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

IV Colistin for Pulmonary Exacerbations: Improving Safety and Efficacy

The purpose of this study is to find the safest and most effective way to administer IV antibiotics to treat acute pulmonary exacerbations (APEs) in patients with cystic fibrosis (CF) that are caused by pathogens, like Pseudomonas aeruginosa. This study will test the safety and effectiveness of two commonly prescribed ...

Phase

Evaluation of Short Antibiotic Combination Courses Followed by Aerosols in Cystic Fibrosis

The aim of this study is to investigate the efficacy of antibiotic therapy with any antibiotic (IV) and IV (Nebcin) tobramycin for 5 days followed by Solution for nebuliser inhalation (Tobi) for 9 days and antibiotic cures using 14 days of tobramycin IV. In the case of positive results, the ...

Trial in Non-cystic Fibrosis Bronchiectasis Patients With Chronic Lung Infections Treated With Colistimethate Sodium (PROMIS-2)

The co-primary objectives of the trial are to investigate the effect of the use of inhaled colistimethate sodium, administered twice daily via the I-neb for 24 months, compared to placebo in subjects with non-cystic fibrosis bronchiectasis (NCFB) chronically infected with P. aeruginosa on: the frequency of pulmonary exacerbations; the number ...

Phase

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

Tobramycin Delivered by Nebulized Sonic Aerosol for Chronic Rhinosinusitis Treatment of Cystic Fibrosis Patients

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is the most common lethal autosomal recessive disorder in the Caucasian population affecting ~1:3000 children, with a carrier frequency of 1:25. It is a multisystem disorder where pulmonary and sinonasal involvements occur in 90-100% of patients, and up to 86% of children have nasal polyps . Patients ...

Phase

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

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

Study Assessing the Safety Tolerability Pharmacokinetics Food Effect and Drug-Drug Interactions of PTI-801 in Healthy Volunteers and Safety Tolerability and Pharmacokinetics of PTI-801 in Subjects With Cystic Fibrosis

PART 1 The SAD treatment group is comprised of three cohorts where HV will be randomized to either PTI-801 or placebo. Following the conclusion of at least three SAD cohorts, a set of HV will participate in an assigned MAD treatment group. The MAD treatment group is comprised of three ...

Phase

Modulation of Intestinal and Pulmonary Inflammation by Lactobacillus Diet Supplementation in Pediatric Cystic Fibrosis

Pulmonary inflammation is an independent risk factor for disease progression in cystic fibrosis patients (CF). Yet, no effective treatment is known to reduce this detrimental inflammation. Dysbiosis of the gut microbiota has been linked to inflammation in several inflammatory diseases. As children with CF have different faecal microbiota from their ...
