An Exploratory, Observational, Non-interventional, Open Label, Remote Pilot Study to Assess Adherence in COPD Subjects

2018-11-22 20:35:16 | BioPortfolio


The purpose of this study is to monitor adherence to a clothing-attached breathing monitor, respiratory patterns, and activity levels in COPD patients, and correlate those respiratory patterns and activity levels with patient-reported symptoms and events. To achieve this purpose, Spire will collect data from a wearable monitor that participants attach to the participant's clothing, an associated smartphone application, and completion of weekly questions. The wearable monitor and the consumer smartphone application to be used are consumer products and currently available in the market.

This study does not include clinical intervention and no doctors will be involved in this study.

No clinical tests or office visits are included in this study. All data will be collected through an online survey tool and remotely through the wearable sensors.


This is an exploratory, observational, non interventional, single-arm, open label, remote pilot study involving up to 150 self-reported COPD participants. Eligible participants will wear the Spire biophysiological health monitors for a period of 9 months while the participants report symptoms on a weekly basis via brief surveys. If and when participants incur a COPD-related exacerbation that results in hospitalization, participants will report this on the weekly surveys. When this survey is read by a study nurse, the nurse will follow up with the participant by phone to conduct a post-exacerbation phone screening. This data would provide context to inform how to correlate the biosensor-sensed physiological parameters with the exacerbation self-reported data. All study participants will be remotely distributed throughout the United States.

An alternative to REFRACTIVE SURGICAL PROCEDURES. A therapeutic procedure for correcting REFRACTIVE ERRORS. It involves wearing CONTACT LENSES designed to force corrective changes to the curvature of the CORNEA that remain after the lenses are removed. The effect is temporary but is maintained by wearing the therapeutic lenses daily, usually during sleep.

The pathologic wearing away of the tooth substance by brushing, bruxism, clenching, and other mechanical causes. It is differentiated from TOOTH ATTRITION in that this type of wearing away is the result of tooth-to-tooth contact, as in mastication, occurring only on the occlusal, incisal, and proximal surfaces. It differs also from TOOTH EROSION, the progressive loss of the hard substance of a tooth by chemical processes not involving bacterial action. (From Jablonski, Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992, p2)

The wearing away of a tooth as a result of tooth-to-tooth contact, as in mastication, occurring only on the occlusal, incisal, and proximal surfaces. It is chiefly associated with aging. It is differentiated from TOOTH ABRASION (the pathologic wearing away of the tooth substance by friction, as brushing, bruxism, clenching, and other mechanical causes) and from TOOTH EROSION (the loss of substance caused by chemical action without bacterial action). (Jablonski, Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992, p86)
