This is a prospective, open-label, single arm translational study of cabazitaxel in bone Castration Resistant metastatic Pancreatic Cancer (mCRPC) patients. Patient will be treated with intravenous (iv) cabazitaxel 25mg/m2 every (q) 21days per standard clinical practice for up to 10 cycles or until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity or physician's decision or patient's consent withdrawal (whichever occurs first).
The aim of this study is to determine the minimum effective volume of local anesthetic (ropivacaine 0.275% and 0.325%) required to produce an effective double-injection USG-SCB for surgical anesthesia in 90% of patients (MEV90) in young group (18-40 years) and in middle aged group (40-65 years) of patients scheduled for elective surgery of one upper limb distal to the shoulder.
The goal of this project is to determine if a 6-session psychotherapy intervention will help Veterans feel less deployment-related guilt and less distress related to their guilt. Half of the participants will receive the guilt focused intervention and half will receive a supportive intervention.
Tuberculosis (TB) control remains a public health challenge. Many people in the UK do not have a general practitioner (GP) registration and their only interaction with the NHS is via Accident and Emergency (A&E) Departments of hospitals. This is often the case for those in hard to reach groups, who are also those often at highest risk of TB. This study seeks to assess whether A&E Departments are effective sites for the identification and onward management of TB, both in its lat...
The goal of this clinical research study is to learn if giving romidepsin before and after a stem cell transplant in combination with fludarabine and busulfan can help to control leukemia or lymphoma. Researchers also want to learn the highest tolerable dose of romidepsin that can be given with this combination. The safety of this combination and the safety of giving romidepsin after a stem cell transplant will also be studied.
The purpose of this study is to measure the effectiveness and safety of TD 4208, an investigational drug being developed to treat people with moderate to very severe COPD, compared to placebo, a treatment without activity.
This is a randomized, double-blind, active control, parallel group, exploratory phase 4 study to compare the effect of teneligliptin versus sitagliptin on glucose variability when added on to metformin in patients with inadequately controlled type 2 diabetes mellitus.
Rotator cuff arthropathy is a cause of shoulder arthritis which is a common condition seen both in primary and secondary care. It is a painful condition, with significant disability. Specialist shoulder replacements have found acceptance within the trust, nationally and internationally although there are high complication rates. There is however a significant cost difference (fifty fold) between a reverse total shoulder replacement and a botox injection, and to date there ha...
This study is a randomized parallel group controlled trial which aims to study the effects of pulmonary rehabilitation intervention on exercise capacity and quality of life in patients with severe COPD as compared to standard medical care. The expected duration is one and a half years with effect from 1st July, 2015 and will include 80 patients, 40 in each arm.
This is an open-label, two-group, fixed-sequence study to evaluate the effect of ACH-3102 and Simeprevir on AL-335 pharmacokinetics in healthy volunteers.
This is a Phase I, first-in-human (FIH), randomised, single-blind, placebo-controlled, single ascending dose sequential group study in healthy male subjects. The objectives are to study the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics and effects on glucose homeostasis (pharmacodynamics) of AZD9567, an oral differentiated non-steroidal selective glucocorticoid receptor modulator (SGRM).
This is a randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind, multiple cohort, fixed-dose multiple crossover, dose-finding study of oral BTD-001 in adult patients with IH or Narcolepsy without cataplexy (Type 2).
This study aims to evaluate whether, in a standardised cohort of patients with mild to moderate PTS, monitored for a sufficiently long follow-up period, quality of life measured by generic instruments and disease-specific instruments evolves favourably in this patient profile. Study objective: to evaluate the evolution of quality of life in general and in the specific context of the disease of patients who have experienced an episode of deep-vein thrombosis (DVT), are af...
In March 2012, the investigators initiated a prospective, cluster-randomized, controlled field trial in Kisumu County, located in an area in western Kenya which has the highest under-five mortality rate in Kenya with 149 childhood deaths per 1,000 live births 9. The study was designed to evaluate the effectiveness of an antimicrobial hand towel (hereafter referred to as towel) in preventing diarrheal diseases, acute respiratory infections, self-reported fever, and skin infectio...
This study aims to investigate and compare the intervention effects of combining exercise and cognitive training (either sequentially or simultaneously in a dual-task paradigm) in elderly with mild cognitive impairment. The investigators hypothesize that (1) both sequential and dual-task training can induce greater improvements in the outcome measures than single mode of training; (2) the improvement in cognitive functions and other outcomes may differ between the groups.
Ischemia-reperfusion injury resulted from pneumoperitoneum during laparoscopic surgery have been reported in some literatures. There are no studies investigating the time course of changes in oxidative stress markers in volume-controlled ventilation (VCV) and pressure-controlled ventilation (PCV) modes.
