Intraprostatic Androgenicity in Relation to Circulating Levels of Hormones and Polymorphisms of Hormone-Related Genes: A Methodologic Study

Although compelling evidence from laboratory studies suggests that androgens play a major role in prostate carcinogenesis, epidemiologic studies in humans (almost exclusively serologic studies) have been unable to confirm the hormonal hypothesis. The major limitation in these serologic studies may stem from difficulty in measuring androgenicity directly at the target site - the prostate. If circulating hormones do not reflect intraprostatic hormone levels or androgenicity, it...

Research Study of Treatment for Winter Depression With Different Colors of Light

The specific aim of this study is to test the hypothesis that light stimuli concentrated around 468 nm will evoke a significantly stronger therapeutic response in SAD patients compared to light stimuli concentrated around 654 nm at an equal photon density. The secondary objective of this study is to determine the efficacy of different colors and levels of light in order to optimize therapeutic benefit, while also minimizing side effects and maintaining safety of light exposure...

Subsequent coh orts of patients will receive dose escalations, and possible changes in dosing s chedule, based on tolerability and pharmacokinetic knowledge gained from prior ...

Tolerability of MK0524A Versus Niacin Extended-Release (0524A-054)

This is a 16-week clinical trial in lipid clinic patients for whom niacin therapy is appropriate to evaluate the tolerability of MK0524A versus niacin extended-release. There will be 6 scheduled clinic visits and 2 treatment groups.

DZX Mediated Insulin Suppression in Obese Men

The purpose of this study is to determine whether there is an additive effect of metformine on the weight reduction of obese hyperinsulinemic men who are treated with diazoxide.

PRCT: Ligament Reconstruction & Tendon Interposition With a Joint Spacer for Trapeziometacarpal OA

The purpose of this study is to compare the effectiveness of two types of operative treatment in terms of resolving symptoms, improving function and also with respect to x-ray outcomes. The hypothesis is that insertion of a spacer will provide similar symptomatic relief, but improved long term gains in key and tripod pinch strength when compared to LRTI.

The Effect of Intravenous Lidocaine on Allodynia

The purpose of this study is to study if lidocaine, given intravenously, reduces pain.

A Study of MK0777 Gel Extrusion Module (GEM) in the Treatment of Outpatients With Generalized Anxiety Disorder (0777-019)

The study will look at the effectiveness of MK0777 in patients with Generalized Anxiety Disorder.

Digital Mammography: Computer-Aided Breast Cancer Diagnosis

The purpose of this study is to develop computer programs to assist radiologists in finding breast cancer on mammograms and to compare the computer's accuracy of detecting cancers on direct digital and film mammograms.

A Study to Evaluate Safety and Tolerability in Patients With Metastatic Breast Cancer Receiving Treatment With Caelyx (Study P04878)(COMPLETED)

This is a study to evaluate the safety and tolerability of Caelyx used for the treatment of metastatic breast cancer (MBC), focusing on infusion reaction and palmar-plantar erythrodysesthesia (PPE).

Vitamin E Pharmacokinetics and Biomarkers in Normal and Obese Women

Background: - Vitamin E is an antioxidant that reduces the damaging effects of oxygen in the body. Most American men (90%) and women (96%) do not get enough vitamin E from their diets; however, the amount of vitamin E needed by the body has been studied only in men, not women. In addition, it is unknown whether another antioxidant, vitamin C, helps vitamin E in protecting the body. Because vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin, how much body fat ...

MTD, Safety, and Efficacy of Pomalidomide (CC-4047) Alone or With Low-dose Dexamethasone in Patients With Relapsed and Refractory Multiple Myeloma

The purpose of this study is to determine the maximum tolerated dose and effectiveness of the study drug (CC-4047) Alone Or in Combination With Low-dose Dexamethasone as treatment for patients with relapsed and refractory multiple myeloma

Pilot Study of IFN α2b for Melanoma Patients

The presence of malignant cells in lymph nodes is a critical parameter in the staging of melanoma cancer patients. Assessment of lymph nodes is currently done by histopathology alone. The long-term survival of melanoma cancer patients who have Stage IB disease (no known lymph node involvement with a tumor greater than 2 cm) is lower than patients who are Stage IA (no known lymph node involvement with a tumor less than 2 cm). Likewise, the survival rates of patients who are ju...

Renal Denervation in Patients With Uncontrolled Hypertension (Symplicity HTN-2)

An international, multi-center, prospective, randomized, controlled study of the safety and effectiveness of renal denervation in patients with uncontrolled hypertension.

Large Abdominal Hernia Repair With SurgiMend 3.0

The rate of hernia recurrence at one year following repair of a large abdominal hernia with a biologic mesh is high, ranging from 30% to 100%, with a reported historic average rate of 40%. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the rate of hernia recurrence at one year following repair with SurgiMend 3.0, an FDA-cleared novel biologic mesh, the hypothesis being that such rate will be less than 20% at one year, representing a 50% reduction over the historic rate of 40%.

Study of IN.PACT Amphirion™ Drug Eluting Balloon vs. Standard PTA for the Treatment of Below the Knee Critical Limb Ischemia

This is a prospective, multi-center, randomized (2:1) trial of symptomatic patients with critical limb ischemia (CLI) secondary to atherosclerotic lesions (stenotic or occluded) of the infrapopliteal vessels.

Patients will be followed with pre-study, post-study, and follow-up ev...

Effects of Ethanol on Intestinal Permeability and Integrity

Alcohol consumption is a major health problem worldwide. It affects all systems of the body especially the gastrointestinal tract. Acute or chronic alcohol consumption has deleterious effects on the gastrointestinal mucosa vary from increased intestinal permeability, structural changes to sever destruction of the epithelial lining cells. Human data are still limited and most of the studies were performed in chronic alcohol abusers. The investigators hypothesize that moderate a...

The Healthy Elderly Longevity Cohort

With the completion of the human genome project, investigators can now explore new questions in human biology. Previously human genetics focused on highly penetrant, Mendelian traits; however, now rare and common variants can be discovered that affect "common" diseases that have multi-gene architecture with variable penetrance such as breast cancer, diabetes mellitus, and coronary artery disease. This change took place because investigators now have the tools to illuminate th...
