Inflammatory Biomarkers and Brain Metabolites, a Study Based on Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy

Suicidal behaviors (SB) are a major health problem in France : 10 000 suicides and 220 000 suicide attempts every year. SB management is therefore a major public health issue. Evidence associated dysregulation of the serotonergic system and the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis to vulnerability to SB. Recent data point to linke these abnormalities with neuroinflammatory ...

Video-Feedback Interaction Guidance for Improving Interactions Between Depressed Mothers and Their Infants ("VID-KIDS")

Postpartum depression (PPD) is a major public health issue. Known as "the thief that steals motherhood" since symptoms obstruct a mother's capacity for understanding and enjoying her baby, PPD affects approximately 1 in 5 moms. Built via "serve and return" interactions (e.g. baby smiles, mom smiles back), sensitive and responsive exchanges are the foundation for healthy chi...

Other outcomes measured will includ...

Three-times-weekly Versus Daily Growth Hormone (GH) Treatment in naïve GH-deficient Children

Growth hormone (GH) treatment in patients with GH deficiency (GHD) is commonly administered daily, although the pulsatile GH secretion is unlikely to be achieved and this regimen is often not complied. The auxological effect of three injections per week (TIW) regimen is controversial, while the metabolic effects were never evaluated in children. The objective of this study ...

Oxidative Stress and Opiorphin in Temporomandibular Disorders

The objective of this study is to quantify salivary oxidative stress biomarkers in patients with temporomandibular disorders and to quantify recently isolated endogenous peptide opiorphin in saliva of these patients. As chronic exposure to stress may cause hyperalgesia as a result of the stress response in the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis, aim is to test this as an u...

Administration of Clomiphene: Short and Long Term Metabolism in an Anti-Doping Setting

Clomiphene (Clomid) is a drug FDA approved to treat female infertility, however, it is often used by men in an off-label setting to both treat male infertility and in a multitude of sports disciplines to increase performance. Study Objectives: - Determine detection windows for clomiphene and its metabolites in urine following a medium-term administration ...

Diagnosing Adult Growth Hormone Deficiency

The purpose of this study was to validate the growth hormone releasing hormone (GHRH) plus arginine (GHRH+arg) stimulation test and it´s cut-off limits for diagnosis of adult growth hormone deficiency using the growth hormone (GH) Immulite 2000 Xpi assay calibrated against the IS 98/574 from the World Health Organization. A specific aim was to study the effect of gender an...

Prophylactic Oral Antibiotics on Sinonasal Outcomes Following Endoscopic Transsphenoidal Surgery for Pituitary Lesions

To find out whether oral antibiotics given after transsphenoidal endoscopic surgery for pituitary adenoma improves sinus and nasal symptoms, reduces the incidence of infection (sinusitis), and helps mucosal healing in the nasal passages.

Lanreotide in the Treatment of Small Bowel Motility Disorders

This is a human research study looking at the effectiveness of Lanreotide (study medication) in treating small bowel motility disorders. It is similar to a natural hormone somatostatin that is produced in the body in the stomach, duodenum, pancreas and brain. Somatostatin is a growth hormone-inhibiting hormone. Lanreotide is a man made hormone and is a long acting medicatio...

THIN Database Study: Resource Use and Outcomes in Patients With Adrenal Insufficiency Prescribed Hydrocortisone: Immediate, or Modified Release, or Prednisolone

To describe clinical outcomes and both primary and secondary care health care resource use in patients who have been prescribed either immediate-release (IR) hydrocortisone or modified-release (MR) hydrocortisone or prednisolone in the UK.

Serum Cortisol Levels in Patients With Anxiety and Depression With Symptomatic Oral Lichen Planus

Oral lichen planus (OLP) is a T-cell mediated chronic immunological disease directed to a still unknown antigen. It is a mucocutaneous and a psychosomatic disorder, with unknown prevalence rate; however studies suggest an incidence of 0.02 to 0.22% among the Indian population. 75% of patients with cutaneous lichen planus also experience oral lesions and may be precipitated ...

Effect of Shorten Gonadotropin-releasing Hormone Agonist Therapy on the Outcome of in Vitro Fertilization-Embryo Transfer in Patients With Endometriosis

Gonadotropin-releasing hormone analogue (GnRH-a) is a synthetic decapeptide compound which can down-regulate pituitary function causing a temporary low estrogen state. Since endometriosis is an estrogen-dependent disease, the use of long-acting GnRH-a can control the growth of endometriosis by inhibiting ovary function.Some scholars have found that, for adenomyosis patients...

Circadian Function and Cardio-metabolic Risk in Adrenal Insufficiency

The purpose of this study is to compare cardio-metabolic risk, glucose tolerance, and night time blood pressure between healthy control subjects and patients with adrenal insufficiency.

Testosterone for Fatigue in Men With MS

Fatigue is a major symptom in people with multiple sclerosis (MS), for which treatments are limited. Several studies have shown that a large proportion of men with MS have low testosterone levels. We propose a two-site clinical trial using topical testosterone gel as a treatment for MS-related fatigue in men with progressive MS who have low or low-normal testosterone levels...

The primary study objective is to evaluate changes in insulin sensitivity. The secondary study objective is to evaluate changes in the prevalence of...

Corticosteroid Rhythms in Hypoparathyroid Patients

We hypothesise that parathyroid hormon (PTH) depletion interferes with normal activity of the hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal (HPA)-axis and the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone-system (RAAS), which in turn may impact morbidity and quality of life. The main objective of the current study is to test if PTH deficiency influences the secretion of corticosteroids and whether any ab...

Effects of SNP of GnRH Receptor Genes in IVF Patients

Gonadotropin-releasing hormone analogue (GnRH-a) "long protocol" is a protocol for pituitary down-regulation in IVF. However, it is common in clinic that some patients are hypersensitive to pituitary down-regulation and have pituitary oversuppression, resulting in prolonged ovarian stimulation and increased consumption of exogenous gonadotropin(Gn). On the other hand, some ...
