This study aims to determine whether or not early spirometric detection and management of obstructive lung disease with combined fluticasone/azithromycin/montelukast therapy (FAM) can atte...
Bronchiolitis obliterans syndrome (BOS), an obstructive airway disease as a result of chronic rejection, is one of the major causes of morbidity and mortality in long-term survivors of all...
The main objective of the APW-RSV II clinical trial is to evaluate if the addition of azithromycin to routine bronchiolitis care, among infants hospitalized with RSV bronchiolitis, reduces...
Investigation of photopheresis as new therapy regimen in patients with bronchiolitis obliterans syndrome after lung transplantation in a controlled, randomized study
This study is to determine whether sleep disorders contribute to impaired quality of life and mobility in patients with Bronchiolitis Obliterans syndrome and whether non invasive positive...
Lung transplantation is a therapeutic option for select patients with end-stage lung disease. However, successful lung transplantation is hampered by chronic lung allograft dysfunction (CLAD), in part...
Bronchiolitis obliterans (BO) syndrome is a leading cause of chronic graft-versus-host disease (cGvHD) and is associated with mortality after allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (alloHC...
Bronchiolitis obliterans syndrome (BOS) remains the major problem which precludes long-term survival after lung transplantation. Previously, an open label pilot study from our group demonstrated a pos...
Immunosuppressive therapy fails to suppress the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines, particularly by CD8+T cells, in stable lung transplant recipients and those undergoing chronic rejection, sugg...
Inflammation of the BRONCHIOLES leading to an obstructive lung disease. Bronchioles are characterized by fibrous granulation tissue with bronchial exudates in the lumens. Clinical features include a nonproductive cough and DYSPNEA.
A non-atherosclerotic, inflammatory thrombotic disease that commonly involves small and medium-sized arteries or veins in the extremities. It is characterized by occlusive THROMBOSIS and FIBROSIS in the vascular wall leading to digital and limb ISCHEMIA and ulcerations. Thromboangiitis obliterans is highly associated with tobacco smoking.
A semi-synthetic macrolide antibiotic structurally related to ERYTHROMYCIN. It has been used in the treatment of Mycobacterium avium intracellulare infections, toxoplasmosis, and cryptosporidiosis.
