Phase III, comparative, multicenter, randomized, controlled, double-blind and superiority research, comparing rituximab-based regimen with conventional therapeutic strategy for the induction of remission in patients with eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis (EGPA). Patients with newly diagnosed or relapsing EGPA will be randomized in a 1:1 ratio to receive: - Experimental therapeutic strategy based on the use of rituximab (experimental group) - Conventional therapeutic strategy based on Five-Factor Score (FFS)-assessed disease severity (comparative group)
Interstitial lung disease (ILD) is characterised by inflammation and scarring of the lung and is the leading cause of death in patients with systemic sclerosis, and contributes significantly to morbidity and mortality in many other connective tissue diseases (CTDs) such as polymyositis/dermatomyositis and mixed connective tissue disease. When ILD is extensive and/or progressive, immunosuppressive medication is often required to stabilize lung disease and alleviate symptoms. Current standard care for CTD associated ILD is extrapolated from studies performed in individuals with systemic sclerosis and comprises low dose corticosteroids and...
The purpose of this study is to investigate inherited genetic factors that play a role in the development of familial pulmonary fibrosis and to identify a group of genes that predispose individuals to develop pulmonary fibrosis. Finding the genes that cause pulmonary fibrosis is the first step at developing better methods for early diagnosis and improved treatment for pulmonary fibrosis. The overall hypothesis is that inherited genetic factors predispose individuals to develop pulmonary fibrosis.
This is a multicenter, randomized (1:1 inhaled treprostinil: placebo), double-blinded, placebo-controlled trial to evaluate the safety and efficacy of inhaled treprostinil in subjects with pre-capillary pulmonary hypertension (PH) associated with interstitial lung disease (ILD) including combined pulmonary fibrosis and emphysema (CPFE). The study will include about 314 patients at approximately 120 clinical trial centers. The treatment phase of the study will last approximately 16 weeks. Patients who complete all required assessments will also be eligible to enter an open-label, extension study (RIN-PH-202).
The purpose of this study is to investigate the safety and tolerability of two dose regimens of IFX-1 as add-on to standard of care (SOC) in subjects with GPA and MPA compared with placebo.
This is a randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind, 6-month study followed by a 6 month open-label extension phase to evaluate the efficacy, safety, and tolerability of MN-001 in moderate to severe IPF patients. MN-001 750 mg or matching placebo will be orally administered twice daily over a 26 week period in subjects with a confirmed diagnosis of IPF per the ATS )American Thoracic Society) 2011 Guidelines. Approximately 15 subjects are planned to be enrolled. This study will consist of two treatment arms, MN-001 and matching placebo. Randomization will occur in a 2:1 ratio (MN-001: placebo). Eligible subjects will consist of males and...
Objective: Determine whether treatment of perceived stress, anxiety, and depression with anti-depressant therapy improves dyspnea scores, 6-minute walk (6MW) distance and quality of life (QoL) in patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and ILD (Interstitial Lung Disease) undergoing pulmonary rehab. The study is a prospective, randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled study to assess the effect of an SSRI on 6MW, dyspnea scores, and QoL in COPD and ILD patients undergoing pulmonary rehab. Thirty subjects that carry an ICD-9 code diagnosis of COPD and/or ILD and CES-D (Center for Epidemiologic Studies Depression)...
TRK-250 is a nucleic acid medicine that inhibits the progression of pulmonary fibrosis by selectively suppressing the expression of transforming growth factor-beta 1 (TGF-β1) protein, at the gene expression level. This study is a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled Phase I study. The primary objective of the study is to assess the safety and tolerability of single and multiple inhaled doses of TRK-250 in subjects with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF).
This clinical trial is the first-in-human study of BBT-877. The purpose of this phase 1 study is to assess the safety and tolerability of single and multiple ascending oral doses of BBT-877 in healthy adult subjects.
The goal of this study is to evaluate the diagnostic agreement between, on the one hand, ultra-low dose CT and MRI with UTE pulse sequences, and on the other hand, standard CT scan, to quantify lung parenchyma patterns in thoracic sarcoidosis.
