Accepts Healthy Volunteers
Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms
An interventional clinical study is where participants are assigned to receive one or more interventions (or no intervention) so that researchers can evaluate the effects of the interventions on biomedical or health-related outcomes.
An observational clinical study is where participants identified as belonging to study groups are assessed for biomedical or health outcomes.
Searching Both is inclusive of interventional and observational studies.
|Observational [Patient Registry]|
|Eligible Ages||18 Years - 80 Years|
- - The inclusion criteria are adult patients (≥18 years) diagnosed with CTD with signed informed consent.
- - Exclusion criteria are patients with a serious co-morbidity interfering with the course of interstitial lung disease or pulmonary hypertension.
This trial id was obtained from ClinicalTrials.gov, a service of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, providing information on publicly and privately supported clinical studies of human participants with locations in all 50 States and in 196 countries.
Phase 1: Studies that emphasize safety and how the drug is metabolized and excreted in humans.
Phase 2: Studies that gather preliminary data on effectiveness (whether the drug works in people who have a certain disease or condition) and additional safety data.
Phase 3: Studies that gather more information about safety and effectiveness by studying different populations and different dosages and by using the drug in combination with other drugs.
Phase 4: Studies occurring after FDA has approved a drug for marketing, efficacy, or optimal use.
The sponsor is the organization or person who oversees the clinical study and is responsible for analyzing the study data.
|Medical University Innsbruck|
The person who is responsible for the scientific and technical direction of the entire clinical study.
|Judith Löffler-Ragg, Prof. MD|
|Principal Investigator Affiliation||Medical University Innsbruck, Department Internal Medicine|
Category of organization(s) involved as sponsor (and collaborator) supporting the trial.
The disease, disorder, syndrome, illness, or injury that is being studied.
|Connective Tissue Diseases, Interstitial Lung Disease, Systemic Sclerosis|
Specifically, this registry will collect demographic data, disease-related clinical data, routine laboratory values (including antibody-profile and iron status), diagnostic procedures, significant comorbidities, therapeutic managements (e.g. thoracic ultrasound, HRCT), and disease outcomes over 10 years. In addition, blood biobank samples for translational research will be collected in a subgroup of patients with systemic sclerosis over serial time points to study the systemic inflammatory and profibrotic phenotype of patients. In summary, this registry will monitor the disease course of pulmonary manifestations of patients with CTD and may be hypothesis-generating and provide new insights in underlying inflammatory/pro-fibrotic patterns.
