on conjunctival epithelial cells.

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 ...

Nutritional Metabolic and Respiratory Status in Cystic Fibrosis

Diabetes is a important complication of cystic fibrosis (CF). The improved life expectancy of patients with cystic fibrosis, as a result of advances in medical therapy, has resulted in an increasing prevalence of cystic fibrosis-related diabetes (CFRD). CFRD is associated with accelerated pulmonary decline and increased mortality. Pulmonary effects are ...

Phase N/A

Tissue Bank for Pulmonary Diseases

The aim of this research study is to collect and store the specimens that are left over after patients undergo tests ordered by their physicians. These specimens will be used at a later time by researchers in the Pulmonary Division to develop a better understanding of pulmonary diseases or for ...

Nasal Potential Difference (NPD) for the Diagnosis of Cystic Fibrosis

Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is an autosomal recessive systemic disorder of exocrine glands and secretory epithelia. The disease results from mutations in the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) gene which cause a variety of abnormalities. CFTR is absent or dysfunctional in cystic fibrosis. Most of the defects in CFTR result ...

Investigating Mucinase Activity in Airway Disease

Accumulation of mucus in the airway involves the process of overproduction and reduced clearance of mucin glycoproteins. To date, little attention has been focused on mechanisms of mucin clearance from the airway. We hypothesize that there is enzymatic degradation of mucins ("mucinase activity") in the airway, which acts to break ...

Phase N/A

Pharmacokinetics of Linezolid in Children With Cystic Fibrosis

Patients with cystic fibrosis who have pulmonary exacerbations associated with the isolation of MRSA in their sputum will be identified by their primary physicians and by laboratory record review. If they meet the inclusion criteria, they will be invited to participate in the study. The primary outcome variables include pharmacokinetic ...

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 ...

Multi Breath Nitrogen Washout (MBNW) as a Measure of Small Airway Function in Patients With Respiratory Disease

It is well documented that there are significant ventilatory changes in respiratory diseases such as cystic fibrosis, asthma and the onset of bronchiolitis obliterans syndrome (BOS) following chronic rejection of lung transplantation. At present, we use measures such as spirometry and lung biopsies to determine the changes of airway function ...

Treatment of Metabolic Alkalosis in Acute Exacerbations of Cystic Fibrosis

Background: Hypochloremic hypovolemic metabolic alkalosis contributes to hypercapnia in acute exacerbations of cystic fibrosis. Treatment of the metabolic alkalosis with volume and sodium chloride (NaCl) replacement could reduce hypoventilation and hypercapnia, thereby improving symptoms, sleep patterns and daytime activity level. This would avoid unnecessary treatment with non-invasive ventilation. Hypothesis: Volume ...
