Two Different Dosages of Nebulized Steroid Versus Parenteral Steroid in the Management of COPD Exacerbations

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a common disease that has a chronic and progressive course. Patients with COPD may have exacerbations one to four times in a year. Numbers of exacerbations are important because of increased morbidity and mortality and healthcare costs. Systemic corticosteroids (SC) are recommended in the management of exacerbations of COPD as well as bronchodilator, oxygen and antibacterial treatment by all international guidelines. Howeve...


The Role of Physical Activity for Acute Exacerbations of COPD

The investigators plan to study the association between physical activity, malnutrition and sarcopenia and the occurrence of acute exacerbations of COPD / the evolution of the COPD assessment test (CAT) over 1 year in a telehealthcare cohort of patients with COPD. The investigators hypothesize that malnutrition and/or sarcopenia at baseline and a decline in the fat-free mass index over time is associated with an increased rate of acute exacerbations of COPD and an increased CAT...

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Patients Diagnosed With Gastro Esophageal Reflux Disease (GERD). Rates of COPD Exacerbations After Treatment With High Dose Proton Pump Inhibitor Therapy

The purpose of this study is to determine which COPD patients have GERD and if COPD patients with GERD treated with high dose lansoprazole for 1 year decreases the frequency of COPD exacerbations compared to the previous year without treatment.


The Role of Nebulized Budesonide in the Treatment of Acute Exacerbations of COPD

This study was designed to evaluate the hypothesis that nebulized budesonide) might be an alternative to systemic corticosteroids (SC) in the treatment of patients with acute exacerbations of COPD (AECOPD).

Bronchial Infection in Patients With COPD and Frequent Exacerbations.

Hypothesis: 1. Innate immunity is altered in certain patients with COPD and frequent exacerbations, a fact that makes them more susceptible to being infected by bacteria. 2. The electronic nose is able to detect patterns of specific VOCs for exacerbations of infectious origin.

Effect of Tiotropium on Inflammation and Exacerbations in COPD

Patients with COPD experience exacerbations that are a major cause of morbidity. Exacerbations are associated with increased airway and systemic inflammation and those experiencing frequent exacerbations demonstrate increased inflammation in the stable state. Tiotropium has been shown to reduce exacerbation frequency and it might be postulated that this is due to a reduction in inflammation. The study will compare airway inflammation and exacerbation frequency in patients with ...

Nasal High-Flow in COPD

Rationale: Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a disease with high morbidity and mortality worldwide. COPD exacerbations are the important contributor to disease deterioration and decrease in health-related quality of life (HRQoL). Since therapeutic options to treat exacerbations effectively are limited, many patients have persistent loss of vital functioning and suffer from frequent re-hospitalisations. Nasal high flow therapy (nHFT) is an innovative therapy that ...

Immunization To Prevent Acute COPD Exacerbations

Prospective multicenter observational study, to evaluate the impact of routine clinical practice vaccination with PCV13 on the reduction of the risk of moderate/severe COPD exacerbations

Respiratory Microbiome in COPD and Associated Inmune Response.

Hypothesis: COPD patients with frequent exacerbations have different pulmonary and systemic immune response than COPD patients without frequent exacerbations and this is related to their microbiome.

Advair® DISKUS® (Fluticasone Propionate/Salmeterol) Versus Serevent® DISKUS® (Salmeterol) For The Treatment Of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease Exacerbations

This study evaluates the effect of two medicines on COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) exacerbations. This study will last up to 56 weeks, and subjects will visit the clinic 10 times. Subjects will be given breathing tests and will record their breathing symptoms daily on diary cards. All study related medicines and medical examinations will be provided at no cost. The two drugs used in this study have been approved by the FDA for use in patients with COPD.

Study of the Involvement of IL-17 / IL-22 Pathway in Bacterial Exacerbations of COPD

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a worldwide chronic inflammatory disease of the airways linked to environmental exposure. The chronic course of COPD is often interrupted by acute exacerbations which have a major impact on the morbidity and mortality of COPD patients. A bacterial etiology for these exacerbations is common (almost 50%). Moreover, airway bacterial colonization linked to an increased susceptibility is observed in COPD patients. Effective Th17 immune...

