Portal Hypertension and Systemic Endothelial Function

Prospective , monocentric study, with four groups of patients: Patients with cystic fibrosis and PHT Cystic fibrosis patients without PHT Patients free from cystic fibrosis with PHT from other causes Healthy controls. One study visit, no follow-up. During the visit the following examinations will be performed: Collection of a blood ...

Phase N/A

Clinical Effects of Exercise Program Added to Pulmonary Rehabilitation in Patients With Cystic Fibrosis

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is an autosomal recessive, multisystem involvement disease. The most important cause of mortality in CF is pulmonary complications. Prevention of pulmonary complications is only possible with pulmonary rehabilitation. Pulmonary rehabilitation methods used in CF are called airway cleaning techniques that include postural drainage, breathing techniques and use ...

Phase N/A

Evaluation of the Lung Clearance Index

It is mandatory to detect as early as possible lung CF disease in the young child with CF to initiate active therapies limiting irreversible lesions. Lung Clearance Index (LCI) which evaluates gas clearance from the alveolar volume is an easy to-do technique in pre-school children. Main objective To evaluate correlation ...

Phase N/A

Longitudinal Pathogen-colonization in Cystic Fibrosis Airways and Ability to Smell

The sub-study on the sense of smelling in CF has been finalized in the meantime. Results were published in 2012: Smell in cystic fibrosis. Lindig J, Steger C, Beiersdorf N, Michl R, Beck JF, Hummel T, Mainz JG. Eur Arch Otorhinolaryngol. 2013 Mar;270(3):915-21. doi: 10.1007/s00405-012-2124-2. Epub 2012 Aug 14.

Phase N/A

Program Of Exercises During The Hospitalization Of Children And Adolescents With Cystic Fibrosis

The objective of the study is to evaluate the effect of a protocol of physical exercises on the functional capacity of children and adolescents with cystic fibrosis, hospitalized, in the stage of exacerbation of the disease. In the first 48 hours of hospitalization patients and their caregivers will be invited ...

Phase N/A

Surrogate Markers of Response to New Therapies in Cystic Fibrosis Patients

This study is based upon the hypothesis that clinical response of cystic fibrosis patients to CFTR modulators is correlated to in vitro responses to these drugs of epithelial cells derived from the patients, as assessed by CFTR-dependent Chloride secretion. Epithelial cells will be derived either from nasal or rectal epithelia, ...

Phase N/A

Impaired Secretory IgA and Mucosal Immunity in Cystic Fibrosis

Impaired secretory IgA and mucosal immunity in cystic fibrosis: role of CFTR-related epithelial changes in the regulation of pIgR-mediated IgA transcytosis and contribution to lung pathology and impaired defence against bacterial infections. PROJECT DESCRIPTION Cystic fibrosis (CF) represents the most common lethal autosomal recessive disorder in the white population, mainly ...

Phase N/A

A Multi-Center Study of the CF Quantum Sweat Test System

The primary objective is to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of a new sweat test method in both normal individuals and individuals with CF or cystic fibrosis related metabolic syndrome (CRMS). Subject participation is for one day and duration of study for each subject is one day. No follow-up will be ...

Phase N/A

Fidgety Movements in Cystic Fibrosis

Very low birth weight infants who are at risk for chronic lung diseases may also be at risk for brain anomalies such as increased echogenicity, leukomalacia and intracranial hemorrhage. Infants with bronchopulmonary dysplasia have been reported to have worse neurodevelopmental outcomes than healthy infants. It has also been pointed out ...

Phase N/A

MRI as a Means to Measure Lung Function: Non-Invasive Imaging in Neonates and Children

The purpose of this study is to develop rapid MRI techniques for imaging the lung with hyperpolarized helium-3 gas as an inhaled contrast agent. These techniques will be piloted in adults and older children before testing them in younger children and infants. The purpose is to enable imaging of non-sedated ...
