Ventilation and Pulmonary Endothelium Toxicities of E-cigarettes: A Randomized Crossover Pilot Study

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and angiography (MRA) measures are promising approaches to detecting and characterizing the anticipated acute pulmonary toxicities of e-cigarettes. Hyperpolarized helium (3He)-enhanced MRI may be more sensitive than spirometry, a global lung function measure, for determination of airway toxicities. 3He-enhanced MRI has been used to demonstrate the ...


Safety Tolerability and Preliminary Efficacy of Adipose Derive Stem Cells for Patients With COPD

STUDY DESIGN This is a Phase I open- label single-dose study in subjects with significant COPD. This is an expanded safety cohort. The investigators will enroll a minimum of 30 subjects. 6 week data of FEV1, FEV1/FVC, DLCO and 6 min walking distance values will be collected in all patients ...


Autologous CD117+ Progenitor Cell Mobilization for Lung Transplantation

The investigators have developed a new therapy utilizing a stem cell found in the bone marrow that is defined by cell surface expression of the protein "cluster of differentiation antigen 117" (CD117). Studies utilizing these stem cells in a mouse heart transplant model have demonstrated significantly improved survival of transplanted ...


Effect of Statin Therapy on C-Reactive Protein Levels in Patients With Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease (COPD)

Patients with chronic obstructive lung disease (COPD) have an ongoing systemic inflammation, which can be assessed by measuring C-reactive protein (CRP). CRP is found to be a strong and independent predictor of future COPD outcomes. Statins are a class of cholesterol lowering drugs that decrease mortality from cardiovascular disease and ...


Hyperpolarized 129Xe MRI for Imaging Pulmonary Function

Non-invasive imaging of pulmonary function is expected to provide critical insights that are needed to spur progress in characterizing and treating chronic pulmonary diseases. The current primary diagnostic measure is pulmonary function testing (PFT), which was introduced in the mid-19th century, yet remains the standard of care today. PFTs have ...
