Bardoxolone Methyl in Patients With Connective Tissue Disease-associated Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension - CATALYST
This study assesses the safety and efficacy of bardoxolone methyl relative to placebo in patients with connective tissue disease-associated pulmonary arterial hypertension to determine the recommended dose range and evaluate the change from baseline in 6-minute walk distance (6MWD) following 24 weeks of study participation.
Study of Efficacy and Safety of QAW039 in Patients With Severe Asthma Inadequately Controlled With Standard of Care Asthma Treatment.
This study aims to determine the efficacy and safety of QAW039 (Dose 1 and Dose 2), compared with placebo, when added to GINA steps 4 and 5 standard-of- care (SoC) asthma therapy (GINA 2015) in each of the groups (patients with severe asthma and high eosinophil counts and all patients with severe asthma).
The Efficacy and Safety of Initial Triple Versus Initial Dual Oral Combination Therapy in Patients With Newly Diagnosed Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (TRITON)
The objective of this clinical trial is to compare the efficacy and safety of an initial triple oral treatment regimen (macitentan, tadalafil, selexipag) versus an initial dual oral treatment regimen (macitentan, tadalafil, placebo) in newly diagnosed, treatment-naïve patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension.
Study to Evaluate Efficacy & Safety of Tralokinumab in Subjects With Asthma Inadequately Controlled on Corticosteroids (MESOS)
A Multicentre, Randomized, Double-blind, Parallel Group, Placebo Controlled, 12-Week, Phase 2 Study to Evaluate the Effect of Tralokinumab on Airway Inflammation in Adults with Asthma Inadequately Controlled on Inhaled Corticosteroid.
A Study to Evaluate the Safety, Efficacy and Changes in Induced Sputum and Blood Biomarkers Following Daily Repeat Doses of Inhaled GSK2269557 in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Subjects With Acute Exacerbation
The purpose of this study is to evaluate specific alterations in immune cell mechanisms related to neutrophil function as detected by PI3Kdelta-dependent changes in messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA) extracted from induced sputum in patients experiencing an exacerbation of COPD, with or without treatment with GSK2269557. The efficacy of treatment with GSK2269557 will also be measured using functional respiratory imaging (FRI) and spirometry. This is a randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel-group study.
To evaluate the efficacy of dupilumab (SAR231893 [REGN668]) in patients with persistent asthma.
To evaluate the safety and tolerability of dupilumab. To evaluate the effect of dupilumab in improving patient-reported outcomes including health-related quality of life.
To evaluate dupilumab systemic exposure and incidence of antidrug antibodies.
Comparing the Efficacy of Tiotropium + Olodaterol (5/5 µg) Fixed Dose Combination (FDC) Over Tiotropium 5µg in Reducing Moderate to Severe Exacerbations in Patients With Severe to Very Severe Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
The overall objective is to assess the effect of once daily tiotropium + olodaterol fixed dose combination compared to 5 µg tiotropium (both delivered with the Respimat® inhaler) on moderate to severe COPD exacerbation in patients with severe to very severe COPD
Prospective, single-arm, longitudinal, international, multicentre study in a real-world cohort of adult severe asthma participants being conducted to assess the relationships between asthma biomarkers and asthma-related health-outcomes for a period of 52 weeks.
Probiotics: Prevention of Severe Pneumonia and Endotracheal Colonization Trial (PROSPECT): A Feasibility Clinical Trial (PROSPECT)
Probiotics are commercially available live bacteria thought to have health benefits when ingested. A literature review of probiotic studies in the intensive care unit (ICU) found that in patients who receive probiotics, there is a 25% reduction in lung infection, known as ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP). There is also an 18% reduction in the chance of developing any infection in the ICU. However, the studies reviewed were small and not well done. Therefore, whether probiotics are really helpful or not is unclear.
The disease being studied is asthma. The main objective of this study is to assess the feasibility of the recruitment goals and also the logistical issues related to use of tele-health technology in developing electronic asthma action plan (eAAP) and communicate with asthma patients in a time period of 24 months. The goals are: 1) enable asthma patients to self-manage their asthma symptoms. The secondary, 2) help care providers to intervene appropriately based on the patient's health status.
