Found (156) clinical trials

Dr. Craig LaForce and Dr. Karen Dunn are recruiting individuals 40 years and up who suffer from COPD, emphysema or Chronic bronchitis to participate in a research study, involving an investigational medication.

Phase N/A

We are looking for individuals to participate in a research study to determine the safety and efficacy of an investigational medication. Eligibility Criteria: If you are: - 40 years of age or older - are a previous or current smoker - have a diagnosis of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) ...

Phase N/A

This research study may be an option if you:  • Are at least 40 years of age • Have been diagnosed with moderate COPD for at least 12 months • Are a current smoker or were a smoker who quit at least 6 months prior to screening        ...

Phase N/A

This is a placebo controlled trial to test the efficacy and safety of CHF 5259 (glycopyrronium bromide). This is an 8 week treatment trial.

Collection of Airway Blood and/or Urine Specimens From Subjects for Research Studies

This is a protocol to obtain blood, urine and/or airway specimens from normal individuals and individuals with lung disorders in order to carry out laboratory studies looking at genetic expression, gene transfer, infection, proteins, human genes, and to store specimens for future genetic studies. Specimens collected may include blood, urine ...

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 ...

Phase

Summer-Winter Variability in the Level of Physical Activity in Daily Life in Brazilian and Belgian Patients With COPD

The sample will be composed by at least 20 patients with moderate-severe COPD from each institution involved (Catholic University of Leuven, Belgium and State University of Londrina, Brazil), adding up to 40 patients (see sample size calculation below). However, the sample size could be increased if necessary to achieve intermediate ...

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

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

Metabolic Changes in Patients With Chronic Cardiopulmonary Disease

This study aims to evaluate prevalence of sarcopenia and cachexia in patients with chronic cardiopulmonary disease. The investigators will also investigate metabolic disorders like glucose metabolism, presence of metabolic syndrome, body composition and histological changes in skeletal muscle and body fat. Finally, patients will be followed for clinical endpoints.
