RESULTS

Found (26) clinical trials

This study is designed to evaluate genetic mechanisms of lung disease by surveying polymorphic genes involved in respiratory function and examining gene expression in the lung cells of individuals with pulmonary disease (e.g., alpha 1-antitrypsin deficiency, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, cystic fibrosis, sarcoidosis, history of infection, and genetic mutations ...

Phase N/A

Inhaled Steroids for Pediatric Asthma at Pediatric Emergency Medicine Discharge

The primary objective is to determine the effect of prescribing inhaled corticosteroids in addition to short acting beta agonists and oral corticosteroids (if indicated) from the Pediatric Emergency Department (PED) on relapse rates within 28 days. Secondary objectives include the effect of this intervention on hospitalization rates and asthma quality ...

The Role of Endothelium A and EGFR Receptor in Fibrocytes From Asthma With Obstructive Sleep Apnea

Asthma is characterized by airflow obstruction, chronic airway inflammation and remodeling. The investigators' report has shown directly the relationship between fibrocytes, and chronic airflow obstruction with rapid decline in FEV1 in asthma. Asthma concomitant of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) may appear intermittent hypoxia and result in the frequent attack of ...

Phase N/A

Asthma and Atopic Dermatitis Validation of PROMIS Pediatric Instruments

This study involves a series of research and development projects targeted at two of the most common chronic diseases affecting children: asthma and atopic dermatitis (AD, or eczema). The Investigators propose to directly validate patient-reported outcomes (PRO) measures in a large cohort of itch-specific pediatric skin conditions, with a primary ...

The Development of Novel Clinical Tests to Diagnose and Monitor Asthma in Preschool Children

In Canada, the most common chronic disease of childhood is asthma. Childhood asthma places a significant burden on the health care system (refn). No objective preschool asthma diagnostic tools exist, and the current gold-standard, the Asthma Predictive Index, does not provide information about lung function and symptom management. In this ...

Phase N/A

Pediatric Arm of DZL All Age Asthma Cohort

About 25-30% of children have at least one episode of wheeze before their 3rd birthday, but considerable clinical heterogeneity exists. Many of these children become symptom-free between 3 and 8 years of age, but some go on to persistent asthma in later childhood and adulthood. Despite its high prevalence, still ...

Phase N/A

Magnesium Nebulization Utilization in Management of Pediatric Asthma

The investigators plan the following specific aims: Primary Objective: To examine if in children with acute asthma remaining in moderate to severe respiratory distress despite maximized initial bronchodilator and steroid therapy there is a reduction in hospitalization rate from the ED in those who receive nebulized Mg with salbutamol versus ...

Phase

MCT and Capsaicin Provocation Challenge in Diagnosis of Chronic Cough

The present study has the following objectives: to assess the prevalence of BHR in non-smoking adults with a chronic cough, to assess the prevalence of BHR in patients with UACS and GERD, to evaluate the relationship between BHR and cough reflex sensitivity, to assess the diagnostic accuracy of MCT in ...

Phase N/A

Pulmonary Disorders During Exercise in Patients With Obstructive Sleep Apnea

Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) is characterized by repeated episodes of upper airway obstruction during sleep. Recent studies have found evidence of airway inflammation in patients with OSAS. Individuals with chronic airway inflammation are at higher risk for exercise-induced bronchoconstriction (EIB). We hypothesized patients with OSAS are at higher risk ...

Phase N/A

Smoking Cessation in Caregivers of Pediatric Patients With Respiratory Illness

The intervention group will continue to wear the wristband and the wristband will deliver a slight electric stimulus every time it is pressed. The placebo group will wear continue to press the button on the wristband but it will not give a slight electric stimulus when pressed. Both groups will ...
