Database of Interstitial Lung Diseases
Recruitment status was Active, not recruiting
The cause of most interstitial lung diseases (ILDs) is still unknown. Further research, for example to determine predisposing genetic factors, is therefore needed. A database with relevant clinical data and DNA/serum samples of ILD patients could facilitate future research on the cause of ILDs.
Interstitial Lung Diseases
|Official Title:||Registration of Clinical Data and DNA/Serum of Patients With Interstitial Lung Diseases (ILD)|
|Study Start Date:||January 2006|
Protocol title: 'Registration of clinical data and DNA of patients with Interstitial Lung Disease (ILD)' Rationale: The etiopathogenesis of most Interstitial Lung Diseases (ILDs) is still unknown. Further research, e.g. to determine predisposing genetic factors, is therefore needed. A database with relevant clinical data and DNA/serum samples of ILD patients could facilitate future research on the etiopathogenesis of ILDs.
Objective: Availability of relevant clinical data and DNA/serum samples of ILD patients in a database. Those data can be used for future research.
Study design: A prospective observational study
Study population: Patients diagnosed with ILD attending the pulmonology department in participating hospitals.
Intervention: a blood sample is taken from each patient. Furthermore, additional information is collected from the medical file.
Main study parameters/endpoints: DNA and serum sample, demographic variables, medical information, occupational history and hobbies.
Nature and extent of the burden and risks associated with participation, group relatedness: two tubes of blood will be drawn from the patients. The risks of drawing blood from a vein are minimal.
