This study is being proposed with the objective to assess the potential benefits of induced diuresis by furosemide with matched hydration therapy compared to standard hydration in the prev...
Patients at moderate and high risk for contrast induced nephropathy (CIN) should receive sufficient hydration before application of contrast to prevent CIN, but hydration could obviously i...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether hydration with sodium bicarbonate is more effective than hydration with sodium chloride to prevent contrast induced nephropathy in patient...
The increased risk for contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN) in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) undergoing coronary angiography (CAG) has been established. Current and historical ...
Patients with pre-existing kidney disease are at high risk of acute renal failure when exposed to radio-contrast dyes, for example during a cardiac angiogram. The investigators hypothesiz...
The low efficiency of recommended therapy for reducing cardiovascular risk (CV) in patients with arterial hypertension even with an effective blood pressure decrease is often due to the persistence of...
To assess the effectiveness of clarithromycin based standard triple therapy verses levofloxacin based first line therapy against Helicobacter pylori infection.
Serum troponin within the normal range is an emerging predictor of cardiovascular mortality. We aimed to determine how rapidly high-sensitivity troponin -I (hs-cTnI) levels are lowered by statin thera...
This study aimed to explore the adequate hydration with nitrates for patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and congestive heart failure (CHF) to reduce the risk of contrast-induced nephropathy (C...
It was recently reported that the C and AUC of rosuvastatin increases when it is coadministered with telmisartan and cyclosporine. Rosuvastatin is known to be a substrate of OATP1B1, OATP1B3, NTCP, an...
Preliminary cancer therapy (chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hormone/endocrine therapy, immunotherapy, hyperthermia, etc.) that precedes a necessary second modality of treatment.
A process in which peripheral blood is exposed in an extracorporeal flow system to photoactivated 8-methoxypsoralen (METHOXSALEN) and ultraviolet light - a procedure known as PUVA THERAPY. Photopheresis is at present a standard therapy for advanced cutaneous T-cell lymphoma; it shows promise in the treatment of autoimmune diseases.
A therapeutic approach, involving chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or surgery, after initial regimens have failed to lead to improvement in a patient's condition. Salvage therapy is most often used for neoplastic diseases.
Drug therapy given to augment or stimulate some other form of treatment such as surgery or radiation therapy. Adjuvant chemotherapy is commonly used in the therapy of cancer and can be administered before or after the primary treatment.
