Home-Based Health Management of COPD Patients

Minnesota HealthSolutions Corporation (MHS) proposes to develop and evaluate a program to motivate and monitor people with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) to complete home exercise as part of pulmonary rehabilitation (PR). The proposed system has two components: home-based activity monitoring and health coaching. The investigators will conduct a randomized, ...


Reduction of Corticosteroid Use in Outpatient Treatment of Exacerbated COPD

Background Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a major public health issue with no curative treatment. In Switzerland estimated 5-7% of the total population are suffering from this chronic disease. According to current guidelines corticosteroids are part of treatment of acute exacerbations in COPD patients. Several studies suggest that corticosteroids ...

Phase N/A

Effect of Aclidinium/Formoterol on Nighttime Lung Function and Morning Symptoms in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

STUDY DESIGN: This will be a randomized, placebo-controlled crossover study where patients will receive an evening dose of either aclidinium/formoterol (ACL/FOR) or placebo after steady-state conditions on twice-daily ACL/FOR have been established. Patients will continue to take the same dosage of inhaled corticosteroid (ICS) as they did prior to study ...


A Phase 2a Study to Assess Safety Daily Symptoms Pharmacokinetics (PK) and Biomarkers of YPL-001 in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Patients

This is a Phase 2a, proof-of-concept, multicenter, randomized, double-blind, double dummy, 3-treatment, parallel study, with low and high YPL 001 doses (low dose and high dose twice daily [BID]) and a placebo control in moderate to severe Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) patients.


Bronchoprotection of Salbutamol in Asthma and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

In asthma, the administration (inhalation) of a selective 2 receptor agonist (e.g. salbutamol), prior to methacholine challenge has been shown to shift the dose response curve to the right and "bronchoprotect" the airway against airway smooth muscle contraction. The extent of 2 receptor agonist bronchoprotection in COPD is unknown. Airway ...


Intervention Study to Investigate Supplemental Oxygen in COPD

Study design The study will employ a parallel design for 6 months including 144 patients (72 patients/group). Patients will be randomized to intervention or control group. The intervention comprises supplemental oxygen to be used during physical activity for 6 months. The control group will receive the same physical activity instructions ...

Phase N/A

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 ...


Patients With Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease at Altitude - Effect of Nocturnal Oxygen on Breathing and Sleep

Patients with moderate to severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease living below 800 m will be invited to participate in a randomized, cross-over field trial evaluating the hypothesis that nocturnal breathing and sleep during nights spent at moderate altitude are improved by oxygen therapy via a nasal cannula compared to room ...


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 ...


Aerosure and Six Minute Walk Distance in Severe COPD

To investigate whether high frequency airflow oscillation (HFAO), delivered using Aerosure, increases six minute walk distance (6MWD) and reduces exertional breathlessness in patients with severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
