Biomarkers of Iron Homeostasis and Responses to Cystic Fibrosis Pulmonary Exacerbation (CFPE) Treatment

The goal of this study is to identify chemical compounds in the blood and sputum (i.e., biomarkers) that are associated with objective measurements of health status in patients with cystic fibrosis (CF). This study builds upon observations that blood levels of hepcidin-25, a protein that regulates how the body uses ...

Phase N/A

Continuous Glucose Monitoring in Controls With and Without Cystic Fibrosis

Current guidelines on the diagnoses and management of cystic fibrosis (CF) related diabetes recommend treatment for diabetes based on diagnostic criteria derived from adults with type 2 diabetes. Increasing evidence supports treating early glucose abnormalities in cystic fibrosis patients to target CF specific outcomes, including lung function and nutrition (BMI-Body ...

Phase N/A

Non Invasive Ventilation for Acute Exacerbations in Adult CF

Design: The study will use a mixed methodology and it will be in 2 phases. Phase I A group randomised controlled trial The following measurements will be performed on days 1, 3, 7, 10, 14 and twice weekly until discharge The exact timing of measurements will be planned by the ...

Phase N/A

Effects of a Partially Supervised Conditioning Program in CF

Physical activity and exercise have become an accepted and valued component of Cystic Fibrosis care. Regular physical activity and exercise can slow the rate of decline of pulmonary function, improve physical fitness, and enhance quality of life. However, motivating people to be more active is challenging. Supervised exercise programs are ...

Phase N/A

The Use of Home Oral Glucose Tolerance Test Kit in Screening Cystic Fibrosis Related Diabetes

Cystic fibrosis related diabetes (CFRD) is the most common secondary complication of Cystic fibrosis. It affects nearly 20% of adolescents and 40-50% of adults. Undiagnosed CFRD is associated with significant decline in lung function and nutritional status with an increase in mortality. This emphasises the importance of screening for CFRD ...

Phase N/A

Initial and Chronic Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA) Infection in Cystic Fibrosis (CF)

This is an observational, translational study examined bacterial morphology and function prevs. post antibiotic therapy in patients with CF who experience a pulmonary exacerbation that requires IV antibiotics. All clinical care is dictated by the treating physician(s). Inclusion criteria: Male or female with a confirmed diagnosis of CF (by sweat ...

Phase N/A

Cystic Fibrosis Diagnosis by Analyzing Nasal Brushing

Autosomal recessive, CF is caused by mutations in the CFTR gene whose nature determines the clinical expression and severity of the disease affecting mainly the respiratory, digestive and genital. Respiratory pathology is mainly responsible for the morbidity and mortality of patients with cystic fibrosis. CFTR, which is ion channel carrying ...

Phase N/A

Gaming Console Home-Based Exercise for Adults With Cystic Fibrosis

Physical activity and exercise have become an accepted and valued component of cystic fibrosis care. Regular physical activity and exercise can slow the rate of decline of pulmonary function, improve physical fitness, and enhance quality of life. However, motivating people to be more active is challenging. Supervised, facility-based exercise programs ...

Phase N/A

Hyperpolarized Xenon MRI in Cystic Fibrosis Pulmonary Exacerbations

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is one of the most common genetic diseases affecting children and young adults [1]. Lung disease is the primary cause of morbidity and mortality in these patients and sensitive markers of lung disease in CF are important for directing therapy in these patients. LCI, measured by multiple ...

Phase N/A

Standardized Treatment of Pulmonary Exacerbations II

The study will assess the non-inferiority of 10 days versus 14 days treatment duration among patients who have an early robust improvement (ERR subjects) and the superiority of 21 days versus 14 days treatment duration among the subjects who do not meet the definition of ERR (non-ERR; NERR). Subjects will ...
