COPD Trials Return to the Respiratory homepage COPD TRIALS COPD Trials Highest quality endpoint data collection for all your study’s lung function parameter measurements.

Does your study data sufficiently demonstrate your drug’s effectiveness?

To gain regulatory approval for your new Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) drug, your study must demonstrate a core improvement in lung function parameters or exacerbation risk and patient- rated endpoints such as quality of life or key symptoms such as breathlessness or cough. Many studies are undermined by variability in data or a failure to capture sufficient exacerbation events.

Template Integrated Hub for Spirometry that measures lung function and cardiac safety endpoints, and integrates with Imaging endpoint collection and eCOA. MasterScopeTM (Forced Expiratory Volume at one second) is a strong indicator of future exacerbation in asthma patients. FEV1 (Peak Expiratory Flow) provides information about the level of airflow obstruction in asthma patients. PEF (Fractional Concentration of Exhaled Nitric Oxide) determines how much inflammation is present in the lungs. FeNO (Airway Oscillation System) is a noninvasive technique to assess airway obstruction in asthma patients. AOS (Electrocardiogram) is a simple intuitive method for clinical trial sites to collect high quality 12L ECGs. ECG MasterScope is an Integrated hub for Spirometry, 12-lead ECG, FeNO, FOT and Home FEV1/PEF/eDiary MasterScope is an Integrated hub for Spirometry, 12-lead ECG, FeNO, FOT and Home FEV1/PEF/eDiary MasterScope is an Integrated hub for Spirometry, 12-lead ECG, FeNO, FOT and Home FEV1/PEF/eDiary NIOX VERO® Fractional, exhaled Nitric Oxide measurement system Thorasys® Tremeflo® Airwave oscillometry ECG Electrocardiogram

Disease Progression Trials

Lung Safety and Disease Progression Trials

Because decline in respiratory function is a direct result of progression of certain non-pulmonary diseases, demonstrating a treatment benefit on respiratory endpoints may provide evidence of your drug’s effectiveness. ERT enables precise lung function testing integrated with other efficacy data points like patient-reported outcomes (PRO) and more.
