Results between groups will be compared, and the best way to teach genetics to residents determined.
To make intravenous (IV) ganciclovir available to immunocompromised patients with life-threatening or sight-threatening Cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection, where the symptoms of the disease are too severe to allow admission to a controlled clinical study of ganciclovir therapy. To determine the safety and tolerance of 2 - 3 weeks induction course of ganciclovir IV followed by a maintenance course of ganciclovir IV for an indefinite duration. To tabulate the patient's clinical resp...
The purpose of this study is to determine if heredity influences the risk of life-threatening heart rhythms (ventricular tachycardia and ventricular fibrillation) after heart attack (myocardial infarction).
Susceptibility testing is commonly employed in patients with bacterial infections in order to guide rational use of antibiotics; however, the use of antifungal susceptibility testing is limited due to lack of availability, costs, and delays in receiving results. The goals of antifungal susceptibility testing should mirror those of antibacterial susceptibility testing: to predict clinical response or failure. Additionally, susceptibility reports should be used as a guide for p...
The objective of this study is to characterize genes associated either with susceptibility or resistance to the development nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) in a Chinese population where the incidence of NPC is as high as 50 in 100,000. NPC has been and remains a unique model of human malignancy for understanding a multi-step carcinogenic process involving a ubiquitous virus (Epstein-Barr virus), environmental carcinogens, and an NPC susceptibility gene. Up to 95% of all NPC pa...
The purpose of this study is to explore the pathogenesis and genetic susceptibility of obese subjects,providing a convincing argument for further treatment of obesity and metabolic syndrome.
Life-threatening infection impairs bloodflow to the gut, thereby causing less delivery of oxygen. This leads to increased formation of lactic acid. The investigators hypothesize, that the more serious the condition, the higher the concentration of lactic acid will be, thus relating to the risk of multiple organ failure or death.
The purpose of this study is to determine whether choosing antibiotics based on a biofilm antimicrobial susceptibility assay rather than a conventional planktonic antimicrobial susceptibility assay to treat CF patients with chronic P. aeruginosa infection with an acute pulmonary exacerbation is a safe intervention that will result in improved microbiological and clinical outcomes and decrease markers of pulmonary inflammation.
The purpose of this study is to identify genes that affect susceptibility to obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). By identifying genes that increase or decrease the risk of OCD, researchers can better understand how the condition develops and ultimately improve treatment for people with OCD. OCD is a severe, familial condition that affects approximately 2% of the population. The way OCD is inherited is not clearly understood, but researchers believe it is complex and inv...
This study will describe the experience of patients with visible physical abnormalities in the genetics clinic when they are involved in teaching others about their condition. Information from this study may be used to enhance educational experiences in genetics clinics. Patients 18 years of age and older with a visible physical anomaly who have been seen by a genetics professional in the past 5 years may be eligible for this study. In a tape-recorded telephone intervie...
This protocol provides for emergency treatment with the experimental anti-fungal drug voriconazole for patients with life-threatening invasive fungal infections. The increase in the number of patients whose immune function is suppressed because of chemotherapy, tissue or organ transplantation, or HIV infection has led to an increase in fungal infections. New drugs are needed to combat these infections in patients who do not respond to or cannot tolerate standard treatments. ...
To examine the genetics of human susceptibility to Chagas' disease, a leading cause of heart disease throughout Latin America.
To test the hypothesis that the responsiveness of major and emerging cardiovascular disease risk factors to changes in diet composition clusters within families depending on genetic susceptibility factors.
The purpose of the OMNI study is to characterize therapy and diagnostic utilization in study participants implanted with study devices and to describe Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator(ICD) therapy utilization for life threatening arrhythmias in primary and secondary prevention study participants. This study will assess therapies in Medtronic pacemaker, defibrillator, and cardiac resynchronization therapy devices. The first therapy is for reducing unnecessary pacing in p...
OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the induction of durable remission in patients with life-threatening systemic lupus erythematosus or antiphospholipid antibody syndrome treated with cyclophosphamide. II. Determine the toxicity of this drug in these patients.
The goal of this study is to identify the genes that contribute to susceptibility to recurrent/persistent middle ear disease. Five hundred families with at least 2 children who have undergone tympanostomy tube insertion will be enrolled. A blood sample will be obtained from the children who had tubes and any available parent (at least 1), as well as any siblings without significant histories of middle ear disease.
The goal of this study is to evaluate a virtual reality-based intervention for training health care providers who are not genetics specialists to effectively communicate with and counsel patients regarding cancer genetics.
To identify individual genes that contribute to variation in susceptibility to coronary heart disease (CHD) in Mexican Americans. The program project grant supports the San Antonio Family Heart Study, the first comprehensive genetic epidemiological study of atherosclerosis and its correlates in Mexican Americans.
The identification and characterization of susceptibility loci for H5N1 infection in humans could have profound implications. The detection of host genetic factors may shed light on key pathogenic interactions between H5N1 and human cells, assisting in identifying the viral characteristics determining pandemic potential. In addition, the identification and verification of susceptibility loci would be followed by functional studies which might point the way to new therapeutic an...
The purpose of this study is to see if vitamin B can treat mild hyperlactatemia (a higher than normal level of lactate in the blood) in patients who take nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTIs). Hyperlactatemia is a potentially life-threatening condition that can be associated with NRTI therapy. A lack of vitamin B may be related to the development of hyperlactatemia. However, no studies have been done to evaluate this. This study proposes that high doses of vitam...
OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the efficacy of unrelated donor hematopoietic stem cell transplantation in the treatment of patients with life threatening hemophagocytic disorders. II. Determine the rate of disease free survival, incidence of graft failure, and incidence of graft versus host disease in these patients after undergoing this treatment regimen.
It is thought that from the efficacy and safety information to date, it is possible that subjects with severe or life-threatening HES, and limited treatment options (unresponsive or intolerant to available HES medication), may benefit from mepolizumab treatment. Such subjects will not be able to access mepolizumab through the aforementioned clinical trials due to the severity of their disease. Waiting for regulatory approval would delay access. It is this population of subjects...
