Trials Tracker

Due to COVID-19 some cystic fibrosis (CF) clinical trials may be still be temporarily paused, however some trials will begin to re-open soon. If you have any questions about taking part in clinical trials, please speak to our CF team or contact the Trust’s clinical trial team. Please also see the relevant advice on the COVID-19 Q&A page. The Trials Tracker brings together all CF trials currently recruiting in the UK, so you can find clinical trials you can take part in both in your region and further afield

High Flow Nasal Therapy during exercise in CF

High flow nasal therapy (HFNT) is a way to deliver a mixture of air and oxygen at higher flows compared to standard oxygen therapy. It has been shown to improve oxygenation, reduce breathlessness and breathing rate, and is quite comfortable. Recently HFNT has been shown to improve exercise capacity and tolerance in patients with other lung diseases. HFNT is routinely used in clinical practice in patients with CF who present acutely unwell during hospital admissions. We believe that HFNT could be used by patients with CF during exercise in order to improve their tolerance, lengthen their exercise sessions, and allow them to be less symptomatic. We propose an initial, small-scale pilot study to assess the feasibility of a larger trial to assess efficacy. The study aims to enrol 20 patients with severe lung disease, during a hospital admission. On top of their routine 6-minute walking test, patients will be asked to have a repeated test on HFNT and to fill in a questionnaire on their physical activity. As exploratory outcomes, we will measure distance walked during the tests, oxygen and carbon dioxide levels, breathing rate, and time to recover to baseline. Patients will be asked to rate their comfort and their breathlessness.

AZTEC-CF

This study aims to investigate whether it is safe and effective to use one inhaled antibiotic and one via a drip, instead of the current standard of practice of two antibiotics via a drip. Participants will receive the two different treatments the next two occasions they need to be admitted to Liverpool Heart & Chest Hospital with a chest infection. On one admission they will receive two IV antibiotics, on the other admission they will receive one IV antibiotic and inhaled aztreonam (known as Cayston®). The order they receive each treatment will be picked at random. Participants will have measurements taken including lung function tests, blood tests, CF quality of life questionnaires, and sputum samples will be sent to the University of Liverpool for advanced analysis of the effect each treatment has on bugs in the lung. It is hoped that this study may help provide more information toward a much needed expansion of therapeutic options available in CF.

How PWCF interpret and respond to the PAM-13

This study focuses on the usage of the PAM-13 which is being used as one of the secondary outcome measures to evaluate the intervention we developed. While we would expect that people with higher patient activation scores or levels would have higher levels of adherence no such pattern could be discerned from an initial analysis of the pilot trial baseline data (WP 3.1, Arden et al., unpublished). This has led to the question of how patients with Cystic Fibrosis in the UK interpret and respond to the PAM-13. Given the limited existing evidence of the effectiveness of the PAM-13 in UK patients, especially those with multiple co-morbidities, it is for the ACtiF programme, as well as the usage of the PAM-13 across the UK in a range of contexts that we understand how people are interpreting and responding to the items of the PAM-13. This study therefore aims to use a 'think-aloud' methodology to investigate how people with CF, and with other co-morbidities, understand and answer the PAM-13.

A Phase 3, Open-label Study Evaluating the Long-term Safety and Efficacy of VX-445 Combination Therapy in Subjects With Cystic Fibrosis Who Are Homozygous or Heterozygous for the F508del Mutation

This study will evaluate the long-term safety and tolerability of VX-445 in triple combination (TC) with tezacaftor (TEZ) and ivacaftor (IVA) in subjects with cystic fibrosis (CF) who are homozygous or heterozygous for the F508del mutation

    Restore CFTR Function

Study Designed to Assess PTI-808 in Adults With Cystic Fibrosis

In this study, the investigational CFTR modulator medicine PTI-808 will be given in combination with one or two other investigational modulator medicines, PTI-801 and PTI-428. PTI-428, PTI-801, and PTI-808 are considered cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) modulators being developed to treat the underlying cause of cystic fibrosis. PTI-428 is a CFTR amplifier that increases the amount of CFTR protein in the cell, PTI-801 is a CFTR corrector that improves the processing of CFTR protein in the cell, and PTI-808 is a CFTR potentiator to enhance the activity of CFTR at the cell surface. Modulators on their own have been shown to have limited activity, and it is predicted that combining modulators will be necessary to address CFTR defects. There is a screening visit up to 4 weeks before the active portion of the study, which lasts 4 weeks. In the active portion of the study, participants will take one of the following: PTI-808 by mouth in combination with PTI-801 and PTI-428, PTI-808 in combination with PTI-801 and placebo, or all placebos for 4 weeks. The study medication is taken once a day at breakfast. Two weeks after stopping the study medication, another visit will occur.
