Clinical Trial of Air Cleaners to Improve Indoor Air Quality and COPD Health

This research is being done to learn whether an air cleaner intervention to improve home air quality (particulate matter (PM) and nitrogen dioxide (NO2) reduction) will improve respiratory symptoms, quality of life, lung function, and reduce risk of exacerbations in former smokers with COPD. The investigators will place air pollution ...

Phase N/A

Computed Tomography Assessment of Regional Ventilation (CURVE)

CT scans during breathing in and breathing out (CTPVe) can assess regional airflow within the lung, using newly developed software as described by Aliverti et al. This provides information about the function of each part of the lung. The investigators aim to assess the feasibility of a larger trial using ...

Phase N/A

Chest Wall Motion Analysis in Disease

Optoelectronic plethysmography (OEP) is based on the analysis during breathing of the trajectories of a series of markers positioned on the thoracic-abdominal surface of the patient. The positions in space of these markers are recorded and processed with mathematical models and algorithms by a computing unit that can accurately measure ...

Patient Characteristics and Treatment Modalities in COPD Patients in China

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a complex disease characterized by multiple clinical manifestations as well as co-morbidities. While COPD subjects have traditionally been classified based solely on airflow limitation (forced expiratory volume in one second [FEV1]), a new classification system was introduced in the year of 2011 by the ...

Phase N/A

COPD-Related Physiology and the Brain

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is the 3rd leading cause of morbidity and mortality in the US with increasing prevalence in older adults. The impact of COPD on the brain is an area of expanding research interest. A staggering 40-60% of patients with COPD have cognitive impairments including deficits in ...

Phase N/A

Feasibility and Effect of a Follow up Tele-rehabilitation Program for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease vs. Standard Follow up

Intro To guarantee chronic patients and elderly a high quality service from health care organizations in the coming decades, new technologies has been implemented to treat patients from a distance. This document reflects the latest research studies based on tele-rehabilitation (TR), its application in chronic lung diseases and the topics ...

Phase N/A

Monitoring and Peer Support to Improve Treatment Adherence and Outcomes

The O2VERLAP study focuses on a subset of the Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (i.e. COPD) community that are also living with a diagnosis of Sleep Apnea (i.e. SA); having a diagnosis of both COPD and SA is referred to as Overlap Syndrome (i.e. OS). There are about 300 million people ...

Phase N/A

Predicting Risk Factors for Exacerbation of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are unfavourable events in the course of disease for most COPD patients. Published evidence indicates a significant impact of exacerbations, especially if frequent, on patients' health-related quality of life (HRQL), disease progression, mortality, health care utilisation and costs. However, the severity,evolution and outcome ...

Phase N/A

Oral -Alanine Supplementation in Patients With COPD

Preliminary evidence suggest that patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) suffer from lower-limb muscle dysfunction. This may, at least in part, be due to a combination of physical inactivity and muscle oxidative stress. Pilot data (not published) clearly show that patients with COPD have significantly lower carnosine, which is ...

Phase N/A

Targeted AntiBiotics for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

P. aeruginosa represents a potentially significant cause of acute exacerbation of COPD (AECOPD) and is possibly associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Despite this, the role of P. aeruginosa in the course of COPD is less well characterized, and evidence based guidelines for management and treatment of the bacteria are ...
