"Palivizumab Therapy for RSV-bronchiolitis"

There is a growing body of literature suggesting that monoclonal antibody could be efficacious in infants with RSV-bronchiolitis, well tolerated with no or clinically insignificant adverse effects. The investigators hypothesize that a single dose of IV palivizumab 15mg/kg early in diagnosed infants ≤3 months old with RSV bronchiolitis will decrease the length of hospitalization, as compared to placebo. Our hypothesis to treat RSV early or before need of ICU, so patient...

This study will examine and compare laboratory findings in skin biopsies from people with Lyme disease and from healthy normal volunteers to try to better understand the infection. Healthy volunteers and people with untreated erythema migrans rash w...

A Study of BioEnterics® Intragastric Balloon (BIB®) System to Assist in the Weight Management of Obese Subjects

Safety and effectiveness of the BIB® System in conjunction with a behavior modification program compared to the behavior modification program alone for weight loss in obese subjects.

Extension Trial of Deforolimus in Patients With Advanced Cancer (8669-038)

To describe the long-term safety of deforolimus in patients for whom a clinical benefit has been established in a prior parent trial with deforolimus and/or in those who remain in long-term follow-up.

Examining Developmental Changes in Heart Contractions of Children With Congenital Heart Defects

Children who are born with heart defects undergo surgery when they are infants to correct the defects. However, many treatments that are used in pediatric heart patients were originally developed for adults and may not be the best option for children. This study will analyze tissue samples from newborns and infants undergoing surgery for heart defects to learn more about how a child's heart develops during the first year of life. This information may help to identify possible t...

ERG/EOG Study in AMD Patients Treated With Ranibizumab

This is an open-label study assessing electrophysiologic testing of the retina with Electoretinogram (ERG) /Electrooculogram (EOG) tests in patients with exudative age-related macular degeneration (AMD). The standard FDA-approved treatment for wet AMD is ranibizumab (Lucentis). This study focuses on the ERG and EOG tests to evaluate retinal responses to ranibizumab treatment in AMD.

PF-00299804 in Adult Patients With Relapsed/Recurrent Glioblastoma

There are three arms to this study (A, B and C) The purpose of this research study during Arm A is to see how much of PF-00299804 gets into the brain tumor. For many brain tumors, one reason that chemotherapy drugs might not be effective is that the drug may not be able to get into the brain tumor and kill the cancer cells. We will determine how much PF-00299804 gets into the brain tumor by obtaining a sample of the tumor from the surgery that the participant already has sche...

RAD001 in Pheochromocytoma or Nonfunctioning Carcinoid

- According to Martin F et al, AKT is highly phosphorylated in phenochromocytoma but not in benign adrenocortical tumors. - In nonfunctioning carcinoid, the PI3K/AKT/mTOR pathway is activated. - Although mTOR is clearly an attractive therapeutic target in tumor, no clinical study on mTOR inhibition by RAD001 have been conducted in pheochromocytoma or extra-adrenal paraganglioma or non-functioning carcinoid. - So we design this phase II study of...
