A Prospective Observational Registry to describe the disease course and outcomes of Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis patients in a real-world clinical setting.
The purpose of this study is to generate a prospective database of all patients evaluated for diffuse parenchymal lung diseases to provide much needed data on the various disease aetiologies, incidence and prevalence rates, clinical and radiological presentations, pathologic correlations, disease progression and response to treatment, and final outcomes in this group of patients in Singapore.
The purpose of this study is to compare the effect of n-acetylcysteine (NAC) plus standard care with matched placebo plus standard of care in patients diagnosed with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) who have the TOLLIP rs3750920 TT genotype. The study will compare the time to a composite endpoint of relative decline in lung function [10% relative decline in forced vital capacity (FVC), first respiratory hospitalization, lung transplantation, or all-cause mortality] The secondary objectives will be to examine the effect of NAC on the components of the primary composite endpoint, the rates of clinical events, change in physiology, change...
The Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation Patient Registry will collect data on at least 2,000 patients with interstitial lung disease (ILD) at approximately 40 clinical sites in the US. The Registry is targeting enrollment of approximately 60% of the 2,000 ILD participants to have idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF). The aim of the Registry is to create a cohort of well-characterized patients with interstitial lung disease (ILD) for participation in retrospective and prospective research
This is an interventional double-blind randomized controlled trial, to investigate the short and long-term effects of a supervised exercise training program in patients with IPF, depending on alternate patterns of oxygen supplementation during PR.
This is an educational work. Thirty patients with pulmonary sarcoidosis will be included in the study and randomly selected into two training groups.One group will receive home inspiratory muscle training (IMT) for 15 minutes, twice a day, 7 days a week with the resh Threshold IMT 'device. In the IMT group, the initial training intensity will be determined by measuring the maximal inspiratory muscle strength (MIP) with the intraoral pressure measuring device, 30% of the measured (MIP) value will be started at the first evaluation and the new training intensity will be determined by calculating 30% of the measured value by repeating the MIP...
This study aims to evaluate the differences between patient's and their physicians' perception of quality of life and the effect of disease severity and co-morbidities. Patients and physicians will complete two sets of questionnaires at an initial clinic visit and again six months later.
The objective of the current research project is, by using high quality Swedish registry data, to evaluate use, tolerance and effect of anti-fibrotic drugs in IPF-patients. Secondary study objectives are to determine the clinical profile, determinants of treatment adherence, long-term safety and to describe the patient journey from the first sign of disease to end of treatment.
A pilot multicentric randomized controlled study investigating the feasibility of recruiting 50 pulmonary fibrosis patients in acute respiratory failure within 18 months. Additionally, exploratory efficacy and safety outcomes will be evaluated.
BERTHA study´s primary objective is to characterize Rheumatoid Arthritis-associated Interstitial Lung Disease (RA-ILD) progression and to define a combination of protein biomarkers, genetic and clinical variables capable of identifying pts at risk of RA-ILD progression
