Evaluation of safety and efficacy of iron isomaltoside compared to iron sucrose in subjects suffering from IDA
Syracuse University Fit Families is designed to increase the activity level and frequency of the children through modified activities using adapted equipment and, importantly, to increase the families' comfort level in having their children participate in a variety of physical activities, including team and individual sports.
The purpose of the study is to demonstrate that continuous apomorphine treatment during the night compared with placebo improves sleep quality in insomniac patient with Parkinson's disease.
The purpose of this study is to compare the survival and toxicity of TPC (TAXOL, DDP AND CAPECITABINE ) VS PF (cisplatin and 5-Fluorouracil) as induction chemotherapy combined with concurrent chemoradiotherapy (CCRT) for stage IVa-b nasopharyngeal carcinoma patients in endemic area.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the variations of respiratory changes in pulse oximeter plethysmographic amplitude (delta POP) according to different contact forces between finger and sensor of pulse oximeter. During general anesthesia without surgical stimuli, pulse oximeter sensor is applied with contact force of 0.2-0.4N and POP waveform is obtained for 90 seconds. Then, pulse oximeter sensor is applied with contact force of 0.8-1.0N and measurement will be repeated...
Older adults living with incurable and advancing life-limiting illness frequently desire to spend as much time as possible comfortably at home, rather than in hospital. They often have complex problems that not only affect their ability to function, but also their and their family caregivers' overall quality of life (QOL). Routine assessment of their perceived health care needs and their self-reported QOL is necessary to ensure that patients' and family caregivers' concerns are...
Abstract Introduction Bystander cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) can more than double the patient's chance of survival in Out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA). In Singapore, bystander CPR rate was low. Recent studies have proposed and validated the use of popular songs as aids in performing CPR. These songs may not be widely known when applied to a different population, and further, may lose popularity over time. "Count on me Singapore" (COMS) is believed to be ...
1. To elucidate the role of CTC detection in the evaluation of risk level in PCa patients, and establish a mathematic model for predicting the pathological status. 2. To explore the possible subtle change in CTC condition after radical prostatectomy.
This protocol is a phase II multi-center randomized controlled trial (RCT) evaluating the efficacy of SBRT in multi-metastatic NSCLC patients who are pan-negative for driver mutations.
The purpose of this study is: 1. To establish a set of diagnostic criteria of intraoperative frozen section of early stage lung adenocarcinoma, including clinicopathologic and molecular characteristics. 2. To assess its clinical usefulness in guiding surgical procedure for early stage lung adenocarcinoma.
This study aim to detect change in vascular inflammation following intense lipid lowering therapy
This research study is being done to develop a new test to identify prostate cancer patients at highest risk of radiotherapy-related complications. This research study would allow monitoring of total tissue damage within 24 hours of radiation exposure in blood samples that could give an initial result within a few days that would help clinicians make treatment decisions. Detection of unusual tissue damage at this early time, well before symptoms occur, could allow doctors to ta...
Trial Investigating Safety, Tolerability and Pharmacokinetics for Single Doses of NNC9204-1177 in Subjects being Overweight or with Obesity
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic inflammatory disease that affects 0.5-1% of the population, and where many patients in spite of modern pharmacological treatment fail to reach remission. The main goal of the randomized cross-over trial ADIRA (Anti-inflammatory Diet In Rheumatoid Arthritis) is to test the hypothesis that a diet intervention will decrease disease activity and improve quality of life in patients with established RA.
This prospective intended to observe the influence of prophylactic and empirical anti-fungal treatment on Severe Sepsis patients with perforations. With the consent of patients' legal guardian for prophylactic use of antifungal agents, patients were divided into two groups: prophylactic group and Empirical group.
This study aims to determine whether IHAT is non-inferior to ferrous sulphate at correcting iron deficiency and anaemia, and if IHAT does not increase diarrhoea risk in young children living in rural and resource-poor areas of the Gambia. The study hypothesis is that IHAT will eliminate iron deficiency and improve haemoglobin levels in young children without increasing infectious diarrhoea or promoting inflammation in the gut.
Ultrasound guidance has been established as an effective and safe method during insertion of internal jugular vein catheter.. Needle visualization during advancement toward the vein has a great impact on both safety and success of the procedure. Clinicians have adopted variable techniques to increase needle visualization including changing needle- probe relation (in-plane vs. out-of-plane), or using specific ultrasound needles The angle between the inserting needle and the prob...
Australian Indigenous children, particularly those living in remote communities, suffer a disproportionately high burden of rotavirus gastroenteritis disease. Despite the introduction of rotavirus vaccine into the Northern Territory (NT) Immunisation Schedule in 2006, the rate of hospitalization for rotavirus in NT Aboriginal children < 5 years continues to be high, and the rate ratio of rotavirus hospitalisations for Indigenous versus non-Indigenous children has actually incre...
Retrospective non-interventional study to evaluate safety and efficacy of NOVOCART® Inject in patients with full-thickness cartilage defects in the knee joint.
The purpose of this study is to determine the effectiveness of neural mobilization techniques compared to standard care treatment in patients with lumbar radiculitis.
Evaluate the safety and efficacy of abdominal DualSculpting with CoolAdvantage applicators.
The purpose of this study is to assess the safety and tolerability of SF2000SD in adult male healthy volunteers
This study investigates cannabinoid CB1 receptors in human brown adipose tissue (BAT) and other tissues using positron emission tomography (PET) imaging. Subjects will be scanned in room temperature conditions and during controlled cold exposure, and the density of CB1 receptors in BAT and other tissues will be quantified. We hypothesize, that cannabinoid signaling is increased in cold conditions, when BAT is metabolically active. Understanding the mechanisms of BAT activation...
Preterm newborns are born with lower vitamin D stores. Although vitamin D supplementation is recommended there is no consensus regarding the adequate dose of supplementation for preterm infants.
To compare two intrauterine systems in order to avoid complications originating from short pregnancy interval and undesired pregnancies in the early postpartum period.
