|Brief Title ICMJE||Early Diagnosis of Aspergillosis in Patients at High Risk of Fungal Infection Caused by Treatment for Hematologic Cancer or Other Disease|
|Official Title ICMJE||Early Diagnosis of Invasive Aspergillosis in a High Risk Group of Patients Using Serum and Bronchoalveolar Lavage Fluid Real Time PCR and Galactomannan ELISA|
RATIONALE: Studying ways to diagnose fungal infections early may help doctors plan the best treatment.
PURPOSE: This clinical trial is studying laboratory tests to see how well they find aspergillosis early in patients at high risk of fungal infection caused by treatment for hematologic cancer or other disease.
OUTLINE: This is a prospective study.
Patients are assessed for early diagnosis of invasive aspergillosis (IA) using serum and bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BALF) evaluated by ELISA for galactomannan (GM) antigen and real time PCR for fungal DNA. Serum samples are collected at baseline and periodically during study, beginning with the onset of neutropenia and continuing until resolution of fever or recovery of neutrophil count. BALF samples are collected in patients with abnormal chest radiology evaluated by bronchoscopy and bronchoalveolar lavage. BALF is analyzed for GM antigen, fungal DNA, inflammatory markers, and cytokines.
Patients are also assessed using exhaled breath condensate (EBC) evaluated by GM ELISA and real time PCR. EBC is collected at baseline and periodically during study to detect GM antigen or fungal DNA and to measure markers of pulmonary inflammation and oxidative stress (e.g., pH, hydrogen peroxide, and leukotriene B4).
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 200 patients will be accrued for this study.
