    Vaccine compared to quadrivalent (ACYW135) meningococcal conjuate vaccine in reducing respiratory exacerbations in children aged greater then or equal to 18 months with suppurative lung disease. , protocol number ACTRN12612000034831

    Chronic suppurative lung diseases in children are major causes of morbidity and mortality worldwide, particularly in disadvantaged populations. Repeated infections in childhood contribute to poor lung health in adulthood. The most common organism associated with infection is non-typeable Haemophilus influenzae (NTHi). This study aims to determine whether a vaccine against NTHi (10v-PHiD) can reduce repeated respiratory infections in children. We will be comparing the number of respiratory exacerbation's in the 12 months following vaccinated children with chronic lung disease vaccinated with 10vPHiD and children who received a meningococcal vaccine (control vaccine).

    Continuous infusion antipseudomonal betalactams versus standard short infusions in the treatment of acute infective exacerbations in patients with cystic fibrosis - impact on clinical and microbiological outcomes. , protocol number NCT01667094 ACTRN12612000945820

    Cystic fibrosis (CF) is an inherited disorder which results in increased thickness of secretions, especially in the lungs. By adulthood, the majority of patients with CF will have bacteria living in their lungs, called Pseudomonas which can cause lung infections. This usually results in worsening respiratory symptoms and often an acute deterioration in their lung function. They are usually treated with antibiotics that target the Pseudomonas aeruginosa. These antibiotics are typically given as short intravenous infusions several times a day. This study aims to compare the standard method of giving these antibiotics with a different strategy of giving these antibiotics to see if this can improve the outcomes of treatment of these infections and reduce the amount of Pseudomonas aeruginosa in the lungs of these patients. This strategy consists of giving the same antibiotics continuously, to ensure there is always enough antibiotic in the bloodstream and the lung to be able to kill the bacteria.

    A double blind, placebo-controlled, randomised study of inhaled mannitol during acute pulmonary exacerbation in children with cystic fibrosis - a pilot study. , protocol number ACTRN12612001167853

    To see if the addition of dry powder mannitol as an extra therapy during hospitalisation for an acute pulmonary exacerbation in young people with Cystic Fibrosis improves outcomes from that admission. Our hypothesis is that will improve not only clinical status at the time of discharge but also measures of lung function.

    Physiotherapy Services for Cystic Fibrosis (CF) Patients Receiving Home Intravenous Antibiotics: Australian Practice , protocol number ACTRN12612001295831

    A email questionnaire will be distributed to the principal physiotherapist working in the Cystic Fibrosis service at each site contributing to the Australian Cystic Fibrosis Data Registry in 2010. The questionnaire investigates the current level of physiotherapy provided to patients with cystic fibrosis receiving home intravenous antibiotics. It covers location and type of service provided, frequency and what the current model of care is based on.

    A randomised controlled trial of effects of early life exposure to general anaesthesia on neurobehavioural outcomes in children with cystic fibrosis (CF) , protocol number ACTRN12613000057785

    The use of general anaesthesia (GA) in infants and young children has generally been considered safe. Recent research from laboratory animal studies has raised concerns that exposure to anaesthetic medicines in early life could potentially be related to impaired memory, learning and behaviour. This study takes advantage of the previous randomisation in the ACFBAL study (ACTRN 12605000665639)

    An observational study investigating the interactions between lung disease, nocturnal sleep disordered breathing and daytime function assessed by overnight polysomnography, 24 cough recordings and Sonomet measurements in addition to investing if the sleep disordered breathing abnormalities and predicators of a pulmonary exacerbation in adults with cystic fibrosis. , protocol number ACTRN12613000292774

    To determine the interactions between lung disease, nocturnal sleep disordered breathing and daytime functioning in patients with cystic fibrosis. Overnight polysomnography will be compared with cough recordings and Sonomat recordings to evaluate sleep disruptions including cough, grunting, snores, shallow breathing and respiratory related arousals in cystic fibrosis patients. In addition, the study will evaluate if the sleep abnormalities, measured non-invasively, can predict the onset of a pulmonary exacerbation in a cystic fibrosis patient.

    Does the bubble-positive expiratory pressure (PEP) device improve secretion clearance compared to the active cycle of breathing technique (ACBT) or no intervention (control) in people with non-cystic fibrosis bronchiectasis? , protocol number ACTRN12614001233617

    The primary aid of this study is to determine the effectiveness of the bubble-PEP device compared to the active cycle of breathing technique (ACBT) or no intervention in clearing secretions in people with non-CF bronchiectasis. The hypothesis is that the bubblePEP is not inferior to the ACBT and is superior to no intervention in clearing secretions. Secondary aims will be to evaluate the acceptability and perceived benefits of the bubblePEP device by participants.

    In adults with cystic fibrosis, what is the effect of a smartphone application used to report symptoms versus usual care on exacerbations requiring intravenous antibiotics, healthcare utilisation, lung function, quality of life, anxiety and depression, nutritional status, medication adherence and absenteeism and presenteeism. , protocol number ACTRN12615000599572

    Cystic fibrosis (CF) is the most common Caucasian genetic disease and has a reduced life expectancy of approximately 40 years of age. The decline in lung function in CF is accelerated by exacerbations. Severe exacerbations require treatment with intravenous antibiotics (IVABs), but of concern many do not regain the lung function they have lost following treatment. One of the major factors in this failure to regain lung function is the delay in time it takes for the individual with CF to present to the CF centre to report symptoms and commence treatment.
