High Resolution Micro OCT Imaging

Lung Disease is the predominate cause of morbidity and mortality in patients with cystic fibrosis (CF). A better understanding of the primary pathogenesis of CF is essential in order to reveal the features that may lead to the onset of progressive lung disease. Discerning the nature of the CF defect ...

PREDICT Trial: PRospective Evaluation of NTM Disease In CysTic Fibrosis

Isolation of an nontuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) from sputa of cystic fibrosis (CF) patients is relatively common, and of uncertain significance. At the request of the CF Foundation (CFF), the Investigators have designed a standardized diagnostic protocol based on current recommendations for the diagnosis of NTM by the American Thoracic Society, ...

Phase N/A

The Impact of Insulin Therapy on Protein Turnover in Pre-Diabetic Cystic Fibrosis Patients

Insulin insufficiency related to pancreatic fibrosis and -cell dysfunction is present in almost every cystic fibrosis (CF) patient. Progressive abnormalities in insulin secretion begin in childhood, and, in adults, CF related diabetes (CFRD) is eventually present in more than half of the CF population. CFRD is associated with weight loss, ...

Phase

Inhaled Nitric Oxide for Cystic Fibrosis Patients With MABSC

A Prospective, Open labeled, multi-Center, Evaluation of the Efficacy Safety and Tolerability of Nitric Oxide Given Intermittently via Inhalation to Subjects with Cystic Fibrosis diagnosed with NTM (specifically MABSC). Nitric Oxide (NO) has been shown to play a critical role in various biological functions. In the airways, NO is considered ...

The Effects of Discontinuation of Vitamin K Antagonists on the Rate of Elastin Degradation

Background: Elastin is a unique protein providing elasticity, resilience and deformability to dynamic tissues, such as lungs and vasculature. Elastin fibers are characterized by their high affinity for calcium. However, calcified elastin is more prone to the degrading effects of proteases and, in turn, partially degraded elastin has an even ...

Phase N/A

Multiple Breath Washout a Clinimetric Dataset

Lung Clearance Index (LCI) has been shown to be more sensitive and perhaps more applicable in early stages of lung disease when compared to currently utilised physiological outcome measures, and yet it is not approved by regulatory agencies as a recognised surrogate outcome measure. This may highlight some of the ...

Phase N/A

Perceived Impact of Art Therapy in Patients With Cystic Fibrosis and in Professional Interdisciplinary Teams Taking Care of Them.

Cystic fibrosis is so far a disease whose treatment remains essentially symptomatic care teams perceive the boundaries of a support mainly focused on drug treatments. The patient had no other choice but to learn to live with their disease, the goal is to make every effort so that tames the ...

Phase N/A

Cystic Fibrosis - Insulin Deficiency Early Action

As well as progressive lung disease, patients with Cystic Fibrosis (CF) suffer pancreatic destruction, leading to slow but progressive insulin deficiency. Deficiency of insulin, a powerful anabolic hormone, causes accelerated decline of weight and lung function (important predictors of early mortality in CF). We analysed Oral Glucose Tolerance Tests sampled ...

Phase

Longitudinal Pathogen-colonization in Cystic Fibrosis Airways and Ability to Smell

The sub-study on the sense of smelling in CF has been finalized in the meantime. Results were published in 2012: Smell in cystic fibrosis. Lindig J, Steger C, Beiersdorf N, Michl R, Beck JF, Hummel T, Mainz JG. Eur Arch Otorhinolaryngol. 2013 Mar;270(3):915-21. doi: 10.1007/s00405-012-2124-2. Epub 2012 Aug 14.
