We are pleased to announce that ‘Functional imaging in asthma and COPD: design of the NOVELTY ADPro substudy’ has been published in ERJ Open Research.
The article describes the design and rationale of the Advanced Diagnostic Profiling (ADPro) substudy of NOVELTY, which is being conducted in a subset of approximately 180 patients from two primary care sites in the UK. The ADPro substudy will use hyperpolarised Xenon-129 magnetic resonance imaging (129Xe MRI) and physiological and metabolic measurements to explore structural and functional changes in the lungs and their association with phenotypes and endotypes in patients with asthma and/or COPD. Patterns of ventilation, gas transfer, acinar dimensions and small airways dysfunction will be examined.
Findings from the ADPro substudy should increase understanding of the phenotypes and endotypes of patients with asthma and/or COPD, and will help to inform a precision-based medicine approach to patient care in future clinical practice.
