Asthma and COPD are characterized by an accelerated decline in lung function associated with incompletely reversible airflow obstruction. This could be the result of lung structural changes and inflammation. Tissue repairing mechanisms may result in a restitution ad integrum of bronchial epithelium. But in most cases, especially in COPD and ...

Phase N/A

Efficacy of a Coaching Program to Promote Physical Activity and Reduce Sedentary Behavior After a COPD Hospitalization

Patients with COPD are more inactive and more sedentary than subjects of the same age and patients with other chronic diseases. This inactivity and sedentary behavior is accentuated after hospitalizations due to a COPD exacerbation, and it increases the risk for future hospitalizations and mortality. Therefore, there is a need ...

Phase N/A

The Supporting Patient Activation in Transition to Home Intervention

Included patients transition to home will be bridged through a telephone-call from a patient activation coach two days post-discharge. The patients will thereafter get motivational interviewing sessions by the same patient activation coach with the the goal that the patients are motivated to the knowledge, skills and confidence needed to ...

Phase N/A

Pedometer-based Behavioural Intervention for Individuals With COPD to Stay Active After Rehabilitation

A detailed description will be available in the study protocol publication which is generated at the moment (August, 2016).

Phase N/A

Early Pulmonary Rehabilitation in Exacerbated COPD Patients

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is characterized by chronic and progressive airflow limitations and subjects with COPD also experience exacerbations characterized by the worsening of respiratory symptoms. It's necessary medical intervention, changes in regular medication, and the use of antibiotics and/or corticosteroids followed or not by hospitalization. The exacerbations contribute ...

Phase N/A

New Technology to Assess Treatment for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)

First, the investigators will image patients with hyperpolarized xenon (Xe) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to develop the technique of hyperpolarized xenon MRI at the University of Virginia (UVA). Magnetic Resonance (MR) sequences will need to be developed and optimized for the equipment at UVA. These sequences will need to be ...

Phase N/A

Activity Monitor Use in COPD Patients Undergoing Rehabilitation

The research proposal has been developed in conjunction with the Respiratory Physicians and Physiotherapy team who deliver the pulmonary Rehabilitation sessions. The investigators want to address if providing patients with monitors to record activity levels and then giving feedback on activity level data enhances the effect of the standard pulmonary ...

Phase N/A

Behavioral Intervention to Maintain Physical Capacity and Activity in Patients With Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a progressive disease and the number of patients is increasing. Persons with COPD have a low physical capacity and a low physical activity level. The risk of premature morbidity and mortality is high especially in persons with a low level of physical capacity and ...


Iron and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Exercise Trial

Iron deficiency (ID) is one of the most common nutritional deficiencies affecting humans. Chronic diseases, including COPD, are commonly complicated by iron deficiency anaemia (IDA). It has been well documented that there is an association between both ID and anaemia and reduced exercise capacity. It has been postulated that addressing ...


Autologous Bronchial Basal Cells Transplantation for Treatment of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a kind of chronic bronchitis or emphysema with characteristics of long-term poor airflow, resulting in chronic pulmonary heart disease, chronic respiratory failure or even death. Anatomically, the pulmonary bronchus structures in COPD patients are damaged and cannot be repaired by recent clinical treatment so ...
