Decitabine and Bortezomib in Treating Patients With Acute Myeloid Leukemia

This phase I trial is studying the side effects and best dose of bortezomib when given together with decitabine in treating patients with acute myeloid leukemia. Bortezomib may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as decitabine, work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Giving bortezomib together with decitabine may...

The Use of Dual Chamber ICD With Special Programmed Features to Lower the Risk of Inappropriate Shock

Evaluation of Remote Patient Monitoring.

Nottingham Primary Care Trust has launched telemonitoring to support: independent living and self-management ability of people with congestive heart failure (CHF), chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and co-morbidities; and reduce the health care utilisation associated with these patients, including the number of hospitalisations, GP visits and community matron and specialist community nurse home visits. The Multidisciplinary Assessment of Technology Centre for Healt...

An Open Label Pharmacokinetic, Safety And Efficacy Study Of Maraviroc In Combination With Background Therapy For The Treatment Of HIV-1 Infected, CCR5 -Tropic Children

The primary purpose of this study is to determine the pharmacokinetic properties (what the body does to maraviroc) and to determine a suitable dosing schedule of maraviroc in HIV-1 infected children and adolescents. This study will also determine whether maraviroc is safe to use in children and adolescents.

Randomized Study of Ixabepilone Versus Observation in Patients With Significant Residual Disease

The goal of this clinical research study is to learn about certain genes and proteins in tumors that do not respond well to treatment. These features will be compared with the status of the disease after surgery for breast cancer that does not express the HER2 protein, when patients either receive or do not receive ixabepilone. The safety of ixabepilone in this group of patients will also be studied.

Functional Gastrointestinal Disorder Screening Program - A Randomized Controlled Trial

Background: Functional gastrointestinal disorder (FGID) is the most common gastrointestinal disease in daily clinical practice. The disease is symptomatic but has no identifiable cause by standard diagnostic tests such as endoscopy. It is characterized by its frequent relapses and thus the disease causes a significant level of stress and anxiety to patients. Due to the complexity and chronicity of the disease, it is believed that appropriate counseling on the nature an...
