ECCO2R as an Adjunct to NIV in AECOPD

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is one of the UKs commonest chronic diseases and is responsible for a significant number of acute hospital admissions. COPD is characterised by progressive destruction in the elastic tissue within the lung, causing respiratory failure. The clinical course of COPD is characterised by recurrent acute ...

Phase N/A

Effects of IPV Assessed With Functional Imaging

A Multicenter study conducted in university Hospital Antwerp (UZA) and ZNA Middelheim. Tests are taken before and after one week IPV treatment. IPV is applied for 1 week during the physical therapy treatment of chronic obstructive pulmonary desease (COPD) patients admitted to the hospital for an excarebation. The IPV treatment ...

Phase N/A

Sequential Endoscopic Lung Volume Reduction

Patients with heterogenous emphysema undergo ELVR, target lobe is the upper lobe right. After 6 weeks the middle lobe will be block too. Follow-up period 6 months Primary end points: FEV 1, 6-Minute walk test Secondary endpoints. Safety, Symptom scores Number of patients planned 30


Detection of Circulating Endothelial Progenitors Cells (EPCs) in Non-small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC)

The aim of this study is to study blood circulating levels bone-marrow-derived progenitor cells (EPCS). In a first phase, EPCs will be detected in healthy non-smokers volunteers to validate flow cytometry method (n=25). In addition, EPC will e characterized by primary cultures to analyze EPC-specific markers. In a second phase, ...


LTOT in COPD Patients With Moderate Chronic Hypoxemia and Chronic Heart Failure

Long-term oxygen treatment (LTOT) improves survival of COPD patients with severe hypoxemia . The improved survival was proven in COPD patients with severe chronic hypoxemia (PaO2< or = 55 mmHg), providing oxygen was delivered for = or >15 hours/day. Since then, > 15 hours/day LTOT has become the standard treatment ...


VISN 23 Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Case Management Using Home Telehealth Equipment

Patients who have been admitted to the hospital, or who have frequent urgent care visits, who also suffer from COPD exacerbations will be given a home monitoring system. Daily, the patient will respond to a series of questions. The results of the question answers will be remotely monitored by a ...

Phase N/A

Effect of Losartan on Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)

Losartan, an angiotensin receptor blocker, has been effective in preventing the development of emphysema and lung inflammation in animal models of COPD. Moreover, there is epidemiologic evidence that suggests that this drug may be effective in reducing COPD morbidity and mortality. This study will provide treatment with either losartan or ...


Glasgow Supported Self Management Trial (GSuST)

There have been no randomised controlled trials from UK settings reporting either the effect or the costs of an intensive, individualised case- and self-management intervention for patients with COPD. Given new evidence from other countries (discussed above), we propose that a combined case- and self-management (henceforth referred to as "supported ...

Phase N/A

A Multi-Center Study of Rehabilitation to Stable Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Patients

This is a multi-center prospective follow-up study.More than 20 hospitals participate the research. More than 300 stable COPD patients will be recruited.It is a two-year study. There are four groups, cycling and walking group(C-WG),cycling and non-walking group(C-nonWG),walking and walking group(W-WG),walking and non-walking group(W-nonWG). 1. All patients from four groups will ...

Phase N/A

Effect of Statin Therapy on C-Reactive Protein Levels in Patients With Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease (COPD)

Patients with chronic obstructive lung disease (COPD) have an ongoing systemic inflammation, which can be assessed by measuring C-reactive protein (CRP). CRP is found to be a strong and independent predictor of future COPD outcomes. Statins are a class of cholesterol lowering drugs that decrease mortality from cardiovascular disease and ...
