Antioxidant Use in Diabetes to Reduce Oxidative Stress

Dietary supplementation with antioxidant vitamins, such as Vitamin C and Vitamin E, reduces malformation rates in embryos of diabetic animals. However, human trials exploring the benefits of these antioxidant vitamins have produced unsatisfactory results in trials designed to alleviating diabetic retinopathy, cardiovascular disease, and preeclampsia in pregnancies. The investigators hypothesize that more potent, and better-targeted antioxidants, such as N-acetylcysteine (NAC) a...

The main study objective is to assess the content validity and the psychometric characteristics of the Insomnia Daytime Symptoms and Impacts Questionnaire™ (IDSIQ™).

Testicular Vascular Evaluation in Patients Undergoing Inguinal Hernia Repair

Patients scheduled to undergo laparoscopic preperitoneal or open inguinal hernia repair will be evaluated by means of scrotal/testicular ecocolordoppler ultrasound investigation before and after surgery in order to rule out the potential impact of the surgical procedure on testicular arterial and venous blood flow

The purpose of this study is to assess the accuracy of FRC and airway resistance calculate values of Spircare device as compared to the conventional body plethysmograph in healthy adults and patients with obstructive and restrictive pulmonary diseases/disorders.

Cytokine and Visual Outcome Variations in Eyes Receiving Aflibercept

Objective: To determine the association between baseline aqueous cytokine levels and treatment intervals for patients under a variable dosing regimen with intravitreal aflibercept in patients with neovascular age-related macular degeneration (nAMD), macular edema secondary to retinal vein occlusion (RVO) and diabetic macular edema (DME). Methods: A prospective, single-centre study will be performed containing 3 sub-studies according to each study population: nAMD, macular edem...

Cytokine and Visual Outcome Variations in Eyes Receiving Ranibizumab

Objective: To determine the association between baseline aqueous cytokine levels and treatment intervals for patients under a variable dosing regimen with intravitreal ranibizumab in patients with neovascular age-related macular degeneration (nAMD), macular edema secondary to retinal vein occlusion (RVO) and diabetic macular edema (DME). Methods: A prospective, single-centre study will be performed containing 3 sub-studies according to each study population: nAMD, macular edem...

The Psychobiological Effects of Participation in a One-Month Insight Meditation Retreat

The purpose of this study was to examine how participation in a 1 month intensive Insight (vipassana) Meditation retreat (a) affects biological markers of cellular aging, social affiliation, and inflammation, which are important for physical health, longevity, and behavior, and (b) to relate observed biological changes to baseline levels and changes in psychological traits, which may underlie improvements in personal adaptive functioning.

Optimal Duration of Clopidogrel in Second-Generation Drug-Eluting Stents

Investigators try to assess the safety of 6-months or 12-months maintenance of dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT, aspirin + clopidogrel) in patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention using the Zotarolimus-eluting, Resolute Integrity™ stent (Medtronic Vascular Inc, Santa Rosa, CA) or the BioMatrix™ stent (Biosensors.

Diacutaneous Fibrolysis, Effects on Tension Type Headache

Tension Type Headache (TTH) is a frecuent type of headache disorder (about 1 person in 5 worldwide). Individuals with TTH typically present pericraneal tenderness and an increased cervical muscle tone. The most common treatment in primary care consists mainly on analgesic medication. However, different techniques of manual therapy have been shown to be effective in the treatment of these patients. Diacutaneous fibrolysis shows clinical benefits in relieving symptoms of t...

Whole Body Vibration Therapy in Children With Spinal Muscular Atrophy

Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) are one of the common physical disabilities in childhood. For SMA, progressive muscle weakness and early fatigue hamper the mobility of the sufferers. Osteopenia is common for this population group due to poor bone growth and muscle disuse. As a result, non-traumatic related fractures and bone pain are common. Recently, whole body vibration therapy (WBVT) has been proven to improve bone health and muscle function in healthy adults and post-menopaus...

Aim 2: To collect data on DCT's association with clinical/health outcomes as measured ...

Two-Site Compression POINt-OF-CARE Ultrasonography for DVT

Introduction Undiagnosed deep vein thrombosis (DVT) can lead to significant morbidity and mortality, including death from DVT-associated massive pulmonary embolism (PE). While several validated clinical prediction rules, blood test and imaging modalities exist to investigate a potential DVT, there is currently a lack of rapid, accessible and reliable methods to exclude the possibility of DVT without resorting to formal venous duplex scanning. Currently, the use in the E...
