Turkish Thoracic Society Usual Interstitial Pneumonia Registry Study

The TURK-UIP Registry is a web based application that will store information about patients. A HRCT pattern consistent with UIP will be confirmed by 3 radiologists. At the 3-month visits, the pulmonary function tests and the 6-minute walk test will be recorded. Patients will be prospectively followed for a 5-year ...

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

Role of Genetics in Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF)

Familial Pulmonary Fibrosis (FPF) is a sub-category of the idiopathic interstitial pneumonias (IIPs). IIPs are progressive lung conditions, with limited treatment options and unknown etiology. Though the IIPs have been associated with both genetic risk factors and environmental exposures, the molecular mechanism underlying disease progression remain poorly understood. This investigation ...

Early Diagnosis of Pulmonary Fibrosis - Use of Biomarkers in Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis

Pulmonary fibrosis can be secondary to connective-tissue disease, environmental exposure, or drug toxicity, but it can also appear sporadically without any known cause, i.e. idiopathic interstitial pneumonitis (IIP). Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is the commonest IIP and usually follows a rapidly progressive course with a short median survival time. IPF ...

Phase N/A

Multicenter Study of Impulse Oscillometry in Chinese

The purpose of this study is to establish the reference values of impulse oscillometry (IOS) in healthy Chinese, and compare the indices of IOS in patients with lung disease, such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), asthma, interstitial lung disease (ILD), and upper airway Obstruction (UAO).

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

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

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. ...

Phase

Health-related Quality of Life and Comorbidities in Danish Patients With Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis - a Nationwide Follow-up

Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a progressive lung disease with a high mortality. Health-related quality of life (HRQL) is impaired in patients with IPF. Little is known about the properties of recently developed HRQL questionnaires and about the longitudinal changes in HRQL, including factors with an impact on HRQL. Comorbidities ...
