Motivational Interviewing and Air Cleaners for Smokers With COPD (MOVE COPD)

COPD is characterized by lung injury and inflammation caused by noxious particles and gases, including those emanating from cigarette smoke and air pollution. Despite the clear detrimental impact of poor air quality on respiratory outcomes, regardless of smoking status, to investigators' knowledge, there are no studied environmental interventions targeting indoor air quality to improve respiratory health of smokers, thus ignoring a potential target for harm reduction. Investiga...

Air Pollution and COPD Exacerbation

There is an excess of hospitalization rates for acute exacerbation of COPD in Picardy compared to the national data. A first study realized in Picardy has shown a link between air quality and COPD. Nevertheless, the particles type is unknown and according to it, impact on COPD could be different. The investigator goal is to find a correlation between acute exacerbation of COPD consultation rate and daily ultra thin particles in Haut de France. The investigators will correlate t...

Improving Cardiovascular Health in Patients With Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Researchers have found a link between chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and heart disease; however, a link is all they have found. Cardiovascular health in COPD is controlled by different mechanisms including vascular health and systemic inflammation. The investigators have collected preliminary data to support that concentrations of Sirtuin 1 (Sirt1), a protein that plays a key role in cardioprotection, may be involved in cardiovascular health in patients with COPD....

Structured Discharge and Follow-up Protocol for COPD Patients Receiving LTOT and NIV

Readmission to hospital is one of the most important problems in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patients who developed chronic respiratory failure. Patients receiving long-term oxygen therapy (LTOT) and noninvasive ventilation (NIV) constitute the most vulnerable group because of the need for comprehensive care. However, because of lack of health care support systems in Turkey, many advanced COPD patients are hospitalized due to preventable problems such as insuff...

Nurse Tele-Consultations With Discharged COPD Patients Reduce the Numbers of Readmissions

Patients with COPD are often admitted to the hospital with an exacerbation. It is the most common cause for admissions to medical wards. The patients are often readmitted. This is har great impact on health economy and is a significant factor to medical beds. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of telemedicine consultations between respiratory nurses at the hospital and COPD patients in their homes after a discharge from the hospital, which was caused by an exa...

COPD Patient-Powered Research Network

The COPD Patient-Powered Research Network (COPD PPRN) is a patient research registry with the goal of enrolling 75,000 or more COPD patients and those at risk who are willing to share their heath information over several years and participate in research. The COPD PPRN has built an online platform to allow volunteers to enroll electronically, complete surveys, be contacted about studies they qualify for and become connected to COPD resources. The goal of the registry is to spee...

Factors That Affect the Development of COPD Symptoms

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is the fourth most common cause of death in the United States. There is no cure and the disease gets worse over time. Although it usually occurs in people who smoke cigarettes, researchers do not know exactly how smoking leads to COPD. This study will compare blood and tissue samples from smokers and nonsmokers with and without COPD to determine why some COPD symptoms occur in some people and not others.

Mepolizumab for COPD Hospital Eosinophilic Admissions Pragmatic Trial

This will be a single-centre, double-blinded, randomised, placebo controlled trial comparing mepolizumab 100mg versus placebo in patients with eosinophilic COPD, started during their index admission to hospital.

The Association Between Blood Eosinophilsp in Thai COPD Patients: A Prospective Study

The association of blood eosinophil as a biomarker for eosinophilic Thai COPD patients, such as COPD exacerbation, hospital admission, lung functions and mortlity.

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 to Obtain Normal Values of Inflammatory Variables From Healthy Subjects

Smoking induces an inflammatory reaction in the airways which can ultimately result in persistent damage and the development of a Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). However, not all subjects who smoke end up with COPD. After long-term smoking, approximately 20% of subjects develop COPD. At this time, it is unclear why some subjects develop COPD, whereas others maintain a normal lung function. In addition, smoking has important consequences in asthma. Patients with a...

Role of A Disintegrin and Metalloproteinase (ADAM) in Epithelial Dysfunction

Despite emerging implications for ADAMs (and matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs)) in disease progression, the mechanisms that lead to activation of specific ADAMs (and MMPs) and their actions in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are still incompletely understood. In the current study, the researchers aim to investigate the effects of cigarette smoke on cellular parameters that are relevant for development of COPD and the involvement of ADAM activity in these effects. By...

Evaluation of Reactive Oxygen Metabolites in the Value of COPD

This study through the long-term observation followed up for 2 years to find the change of the COPD patients blood ROMs, systematically evaluate the relationship between ROMs and the severity of COPD. Evaluate the differences of prognosis between the different oxidative stress level (according to the level of ROMs are divided into higher and normal phenotype). Explore the new oxidative stress evaluation index ROMs application value in COPD.

Retrospective Chart Review of Candida Fungemia

Background: Candida can cause infections. The most common kind of Candida at clinics is C albicans. But other kinds have increased at clinics too. Researchers want to review the records of people who were in previous NIH studies who had Candida. They want to find out what risk factors are associaated with this infection. Objective: To study the factors that are associated with Candida fungemia to develop. The factors are clinical features, diagnoses, and previous...

Study on COPD Corticosteroid-induced Hyperglycemia on Clinical Outcome in Patients With COPD

Hyperglycemia is a common complication of corticosteroid (cortisone) therapy. It is estimated that more than a third of patients with chronic pulmonary disease (COPD) exacerbation (16). Despite its frequency, the impact of corticosteroid-induced diabetes on clinical outcome and mortality is not known. A computerized search of biomedical journal literature from MEDLINE, PubMed, and Ovid from 1966 to 2006 provided very little information on the prevalence and outcome of corticost...

Impact of Pharmacist in Cardiology Service on Diabetic Patient's Care Management

The coverage of the diabetes is a multidisciplinary care, with practitioners' implication(hospital and liberal), and other medical and paramedical profession: doctor, pharmacist, male nurse, nutritionist, etc. In fact there is a real importance of link between hospital and general medecine outside. That's why the pharmacist's presence during the hospitalization seems to be a good alternative to make the link between hospital and the outside pharmacist where patient take his tre...

NRD to Predict COPD Exacerbations at Home

COPD is a common, serious disease and is a major burden on patients and the National Health Service. Patients with COPD can develop worsening of their symptoms, known as an exacerbation, which can be severe enough to warrant hospital admission. There are currently no objective measurements available to patients and clinicians to predict exacerbation and monitor recovery. Detection of exacerbation by both patients and physicians is known to correlate poorly with onset of respira...

Physical Activity in COPD Acute Exacerbation Patients

Patients who are suffering from COPD had a decreased level of physical activity which is consequentially related to another acute exacerbation event. In this study, we selected patients from those who were admitted for acute exacerbation of COPD, evaluated physical activity by accelerometer (wearable multisensory armband devices) to find out the correlation between physical activity in COPD acute exacerbation patients.

COPD Exacerbations

Detecting exacerbations to prevent a severe and / or to early treat an exacerbation is crucial in patients with COPD in order to prevent hospitalization. Patients with invasive mechanical ventilation outside the hospital have a high re-hospitalization rate which is associated with severe economic burden since those patients need to be treated mainly on an ICU or a respiratory ward being able to take care of invasive mechanical ventilation. Recently, it has been shown that dail...
