The study population will consist of one group of smokers who are interested in switching to e-cig use (G...

Visualising c-MET and Activated Neutrophils in Lung Cancer

Lung cancer is currently a major health problem in the UK. Despite being one of the most common cancers, lung cancer has a poor prognosis compared to other types of cancer and is the leading cause of cancer death in the world. As opposed to other organs, the lung is highly susceptible to inflammatory insults, for example from bacterial infection-induced and tobacco-induced inflammation. It has long been known that the cellular microenvironment that nurtures tumour growth and de...

Feasibility of Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy in Lung Cancer

Lung cancer is commonly characterised either with a surgical procedure or by taking a tissue sample with a needle. Unfortunately, these invasive approaches may be unsafe in many patients with lung cancer, who often have co-existing illnesses such as emphysema. Magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) is a type of scan which offers the possibility of assessing tumour function by measuring concentrations of chemicals (metabolites) within the abnormal tissue. It is a well-establis...

Sleep and Immune Checkpoint Inhibitors

Sleep disturbances are prevalent in cancer patients and linked to levels of fatigue and depressive symptoms with a major impact on quality of life. A growing body of evidence links sleep disturbances with various health outcomes, including increased risk of depression, cancer, and overall mortality. Inflammation is suggested to be an underlying mechanism both driving and maintaining the symptom cluster of sleep disturbance, fatigue and depressive symptoms, as well as being bi-d...

Registry for Patients With X-linked Hypophosphatemia

This is an international, multicentre, prospective, non-interventional, observational registry of patients with X-linked hypophosphatemia (XLH).

Effect of Alcohol and Drugs of Abuse on Immune Function in Critically Ill Patients With Respiratory Failure

This study plans to learn more about people who are sick in the hospital with a lung infection, or respiratory failure. Respiratory failure, or severe lung failure, is a life-threatening disease. When it happens, the lungs have trouble carrying out their normal function of getting oxygen into the blood, and removing carbon dioxide from the body. Investigators are conducting this study to see what drinking too much alcohol, using tobacco products, or using drugs (both legal an...

Effectiveness and Cost Impact of a Telecommunications System in COPD

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is one of the most common chronic illnesses among veterans in the adult population, and accounts for substantial morbidity and mortality in this population. Interventions that enhance symptom self-monitoring and increase understanding of COPD therapy may lead to earlier detection of clinical deterioration permitting more timely intervention by health care providers. However, such interventions are labor-intensive and expensive, and...

Clinical Evaluation of Patients With X-linked Retinitis Pigmentosa (XLRP)

The purpose of this study is to evaluate subjects with X-linked retinitis pigmentosa caused by RPGR-ORF15 mutations in a clinical setting to fully characterize their condition, measure testing variability, and estimate rates of progression of clinical parameters.

Antibiotic Treatment of Gulf War Veterans' Illnesses

In 1990 and 1991, the U.S. deployed approximately 700,000 troops to the Persian Gulf to liberate Kuwait from Iraqi occupation. While there were few casualties associated with the Gulf War, many individuals returned from this conflict with unexplained symptoms and illnesses. This constellation of symptoms has been termed Gulf War Veterans' Illnesses (GWI). Although several explanations have been offered as to the cause of GWI, none of the putative etiologic agents or conditions ...

Multi-component Intervention for Diabetes in Adults With Serious Mental Illness

Persons with schizophrenia and other serious mental illnesses have a high risk for type 2 diabetes and an increased risk of premature mortality compared to the general population. The goals of the proposed study are to implement a multimodal lifestyle intervention to reduce that risk in these individuals living in residential care facilities, a common housing modality for people with serious mental illnesses. If successful, this intervention will lead to reduction in excess med...

Epidemiological Study to Assess the Prevalence of Lung Cancer

Lung cancer is the main cause of mortality by cancer in France. The lung cancer stage at time of diagnosis is a major determinant of survival. To date, 75% of lung cancer are diagnosed at an advanced stage with worse survival). Lung cancer screening is based on low dose CT scan which allows to decrease lung cancer related mortality of 20% in patients aged 55-74 years-old with a history of tobacco consumption ≥ 30 PY active of who quite < 15 years. These criteria for eligibili...

MRI and Lung Function Measures of Benralizumab Response in Asthma

New treatments have been developed for asthma that are good at preventing asthma attacks and improving day-to-day symptoms. Alongside the development of these new drugs, there are new ways of measuring how the lung is affected by asthma. In particular, investigators have developed ways of seeing how air moves in the lungs of people with asthma, using MRI scanning. This study aims to see how quickly these new drugs result in changes in the way the lung is working, as seen in the...

Impact of Genetic Counseling for Individuals With Mental Illness

People who have experienced mental illnesses like schizophrenia, bipolar disorder or schizoaffective disorder often have a poor understanding of the causes of their illness, and that they are often very worried about how the illness affects their families. In particular, affected individuals worry that there is a high chance that any children that they have will become affected with the same illness. Often, because of this fear, affected individuals choose not to have children....

Effects of Inpatient Pulmonary Rehabilitation on Frailty in Patients After Lung-Transplantation

Frailty is closely linked to the success of lung transplantations (LTx) (1,2). Studies have shown that frailty causes a diminished physical performance in candidates for LTx and an increased 30 day rate of re-hospitalization after surgery. Furthermore, frailty is associated with a higher one-year-mortality rate after LTx in frail compared to non-frail patients (1,3,4). Some evidence that frailty in LTx-candidates can be decreased by a suitable rehabilitation program sugg...

Side Effects of Anti-PD-(L)-1 and Anti CTLA-A4 in the Non Small Cells Lung Cancer

The immune-related adverse events (irAEs) linked to the important activation of the immune system by new immunotherapy treatments in patients affected by Non-small-cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC) have not received a lot of systematic study or been monitored over time outside of clinical trials.
