Found (21) clinical trials

This is a randomized, double-blind, multi-center, parallel group study to assess the efficacy and safety of BGF MDI 320/14.4/9.6 μg and BGF MDI 160/14.4/9.6 μg relative to GFF MDI 14.4/9.6 μg and BFF MDI 320/9.6 μg over a 52-week treatment period in 8,000 subjects with moderate to very severe COPD ...


Functional Respiratory Imaging Study (FRI)

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of inhaled extrafine CHF5993 pMDI on airway volumes, and resistance, by Functional Respiratory Imaging (FRI), in COPD patients


Pulmonary Embolism as a Cause of COPD Exacerbations

The primary objective is to demonstrate the clinical benefits of an active strategy for the diagnosis and treatment of PE compared to usual care in patients with unexplained exacerbations of COPD who require hospital admission. The secondary objective is to assess the safety of an active strategy for the diagnosis ...


Initiation of Long-term Non-invasive Ventilation in COPD

COPD is a chronic disease with high mortality and morbidity worldwide. Patients with end-stage COPD frequently develop CHRF associated with end-of-life. In that stage of disease, treatment options are limited. Long-term nocturnal NIV has been applied in patients with chronic alveolar hypoventilation for decades. While there is no doubt that ...


Targeted Retreatment of COPD Exacerbations

COPD is a long term lung condition where patients suffer recurrent symptom flare-ups, called 'exacerbations'. Patients who have lots of exacerbations have a worse quality of life, poorer ability to breath, and may die earlier than those who don't. Previous research by our group has shown that patients who have ...


Symptom-driven Maintenance and Reliever Treatment to Prevent Exacerbations in COPD

Rationale: Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a leading cause of death worldwide and its morbidity and mortality are still rising. A symptom-driven maintenance and reliever therapy (SMART) with budesonide/formoterol is a frequently used treatment strategy in asthma. Several studies have shown that the SMART approach effectively reduces the number ...


BACE Trial Substudy 1 - PROactive Substudy

Physical activity is strongly reduced with exacerbations and failure to increase physical activity is associated with relapse. In addition, physical inactivity is known to be associated with cardiovascular and metabolic morbidity and is one of the strongest predictors of mortality in COPD. Apart from potential direct effects of the intervention ...


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


Detection of Circulating Endothelial Progenitors Cells (EPCs) in Non-small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC)

The aim of this study is to study blood circulating levels bone-marrow-derived progenitor cells (EPCS). In a first phase, EPCs will be detected in healthy non-smokers volunteers to validate flow cytometry method (n=25). In addition, EPC will e characterized by primary cultures to analyze EPC-specific markers. In a second phase, ...


Early Pulmonary Rehabilitation Following Acute COPD Exacerbation

Background: Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), also sometimes known as chronic asthma, bronchitis or emphysema, is an important health problem. Many people with COPD are admitted into hospital with a worsening of their symptoms, known as an exacerbation. Hospitalisations for acute exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are a ...
