Background: While there is some evidence that increasing the range of healthier foods and drinks and/or decreasing the range of less healthy options may increase healthier choices, more work is needed to establish the reproducibility of any effect. The current study aims to investigate the impact of altering the availability of healthier and less healthy foods and cold beverages in hospital vending machines. Methods: An adapted multiple treatment reversal design will be used, ...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of CAR-T cell immunotherapy in treating with GD2 positive glioma patients.
The endothelial cell layer is responsible for the control of vascular homeostasis, a process mediated by vasoconstricting and vasodilatory substances. The principal endothelium-dependent vascular dilator is nitric oxide (NO), and the reduction of its synthesis or bioavailability is the main cause for the development of endothelial dysfunction. The use of photobiostimulation may be beneficial in several clinical situations. At the endothelial level, the photostimulatory action o...
Two-dimensional ultrasound guided approach does not guarantee first attempt success on internal jugular vein cannulation. New attachable device recently was developed for accurate needle insertion when ultrasound is used. Our randomized parallel simulation study will examine whether this device will improve the first attempt success rate when ultrasound guided internal jugular vein catheterization of simulated internal jugular vein.

Women with PCOS suffer from anovulation and, as a result, infertility. Efforts to clinically induce ovulation in these women using follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) administered subcutaneously seemingly requires prolonged administration compared to that of ovulatory women without PCOS. The apparent differing ovarian responsiveness to FSH between PCOS and normal women has not been carefully studied. We propose to address this issue by performing a dose-response study and examin...
People with stroke suffer from different impairments, including the ability to dual-tasking, increased arterial stiffness, and dysfunction of the autonomic nervous system. The decrement in dual-tasking performance has been found among stroke survivors, and the deterioration has been related to increased risk of fall in the population. No coherent result has been concluded from previous studies investigating the effect of different types of exercise training on enhancing dual-ta...
Despite substantial evidence supporting the use of dual anti-platelet therapy in patients with acute coronary syndrome, there remains major uncertainty regarding the optimal duration of therapy. Recent evidence suggests that shorter durations of dual anti-platelet therapy are superior because the avoidance of atherothrombotic events is counterbalanced by the greater risks of excess major bleeding with apparent increases in all-cause mortality with longer durations. The investig...
The primary purpose of this project was to implement Vitalize 360, a comprehensive assessment system and wellness coaching program for vulnerable, low income, community dwelling older adults, and to determine if this program is effective in promoting and sustaining self-management skills to increase well-being and functional health among this group. Designed specifically for community-dwelling older adults, Vitalize 360 provides a unique opportunity to guide elders in selecting...
The aim of this study is to test an intervention that has potential to improve acute care skills and confidence related to safe delivery and newborn care for mid-level health providers in Uganda by the development of a 'mobile' simulation package including scale-up materials based upon research evidence. In this randomized study investigators will compare the impact of a peer learning package on skills, knowledge and team work regarding newborn care among health workers in rura...
Vaccination is a cost-effective strategy for conferring immunity against a host of preventable diseases, however, rates of timely childhood vaccinations remain inadequate in resource-limited settings. We propose to evaluate the feasibility and efficacy of mHealth-assisted conditional cash transfers as a means of overcoming individual barriers to timely vaccinations. The study will form the basis for a pragmatic randomized controlled trial of the efficacy and cost-effectiveness ...
The trial will estimate post-operative pain management in elective surgical patients using the PMD-200 device. The device measures physiological parameters by placing a non-invasive sensor on a fingertip and displays an objective pain level in a 0-100 scale. The pain level will be estimated before surgery (baseline), after surgery and during administration of parenteral analgesia. Treatment and analgesia will be given according to clinical considerations and standard ward proto...
To determine safety and occlusion rates when second-generation hydrogel coils are used in the treatment of ruptured intracranial aneurysms.
Frequent pain and distress may affect infants' brain and neural development, and highlight the need for relieve pain interventions. Peripheral venous puncture procedures are an important source of preterm infants' pain and distress. Brain development is mainly created by infant sensory experience. It becomes important, therefore, to relieve preterm infants' pain and distress using multiple sensory integrations during peripheral venous puncture procedures.The proposed 2-year stu...
This study aims to evaluate safety in subjects with over moderately subacute and chronic atopic dermatitis after an intravenous injection of ADSTEM Inj. Since this is an observational study of patients participated in Phase 1 clinical trials, no drug is administered in this study.
Octreotide capsule is a novel, orally-administered formulation of the commercially-available injectable drug octreotide. In a recent phase 3 trial, oral octreotide capsules demonstrated maintenance of biochemical response up to 13 months in the majority of patients with acromegaly previously managed with somatostatin analog injections (reference below).
