Examining the Impact of Physician Influence on Hearing Aid User Satisfaction and Retention

Most of us will experience some degree of hearing loss as we get older. Hearing loss can be due to genetics, trauma, infections, exposure to loud sounds, toxins or ageing. It can affect one or both ears and without treatment causes difficulty with following conversations in the home or workplace. Individuals with hearing loss can seek treatment from either an audiologist or a physician. An audiologist specializes in identifying, diagnosing, treating and monitoring disorders of ...

The Effect of Thoracic Spine Manipulation on Peripheral Neurodynamic Mobility

No studies have investigated the effects of a supine thoracic spine manipulation (TSM) on neurodynamic mobility, as compared to a sham intervention. This study aims to determine the immediate effects of TSM on the Upper Limb Provocation Test (ULPT) and Seated Slump Test (SST) compared to a sham intervention in asymptomatic subjects with neurodynamic limitations.

Implication of Stiffness of the Hamstrings, Achilles Tendon and Calf Muscles for Jumping Performance

For optimal jumping performance an adequate interaction of muscles and tendons is required. A parameter in the functional evaluation of both structures is their stiffness (resistance of the tissue against deformation by external forces). It is unclear so far if higher stiffness values of tendon or muscle or a specific stiffness relation of both tissues is the cause of better jumping performance. The present study examines this based on the Achilles tendon and the calf muscles o...

Outpatient Foley Cervix Priming

The aim was to conduct a non-blinded prospective randomized study at a tertiary hospital. Inclusion criteria: term pregnancy with a single fetus in cephalic presentation, Bishop score < 6, gestational age > 41 weeks or medical indication for induction of labor. Patients will be randomized to outpatient or inpatient cervix priming with Foley catheter. The primary outcome will be to compare the variation of Bishop score (difference between Bishop score before and after applicat...

The aim of the study is to demonstrate non-inferiority of immunogenicity and evaluate the safety of a single dose of MenACYW conjugate vaccine compared to a single dose of Menomune® - A/C/Y/W-135 in adults 56 years of age and older in the US. Primary objective: - To demonstrate the non-inferiority of the vaccine seroresponse to meningococcal serogroups A, C, Y, and W following the administration of a single dose of MenACYW conjugate vaccine compared to tho...

IMG-7289, With and Without ATRA, in Patients With Advanced Myeloid Malignancies

This is a Phase 1 open label study of the dose and duration of an orally administered LSD1 inhibitor, IMG-7289, in patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS). Some participants may also receive all-trans retinoic acid (ATRA; also known as tretinoin and Vesanoid®) in combination with IMG-7289. This study investigates the following: - The safety and tolerability of IMG-7289, with and without ATRA - The pharmacodynamic effect of di...

The Effectiveness of Multimodal Educational Intervention to Improve Adherence to Treatment Regimens in Older Stroke Patients: A Randomised Trial

Stroke is a major cause of morbidity and mortality, especially in low and middle income countries including Iran. Patients with recent stroke or TIA are at high risk for new vascular events. Several evidence based strategies in secondary prevention of stroke are available but frequently underused. The study is aimed to evaluate an intervention to improve patients with Stroke.

Evaluation and Prediction of Relapse Risk in Patients With Stable Systemic Lupus Erythematosus

Whether and when systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) patients with stable disease should withdraw glucocorticoid (GC)? How about the relapse risk? What are the risk factors for disease flare? All the above are unclear. Long-course GC treatment has a lot of side-effects even in a sustaining low dose. The aim of this study is to explore the relapse risk after GC withdrawal in SLE patients with stable disease more than one year and to establish a predictive model for flare risk str...

Prevalence of Prone Positioning Use in ARDS Patients

Prone positioning has been shown to improve survival in patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). However, a recent large observational study found that prone positioning was used in only 7% of all ARDS patients, and 16% in the severe category. However, this study did not focus on the prone position per se. In present study, the investigators would like to explore the rate of use of prone positioning in ARDS patients and the reasons why this treatment was not ap...
