Interactive Voice Response Technology to Mobilize Contingency Management for Smoking Cessation

Cigarette smoking remains the most common source of preventable morbidity and mortality in the United States, with in excess of $167 billion in economic costs per year. Contingency management (CM), in which tangible incentives are provided contingent on a target behavior like abstinence, is highly efficacious in improving substance abuse treatment outcomes and is receiving increased attention for smoking cessation. Expired carbon monoxide (CO) is the most common objective smoki...

Dynamic Plantar Microvascular Skin Response to Compressive Loads in At-risk Diabetic and Healthy Control: a Pilot Study

The purpose of this pilot study is to compare the dynamic response of microcirculation in the skin on the bottom of the big toe after applying controlled plantar stress in 25 diabetic subjects with a history of foot ulcer and 25 age-matched healthy controls to better understand the role of local hypoxia in neuropathic foot ulceration in subjects with diabetes. The investigators hypothesize that if they apply a gait simulating load to the plantar foot and measure microvas...

Computed Tomography Perfusion (CTP) to Predict Response to Recanalization in Ischemic Stroke Project (CRISP)

The overall goal of the CTP to predict Response to recanalization in Ischemic Stroke Project (CRISP) is to develop a practical tool to identify acute stroke patients who are likely to benefit from endovascular therapy. The project has two main parts. During the first part, the investigators propose to develop a fully automated system (RAPID) for processing of CT Perfusion (CTP) images that will generate brain maps of the ischemic core and penumbra. There will be no patient enr...

An Observational Study in Clinical Practice Management of Patients With Biological Drugs in Monotherapy

This observational multicenter study will evaluate the management of disease and safety in clinical practice in patients with moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis receiving any biological therapies in monotherapy.

This study is designed to compare the efficacy and safety of first-line icotinib treatment and first-line chemotherapy followed by maintenance treatment with icotinib.

Postoperative Therapy After Interposition Arthroplasty in CMC1

In this randomized controlled trial the investigators want to investigate whether early versus late mobilisation after surgery in the first carpometacarpal joint (CMC1) leads to a faster recovery of hand function. The investigators also want to explore patients' satisfaction with the two different treatment regimes. The participants in the control group will receive the standard treatment at Diakonhjemmet hospital: immobilisation of the thumb in a splint for six weeks. The part...

Phase II Study of Proton Radiation Therapy for Neuroblastoma

This research study is evaluating a therapy called proton beam radiation therapy (PBRT) as a possible treatment for neuroblastoma. Neuroblastoma most commonly occurs in and around the adrenal glands, which are located at the top of the kidneys. However, it can also occur in other areas where groups of nerve cells exist, such as other areas of the abdomen, neck and near the spine. Conventional radiation therapy with photons is used as standard treatment for many patients ...

This study is a phase I/II open label clinical study in patients with platinum-resistant epithelial ovarian cancer. The Phase I part of the study will determine the dose of ColoAd1 to be recommended for further studies and will examine primarily the safety and tolerability but also the pharmacokinetics of administering ColoAd1 intraperitoneally. Once the dose of IP ColoAd1 to be used in combination with IV weekly paclitaxel has been determined, the phase II stage will begin as ...

Irrigation of Chronic Subdural Hematomas - is More Better?

There are numerous reported ways to treat chronic subdural hematomas (CSDH) and practice is still differing considerably between departments. Except for a recent randomized controlled trial (RCT) that found that postoperative subdural drainage was better than no drain, there is no higher level evidence. Another recent RCT did not replicate these findings, but the study was severely underpowered. Aim of this population based study is to compare clinical results (reoperation rat...

The Addition of Chloroquine to Chemoradiation for Glioblastoma,

Glioblastomas (GBM) are the most common type of primary brain tumors with an annual incidence of approximately 500 patients in the Netherlands. Despite extensive treatment including a resection, radiation therapy and chemotherapy, the median overall survival is only 14.6 months. Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) amplification or mutation is regularly observed in GBM and is thought to be a major contributor to resistance to radiotherapy and chemotherapy. The most co...

An Observational Cohort Study of the Safety and Efficacy of Fibrinogen Concentrate, Human (FCH) in Subjects With Congenital Fibrinogen Deficiency

This is a multicenter, non interventional, retrospective cohort study with a prospective, observational follow-up component to investigate the safety and efficacy of FCH use in subjects with congenital fibrinogen deficiency. Data will be collected on the safety and efficacy of FCH as used for the treatment of acute bleeding episodes, routine prophylaxis and perioperative bleeding in these subjects. All subjects have received FCH and may continue to receive FCH at the discretion...

A Pharmacokinetic Study of Paliperidone ER

Background Paliperidone is an active metabolite of risperidone, both of which are antipsychotic agents for treatment of schizophrenia and related psychotic disorders. Pharmacogenetic studies have revealed that the efficacy and side effects of antipsychotic agents are related to polymorphisms of specific genes, however, there are just a few related studies on paliperidone. The current study aims to evaluate whether pharmacogenetic markers related to risperidone and genetic marke...
