Incidence and Effects of Sleep Apnea on Intracerebral Aneurysms

Patients with intracerebral aneurysm will be screened for sleep apnea using out of center polysomnography/polygraphy. Baseline blood pressure and medication will be assessed. Patients will be followed for up to 5 years to examine the increase in aneurysm size, rupture rate and changes in medication.

Absorption of Orally Ingested Phosphate in Refeeding Syndrome

A phosphate supplement is part of the treatment of patients with the refeeding syndrome (RFS). It is not known, if the generalized edema also affects the intestine to decrease absorption. The aim was to investigate, if oral treatment is possible in mild to moderate RFS. In a randomized crossover design 12 hospitalized head-neck cancer patients ingested four oral solutions of phosphate in two-day periods. In a low-dose period the investigators compared five mmol phosphate from e...

Marker for FAI Diagnosis

The diagnostic gold standard to differentiate FAI (femural acetabular impingement) from other muscular-tendinous pathologies is, actually, the injection of intra-articular anesthetic (lidocaine), with a pre- and post- evaluation of pain scale. If, after injection, the pain disappears, the pain is probably due to an articular problem (FAI). This kind of differential diagnosis test has a sensibility of 100% and a specificity of 81%. C-terminal telopeptide of type II colla...

Variations of High Sensitivity Troponin T in Neonates

Troponin T-us is a cardiac marker for myocardial infarction. Its use in neonates is increasing, yet normal values are still to be determined for the latest generation of tests, such as High sensitivity cardiac troponin T test. This study is an observational study designed to determine biological normal values of High sensitivity cardiac troponin T test (troponin T -us) in newborns.

Rates of DMBT1 (Glycoprotein like) in Sputum of CF Patients with or without may be different according to their Pseudomonas Aeruginosa chronic colonization status. The aim of this study is to compare rates of DMBT1 (Glycoprotein like) in Sputum of CF patients with or without a Pseudomonas Aeruginosa chronic colonization.

Maple Products and Exercise Performance

The purpose of this study is to compare the acute metabolic responses and time-trial performance following the ingestion of carbohydrate solutions containing either maple syrup, maple sap, corn syrup, a commercial sport drink or water.

Real Time Myocardial Perfusion Echocardiography for Coronary Allograft Vasculopathy

Is real-time myocardial perfusion echocardiography (RTMPE) a feasible and effective non-invasive method to detect significant Coronary Allograft Vasculopathy in pediatric and adult cardiac transplant recipients? Will perfusion deficits correlate with significant coronary artery stenosis identified by standard stress echocardiography and Invasive Coronary Angiography (ICA), and identify diffuse small vessel disease more effectively than current non-invasive techniques?

Physiological Characteristics of High Altitude Climbers

Climbing at high altitude and tolerating hypoxic environment require specific physiological adaptations. Large intersubjects differences exist regarding the ability to adapt to high altitude and hypoxia. The present study aims to characterise the physiological responses to hypoxia in a group of elite climbers by comparison to sea level athletes. We hypothesised that elite climbers would show better physiological responses to hypoxia and more preserved performances compared to s...

REVIVE: Reducing Exsanguination Via In‐Vivo Expandable Foam

The purpose of this study is to demonstrate safety, effectiveness and benefit‐risk profile of ResQFoam for the inhospital treatment of exsanguinating, intraabdominal haemorrhage due to trauma in patients where emergent laparotomy is required.

Steps to Eliminate Postoperative Problems

Radical cystectomy with urinary diversion is associated with substantial perioperative morbidity, including deep venous thrombosis, prolonged ileus, and postoperative functional decline. Post-operative morbidity after cystectomy prolongs the length of stay, increases the risk of readmission, and adds substantially to health care costs. Protocols that emphasize early and frequent ambulation after surgery decreases post-operative morbidity, but poor patient adherence diminishes t...

EUS Guided Core Liver Biopsy and IGB Placement for the Diagnosis and Management of NASH and Obesity

This study is designed to investigate the impact of weight loss achieved with the IGB on NASH with early fibrosis in a select cohort of patients with obesity preselected to have a high pre-test probability of having NASH with early fibrosis based on MRE-Hepatogram. In addition, this study will explore potential non-invasive imaging criteria for NASH and early fibrosis using EUS-Elastography.

Impact of Massage Therapy on the Quality of Life of Hospice Patients

This is a pilot study to evaluate the impact of massage therapy in hospice patients.

Development of Attention Bias Modification for Depression

Although negatively biased attention has a central theoretical and empirical role in the maintenance of depression, there are few behavioral treatments that successfully target and improve this deficit. The current proposal builds upon prior work and aims to further develop an attention bias modification intervention. The investigators propose to develop a highly specific intervention that directly targets negative attention bias and the neurobiology that supports it, using cut...

Pembrolizumab, Lenalidomide, and Dexamethasone in Treating Patients With Newly Diagnosed Multiple Myeloma Eligible for Stem Cell Transplant

This phase II trial studies how well pembrolizumab, lenalidomide, and dexamethasone work in treating patients with newly diagnosed multiple myeloma that are eligible for stem cell transplant. Monoclonal antibodies, such as pembrolizumab, may interfere with the ability of cancer cells to grow and spread. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as lenalidomide and dexamethasone, work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from...

MMV390048 Phase IIa Efficacy POC in P. Vivax and P. Falciparum

The present proof-of-concept Phase IIa study aims to confirm, in patients, the observed activity of MMV390048 against P. falciparum in pre-clinical models and the human Induced Blood-Stage Malaria (IBSM) challenge model, and to determine the activity against P. vivax malaria in patients, both over 14 and 28 days. Additional aims are to characterise the safety of MMV390048 in patients. Patient safety will be monitored for up to 35 days post-dose including pharmacokinetic assessm...
