Clinical Course of Interstitial Lung Diseases: European IPF Registry and Biobank

2016-11-02 07:53:22 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Born out of the European Union 7th Framework Programme funded project European IPF Network (eurIPFnet), the European IPF Registry (eurIPFreg) has become Europe's leading database of longitudinal data from IPF patients, including control groups of patients with other lung diseases. The registry was initiated with the intention of creating a permanent and continuously growing record of well defined data on IPF in Europe, in order to increase the chances of finding better treatment options for this devastating disease.

Clinical colleagues who would like to actively participate (both in terms of patient recruitment and data analysis) are invited to contact us (http://www.pulmonary-fibrosis.net/).

Description

The group's work aims to foster research on Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF), the most aggressive form of an Idiopathic Interstitial Pneumonia (IIP). Within the eurIPFreg we, the eurIPFreg steering committee and a growing number of external site investigators, aim to describe the natural course of IPF and other IIPs, to identify risk factors that are associated with the evolution of the disease and to sample biomaterials that may serve as underlying basis for translational research activities.

IPF and non-specific interstitial pneumonia (NSIP), as well as the other entities of IIPs (cryptogenic organizing pneumonia, COP; desquamative interstitial pneumonia, DIP; respiratory bronchiolitis interstitial lung disease, RB-ILD; lymphoid interstitial pneumonia, LIP; acute interstitial pneumonia, AIP) are frequently progressive, fibroproliferative diseases of unknown etiology, affecting the lung parenchyma. Patients with IPF have the most devastating prognosis within the group of IIPs, with a median survival rate of 2-3 years.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A group of interstitial lung diseases with no known etiology. There are several entities with varying patterns of inflammation and fibrosis. They are classified by their distinct clinical-radiological-pathological features and prognosis. They include IDIOPATHIC PULMONARY FIBROSIS; CRYPTOGENIC ORGANIZING PNEUMONIA; and others.

A common interstitial lung disease of unknown etiology, usually occurring between 50-70 years of age. Clinically, it is characterized by an insidious onset of breathlessness with exertion and a nonproductive cough, leading to progressive DYSPNEA. Pathological features show scant interstitial inflammation, patchy collagen fibrosis, prominent fibroblast proliferation foci, and microscopic honeycomb change.

A form of CARDIAC MUSCLE disease in which the ventricular walls are excessively rigid, impeding ventricular filling. It is marked by reduced diastolic volume of either or both ventricles but normal or nearly normal systolic function. It may be idiopathic or associated with other diseases (ENDOMYOCARDIAL FIBROSIS or AMYLOIDOSIS) causing interstitial fibrosis.

A rehabilitation therapy for removal of copious mucus secretion from the lung of patients with diseases such as CHRONIC BRONCHITIS; BRONCHIECTASIS; PULMONARY ABSCESS; or CYSTIC FIBROSIS. The patient's head is placed in a downward incline (so the TRACHEA is inferior to the affected area) for 15- to 20-minute sessions.

A sampling methodology using small sample sizes when conducting surveys in small geographical or population-based areas or lots.
