Impulse Oscillometry for Prognostication in Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis

2019-04-05 09:58:39 | BioPortfolio

Summary

A 5-point decline of forced vital capacity expressed as % predicted, over 6 months, is the current definition of disease progression (fast decline in lung function) in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. There is a need for techniques allowing to characterize disease progression earlier, so that treatment may be adapted as early as possible in the lack of a response.

Hypothesis. Our hypothesis is that 3-month changes of lung function parameters measured by a novel technique, impulse oscillometry, predicts 6-month changes in forced vital capacity in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis.

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 process in which normal lung tissues are progressively replaced by FIBROBLASTS and COLLAGEN causing an irreversible loss of the ability to transfer oxygen into the bloodstream via PULMONARY ALVEOLI. Patients show progressive DYSPNEA finally resulting in death.

Familial or idiopathic hypertension in the PULMONARY CIRCULATION which is not secondary to other disease.
