This is an open-label Phase I study of plasma, genitourinary, rectal, and pharyngeal pharmacokinetics of a single 1000mg oral dose of solithromycin. Study Objectives: The primary objective...
The purpose of this study is to determine the risks and benefits of antibiotic treatment for Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) among patients whose stool samples are nucleic acid ampli...
A Phase 4 trial to compare the efficacy of azithromycin (Arm 1) vs. doxycycline (Arm 2) administered per CDC's STD Treatment Guidelines for rectal Chlamydia trachomatis (CT) in men who hav...
To validate the pharyngeal constriction ration, a surrogate measure of pharyngeal strength on fluoroscopy by comparing it with simultaneous pharyngeal manometry.
The hypothesis to be proven with this study is that the use of PET/CT on the initial staging of rectal cancers in patients with extramural vascular invasion detected by MR will detect more...
Rectal douching/enema (RD) is a common practice among men who have sex with men (MSM) in preparation for sex. RD can break down the rectal mucosal barrier and potentially affect the rectal microbiome....
The aim of the present study was to determine the clinical characteristics, frequency of opportunistic infections (OI) in HCV-positive kidney recipients and to evaluate HCV replication as a risk facto...
Schwannomas of gastrointestinal tracts are rare and difficult to detect preoperatively because of negative results of endoscopic and imaging examinations. Here, we reported a case of rectal schwannoma...
To investigate MRI radiomic analysis to assess IMRT associated rectal wall changes and also for predicting radiotherapy induced rectal toxicity.
Carotid endarterectomy (CEA) requires complete control of the blood backflow. An anomalous ascending pharyngeal artery (AphA) has been reported to result in incomplete control of the blood flow during...
The ability to detect sharp boundaries (stimuli) and to detect slight changes in luminance at regions without distinct contours. Psychophysical measurements of this visual function are used to evaluate visual acuity and to detect eye disease.
A deep blue dye (with the formula OC6H4NC6H4OH) used to detect AMMONIA in a common test called the Berthelot's reaction and to detect PARACETAMOL by spectrophotometry.
A diverticulum from the fourth pharyngeal pouch of an embryo, regarded by some as a rudimentary fifth pharyngeal pouch and by others as a lateral thyroid primordium. The ultimobranchial bodies of lower vertebrates contain large amounts of calcitonin. In mammals the bodies fuse with the thyroid gland and are thought to develop into the parafollicular cells. (Stedman, 25th ed)
A test to detect non-agglutinating ANTIBODIES against ERYTHROCYTES by use of anti-antibodies (the Coombs' reagent.) The direct test is applied to freshly drawn blood to detect antibody bound to circulating red cells. The indirect test is applied to serum to detect the presence of antibodies that can bind to red blood cells.
The muscles of the PHARYNX are voluntary muscles arranged in two layers. The external circular layer consists of three constrictors (superior, middle, and inferior). The internal longitudinal layer consists of the palatopharyngeus, the salpingopharyngeus, and the stylopharyngeus. During swallowing, the outer layer constricts the pharyngeal wall and the inner layer elevates pharynx and LARYNX.
