Background: Systemic lupus erythematosus (lupus) is an autoimmune disease that often involves many systems and organs of the body. Symptoms can include fever, joint pains, and rashes. Serious lupus can also damage organs like the kidneys, lungs, or brain. Drugs used for lupus can have serious side effects. Also, the drugs don t help some people. Researchers want to find new, more effective and safe treatments. Objective: To evaluate the safety and tolerability ...
Background: Abusing alcohol, drugs, and other substances can cause serious health problems. These substances also can affect brain function. Researchers want to learn more about brain function by using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). This uses a magnetic field and radio waves to take pictures of the brain. Objective: To develop new ways to use MRI to study the brain. Eligibility: Healthy people 18 years of age or older. Design: Participant...
ORAMED has developed an oral insulin that, in preliminary studies, has shown promise. In the present study investigators will perform a pharmacodynamic/pharmacokinetic study to evaluate this novel insulin preparation as a potential therapeutic option in diabetic patients.
A prospective observational cohort study to assess the predictive value of preoperative frailty on postoperative quality of life in cardiac surgery patients.
An open label, post-market, non-randomised, historical controlled, multi-centre study of the outcomes of the Triathlon Cruciate Retaining (CR) Total Knee System.
Behaviour changes such as improving nutrition, increasing physical activity, and decreasing obesity are linked with lower mortality and morbidity and fewer cancers. Health promotion programs in the workplace are a promising way to reach a large segment of the population. This project evaluated the efficacy of three approaches - all of which were based on previous research and programs with demonstrated positive benefits - on cancer-related outcomes (healthy eating, physical act...
The purpose of this study is to determine the highest tolerable dose of primaquine within 0.75 mg/kg. A tolerable dose is defined as one in which: - Two or fewer participants (< 30%) experience hemolysis; - No participant experiences a drug-related serious adverse event; and - No participant requires a blood transfusion.
The primary aim of this study is to study how Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) tailored to specific anorexia nervosa (AN) or bulimia nervosa (BN) brain activation alterations will promote recovery and to study how inhibitory tDCS (Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation) will reduce symptoms of body image distortion in a second sample of AN and BN groups.
Allergy is a very common problem and can be a handicap in everyday life, specially when symptoms occur at work place. Some persons working with drosophila developed respiratory symptoms. Investigators tried to analyze if these manifestations could be due to a specific allergy to drosophila.
This is a phase II study designed to investigate the combination of bortezomib with the mitoxantrone reinduction regimen used in the ALL R3 trial. The study will enroll patients with high risk ALL relapse including early bone marrow relapse and second or greater relapse of any kind. Patients with relapsed LL will also be eligible. Bone marrow evaluation will be performed after blood counts recover to assess the rate of CR (
Cataract is the clouding of the lens of the eye, which initially prevents clear vision and eventually progresses to blindness if left untreated. Cataract remains the leading cause of blindness and an important cause of visual impairment across the globe. Cataract surgery by ultrasonic phacoemulsification is the most common surgery practiced in France (600 000/year) Two sub-categories of phacoemulsification coexist : Endocapsulars techniques represented by Divide-and-Conquer a...
Muscle strength helps determine a person's quality of life and functional independence. Patients with rheumatoid arthritis often suffer from muscle weakness and a pre-diabetic condition called insulin resistance. By doing this study, the investigators hope to learn why patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) suffer from muscle weakness.
HPV vaccine coverage among adolescents in the US is suboptimal. This is particularly true among traditionally underserved adolescents. Few parent-targeted interventions have focused on the parental decision-making process. Self-persuasion, generating one's own arguments for engaging in a behavior, may be an effective means to influence parents' motivation to vaccinate their children. In a three-phase study, investigators are using quantitative and qualitative research methods t...
Anxiety is one of the major influences on relapse and substance abuse treatment dropout. Chemically dependent individuals need to be aware of their emotional state in situations that jeopardise their treatment. The current therapeutic resources still subjective and with limited treatment success. This research presents a developed virtual environment (VE) simultaneously connected to a physiological signals device acquisition that allows, through a biofeedback, the chemically de...
The primary objective of this study is to compare the efficacy, safety and tolerability of IDP-121 Lotion and vehicle in the treatment of subjects with acne vulgaris.
The aim of the study is to prove the efficacy and safety of pallidal DBS in HD patients and to show superiority of DBS on motor function in the stimulation group compared to stimulation-off group
The purpose of this study is to assess the effects of a protein-carbohydrate beverage on the absorption of an orally ingested bolus of L-carnitine, compared to flavoured water and carbohydrate-only controls, and to determine whether increasing plasma carnitine availability can impact upon insulin-stimulated muscle carnitine uptake.
This study aims to compare the acute effect of consuming milk and butter fortified with either vitamin D3 or 25 (OH) D3 on serum/plasma vitamin D status in humans. In addition, the effect of vitamin D3 or 25 (OH) D3 in milk and butter on certain CVD risk markers and cognitive function will be examined.
The goal of this project is to develop guidelines for the clinical tailoring of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) for Veterans with psychotic disorders and insomnia, and to test the acceptability, feasibility, and preliminary efficacy of CBT-I for improving sleep-related functional outcomes in this population.
The purpose of this study is to characterize the cortical connectivity changes in the brain of spastic diplegic children after Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effects of TXA on the immune system, its pharmacokinetics, as well as safety and efficacy in severely injured trauma patients.
The purpose of study is to see if adding probiotics to corticosteroid treatment for children with PFAPA could improve the health and daily of patients through reduction in febrile period frequency and length, along with concomitant reduction of associated symptoms. Current standard of care incorporates the administration of corticosteroids; however, while limiting the symptoms associated with PFAPA, corticosteroid use has been shown to increase the frequency at which these symp...
This is a prospective, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study about the effect of metformin in patients with mild Graves' ophthalmopathy. Eighty patients with mild ophthalmopathy will be included. Each patient will be given either metformin (500mg PO three times a day) or placebo ( PO three times a day ) for 6 months and then followed for 6 months after withdrawal of treatment.
Patients with colorectal cancer that had metastatic lesions after been treated with definitive surgery or chemoradiotherapy are being asked to participate in this study. 1. To observe immunity-mediated tumor response outside the radiation field (abscopal effect) after chemoradiotherapy of a metastatic site in metastatic colorectal cancer patients. 2. To induce the efficacy (effectiveness) of a new combination of therapy, chemoradiotherapy and thymalf...
The purpose of this study is to compare anatomical differences, quality of life and sexual function and complications rate between apical support with one anterior vaginal mesh versus repair with two separate meshes.
