Microaspiration in Pulmonary Fibrosis (ROMI)
|ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT01150591|
Recruitment Status : Completed
First Posted : June 25, 2010
Last Update Posted : December 2, 2015
Hypothesis 1: Microaspiration, as diagnosed by bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) pepsin, is common in patients with IPF.
Hypothesis 2a: Baseline clinical variables and co-morbid conditions are risk factors for microaspiration in patients with IPF.
Hypothesis 2b: Baseline biological variables reflecting alveolar epithelial injury and inflammation are markers of microaspiration in IPF.
Hypothesis 3a: Microaspiration will lead to a more rapid rate of decline in pulmonary function.
Hypothesis 3b: Microaspiration will lead to higher rates of urgent medical care use (i.e. unscheduled clinic visit, emergency room visit, or hospitalization).
