Adaptive reasoning and problem-solving are critical skills that allow for accurate decisions to be made based on varying levels of information. In many situations these decisions must be made and communicated under stressful, time-sensitive conditions. In such contexts, an ability to apply inductive and deductive reasoning to complex, ambiguous, and/or novel problems is critical. The objective of the INSIGHT project is to establish a comprehensive and rigorous brain training pr...
Primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC) is a chronic inflammatory disease of the biliary ducts in the liver resulting in destruction and fibrosis. PSC is associated with increased serum levels of hyaluronan (HA), an extracellular matrix polymer known to drive inflammation in multiple other tissues and disease models. Inhibition of HA synthesis with oral hymecromone has been shown to prevent progression of autoimmunity in several animal models. This is a prospective, open-label, si...

The lower may be a partial or full edentulous mandibular arch that may be restored with a stable complete, partial or implant supported denture.
In layperson's language state the purpose of the study in 3-5 sentences. Previous research has demonstrated that intimate partners can positively influence those with PTSD to seek treatment. We have preliminary evidence to demonstrate that mobile apps, such as PTSD Coach can be helpful for those with PTSD, and the current study will provide Veterans with PTSD and their partners with a mobile app designed to promote engagement with evidence-based treatments for PTSD. The purpos...
This is a single center, single arm unblinded prospective study of the safety of pancreatic stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) in patients with unresectable, borderline resectable, or recurrent pancreatic/periampullary cancers who have previously undergone treatment with chemotherapy, surgery, photodynamic therapy, conventionally fractionated radiation treatment, or any combination of these therapies. Primary Objective • To estimate rates of acute (within 3 mo...
This is an open-label, randomized, 2-period crossover study, to evaluate the pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, safety and tolerability of warfarin in combination with Tamiflu (oseltamivir) in participants stabilized on warfarin. Participants will be randomized to receive either Treatment A followed by Treatment B (AB) or Treatment B followed by Treatment A (BA) in 2 treatment periods. Treatment A includes participant's usual warfarin therapy, and Treatment B includes warfarin...
The primary purpose of this study is to determine whether giving injections of anakinra is a safe and well tolerated treatment to give as an adjunct to standard prescribed treatment for patients who are admitted to the hospital with signs of severe inflammation (macrophage activation syndrome) that is potentially life-threatening. Anakinra is a commercially available product (Kineret™) approved for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis; it is a replica of a naturally occurrin...
This study aims to: 1. identify which single item or combination of two items perform best in identifying problematic infant night wakings and 2. describe current practices by pediatricians in addressing problematic infant night wakings. Using a novel computer decision support system in several primary care clinics, caregivers accompanying their child to a health visit will be randomly assigned to receive two of five items assessing night wakings an...
Phase I: The primary purpose of this study phase is to determine the best dose also referred to as the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of Selinexor when used in combination with high-dose melphalan as a conditioning regimen for hematopoietic cell transplant. Phase II: The primary purpose of this study phase is to assess the complete response (CR) conversion rate.
Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) is the commonest form of acute flaccid paralysis and the incidence is high in low-income countries. In Bangladesh, most GBS patients are poor. Therefore patients cannot afford expensive specific treatments like intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIg) or plasmapheresis (PE) in part explaining the high mortality and disability compared to treated patients in high-income countries. Added difficulty in traditional PE is its unavailability and specialized de...
The purpose of this study is to identify genetic or other factors in the subjects blood that may predispose them to getting a particular disease or tell researchers how the disease will behave, for example how fast it will progress or what areas of the body might be affected. A second goal is to relate such factors to how such a condition affects the subjects clinically as well as how it affects the electrical functions of nerves and muscles.
Retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) is a feared complication of premature birth. If discovered in time, the disease can be treated, and impaired vision or blindness can be reduced. Premature infants are therefore examined regularly after birth. However, the examination is painful and stressful for the infant. Painful experiences might lead to a pathological stress response later in life and should therefore be prevented. In this study skin-to-skin contact with a parent is tested ...
The aim of this project is to test whether giving parents advice about book reading is effective in promoting language learning for infants from a range of socio-economic backgrounds.
Optiflow high flow nasal cannula (HFNC) oxygenation is a technique to provide oxygen to patients when they are paralysed under general anaesthesia. Their lungs are not moving, but the high flow allows oxygen to travel into their lungs. This is called 'apnoeic ventilation'. The investigators will be using this for patients undergoing surgery for their throat.
Among patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD), there is association between anemia and increased chance of mortality mainly because of cardiovascular diseases and stroke, risk of hospitalization, and death prevalence in predialysis patients. Vitamin C plays an important role in iron metabolism and application for red blood cell formation. Infusion of ascorbate supplementation can reduce oxidative stress among hemodialysis patients. This study aimed to assess the effect of vi...
Novel emerging therapies for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) require a deeper understanding of DMD natural history. This study aim to assess the natural history of DMD through a composite assessment tool capable of capturing disease progression linking ambulant and non-ambulant phases of the disease.
Asthma is the most common chronic disease of children. A short (3-5 day) course of a short-acting steroid such as Prednisone or Prednisolone has long been the standard of care for asthma exacerbation. Dexamethasone efficacy in asthma exacerbation has been studied in the outpatient setting and was found to be as effective as Prednisone. Dexamethasone has the advantage of shorter course, more compliance, and more tolerable. This has led many emergency departments to provide a 1-2...
