To develop a repository of blood samples from patients with ILD to support future studies into the development of such biomarkers. Patients with pneumonia and healthy patients will also be recruited as a control group.
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.
"Antisynthetase syndrome (ASS) is one of the most severe inflammatory myopathy (IM), due to pulmonary involvement (interstitial lung disease, ILD). Until now, the most commonly used immunosuppresive therapy in Europe is Cyclophosphamide followed by different immunosuppressive drugs as maintenance therapy, including Azathioprine (and so called " European Strategy "). In the USA however, the first-line immunosuppressive treatment is Tacrolimus (so called " American Strategy "). None of these two different strategies has ever been studied prospectively, and there is no clear comparison of short and long-term treatment efficacy and tolerance....
The purpose of this large multicenter, randomized, double-blinded, controlled clinical study is to investigate the efficacy and safety of Cyclosporin A for primary Sjogren's syndrome associated pneumonitis(pSS-IP), which has important implications for the establishment of standardized diagnosis and treatment of pSS-IP.
The overall goal of this study is to identify risk and prognosis factors of Interstitial Lung Disease (ILD) in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA).
This study is aiming to evaluate the efficacy of denosumab among adult patients suffering from Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis (LCH).
The purpose of the study is to determine if miR200 family may serve as a biomarker of IPF.
Detection of Integrin avb6 in Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis and Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis with [18F]FP-R01-MG-F2 PET/CT
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.
COVID-19, the infectious disease caused by the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, currently poses a global economic, social, political and medical challenge. The virus originated in December 2019 in Wuhan, China, and has spread rapidly around the world. Currently, European countries, including Austria, are severely affected.The most common computed tomographic changes in acute lung injury include bilateral and subpleural milk glass opacity, consolidation in lower lobes, or both. In the intermediate phase of the infection (4-14 days after the onset of symptoms) a so-called "crazy paving" may occur. The most prominent radiological changes occur ...
