Two-Stage Study to Assess the Efficacy and Safety of 12 Weeks of Treatment With PEP03 in Patients With Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)

PEP03 is a new chemical entity developed as a highly selective, potent, and orally active 5-LO inhibitor. PEP03 exerts its action by blocking the generation of both cysteinyl LTs and LTB4. These LTs have been associated with the inflammatory response in the lung and with the clinical sequelae, including bronchospasm. ...


Investigation on the Role of Corticosteroids and Beta-Agonists on Cytokine Production in COPD Patients

Research on the synergistic effect of corticosteroids and beta-agonists on the cytokine production in COPD patients. Blood will be obtained from healthy volunteers and COPD patients and blood monocytes will be stimulated to produce cytokines with or without the prementioned drugs.

Phase N/A

Towards Restoring the Physiological Inhibition of Airway Narrowing in Asthma

Rationale. Asthma is associated with variable airways obstruction and airways inflammation. It is generally assumed that inflammatory mechanisms are promoting airway narrowing, by stimulating airway smooth muscle and by geometrical changes of the airway wall. Healthy subjects are very effectively protected against stimuli of airway narrowing, by mechanisms that are ...

Phase N/A

Metoprolol and Formoterol in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)

We want to study the effect of the combination of metoprolol (a beta-blocker) with formoterol (a beta-agonist) on long function in patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). There are more and more clues that a beta-blocker, when well chosen and in the right dosage, won't harm the long function ...


Inspiratory Muscle Training in Hypercapnic COPD

Inspiratory muscle training is known to improve inspiratory muscle strength, inspiratory muscle endurance and walking distance within six minutes in patients with neuromuscular and thoraco-restrictive disease as well as in patients with COPD. Studies have only been conducted in patients without established respiratory failure. COPD patients with respiratory failure though ...


Evaluation of the Effect of Roflumilast in Hyperinflated COPD Patients Using Functional Respiratory Imaging

In this study the efficacy of Roflumilast in addition to LAMA/LABA therapy will be assessed using Functional Respiratory Imaging. In total 40 Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patients, Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease (GOLD) stages C and D, who are stable on LABA/LAMA therapy and who are prone ...


Pilot Study of Physiological Effect of High-Flow Nasal Cannula on Respiratory Pattern and Work of Breathing

HFNC has been shown to have many advantages in the treatment of acutely hypoxemic patients, improving their clinical outcome. The exact mechanism underlying this beneficial effect is still not completely understood. Few studies have analyzed the effect of HFNC on ventilatory pattern and work of breathing. The majority of these ...

Phase N/A

Assessment of Switching From Salmeterol/Fluticasone to Indacaterol/Glycopyrronium in a symtomaticCOPD Patient Cohort

This study will investigate whether switching symptomatic COPD patients from a fixed-dose combination of salmeterol/fluticasone 50/500 µg b.i.d. to a fixed dose combination of QVA149 110/50 µg o.d. leads to improved lung function and airflow. It will also assess the effect on symptom burden, breathlessness, and use of rescue medication ...


A Study to Evaluate the Safety Efficacy and Changes in Induced Sputum and Blood Biomarkers Following Daily Repeat Doses of Inhaled GSK2269557 in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Subjects With Acute Exacerbation

The purpose of this study is to evaluate specific alterations in immune cell mechanisms related to neutrophil function as detected by PI3Kdelta-dependent changes in messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA) extracted from induced sputum in patients experiencing an exacerbation of COPD, with or without treatment with GSK2269557. The efficacy of treatment with ...


Seasonal Influenza Vaccine Quadrivalent Versus Trivalent in Patients With Advanced Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Primary Objectives: To evaluate the magnitude of the humoral immune responses to quadrivalent vs trivalent influenza vaccines in adults between the age of 50 and 64 years with a prior diagnosis of GOLD Stage C and D COPD (vs. those patients without COPD). To demonstrate immunogenicity by measuring hemagglutination inhibiting ...
