Background: Cardiovascular disease (CVD), osteoporosis and dementia are chronic diseases of ageing that impact adversely on the lives of those affected and have major health, social and economic consequences. A number of factors are considered to be implicated in these diseases, ranging from the more established factors to those that are less well recognised. Lifestyle factors such as diet, body weight, smoking, physical activity and years of education are acknowledged a...
The objectives of this study are to evaluate the safety of and efficacy of the KXL system with vibeX Rapid (Riboflavin Ophthalmic Solution) for Corneal Collagen Cross-Linking in eyes having: 1. Keratoconus (KC) , 2. Post LASIK ectasia (PLEc)
The purpose of this study is to determine the anti-inflammatory effect of high-dose riboflavin supplementation on chronic plaque psoriasis. Psoriasis is a common chronic skin disorder that affects over 4 million people. There is no cure for psoriasis and treatment is directed at controlling patients' symptoms. Amongst patients with skin disease, there is significant interest in using complementary alternative medicine and vitamins to treat their disease. Previous human case rep...
A complete intrastromal ring, MyoRing (Dioptex, GmbH, Linz, Austria), suggested by Albert Daxer in 2007, is a relatively new technique that has been demonstrated to treat keratoconus safely and effectively.Corneal collagen crosslinking (CXL), introduced by Wollensak et al. in 2003, has become a standard treatment for progressive keratoconus to slow or possibly stop progression of disease. The formation of the stromal pocket during MyoRing implantation offers the opportunity fo...
Our hypothesis focuses on the effect of riboflavin administered during the first three hours of ischemic stroke, as a reducing agent of cerebral glutamate concentration. This administration would produce a reduction of excitotoxic damage and consequently generate clinical improvement, while a lower income and a better functional prognosis of patients at three months.
This study will evaluate if suppelementation of the diet with riboflavin in Crohn's disease patients will result in an increase in the amount of F. prausnitzii.
the purpose of this study is to compare the efficacy and safety of a new method of corneal cross-linking that uses UV-A irradiation intensity of 9mW/cm2 for 7 minutes to well-known Accelerated corneal cross-linking (9 mW/cm2 UV-A irradiation for 10 minutes)
This study aims to use Schiotz tonometer to evaluate the corneal biomechanical properties. The administration of Schiotz tonometer is according to the routine protocol which is use to measure intra-ocular pressure. The results obtained from Schiotz tonometer will be compared with results obtained from ORA and/or Corvis.
The purpose of this study is to assess the efficacy of vitamin therapy in concussion when compared to placebo with respect to multiple endpoints including symptom severity, cognitive performance on computer based neuropsychological testing, post-concussion balance assessment, and post-concussion vestibular-oculomotor function.
The gold standard corneal crosslinking (CXL) technique involves the initial step of epithelial removal, in order to achieve a sufficient treatment effect (meaning: stabilisation of progressive keratoconus (KC). Our aim is to evaluate the effects of transepithelial CXL (TE-CXL), whereby the epithelium is left intact and the cornea is instead treated by a solution composed of 0.1% riboflavin, combined with enhancers, after which standard CXL is performed. This solution seems to f...
Corneal Cross Linking is new treatment modality for patients with keratoconus. A keratoconus is characterized by progressive bulging and thinning of the eye's cornea. Keratoconus is a potentially severely sight impairing condition that may necessitate corneal transplantation in the progressive state. Corneal Cross Linking is designed to - increase the cornea's mechanical stability - to stop progression of bulging and thinning of the cornea - to prevent...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of using riboflavin and UV light to treat progressive keratoconus or post-refractive corneal ectasia.
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...
The purpose of this study is to see if certain vitamins (C, E, B1, and B2) can keep lactate levels from becoming too high in patients who are taking nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NRTI) anti-HIV drugs. Some patients taking anti-HIV drugs develop hyperlactatemia. Hyperlactatemia is a condition in which lactate (a natural substance normally present in the body) levels are too high. Too much lactate in the body can lead to serious health problems. When patients suffe...
The purpose of this study is to determine the best way to treat people on d4T (stavudine) with high levels of lactic acid. Switching from d4T to abacavir will be assessed. Adding riboflavin and thiamine will also be assessed. Participants will be randomly assigned to one of four groups: - Group 1 participants will continue to take d4T as part of their antiretroviral (ARV) regimen, and will be given the vitamin supplements - Group 2 will continue to take d4T ...
Lactic acidosis is a potentially life-threatening disease associated with the treatment of chronic HIV infection. Although acidosis is rare, hyperlactatemia is common and may have long term consequences yet to be recognized. Lactic acidosis is a manifestation of mitochondrial toxicity; consequences which have yet to be fully recognized and understood. In this study, we propose to look at lactate clearance and production by two methods, in four treatment groups, including HIV po...
This is a randomised double-blind placebo-controlled trial to see whether giving a low dose of the vitamins folic acid and riboflavin is beneficial to women who have very low grade abnormalities of the cervical cells.
1. At 12 mo of age, all three intervention groups will have significantly better iron and vitamin A status than the NI group. 2. Infants who receive the Foodlet or Nutributter will have significantly greater weight and length gains from 6 to 12 mo and higher indices of vitamin B6, riboflavin and zinc status at 12 mo of age than the infants who receive the sprinkles containing iron and vitamin A only. 3. Infants who receive Nutributter will have s...
Background: Corneal cross linking is a procedure that induces collagen cross linking of the corneal stroma due to release of reactive oxygen radicals upon activation of topically applied riboflavine A by UVA exposure. This procedure might be capable of reducing keratocouns progression. Purpose: Although there are no randomised controlled trials on the effectiveness of corneal cross linking for the treatment of keratoconus it gains more and more importance in the general ...
Cross-linking of the cornea increases the mechanical and biochemical stability of the stromal tissue. The purpose of this study is to assess the effectiveness of riboflavin-ultraviolet light induced cross-linking of corneal collagen in improving visual acuity and reducing progression of keratoconus in the Brazilian population.
Prospective, randomized multicenter study to determine the safety and effectiveness of performing corneal collagen cross-linking (CXL) using riboflavin and UVA light in eyes with ectasia after refractive surgery.
Prospective, randomized, single site to determine the safety and effectiveness of performing corneal collagen cross-linking (CXL) using riboflavin and UVA light in eyes progressive keratoconus or corneal ectasia.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of collagen cross linking (CXL) in reducing progression of mild and moderate progressive keratoconus.
Corneal ectasia is a relative weakness in the structure of the cornea, which produces a progressive change in its shape which results in visual distortion. It is known that collagen cross-linking in the cornea occurs naturally with age, and in diabetes, both of which seem to prevent progressive ectasia. Corneal collagen cross-linking with riboflavin on corneas thicker than 400 microns has been shown to stabilize the cornea in keratoconus, and prevent progression of the diseas...
This study is comparing 15 minute and 30 minute treatment durations with the UVX corneal cross linking system to treat corneal infections.
