The purpose of this study is to build a database of results from a new test that measures contrast sensitivity (the Spaeth-Richman Contrast Sensitivity Test (SPARCS)). Contrast sensitivity is an important part of your ability to see. When contrast sensitivity decreases, you are less able to see objects and detect motion. For instance, if you have decreased contrast sensitivity, you might be less able to read, see in the dark, drive, hit a ball, or walk safely. Decrease in contr...
VVZ-149 is a novel analgesic drug candidate that shows a potential analgesic activity inhibiting GlyT2 and 5HT2A simultaneously. These target receptors have been known to play important roles in induction and transmission of pain signals. There have been many efforts to develop selective drugs to treat pain, but usually unsuccessful due to the lack of efficacy or limitations of single-target approach for new drug discovery. VVZ-149 is expected to be a dual-target drug, demonstr...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether the addition of selective pharmacogenomic (PGx) testing as determined by Urine Drug Testing (UDT) adds a clinical benefit as evidenced by a reduction in Target Drug-related Adverse Events (TDRAE) over the period following enrollment.
A Prospective Evaluation of Contrast Sensitivity and Disability Glare in Refractive Surgery, a Sub-Study of: Initial Evaluation of Excimer Laser Keratorefractive Surgery in U.S. Army Personnel (WU # 2335-99)
The purpose of this study is to conduct a prospective assessment of small target contrast sensitivity and disability glare in refractive surgery. Study subjects will undergo the treatment of their choice (PRK or LASIK) and will be evaluated before and after treatment. Evaluations will include best corrected visual acuity, uncorrected visual acuity, psychometric questionnaire, pupil size, biomicroscopic examination, manifest refraction, wavefront measurements, low contrast acui...
A large and growing segment of the population is prediabetic. Dietary interventions that improve insulin sensitivity may be important in preventing the progression to full-blown diabetes in these individuals. Foods and dietary compounds that increase insulin sensitivity are likely to help maintain a healthier body composition. This pilot study will provide data to evaluate the role of dietary plant polyphenols in improving insulin sensitivity.
The purpose of this study is to perform a five-year, multi-center prospective evaluation of the Discovery™ Elbow System for outcome and durability. Relief of pain and restoration of function will determine long-term clinical outcome while durability will be measured by the absence of revisions.
Cigarette smoking is the leading cause of death and disability in the United States. Although smoking has declined since 1964, it is still very common among some groups of people. One such group is persons with emotional symptoms and disorders. There has been little success in developing treatments for smoking cessation for smokers with affective disturbances. Recent work suggests that being sensitive to, and less tolerant of, stress is associated with many problems in d...
Substantial progress has been made in the treatment of cancer through the use of targeted therapies, but what works for one patient might not work for another patient. Certain drugs are now being developed that target specific molecules in the body that are believed to be part of the disease. Biomarkers are specific characteristics of the cancer that may help provide prognostic information (i.e. how well patients will be regardless of the treatments given) or help predi...
In vitro studies have shown that imatinib 1mM inhibits strongly the growth of cutaneous fibroblasts. The hypothesis is that imatinib inhibits PDGFR which is known to be a potential target for the molecule, as recently also proposed after the discovery of autoantibodies activating the PDGF receptors. Recent data indicate that TGFb is also a potential target of imatinib. Cutaneous scleroderma is characterized by progressive cutaneous fibrosis caused by hyperactive dermal fibrobla...
Diabetic nephropathy (kidney problems caused by diabetes) is a devastating chronic vascular complication of diabetes. New treatments are urgently needed for preventing or slowing down the progression of diabetic kidney disease. Samples of serum/plasma/urine will be obtained from patients with diabetes and different degree of renal impairment. In this project cells in culture will be treated with plasma or serum or urine; cells extracts or supernatant will be studied to screen ...
The objective of the study is to evaluate the process of early re-endothelialization of the Coroflex® ISAR Drug-eluting stent compared with the Ultimaster® Drug-eluting stent
Propofol is a drug of choice for deep sedation in endoscopy. Propofol can be administered in many ways: by infusion or intravenous boluses and with self-administration device (patient-controlled sedation; PCS). It is not clear which method of propofol administration would be preferable. The main objective of the trial is to compare 2 different methods of propofol administration during ERCP: patient-controlled administration(PCS) and target-controlled infusion (TCI).
