Steroid Withdrawal Intervention in Fife and Tayside

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is the third leading cause of death worldwide and a major cause of morbidity in the UK. Inhaled corticosteroids (ICS) are frequently prescribed to patients with COPD and these medications represent a major burden on the National Health Service in terms of drug costs. They ...

Phase N/A

The Effect of Twice Daily vs. Once Daily Bronchodilation on Hyperinflation in COPD Patients During 24 Hours.

To study the effect of twice daily dual bronchodilation (Aclidinium Bromide/Formoterol Fumarate 340/12 mcg) versus once daily single bronchodilation (Tiotropium 'respimat' 5 mcg) in patients with COPD on 24-hour static and dynamic hyperinflation, spirometry respiratory symptoms and sleep quality.


Study of Lung Proteins in Patients With Pneumonia

OBJECTIVE The objective of this study is to analyze bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) fluid from patients with lung infiltrates in order to discover new biomarkers and protein/peptide expression patterns that are associated with specific types of pulmonary diseases and infections. Bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) is a standard method to obtain lower airway ...

Phase N/A

Accessing Mobility Using Wearable Sensors

Our specific research questions: (1) Which motor-cognitive parameters measurable by wearable sensors (e.g. gait, balance, frailty index, etc) are linked to specific diseases (e.g. COPD, CHF) (2) Which motor-cognitive parameters are most responsive to identify changes in patients ambulatory performance related to Tele-rehabilitation We will recruit a minimum of 15 ...


Effects of High Flow Nasal Cannula on Sputum Clearance in Acute Exacerbation of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a major cause of morbidity and the 4th leading cause of mortality in the world. Acute exacerbation of COPD usually presents with more sputum production leading to worsening airflow obstruction. During an exacerbation, high flow nasal cannula (HFNC) has shown to reduce blood carbon ...

Phase N/A

Peripheral Nerve Blocks for Above-the-knee Amputations

Avoidance of general anesthesia in certain high-risk patient populations may have additional benefits beyond improved postoperative pain scores and analgesic consumption. The primary objective of this research will be to evaluate the ability of the femoral, sciatic, lateral femoral cutaneous nerve (LFCN), and obturator blocks to provide surgical anesthesia.


The CAPTURE Study: Validating a Unique COPD Case Finding Tool in Primary Care (Aim 3)

This is a large prospective, multi-center study explore the impact of the CAPTURE tool on clinical care and patient outcomes across a broad range of primary care settings in a cluster randomized controlled clinical trial. The CAPTURE tool consists of a 5-item self-administered questionnaire and selected use of peak expiratory ...

Phase N/A

Home Pulmonary Rehabilitation for COPD

This study will test the effectiveness of a home-base pulmonary rehabilitation program, that includes off-the-shelf technology (Android computer tablet, Nonin pulse oximeter and Garmin Fitness Tracker), health coaching and an online platform that allows a health coach to review patient monitoring and progress. The comparison will be a wait-list control ...

Phase N/A

ZAVI APD ELF Protocol v2.2

Ceftazidime/Avibactam (CAZ/AVI) is a novel antibiotic drug that has recently become available. It consists of a -lactam/-lactamase fixed drug combination with an almost exclusively Gram-negative spectrum and is indicated for the treatment of: complicated intra-abdominal infections (cIAI) complicated urinary tract infection (cUTI), including pyelonephritis hospital-acquired pneumonia including ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) ...


Roflumilast or Azithromycin to Prevent COPD Exacerbations (RELIANCE)

RELIANCE is a U.S.-based pragmatic clinical trial funded by the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) to compare long-term use of roflumilast vs. azithromycin in up to 3,200 patients. It is intended to support hospital efforts to reduce the risk of all-cause hospitalization and reduce pre-mature deaths in individuals with chronic ...
