The purpose of the study is to better understand the effects of a yoga program on adolescents with juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA). The investigators want to learn whether or not a yoga therapy based program will decrease pain and improve quality of life in patients with JIA. This is an 8-week program with home program of online videos.
This study aims to survey the drug disposal methods of orthopedic foot and ankle patients with excess pain medication following and operation. The study is a randomized control trial comparing the use of FDA approved at home disposal methods to current clinical methods of recommending disposal at medication drop off locations.
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic, systemic autoimmune disease affecting the joints and can lead to joint pain, swelling, redness and stiffness and can cause deformity, loss of strength and immobility. This cross-sectional qualitative study aims to explore the burden of established RA by conducting semi-structured Concept elicitation (CE) interviews (60 minutes duratio...
The Antibiotic Prophylaxis in Patients Undergoing Elective Total Knee Arthroplasty (TKA): Multi-Center Trial is a study that will compare the effectiveness of various perioperative strategies for antibiotic delivery as prophylaxis for periprosthetic joint infections (PJI) and surgical site infection in elective primary TKA. The investigators hypothesize that a single dose o...
Disorders of growth, puberty and sex development can have genetic causes. The exome analysis could detect new mutations responsible for these disorders and the frequency of these mutations in these disorders, their association with other malformations.
The objective of this study is to evaluate an integral strategy in which diabetes mellitus 2 (DM2) and pulmonary tuberculosis (TB) are managed together. The researchers propose a community intervention with two arms in 4 health centers in Orizaba, Veracruz. Patients will be assigned to either arm by convenience. One arm will receive the joint treatment strategy and another ...
Study Title INFINITY™Total Ankle Replacement Follow-up (ITAR) Study Design Prospective, multi-site, multi-year post-market clinical follow-up study Study Group Primary/Unilateral and/or bilateral Total Ankle Arthroplasty subjects implanted with INFINITY™ Total Ankle System Number of Subjects 200 with 10 sites
HL237 is a new autoimmune therapeutic agent for rheumatoid arthritis, including the basic structure of biguanide in metformin, an existing diabetes drug. The immune modulating activity of HL237 was demonstrated in animal model. HL237 is a STAT3 inhibitor and STAT3 is well known for an important regulator inhibiting Th17 cells and activating Treg cells. Therefore, wh...
This study seeks to uncover potential genetic determinants of pulmonary embolism (PE). Our translational goal is to ultimately identify certain genetic markers that will allow us to stratify patients in terms of their PE risk post total knee or total hip arthroplasty. The clinical implications for this study would allow for better patient care by lowering the risk of post-o...
This is a randomized, double-blind study to evaluate the safety and investigate the efficacy of YRA-1909 in Patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis who are on a stable dose of Methotrexate(MTX) and who have and inadequate response to MTX(MTX-IR).
The aims of the research are: - To predict factors affecting hand dysfunction in patient with rheumatoid arthritis - To study the effect of hand dysfunction on quality of life in patient with rheumatoid arthritis
Comparing the Effectiveness of a Treat-to-target (T2T) Disease Management Strategy vs. Routine Care (RC) in Adult Patients With Moderate to Severe Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) Treated With Subcutaneous Abatacept (Orencia - SC)
This is a 12 month prospective, multicenter, post-marketing, observational study to compare the effectiveness of a treat-to-target (T2T) disease management strategy vs. routine care (RC) in adult patients with moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis (RA) treated with subcutaneous abatacept (Orencia - SC). Patients completing the study will be offered to participate in a 12-...
Osteoarthritis (OA) is a chronic and prevalent joint disorder with great impact on quality of life and high economic burden. Although a number of conservative therapies have proven to be effective for the management of hand OA, only modest treatment effects were reported for most individual interventions. The aim of the proposed study is to assess the effect of laser therap...
Post-discharge pain after total knee arthroplasty remains problematic; many patients have excessive pain at the 2 week time point (and often thereafter). Reduction in opioid use has become a national goal, due to the 'epidemic' in opioid misuse.
Non-interventional, prospective, observational study to assess the relative risk of anti-CCP positive patients to develop (subclinical) signs of inflammation in accordance with early Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) in a population without pre-classified RA but new1 onset of non-specific musculoskeletal (MSK) symptoms in general practices in Germany and subsequent 36 months follow...
The primary objective of this study is to obtain implant survivorship and clinical outcomes data for the commercially available G7 BiSpherical Acetabular Shell.
Data on the impact of biological therapies, especially of IL6-blocker treatment, on the T-cell phenotype in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) are limited, inconclusive, and mainly involve short-term follow-up. Here, the investigator prospectively measure the percentages of 15 circulating T-cell subtypes using flow cytometry. The investigators aim to obtained transversal and longit...
The aim of this work is to evaluate the diagnostic value of anti-MCV antibodies in rheamatoid arthritis patients and to correlate its relationtion disease activity and manifestations.
The objective of this study is to use radiostereometric analysis (RSA) and clinical outcome measures to evaluate early post-operative implant stability and the clinical performance of Stryker's Trident II Acetabular Cup.
Cytochromes P450, main enzymes of drug metabolism, play a prominent role in the first-pass metabolism of oral substances. Inter-individual variability in their activity due to genetic and environmental factors has been observed and may be associated with adverse therapeutic outcomes (ineffectiveness or toxicity). The inflammation, whether acute or chronic, can theoretically...
The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of BMS-986195 in combination with an oral contraceptive in healthy female patients.
While bracing has been shown to be beneficial for patients with osteoarthritis (OA) in terms of function and strength, whether these unloader braces are also similarly beneficial after total knee arthroplasty (TKA) surgery needs to be examined. Therefore the investigators questioned whether wearing a brace that has previously been shown to increase strength and function in ...
Succes of the hip arthroplasty depends on the measures that optimize perioperative conditions.It is planned to evaluate semi-cloosed loop system in the hip arthroplasty surgery.
The PROOF Study is an open prospective interventional non-randomized study which aim is to determine the outcome / effect and safety of fosfomycin in patients with hip, knee or shoulder PJI.
Total joint replacement is an ideal procedure to treat end stage joint disease. Good post-op pain relief could accelerate patient recovery and rehabilitation, and decrease admission days and medical cost. Local injection of LevoBupivacaine is an effective method in post-operative pain control. The effectiveness of local analgesia was noticed clinically. However, thorough st...
