Integrated Molecular Profiling in Advanced Cancers Trial

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...

Efficacy and Safety of Imatinib in Scleroderma

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...

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).

Nasal Irritation Study: Individual Factors in Nasal Irritant Sensitivity

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...

High-sensitivity Troponin T in Acute Myocardial Infarction After Cardiac Valvular Surgery

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...

The purpose of correlating the output screening result of the novel device...

Using Drug Levels and Drug Resistance Testing to Select Effective Anti-HIV Drug Combinations in Patients With Drug-resistant HIV

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...

Serum Proteomics to Predict Gemcitabine Sensitivity in Breast Cancer

Tumors are heterogeneous with varying response to chemotherapeutic agents. We hypothesize that tumors that are sensitive to a particular chemotherapeutic agent have a distinctive tumor protein profile compared to those that are resistant. We further hypothesize that since tumor is continuously perfused by serum, serum protein profile can be used as a surrogate marker of tumor protein profile. The primary objective of this study is to identify a serum protein profile that predic...
