1 Pulmomary function tests include the forced expiratory volume (FEV1), which is the amount of air exhaled in one second, and the forced vital capacity (FVC), which is the maximum amount of air that can be exhaled in a single breath.
BMI: Body mass index, FVC: Forced vital capacity, FEV1: Forced expiratory volume at the end of 1 second, FEV1/FVC ratio of forced expiratory volume at the end of 1 second and forced vital capacity, PEFR: Peak expiratory flow rate Table 2: Correlation of BMI with pulmonary function parameters in male participants Parameters Male BMI<25 BMI>25 R P R P FVC 0.

The mean of experimental group of forced vital capacity (FVC) was 2.
Initial therapy led to improvement in the ALS Functional Rating Scale (ALSFRS-R), respiratory forced vital capacity (FVC) and cognitive function.
The change is not accompanied by a corresponding increase in the forced expiratory volume, so the proportion of the forced vital capacity which these subjects can expire in first second, tends to be relatively low [24].
Forced vital capacity (FVC) in children was 94% of the predicted value vs.
The investigators also measured lung function using tests for forced vital capacity (FVC), the maximum volume of air that a person can exhale after maximum inhalation, and diffusion capacity, a measurement of the lung's capacity to transfer gases.
Table 1 shows that the values of forced vital capacity (FVC), forced expiratory volume in 1 s ([FEV.
The pooled analysis of INPULSIS data looked at annual decline in lung function in two pre-specified groups baseline forced vital capacity (FVC) of >70% (n=700) and ?
In addition, there was a significantly negative correlation between plasma CTGF levels in patients with asthma and forced vital capacity (FVC), FEV1, percentage of predicted FEV1, FEV1/FVC ratio, forced expiratory flow at 50% of the FVC (FEF50%), percentage of predicted FEF50%, forced expiratory flow at 75% of FVC (FEF75%) and percentage of predicted FEF75% parameters, which show the degree of airway obstruction.
Results of a Phase 1/2 clinical study of BrainStorm's NurOwn technology in patients with ALS demonstrated a significantly slower decline in overall clinical and respiratory function, as measured by the ALS Functional Rating Score (ALSFRS-R) and Forced Vital Capacity (FVC) score respectively, in the six patients that received an intrathecal injection of the cells in the six months following treatment, as compared to the three months preceding treatment.
