The investigators are studying the ability of PET/MR imaging (using the PET tracer [18F]FDG) to objectively identify and characterize pain generators in patients suffering from chronic pain.
This study aims to investigate whether a novel meal service FoodforCare (FfC), comprising 6-protein-rich meals a day following proactive advice from a nutritional assistant, improves dietary intake and patient satisfaction, compared to the traditional 3-meals a day service (TMS).
Graves orbitopathy (GO) is an inflammatory eye disease associated in 95% of patients with Graves' hyperthyroidism (GH), in ~3-4% with hypothyroid autoimmune thyroiditis, and in ~1-2% with thyroid autoimmunity in the absence of thyroid dysfunction, the former known as euthyroid GO. The pathogenesis of GO is autoimmune, with the TSH-receptor being considered the major autoantigen, thereby establishing a pathogenetic link between the thyroid and orbital tissue. Thus, TSH-receptor ...
To compare the postoperative analgesic effect and the intensity of motor block in different concentration ropivacaine plus fentanyl when used epidurally with a patient-controlled analgesia device after Cesarean delivery.
Primary Objective: • To describe postoperative static pain scores on the Pain Visual Analog Scale at Day 1 in a population of women undergoing bilateral mastectomy followed by immediate, bilateral pre-pectoral tissue expander breast reconstruction reinforced with AlloDerm® coverage. Secondary Objectives: - To describe postoperative static and dynamic pain scores on the Pain Visual Analog Scale and Brief Pain Inventory—Short Form at Day 1-60 after tissue ex...
Cerebral Palsy (CP) is the most common cause of physical disability in children, is a non-progressive neurological impairment resulting from an injury in the developing brain and causing various problems related to sensory, perception, cognition, and movement. This problems leads activity and participation levels of the children with CP. In the literature various assessment tools developed for assessing participation. Assessment of Life Habits (LIFE-H) questionnaire is one of t...
This study is a collaboration between the Centre of Human & Aerospace Physiological Sciences (CHAPS) and the Sleep and Brain Plasticity Centre (Department of Neuroimaging) at King's College London and the Sleep Disorders Centre at Guy's Hospital.The main purpose of the study is to evaluate the effects of a 7 day unloading period (simulating micro gravity) on muscle mass using three independent methods; two scanning techniques (magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and dual x-ray ab...
A prospective, single arm, multi-center clinical study to evaluate the safety and performance of the SRS (Lyra Medical) vaginal mesh in POP patients
Chronic pain is a worldwide health problem due to its high prevalence and its difficult management with a significant impact on quality of life. Pain and addiction co-occur frequently. Indeed, the prevalence of addiction in patients with chronic non-cancer pain may affect from 0% to 50% of patients (Højsted et al 2010). This large variability in the estimation of addiction prevalence in chronic non-cancer pain patients is at least partly due to a lack of standardization of the...
This study follows a First-In-Human dose-escalation study of MMV390048 (5 to 120 mg MMV390048 powder-in-bottle formulation), a formulation bioavailability study to establish suitable tablet formulation, and a two-part dose-escalation (40 to 120 mg of MMV390048) / induced blood stage malaria (ISBM) challenge study with the new tablet formulation. After identification of the predicted efficacious MMV390048 plasma concentrations in the IBSM model, the current study will evaluate t...
Type 2 Diabetes (T2D) in obese youth is often preceded by a prediabetic state called: Impaired Glucose Tolerance (IGT), which is associated with a pre-existing defect in insulin secretion. This study intends to determine if genetic factors are associated with defects in insulin secretion, the incretin system and hepatic insulin resistance in obese adolescents. The long-term goal of this study is to generate information on both the genetics as well as the pathophysiology of Type...
This study aims to determine whether early initiation of temporary nerve block therapy improves patient satisfaction, decreases patient pain and discomfort, decreases the use of dangerous medications such as narcotics, and frees hospital resources. Hand injuries, such as blast injuries from fireworks, can be very painful. In the emergency department, providers generally use narcotic pain medications to control pain, but these have significant side effects. It is possible that t...
This study aims at assessing the effectiveness of combined suprascapular nerve block (SSNB), infraclavicular brachial plexus block (ICB) and supraclavicular nerve block (SCNB) as surgical anesthesia for patients scheduled for arthroscopic shoulder surgery. The secondary objective is to test the hypothesis that SSNB-ICB-SCNB combination could spare the phrenic nerve.
The study has 2 phases: - The Retrospective Phase (50 patients were diagnosed to have sepsis according to our definition and criteria and 30 patients as a controlled cases ) - The Prospective Phase (600 patients who will be admitted and monitored in ICU in order to get at least 30 sepsis cases, according to our definition and criteria). Measurements will be made from the forehead using the TTP's biocompatible sensor Unit that will be attached to the ski...
Raltegravir (RAL) is a very effective antiretroviral drug with a favorable long term tolerability. RAL offers many advantages such as lack of drug-drug interactions, a good safety profile particularly on lipids, inflammation and bone parameters. Ral can be an very interesting for patient with comorbidities and comedications, intolerance or toxicities with their current ARV treatment. However its current formulation of one tablet of 400mg twice a day coul not suit many patients....
The purpose of this study is to determine if routine consumption of high antioxidant cacao can have an effect on the behaviors of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. This is proposed as children with Autism Spectrum Disorder have elevated oxidative stress markers, such as, free radicals making them highly vulnerable to oxidative damage. Thus, it is proposed that foods high in antioxidant activity can offer protection against oxidative stress and thus impact behaviors.
A Study to Evaluate Safety and Effectiveness of Nivolumab in Combination With Ipilimumab in Chinese Patients With Previously Treated Late-Stage Cancer
The purpose of this study is to investigate the safety of patients in Asia with Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC)who are treated with Nivolumab monotherapy as a second line or third line treatment.
Before going off to sleep patients are given oxygen to saturate blood with oxygen to extend time before a decrease in the level of oxygen in the blood occurs. During this period, obese patients have a faster decrease in the level of oxygen in their blood. This study uses a device called "high-flow nasal cannula" (HFNC), which delivers humidified high-flow oxygen through 2 small plastic tubes placed just inside nostrils. In the intensive care unit settings this device has been u...
The aim of our research was to define both in vivo and in vitro whether and to what extent an high-impact exercise program would affect bone cell turnover and improve the QoL in osteopenic postmenopausal women.
A correlation between the bispectral index values and electroencephalographic patterns at the loss of consciousness (LOC) when using propofol in elderly patients, has not been determined. Our aim is to describe the BIS values and the power of the alpha band in the electroencephalography in elderly patients, at the LOC moment.
The objective of the present study is to assess blood coagulation disorders in patients with Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension and Chronic Thromboembolic Pulmonary Hypertension. The investigators aim to evaluate any possible coagulation abnormalities related to the patients' primary disease and any possible effects the pulmonary hypertension- specific therapy may have on hemostasis.
Our laboratory has discovered that ultrasound (US) imaging together with clinically approved microbubble ultrasound contrast agents can augment limb tissue perfusion. These observations have been made in mice with and without peripheral artery disease (PAD), and also in humans where high power contrast enhanced ultrasound (CEU) was used to measure perfusion but was found also to augment perfusion by almost 2-fold. The latter human studies were performed with ultrasound protocol...
