Mesalamine for Colorectal Cancer Prevention Program in Lynch Syndrome

Multicenter, multinational, randomized, 3-arm, double-blind, phase II clinical study with 2400mg Mesalamine, 1200mg Mesalamine or placebo for prevention of neoplasia in Lynch Syndrome pati...

Evaluation of Efficacy of Mesalamine in the Long-term Prevention of Diverticulitis Flares

The purpose of this study is to determine whether mesalamine is effective vs. placebo in the prevention of diverticulitis flares in a 24-months follow-up. The primary end-point of the stu...

Mesalamine to Reduce T Cell Activation in HIV Infection

The objective of this study is to determine whether 12 weeks of mesalamine therapy added to a standard HIV treatment decreases systemic immune activation and inflammation in HIV-infected p...

Beryllium Infliximab Study: Clinical Interventional Trial

The goal of this research study is to test the clinical effectiveness of a drug called infliximab (Remicade) in chronic beryllium disease (CBD). This drug may reduce tumor necrosis factor...

Mesalamine for Colorectal Cancer Prevention Program in Lynch Syndrome

5-Aminosalicylic Acid Modulates the Immune Response in Chronic Beryllium Disease Subjects.

Chronic beryllium disease (CBD) is characterized by accumulation of macrophages and beryllium-specific CD4(+) T cells that proliferate and produce Th1 cytokines. 5-Amino salicylic acid (5-ASA) is curr...

Mesalamine (5-ASA) for the prevention of recurrent diverticulitis.

Diverticular disease is a common condition that increases in prevalence with age. Recent theories on the pathogenesis of diverticular inflammation have implicated chronic inflammation similar to that ...

Treatment of adult chronic indeterminate Chagas disease with benznidazole and three E1224 dosing regimens: a proof-of-concept, randomised, placebo-controlled trial.

Chagas disease is a major neglected vector-borne disease. In this study, we investigated the safety and efficacy of three oral E1224 (a water-soluble ravuconazole prodrug) regimens and benznidazole ve...

Genetic variants in cellular transport do not affect mesalamine response in ulcerative colitis.

Mesalamine is commonly used to treat ulcerative colitis (UC). Although mesalamine acts topically, in vitro data suggest that intracellular transport is required for its beneficial effect. Genetic vari...

Dapagliflozin for prednisone-induced hyperglycemia in acute exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

This study aimed to compare the effectiveness and safety of add-on treatment with dapagliflozin to placebo in subjects with prednisone-induced hyperglycemia during treatment for acute exacerbation of ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Beryllium. An element with the atomic symbol Be, atomic number 4, and atomic weight 9.01218. Short exposure to this element can lead to a type of poisoning known as BERYLLIOSIS.

A subcategory of CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DISEASE. The disease is characterized by hypersecretion of mucus accompanied by a chronic (more than 3 months in 2 consecutive years) productive cough. Infectious agents are a major cause of chronic bronchitis.

A disease of chronic diffuse irreversible airflow obstruction. Subcategories of COPD include CHRONIC BRONCHITIS and PULMONARY EMPHYSEMA.

An anti-inflammatory agent, structurally related to the SALICYLATES, which is active in INFLAMMATORY BOWEL DISEASE. It is considered to be the active moiety of SULPHASALAZINE. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed)

A transmissible spongiform encephalopathy (prion disease) of DEER and elk characterized by chronic weight loss leading to death. It is thought to spread by direct contact between animals or through environmental contamination with the prion protein (PRIONS).
