The interferon-free combination regimen of Paritaprevir/r - Ombitasvir with or without Dasabuvir (ABBVIE REGIMEN) ± ribavirin (RBV) for the treatment of chronic hepatitis C (CHC) has been shown to be safe and effective in randomized controlled clinical trials with strict inclusion and exclusion criteria under well controlled conditions. This observational study is the first effectiveness research examining the ABBVIE REGIMEN ± RBV, used according to local label, under real w...
The hypothesis is that toddlers with parents who are randomized to a parenting intervention and toddlers with parents who are randomized to the maternal intervention focused on maternal diet and physical activity will be more likely to have weight status within normal and to consume a healthy diet and engage in physical activity than toddlers with parents in a placebo (safety) intervention.

The purpose of this study is to assess the safety and effectiveness of treatment with once daily (QD) oral administration of dexlansoprazole 30 or 60 mg for 8 to 12 weeks in pediatric subjects aged 1 to 11 years inclusive, with erosive esophagitis (EE) and to assess the safety and effectiveness of dexlansoprazole 15 or 30 mg compared to placebo in maintenance of healed EE for 16 weeks.
The present project has two primary aims: (1) to examine the effectiveness of a multi-component implementation strategy in improving adoption and adherence to the Dialectical Behavior Therapy Prolonged Exposure (DBT PE) protocol, and (2) to evaluate the feasibility, acceptability, and effectiveness of the DBT PE protocol in a sample of individuals receiving DBT in public mental health agencies. This study uses a hybrid type 2 effectiveness-implementation design to simultaneousl...
The purpose of this study is to determine if cholangioscopically-directed biopsies provide a higher diagnostic yield for malignancy in the setting of indeterminate biliary strictures when compared to standard means of sampling.
This trial is going to evaluate tumor control and quality of life in patients with prostate cancer treated with endocrine therapy with or without cryoablation.
In countries where there is high prevalence of doing episiotomy in primiparous women, the incidence of sustained obstetric anal sphincter injuries is increasing. When the tear extend beyond the external anal sphincter its called 'OASIS' that might lead to either immediate of delayed anal incontinence. Anal incontinence is associated with significant medical, hygiene and social problems. Use of perineal ultrasound as a bedside test immediately after vaginal delivery could impro...
48-hour application of metal allergen patches to test for potential allergic responses.
Perioperative administration of steroids has been demonstrated to reduce systemic inflammatory response in infants undergoing cardiac surgery with cardiopulmonary bypass. However, data on effects of steroids on clinical outcomes are lacking. Hence the hypothesis of the present study: intraoperative administration of dexamethasone reduces complication rates and improves clinical outcomes in infants undergoing repair of congenital heart defects under cardiopulmonary bypass.
The goal of this research study is to learn if mBCA, a type of scale that measures body mass (the amount of muscle and fat in your body) and your level of hydration can help researchers identify patients who are losing muscle mass during radiation therapy. This information will help researchers make decisions about nutritional supplementation and the placement of feeding tubes in patients receiving radiation therapy.
This is a randomized, double-blind placebo-controlled trial of high dose vitamin D3 at 10,000 International Units (IU) daily compared to low dose at 1000 IU daily in patients with Crohn's disease in remission.
The aims of this study were to investigate how intake of tailor-made salmon affected bone biomarkers, nutritional status, as well as body composition and bone mineral density. The 122 healthy postmenopausal women included in this 12 weeks intervention study were randomized into four groups: three salmon groups (with three different vitamin D3/vitamin K1 combinations) and one tablet group (vitamin D and Calcium).
The aim of this study is to analyze the clinical aspects of patients with BPPV associated with migraine. It is our purpose to clarify weather migraine is a risk factor for BPPV if the clinical aspect and the therapeutic outcome is different.
Primary objective is to investigate the effect of polydextrose on postprandial glucose concentrations in healthy adults when added to a food product. Secondary objective is to assess gastrointestinal tolerance and acute bowel changes.
The purpose of this study is to determine the feasibility of conducting a randomized controlled trial (RCT) with melatonin for prevention of delirium in critically ill adult patients. The investigators hypothesize that melatonin, administered on a scheduled nightly basis during ICU admission, will be efficacious and safe for the prevention of delirium in critically ill adults.
Obesity and type 2 diabetes are critical public health issues in youth. This study will test the effects and estimate the cost-effectiveness of a culturally-grounded community-based lifestyle intervention on type 2 diabetes risk among obese Latino adolescents with prediabetes.
Bleeding is an important consideration in breast surgeries that involve large resections of soft tissues in the breast. Inappropriate bleeding during or after surgery, can lead to uncomfortable fluid buildup in the breasts known as a hematoma or seroma, which may require additional procedures or reoperation. Patients may experience a great deal of discomfort and additional costs as a result; additional hospital time and procedures also burdens health care spending. Tranexamic a...

The purpose of this study is to test the effectiveness of prescribing park use (i.e., ''Park Prescription'') to insufficiently active individuals. It is hypothesized that Park Prescription will motivate the target population to increase physical activity and thereby improve their physical and mental health.
With the dissatisfaction of monoamine-based pharmacotherapy and the high comorbidity of physical illness in depression, the serotonin hypothesis seems to fail in approaching the etiology of depression. Based upon the evidence from epidemiological data, case-control studies of PUFAs compositions, and antidepressant effects in clinical trials, phospholipid polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) is enlightening a promising path to discover the unsolved of depression.
This trial is designed to preliminary evaluate the efficacy and safety of NIBS system for treatment of chronic low back pain (CLBP) (over 6 months). The trial is of a double blind sham controlled partial crossover design and will involve 2 weekly treatments and evaluations for 6 weeks, with 6 weeks follow-up. The goal of the study is to 1.
