Low Load High-repetitive Elastic Band Resistance Training in COPD

Recent work have shown that low load, high-repetitive single limb resistance training, if compared to a control, can increase limb muscle function and functional exercise capacity in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) while avoiding the occurrence of limiting exertional symptoms. However, no comparison to another exercise regimen have ...

Phase N/A

Clinical Impact of Fungal Domestic Environmental Exposure on COPD Patients

The investigators will focus on both the patient and its domestic environment. More precisely, for 80 patients, the investigators will measure mould domestic exposure (determination of mould frequency during an environmental investigation at the patient's home), search for mould sensitization and colonization (complete bio clinical check-up including spirometry, inflammatory and ...

Phase N/A

Outcomes Data of Adipose Stem Cells to Treat Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

The purpose of this study is to determine the impact that treatment with a cellular concentrate derived from an individual's own fat, known as the stromal vascular fraction (SVF), has on the quality of life of people with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). SVF contains multiple cellular components, including stem ...

Determinants of Onset and Progression of COPD in Young Adults

COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) is a Public Health problem due to its impact in the patient's quality of life, high prevalence, growing incidence and socioeconomic implication. COPD natural history and first stages determinants are unknown. Knowing them will help to understand the natural history of the disease and to ...

Phase N/A

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 ...

Phase

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 ...
