  • Imaging of Pathologic Fibrosis Using 68Ga-FAP-2286

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This is a single arm prospective pilot trial that evaluates the ability of a novel imaging agent (68Ga-FAP-2286) to identify pathologic fibrosis in the setting of hepatic, cardiac and pulmonary fibrosis. FAP-2286 is a peptide that potently and selectively binds to Fibroblast Activation Protein (FAP). FAP is a transmembrane protein expressed on fibroblasts and has been shown to have higher expression in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), cirrhosis, and cardiac fibrosis.

  • Support Groups for Patients With Non-Cystic Fibrosis Bronchiectasis

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    BronchConnect is a prospective trial to investigate the impact of support groups on health care related quality of life in those with noncystic fibrosis bronchiectasis (NCFBE). It has been well demonstrated that participation in patient support groups improves quality of life in those who suffer from interstitial lung disease and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, but the impact is largely unknown for those who live with NCFBE, a chronic lung disease with rising prevalence with no targeted FDA-approved therapy. NCFBE causes chronic cough, dyspnea, recurrent infections, and leads to anxiety and uncertainty. This study seeks to evaluate the impact of a virtual patient support group for patients with NCFBE through questionnaires to assess change of quality of life and anxiety, and exacerbation rates through clinical assessment.

  • NEPH-ROSIS (NEPHrology in CirRhOSIS) Pilot Trial: A Trial to Treat Acute Kidney Injury Among Hospitalized Cirrhosis Patients

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    The goal of this pilot, randomized, single-blind clinical trial is to estimate the effect size of a high and low mean arterial pressure (MAP)-target algorithm among cirrhosis patients hospitalized with acute kidney injury. The main aims to answer are: • Does an algorithm that has low (<80 mmHg) and high (≥80) MAP-targets lead to significant differences in mean arterial pressure? • Are there any serious adverse events (e.g., ischemia) in a high blood pressure algorithm as compared to a low blood pressure algorithm? • Are there any differences in the incidence of AKI reversal in the high v. low MAP-target groups? Participants will be: 1) Randomized to a clinical algorithm that will either target a low (<80 mmHg) or high (≥80 mmHg) MAP. 2) Depending on their group, investigators will titrate commonly used medications to a specific MAP target. Researchers will compare the high and low MAP-target groups to see if these algorithms lead to significant changes in MAP, if they have any impact on AKI reversal, and if there are any adverse events in the high MAP-target group.

  • Check the Safety of Fazirsiran and Learn if Fazirsiran Can Help People With Liver Disease and Scarring (Fibrosis) Due to an Abnormal Version of Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Protein

    open to eligible people ages 18-75

    The main aim of this study is to learn if fazirsiran reduces liver scarring (fibrosis) compared to placebo. Other aims are to learn if fazirsiran slows down the disease worsening in the liver, to get information on how fazirsiran affects the body (called pharmacodynamics), to learn if fazirsiran reduces other liver injury (inflammation) and the abnormal Z-AAT protein in the liver, to get information on how the body processes fazirsiran (called pharmacokinetics), to test how well fazirsiran works compared with a placebo in improving measures of liver scarring including imaging and liver biomarkers (substances in the blood that the body normally makes and help show if liver function is improving, staying the same, or getting worse) as well as to check for side effects in participants treated with fazirsiran compared with those who received placebo. Participants will either receive fazirsiran or placebo. Liver biopsies, a way of collecting a small tissue sample from the liver, will be taken twice during this study.

  • CF And Effects of Drugs Mixed Ex Vivo With Sputum for Mucolytic Treatment

    open to eligible people ages 18-65

    The investigators will collect samples of sputum from healthy volunteers and patients with cystic fibrosis for the purpose of: a) purifying airway mucins for plate-based binding studies and; b) assessment of the effects of carbohydrates on the rheologic properties of the sputum. This study has two hypotheses: 1. Lectins from Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Aspergillus fumigatus bind to airway mucins in a fucose-dependent manner, and this binding can be inhibited by fucosyl glycomimetic compounds. 2. Fucosyl glycomimetics will compete with Pseudomonas aeruginosa lectin (PA-IIL) and Aspergillus fumigatus lectin (AFL) and disrupt lectin-driven mucin cross-linking in CF sputum.

  • Liver Cirrhosis Network Cohort Study

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    Liver Cirrhosis Network (LCN) Cohort Study is an observational study designed to identify risk factors and develop prediction models for risk of decompensation in adults with liver cirrhosis. LCN Cohort Study involves multiple institutions and an anticipated 1200 participants. Enrolled participants will have study visits every 6 months (180 days), with opportunities to complete specific visit components via telehealth or remotely. Visits will include collection of questionnaire data and the in-person visits will include questionnaires, physical exams, imaging, and sample collection.

  • Simvastatin on Hepatic Decompensation and Death in Subjects Presenting With High-Risk Compensated Cirrhosis

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This phase III, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multi-center study seeks to test whether simvastatin, a statin usually used to lower cholesterol to prevent heart problems and strokes, can lower the risk of hepatic decompensation (developing symptoms of cirrhosis) in U.S. Veterans who have compensated cirrhosis (the liver is scarred and damaged but there are no symptoms). The study will also explore how changes or differences in genes effect the safety and effectiveness of using statins and how the use of statins affects quality of life.

  • FibroScan™ in Pediatric Cholestatic Liver Disease (FORCE)

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    Noninvasive monitoring of liver fibrosis is an unmet need within the clinical management of pediatric chronic liver disease. While liver biopsy is often used in the initial diagnostic evaluation, subsequent biopsies are rarely performed because of inherent invasiveness and risks. This study will evaluate the role of non-invasive FibroScan™ technology to detect and quantify liver fibrosis.
