Clinical Course of Interstitial Lung Diseases: European IPF Registry and Biobank
Born out of the European Union 7th Framework Programme funded project European IPF Network (eurIPFnet), the European IPF Registry (eurIPFreg) has become Europe's leading database of longitudinal data from IPF patients, including control groups of patients with other lung diseases. The registry was initiated with the intention of creating a permanent and continuously growing record of well defined data on IPF in Europe, in order to increase the chances of finding better treatment options for this devastating disease. Clinical colleagues who would like to actively participate (both in terms of patient recruitment and data analysis)...
Clinical Efficacy and Safety of Autologous Lung Stem Cell Transplantation in Patients With Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis
Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a chronic and ultimately fatal disease characterized by a progressive damage of lung structure and decline in lung function.This study intends to carry out an open, single-center, non-randomized, self control phase I clinical trial. During the treatment, lung stem cells will be isolated from patients' own bronchi and expanded in vitro. Cultured cells will be injected directly into the lesion by fiberoptic bronchoscopy after lavage. After twelve-month observation, the investigators will evaluate the safety and efficacy of the treatment by measuring the key clinical indicators.
Clinical Impact of HOME Oxygen SATURation Measurement (SATURHOME)
The use of saturometry at home is more and more widespread in patients suffering from interstitial pulmonary diseases (IPD), the patients seeing it as reassurance and a concrete way to follow the evolution of their disease. However, there are no studies evaluating the real clinical benefit of taking saturation at home in this population. In addition, clinical experience seems rather to demonstrate an increase in the anxiety level and the number of clinically unnecessary consultations related to the use of this measure. The secondary objectives are to determine the impact of this measurement on: (1) the health care use (telephone...
Clinical Study of Allogeneic Adipovarian Active Protein in the Treatment of Severe Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis
The goal of this clinical trail is to study the efficacy and safety of allogeneic adipocyclical active protein in the treatment of severe idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. The main questions it aims to answer are: 1. Efficacy of allogeneic adipromic active protein in the treatment of severe idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis 2. Safety of allogeneic adipovularic active protein in the treatment of severe idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. A total of 7 participants will be enrolled. Participants will be asked that they will receive 2ml of each nebulized inhalation Cell Free Fat Extract (CEFFE), inhaled every 3 days, for...
Clinical Study of MMF in Treatment of IIM-ILD and Its Effect on Peripheral Blood Treg Cells
Interstitial lung disease (ILD) is a common pulmonary manifestation of idiopathic inflammatory myopathy (IIM). The overall 5-year mortality is 50%. The prognosis is poor and the treatment is challenging.At present, according to the consensus of IIM-ILD experts, glucocorticoids as first-line treatment are often used in high doses and have a variety of adverse reactions. Previous studies have shown that cyclophosphamide (CYC) is effective for IIM-ILD and tends to be used in rapidly progressive interstitial lung disease（RP-ILD）or refractory ILD. However, CYC is an alkylating agent with many toxic and side effects. It is prone to gonadal...
Clinical Transcriptomics in Systemic Vasculitis (CUTIS)
Multi-center observational study to evaluate the histopathology and transcriptome of cutaneous lesions in patients with several different types of vasculitis.
Clinical Trial to Evaluate the Safety and Efficacy of DWN12088 in Patients With IPF
This is a randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled multicenter study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of DWN12088 in patients with Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis.
Cohort of IPF Patients Experiencing an Exacerbation
Extension of the PFBIO cohort which includes patients with newly diagnosed idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) for longitudinal follow-up for up to 5 years. In the PFBIO-EXA extension, patients are included if they experience an exacerbation, or other increase in respiratory symptoms requiring hospital admission, for further collection of clinical and biological data.
Collagen-targeted PET Imaging for Early Interstitial Lung Disease
The goal of this study is to investigate the ability of [68Ga]CBP8 to detect collagen deposition in early interstitial lung disease.
Collection of Airway, Blood and/or Urine Specimens From Subjects for Research Studies
The purpose of this study is to obtain biologic materials from the blood, airways and/or urine of normal individuals and individuals with lung disease. The normal are used to establish a set of normal ranges for various parameters. These provide control information when compared to individuals with various pulmonary diseases, and will help in understanding of the etiology and pathogenesis of various lung diseases. The underlying hypothesis is that the pathologic morphological changes in the airway epithelium must be preceded by changes in the gene expression pattern of the airway epithelium and potentially in macrophages.
