The Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) is developing a COVID-19 biorepository which will contain blood, urine, and other bodily fluids along with relevant medical information from individuals evaluated, exposed to, or treated for COVID-19. To learn from this pandemic ,and to develop treatments and strategies to better prepare and avert future pandemics we must study the disease and its effects. The clinical specimens in the biorepository will be available for investigators to use for future research. Compensation is provided for participation in this project for eligible participants.
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.
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 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.
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 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).
This study is being done to evaluate an experimental treatment for people with Cystic Fibrosis who have a bacterial infection in their lungs. Subjects will be randomized (selected by chance) to either be treated with an investigational inhaled gaseous drug (in 99.5% nitrogen) that is mixed with room air or breathe 100% nitrogen that is mixed with room air. If you are randomized to the investigational treatment, we are asking you to breathe in a gas called "nitric oxide". Participation in the study will take about 43 days
