Phenomics in Autoimmune and Inflammatory Diseases

The family of inflammatory/autoimmune systemic diseases (IAD) represents a large group of human diseases. For most if not all of these IAD, the pathophysiological processes or exact causes remain poorly understood. Progresses in molecular understanding of these IAD have led to realize that these are not two distinct categories of ...

Phase N/A

Nasal Tracheal and Bronchial Mucosal Lining Fluid(MLF) Sampling From Patients With Respiratory Diseases

Aim- To define the diagnosis, stratification and monitoring of IPF, sarcoidosis and TB, providing targets and biomarkers for new therapy. The investigators will study asthma and COPD patients with inflammation of the airways, and to compare with healthy control subjects. Characterising inflammation using upper airway sampling may eventually remove the ...

Phase N/A

Clinical and Genetic Study of Familial Sarcoidosis (SARCFAM)

Major impacts of air pollution are lung diseases such as granulomatous diseases and mainly sarcoidosis. Understanding the respective role of inorganic / nanoparticles and genetic background in these chronic diseases is a major challenge for the management of patients and prevention strategies. Granulomas are characterized by giant epithelioid and multinucleated ...

Phase N/A

Prediction of Outcome of Lupus Nephritis

Prospective multicenter study on the validity of levels of circulating antibodies to glomerular neo-autoantigens (alpha-enolase and annexin AI) and implantable antigens (anti-DNA, histone, istone3, istone4, C1q) as a surrogate biomarker for the diagnosis of lupus nephritis. The study will involve the collection of serum from patients with lupus nephritis at ...

Phase N/A

Demodex Density Immune Response and Oxidative Stress in Rosacea Patients

Rosacea is a common and chronic inflammatory disease characterized by facial erythema, papule, pustule and telangiectasia. Ultraviolet, Demodex mite, oxidative stress and antioxidant system disorders are emphasized in increased inflammation seen in rosacea. The aim of our study was to evaluate the status of oxidative stress, matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) and ...

Phase N/A

Estrogen and Gender Biased Autoimmunity

This is a 3-year study. The total number of subjects enrolled will depend on the results obtained. The subjects will be at least 18 years of age and pre-menopausal. Exclusion to include pregnant women, and all subjects are told not to get pregnant while on study. Also, they cannot take ...

Phase N/A

Efferocytosis and Genomic Polymorphism in Autoimmune Diseases

Over the past few years, there were growing evidences that clearance of apoptotic cells by phagocytosis can result in powerful anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive effects. The defective clearance of apoptotic cells has been linked to autoimmunity and persistent inflammatory diseases. Apoptotic cells are cleared in vivo rapidly. Clearance of apoptotic cells ...

Phase N/A

Cyclophosphamide in Lupus Nephritis

The autoimmune disease systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) commonly affects the kidneys (lupus nephritis) and for some patients leads to a progressive loss of kidney function. In patients with aggressive lupus nephritis, treatment with the cytotoxic agent Cyclophosphamide (CP), and modulation of the immune system has proven effective in delaying progression ...

Phase N/A

Health-Related Quality of Life and Disease-Related Costs: Comparison Between Ankylosing Spondylitis Rheumatoid Arthritis and Systemic Lupus Erythematosus in Taiwan

Ankylosing spondylitis (AS), rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) are the most common rheumatic diseases dealt with rheumatologists in Taiwan. In previous studies, the 3 diseases all have broad impacts on health-related quality of life of patients and drive enormous economic burden on patients and society. The objective ...

Phase N/A

Pulse Corticosteroid Therapy and Effect on Brain Water Diffusivity

In daily clinical use, pulse high dosis corticosteroids are used to treat cerebral edema in different pathological situations ( surgery, trauma, tumors...). Dehydration can theorically concern extra-cellular or intracellular water, or both. The relative proportion of those two components are not known, as well their kinetics. Diffusion Weighted Imaging ( ...
