Durability of Flexible Ureteroscopes and Causes of Infection During Flexible Ureterorenoscopy

This is an observational study in which data on consecutive patients who undergo ureterorenoscopy with the use of a flexible ureterorenoscope are collected. In total 4 new ureteroscopes are used (2 from Olympus and 2 from Storz) to study the durability of the ureteroscopes and the possible microbiological load.

Preoxygenation Method With a Calibrated Leak

During preoxygenation, imperfect seal between the face mask and patient's face can induce an inward air leak decreasing its effectiveness. We assume that noninvasive ventilation could cancel the effect of the leak. This is a prospective study. Healthy volunteers are randomised in cross-over between spontaeous breathing or noninvasive ventilation perssure support preoxygenation in the presence or absence of a calibrated leak on the inspiratory circuit.

Postoperative Delirium in Adult Patients After Elective Craniotomy Under General Anaesthesia

Postoperative delirium may result in many adverse complications. At present little is known about postoperative delirium in patients after crniotomy because they may manifest similar symptoms to definitely delirium for some structural brain disease. Objective of this study is to find out incidence and risk factors of postoperative delirium in patients after elective craniotomy and also the relationship of postoperative delirium with clinical outcome.

Treatment With Zoledronic Acid Subsequent to Denosumab in Osteoporosis

Denosumab is an antibody against receptor-activator of nuclear factor kappa-B ligand that prevents recruitment and differentiation of mature osteoclasts. Treatment markedly decrease bone resorption and fracture risk, and many patients will reach osteopenic BMD levels on treatment with denosumab. The treatment effect on bone turnover and BMD has, however, been demonstrated to be reversible. This study will show if the bone mass can be maintained by administrating zoledronic acid...

PDL-1 Targeting in Resectable Oesophageal Cancer: a Phase II Feasibility Study of Atezolizumab and Chemoradiation

Impact of Cotrimoxazole Use in Immunocompetent HIV Patients on Carriage of Antimicrobial Resistant Bacteria

Cotrimoxazole preventive therapy (CPT) is recommended for prevention of morbidity and mortality due to Pneumocystis pneumonia and other infections in HIV positive patients with low immunity. Common clinical practice is to start CPT in any patient with CD4 counts below 200/µL, and, conversely, to stop CPT when immunity has been restored by antiretroviral treatment to CD4 counts above 200/µL or when viral suppression has been documented for 3 months. However, the latest WHO gui...

Phase 2 Study of Grape Seed Extract in Asymptomatic Non-Metastatic Prostate Cancer Patients With Rising PSA

Patients will take 150 mg of GSE product by mouth twice daily and will be evaluated every 6 weeks for 3 months, then every 3 months thereafter for up to one year.

Safety and Efficacy of Levomilnacipran ER in Adolescent Patients With Major Depressive Disorder

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy, safety, and tolerability of levomilnacipran ER relative to placebo in adolescent outpatients (12-17 years) with Major Depressive Disorder (MDD). In addition, the study is designed to obtain pharmacokinetics (PK) data to guide dose selection for future pediatric studies of levomilnacipran.

Follow-up Trial of Rituximab Interferon Transplant Trial: Study Drug-Rituximab and Alpha Interferon

A previous phase II trial entitled Treatment of Follicular non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma with High Dose Therapy and Stem Cell Support Followed by Consolidative Immunotherapy with Rituximab and Alpha Interferon was conducted at the Odette Cancer Centre between 2005 and 2012. The primary objectives of this previous trial was to assess progression free survival and overall survival. Of the 36 patients in this trial, approximately 18 remain in remission. In this new follow up trial, follo...

Pharmacokinetics and Safety of Fevipiprant in Patients With Renal Impairment Compared to Matched Healthy Subjects

The aim of the study is to assess whether renal impairment could affect fevipiprant pharmacokinetics (PK) to the extent that dosage adjustment is appropriate for this patient population. The study also aims to determine the effect of dialysis on the fevipiprant pharmacokinetic profile as the procedure might remove a significant fraction of the drug

Prospective Study on Efficacy and Safety of SCYX-7158 in Patients Infected by Human African Trypanosomiasis Due to T.b. Gambiense

The goal of this study is to assess efficacy and safety of SCYX-7158 given as a single dose oral treatment for adult patients (above or equal 15) in the fasting state with T.b. Gambiense HAT

Circulating Androgen Levels Are Not Affected by the Administration of Vaginal Micronized Progesterone for Withdrawal Bleeding in Patients With Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

Hormonal evaluation of women who are suspected of having Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) involves the measurement of basal levels of androgens and 17-hydroxyprogesterone (17-OHP), which are generally used to establish the presence of hyperandrogenemia. In general, these levels are obtained during the follicular phase to maintain sampling uniformity and avoid spurious increases due to corpus luteum function. However, because most hyperandrogenic patients are oligo/amenorrheic, ...
