Hyperpolarized 129Xe MRI for Imaging Pulmonary Function

Non-invasive imaging of pulmonary function is expected to provide critical insights that are needed to spur progress in characterizing and treating chronic pulmonary diseases. The current primary diagnostic measure is pulmonary function testing (PFT), which was introduced in the mid-19th century, yet remains the standard of care today. PFTs have ...


Advancing Understanding of Transportation Options

The investigators will use a multi-site, two-armed randomized controlled trial of older drivers (n=300; 70 years) from clinical settings, and one family member each (n=up to 300), with longitudinal follow-up. Study goals are to test how much the DDA improves outcomes and identify who benefits most from the DDA. Evaluation ...

Phase N/A

Lung Elastrosonography in Diagnosis and Stratification of COPD and Fibrosis

Introduction Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a common respiratory disease characterized by irreversible expiratory airflow limitation with bronchial hyperinflation and air trapping, causing a reduction of pulmonary and thoracic compliance, characterized by chronic inflammation with emphysematous destruction of the lungs (GOLD Guidelines 2019; Singh P et al 2019; Bagdonas ...

Phase N/A

Nasal High Flow to Maintain the Benefits of Pulmonary Rehabilitation in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease Patients

Experimental design: Patients achieving their last pulmonary rehabilitation session will be approached to participate in this study. Eligible patients who agree to participate in the study and sign informed consent will perform two baseline visit assessments: First visit: Incremental cardiopulmonary exercise testing. Second visit: Other baseline assessment (see outcome section), ...

Phase N/A

A Study on Whether Patients Prefer the Spiriva Respimat or the Spiriva Handihaler for Treating Their Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)

The objective of this study is to investigate the patient acceptability/preference of Respimat compared with Handihaler in patients with moderate to severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) to demonstrate the superiority of Respimat.


Study Comparing Dual Combination of Product (Budesonide and Formoterol) Given Via Two Different Inhalers. To See Which One Results in the Best Effect on Breathing.

This is a Randomized, Open-Label, Two Period Crossover, Chronic Dosing, 1-Week, Pilot Study to Assess the Efficacy and Safety of Budesonide and Formoterol Fumarate Inhalation Aerosol Administered with a Spacer Compared with Symbicort Turbuhaler in Subjects with Severe to Very Severe Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease and Low Peak Inspiratory Flow ...


Effects of High Flow Nasal Cannula on Sputum Clearance in Acute Exacerbation of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a major cause of morbidity and the 4th leading cause of mortality in the world. Acute exacerbation of COPD usually presents with more sputum production leading to worsening airflow obstruction. During an exacerbation, high flow nasal cannula (HFNC) has shown to reduce blood carbon ...

Phase N/A

Assessment of Continuous Measurement of Transcutaneous CO2 for Evaluation of Alveolar Dead Space During Exercise

The study aim is to monitor, during exercise tests carried out in various conditions, the alveolar dead space, by means of continuous transcutaneous measurement of Pt CO2, which would be used as a surrogate for arterial PaCO2. Validity of this measurement needs to be assessed against arterial sampling (either arterial, ...

Phase N/A

Assessment of Neural Inspiratory Time Through sEMG and EMGdi

The onset and offset of the neural inspiratory time are fundamentally important measurements in studies of patien-tventilator interaction, where the level of assistance delivered by the ventilator is controlled by the patient's demand. Patient-ventilator asynchrony evaluated using the time lag between onset of the neural inspiratory time and the onset ...

Phase N/A

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 ...
