Multicenter International Cross-Sectional Evaluation of Pulmonary Alveolar Proteinosis (MICEPAP) Trial

Study ID Alternative Stable ID Type
phs001309 Clinical Trial

Study Description

The purpose of this study is to (1) compare a technically improved assay with an existing assay used to measure serum anti-GM-CSF antibodies in stored serum samples previously obtained from patients diagnosed with either primary, secondary, congenital or idiopathic pulmonary alveolar proteinosis (PAP), other chronic diseases or disease-free, healthy individuals; (2) determine the prevalence and levels of anti-GM-CSF autoantibodies and (3) define the breadth of the autoimmune antibody responses in primary PAP patients from the United States, Japan, Australia, and Europe using previously collected serum samples; and (4) using a chart review approach, compare the clinical, radiologic and laboratory features of primary PAP patients to determine if differences exist among patients in these globally geographically distributed regions.
