The purpose of this study is to determine whether treatment of patients with anxiety according to the Collabri Model is more effective in reducing symptoms compared to treatment as usual (TAU)
Mitochondrial disorders are a group of inherited disorders causing malfunctional mitochondria. Mitochondria are found in every cell of the body, and the disorders therefore give symptoms from every tissue, especially those with high energy needs as the brain, heart and muscles. The disorders are highly disabling. The aim of the study is to investigate the relation between muscle strength and contractile cross sectional area (CCSA) in the leg of patients affected by mitochondri...
It has been reported that volatile anesthetics preconditioning mediates protection of organ via microRNA. We want to study on the effects of isoflurane preconditioning on expression of microRNA and mRNA in the specimens of internal mammary artery and ascending aorta.
Complete resection of neoplastic polyps is pivotal, as 8.8% to 50% of interval cancers may arise as a consequence of incomplete polypectomy. However, the ideal method to remove small colorectal polyps remains uncertain. The investigators designed a randomized controlled trial to assess whether injection-assisted cold snare polypectomy may be noninferior to EMR for the resection of small (6-10mm) colorectal polyps.
The purpose of this study was to investigate the mortality and macrovascular morbidity as well as the incidence of malignancies over time, in high-risk diabetic participants who previously received long-term treatment with either pioglitazone or placebo in combination with their usual medication for glycaemic management.
This Phase 2 open-label study will evaluate the safety, tolerability, and efficacy of BMN 190 intracerebroventricular (ICV) administration at 300mg every other week (qow) for a period of 96 weeks, in patients with CLN2. The study is designed to assess disease progression in siblings of children enrolled in the 190-201 study.
Participants (N=48) are patients with major depression in an outpatient clinic for affective disorders. Participants are assessed with clinical interview, polysomnographic evaluation and screening with Insomnia Severity Index (ISI), Dysfunctional Beliefs About Sleep-scale (DBAS), HAM-D17, MINI and Sleep Diary pre and post treatment. Participants are randomly assigned to either treatment as usual or CBT-I. The latter receives individual as well as group therapy with CBT-...
This observer-blind crossover intervention study aims to determine the most effective type of device as oral mouthguard in modified-Electroconvulsive Therapy (m-ECT) comparing three types of devices: standard, prefabricated and manufactured in the dental laboratory. Patients from the ECT Unit of Psychiatric Department of the University Hospital of Bellvitge will use the three devices at a random sequence during the twelve treatment sessions, so each device (A, B, C) will be us...
Dexmedetomidine has been known to protect the lung against inflammation and oxidative stress in diverse clinical settings. The investigators aimed to investigate the lung protective effect of dexmedetomidine in patients undergoing thoracic aortic surgery with hypothermic circulatory arrest, which is associated with systemic inflammatory response, and oxidative stress.
Multi-center Phase I/IIa Trial of an Autologous Tumor Lysate (TL) + Yeast Cell Wall Particles (YCWP) + Dendritic Cells (DC) Vaccine in Addition to Standard of Care Checkpoint Inhibitor of Choice in Metastatic Melanoma Patients With Stable or Slowly Progre
Assess the safety and tumor response of utilizing an autologous tumor lysate, particle-loaded, dendritic cell (TLPLDC) vaccine given in combination with standard of care (SoC) checkpoint inhibitors (CPI) in patients with stage IV melanoma with stable or slowly progressing disease.
This data collection Registry is a multi-center, observational outcomes Database designed to collect data on the demographics, presentation, diagnosis, treatment, resource use, quality of life and outcomes of subjects utilizing Caris Molecular Intelligence™ Services for treatment of solid tumor cancer.
This project will investigate the ability of a novel MRI contrast agent to identify and quantitate ongoing monocyte/macrophage (M/MΦ)-mediated inflammation in the brains of HIV-infected individuals.
This is a prospective, international, multi-center, open label, stratified, exploratory phase II study evaluating the efficacy and safety of lenvatinib in patients with advanced/metastatic, neuroendocrine tumors of the pancreas after progression to a previous targeted agent (cohort A) or gastrointestinal tract after progression to somatostatin analogues (cohort B).
Subjects who have completed study 4975-MN-202 will be eligible to receive open-label treatment with CNTX-4975 200 µg in study 4975-MN-203 if they meet the inclusion/exclusion criteria.
Hepatocellular carcinoma is one of ten leading cancer types worldwide and also in Asia, but the five-year relative survival rate is relatively quite low1-3. For hepatocellular carcinoma treatment, current options are surgical resection, embolization chemotherapy, radiation therapy, a variety of ablation therapy, biological and gene therapy, etc. Among them, the use of radiation therapy is getting more and more attention, and it is changing from the past palliative treatment to ...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether a wearable digital cognitive aid has an effect in the management of simulated crises in anesthesia or intensive care.
The study, investigates the current physical activity promotion practices among physicians and nurses, as well as social norms toward physical activity during treatment among cancer patients and among physicians and nurses who treat or counsel cancer patients. For this purpose, four large surveys with health care professionals (specialized practitioners, N=300; general practitioners, N=300; oncology nurses, N=300) and cancer patients (N=1200, 400 patients each with breast, pro...

The ISST study investigates whether integrated social cognitive remediation and social behavioral skills therapy is more efficacious in improving functional outcome and treatment adherence than an active control treatment comprising drill-and-practice oriented neurocognitive remediation.
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a common comorbidity of patients candidates to transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI). The management of chronic oral anticoagulation (OAC) for the prevention of ischemic stroke is very challenging in this population of complex and frail subjects. Since the percutaneous left atrial appendage (LAA) closure with the WATCHAMN device proved promising safety and efficacy results in randomized comparisons with OAC (current standard of care), the ai...
The purpose of this study is to see how useful the information provided from Positron Emission Tomography (PET) scans can be in the actual planning and delivery of radiation treatment to patients who have head and neck cancers. Patients participating in this study, will have (in addition to their routine tests) a PET scan before and during their radiation treatment. Following the intervention, patients will be followed as per standard practice.
