Nutritional Metabolic and Respiratory Status in Cystic Fibrosis

Diabetes is a important complication of cystic fibrosis (CF). The improved life expectancy of patients with cystic fibrosis, as a result of advances in medical therapy, has resulted in an increasing prevalence of cystic fibrosis-related diabetes (CFRD). CFRD is associated with accelerated pulmonary decline and increased mortality. Pulmonary effects are ...

Phase N/A

Adherence to Airway Clearance. Novel Approaches to Improving Adherence

Background:- Airway clearance using an airway clearance technique (ACT) is one of the core treatments for children with chronic lung diseases such as cystic fibrosis, periciliary dyskinesia, and non-CF bronchiectasis who are unable to clear their secretions effectively. One of the most frequently used ACTs is called positive expiratory pressure ...

Phase N/A

The Use of Home Oral Glucose Tolerance Test Kit in Screening Cystic Fibrosis Related Diabetes

Cystic fibrosis related diabetes (CFRD) is the most common secondary complication of Cystic fibrosis. It affects nearly 20% of adolescents and 40-50% of adults. Undiagnosed CFRD is associated with significant decline in lung function and nutritional status with an increase in mortality. This emphasises the importance of screening for CFRD ...

Phase N/A

Pulmonary Rehabilitation in Non-Cystic Fibrosis Bronchiectasis

Bronchiectasis is characterized by pathological and irreversible dilation of bronchi caused by the inefficient removal of secretions and microorganisms and the perpetuation of inflammatory processes induced by chronic or recurrent infections, causing more damage to the airways that result in infections, and greater lesion airways and lung parenchyma. Pulmonary rehabilitation ...

Phase N/A

Respiratory Function at Preschool Age of Children Detected of Cystic Fibrosis in Neonatal Period

The widespread neonatal detection of cystic fibrosis in France since 2002 permits to treat children from birth. New treatments used for young children involve to assess efficacy criteria specific to this population. Standard respiratory function criteria for older children and adults is forced expiratory volume/second. This technique is not suited ...

Phase N/A

Impact of Telerehabilitation Training on Pediatric Cystic Fibrosis Patients: An Exploratory Study

Fitness in patients with Cystic fibrosis (CF) is an important biomarker associated with higher survivability and improved quality of life. CF patients are encouraged to maintain an active lifestyle, however, while physicians are able to prescribe airway clearance measures or specific medications, there is no prescription for exercise or avenue ...

Phase N/A

LBM & Lung Function in Adolescents With CF

In patients with Cystic Fibrosis (CF) the commonest cause of death is respiratory failure. Respiratory failure can have many causes. However, in patients with CF a major contributor is the impairment of the muscles required for breathing (respiratory muscles). Respiratory muscle impairment can result from severe narrowing of the airways, ...

Phase N/A

Special Investigation (All Cases) of LipaCreon in Patients With Pancreatic Exocrine Insufficiency Due to Cystic Fibrosis

This study aims at collecting the information related to the safety and effectiveness in the pancreatic exocrine insufficiency patients due to cystic fibrosis receiving the treatment with LipaCreon in order to evaluate the effective and safe use of LipaCreon.

Phase N/A

Study to Evaluate the Safety Tolerability Pharmacokinetics and Exploratory Efficacy Parameters of AIR DNase in Patients With Cystic Fibrosis Previously Treated With Pulmozyme

This is a proof-of-concept, open label study, to evaluate the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics and exploratory efficacy of 2.5 mg AIR DNase TM administered once daily for 28 days via inhalation to Cystic Fibrosis subjects who have previously been treated with Pulmozyme. This multicenter study will be conducted in approximately 10 ...


Cystic Fibrosis Diagnosis by Analyzing Nasal Brushing

Autosomal recessive, CF is caused by mutations in the CFTR gene whose nature determines the clinical expression and severity of the disease affecting mainly the respiratory, digestive and genital. Respiratory pathology is mainly responsible for the morbidity and mortality of patients with cystic fibrosis. CFTR, which is ion channel carrying ...
