The objective of this study is to explore the safety and performance of the Genio™ system in adult obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) patients with and without complete concentric collapse of the soft palate over a period of 4.5 months of treatment (i.e. 6 months post-surgery) measured by the AHI, at rest to determine if there is a difference in performance between the two populations.
This study explores the effects of single-dose losartan (50mg) versus identical placebo capsule on emotional memory and learning in healthy volunteers.
The objective of this study is to evaluate the benefits of participating for 8 weeks in a home-based daily treatment with heat therapy (HT) or a thermoneutral control intervention, as assessed by vascular function, walking tolerance and quality of life.
The Superior Vena cava Respiratory Collapse Index (cVCS) is a haemodynamic parameter measured exclusively by transoesophageal ultrasound (TEE), which is used to assess cardiac precharge-dependence status. This may be an important prognostic factor in ARDS because it is a sign of hypervolemia and right heart failure.
A prospective, open label, multi-center, single arm, observational study designed to evaluate the acute safety and device procedural success of the Scoreflex NC Scoring PTCA catheters in subjects with stenotic coronary arteries during percutaneous coronary intervention. Two-hundred (200) subjects will be treated at up to 15 U.S. sites with the Scoreflex NC Scoring PTCA catheter during their index procedure. All subjects will be screened according to the protocol inclusion and ...
This observational monocentric prospective study aims to evaluate the efficacy of new measures for ventilator associated pneumonia (VAP) management in the pediatric population in the pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) of Fondazione Policlinico Agostino Gemelli of 8 beds. The investigators will compare the incidence of VAP in the group of patients in which this protocol has been implemented to a retrospective control group of patients before the new protocol implementation. VA...
To characterize the effects of stimulation parameters on pain relief.
Rationale: Intra-operative optical coherence tomography (iOCT) is a new technology that incorporates advanced imaging techniques in the ophthalmic operating theatre. This allows surgeons to visualize tissues in a way previously impossible We conceptualized an iOCT-guided surgical protocol for the treatment of endothelial cell dysfunction, that refrains from the current practice of over-pressurizing the eye at the end of surgery. Objective: The aim of this study is to assess th...
The purpose of the Study is to test a higher dose of steroids(Dexamethasone) given just prior to surgery in the setting of Fast-Track Knee surgery with Arthroplasty in a group of expected High Pain Responders and the effect on postoperative pain and postoperative inflammation.
The aim of this study is to verify the beneficial effects on insulin resistance and fetal sonographic parameters of a diet supplementation of myoinositol taken during the third trimester by pregnant women affected by gestational diabetes. Participants should be randomly allocated to take either myoinositol or placebo twice/day for 8 weeks. The effect of myoinositol will be checked in blood samples (insulinemia and Homeostasis Model Assessment - Insulin Resistance "HOMA-IR") and...
Colonoscopy is the gold-standard for the evaluation of the colorectal mucosa. Colonoscopy quality indicators are the adenoma detection rate, the rate of cecal intubation and the bowel preparation. The role of diet in preparing for colonoscopy is not fully established. Currently there is not enough evidence available to choice between 3 days of low residue diet versus 1 day. The research hypothesis is that the low residue diet offers a non-inferior bowel preparation and ...
Patients will be randomized 3 groups: Group 1: Abdominal fascial closure will be performed with Triclosan-coated barbed Polydioxanone suture Group 2:Abdominal fascial closure will be performed with Triclosan-coated monofilament Polydioxanone suture Group 3: Abdominal fascial closure will be performed with monofilament Polydioxanone suture Incisional surgical.site infection will be recorded.
Children who will have surgery and need anesthesia, and their parents are often anxious and show signs of stress and discomfort. A main reason for concern and anxiety is fear of anesthesia and surgery, and lack of knowledge of what is going to happen. The purpose of the study is to see if a specific preoperative information brochure aimed at the parents will make the parents feel better prepared for the procedures.
Skin sympathetic nerve activity (SKNA) has recently been discovered from the electrocardiogram obtained from healthy volunteers. The raw physiologic electric signal from electrodes placed on the skin was reprocessed through filtering and integration using software to produce the SKNA signal. However, no study has yet provided knowledge on the effect of anesthetics on SKNA during general anesthesia.
This is a multi-center study to evaluate the safety, tolerability, PK, PD, and clinical activity of EQ001 in subjects with Acute Graft Versus Host Disease (aGVHD).
Perceptual-cognitive training (PCT) is a computerized software game has been shown to improve sport performance in young elite athletes and even to aid in recovery speeds post-concussion. PCT may represent a unique type of training that could ultimately enhance cognitive performance or quality of life in all populations. What is not clear is whether PCT is beneficial to older adults with subjective memory complaints (SMCs). SMCs in older adults are an early risk indicator for A...
The purpose of this study is to apply local heat to the legs, thighs and buttocks of patients with peripheral arterial disease and use PET/CT imaging with an injectable stable radiotracer to study direct measurement of blood flow in the legs pre and post heat treatment.
Compassionate use access to GSK2857916 for eligible participants with refractory/relapsing multiple myeloma

The treating physician/investigator contacts Lilly when, based on their medical opinion, a patient meets the criteria for inclusion in the expanded access program.
The efficacy of the Periosteal Inhibition technique for socket preservation is studies against a control group in which the extraction sockets are allowed to heal without a socket preservation procedure.
This study is prospective, open and randomized concerning the value of an Internet-based educational program for patients with atrial fibrillation compared to "care as usual".
The objective is to conduct an RCT to evaluate the effectiveness of Licorice in comparison to standard caries preventive measures for the prevention of new carious lesions in high caries risk patients.
High grade gliomas (WHO grade III and IV)(HGG) are the most common malignant, and aggressive brain tumour in humans. Current understanding of the mechanisms contributing to their growth and progression remain limited. Furthermore, treatment options have not advanced in recent decades. Recently, it has become evident that these tumours are dependent on glucose metabolism to maintain oncogenic properties. From a preclinical standpoint, targeting hexokinase 2 (HK2), the first comm...
The 1608-EORTC-BTG study - Wait or Treat - concerns patients that represent a clinically favorable group of patients with IDHmutated astrocytoma (oligo-symptomatic), without a need for immediate post-operative treatment. It will establish whether early adjuvant treatment with radiotherapy and adjuvant temozolomide in resected IDHmutated astrocytoma will improve outcome, and whether benefits of early treatment outweigh potential side-effects of that, such as deterioration in neu...
