  • Test Whether Different Doses of BI 1291583 Help People With Bronchiectasis

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This study is open to adults with bronchiectasis. People can join the study if they produce sputum and have a history of flare-ups (also called exacerbations). The purpose of this study is to find out whether a medicine called BI 1291583 helps people with bronchiectasis. Participants are put into 4 groups randomly, which means by chance. Participants in groups 1, 2, and 3 get different doses of BI 1291583. Participants in group 4 get placebo. Placebo tablets look like BI 1291583 tablets, but do not contain any medicine. Participants take the tablets once a day. Participants are in the study for between 6 months and 1 year. During this time, they visit the study site about 10 times and get about 5 phone calls from the site staff. The doctors document when participants experience flare-ups during the study. The time to the first flare-ups is compared between the treatment groups. Doctors also regularly check participants' health and take note of any unwanted effects.

  • Support Groups for Patients With Non-Cystic Fibrosis Bronchiectasis

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    BronchConnect is a prospective trial to investigate the impact of support groups on health care related quality of life in those with noncystic fibrosis bronchiectasis (NCFBE). It has been well demonstrated that participation in patient support groups improves quality of life in those who suffer from interstitial lung disease and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, but the impact is largely unknown for those who live with NCFBE, a chronic lung disease with rising prevalence with no targeted FDA-approved therapy. NCFBE causes chronic cough, dyspnea, recurrent infections, and leads to anxiety and uncertainty. This study seeks to evaluate the impact of a virtual patient support group for patients with NCFBE through questionnaires to assess change of quality of life and anxiety, and exacerbation rates through clinical assessment.
