Cystic Fibrosis Clinical Trials

A listing of Cystic Fibrosis medical research trials actively recruiting patient volunteers. Search for closest city to find more detailed information on a research study in your area.

RESULTS

Found (134) clinical trials

This Study will not provide or recommend any treatment or any changes to your standard medical care. If you participate, there will not be any additional doctor visits outside of your standard medical visits to the Cystic Fibrosis Care Centers. Participation in this Study will not require any additional time ...

Phase N/A

This study is designed to evaluate genetic mechanisms of lung disease by surveying polymorphic genes involved in respiratory function and examining gene expression in the lung cells of individuals with pulmonary disease (e.g., alpha 1-antitrypsin deficiency, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, cystic fibrosis, sarcoidosis, history of infection, and genetic mutations ...

Phase N/A

The purpose of the study is to find changes in fat or muscle content in participants with Cystic Fibrosis (CF) and to examine their impact on blood sugar and overall health.  

Phase N/A

ICM to Evaluate the Activation of p.Phe508del-CFTR by Lumacaftor in Combination With Ivacaftor

Study design. This academic investigator - initiated trial will resolve the key issue whether, and if yes, to what extent and variability, the treatment with lumacaftor in combination with ivacaftor (Orkambi) will reverse the p.Phe508del CFTR - mediated basic defect in p.Phe508del homozygous subjects with cystic fibrosis under real life ...

Phase N/A

Prognostic Value of Functional Exercise Test (EFX) in Cystic Fibrosis

Current guidelines for referring cystic fibrosis (CF) patients for lung transplantation, based on clinical and functional resting parameters, are insufficient to predict 3-year mortality. Previous studies have shown that sex, impaired pulmonary function, undernutrition and colonization of the respiratory tract by Pseudomonas aeruginosa are associated with a poor prognosis. Current ...

Phase N/A

Inflammatory Markers in Broncho-alveolar Lavage Fluid as Risk Factors for Lung Disease in Infants With Cystic Fibrosis: the I-BALL Study

Rationale: Airway disease, featuring early and intense inflammation and leading to progressive lung damage, is the main cause of morbidity and mortality in cystic fibrosis (CF). Mechanisms of CF airway inflammation remain unclear, hampering development of better treatments. Recent introduction of heel-prick screening for CF provides a unique longitudinal cohort ...

Phase N/A

Nasal Potential Difference (NPD) for the Diagnosis of Cystic Fibrosis

Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is an autosomal recessive systemic disorder of exocrine glands and secretory epithelia. The disease results from mutations in the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) gene which cause a variety of abnormalities. CFTR is absent or dysfunctional in cystic fibrosis. Most of the defects in CFTR result ...

Phase N/A

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 ...

Phase N/A

The Alfred Step Test Exercise Protocols (A-STEP and A-STEPmax): Developed for Adults With Cystic Fibrosis

Many international centers now regard exercise testing as highly important with many measuring maximal exercise capacity annually to monitor disease progression, identify physical status and to drive changes in medical, physiotherapy or nutritional management (14,15). Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing (CPET): The current best practice for assessing VO2max in adults with CF ...

Phase N/A

Muscle Accrual and Function in Cystic Fibrosis-Impact of Glucose Intolerance

Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is a lethal inherited disease that primarily affects the lungs but also confers a high risk of diabetes, with up to 40-50% of adults experiencing Cystic Fibrosis-related diabetes (CFRD). CFRD is associated with an accelerated decline in lung function, nutritional status and survival and despite treatment mortality ...
