The purpose of this research study is to collect phlegm and blood to learn more about the presence of bacteria in patients with Cystic Fibrosis (CF) or Non-Cystic Fibrosis Bronchiectasis (NCFB). This exploratory research study does not involve the administration of any medication. There are approximately 4 visits (1 visit to see for subject eligibility, and 3 visits during the study) to complete the study participation. The study will take two months. About 100 subjects will take part study-wide.
This study is being done to compare the safety, effectiveness, and side effects of different doses of the drug being studied, BI 1265162, with a placebo, in subjects with Cystic Fibrosis (CF). You will be in this study for about 7 weeks. This study will involve study procedures such as, physical and chest exams, blood pressure and pulse, electrocardiograms, blood tests, pregnancy urine tests, breathing tests (pulmonary function tests and multiple breath washout tests), and completing a diary and questionnaires. Each dose of the study drug will consist of 2 puffs which will be taken 2 times per day using the Respimat® inhaler. This is an add-on therapy therefore subjects will continue to take their usual medications (including any therapy), and the treatment period for taking this add-on therapy is 4 weeks.
The purpose of this study is to learn more about the effectiveness and safety of the investigational drug called fenretinide (LAU-7b). The FDA has approved the testing of fenretinide in this study. Researchers hope that treatment with fenretinide will preserve lung function by reducing the persistent inflammation in the lung and to improve its capacity to defend against bacteria such as Pseudomonas aeruginosa. The drug will be administered by capsules. Your participation in this study will last approximately 7 months and includes 8 study visits to the study center (which will last approximately 2-5 hours) and 6 telephone calls. The phone calls are expected to last 10-15 minutes and depend on the amount of information you report.
This study is designed to evaluate ABBV-3067 alone and in combination with ABBV-2222 to see how safe they are and how well they work for treating cystic fibrosis. The study will also help select the minimum effective dose of both medicines. Both drugs are investigational and will be taken orally. Both help to restore Cystic Fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) activity, which is when there isn't enough water on membrane surfaces for those who have cystic fibrosis. You will either receive the drug or a placebo. The study will be done in approximately 3 months. Approximately 189 patients with cystic fibrosis who are older than 18 years of age will be enrolled in this study.
The purpose of this study is to learn more about the effectiveness and safety of VX-561 used in patients with cystic fibrosis. Patients who have cystic fibrosis and are currently taking a stable dose of ivacaftor (IVA) are invited to take part in this research study. VX-561 is a form of IVA, an approved medication for some types of CF, that lasts longer in the body, allowing the medicine to be taken once a day instead of twice a day. Participation could last for approximately 20 weeks. There will be approximately 88 people participating in this study.
The main purpose of this study is to see if important factors can be identified in each of the three categories (patient, catheter, and catheter management) that are linked to blood clotting complications. This is a multicenter, prospective observational study to evaluate risk factors associated with complications of peripherally inserted central catheter (PICCs) and midline catheters. Both adult and pediatric patients with CF who receive care at participating centers will be eligible for participation. This study can last for 2 weeks.
This is an observational study which will collect sweat chloride values from approximately 1000 cystic fibrosis subjects who are currently on cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) modulators. This study will require one visit to an MUSC clinic which will last approximately 2 hours. Compensation is provided.
This is a research study to test a new investigational drug, PTI-801. An investigational drug is one that is not approved by the US FDA. In this study, PTI-801 will be compared to placebo (a capsule that looks like the investigational drug, but does not contain an active drug substance). Although PTI-801 has been given to normal healthy adults, this is the FIRST time that PTI-801 has been given to people with CF.
This study has two parts and will assess your hearing and the potential effects of antibiotic-induced ototoxicity. Ototoxicity is a potential effect of drugs used to treat your lung infections, and its effect on your ears (oto=ears), particularly structures in your inner ear that enable hearing and balance. Part One of the study will assess your inner ear function that may be associated with hearing loss and / or loss of balance in cystic fibrosis patients taking tobramycin. Part Two is looking to determine if SPI-1005, an investigational drug, influences hearing loss, due to mediations (tobramycin).