The purpose of this study is to examine whether stress predicts telomere length in individuals who hold executive-level positions. Telomeres are the caps at the end of each strand of DNA that may affect how cells age. Subjects will complete an online survey/interview and provide one blood sample or saliva samples. Our goal is to understand whether stress predicts genetic markers of longevity.
This study seeks to document differences in nasal irritant sensitivity within the population. The investigators are interested in knowing whether age, gender, and allergy status (nasal allergies) predict nasal irritant sensitivity. This is important in understanding symptom reporting patterns in air pollution situations (particularly in so-called "problem buildings"), as well as in understanding the reflex mechanism of a response of the nose to irritants (e.g., nasal congesti...
To measure the spontaneous baroreflex sensitivity in ambulatory patient, a device made for measuring blood pressure beat by beat and continuously, the SOMNOtouch system, could be a useful tool. The SOMNOtouch system has never been used to assess the sensitivity of the baroreflex. A good correlation for measuring the baroreflex sensitivity between the system "SOMNOtouch" and digital photoplethysmography as a reference method is expected but should be evaluated. The main purpuse ...
Because people infected with HIV strains that are resistant to anti-HIV drugs have fewer effective treatment options, selecting an effective anti-HIV drug combination is difficult. A combination of protease inhibitors (PIs), when added to a patient's current anti-HIV therapy, may decrease viral load and increase drug activity. Tests that measure drug levels in the blood and tests to evaluate the drug resistance of HIV may also be helpful in choosing the best anti-HIV drug comb...
This study will evaluate the safety and tolerability of BB-12 with LGG in healthy children with autism spectrum disorder aged 6-13 years. Subjects will be randomized to BB-12 with LGG orally (LGG dose: 109 c.f.u.'s; BB-12: 109) for a total of 28 doses or placebo (maltodextrin) at 2:1 ratio. The time on study treatment is 28 days, and the target sample size is 45 individuals (i.e., 30 in the treatment arm and 15 in the placebo arm).
This study is intended to test an experimental drug called EMD 525797 (Study Drug). This drug is not yet approved for sale and has only been tested in a small number of people to date (prior to this study starting another research study was carried out involving 37 healthy volunteers receiving the Study Drug).

This clinical trial studies the feasibility of choosing treatment based on a high throughput ex vivo drug sensitivity assay in combination with mutation analysis for patients with acute leukemia that has returned after a period of improvement or does not respond to treatment. A high throughput screening assay tests many different drugs individually or in combination that kill leukemia cells in tiny chambers at the same time. High throughput drug sensitivity assay and mutation a...
The purpose of this study is to calculate the sensitivity and specificity of a novel imaging device and associated software algorithm in detecting early stage melanoma versus nevi of the skin. The instrument, which was invented by the PI, for the purposes of this study, will be loaned to three external (to Rockefeller) institutions and used on patients who are scheduled for biopsy of pigmented lesions. The purpose of correlating the output screening result of the novel device...
A measurable degree of heart muscle tissue injury is expected in patients undergoing heart valvular surgery. The level of this injury can be measured by cardiac biomarkers in blood samples. Those biomarkers are used to diagnose an acute myocardial infarction. Postoperative myocardial infarction (MI) is a frequent and important complication after cardiac surgery with high morbidity and mortality. Therefore it is very important to recognize any cardiac event in patients who unde...
Patients with recurrent or metastatic sarcoma will be consented to develop a patient derived xenograft (PDX or TumorGraft) model of their tumor to perform drug sensitivity testing. The purpose of the study is to evaluate the accuracy of the patient derived xenograft (PDX) model in predicting patient clinical response to the same drug treatment.
Left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) predicts mortality at start of dialysis. Prevention of of LVH is important. It is not known whether secondary hyperparathyroidism might induce LVH. In the present study patients are randomised to 1.25 dihydroxycholecalciferol or no treatment to study the effect on LVH.
