Efficacy and Safety of Alpha1-Proteinase Inhibitor (Human) Modified Process (Alpha-1 MP) in Subjects With Pulmonary Emphysema Due to Alpha1 Antitrypsin Deficiency (AATD)

This is a multi-center, randomized, placebo-controlled, double blind clinical study to assess the efficacy and safety of two separate dose regimens of Alpha-1 MP versus placebo for 156 weeks (i.e., 3 years) using computed tomography (CT) of the lungs as the main measure of efficacy. The two Alpha-1 MP doses ...

Examining the Genetic Factors That May Cause Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)

COPD is a disease in which the lung airways are damaged and partly obstructed, making it difficult to breathe. Millions of people in the United States have COPD, and it is the third leading cause of death in the United States. Symptoms include coughing, excess mucus production, shortness of breath, ...

Phase N/A

Sequential Endoscopic Lung Volume Reduction

Patients with heterogenous emphysema undergo ELVR, target lobe is the upper lobe right. After 6 weeks the middle lobe will be block too. Follow-up period 6 months Primary end points: FEV 1, 6-Minute walk test Secondary endpoints. Safety, Symptom scores Number of patients planned 30

Phase

Management of Patients With Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency Associated Emphysema

All patients who suffer from this disease are followed every 6 months during a 5 years period. FEV1 decline is the primary endpoint. Quality of life assessed using the Saint George's Respiratory Questionary is recorded too.

Phase N/A

Effect of Losartan on Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)

Losartan, an angiotensin receptor blocker, has been effective in preventing the development of emphysema and lung inflammation in animal models of COPD. Moreover, there is epidemiologic evidence that suggests that this drug may be effective in reducing COPD morbidity and mortality. This study will provide treatment with either losartan or ...

Phase

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 ...

Phase

In Vivo Endomicroscopic Description of Pulmonary Microcirculation in Systemic Sclerosis and Emphysema Patients

Systemic sclerosis (SSc) is a generalized disorder of connective tissue, arterioles and microvessels, characterized by the occurrence of fibrosis and vascular obliteration phenomena. The alterations in lung microvessels are found in pulmonary involvement of scleroderma, which are the most serious complications of the disease. In pulmonary emphysema, there are also ...

Phase N/A

Emphysema/COPD Research Registry

The Emphysema/COPD Research Center will enroll up to 3000 subjects at the University of Pittsburgh. The experimental procedures that will be conducted as a part of the Emphysema Research Registry include gathering basic personal information (e.g., name, address, phone number, etc.), asking basic screening questions (which may involve the examination ...
