Childhood Asthma Management in Primary Care: Implementation Of Exhaled Nitric Oxide and Spirometry Testing

What are the capacity and training needs in general practice to implement routine spirometry and eNO testing in children aged 5-16 years? Asthma is the commonest long-term disease of childhood in the United Kingdom (UK). Under-diagnosis and under-treatment of childhood asthma in general practice (GP) have been reported from several ...

Phase N/A

Gene Expression Profile and Inflammation Profile of Classic Asthma Cough Variant Asthma and Eosinophilic Bronchitis

Asthma is a common and heterogeneous respiratory disorder affecting millions of people, posing a considerable burden on health care systems globally. The disease is characterized by inflammation of the airways with eosinophils, neutrophils, mast cells, lymphocytes, airway epithelial cells, smooth muscle cells and other cells, by airflow obstruction and by ...

Phase N/A

Blood Collection From Individuals With Lung Disease for Genetic Studies

The investigators hope to be able to identify an association between a genetic make-up in the blood samples and the risks of developing a particular lung disease, or severity of a lung disease. The findings of this study might be important to develop future preventative methods and potential treatments for ...

Phase N/A

Investigating Mucinase Activity in Airway Disease

Accumulation of mucus in the airway involves the process of overproduction and reduced clearance of mucin glycoproteins. To date, little attention has been focused on mechanisms of mucin clearance from the airway. We hypothesize that there is enzymatic degradation of mucins ("mucinase activity") in the airway, which acts to break ...

Phase N/A

The Ohio State University Asthma Registry

Patients from The Ohio State University Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine will be sent a letter explaining the registry and asking about their interest in participating in this registry. The registry and all procedures related to their inclusion will be explained, opportunity to ask questions will be given ...

Phase N/A

Acute Asthma Responsiveness and B2 Adrenergic Receptors Polymorphisms

The most recently available statistics indicate that approximately 22.2 million people in the United States have asthma. Of these, about 55% experienced at least one attack in the year before the survey resulting in 1.9 million visits to emergency departments and 497,000 hospitalizations. The natural history of acute asthma is ...

Phase N/A

Airway Responsiveness and Inflammation in Adolescent Elite Swimmers: a 3-Year Prospective Follow-up Study

Even though studies suggest that elite sport can cause AHR and airway inflammation, more studies are needed to elucidate how and when AHR and airway inflammation develop; and there is a lack of follow-up studies. The present study will give us a chance to do a follow-up study to register ...

Phase N/A

Novel Biomarkers in Chronic Airway Diseases

The purpose of this study is: - To define The differences of bio-chemical phenotypes in chronic airway inflammatory diseases. - To identify novel biomarkers in chronic airway inflammatory diseases as a screening, diagnostic, or monitoring marker.

Phase N/A

Trefoil Peptides in Lung Diseases

The study focuses on trefoil family factor (TFF) peptides in sputum in lung diseases. The investigators hypothesize that TFF peptides are upregulated in lung diseases characterized by mucus hypersecretion.

Phase N/A

Airway Dysfunction and Remodelling in Athletes Following Swimming Training in Chlorinated Pools

Swimmers show the highest prevalence of asthma among elite athletes, certainly due to chlorine exposure. The consequences of a chronic exposure to chlorine compounds by swimmers and the mechanisms of asthme in this population are still poorly documented. Specific diagnostic criteria have been proposed by the International Olympic Committee - ...
