The purpose of this study is to assess the safety, tolerability, pharmacodynamics, anti-tumor activity, and pharmacokinetics of BMS-986179 when combined with nivolumab in patients with advanced cancer.
The purpose of this study is to compare the risk of major bleeding event among nonvalvular atrial fibrillation patients treated with warfarin, apixaban, dabigatran and rivaroxaban.
Anticalins® are engineered human proteins that are able to bind specific target molecules. The Anticalin PRS-080#022-DP to be investigated in this study is directed against hepcidin and is intended for the treatment of anemia of chronic disease. This Phase Ib study shall investigate the safety, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of a single administration of PRS-080#022-DP in anemic stage 5 chronic kidney disease patients undergoing hemodialysis.
Adjuvant Gemcitabine Versus Gemcitabine With Chemoradiation in Pancreatic Adenocarcinoma With R1 Resection and/or Positive Lymph Nodes after curative resection.
A multicenter, prospective, controlled, randomized (moderate hypothermia 33°C≤ T°C ≤34°C) during 24 hours ± 1h versus normothermia (37°C ± 0.3 °C), comparative open trial will be conducted on two parallel groups of patients with cardiogenic shock treated with VA-ECMO. The HYPO-ECMO trial will test the hypothesis that moderate hypothermia (temperature between 33°C≤ T°C ≤34°C) associated with VA-ECMO support results in a reduction in 30-day mortality in compari...
The purpose of this study is to understand how biochemical markers in blood, balance disturbances, and cognitive performance are related to brain blood flow changes after a concussion.
The objective of the study is to compare the pharmacokinetics profiles and safety of Evogliptin in patients wit hepatic dysfunction versus healthy volunteers after single oral dose of Evogliptin
Problem: Training is an important part of the treatment and rehabilitation of patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) because training can increase the patient's muscle mass, lead to higher physical performance, reduce difficulties in breathing and hereby increase the patients' capacity to make use of the medical treatment. Rehabilitation is provided by hospitals training centres/outpatient clinics. However, the transport is too tiring for the patient...
The aim of this study is to externally validate a new emergency department overcrowding estimation tool (SONET) developed at John Peter Smith Health Network (JPS).
The Problem: Obesity is one of the leading causes of chronic disease and death. The efficacy of diet and exercise to sustain weight loss over the long term is weak. While pharmacotherapy is more effective than behavior intervention in maintaining weight loss the effects are often not sufficient to achieve optimal health benefits. Current drug treatments may be sub-optimal because they do not directly target the rewarding value of food, drive to eat, food liking, and impulsivity...
Exercise training for older hemodialysis patients can greatly improve many of the negative effects and poor health outcomes associated with end-stage kidney disease. Exercise has yet to be incorporated effectively and systematically into routine care. Exercise programs remain rare. When such programs are implemented, their participation rates vary, and they neglect home and community-based activities, as well as the involvement of family caregivers to support and reinforce exer...
This study is carried out to explore the short-term and long-term efficacy of the functional collagen scaffold in guiding laryngeal soft tissue regeneration.
In this study, peptide receptor radionuclide therapy (PRRT) with 177Lu-Octreotate (LuTate) will be personalized, i.e. administered activity of LuTate will be tailored for each patient to maximize absorbed radiation dose to tumor, while limiting that to healthy organs. The purpose of this study is to: - Assess the objective (radiological), symptomatic and biochemical response rates following an induction course of personalized PRRT; - Assess the overall, the ...
Repeated exposure to simulated cases has been shown to improve performance, but repeating the same scenario may impair the ability of learners to transfer their knowledge and skills to slightly different situations. The objective of this study is to compare the use of repeated versus varied simulation cases for teaching the management of pediatric asthma exacerbation to 3rd year medical students.
There are different definitions of stress according to each discipline. In psychology, it is defined according to the individual's ability to adapt. The medical approach focuses on the reactions of the body to stress situations. And the organizational approach seeks to define in terms of sources of stress situations. According to a national interprofessional agreement on stress at work in 2008 is defined as a condition that occurs when there is an imbalance between the percepti...
This pilot study compares the effect of working memory training and neurofeedback in non-medicated children age 7 to 13 years with ADHD. Half of the participants will receive working memory training, while the other half will receive neurofeedback.
This study aims to evaluate the reliability of measurements of arterial stiffness (pulse wave velocity (PWV), pulse wave contour analysis (PWA), central augmentation index (AIx) and pulse pressure (PP)) in atrial fibrillation (AF). For this purpose 30 AF patients scheduled for electrical cardioversion will be included. PWV and PWA measurements will be carried out before and after cardioversion.
This is a phase II study to determine the immunogenicity and efficacy of a vaccine composed of tumor associated long synthetic peptides mixed with Montanide ISA-51 VG administered with polyinosinic-polycytidylic acid - poly-L-lysine carboxymethylcellulose (Poly-ICLC) and bevacizumab in adults with recurrent glioblastoma.
Biological markers of depressive states have been studied, but their usefulness to predict the therapeutic response is unknown. This issue is major in all depressive states which have not remitted after several lines of treatment. rTMS (repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation) is a non-pharmacological alternative in the treatment of depression, but its effects on cerebral functioning are not known in episodes which have resist to conventional treatments. The investigators ...
Lung cancer is one of the leading causes of cancer-related death in Taiwan. Early diagnosis of lung cancer may improve cancer survival. Low-dose computed tomography (LDCT) was thought to be the best screening tool for lung cancer. However, there is growing concerns about radiation exposure, high cost, and high rate of false-positive screening result. Epidemiologic studies from western countries showed that cigarette smoking is the major cause of lung cancer, and other risk fact...
200 patients took part in the questionnaire and were examined using the PSI. Thereafter the participants were divided into two groups, non-periodontitis persons (group 1; PSI 0-2) and periodontitis persons (group 2; PSI 3-4). The answers were evaluated using a point system ranging from 0 to 8, based on known periodontal risk factors and their assumed degree of influence. Receiver-operating characteristic (ROC) curve analyses were applied to examine the overall discriminatory po...
This is a platelet transfusion study. The purpose of this study is to measure the life span and quality of platelets preserved in an additive solution and stored in a refrigerator. Participants will give platelets by apheresis. Platelets will be stored for 3 -20 days. A small portion of the subject's own stored platelets will be tagged with a radioactive isotope and infused back into the participant. This will enable us to track how many transfused platelets survive after stora...
Breast cancer treatment often results in long-term arm morbidity. A prospective surveillance model with arm assessment pre-surgery followed by ongoing surveillance and targeted physiotherapy treatment after breast cancer surgery may improve early detection and management of arm morbidity. This study aims to determine the effect of prospective surveillance to target physiotherapy on the prevalence of arm morbidity in the surveillance group compared to control group at 12-months ...
To verify that platelets collected on the Trima Accel system with Version 7.0 software enhancements and stored in platelet additive solution (PAS) meet the FDA requirements for leukoreduction (< 5.0 × 10^6 residual white blood cells [WBC] per transfusable unit).
There are three different phases to this study: 1. Screening phase to determine if you are eligible to participate in the study. 2. Study phase, which will entail diet and activity, exercise and then finally self monitoring goals. 3. End of treatment phase where you will be asked to complete questionnaires.
