Age 18+ · Female Participants · 7 Total Inclusion Criteria
Mark “yes” if the following statements are true for you:
This text is about a female person who is 18 years or older.
1) a) demonstration of diffuse opacities on CT consistent with LAM;
1) b) elevated serum levels of HGF and/or c-met protein
The individual has a lung biopsy, abdominal mass biopsy, lymph node biopsy, or kidney biopsy that reveals LAM, tuberous sclerosis, angiomyolipomata (diagnosed by CT, MRI by the site radiologist or biopsy), or chylous pleural effusion (verified by tap), or VEGF-D level ≥ 800 pg/ml.
, low hemoglobin level (As high as 11.0 g/dL in women), or history of venous thromboembolism
The text discusses a pre-trial measure of decline in FEV 1 rate
predicted suggests that the patient does not have asthma
If the post-bronchodilator forced expiratory volume in one second is above 70% predicted, it suggests that the patient does not have asthma.
The individual has a baseline residualvolume of 120% of predicted, desaturation of 4% or more on six minute walk testing on room air, and more than 20 cysts on the carinal cut of theCT scan.
Michael Gill holds a Bachelors of Science in Integrated Science and Mathematics from McMaster University. During his degree he devoted considerable time modeling the pharmacodynamics of promising drug candidates. Since then, he has leveraged this knowledge of the investigational new drug ecosystem to help his father navigate clinical trials for multiple myeloma, an experience which prompted him to co-found Power Life Sciences: a company that helps patients access randomized controlled trials.
