Summary

This study will assess how 18 months of oral mycophenolate will compare to 18 months of mycophenolate plus pirfenidone, in the treatment of Systemic Sclerosis related Interstitial Lung Disease. Tolerability and toxicity will also be assessed, during this study.
This research is designed to test whether combining pirfenidone and mycophenolate will result in a more rapid and possibly greater improvement in lung function than occurs when mycophenolate is used alone. While both of these drugs have been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat other medical conditions, neither drug has been FDA-approved for the treatment of scleroderma related lung disease. This research is being funded by the drug company, Genentech.

Summary

This study is for patients that have been diagnosed with mesothelioma. This study is to test whether giving one drug, atezolizumab, along with cisplatin and pemetrexed, before surgery and atezolizumab after surgery by vein is safe. Atezolizumab is the experimental cancer drug in this study, which has already been approved for the treatment of patients with bladder cancer and lung cancer. Participants can expect to be in this study for up to a year and followed for side effect for up to three years after study completion.

Summary

A sample of patients will be drawn from a cross-sectional cohort of pre- and post-abdominal and cardiothoracic transplant recipients from March 2018 through May 2018. 10 to 15 minute key informant interviews will be conducted with patients to ascertain their views and perceptions related to adherence pre- and post-transplant and use of technolgy. This data will be used to educate the transplant community about adherence from the patient's perspective.

A RANDOMIZED, DOUBLE-BLIND, PLACEBO-CONTROLLED CLINICAL STUDY TO ASSESS THE SAFETY AND EFFICACY OF PULSED, INHALED NITRIC OXIDE (iNO) IN SUBJECTS WITH PULMONARY HYPERTENSION ASSOCIATED WITH PULMONARY FIBROSIS ON LONG TERM OXYGEN THERAPY (PART 1 AND PART 2) Save

Summary

The purpose of this study is to determine if the study drug, inhaled nitric oxide, when given and breathed through an investigational study device called the INOpulse, may help treat PF. Inhaled nitric oxide is a drug approved by the FDA and Health Canada for the treatment of infants who have difficulty breathing and have decreased oxygen in their blood associated with pulmonary hypertension. Inhaled nitric oxide and the INOpulse delivery device are investigational for the treatment of PF with and without pulmonary hypertension and are not currently an approved treatment. Because we do not know if this drug and device combination will treat PF, we need to compare it against a placebo (a pretend drug that has no effect on a person). To do this, we will put people taking part in this study into two groups. The groups are selected by chance, like a coin toss. Participants in one group will be given the study drug while participants in the other group will be given the pretend drug.

Summary

30 adults, aged 40 and older with mild to moderate COPD, will be recruited for this study. Participants must be willing to continually wear a FitBit activity monitor, have access to a smartphone or Wi-Fi/Data-enabled iPad, and be willing to complete respiratory muscle strength training exercises as well as reports on their smartphone at least 5 times per week for a 6-week period. Participants will be given a bluetooth inhaler device and a training app (RESP-FIT). This application will collect inhaler data and allows patients to self-report their daily symptoms. The goal of this study is to test whether use of the personalized inhaler device with the app strengthens lung function, promotes physical activity, and improves disease symptom self-management in persons with COPD.

A Study to Evaluate a Panel of Blood Biomarkers for Use in Patients Undergoing Evaluation for Lung Cancer, ONC-LN-04 Save

Keywords
Cancer, Cancer/Lung, Lung, Pulmonary
Summary

The primary objective of this study is to develop a blood-based gene expression signature, known as the ONC-LN-04 Lung Test, to be used in the detection of lung cancer in patients who underwent radiologic screening for lung cancer and had lung nodules detected. We intend to enroll volunteers who are being evaluated by a Ralph H. Johnson VAMC pulmonologist as part of their standard medical care. Participants will be current or former smokers, who have either (a) radiologic evidence of lung nodules, or (b) a confirmed diagnosis of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and has not undergone surgical excision, chemotherapy or radiation therapy for this malignancy. A single blood sample will be obtained from willing participants, then stored and analyzed for measurement of gene expression and development of the ONC-LN-04 test. Active participation in this study will be over once a blood sample is obtained; however, we may need access to participants' medical records post-enrollment and sample collection in order to monitor medical outcomes. Review of participants' medical records will occur until up to approximately 2,500 subjects have been enrolled and have provided clinical information and a blood sample.
