RV1729 is a new medicine being developed for the potential treatment of asthma and smoking related lung disease (also known as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease - COPD). The objective of this study is to investigate the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics repeat doses of RV1729 in patients with COPD for 28 days.

The broad, long-term objective of the proposed randomized clinical trial is to evaluate the efficacy, moderators and mechanisms of change of two cognitive-behavioral aftercare treatments for alcohol and other drug (AOD) use disorders in preventing AOD relapse compared to treatment as usual (TAU) offered in the community. The two cognitive-behavioral aftercare treatments are...

The Genetics of Chiari Type I Malformation

Added: 13:06 EDT 16 Sep 2014

Duke University Medical Center is investigating the hereditary basis of Chiari type I malformations with or without syringomyelia (CM1/S). Our research is aimed at learning if CM1/S is indeed caused by factors inherited through the family and, if so, which genes are involved.

Some of the drugs used in the conditioning treatment injure blood vessels. This damage may be responsible for transplant-related neurological problems seen in patients with sickle cell disease. The reason that patients with sickle cell disease are more prone to the effects of the conditioning treatment drugs may be that many of them have pre-existing damage to the blood ves...

Diverting ileostomies are created to protect a rectal anastomosis or in situations with a risk of intestinal perforation. Currently, the application of a rod to hinder slippage of the loop is an established technique to perform a diverting loop ileostomy. However, various "rod-less" techniques have been described and are performed with similar success. The aim of this study...

Clozapine-induced sinustachycardia occurs in 25% of patients treated with clozapine and sustained sinustachycardia might be a risk factor for dilated cardiomyopathy. This double-blinded cross over placebo controlled study investigate whether 10 mg bisoprolol are efficient in treating clozapine-induced sinustachycardia measured as heart rate, heart rate variability, QTc and ...

Evaluate the safety, tolerability and the tolerated maximum dose of MEDI-575 in adult subjects with advanced solid tumors refractory to standard therapy or for which no standard therapy exists.

Tryptophan Metabolism in Kidney Disease

Added: 03:27 EDT 27 Aug 2014

Tryptophan metabolism in kidney disease will be investigated in patients with chronic kidney disease stages (ADOQI 3-5). Tryptophan levels and respective catabolites will be assessed under hemodialysis.

Memantine and Antipsychotics Use

Added: 03:31 EDT 27 Aug 2014

To investigate the potential to reduce concomitant antipsychotic medication use in subjects with moderate dementia of Alzheimer's type, treated with memantine.

The purpose of this study was to compare the incidence of ventilator-associated pneumonia between two groups of patients randomised to have closed system suction catheter changes every 24 hours and patients having closed system suction catheter changes every seven days or as required.

This study will assess the efficacy, safety and tolerability of topically administered diclofenac gel versus placebo with respect to the symptom score (pain, temperature and size of erythema along the superficial vein)

Bumetanide vs. Furosemide in Heart Failure

Added: 21:35 EDT 23 Jul 2014

Patients with NYHA FC II-III heart failure will be randomized in a cross-over fashion to 8 weeks of bumetanide vs. furosemide therapy (equipotent dose), to test whether bumetanide therapy has a superior effect on insulin resistance compared to furosemide. Patients will be subject to a frequently sampled intravenous glucose tolerance test (FSIGT) with minimal model (MINMOD) ...

The purpose of this study is to compare the outcome of treatment for bacteremic MRSA infection with vancomycin alone, vancomycin plus gentamicin, vancomycin plus rifampin, and vancomycin plus gentamicin and rifampin.

The purpose of this study is to determine whether whole body washing with chlorhexidine in combination with mupirocine nasal ointment is effective in the eradication of meticillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).

The purpose of this study is to determine whether memantine is safe and effective when used as an augmentation to standard treatment for Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD).

The purpose of this study is to determine the bioequivalence (equivalence of pharmacokinetic parameters) of 2 abiraterone acetate coated tablet formulations with respect to the current commercial abiraterone acetate uncoated tablet formulation under fasted (without eating or drinking) conditions in healthy male participants.

The overall objective is to determine whether High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) has potential to improve disease activity scores for Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) patients. By reducing inflammation and modifying immune function HIIT may offer a substantial paradigm shift in RA care, especially in older persons with RA who experience aging related-immunesenescence, increa...

Postoperative recovery after live donor nephrectomy (LDN) is largely determined by the consequences of postoperative pain and analgesia consumptions. The investigators' goal is to establish the relationship between the use of deep neuromuscular blockade (NMB) during laparoscopic donor nephrectomy (LDN) and the early quality of recovery. Therefore, the investigators designed...

The objective of this single center, 4-week, open label randomized, phase II study is to evaluate and characterize the tolerability and clinical effectiveness of dexamethasone 0.5mg/5ml solution in a mucoadhesive vehicle (Mucolox™) for the treatment of oral lichen planus.

Recent studies have reported successful reduction of tinnitus after cochlear implantation (CI) in most CI users, but the mechanisms of reduction and the amount of improvement is not fully understood. Especially, the relative role of peripheral and central auditory pathways is not clearly known. This study assessed the effect of CI electrical stimulation on tinnitus in subje...