Understanding Patient Management of COPD Exacerbations

This observational study will examine the care-seeking behaviors of Veterans with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) to see whether patients' perceived need for care or lack of access to care leads to delays in getting care for COPD exacerbations. Participants will complete a baseline in-person visit and receive calls every two weeks for one year to monitor for COPD exacerbations. Detailed information about each exacerbation and time to care will be obtained. A sample...

Platelet Activation and Reactivity in Acute Exacerbations of COPD

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is known for development of severe cardiovascular co-morbidities. Systemic inflammation during acute exacerbations of COPD (AE-COPD) is thought to play a role in development of cardiovascular disease. Platelets contribute to acute cardiovascular events and atherosclerosis. When platelets are activated, they form complexes with monocytes. These platelet-monocyte complexes (PMCs) are an early process in atherothrombosis and promote inf...

Feasibility and Safety of Immunoglobulin (Ig) Treatment in COPD Outpatients With Frequent Exacerbations: Pilot Study 1

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a progressive inflammatory disease of the airways, associated with poor health status, functional disability, significant morbidity, and increased risk of death. In Ontario, COPD is the leading cause of hospital admission and readmission, and costs the health system approximately 3 billion dollars annually. Individuals with COPD experience increased 'flare-up's' (acute exacerbations) as their disease worsens, characterized by peri...

Interpretation of Health News Items Reporting Results of Randomized Controlled Trials With or Without Spin by English-speaking Patients

The main objective of this study is to compare the interpretation of health news items reporting results of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) with or without spin (i.e., distortion of research results). The news items which reported those studies evaluating the treatment effect, having highest number of spin in the headline and text and received high online public attention will be selected. Spin will be deleted and will rewrite the news items without spin. This sample of new...

Acupuncture Treatment of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Exacerbation

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a major health problem. Acute exacerbations are a health-care burden involving frequent hospitalizations and elevated costs. They have effective therapies with significant side effects. Acupuncture has been shown to reduce dyspnea and other COPD-related symptoms. The investigators will compare the efficacy and safety of the addition of true acupuncture to usual care with both sham-acupressure added to usual care and usual care onl...

A Phase 2 Study of MP-376 to Prevent Acute Exacerbations in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Patients

Patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) suffer from frequent and recurrent acute exacerbations (AECB) which are associated with enormous healthcare expenditures and significant morbidity, specifically an increased risk of death, a decline in pulmonary function and a significant change in quality of life. Bacteria appear to have an important role in acute exacerbations in chronic bronchitis and COPD. Studies of acute exacerbations in COPD have shown a reductio...

Phase II Study of Safety and Feasibility of Intensive Blood Glucose Control With Insulin on Acute Medical Wards

Patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are commonly admitted to hospital with exacerbations of their lung disease. A combination of the acute illness and treatment with oral steroids causes a rise in blood sugar. Patients with high blood sugar do worse than those with normal blood sugar. The aim of this study is to develop a safe and effective protocol for tight control of blood glucose with insulin on acute medical wards outside the intensive care environme...

The Use of a Forecasting System for Predicting Exacerbations of COPD

People with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) often have periods during the year when their symptoms become worse. These are often due to an infection and are called "exacerbations" by doctors. Exacerbations are more common in the winter and also seem to be related to particular types of weather. As well as forecasting the weather the UK Met Office has developed a system to try to predict when exacerbations are likely to occur. The main purpose of this research s...

A Study Designed to Evaluate ODSH in Subjects With Exacerbations of COPD

The purpose of this study is to determine whether ODSH, when added to conventional treatment, is more effective in treating COPD exacerbations than conventional therapy alone.

Domiciliary Monitoring to Predict Exacerbations of COPD

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a common, long term condition of the lungs that is usually caused by cigarette smoking. In addition to daily symptoms and limitation in activities, patients are prone to developing chest infections called 'exacerbations'. Exacerbations are a big problem: unpleasant for patients, and sometimes severe enough to cause hospital admission (and therefore health facilities pressures) and death. Reducing the impact of exacerbations is ver...

Measure of the Long Term Influence of SPIRIVA® in Acute Respiratory Disorders

The objectives of this study were to evaluate the effect of a one-year treatment with inhaled tiotropium bromide 18 mcg once daily on lung function, incidence and severity of exacerbations in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The secondary purpose was to explore possible relationships between lung function changes and occurrence of COPD exacerbations and to try to characterize these exacerbations.
