This pilot clinical trial studies the side effects and best dose of ruxolitinib phosphate when given together with chemotherapy before and after a donor stem cell transplant in treating patients with myelofibrosis. Ruxolitinib phosphate may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as fludarabine phosphate and melphalan, work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the...
The purpose of this investigation is to conduct a series of case studies on the impact of LearningRx cognitive training on cognitive skills, brain structure, and daily functioning for participants with ADHD.
Parkinson's disease (PD) is one of the most common neurological diseases manifested by movement disturbance. The concomitant psychiatric symptoms, especially depression, are often observed and have also great impact on patients' quality of life. The treatment of depressive symptoms in PD with antidepressants as the majority remains variable and inefficient, which complicates the disease prognosis. Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) is a non-invasive brain modulation...
This post-market, observational, retrospective multi-center Registry was designed to gather information on the performance of the CE-marked Angel® Catheter in general clinical practice.
The goal of this research proposal is to identify a miRNA expression profile as a biomarker to diagnose and predict acute graft versus host disease (aGVHD) in patients who undergo allogeneic transplantation. This biomarker, once identified, will need validation in larger cohorts.
MRI findings after successful PAE in patients suffering from BPH suggest a complete necrosis of the prostate after this intervention. Thus, PAE might also play a role in the treatment of prostate cancer. This proof of concept study assess the impact of PAE in patients with proven prostate cancer.
Bronchial asthma is a heterogeneous disease characterized by chronic airway inflammation, which is a common and frequently occurring disease in the world, and has resulted in a sustained increase of social and economic burden. However, several studies suggest, lots of asthma patients did not get their asthma controlled. The investigators study showed that in China only 28.7% of asthma patients achieve asthma controlled during 2007-2008. In recent years, application softwares of...
The primary objective of the study is to investigate the efficacy of repeat oral dosing of BIIB074 on paroxysmal pain in participants with Primary Inherited Erythromelalgia (EM). The secondary objective of the study is to investigate the efficacy of repeat oral dosing of BIIB074 on varying additional aspects of pain in participants with EM; and to investigate the safety and tolerability of repeat oral dosing of BIIB074 in participants with EM.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether different DAV132 dose regimens are safe and effective for capturing fecal residues of moxifloxacin in healthy volunteers.
This project aims to assess the ability of cardiac imaging (cardiac MRI and Doppler-echocardiography) post-processing tools to predict a combined end-point of intraventricular thrombosis, silent brain infarcts, clinical stroke and peripheral arterial embolism in patients with first acute myocardial infarction and ventricular dysfunction.
The purpose of the study is to develop a user-friendly, comprehensive, fully integrated web and mobile-based Clinical Decision Support and Monitoring System (CDSMS) for DM diseases screening, diagnosis, treatment and monitoring for the use of physicians and patients in primary care and to determine the effectiveness of the system. For validating the CDSMS for diabetes patients, randomized controlled trial will be conducted.A parallel single blind randomized controlled trial wil...
Overall survival of multiple myeloma (MM) patients has increased significantly due to the availability of the new drugs. Moreover, since MM is an incurable disease, patients are exposed to repeated lines of therapy with different agents. It is therefore increasingly important to monitor the long-term side-effects of treatments. In the present study we focused on ocular disorders. This is an observational study aiming to assess the prevalence of ocular disorders in 100 patients ...
This study evaluate the metabolic effects of orally ingested ketone bodies. The study is conducted as a randomized, cross over study.
This pilot study aims to produce preliminary data on the safety of providing high-protein meals to patients during dialysis, and effects of this intervention on nutritional status and quality of life outcomes. This is a non-randomized, parallel arm study. Meals provided will follow recommended dietary guidelines for HD patients and will provide approximately 1/3 of daily recommended protein intake. Patients will be allocated to either the treatment or control group by HD shift ...
The main objective of the study is the evaluation of the safety and tolerability of FAB117-HC - a medicinal product containing human allogeneic adipose derived adult mesenchymal stem cells expanded and pulsed with H2O2 (HC016 cells ) - administered at a single-time point to patients with acute thoracic traumatic spinal cord injury (SCI). The study will also include initial exploration of potential clinical efficacy. Dose levels of 20 million and 40 million cells will be adminis...

Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common form of chronic degenerative joint disease, as well as the main cause of pain and disability in older persons worldwide. The limited results of physical therapy in OA makes OA patients potential candidates for complementary therapies, such as laying on of hands. The present study aims to investigate the effect of Laying on of Hands on the Pain, Joint Stiffness and Functional Capacity of Elderly Women With Knee Osteoarthritis. This is a ran...
Integrative Analysis of LCLC
Liver transplantation (LTx) is the standard treatment used in the final stage of chronic or acute liver failure. The success for the LT depends on many factors. One of the factors related to morbidity and mortality of these patients is malnutrition. Patients on the waiting list for LTx are increased risk of malnutrition and metabolic disorders that may be associated with decreased functional capacity, change in resting energy expenditure cardiac autonomic dysfunction. These con...
