A total of 90 stroke patients will be recruited. Each patient will receive three times evaluation, including perception tests, motor function test, daily living ...

Virtual Temporal Bone Surgery: Defining and Translating Metrics

The goal of this project is to improve the efficiency of training and assessment of technical skill in surgical treatment of otologic disease. Through previous funding, we have developed an intuitive virtual simulation environment to be used as an adjuvant for teaching temporal bone surgery. Using direct-volume visualization techniques with integrated stereoscopic display, haptic (force) feedback, and aural simulation, we have achieved a straightforward, low-cost learning envir...

3-Year Observational Virology Follow-up Study in Subjects Who Participated in Studies of Idenix Anti-HCV, Direct Acting Antivirals

All subjects in this study have previously been in an Idenix HCV study and received study drug for 3 consecutive days. Subjects who had received placebo in a previous Idenix study will not be enrolled in this study. In this study, researchers will try to find answers to these questions: - How much (if any) hepatitis C virus is in your blood after stopping your Idenix study drug? - Is your hepatitis C virus possibly resistant to treatment with the Idenix stu...

Safety and Immunogenicity of Different Dosing Schedules of GlaxoSmithkline (GSK) Biologicals' Herpes Zoster (HZ) Vaccine in Adults 50 Years of Age or Older

The purpose of this study is to assess the safety and immunogenicity of the GSK Biologicals' HZ vaccine 1437173A administered on either a 0,2-; 0,6- or 0,12-month schedule in adults aged 50 years or above, as the immunogenicity of the HZ vaccine administered at intervals longer than two months is not known.

Impact of Bloodletting on Iron Metabolism in Type 1 Hemochromatosis

Hemochromatosis type 1 is one of the most frequent genetic disease since the genetic predisposition (homozygosity for the C282Y mutation of the HFE gene) is encountered in about 3/1000 white subjects (5/1000 in Brittany, France). For the half of these predisposed subjects, the phenotypic expression of the disease needs a treatment. This treatment is based upon repeated bloodletting which is generally considered as simple, safe and effective. Nevertheless, it is still q...

Plaque Psoriasis Study in Pediatric Subjects

The purpose of this study is to compare the safety, efficacy and calcium metabolism of up to 8 weeks of treatment with calcitriol 3 mcg/g ointment versus its vehicle, when used twice daily, without occlusion, to treat children aged 2 to 12 years, with plaque psoriasis.

Early ART Initiation Among HIV-positive Pregnant Women in Central Mozambique

The overall objective of the study is to develop and test a pilot intervention in central Mozambique to implement the new WHO "Option B+" guidelines that seek to increase the proportion of HIV-positive pregnant women in six antenatal care clinics who start antiretroviral therapy (ART) prior to delivery, and are retained in care after 90- days.

A Study to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of Amlodipine Besylate and Candesartan Cilexetil in Essential Hypertension Patient Who Are Not Adequately Controlled With Amlodipine Besylate Monotherapy

Compare the safety and efficacy of amlodipine besylate and candesartan cilexetil combination therapy on patients of essential hypertension who are not properly controlled by amlodipine besylate monotherapy.

Neovascular Morphology and Persistent Disease Activity Among Patients With NV AMD

Neovascular Age-Related Macular Degeneration (NV AMD) remains the leading cause of vision loss among people over 65. Intravitreal injections with drugs that block VEGF have revolutionized treatment of NV AMD. However, less than 40% of treated patients have clinically significant imporovement in vision. In this study, we will determine the relative frequency of neovascular subtypes in two groups: 1) a representative, treatment-naive NV AMD patient population, and 2) a populati...

Does Oral Acetaminophen Lower Intraocular Pressure?

- Lowering intraocular pressure is the only proven treatment for glaucoma. Medications, almost always in the form of eye drops, are a mainstay for lowering intraocular pressure. Eye drops have the disadvantage of being difficult to administer and can have adverse effects on the surface of the eye and the surrounding tissues. Lowering intraocular pressure can be accomplished with oral carbonic anhydrase inhibitors, but the many systemic side effects of these agents relegates t...

CyBorD vs. PAD in the Treatment of Newly Diagnosed Multiple Myeloma

Bortezomib-based triple-drug combination has greatly improved the response rate of multiple myeloma patients. Bortezomib,doxorubicin,and dexamethasone (PAD) is commonly used in clinical practice.Recent studies have found that cyclophosphamide, bortezomib,and dexamethasone (CyBorD)seems better than PAD in efficacy. However, there is no randomized phase 3 trial comparing these two regimens in the treatment of newly diagnosed multiple myeloma patients.In this study, the investigat...

Echographic Measurement of Skin Thickness

To optimize a medical device for intradermal injection, knowledge concerning the thickness of epidermis and dermis at the proximal forearm is required. Since scientific knowledge is lacking, the investigators will examine the skin thickness (epidermis and dermis) of adults using imaging technology (High Frequency Ultrasound). The investigators hypothesize that they are able to correlate the thickness of the (epi)dermis to a specific combination of parameters age, gender, and BM...

Race And CPAP Effectiveness

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a major public health problem in the U.S. and more than 35% of Veterans are at high risk for OSA. OSA is associated with progression of hypertension, an important health problem in Veterans. African Americans with OSA are at increased risk for poorly controlled hypertension and its health consequences. Implementing a care plan to increase the percentage of Veterans in whom blood pressure goals are achieved has been prioritized by Veterans Admini...

Enzalutamide in Patients With Androgen Receptor Positive (AR+) Ovarian, Primary Peritoneal or Fallopian Tube Cancer and One, Two or Three Prior Therapies

This is a Phase II study. The purpose of this study is to find out what effects, good and/or bad enzalutamide has on the patient and the cancer. All patients who enter the study will be closely monitored for side-effects. If multiple patients develop significant side effects from enzalutamide, the study may be stopped early. Enzalutamide is an androgen-receptor inhibitor, which means that it blocks the activity of the hormone testosterone. In ovarian, fallopian tube, and prima...
