    Probiotics and the Early Life effects on intestinal bacteria and inflammation in children with Cystic Fibrosis (PEARL-CF) , protocol number ACTRN12616000797471

    The PEARL-CF STUDY randomised, controlled trial of probiotic supplementation given once daily for one year in children with CF (age 0-6 years). Randomization will occur among CF subjects and performed as block randomization with a 1;1 allocation Stools will be collected and analysed over a two year period. The hypothesis is probiotics restores the abnormal gut microbiota in children with CF, which in turn reduces the risk of developing intestinal inflammation. We also hypothesise that when probiotics are given in early life, the effects of probiotics, even when ceased, are sustained compared to when probiotics are given after the gut microbiota has become establised (-3 year old).

    The use of exenatide, a GLP-1 agonist, in young people with cystic fibrosis related diabetes and impaired glucose tolerance in the management of post prandial glycaemia, gastric emptying and incretins. , protocol number ACTRN12615001029583

    Aim to evaluate the effect of exenatide on postprandial glycaemia in patients with cystic fibrosis related diabetes (CFRD) and impaired glucose tolerance (IGT). CFRD has a detrimental impact on pulmonary function, mortality and prognosis after lung transplant, that is currently treated by intensive insulin regimen, GLP-1 is released in response to food ingestion and is known to stimulate insulin secretion, suppress glucagon secretion and slow gastric emptying. Exenatide is a GLP-1 (glucagon-like peptide1) agonist that can be administered daily without significant risk of hypoglycaemia. It is anticipated that exenatide will normalise postprandial glycaemia. This is a double blinded crossover trail where participants will have 2 study days. On the first day they will receive the intervention or placebo, receiving the opposite on the second day. Once the intervention or placebo has been given, the participant will consume a pancake followed by assessment of glycaemia, incretin response and gastric emptying.

    Excercise alone versus exercise and positive expiratory pressure as a form of airway secretion clearance in adults with mild cystic fibrosis-related respiratory disease - a feasibility study. , protocol number ACTRN12615001361594

    Participants will do four weeks of 'usual' care involving daily breathing exercises (PEP) and walking, running or step ups. After 4 weeks, those who have adhered to these requirements will be randomly allocated to either continue this routine or to stop the PEP and to just continue with the walking, running or step ups for 3 months. Participants will be assessed before and after the four weeks of usual care and at the end of the three month intervention phase.

    A Phase 3, Randomised, Double-Blind Trial of Inhaled Hypertonic Saline v Isotonic Saline on Lung Structure in CF in children 3-6 Years measured by CT. , protocol number ACTRN12615001067561p

    A Phase 3 randomised, double-blind, controlled trial of inhaled 7% hypertonic saline vs 0.9% isotonic saline for 48 weeks on lung structure in patients with cystic fibrosis in parallel with the North American SHIP trial as measured by CT.

    The effect of low glucose load diet on glycaemic control in patients with cystic fibrosis , protocol number ACTRN12616001159448p

    Concentrated carbonohydrate loads are often used in CF to help meet increased energy requirements and could have a role in the poor glycaemic control observed in CF. The aim of this project is therefore to establish the feasibility of implementing a low glycaemic load, high calorie dietary management plan for patients with CF and impaired glycaemic status (IGT). A secondary aim is to assess the effect of a low GL diet on clinical outcomes of glycaemic control, lung function and weight. Patients with IGT at the RPA CF clinic will be eligible to participate in this study. Weight glycaemic control, Lung function, diet history and quality of life will be measured at baseline and also at 3 months, following dietary intervention of a low GL diet.

    Randomised controlled trial to be determine whether once-daily insulin detemir slows decline in weight and lung functions in patients with cystic fibrosis and early insulin deficiency. , protocol number NCT01100892 ACTRN13611000068965

    Cystic fibrosis (CF) is the most common life-threatening genetic condition affecting Australian children. As well as repeated lung infections, children with CF develop insulin deficiency and eventually diabetes. The CF-IDEA trial (Cystic Fibrosis - Insulin Deficiency, Early Action) will determine whether starting insulin treatment before the onset of diabetes (earlier than current practice) will improve the health of children with CF by improving body weight and lung function.

    The Prevalence and Significance of Gastro-oesophageal Reflux in Adults With Cystic Fibrosis Before and After Lung Transplantation, Together With the Effects of Physiotherapy Airway Clearance Techniques on Gastro-oesophageal Function , protocol number NCT00164021 NCT00164021

    A factorial longitudinal study will be undertaken in adults with cystic fibrosis. Results will be compared with age matched healthy controls. It is not deemed appropriate to randomise patients with gastro-oesophageal reflux(GOR) to a treatment versus no treatment group as immediate treatment for GOR once diagnosed is regarded as obligatory. Subjects: 180 adults with CF will be recruited from the Adult Cystic Fibrosis Unit at the Alfred Hospital to participate in the study. The ambulatory studies will be undertaken during baseline state in the outpatient setting. Fifteen age matched control subjects will be recruited from the general population.
