The purpose of this study is to compare an imaging procedure called high-resolution computed tomography (HRCT) against the standard pulmonary function tests (PFTs) to see if HRCT is better at showing if the standard glucocorticoid treatment is working. This study also includes testing of blood samples for biomarkers which are measurable indicators of the severity or presence of some disease state. The maximum time you will be in the study is 3 months. During this time, you will need to visit the study site 6 times for 6 site study visits. This study will enroll subjects with a diagnosis of pulmonary sarcoidosis at stage II or III who have shortness of breath (dyspnea) and have not received prednisone or prednisolone (glucocorticoids) treatment or other sarcoidosis therapy within the last three months.
The purpose of this research study is to evaluate the long-term safety and tolerability of the study drug called nintedanib in subjects with Systemic Sclerosis and associated Interstitial Lung Disease. Patients who have completed (did not prematurely discontinue trial medication) SENSCISTM (1199.214) can participate in this study. Unlike 1199.214, patients will will know the dose of the study drug. Treatment duration for each patient will be variable. Treatment will be stopped if a reason for withdrawal is met The patient will be in this study about 3 years and have about 26 visits to the study center. These visits include physical exams, blood and urine samples, urine pregnancy testing, collection of unused study drug, and receiving the study drug supply at the reduced dose.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of open-label exposure of gNO in patients with NTM lung disease. Subjects will receive the study drug by inhaling through a nasal mask. Subjects will be treated for 3 weeks (5 days per week) and followed monthly for 3 months.
This is a research study to find out the safety and efficacy of a drug called BG00011 and to find the best dosage. The study drug will be given by an injection under the skin, also called subcutaneously (SC), once a week during the treatment period. Study treatment will be given to you and you will be trained on how to inject yourself with the study drug/placebo in a prefilled syringe. You can ask for re-training at any time during the study. You will be in the study for up to 65 weeks (including a Screening visit, a Study Treatment Period of 52 weeks, and a Safety Follow-Up visit). This study is a randomized, double blind, placebo controlled study.
This is a research study of different ways to use intravenous fluids (fluids given through a small tube placed in the vein) and vasopressors (medicines used to raise blood pressure) to treat sepsis, which is a serious infection. We are asking you to be in this study because: a) you have been diagnosed with low blood pressure due to an infection and b) your blood pressure has stayed low after your doctors gave you fluids. We do not know which approach is better in this situation: a)starting medicines to raise blood pressure first and then giving more fluids (if needed), or b) giving a larger amount of fluids first and then giving medicines to raise blood pressure if needed. Right now, the choice of approach is left to the doctors. Some doctors use medicines to raise blood pressure followed by extra fluids, and others use extra fluids followed by medicines to raise blood pressure. Some doctors use a combination of the two. This treatment part of the study will last for 24 hours, and then we will follow you until you go back to where you live. We want to find out whether one of these approaches compared to the other can improve a patient's chances of survival.
The purpose of this stuThe purpose of this study is to learn more about the safety and effectiveness of VX-445 used in combination with TEZ and VX-561 in patients with cystic fibrosis. Participation could last for approximately 100 weeks. This will include a treatment period that will last approximately 96 weeks, and a safety follow-up period that will last approximately 4 weeks after the last dose of Study Drug. Approximately 400 people will participate in this study.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety of the study drug ND-L02-s0201 when administered at two dose levels compared with placebo (A placebo looks like the study drug, but the injection does not contain the active ingredient in ND-L02-s0201) to help with IPF. ND-L02-s0201 is being developed to treat fibrosis (scarring) of the lungs. ND-L02-s0201 is made up of tiny particles of fat that contain modified vitamin A and help carry the drug through the body and to reach special cells in the lung. It is hoped that the study drug will slow the progression of fibrosis in your lungs. You will be involved in the study for up to 40 weeks (about 10 months).
The is a Phase 2, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study that will be
conducted at multiple centers. The study population is comprised of adult subjects with Cystic Fibrosis, and who have been taking tezacaftor/ivacaftor for the treatment of the disease. The planned sample size is approximately 40 subjects. Participation in this study will last up to approximately 10 weeks and include a screening visit and 9 visits to the study center.
The purpose of this research study is to find out if Acthar works well in and is safe when you use it as part of the treatment for your Pulmonary Sarcoidosis. This research study will collect additional data as to the effectiveness and safety of Acthar in treating Pulmonary Sarcoidosis, and will examine how the study drug acts in the body and how well it manages your symptoms. Participation could last for approximately 56 weeks. This will include a Screening Period that will last up to 4 weeks, a double-blind treatment period of about 6 months when neither you nor your study doctor will know if you are taking Acthar or placebo, an open-label treatment period of about 6 months, and a follow-up visit at about 4 weeks after the last dose of the study drug. The study plan includes coming to the study doctor's research center at least 12 times if you participate throughout the whole study duration of 56 weeks or 9 times if you participate only in the double-blind period.
Approximately 100 people will participate in this study.
Physicians currently have difficulty getting a biopsy of lung spots that are far out from the center of the lung. The bronchoscopes that are used to reach these spots currently are sometimes difficult to maneuver and are unable to reach far to these spots because of the large size of the bronchoscope. This study will test a new robotic scope that uses navigation software to find the distant spots in the lung so physicians can get a biopsy.
