A feasibility, randomised controlled trial of a complex breathlessness intervention in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (BREEZE-IPF): study protocol. ERJ Open Research, 5(4), https://doi.org/10.1183/23120541.00186-2019

Introduction: Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a chronic and progressive lung disease that causes breathlessness and cough that worsen over time, limiting daily activities and negatively impacting quality of life. Although treatments are now av... Read More about A feasibility, randomised controlled trial of a complex breathlessness intervention in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (BREEZE-IPF): study protocol.

Battery operated fan and chronic breathlessness: Does it help? (2019)
Journal Article

The hand-held fan and the Calming Hand for people with chronic breathlessness: a feasibility trial (2019)
Journal Article
Swan, F., English, A., Allgar, V., Hart, S. P., & Johnson, M. J. (2019). The hand-held fan and the Calming Hand for people with chronic breathlessness: a feasibility trial. Journal of pain and symptom management, 57(6), 1051-1061.e1. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jpainsymman.2019.02.017

Context: The battery-operated hand-held fan (“fan”)and the Calming Hand (CH), a cognitive strategy, are interventions used in clinical practice to relieve chronic breathlessness. Objective: To test the feasibility of a Phase III randomized controlled... Read More about The hand-held fan and the Calming Hand for people with chronic breathlessness: a feasibility trial.

Alteration in endothelial permeability occurs in response to the activation of PAR2 by factor Xa but not directly by the TF-factor VIIa complex (2019)
Journal Article
Benelhaj, N. E., Maraveyas, A., Featherby, S., Collier, M. E., Johnson, M. J., & Ettelaie, C. (2019). Alteration in endothelial permeability occurs in response to the activation of PAR2 by factor Xa but not directly by the TF-factor VIIa complex. Thrombosis Research, 175, 13-20. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.thromres.2019.01.009

Alterations in the endothelial permeability occur in response to the activation of coagulation mechanisms in order to control clot formation. The activation of the protease activated receptors (PAR) can induce signals that regulate such cellular resp...
