Evaluate the Remission MAINtenance Using Extended Administration of Prednisone in Systemic Anti-neutrophil Cytoplasmic Antibodies (ANCA)-Associated Vasculitis.
Immunosuppressive therapy of granulomatosis with polyangiitis (GPA, Wegener's) and microscopic polyangiitis (MPA) has transformed the outcome from death to a strong likelihood of disease control and temporary remission. However, most patients have recurrent relapses that lead to damage and require repeated treatment associated with long-term morbidity and death. Rituximab has been shown to be as effective as cyclophosphamide to induce remission and maintenance of remission in severe GPA and MPA patients, with an acceptable safety profile . Although rituximab is becoming the standard of care for maintenance therapy in these ...
Evaluation of Efficacy and Safety of Pamrevlumab in Patients With Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis
This is a Phase 3 trial to evaluate the efficacy and safety of 30 mg/kg intravenous (IV) infusions of pamrevlumab administered every 3 weeks as compared to placebo in subjects with Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis
Evaluation of Efficacy and Safety of PLN-74809 in Patients With Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis
A Phase 2a, multicenter, 3-part, randomized, double-blind, dose-ranging, placebo-controlled study to evaluate the safety, tolerability, and PK of once-daily treatment with PLN-74809 in participants with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis.
Evaluation of Novel Lung Function Parameters and Quantitative Computed Tomography (qCT) in Patients With Pulmonary Disease
Current diagnostic tools used in pulmonary disease often do not meet the challenges set by the respective pathophysiology. The investigators therefore aimed to evaluate novel or not widely used diagnostic approaches for the detection and therapeutic monitoring of patients with various pulmonary diseases.
Evaluation of Novel Lung Function Parameters in Patients With Interstitial Lung Disease (ILD)
Current diagnostic tools used in interstitial lung disease (ILD) do not meet the challenges set by the complex pathophysiology of this heterogenous group. The investigators therefore aimed to evaluate novel or not widely used diagnostic approaches for the detection and therapeutic monitoring of patients with various ILDs.
Evaluation of Oral ORIN1001 in Subjects With Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF)
This Phase 1b trial is a double-blind, placebo-controlled, multiple ascending dose study to evaluate the safety and tolerability of oral ORIN1001 at 25 mg, 50 mg or 100 mg administered daily for up to 28 days in adult subjects with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) alone or in conjunction with local Standard of Care for IPF (pirfenidone or nintedanib). A maximum of 24 evaluable subjects will be required to complete the study. The study will consist of 3 dose cohorts each enrolling a maximum of 8 subjects randomized either to the active (5 subjects) group or placebo (3 subjects) group. Each subject will receive daily oral doses of...
Evaluation of Pneumoconiosis High Risk Early Warning Models
Precaution of pneumoconiosis is more important than treatment. However, the current process can't early warn the high-risk dust exposed workers until they are diagnosed with pneumoconiosis. With the feature of efficiency, impersonality and quantification, artificial intelligence is just appropriate for solving this problems. Therefore, we are aiming at adapting deep learning to develop models of pneumoconiosis intelligent detection, grade diagnosis and high risk early warning. The annotated images will be used for convolutional neural networks (CNNs) algorithm training, aiming at pneumoconiosis screening and grade diagnosis....
Evaluation of Post-covid 19 Patients Who Receive Ozonetheraphy With Thorax CT
It is known that enhances wound healing by oxidative stress and supports immune system besides it is cheap and has not any side effects. Aim of the study is to prevent pulmonary fibrosis by using ozone therapy as a supportive therapy on the patients who have pneumonia and ground glass opacity on thorax CT both in ICU and wards. Patients will follow for a year.
Evolution of Lung 18FDG Uptake in Patients With Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis and Receiving Pirfenidone
Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a rare and fatal lung disease characterized by unpredictable changes with variable kinetics of progression. Changes in pulmonary function (FVC, DLCO) assessed at the time of diagnosis, or decline in pulmonary function within 12 months after diagnosis, are the best predictors of survival, but poorly predicted disease activity and evolution. 18FDG positron emission tomography (18FDG PETscan) provides the ability to quantify cell metabolism in vivo and non-invasively using a labeled non-metabolizable substrate. Several parameters can be measured in an automated and reproducible way, such as the...
Examination of Pirfenidone (Esbriet®) Therapy in Coal Workers' Pneumoconiosis With Pulmonary Fibrosis
Examination of pirfenidone (Esbriet®) therapy in coal workers' pneumoconiosis (black lung) with pulmonary fibrosis (scarring of the lung).
