|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Invasive Pulmonary Aspergillosis||Drug: Amphotericin B Liposomal 50 MG Other: Placebo||Phase 1|
Phase of the clinical trial Phase I trial (pilot study), prospective, randomised, controlled trial using a drug under conditions of use not approved for the form of administration.
It is a Phase I study since the primary objective includes tolerance analysis, safety and pharmacokinetic and distribution studies of nebulized amphotericin, but when administered to patients it also carries out the preliminary assessment of the safety and efficacy of the treatment.
Primary and secondary variables
Reduction of >20% of post-nebulized FVC and FEV1 in relation to values obtained before nebulization.
In each visit made during the nebulized therapy period (week 1 visit in view of week 6) the following parameters will be objectified: before and after nebulization:
- forced vital capacity (FVC)
- forced expiration volume in 1 second (FEV1) Both parameters will be measured with the Micro Spirometer; Micro Medical Ltd; Rochester UK). Repeat 3 times and obtain the higher value
- Related to tolerability and safety
- At systemic level: Fr Resp/min: Breathing rate per minute, Fr Card/min: Heart rate per minute, BP (mmHg): Systolic and diastolic blood pressure, Sat 02 (%): Percentage of oxygen saturation (digital pulse oximetry), blood test disturbances.
- At the pulmonary level: symptomatic cough, bronchospasm (auscultation), dyspnea or shortness of breath, need for bronchodilator treatment.
- Others: bad taste in mouth, nausea, dysphagia Given the practical absence of systemic passage of nebulized Ambisome confirmed in other studies, the practical absence of reported systemic reactions and given the high number of systemic events that these patients develop in relation to their underlying pathology and the use of other systemic treatments, adverse events of an extrapulmonary or systemic nature that are not considered adverse reactions (related to nebulized therapy, the object of the study) will not be collected for the study.
- related to pharmacokinetics
- Concentration of amphotericin in bronchoalveolar lavage
- Plasma amphotericin concentration Related to Effectiveness
- Radiological efficacy (including PET-CT control): Image response and PET-CT performance: Quantification of SUV metabolic uptake index in a combined positron emission tomography (PET-CT).
- Microbiological efficacy in BAL: Microbiological response in bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL): Comparison of results of calcofluor staining, fungal culture, galactomannan, BDGlucan and Aspergillus PCR of BAL samples obtained by fibrobronchoscopy
- Serum microbiological response: Comparison of results for galactomannan and BDGlucan in serum during the weeks of study follow-up

|Ages Eligible for Study:||18 Years and older (Adult, Older Adult)|
|Sexes Eligible for Study:||All|
|Accepts Healthy Volunteers:||No|
- Those over 18 years of age, signed by the IC or its representative, with a compatible respiratory clinic and meeting the following criteria will be included in the study: aspergillosis confirmed in sterile sample culture (e.g. lung biopsy) or with histological evidence of invasion, regardless of the patient's condition (proven aspergillosis).
In the absence of proven aspergillosis, patients who meet all 3 conditions below are considered likely and also eligible for inclusion:
- Clinical criteria: neutropenia (<500 neutrophils /ul), haematological malignancy, haematopoietic parent transplantation, solid organ transplantation, prolonged use of steroids, solid tumour, HIV infection, systemic diseases requiring immunosuppressive therapy, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, cirrhosis, malnutrition, post-operative cardiac surgery or respiratory distress secondary to influenza;
- Radiological criteria (TAC): infiltrates with halo effect, aerial meniscus, nodular, cavitated, ground glass, tree in bud or in general the presence of abnormal or persistent images refractory to antibiotherapy;
- Microbiological criterion: isolation of Aspergillus spp in respiratory samples (whether or not associated with hyphae vision in staining techniques) or the positivity of galactomannan in serum (>0.5 x2 or >0.8 x1) or galactomannan in BAL (>1.0);
- Inability or refusal of the patient (or his/her legal representative) to grant the IC.
- Pregnancy or planning to become pregnant during the course of the study. Breastfeeding.
- Formal contraindication for the administration of nebulized drugs, hypersensitivity to amphotericin.
- Patients admitted to the ICU and patients who at the time of randomization are intubated or require imminent intubation cannot be included because some studies have confirmed that nebulized Ambisome can precipitate in the breathing tubes.
- Participation in another clinical trial in the previous month or life expectancy < 1 week.
