There is one clinical trial.
This study is investigating the role of allergic (Th2) inflammation in patients with Cystic Fibrosis (CF) and history of fungal infection and/or Allergic Bronchopulmonary Aspergillosis. Little is known about fungal infection in CF and conflicting results exist on whether this results in worse lung function over time. There is concern that persistent fungal infection can result in worse clinical outcome measures in patients with CF. Also, it is unclear how ABPA develops, but may be related to the amount of fungus a patient with CF is infected with. This study looks at inflammatory patterns and allergic responses to fungal elements to help identify biomarkers and signs of allergic disease in fungally infected patients with CF.
Description: Difference in sputum Th2 biomarkers (ECP, IL4, IL5, IL10, IL13, and eosinophil count) in patients with CF with fungal infection with expected elevation of sputum Th2 biomarkers in patients with CF and ABPA compared to those without fungal infection and without ABPA.Measure: Difference in Th2 Sputum Markers Time: Average of 24 months
Description: Serum Th2 biomarkers in patients with fungal infection and ABPA (Table 3). Serum Th1 biomarkers in patients with fungal infection and ABPA (Table 3). Serum sensitization markers to fungal allergens in patients with fungal infection and ABPA (Table 4). Baseline and historic lung function, historical comorbid diagnoses and BMI measurements in patients with fungal infection and ABPA. Environmental factors that are possibly related to fungal infection and ABPA in patients with CF. Immune profile: A profile of each group will be based upon their findings of each set of biomarkers: Th1, Th2, mold allergy panel, and systemic markers of inflammation. Based upon findings in each of these categories (elevated, depressed), we will be able to formulate a profile based upon the type of marker/inflammatory pathway.Measure: Other markers of fungal inflammation and allergic reaction in patients with CF Time: Average of 24 months
Description: Banking of both sputum and serum to potentially utilize microbiome and transcriptome techniques for further immunotyping and infection characterization.Measure: Biobanking of specimens Time: Average of 24 months

An HTML report was created for each of the unique drugs, MeSH, and HPO terms associated with COVID-19 clinical trials. Each report contains a list of either the drug, the MeSH terms, or the HPO terms. All of the terms in a category are displayed on the left-hand side of the report to enable easy navigation, and the reports contain a list of correlated drugs, MeSH, and HPO terms. Further, all reports contain the details of the clinical trials in which the term is referenced. Every clinical trial report shows the mapped HPO and MeSH terms, which are also hyperlinked. Related HPO terms, with their associated genes, protein mutations, and SNPs are also referenced in the report.Drug Reports MeSH Reports HPO Reports
