Rituximab Versus Cyclophosphamide in Connective Tissue Disease-ILD

Interstitial lung disease (ILD) is characterised by inflammation and scarring of the lung and is the leading cause of death in patients with systemic sclerosis, and contributes significantly to morbidity and mortality in many other connective tissue diseases (CTDs) such as polymyositis/dermatomyositis and mixed connective tissue disease. When ILD is ...

Phase

A clinical trial sponsored by McMaster University for a research study for the treatment of Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia, Bronchiectasis, Asthma, Pulmonary sarcoidosis, Emphysema, alpha-1-Antitrypsin deficiency, Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease, Pulmonary Fibrosis

The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the ventilation defect percent (VDP), apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) and/or the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) obtained by analysis of hyperpolarized 129Xe MRI at one or more time-points (over time in the absence of therapeutic intervention or following clinically indicated therapy) in healthy ...

Phase N/A

Comparing and Combining Bortezomib and Mycophenolate in SSc Pulmonary Fibrosis

Systemic sclerosis (SSc) is a chronic multisystem autoimmune connective tissue disease for which the etiology remains unknown. The prevalence for SSc is between 19-75 cases per 100,000 and it is more frequent in women, with a peak occurrence in the 4th or 5th decade of life. Morbidity and Mortality in ...

Phase

Safety of Anti-Depressant for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (SAD-COPD)

Objective: Determine whether treatment of perceived stress, anxiety, and depression with anti-depressant therapy improves dyspnea scores, 6-minute walk (6MW) distance and quality of life (QoL) in patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and ILD (Interstitial Lung Disease) undergoing pulmonary rehab. The study is a prospective, randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled study ...

Phase N/A

Abatacept for the Treatment of Myositis-associated Interstitial Lung Disease

This is a proof of concept study to evaluate the efficacy, safety and tolerability of ABT in Syn-ILD in a multi-center randomized, placebo-controlled 6-month (24-week) pilot study.

Phase

Pulmonary Rehabilitation in Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis

The investigators hypothesize that PR service with supplemented oxygen supply regardless of hypoxemia may have significantly better short-term effects in patients with IPF. The study will take place in Corfu General Hospital, by the Departments of Pulmonary Medicine and Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation, respectively. Study participants will be divided in two ...

Phase N/A

Hydroxychloroquin (HCQ) in Pediatric Interstitial Lung Disease (ILD)

This study is an explorative, prospective, randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled investigation of hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) in pediatric ILD. The treatments are organized in START and STOP blocks, which can be initiated in sequence, as needed by the subjects. Each patient can participate in each block only once. In the START block ...

Phase

Targeted Intervention for Patient Centered Outcome in Patients With Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis

The hypothesis is that the provision of a comprehensive pulmonary rehabilitation program to patients with IPF will significantly improve participant health related quality of life. The objective is to develop a comprehensive, multi-disciplinary 12-week PR program with disease specific educational components for IPF patients. The specific aims of the proposal ...

Phase N/A

Detection of Integrin avb6 in Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis Using PET/CT

Stanford University has developed a new PET tracer that selectively binds to integrin avb6, a cell surface receptor that is overexpressed in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF). Increased avb6 receptors on IPF lung tissue has been well documented, while its expression remains relatively non-existent in the healthy adult lung. The selected ...

Phase N/A

Pilot Study of Pirfenidone in Pulmonary Fibrosis With Anti-myeloperoxydase Antibodies

Pulmonary fibrosis can be associated with Anti-Neutrophil Cytoplasmic Antibody (ANCA) directed against MPO or with anti-MPO associated vasculitis, leading to increased disability and poor prognosis. The pathophysiology of this association remains unclear. Conventional therapies used for the treatment of vasculitis manifestations are often disappointing for the treatment of pulmonary fibrosis. ...
