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 ...

Phase N/A

Transition From Pediatric to Adult Cystic Fibrosis Care Center

The main objective of register-SAFETIM is to assess the impact of the transition from pediatric to adult cystic fibrosis care center on changes in lung function and nutritional status of patients. This is a multicenter, observational, longitudinal, with analysis of the French national registry data of patients with cystic fibrosis. ...

Phase N/A

Muscle Accrual and Function in Cystic Fibrosis-Impact of Glucose Intolerance

Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is a lethal inherited disease that primarily affects the lungs but also confers a high risk of diabetes, with up to 40-50% of adults experiencing Cystic Fibrosis-related diabetes (CFRD). CFRD is associated with an accelerated decline in lung function, nutritional status and survival and despite treatment mortality ...

Phase N/A

Genetic Modifiers of Cystic Fibrosis Related Diabetes

The study is recruiting people with cystic fibrosis (CF). The medical record is being extracted, and a blood sample is taken for DNA. The DNA samples are tested for variation both at the CFTR gene (the CF gene) and over the entire rest of the genome. Using large numbers of ...

Phase N/A

Evaluation of the High Frequency Digit Triplet Test in Cystic Fibrosis

Patients will be identified from the clinic list of four Cystic Fibrosis centres (Nottingham University Hospitals NHS (National Health Service) Trust, adults and children, West Midlands Adult Cystic Fibrosis Centre and Birmingham Children's Hospital). In the first work stream patients 11 years old and over will answer some hearing screening ...

Phase N/A

Role of Innate Immunity in Non-Cystic Fibrosis Bronchiectasis

Prospective, observational study, which will include 50 patients with non-CF bronchiectasis who will be followed for a period of 12 months. A follow up control will be performed every three months to all patients, consisting in medical record, lung function tests, blood and serum collection, sputum analysis and culture, and ...

Phase N/A

Hyperpolarized Xenon Imaging in Patients With Cystic Fibrosis

Hyperpolarised gas MRI (3He and 129Xe) has enabled novel methods of in-vivo functional lung imaging that do not rely on the use of ionising radiation. Hyperpolarised 129Xe (HP Xe) MRI provides additional complementary information to 3He and 1H MRI and conventional lung imaging modalities. By virtue of its solubility, the ...

Phase N/A

Evaluation of the Impact of Intravenous Antibiotics on Muscular Strength in Patients With Cystic Fibrosis.

Background Peripheral muscle weakness and exercise intolerance are prevalent (56%) in cystic fibrosis (Trooster et al, 2009). Physical inactivity is likely to be an important underlying factor. Those conditions are associated with a poor prognosis (Nixon et al, 1992). The effect of intravenous antibiotherapy on peripheral muscle and physical activity ...

Phase N/A

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 ...
