The purpose of this study is to investigate the extent to which diet and exercise may improve PAH through the modulation of insulin sensitivity. The central hypothesis is that dysregulated glucose metabolism elicits a response in PAH patients that can be modified by exercise and diet, thereby leading to improvements in pulmonary vascular disease.
The purpose of this trial is to evaluate the disease control rate of subjects with metastatic appendiceal cancer for whom initial fluoropyrimidine-based chemotherapy has failed. Based on previous studies, the anticancer activityof nintedanib in lung and ovarian cancer trials, along with the similarities between appendiceal and colorectal cancer and potentially ovarian cancer, warrant additional investigation for the optimal treatment of metastatic appendiceal carcinomas.
The BASKA mask (Logikal Health Products PTY Ltd., Morisset, NSW, Australia) is a novel supraglottic airway device. It has many of the features of other supraglottic airways, with a number of innovations. These include; A non-inflatable cuff, that it is continuous with the central channel of the device. As the pressure increases with positive pressure ventilation, the cuff itself is 'inflated', this may improve the seal, reduce leak, and make ventilation more efficient.
Upper limb recovery after stroke is highly predictable early after stroke. Nijland et al. showed that based on two simple clinical bedside tests - 'Shoulder Abduction' and 'Finger Extension' (the so called 'SAFE model' [Stinear et al., 2012]) - measured within the first 72 hours after stroke, ~87% of the patients could be correctly classified as either regaining or not regaining some dexterity (recoverers or nonrecoverers, respectively) (Nijland et al., 2010). This kind of info...

And analyse the effects of nasal High-flow oxygen therapy on the acute exercise in a ...
Adoptive T cell therapy with tumor infiltrating lymphocytes (TIL) has achieved impressive clinical results with durable complete responses in patients with metastatic melanoma. Recently, the investigators have completed a pilot study treating 6 patients with metastatic ovarian cancer. The TILs are isolated from patients own tumor tissue followed by in vitro expansion and activation for around 4-6 weeks. Before TIL infusion the patients receive 1 week of preconditioning chemothe...
Study Title: A Phase 4 Study to Assess the Clinical Efficacy of H.P. Acthar Gel 80 U/ml to Improve the Signs and Symptoms in Subjects with Dry Eye Disease
Millions of children and adolescents are prescribed opioid pain relievers each year, placing them at risk for serious adverse events and misuse in the home setting. Parents who manage these medicines, therefore, need to recognize opioid-related risks and make decisions that will both reduce these risks yet ensure effective pain relief for their children. The proposed research will evaluate new strategies to help parents learn about opioid risks, make safe and effective analgesi...

The study assesses whether adding a behavioral intervention, known as the Adolescent Community Reinforcement Approach (A-CRA), to the treatment of individuals already receiving buprenorphine/naloxone can improve treatment success and retention rates in young adults with severe opioid use disorder.
Introduction: Dyspnea and fatigue are the main clinical symptoms of heart failure and primarily responsible for exercise intolerance found in this syndrome. Now, It is known that the use of NIV in CPAP mode applied before exercise increases exercise tolerance in people with heart failure; however, it's not yet known if the bi-level mode is able to generate similar or even better results, due to pressure increase of the ventilatory support in this modality. Moreover, it is possi...

The purpose of this study is to determine if patients with ER+, HER2-, advanced breast cancer are receiving dosing adjustments and monitoring based on manufacturer recommendations at a tertiary academic medical center.
In patients with locally advanced hormone receptor positive (HR+)/HER2- breast cancer, neoadjuvant chemotherapy produces a pathologic complete response rate (pCR) of only 9-15%, and late recurrences often occur despite neoadjuvant chemotherapy. Therefore, there is an unmet clinical need to improve the outcomes of these patients. Tumor-associated macrophages (TAM) infiltration leads to poor outcomes in breast cancer patients by promoting angiogenesis, activating epithelial-mesen...
