Chen-style Tai Chi in Pulmonary Rehabilitation for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

This study will evaluate the effects of Chen-style Tai Chi compared to conventional exercise in pulmonary rehabilitation for COPD patients. Half of participants will receive the Chen-style Tai Chi intervention, while the other half will receive the conventional exercise intervention. Both groups will receive the same eduction and support during ...

Phase N/A

Improvement of Sleep Quality by RePneu Coils in Advanced Pulmonary Emphysema

Improvement of sleep quality in emphysema patients is desirable. Yet, there are no data of patients treated with RePneu coils. This monocenter prospective study investigates the effect on sleep quality of RePneu coils for reduction of dynamic hyperinflation in advanced disease stages of pulmonary emphysema. Patient's sleep will be studied ...

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 ...


Physiological Study of Minimally Invasive ECCO2R in Exacerbations of COPD Requiring Invasive Mechanical Ventilation

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is currently the fourth leading cause of death in the U.S. and is expected to become the third leading cause of death in 2020. Morbidity and mortality in COPD result largely of acute exacerbations, which are responsible for 1.5 million ED visits and 750,000 hospitalizations ...

Phase N/A

Evaluation of a Multi-professional Breathlessness Service for Patients With Breathlessness Due to Any Advanced Disease

Breathlessness is a common and distressing symptom in patients with advanced diseases like cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), chronic heart failure (CHF) or lung fibrosis, which broadly impacts on patients' quality of life and may result in high burden for carers. This single-blinded randomized controlled fast track trial evaluates ...

Phase N/A

Validation of Structured Light Plethysmography - Health and Disease

The investigators hypothesize that SLP may be a useful tool to differentiate between different respiratory diseases. To further examine differences in disease and health, and between diseases SLP measurements will be recorded in a range of diagnostic conditions that effect breathing and in healthy normal subjects. This is a non-randomised ...

Phase N/A

QVA Mechanistic Efficacy Study (Receptor Effects Etc)

Current physiological measures of small airway dysfunction are limited, subject to a high degree of variability and do not allow a quantitative assessment of global and regional ventilation defects. The MRI approach represents an opportunity to better understand the impact of a potent dual bronchodilator on the small and central ...


A Study to Assess the Effect of CK-2127107 on Physical Function in Subjects With Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Enrolled participants will be randomly assigned to 1 of 2 treatment sequences and will receive both CK-2127107 and matching placebo over 2 treatment periods.


COPD Online Rehabilitation (CORe)

International and national publications emphasize that COPD rehabilitation is a key cornerstone in the standard treatment of COPD, based on more than 15 years of research in COPD rehabilitation. COPD rehabilitation improves quality of life, anxiety and depression and physical function. COPD rehabilitation including special physical training, patient-directed education and ...


A Multicenter Randomized Double-blind Clinical Study Evaluated the Safety Pharmacokinetic and Pharmacodynamic Characteristics of Roflumilast in COPD Patients

Roflumilast is a product which has been approved for the treatment of severe chronic obstructive lung disease (COPD) and its approved dose is 500μg once daily. This study is primarily designed to see whether alternation in this dose can improve tolerability of Roflumilast in COPD patients. Therefore one in three ...
