The purpose of this study is to determine whether Kerlix AMD gauze will decrease the incidence of healthcare associated infections in burn patients. Kerlix AMD gauze will be applied to all patients with open wounds admitted to the burn unit during the prospective portion of the study. All consenting patients will be assessed for hospital associated infections and outcomes. We hypothesis that burn patients will have a decreased number of hospital associated infections compare...
Thoracotomy for lung tumor or for minimally invasive direct coronary artery bypass (MIDCAB) surgery, may be associated with debilitating pain. Ketamine was shown to enhance opioid antinociception and prevent opioid resistance. We hypothesize that ketamine given with morphine would lower morphine consumption and narcotic related side effects after thoracotomy and provide superior analgesia to morphine given alone.
A study to assess treatment with a new formulation of recombinant factor VIII reconstituted with liposomes (BAY79-4980) to evaluate whether a once-a-week treatment is safe and can prevent bleeds in subjects with severe haemophilia A.
The KEEPS Cognitive and Affective Study is a multi-center clinical trial investigating the potential benefits of menopausal hormone therapies administered to perimenopausal women. The UW investigators are serving as consultants for a cognitive substudy offered to enrollees of the Kronos Early Estrogen Prevention Study (KEEPS). See NCT00154180
Elective outpatient endoscopy for children can be safely performed under general anesthesia with either propofol (1) or ketamine (2) infusions. Both infusions have an advantage over general anesthesia with volatile agents because they do not require intubation. The goal of both infusions is to have the patient breath spontaneously without reacting to the endoscopy which is a noxious stimulus. Patient movement, stridor and vomiting are can interrupt the procedure and increase...
The purpose of this post-marketing surveillance study is to determine the proportion of study participants who demonstrate tissue stability, as seen using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), at the site of partial thickness articular cartilage defect on the femoral condyle observed during arthroscopy 6 months earlier and treated using one of three standard clinical methods.
There are multiple retrospective studies detailing the use of etomidate in pediatric procedural sedation but few to no prospective clinical trials. None have compared etomidate to ketamine, currently the most commonly used sedative in the emergency department for pediatric procedural sedation. We propose a randomized, controlled trial comparing etomidate versus ketamine for procedural sedation for fracture reduction for children presenting with extremity fracture requiring sed...
1. To evaluate the prevalence of BRCA1/2 mutation of breast cancer patients with family history of breast/ovarian cancer. 2. To evaluate the prevalence of BRCA1/2 mutation of breast cancer patients without family history, but high risk of hereditary cancer. 3. To evaluate the prevalence of BRCA1/2 mutation of family member of BRCA1/2 mutation. 4. To evaluate the prevalence of ovarian cancer of population of above 3 groups.
This is a Phase 1, open-label, single-center, dose-escalating study in pediatric patients with refractory or recurrent solid tumors. Patients will be registered into 1 of 2 strata, depending upon the presence bone marrow metastases or previous treatment with intensive myelosuppression therapy. Patients will receive Karenitecin along with cyclophosphamide daily for 5 consecutive days, every 21 days (1 treatment cycle). Treatment may continue for up to 20 cycles, as long as there...
The primary purpose of this study is to characterize the acute anti-dyskinetic properties of intravenous levetiracetam in Parkinson's disease patients who have been optimized on antiparkinsonian medication. The secondary objective is to study the effect of intravenous LEV on additional motor and cognitive symptoms of PD.
To determine whether a mild ketogenic diet can influences quality of life and survival of patients with recurrent glioblastoma
The purpose of this study is to assess the efficacy of KIDNET versus a Meditation/Relaxation protocol in treating traumatized children when applied by locally trained teacher counsellors as well as the effectiveness and adequacy of such a treatment in a south-asian war affected stayee child community.
This is an open randomized controlled study in children with mental retardation and refractory epilepsy in which treatment with ketogenic diet (KD) is compared with treatment with the antiepileptic drug (AED), not tried by the patient before, which we consider to be the most appropriate AED for the patient.
- There is no data at present concerning the KRAS mutation in patients from Martinique with colorectal cancer. Despite the fact that the incidence of this disease continues to increase there is no recent data to confirm it. This study has a descriptive purpose, allowing a comparison of the population from Martinique to other populations. - A study of incidence of colorectal cancer, overseen by the Association from Martinique for the Epidemiological Sear...
This is a retrospective descriptive study on the clinical and microbiological features of Klebsiella Pneumoniae Necrotizing Fasciitis.
This is a pilot study using a randomized, double blinded, comparison of two iodinated contrast agents used during percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). All patients enrolled must have and estimated glomerular filtration [eGFR] < 30 mL/min/1.73 m2. Statistical summaries will be presented to analyse the various laboratory tests for the two groups.
This will be a randomized double-blind placebo-controlled clinical trial that will accept all eligible consecutive patients undergoing elective Kalish bunionectomies. Patients will be randomized into either receiving ketorolac (30 mg IV dose intra-operatively followed by 10 mg orally every 8 hours for five days) plus standard of care or placebo plus standard of care. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effects of ketorolac plus standard of care on post-operative pain...
The objective of this study is to investigate whether JNJ-40411813 versus placebo reduces psychosis-like symptoms, induced by infusion of a low dose of ketamine. Effects of JNJ-40411813 on ketamine-induced symptoms will be evaluated about 3 hours after a single oral dose when the concentration of JNJ-40411813 in the blood is at its maximum and up to 24 hours after dose administration to assess the duration of a potential JNJ-40411813 effect.
The study is based on the premise that ultrasound is not commonly used in an ambulance. There are some departments that do deploy it into the field, but of those departments there is almost no data collected about its use. Currently Paramedics are not recognized by insurance companies as health care providers capable of performing ultrasound. If there were more data on the subject that may eventually change. We are hoping to prove that not only is ultrasound useful in an ambula...
The objective of this report is to describe a new surgical technique for the treatment of bony mallet finger which involves the application of both Kirschner wire and pull-out wire fixation. It is believed to decrease the risk of the complications.
The purpose of this study is to determine knowledge base in diagnosis, investigation and treatment of pediatric atopic dermatitis among thai pediatricians.
