Clinical Characteristics of Interstitial Pneumonia With Autoimmune Features (IPAF) - a Multicenter Prospective Study
Interstitial pneumonia with autoimmune features (IPAF) was defined in 2015 by the Working Group of the European Respiratory Society (ERS) and the American Thoracic Society (ATS) as interstitial pneumonia with some clinical and/or serological features suggesting presence of an underlying autoimmune disorder. However, ofiicial criteria for diagnosis of an autoimmune disease are not met. Aims of the study: 1. Determine the incindence of IPAF in comparison with interstitial lung diseases (ILDs) and classic autoimmune diseases (ADs) in polish pulmonological centers. 2. Clinical, serological, functional and...
CXCL10 As a Biomarker Of ILD in Patients WithRA
Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic inﬂammatory disease that affects the joints, causing symmetric pain, stiffness, swelling, and limited motion and function of multiple joints, its ﬁbro inﬂammatory manifestations may develop in other organs.
Development of Airway Absorption Sampling Methods
The study will measure airway inflammation in probable idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) and sarcoidosis as well as in healthy volunteers. This can help understand the molecular basis of these diseases, why these diseases happen, and what makes patients develop lung fibrosis. These insights should one day help to monitor patients and aid in their diagnosis and treatment.
Development of BREATHE-ALD, a Shared Decision-Making Intervention for Adults With Advanced Lung Disease
Interviews and surveys with 10 patients with advanced lung disease and 10 caregivers
Diagnostic Value of Transbronchial Lung Cryobiopsy
Evaluating the diagnostic value of transbronchial lung cryobiopsy (TBLC) as well as its procedural feasibility and safety in a prospective series of 20 patients with diffuse interstitial lung diseases (DILD) who are referred for invasive histopathological diagnostics
Dyspnea and Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis
Longitudinal prospective exploratory study on the evolution of dyspnea, in its sensory and affective dimensions, in patients followed for idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), between inclusion and a 6-month evaluation
Effect of Short-term Oxygen During CPET in ILD
In a randomized, sham-controlled crossover trial the investigators will test whether supplemental oxygen given during cardiopulmonary exercise testing will improve exercise performance and physiological parameters in patients with interstitial lung disease.
Effects of Pulmonary Diseases and Their Treatment on Cardiac Function
While the bidirectional relationship between the lung and the right heart are well studied, the cardiopulmonary interactions between the lung and the left heart are largely unresearched and not well understood. However, in recent years, there is a growing evidence that partially explains the bidirectional interaction between COPD and left heart. Systemic inflammation with multiorgan involvement is thought to play a role in COPD as a systemic disease. Some therapeutic approaches to COPD also appear to influence these cardiopulmonary interactions. While understanding these interactions is very important for clinicians, scientific data are ...
Efficacy and Safety of Nintedanib in the Treatment of Pulmonary Fibrosis in Patients With Moderate to Severe COVID -19
This center intends to conduct a single-center, randomized, placebo-controlled study to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of Nintedanib ethanesulfonate soft capsule in the treatment of pulmonary fibrosis in patients with moderate to severe COVID-19.
Efficacy and Safety of Pirfenidone Treatment in HPS-ILD
This research study will explore the safety and efficacy of the drug, pirfenidone, in patients with a diagnosis of Hermansky-Pudlak Syndrome (HPS) who have an associated interstitial lung disease (ILD) over a planned period of 56 weeks.
