The project aims to increase the diagnostic accuracy in occupational asthma (OA), with emphasis on Irritant Induced Asthma (IIA). Currently, most patients are evaluated in occupational medicine by comparing the exposure and symptom characteristics with epidemiological data. Biological markers may be present in AA, but presently not in IIA. The majority of cases evaluated are considered as possible IIA, i.e. low-dose multiple exposures. VOC features will be analyzed with the Bre...
The general objective of this multicenter, international study is to perform a multivariate descriptive analysis of a large population of well-defined subjects with sensitizer-induced OA ascertained by a positive SIC result in order to provide more information on the characteristics of this condition.
Background: Occupational exposures are thought to be responsible for 10-15% of new-onset asthma cases in adults, with disparities across sectors. Because most of the data are derived from registries and cross-sectional studies, little is known about incidence of occupational asthma (OA) during the first years after inception of exposure. This study focuses on this early asthma onset period among young workers in the bakery, pastry making and hairdressing sectors in order to ass...
This is a Phase I, open-label study to examine safety, tolerability and immunogenicity of an investigational Ebola vaccine given by intramuscular (IM) injection to healthy adults. The study is a dose escalation of VRC-EBOADC086-00-VP, a chimpanzee adenovirus serotype 3 vector vaccine, which encodes wild type (WT) glycoprotein (GP) from the Sudan strain of Ebolavirus.
To evaluate airway inflammation in persons with asthma exposed to endotoxin, a common occupational air contaminant. Subjects are subsequently challenged with allergen.
This project will be test the effect of probiotics on occupational allergic sensitization, respiratory symptoms and bronchial hyperresponsiveness in workers or students that develop respiratory symptoms exposed to laboratory animals, i.e., small rodents.
Sevoflurane is a widely used volatile agent for induction and maintenance of anaesthesia. The administration of sevoflurane involves the risk of occupational exposure. Possible negative implications of chronic occupational exposure to sevoflurane are not completely refuted. In Germany no maximum workplace concentration for sevoflurane is defined. This study aims to find out if working conditions of physicians and different anaesthesia techniques effect the extent of occupationa...
Asthma is a chronic disease that affects nearly 13% of adults in the U.S., causing substantial impairment that is reflected in the tens of millions of missed days of work, and doctors' and emergency room visits it leads to annually. Those who have asthma are twice as likely to develop depression and anxiety, which are associated with more frequent and severe asthma symptoms, especially in those under chronic stress. The project proposed here seeks to understand the role of the ...
There are consistent evidences through epidemiologic studies in different places, reinforced by occupational asthma records studies, that cleaning workers have a high risk in developing asthma. These risk determinants are not totally known. The air around the worker may have some higher and lower molecular weight with different concentration peaks from removed dust of the cleaning process and volatile substances from cleaning products. Cleaning activities may occur in different...
Management of animal induced occupational asthma is mainly avoidance, but this is not feasible for many occupations. Treatment with avoidance and conventional treatment is also not always successful. Omalizumab is FDA approved for the treatment of allergic asthma and may be effective at reducing symptoms and disease progression in the animal handlers population.
This study aims to provide scientific evidence of the efficacy and safety of this agent as 'add-on' therapy for adult patients whose asthma remains uncontrolled on standard medication. The aims are to assess the efficacy, safety and tolerability of AKL 1 companred to placebo in the treatment of asthma.
Some patients with mild asthma may develop severe asthma. It is not known what makes patients with mild asthma become severe, and we plan to find out why this happens. Patients with severe asthma may have a different type of inflammation in the airway tubes. Patients with severe asthma do not get as much benefit from taking steroid inhalers or tablets compared to asthma patients with mild disease. The study hypothesis is that the inflammation in severe asthma is such that it m...
The newly introduced antimalarial drug artemether-lumefantrine is currently recommended as second line antimalarial in Sudan. Recurrent infection after treatment with this drug has been associated with selection of certain genes in the malaria parasite. However there is no information on this association in Sudan.This study is going to look into the genetics of resistance to artemether-lumefantrine.
