Treatment of a PDA With Acetaminophen in Preterm Neonates: Exploring Various Indications

This study will evaluate the use of acetaminophen in preterm infants when a patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) is of concern. We will perform two simultaneous prospective observational studies over a 3 year period. The first will be of infants with clinically significant PDAs beyond 14 days of life who are medically treated with acetaminophen as a means to avoid surgical ligation, and the second will be of infants who received acetaminophen for a PDA closure during the first 2 week...

The purpose of this study is to determine whether the supine position is better than the left lateral horizontal body position to decrease cecal intubation time, patients' pain and the difficulty of colonoscopy insertion.

CD19 /22 CAR T Cells (AUTO3) for the Treatment of B Cell ALL

The purpose of this study is to test the safety and efficacy of AUTO3, a CAR T cell treatment targeting CD19 and CD22 in paediatric or young adult patients with relapsed or refractory B cell acute lymphoblastic leukaemia.

Study of Diagnosis of Color Power Doppler Combined Minimally Invasive Sampling for Endometrial Diseases

The postmenopausal women with vaginal bleeding were selected in this cross-sectional study. The basic characteristics information and endometrial blood flow energy index of endometrium were detected by color power Doppler ultrasound, and the energy histogram of endometrium was obtained. The specimen of uterine cytology and endometrial tissue were obtained through minimally invasive endometrium sampler, which were diagnosed by pathology. The statistical data were used to detect ...

Treatment of HFpEF With Nitrate Supplement

The objective of this project is to determine if Neo40, a nitric oxide generating lozenge, when consumed twice daily by subjects with HFpEF, will increase exercise tolerance, decrease symptoms and improve quality of life for patients.

Evaluation of 2 Diets With Different Starch Digestibility Profiles on Daily Glycemic Profile, in T2D Patients

The study is a randomized pilot study. The research hypothesis is that the diet high in SDS content (H-SDS) will lower the daylong glycemic response and improve the glycemic control in patients with type 2 diabetes (T2D) compared to the diet low in SDS content (L-SDS).

Longvida Curcumin Human Pharmacokinetics Study

The primary objective of the study is to characterize the curcumin metabolites of 2 different capsule formulations of curcumin relative to unformulated Curcuma longa extract of Rhizomes including assessing relative bioavailability and absorption/kinetic profile of curcumonoids and their metabolites in human plasma and urine after acute consumption.

Clopidogrel Prevention of Early Arteriovenous (AV) Fistula Thrombosis

The objective of the study is to determine whether clopidogrel reduces the early failure rate of native AV fistulae. This study was originally registered as NCT00067119 which included two protocols, this one and the GRAFT study)

A Study Of Avelumab In Combination With Axitinib In Advanced HCC

To evaluate the safety, efficacy and PK of avelumab in combination with axitinib as first line treatment in patients with advanced HCC

The Active Mind Study

The purpose of this study is to explore whether physical exercise, mindfulness training, or both interventions together can improve cognitive function in individuals with multiple risk factors for the development of dementia in the future.

Effects of Testosterone and Fat Utilization

Evidence is accumulating that there are sex differences in energy and substrate metabolism. The positive or negative consequences of such metabolic differences between men and women need to be evaluated with respect to health outcomes. The importance of aberrant lipid metabolism in metabolic diseases such as obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease, makes understanding the distinction between "normal" vs aberrant critical to future treatment and prevention strategies. Sex d...

Microgrid II - Electrocorticography Signals for Human Hand Prosthetics

Neurologic disease with loss of motor function is a major health burden. Brain-computer interfaces (BCI) are systems that use brain signals to power an external device, such as a communication board or a prosthetic device, which may help people with loss of motor function. Electrocorticography (ECoG) has been used to decode hand movements and as a control signal for brain-computer interface (BCI). This study hopes to use a smaller spacing of ECoG to see if a better motor signal...

A National Registry For Patients With Hidradenitis Suppurativa

The goal of this study is to get a better understanding of the skin condition, Hidradenitis Suppurativa, and to find out how the disease affects quality of life. We hope this information will help us improve our treatment for this skin condition

Effect of Involving Community Dwelling Older People Receiving Meals-on-wheels in Activities in Relation to Meals

The clinical study's hypothesis is that community dwelling older people receiving meals-on-wheels can have an improvement in health-related quality of life and muscle strength, being involved in their own food and meals compared to not being involved in their own food and meals; that is usual community home-care and meals-on-wheels.

Preeclampsia Ratio (sFlt-1/PlGF)

The aim of the PRECOG study is to determine in a prospective interventional randomized study whether the implementation of a predictive test based on the sFLT-1/PlGF ratio improves perinatal care and reduces costs, in patients with suspected preeclampsia before 35 weeks of gestation.

SHARE for Persons With Chronic Conditions and Their Family Caregivers

SHARE-CC is an intervention for families facing the challenges of chronic conditions.

Effectiveness Study of New Generation Bednets in the Context of Conventional Insecticide Resistance in the Democratic Republic of the Congo

Despite the mass distribution of LLINs (long-lasting insecticidal nets) as a Malaria control strategy, populations are still continuously exposed to a high frequency of malarial inoculation in some countries. The situation can be explained by a swift increase in the resistance of Anopheles to common insecticides. To preserve the gains of insecticides and improve their effectiveness, a new generation of bednets treated with piperonyl butoxide combination insectides have emerged....

Storytelling Narrative Communication Intervention for Smoking Cessation in Women Living With HIV

HIV has transformed into a chronic illness due to the advent of effective treatments in the absence of a cure. As a result, the prevalence of non-AIDS defining cancers (NADCs), including lung cancer, has increased three-fold among people living with HIV. NADCs now account for 50% of all cancers among the people. Smoking is one of the major contributing factors to lung cancer and smoking prevalence is substantially higher in this population than the general U.S. population. Smok...
