Pilot Study of Raltegravir Lipodystrophy IISP

The substitution of raltegravir for the NRTIs will result in some reversal of the long term adverse effect of lipodystrophy (specifically peripheral lipoatrophy) that is associated with the chronic use of NRTIs. Changing the HAART regimen in patients with a sustained virological response from a PI plus NRTI to a regimen of the PI plus raltegravir will likely result in continued virologic efficacy.

Usability of Blood Glucose Control With the Space TGC System in Medical ICU Patients

Hyperglycemia is common in critically ill patients and associated with an adverse outcome. Thus, glycaemic control is an important issue in critical care. Despite extensive efforts of the intensive care unit staff difficulties were experienced in achieving efficient and safe glucose control. A fully automated algorithm may help to overcome some of these limitations by excluding intuitive interventions and integrating relevant clinical data in the decision-making process. Space ...

Cohort of HIV Associated Lymphomas

The incidence of lymphomas is increased among HIV infected patients. In 70 % of cases, those are Non Hodgkin's lymphomas (NHL) and Hodgkin lymphomas (HL) in 30% of cases. In France, their incidence is estimated to 100 cases per year (data from the "Base de données Hospitalière Française sur l'Infection à VIH" (FHDH)). The main mechanisms involved in lymphomagenesis are immune dysfunction, involvement of oncogenic viruses (Epstein-Barr (EBV) and HHV8) and molecular oncogenic...

The Efficacy Side Effects and the Tolerance of Polyethylene Glycol 3350 as a Bowel Prep in Children

Bowel preparation solutions containing Polyethylene Glycol is a commonly used preparation of the colon for colonoscopy in children. However young children and adolescents often subject to the volume and taste of liquid that must be consumed for an adequate preparation. Currently almost all of our patients experience some difficulty with completing the colyte preparation and approximately 10-20% is unable to achieve adequate cleansing due to inability to drink the solution. The ...

Long Term Observation of Patient Satisfaction Post INTRACOR Treatment Based on Patient Perception and Diagnostic Data

This study is a prospective, open, not randomized, unilateral multicenter eye study consisting of two study arms to observe the long term satisfaction of patients after an INTRACOR treatment. The satisfaction is determined with the help of the patient perception and the subjective / objective diagnostic data. The hypothesis of the study is that patients after an INTRACOR treatment are satisfied in the long term.

Sensitivity of Alternative NRL972 Detection Methods in Healthy Subjects

The disposition of NRL972 after a 15-second intravenous injection of 2 mg NRL972 is distinctly slower in patients with hepatic cirrhosis and acute hepatitis than in healthy control subjects. NRL972 appears to be a suitable investigational marker of hepatic transporter clearance dysfunction. Although the pharmacokinetics of NRL972 provide a reliable differentiation between subject groups, this approach relies on precisely timed sampling of venous blood, cautious preparat...

Control arm participants receive general health education. This family-based approach is implemented with school systems a...

Multicenter Phase II Study to Evaluate the Clinical Activity and the Safety Profile of Everolimus in Marginal Zone B-cell Lymphomas (MZL)

This is a multicenter open-label uncontrolled phase II study. There are no previous clinical data to estimate the expected response rate of everolimus in MALT lymphomas and in the other less common MZLs (i.e. nodal and splenic) refractory or relapsing after at least 1 prior systemic treatment (chemotherapy or immunotherapy). The primary objective of this study is to define the antitumor activity, in term of overall response rate (ORR), as sum of complete remissions (CR) and pa...

Feasibility Study of a Web-Based Automated Self-Administered 24-hour Dietary Recall (ASA 24) and a Physical Activity 24-hour Recall

In spite of long-standing hypothesis relating diet and physical activity to several cancers, diet and physical activity-cancer associations have been modest at best and often inconsistent in epidemiologic studies. Investigators around the world have become increasingly concerned that error in the measurement of both diet and physical activity is compromising our ability to detect these important but modest associations. Most commonly used diet and physical activity assessment m...

Natural History of Diseases Associated With Allergic Inflammation: Atopic Dermatitis and Genetic and Congenital Diseases Associated With Atopic Pathways

Background: - Allergic inflammation is central to allergy-related diseases and disorders, such as asthma, food allergies, and atopic dermatitis. Atopic dermatitis, commonly called eczema is a chronic, noncontagious skin condition, usually starting in the first years of life, which causes itching and scaling of an individual's skin. Because atopic dermatitis is a common condition in children who have allergy-related diseases, including asthma, researchers are interested ...

Sunitinib Malate With or Without Gemcitabine Hydrochloride in Treating Patients With Advanced Kidney Cancer That Cannot Be Removed By Surgery

RATIONALE: Sunitinib malate may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth or by blocking blood flow to the tumor. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as gemcitabine hydrochloride, work in different ways to stop the growth or tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. It is not yet known whether giving sunitinib malate and gemcitabine hydrochloride together is more effective than sunitinib malate alone in ...

Biomarker-Guided Fluorouracil in Treating Patients With Colorectal Cancer Receiving Combination Chemotherapy

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as fluorouracil, oxaliplatin, and leucovorin calcium, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Giving more than one drug, combination chemotherapy, may kill more tumor cells. Studying samples of blood in the laboratory from patients with cancer receiving fluorouracil in combination with oxaliplatin and leucovorin calcium may help doctors learn how fluorour...