In asthma, the type and importance of the inflammatory response in the airways has allows identification of different phenotypes. Of these, one of the most common is eosinophilic asthma, based on induced sputum differential cell count. Patients with severe asthma and an eosinophilic asthma phenotype have different pathophysiological characteristics than those seen in patients with with mild asthma. However, few studies have compared patients with eosinophilic phenotype accordin...
To examine the occupations, industries and exposures in the work-place which were associated with a high risk for asthma and other adverse respiratory health effects, with particular emphasis on specific exposures of predominantly female occupations (irritants, detergents and other asthmagens), and of other high risk major occupations which had not been adequately examined.
To assess the separate and interactive effects of asthma severity, subspecialty practice variation, asthma-related psychosocial variables, and other factors on asthma outcomes, including asthma-specific quality of life and activity limitations, health care utilization for asthma, and direct and indirect costs of asthma.
This is an open label, randomized non comparative phase II clinical trial conducted on parallel groups, to assess the safety and efficacy of the combination of Paromomycin (20 mg/kg/d) IM for 14 days and Miltefosine (allometric dosing) oral for 42 days, and a combination of AmBisome® (20 mg/kg total dose) IV over 7 days and Miltefosine oral for 28 days (allometric dosing) for the treatment of PKDL patients in Sudan.
In asthmatics with airway hyperresponsiveness and a "T2 immune signature" (type 2), Dupilumab will suppress airway hyperresponsiveness (assessed by methacholine PC20 ≤ 4 mg/mL (PC20: provocative concentration causing a 20% fall in FEV1) OR ≥15% decreased in forced expired volume in 1 second (FEV1) during saline inhalation for sputum induction OR ≥25% improvement in FEV1 after bronchodilator) and airway eosinophilia (assessed by sputum eosinophils) and this will be associa...
This study will evaluate the use of the personal computer (PC) in occupational therapy. The results of the study will help occupational therapists develop improved treatment activities using PCs. Patients enrolled in various NIH clinical trials who are referred for occupational therapy may be eligible for this study. Each patient will have at least four computer sessions within 6 months. They will use the PC to achieve goals they set for themselves-for example, to build ...
The purpose of this study is to investigate the pharmacodynamics of single doses of abediterol given by 2 different devices in participants with asthma. Abediterol (AZD0548) is a potential for once daily treatment of asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) in fixed dose combination (FDC) with an inhaled corticosteroid (ICS) or a novel anti-inflammatory agent. The aim of the clinical studies is to enable further investigations in participants with asthma and COPD...
Current asthma medicines include inhalers. A common inhaler used in asthma is called a beta-agonist (for example salbutamol). They improve asthma symptoms by stimulating areas in the human airway resulting in widening of the human airway. Although these drugs are useful after the first dose, longterm use can cause worsening asthma symptoms. Beta-blockers are the complete opposite type of medication. Just now they are avoided in patients with asthma as after the first dose th...
Previous work has determined that there are significant differences in the communities of bacteria found in the airways of asthmatic patients compared to those found in the airways of healthy people. It is not yet clear if these bacterial communities are similar in all patients with asthma or if they are different in people with more severe asthma, with different types of asthma or between asthma patients taking different treatment. This is important to know as any diffe...
It is important for people with asthma to become involved in their asthma care and management. This study will evaluate an interactive Web site that provides tailored feedback and information to asthma patients and encourages them to ask their doctor specific questions about their asthma care.
Families of children with asthma are admitted for asthma attacks very frequently compared to adults with asthma. They are given education about asthma but studies are needed to improve this education so that it makes a meaningful difference in their child's health outcomes.
The purpose of this study is to determine if teaching children with asthma how to talk to their doctor about controlling their asthma including symptom frequency in an asthma diary and medication use techniques, will result in less symptom and missed school days, fewer emergency room visits and reduce the cost of asthma health care.
