In CF, pulmonary exacerbations (PEx) can lead to permanent loss in lung function and thus should be prevented. Previously, we identified a blood protein biosignature consisting of 6 proteins capable of predicting short-term PEx events in CF adults. In this study, we utilized blood samples from the placebo arm of a randomized controlled trial to assess whether this candidate protein biosignature was also capable of predicting short-term PEx events in CF children and adolescents. This pilot study provides preliminary evidence that blood inflammation can be monitored to predict short-term PEx risk in CF children and adolescents.

Azithromycin reduces pulmonary exacerbation (PEx) risk in cystic fibrosis (CF) but not all individuals benefit. The goal of this study was to discover blood protein biomarkers predictive of clinical r...
Several risk stratification tools are available to predict short-term mortality in patients with acute pulmonary embolism (PE). The presence of right ventricular (RV) dysfunction is an independent pr...
Sulfur mustard (SM) as a chemical warfare agent has short- and long-term complications on its victims. Complications of exposure to SM depend on the level of contamination. Long-term pulmonary complic...
The purpose of this study was to examine short-term longitudinal relationships between handgrip strength (HGS) and cardiovascular disease (CVD) biomarkers in middle-aged to older adults living in rura...
Patients with pulmonary embolism (PE) have increased mortality in short-term, however long-term prognosis is not well-defined. In this long-term cohort study, we aimed to determine if PE was associate...
Clinical and translational research in cystic fibrosis (CF) is hampered by a lack of biomarkers that can be used to identify promising new therapies. There is an urgent need for developmen...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether the investigators can predict which patients are at risk of a re-exacerbation of COPD within 30 and 90 days using changes in lung capacity...
This will be a prospective study examining serum levels of MMP-13 and alpha-1 antitrypsin as well as other biomarkers as well as urine biomarkers of smoking status and collagen degradation...
The purpose of the study is to evaluate whether insulin treatment during pulmonary exacerbation (PE) in patients with Cystic Fibrosis (CF)and normoglycemia improves their short term outcom...
Exacerbations of the disease are a hallmark of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), affecting the decline of pulmonary function, quality of life and increasing morbidity. The use ...
Analysis of the level of specific BIOMARKERS in a pregnant woman's sera to identify those at risk for PREGNANCY COMPLICATIONS or BIRTH DEFECTS.
The short wide vessel arising from the conus arteriosus of the right ventricle and conveying unaerated blood to the lungs.
The amount of a gas taken up, by the pulmonary capillary blood from the alveolar gas, per minute per unit of average pressure of the gradient of the gas across the BLOOD-AIR BARRIER.
Narrowing below the PULMONARY VALVE or well below it in the infundibuluar chamber where the pulmonary artery originates, usually caused by a defective VENTRICULAR SEPTUM or presence of fibrous tissues. It is characterized by restricted blood outflow from the RIGHT VENTRICLE into the PULMONARY ARTERY, exertional fatigue, DYSPNEA, and chest discomfort.
A factor associated with the well-being of living organisms that is used as a measure of environmental change and or influence. For example, aldehyde dehydrogenase expression in earthworm tissue is used as an indication of heavy metal pollution in soils. Distinguish from BIOMARKERS.
