the PHENOSAR Trial: Use of Antibiotics in Treatment of Sarcoidosis
In this study it is investigated whether treatment with azithromycin in combination with doxycycline reduces the bacterial load of C. acnes in granulomatous tissue of patients with sarcoidosis and subsequently decreases the inflammatory activation measured by FDG uptake and serum biomarkers.
Therapeutic Antioxidant Supplementation
A remotely administered study, non-randomized, non-blinded, controlled parallel assignment phase 2 trial to determine if oral inosine or inositol hexaphosphate will provide an effective long-term therapy to combat or slow neural damage progression either concurrently with existing iron chelation therapy or during the natural course of the disorder. Clinical changes in hearing, balance, and mobility, and cognition will be assessed for 36 months through patient-reported outcomes of study assigned assessments.
The SHIELD Whole Lung Lavage Study
An observational cohort study that will assess the efficacy of Whole Lung Lavage in workers with silicosis or silica-induced bronchitis.
Thorax MRI for Evaluation of Lung Morphology, Ventilation and Perfusion
In spite of the considerable technical difficulties, several publications confirm the potential that T1-maps and MRI to characterize pathological changes in lung tissue. However, existing literature still cannot provide a final evaluation of the presented methods. Study participants won't have any disadvantage in participating the study since all of them undergo next to the MRI-Scan also the two standard methods: CT and lung function test. In this study the value of chest MR compared to CT and LFT in the evaluation of morphological lung changes and their correlation to lung ventilation and perfusion will be evaluated.
Vaccination of Ex-acute COVID-19 Patients With Fibrosing Lung Syndrome at Discharge
Methodology: This is a controlled, randomized, multicenter open-label Phase Ib clinical exploratory trial in patients with fibrosing interstitial lung disease secondary to SARS-CoV-2 infection. Patients who give informed consent will be screened for enrolment in the study. Patients that meet the eligibility criteria will be enrolled and randomly allocated in the control arm (best standard of care) or the experimental arm (best standard of care plus IN01 vaccination). The patients enrolled in the control arm of the study will receive standard of care. The primary endpoint is safety, measured by the Frequency and...
Xenon MRI and Progressive ILD
The XENON ILD study is a single arm, un-blinded study at Duke University enrolling patients with non-idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) progressive fibrosis (PF) interstitial lung disease (ILD). Patients who meet criteria for ILD-progression (defined below in inclusion/exclusion criteria) will be consented prior to the initiation of anti-fibrotic therapy. Subjects will undergo an approximately hour long comprehensive MRI protocol, including administration of multiple doses of hyperpolarized 129Xe. The subjects will have this initial study prior to initiation of anti-fibrotic therapies and repeat MRI studies at 3, 6 and 12 months...
An Expanded Access Program in Belgium to Provide Nintedanib to People With Lung Diseases Called Non-IPF ILDs Who Have no Alternative Treatment Options
This Expanded Access Program in Belgium is open to people with different lung diseases. This program provides a medicine called nintedanib to people who have no alternative treatment options. They can participate if they have a type of lung disease called non-IPF ILDs (chronic fibrosing interstitial lung diseases with a progressive phenotype other than idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis). Participants take 2 capsules of nintedanib a day. The treating physician checks the health of the participants and notes health problems that could have been caused by nintedanib. Participants receive nintedanib as long as they benefit or until...
Expanded Access for Patients With Pulmonary Hypertension Associated With Pulmonary Fibrosis
An expanded access program that provides INOpulse treatment to patients with serious disease or conditions associated with pulmonary hypertension associated with pulmonary fibrosis who are not able to participate in the Sponsor's ongoing Phase 3 REBUILD clinical.
Infusion of Allogeneic Mesenchymal Stem Cells in Patients With Diffuse Cutaneous Systemic Sclerosis With Refractory Pulmonary Involvement
Progressive SSc is an entity with limited therapeutic alternatives and with asurvival rate of less than 45% in the first 3 to 5 years. The disease causessevere limitation in quality of life ranging from functional limitation to depression. Up to 20% of patients will be refractory to conventional treatment with diseasemodifying anti-rheumatic drugs (DMARDs) and cyclophosphamide therapy.This favors the progression to visceral involvement including gastrointestinal,lung and pulmonary hypertension. The latter being a poor prognostic factor,increases mortality in this group of patients and drastically affects their qualityof life. For...
