Summary

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.

A Phase 1 Study to Evaluate the Safety, Tolerability, and Pharmacokinetics of PTI-808 in Healthy Adult Subjects and in Adults with Cystic Fibrosis Save

Keywords

Summary

In this study, PTI-808 will be given alone and in combination with two other experimental drugs, PTI-801 and PTI-428. PTI-428, PTI-801, and PTI-808 are considered cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) modulators being developed to treat the underlying mechanism of cystic fibrosis. PTI-428 is a CFTR amplifier that increases the amount of CFTR protein in the cell, PTI-801 is a CFTR corrector that improves the processing of CFTR protein in the cell, and PTI-808 is a CFTR potentiator to enhance the activity of CFTR at the cell surface. Individual modulators have been shown to have limited activity, and therefore it is predicted that a combination of modulators will be required to fully address the CFTR protein defects. The study will also obtain information on how the study drug moves into, through, and out of the body. The expected duration of this study is up to 57 days

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

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 3,500 subjects have been enrolled and have provided clinical information and a blood sample.
