Epidemiological Study on Community Acquired Pneumonia

Long-term objectives of the basic research part are improvement of CAP-management with respect to therapy, diagnosis and prevention to contribute to a better care of patients with pneumonia. The aim of the study CAPNETZ is to improve diagnosis, treatment and patient care.

Phase N/A

Best Clinical Endpoints That Likely Induce Worse Prognosis in Interstitial Lung Diseases

This prospective cohort study will investigate whether progression of the interstitial lung diseases is related to specific clinical endpoints and their changes over time. Longitudinal data of patients will be compared to an age-matched control group during a follow-up of at least two years.

Phase N/A

Clinical Utility Of Genetic Screening For HLA-B*1301 On Susceptibility To Dapsone Hypersensitivity Syndrome

This Study is to evaluate the utility of prospective HLA-B1301 screening on the incidence of dapsone hypersensitivity syndrome (DHS) in 3130 previously Dapsone(DDS)-naive patients. Those patients include allergic cutaneous vasculitis, urticaria, psoriasis, acne, bullous skin diseases, sterile pustulosis, leprosy, pneumocystis pneumonia and any other patients who need dapsone administration. The ...

Cyclophosphamide for Acute Exacerbation of Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis

Acute exacerbation of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (AE-IPF) is a major event of IPF with an annual incidence between 5 and 10% and is responsible for the death of one third of IPF patients. When AE-IPF occurs, it is associated with poor survival with an overall mortality at 3 months upper ...

Structured Exercise Training Programme in Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis

Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a progressive fibrotic lung disease characterised by progressive exercise intolerance and breathlessness. In 2012 there were 32 500 people living in the United Kingdom (UK) with IPF. Average life expectancy from time of diagnosis is 2-3 years (Ley et al. 2011). Despite recent advances in ...

Phase N/A

Impact of the Subglottic Secretions Drainage on the Tracheal Secretions Colonisation

Meta-analysis provide evidence for the benefit of the subglottic secretions drainage (SSD) to reduce the occurrence of Ventilator-Associated Pneumonia (VAP). Nevertheless, the diagnosis of VAP is widely considered as subjective and prone to both false-positive and false negative assignments. In ths way, the impact of SSD remains controversial and its ...

Surveillance of Hospitalised Pneumonia and Bacterial Meningitis in T ne District Togo 2010-2013

The aim of this study is to estimate the burden of disease due to pneumococci, other bacteria and viruses in the African meningitis belt prior to pneumococcal conjugate vaccine introduction and to estimate the population impact of the vaccine after its implementation in 2014. In a defined population of a ...

Phase N/A

Respiratory Endoscopy: Diagnostic Yield Technical Factors and Complications

Background: Respiratory endoscopy comprises flexible bronchoscopy and medical thoracoscopy. The diagnostic yield, technical factors and complications for all patient sub-populations is still not clearly defined. This may result in inappropriate or even dangerous application of such procedures. The aim of the study is to collect data on these aspects of ...

Phase N/A

Short Duration Treatment of Non-severe Community Acquired Pneumonia

To investigate the non inferiority of a short lasting antibiotic treatment (3 days) when compared to a long lasting antibiotic treatment (8 days), at Day 15 after the beginning of treatment in terms of clinical efficacy, in adults admitted to emergency services for a non severe Community Acquired Pneumonia (PAC), ...

Prevalence and Impact on Quality of Life of Airway Disease in Patients With Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis

Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is defined as a specific form of chronic, progressive fibrosing interstitial pneumonia of unknown cause, occurring primarily in older adults, and limited to the lungs. It is characterized by progressive worsening of dyspnea and lung function and is associated with a poor prognosis. The main symptoms ...
