The primary objective is to evaluate the benefit of the SmartDelay™ algorithm in patients with a prolonged RV-LV interval.
The present study aims to identify the efficacy saturation effect of low intensity extracorporeal shockwave treatment (LI-ESWT) using Aries ED device in men with mild-moderate and severe vasculogenic ED, who have previously responded to oral PDE5-Is. The efficacy and safety of 4 different session frequency protocols will be compared.
Different subtypes of serrated lesions have been recently described. Among them, both sessile serrated polyp/adenoma (SSP/A) and traditional serrated adenoma (TSA) could have malignant potential through the serrated pathway or CIMP. These lesions, as a potential source of interval cancer, should also be considered in colorectal cancer (CRC) population-based screening programs. It is believed that this new described pathway could be responsible for up to 30% of all CRC. U...
The present study aims to identify and compare the efficacy and safety of two different session frequency protocols (once vs twice per week) of low intensity extracorporeal shockwave treatment (LI-ESWT) using Aries ED device, in men with mild-moderate and severe vasculogenic ED, who have previously responded to oral PDE5-Is
The investigators plan to determine the effectiveness of contingency management (CM) plus stepped care for unhealthy alcohol use in HIV-positive patients.
New strategies trying to achieve blood pressure control and consequently reduce cardiovascular risk in resistant hypertensive subjects are promising. In this context, the SGLT2 inhibitor dapagliflozin, not yet investigated in resistant hypertension, arises as a potential drug in order to impact on blood pressure levels, as well as target organ damage and adiposity in this high-risk population.
Bronchial remodeling is a major pathological feature of asthma. Non-invasive assessment of this bronchial remodeling is a crucial issue for asthma patients' follow-up. Currently, computed tomography (CT) is the method of reference to evaluate and quantify bronchial thickness but it remains unable to differentiate bronchial inflammation from remodelling and is a radiation-based technique. Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) with Ultrashort Echo Time (UTE) pulse sequences is a promi...
This study evaluates the predictive value of soluvent urokinase plasminogen activator receptor (suPAR) and lactate with respect to serious conditions among patients presenting to the EMS with unspecific symptoms.
The present study evaluates the efficacy and safety of repetitive treatments of Low Intensity Extracorporeal Shock Wave Treatment (LI-ESWT) using Aries ED device in men with mild-moderate and severe vasculogenic ED, who have previously responded to oral PDE5-Is, and completed 6 or 12 sessions of LI-ESWT with Aries device during the last 6 month.
The objective of this project is to develop, validate, and implement a tool to help manager hypertension in patients on hemodialysis.
Collection of Additional Data Followed the Study "A Phase III Study of Velcade Thalidomide Dexaméthasone Versus Velcade Cyclophosphamide Dexaméthasone as an Induction Treatment Prior to Autologous Stem Cell Transplantation in Patients With Newly Diagnos
Collection of retrospective additional data (survival, biological, disease response data) following the study IFM 2013-04.
Photobiomodulation therapy (PBMT) is a non-pharmacological method commonly used in treatment of musculoskeletal disorders. However, there are few high-quality scientific evidence to support the effectiveness of this therapy in the treatment of patients with chronic low back pain, at short, medium and long term. The present research project aims to evaluate the effects of PBMT in patients with chronic non-specific low back pain.
The purpose of the study is to learn which treatment option is better for patients who have multi-vessel coronary artery disease (blockages in more than one vessel supplying blood to the heart muscle). The treatment options this study will compare are: (1) Hybrid Coronary Revascularization [HCR] (a combination of surgery and catheter procedures to open up clogged heart arteries) and (2) Percutaneous Coronary Intervention [PCI] (catheter procedures alone to open up clogged heart...
The effects of 12 hours of prolonged standing will be compared to prolonged standing on a high fat tolerance test the following day. Plasma triglycerides, insulin, and glucose will be measured in a crossover study design.
to evaluate safety and efficacy of CGBIO stent(DES) compared to Biomatrix flex stent(DES)
This observational cohort study aims to develop a novel risk stratification system implementing biomechanics to aid in the prevention of diabetic foot ulcers.
It is hypothesized that food allergy is preceded by atopic dermatitis (AD), due to a disruption of skin barrier which can predispose one to food sensitization through the skin. Lipid-enriched moisturizers are widely used in AD as ongoing treatment and maintenance skin care. The investigators hypothesize that early intervention with lipid-rich barrier cream in infants at high risk of atopy will prevent skin barrier dysfunction, and thereby prevent the risk of epicutaneous food a...
PGD is a syndrome characterized by alveolocapillary barrier structural and functional alterations with surfactant inactivation and vascular permeability increase, which cause lung edema, parenchymal infiltrate and progressive hypoxemia. PGD may be enhanced in lung donor. Inflammatory and structural changes may be present in the lungs before organ recovery and/or after organ preservation. The investigators aim to identify the surfactant protein, inflammatory and structural chan...
Breast cancer is leading cause of cancer among Canadian women with nearly 26,000 new cases diagnosed each year. Fortunately, advancements in diagnostic tools and curative treatments have significantly improved overall survival. However, the development of cardiac toxicity (including asymptomatic and symptomatic heart failure) associated with use of anthracycline containing chemotherapy and targeted therapies including trastuzumab limits improvements in survival for women with b...
Many "Survivors" in the World Trade Center (WTC) clinical program have a clinical syndrome characterized by chronic obstruction in small airways and persistence of lower respiratory symptoms despite therapy. This study will test the hypothesis that persistent symptoms in WTC "Survivors" are associated with abnormal small airways whose dysfunction is amplified during exercise and is associated with biologic evidence of inflammation and remodeling. The results from this study wil...
The use of videolarygoscopy (VL) as first choice for tracheal intubation versus direct laryngoscopy (DL) is a matter of debate. These two methods were compared in several studies. Videolaryngoscopes may reduce the number of failed intubations, particularly among patients presenting with a difficult airway. They improve the glottic view and may reduce airway trauma. DM is accepted as a risk factor for difficult intubation. The aim of this study is to compare VL to DL in ...
In this one-year pilot study of 30 non-treatment seeking young adult e-cigarette/cigarette dual users (15 males/15 females), we will use smartphone-based ecological momentary assessment (EMA) to gather real-time data of e-cigarette and cigarette behaviors during a 1-week cigarette/e-cigarette dual use period and a 2-week exclusive e-cigarette use period. Exclusive e- cigarette use will be promoted with contingency management (CM) procedures.(1) Participants will respond to dail...
This is a substudy (Part 2) of a larger two-part clinical trial including both observational and therapeutic (interventional) cohorts to assess the progression free survival ratio of patients treated with a targeted therapy based on genomic analysis results and recommendation by the Markey Cancer Center Molecular Tumor Board (MCC MTB).
Comparison of the salivary levels of Streptococcus mutans in pediatric patients with Early Childhood Caries after the application of Silver Diamine Fluoride or 5% Sodium Fluoride Varnish
This study will evaluate the efficacy of intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy for the treatment of dry eye disease. One eye of the participant will be randomized to receive the IPL treatment.
