The purpose of the study is to identify the patients at high risk of developing Acute Lung Injury (ALI) at the time of hospital admission, and before intensive care unit admission.

Aim 1- To validate the prediction model (Lung Injury Prediction Score) in a population based sample of hospitalized patients.

Aim 2- To determine the significance of health-care related ALI risk modifiers in a population based sample.

Aim 3- To compare the short and long term outcomes between patients at high risk who do, and do not develop ALI.

Further study details as provided by Ognjen Gajic, Mayo Clinic:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Development of ALI [ Time Frame: During the hospital stay (before discharge and maximum of 30 days) ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Quality adjusted survival [ Time Frame: 6 months ]

Biospecimen Retention:   Samples With DNA
We will collect time sensitive peripheral blood samples for collaborative genome-wide association, gene expression, cytokines and proteonomic studies. Blood samples of the enrolled patients will be collected as baseline, after 24, 48 hours and at the time of development of ARDS.

Estimated Enrollment: 6600
Study Start Date: December 2008
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2017
Estimated Primary Completion Date: December 2017 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
At risk for Acute Lung Injury

Controls-High risk patients at risk of Acute Lung Injury(ALI) but do not develop ALI

Cases-High risk patients that do develop Acute Lung Injury

Detailed Description:

Acute lung injury (ALI) is an example of a critical care syndrome with limited treatment options once the condition is fully established.Not surprisingly, many treatments targeting the mechanisms identified in preclinical studies have failed to improve patient outcomes.The most likely reason could be due to inadequate and delayed recognition of patients at risk and the subsequent development of the full blown syndrome.ALI/ARDS usually develops during the first hours of ICU admission, and often is the very reason for ICU admission.

Clinical prediction models have been extensively used in the clinical practice to identify patients at high risks who may benefit from specific interventions. However, no such tool exists to predict the development of ALI in patients at risk. We have recently developed an ALI prediction model (Lung Injury Prediction Score:LIPS)which incorporates demographic, environmental and clinical characteristics at the time of, and before, hospital admission. If validated, this model will serve to find the population of patients at high risk of ALI in whom future prevention trials will be conducted. By determining not only patients at high risk but also the attributable burden of ALI/ARDS in contemporary cohorts of patients at risk, our findings will facilitate the prioritization of preventive strategies and future clinical trials.
