Background and study aims: Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is an inherited disease affecting 10000 people in the UK with an average age at death of 28 years in 2012. The lungs of people with CF (PWCF) are prone to infections. Daily physiotherapy and inhaled medications are needed to stay healthy. Around £30 million is spent annually on inhaled therapy but average adherence has been shown to be only 36%. Data suggest that adherence is better in younger children but of the most of the PWCF are now adults. PWCF who collect less than 50% of their medication cost the healthcare system significantly more than PWCF who collect more than 80% and most of the additional cost results from unscheduled emergency care and hospital admission. This unscheduled emergency care is distressing for PWCF and their families. Current research investigating whether adult PWCF can build successful, self-management, treatment habits using dose-counting nebulisers to...

Brief Summary CF is a complex, inherited illness that can affect many organs of the body. The investigators have found that some patients with CF have reported more problems with memory than would be expected at their age and that patients appear to be using memory strategies to overcome memory loss. The investigators intend to objectively test memory and examine MRI images of the brain of patients with CF. Detailed Description Patients with CF have several potential risk factors which may predispose them to memory problems. Because the CF population has historically only been young, this is not something that has been focused on. No research has currently identified whether patients with CF have a much earlier risk of developing cognitive impairment or how CF impacts on the brain. There has not previously been work in this area of CF and the investigators are in a unique position with the...

Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is a rare, life-threatening, genetic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system, significantly impairing the quality of life, with those affected having a median age of death at 40. The main objective of this study is to assess how safe and effective is the combination therapy of galicaftor/navocaftor/ABBV-119 in adult participants with CF.   Galicaftor/navocaftor/ABBV-119 combination therapy is being developed as an investigational drug for the treatment of CF. Study doctors place participants in 1 of the 4 groups, called treatment arms. Each group receives a different treatment. Around 90 adult participants with a diagnosis of CF will be enrolled in the study around approximately 35 sites worldwide. Participants in arm 1 will receive oral capsules of galicaftor/navocaftor dual combination for 28 days followed by galicaftor/navocaftor/ABBV-119 triple combination for 28 days. Participants in arms 2 and 3 will receive the galicaftor/navocaftor/ABBV-119 triple combination or placebo for...

Brief Summary: Patients with bronchiectasis (BE) suffer from a persistent cough, daily sputum expectoration, recurrent chest infections, and a poor health-related quality of life. Current guidelines for the management of BE highlight the lack of evidence to recommend mucoactive agents, such as hypertonic saline (HTS) and carbocisteine, to aid sputum-removal as part of standard care. The investigators hypothesise that mucoactive agents (HTS or cabocisteine, or a combination of both) are effective in reducing exacerbations over a 52-week period, compared to usual care. Detailed Description: Mucus hypersecretion is a clinical feature of BE. This mucus-retention aids bacterial infection that can lead to pulmonary exacerbations, which further develops the "viscous cycle" of mucus-retention, infection, inflammation and tissue damage. Mucoactive drugs target this cycle by potentially increasing the ability to expectorate sputum and/or decrease mucus hypersecretion. The current guidelines indicate that mucoactives in combination with airway clearance may be considered to enhance sputum...

Brief Summary: 160 subjects with autoimmune pulmonary alveolar proteinosis (aPAP) will be randomized to receive once daily treatment with inhaled molgramostim or placebo for 48 weeks. Subjects completing the 48 week placebo-controlled period will receive open-label treatment with once daily inhaled molgramostim for 48 weeks. Detailed Description: This is an interventional, randomized, double-blind, 2-arm, parallel groups, placebo-controlled, multi-center, phase 3 trial in adult subjects who are diagnosed with aPAP. An aPAP diagnosis should be confirmed by an anti-GM-CSF auto-antibody test result, and history of PAP based on either high resolution computed tomography, lung biopsy, or bronchoalveolar lavage cytology, should be available. The trial consists of a 6-week screening period, a 48-week randomized, double-blind treatment period, a 48-week open-label treatment period, and a conditional 4-week safety follow-up period. The maximum treatment duration will be 97 weeks and the maximum trial duration will be 108 weeks. During the trial, whole lung lavage...

Brief Summary: The primary objective of the study is to evaluate the efficacy of dupilumab on the annualized rate of exacerbations in participants with Allergic Bronchopulmonary Aspergillosis (ABPA). The secondary objectives of the study are: To evaluate the effects of dupilumab on lung function in participants with ABPA To evaluate the effects of dupilumab on ABPA-related exacerbations To evaluate the effects of dupilumab on hospitalization/emergency department (ED)/urgent care visits in participants with ABPA To evaluate the effects of dupilumab on asthma control in participants with ABPA To evaluate the effects of dupilumab on health-related quality of life (HRQoL) in participants with ABPA To evaluate the effects of dupilumab on serum total immunoglobulin E (IgE) and Aspergillus-specific IgE concentrations To evaluate the effects of dupilumab on Fractional exhaled Nitric Oxide (FeNO) levels To evaluate safety and tolerability of dupilumab in participants with ABPA To evaluate dupilumab concentrations in serum and the...

Brief Summary Monitoring patients with chronic, inflammatory airways disease particularly in the early stages is hampered by the relative insensitivity of current outcome measures to detect subtle changes. Multiple breath washout is a potential sensitive test that is a useful readout of disease at these early stages but it lacks standardisation and knowledge of variability with reference to standard lung function measures. This is a Cross sectional and longitudinal observation study. The hypothesis is that multiple breath washout-derived indices will provide a robust signal of gas mixing inhomogeneity, correlating with conventional measures of airway disease severity. Multiple breath washout performed on different devices will generate indices which correlate but differ in value. Detailed Description Lung Clearance Index (LCI) has been shown to be more sensitive and perhaps more applicable in early stages of lung disease when compared to currently utilised physiological outcome measures, and yet it is not approved by...

Brief Summary The objective of the trial is to assess efficacy and safety of add-on aerosolized liposomal cyclosporine A (L-CsA) to Standard of Care (SoC) therapy as compared to SoC therapy alone in the treatment of Bronchiolitis obliterans syndrome (BOS) in double lung transplant recipients. Detailed Description This is a Phase III randomized, controlled clinical trial of L-CsA for the treatment of bronchiolitis obliterans syndrome in adults diagnosed with BOS following double lung transplant. Patients will receive either L-CsA (10 mg) via the PARI Investigational eFlow® Device twice daily plus Standard of Care (SoC) treatment, or SoC alone, for a period of 48 weeks. All patients will be eligible to continue in an open-label extension trial of L-CsA following completion of BOSTON-2. Regardless of treatment allocation, all patients will continue to receive their SoC regimen for maintenance of the lung allograft. Eligible patients for the clinical trial must have a...

We hope to use new gene and protein technologies currently only available in Universities, to measure combinations of the most promising molecules and microbes(biomarkers) from sputum, blood, saliva, urine, pleural fluid and any biopsy samples from people attending hospital with lung diseases and compare them with samples from people with other lung diseases and healthy controls. Testing on samples which are more easily and safely obtained than deep biopsies and then applying newer cutting edge technologies we hope we can better detect and monitor lung cancer and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). We will also apply special ways of measuring and combinations of biomarkers rather than a single reading. The work applies high-throughput, automated so rapid and potentially more accurate and cost-effective detection “omics” technologies.
