The Role of Gastroesophageal Reflux in Scleroderma Pulmonary Fibrosis

Scarring of the lungs is common in patients with scleroderma and is one of the main causes of death. Patients with scleroderma very frequently have problems with their gullet (esophagus), the food pipe that leads into the stomach. Normally, a small circular muscle at the base of the esophagus opens ...

Phase N/A

Cromolyn Detection of Silent Aspiration

The overall purpose of this project is to develop and validate a simple, non-invasive method to detect aspiration of gastro-intestinal fluid into the respiratory tract. In the inpatient setting, the investigators will compare the quantity of cromolyn detected in urine collected overnight after 4 ingestions (at 2h intervals) of a ...

Phase

Genetics of the Combined Pulmonary Fibrosis and Emphysema Syndrome

The combined pulmonary fibrosis and emphysema syndrome (CPFE) individualized by our group in 2005 is characterized by an often severe dyspnea, almost exclusive male predominance, and often major, profound impairment of gas exchange contrasting with preserved lung volumes and absence of airflow obstruction, and a high risk of pre-capillary pulmonary ...

Phase N/A

Patients With Pulmonary Hypertension or Interstitial Lung Disease at Altitude - Effect of Oxygen on Breathing and Sleep

Patients with pulmonary hypertension or with interstitial lung disease living below 800 m will be invited to participate in a randomized, cross-over field trial evaluating the hypotheses that: a), breathing and sleep during a 2 day sojourn at moderate altitude are impaired in comparison to low altitude; b), breathing and ...

Phase

Open Label Trial of Utility of Cryobiopsy in the Multidisciplinary Diagnosis of Idiopathic Interstitial Lung Disease

A multicenter, multinational, prospective study to clarify, whether the addition of cryobiopsy can avoid surgical lung biopsy in a clinically relevant proportion of patients with suspected Idiopathic Interstitial Pneumonia

Phase N/A

Controls for Respiratory Diseases

This is the registry of control participants for patients with various respiratory diseases. We screened healthy volunteers who visited Seoul National Hospital Healthcare System Gangnam Center for routine health check-up, and enrolled patients who agree to participate in the study. The participants undergo baseline questionnaires, provide blood specimen and information ...

Phase N/A

Functional MR Lung Imaging Using Hyperpolarised 129Xe

The aim of this study is to investigate the potential value of a novel imaging technique (hyperpolarized 129Xe lung imaging) in the diagnosis and assessment of lung disease in patients with COPD and IPF.

Phase N/A

Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis Job Exposures Study

A case-control study to investigate whether job exposures are an under-recognized cause of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) using an interview to collect information about previous jobs and a blood test to investigate genetic susceptibility.

Phase N/A

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

Nasal Tracheal and Bronchial Mucosal Lining Fluid(MLF) Sampling From Patients With Respiratory Diseases

Aim- To define the diagnosis, stratification and monitoring of IPF, sarcoidosis and TB, providing targets and biomarkers for new therapy. The investigators will study asthma and COPD patients with inflammation of the airways, and to compare with healthy control subjects. Characterising inflammation using upper airway sampling may eventually remove the ...
