Trials Tracker

Due to COVID-19 some cystic fibrosis (CF) clinical trials may be suspended with new trials postponed. Please see the relevant advice on the COVID-19 Q&A page. The Trials Tracker brings together all CF trials currently recruiting in the UK, so you can find clinical trials you can take part in both in your region and further afield. We are constantly updating and developing the functionality of the Trials Tracker – please help us by completing the online poll or contact us at clinicaltrials@cysticfibrosis.org.uk.

A study of MRI and lung function tests to improve understanding of cystic fibrosis lung disease

This study will assess two emerging lung function tests. The main test uses lung MRI after inhaling a hyperpolarized gas (HP MRI), which images gas distribution within the lung. This test has been demonstrated in CF patients to show lung disease before other conventional test. So far this technique has been limited to small cohorts and therefore needs to be measured in larger cohorts. The second test is a breathing test entitled multiple breath washout (MBW). This test is similar to HP MRI and is also able to detect lung disease prior to conventional tests. It also measures gas distribution within the lung, but without the regional detail of the MRI. The greater detail from the MR images will therefore be able to inform more about tests such as MBW. These tests will also be used to assess CF lungs after performing heavy exercise. Patients with CF become breathless when they exercise, however exercise is important as it improves their fitness and may help to remove mucus from the lung. Using MRI and MBW we will assess the effect of exercise on gas distribution within the CF lung. Children and adults with CF and a range of lung disease severity will be assessed. Patients will attend at three time points over two years and will perform MRI and MBW alongside standard breathing tests and a short quality of life questionnaire. At one visit patients will perform an exercise test followed by repeat MRI and MBW tests.

High Flow Nasal Therapy during exercise in CF

High flow nasal therapy (HFNT) is a way to deliver a mixture of air and oxygen at higher flows compared to standard oxygen therapy. It has been shown to improve oxygenation, reduce breathlessness and breathing rate, and is quite comfortable. Recently HFNT has been shown to improve exercise capacity and tolerance in patients with other lung diseases. HFNT is routinely used in clinical practice in patients with CF who present acutely unwell during hospital admissions. We believe that HFNT could be used by patients with CF during exercise in order to improve their tolerance, lengthen their exercise sessions, and allow them to be less symptomatic. We propose an initial, small-scale pilot study to assess the feasibility of a larger trial to assess efficacy. The study aims to enrol 20 patients with severe lung disease, during a hospital admission. On top of their routine 6-minute walking test, patients will be asked to have a repeated test on HFNT and to fill in a questionnaire on their physical activity. As exploratory outcomes, we will measure distance walked during the tests, oxygen and carbon dioxide levels, breathing rate, and time to recover to baseline. Patients will be asked to rate their comfort and their breathlessness.

AZTEC-CF

This study aims to investigate whether it is safe and effective to use one inhaled antibiotic and one via a drip, instead of the current standard of practice of two antibiotics via a drip. Participants will receive the two different treatments the next two occasions they need to be admitted to Liverpool Heart & Chest Hospital with a chest infection. On one admission they will receive two IV antibiotics, on the other admission they will receive one IV antibiotic and inhaled aztreonam (known as Cayston®). The order they receive each treatment will be picked at random. Participants will have measurements taken including lung function tests, blood tests, CF quality of life questionnaires, and sputum samples will be sent to the University of Liverpool for advanced analysis of the effect each treatment has on bugs in the lung. It is hoped that this study may help provide more information toward a much needed expansion of therapeutic options available in CF.

How PWCF interpret and respond to the PAM-13

This study focuses on the usage of the PAM-13 which is being used as one of the secondary outcome measures to evaluate the intervention we developed. While we would expect that people with higher patient activation scores or levels would have higher levels of adherence no such pattern could be discerned from an initial analysis of the pilot trial baseline data (WP 3.1, Arden et al., unpublished). This has led to the question of how patients with Cystic Fibrosis in the UK interpret and respond to the PAM-13. Given the limited existing evidence of the effectiveness of the PAM-13 in UK patients, especially those with multiple co-morbidities, it is for the ACtiF programme, as well as the usage of the PAM-13 across the UK in a range of contexts that we understand how people are interpreting and responding to the items of the PAM-13. This study therefore aims to use a 'think-aloud' methodology to investigate how people with CF, and with other co-morbidities, understand and answer the PAM-13.

A Study looking at the long-term use of a CFTR modulator combination therapy (VX-445)

This study will evaluate the long-term safety and tolerability of VX-445 in triple combination withT ezacaftor (TEZ) and Ivacaftor (IVA) in subjects with cystic fibrosis who are homozygous or heterozygous for the F508del mutation..
