A 12-week Study Treating Participants Who Have alpha1-antitrypsin-related COPD With Alvelestat (MPH966) or Placebo.

The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of alvelestat (an oral neutrophil elastase inhibitor) on blood and sputum biomarkers in patients with Pizz or null genotype alpha-1 anti-trypsin deficient lung disease. Change in a number of different blood and sputum biomarkers related to lung damage, inflammation and ...

Phase

Tezepelumab COPD Exacerbation Study

This is a Phase 2a, multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel group study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of tezepelumab in adults with moderate to very severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) receiving triple inhaled maintenance therapy, and having had 2 or more documented COPD exacerbations in the 12 months ...

Phase

Inhaled NO in IPF and COPD During 6 Minute Walk Test

This is a randomiized, placebo controlled trail that will evaluate the influence of inhaled NO (INO) on the saturation and exercise capacity of patients with COPD and IPF. All patients will sign a consent form before enrolment. Each patient will undergo two six-minute walk tests. Whether the INO will be ...

Phase

Imaging of Peri-operative (periOP) Lung Injury

Lung injury is commonly not detected unless structural damage has occurred. SPECT-CT scanning using a specific tracer that lights up when it detects apoptosis (programmed cell death) has been used to detect even minor lung injury for example by smoke inhalation in animals and may be more sensitive to detect ...

Phase

Imaging of Apoptosis in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is the third leading cause of death and is characterized by clinical symptoms and spirometry. Additional measures for diagnosis can be taken using imaging modalities such as CT. However, the evaluation of lung destruction in COPD is limited by the inability to visualize the activation ...

Phase

Dose-range Finding Efficacy and Safety Study for QBW251 in COPD Patients

The purpose of this study is to support the dose selection for future studies by evaluating efficacy and safety of different QBW251 doses in COPD patients with chronic bronchitis and a history of exacerbations, compared to placebo, when added to a triple combination therapy of LABA, LAMA and ICS with ...

Phase

Morphine to Maximize the Benefits of Exercise Training in COPD or ILD and Persistent Breathlessness

Supervised exercise training programs (such as pulmonary rehabilitation) are an integral component of the clinical management of COPD or ILD; a proven intervention for improving symptom burden, quality of life, emotional function, exercise capacity, and risk of hospitalization and death. While both low and high intensity exercise training benefits adults ...

Phase

The Topic Trial - Study to Determine the Safety and Efficacy of Ivacaftor

Like CF, COPD is characterized by small airway mucus obstruction that is associated with accelerated loss of lung function and mortality. Preliminary data indicate that cigarette smoke exerts deleterious effects on airway epithelial function including the reduction of CFTR activity, enhanced mucus expression, and a pronounced reduction in mucociliary transport ...

Phase

Epstein-Barr Virus Suppression in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (EViSCO): a Phase 2 Randomised Control Trial

The study will evaluate the role of antiviral therapy in COPD. Previous research has demonstrated that Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) is more frequently identified in the airways of COPD sufferers when compared to unaffected smokers. It is not known whether suppression of EBV helps in COPD. Hypothesis. The primary hypothesis is ...

Phase

A Study to Investigate the Differential Effects of Inhaled Symbicort and Advair on Lung Microbiota

This is a randomized, non-placebo controlled study to evaluate the effects of Symbicort 400 mcg twice daily (BID) and Advair 250 mcg BID over 12 weeks. As the standard of therapy for COPD is a long-acting muscarinic antagonist (LAMA) treatment, a placebo only group cannot be ethically justified. The control ...
