Obesity is directly related to arterial dysfunction and negatively associated to muscle strength. High-intensity resistance exercise is the favored modality to offset muscle weakness, yet, adverse effects on arterial function (pulse wave velocity, wave reflection, and aortic and brachial blood pressures) have been observed. Conventional unloaded-whole body vibration training (WBVT) has improved arterial function in overweight/obese women but appears to be low-intensity. Neverth...
The main objective of this study is to compare subject's compliance and satisfaction for two modes of treatment of toenails infection (Onychomycosis) with Loceryl Nail Lacquer (Loceryl NL) and Ciclopirox Nail Lacquer (Ciclopirox NL).
Soft tissue augmentation with injectable hyaluronic acid (HA) is a well-established modality for the correction of facial volume loss, fat atrophy, fine lines, and wrinkles. HA is a glycosaminoglycan that is composed of repeating D-glucuronic acid and D-N-acetylglucosamine disaccharide units. Because HA is a natural and inert constituent of the dermis, it represents an ideal substance for soft tissue augmentation. Current FDA-approved HA fillers are typically utilized to either...
This randomized controlled trial assesses the efficacy of a 6-week, dissonance-based, weight-gain prevention program (Fit4Duty) designed to reduce unhealthy weight gain among military service members at-risk for obesity. The Fit4Duty program is an adaptation for the military of an existing civilian obesity prevention program, Project Health, which reduced obesity onset by 50% in healthy civilian young adults. Fit4Duty is compared to a nutrition education control condition and i...
The current proposal is a pilot study. The Investigators plan to use next generation genome sequencing (NGGS) to define the molecular and genetic profiles of 3 cases of germ cell tumor (GCT) (with a component of yolk sac tumor) at the time of the initial diagnosis and 3 cases of late relapse GCT's, which are characterized by yolk sac tumor (and AFP secreting) predominant disease. Investigators seek to demonstrate the feasibility of obtaining tissue biopsies (either archi...
This is a multicentre randomised double-blind phase II trial, sponsored by Gustave Roussy and involving one French center as well as the Spanish Lung Cancer Group (≈20 centers of the SLCG). Five hundred patients with diagnosis of stage IIIB/IV NSCLC will initially be registered prior to receiving the first line platinum-based chemotherapy and provide consent for retrieving archival tissue collection and providing translational blood samples and tumor biopsies. ...
This is a single-visit prospective study to establish a real world Marketed Contact Lens 'Through Focus Curve' (TFC) measurement by comparing the consistency of vision between myopes and hyperopes. 33 subjects will be enrolled (at least 15 myopes and 15 hyperopes), who are 40 years of age or older, for a 1-visit, 4-hour study for measurements to be taken.
An intermittent energy restricted (IER) diet may modify cardio-metabolic disease risk factors compared to an energy-matched continuous energy restricted (CER) diet. A randomised controlled parallel design trial will determine the impact of a short-term IER diet (2 consecutive days of very low calorie diet (VLCD), 5 days moderate energy restriction each week for a 4 week period), compared to a CER diet, on insulin sensitivity in healthy (disease-free) subjects with central obesi...
The main purpose of this study is to assess the usability of long-term stored H5N1 antigen and adjuvant. The study is designed to assist in stockpile management by assessing the safety, reactogenicity, and immunogenicity long-term stored influenza A/Vietnam/H5N1 vaccine when administered with or without MF59® adjuvant.
This study examines how the PEERS (Laugeson & Frankel, 2010; Laugeson, 2016) social-behavioral intervention affects social relationships, and brain development and function in adolescents and young adults with autism spectrum disorder.
In England each year over 65,000 people fracture their hip. Most of these patients are elderly females with the fracture occurring after a simple trip or stumble. Approximately half of these fractures are classified from their relationship to the hip joint capsule as extracapsular. The majority of these fractures are treated surgically by internal fixation using, either a plate and screws (sliding hip screw) or nail and screws (intramedullary nail). Recent randomised stu...
This prospective study will enroll up to 330 men with PSA-persistent or PSA-recurrent prostate cancer after curative-intent primary therapy and negative or equivocal findings on standard-of-care imaging. Consenting participants will be imaged with 18F-fluciclovine PET/CT. Site clinicians will manage study subjects per standard practices and will document any change in treatment based on review of 18F-fluciclovine PET/CT findings. All participants will be followed for up to 6 mo...
The aims of the study are to see if additional insulin doses for the fat and protein in a meal, given at different times, improve blood glucose levels and are safe and acceptable to children with Type 1 diabetes using multiple daily insulin injections.
In this phase 1 study, the lymphatic transport will be examined using Near InfraRed Indocyanine Green fluorescence imaging (NIR-ICG) of the upper extremities in healthy individuals using a MultiSpectral Imaging System (MSImager).
The list of medications that prolong the QT interval and can provoke torsade de pointes keeps expanding. This list includes not only antiarrhythmic drugs, but also medications with no cardiac indications. All these medications prolong the QT interval because they block a specific potassium channel on the myocardial cell membrane: the channel for the rapid component of the delayed rectifier potassium current or "IKr". The risk for developing torsade de pointes for patients takin...
Pregnant Women beyond the date of birth. will be followed while coming to routine monitoring. physiological parameter of cervical length will be measured as the differential predictor to determine their due date. the cervical length will be measured as part of routine gynecologic examination to women who come for routine over due date follow up. additional medical data will be collected from the patient medical record.- demographic data, and all the routine prenatal medical ca...
Evaluation of safety and performance of the SPINNER device and wound dressing in the treatment of donor-site wounds (DSW)
Subjects to compare the single dose bioavailability of Torrent's Esomeprazole Mg DR Capsule 1×40 mg and Nexium 40 mg DR Capsule containing Esomeprazole 40 mg of AastraZeneca LP, USA. Dosing periods of studies were separated by a washout period of 5 days.
Subjects to compare the single dose bioavailability of Torrent's Esomeprazole Delayed Release Capsule 1 × 40 mg and Nexium 1× 40 mg of AastraZeneca LP, USA. Dosing periods of studies were separated by a washout period of 7 days.
This is a single center, prospective trial of pessary use prior to reconstructive pelvic floor surgery for pelvic organ prolapse. The goal of the study is to evaluate the change in pelvic floor symptoms with pessary use and subsequent reconstructive surgery. Additionally, we will assess the impact that preoperative pessary use has on patient self-reported preparedness for surgery.
The purpose of this study is to compare acute tear production produced by the Oculeve Intranasal Lacrimal Neurostimulator with two control devices in participants with aqueous tear deficiency.
Spatial neglect is a common attention disorder after right hemisphere stroke and is associated with decreased independence and quality of life. Despite its high prevalence in the stroke population, there is currently no standard of care for the treatment of neglect. Prism adaptation (PA) is a promising rehabilitation technique, however incorporation into clinical care has been limited likely due to the lack of standardized procedures. The investigators have developed a computer...
