  Purpose

The overall purpose of this project is to develop and validate a simple, non-invasive method to detect aspiration of gastro-intestinal fluid into the respiratory tract. The investigators will compare the quantity of cromolyn detected in urine collected overnight after 4 ingestions (at 2h intervals) of a 200 mL of a 1mg/mL solution of cromolyn sodium, by 5 healthy control subjects and 10 patients (3-6 with pulmonary fibrosis; and 3-6 either awaiting or recently undergone lung transplantation) with clinical and laboratory evidence of GER (gastroesophageal reflux) with microaspiration.
