A study to test the safety, tolerability, and efficacy of 4 regimens of vaniprevir + Peg-IFN and RBV as compared to placebo + Peg-IFN and RBV.
The purpose of the study is to compare how sitagliptin and glipizide lower blood glucose levels in patients with moderate and severe renal insufficiency.
The purpose of this study is to investigate the efficacy, safety, and tolerability of an investigational treatment for patients with Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV).
This is a multicenter study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of MK0476 versus placebo in patients with chronic asthma who actively smoke cigarettes.
This study will evaluate the bioequivalence of alendronate in combination with vitamin D (cholecalciferol) compared to alendronate alone and the bioequivalence of vitamin D in combination ...
Our ability to detect statistical dependencies between different events in the environment is strongly biased by the number of coincidences between them. Even when there is no true covariation between...
To monitor extrinsic stain formation over 24 weeks with twice-daily use of an anhydrous 0.454% SnF2 dentifrice containing 5% sodium tripolyphosphate (STP) ('Test'), compared to a standard fluoride den...
A Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo- and Active Comparator-Controlled Phase I Study of Analgesic/Antihyperalgesic Properties of ASP8477, a Fatty Acid Amide Hydrolase Inhibitor, in Healthy Female Subjects.
To evaluate the analgesic/antihyperalgesic effect of ASP8477.
Advanced age is an important risk factor for fracture. The Abaloparatide Comparator Trial In Vertebral Endpoints (ACTIVE) trial showed that subcutaneous abaloparatide increased bone mineral density (B...
The United States has poorer child health outcomes than other wealthy nations despite greater per capita spending on health care for children. To better understand this phenomenon, we examined mortali...
Sodium or sodium compounds used in foods or as a food. The most frequently used compounds are sodium chloride or sodium glutamate.
A voltage-gated sodium channel subtype that mediates the sodium ion PERMEABILITY of CARDIOMYOCYTES. Defects in the SCN5A gene, which codes for the alpha subunit of this sodium channel, are associated with a variety of CARDIAC DISEASES that result from loss of sodium channel function.
Stable sodium atoms that have the same atomic number as the element sodium, but differ in atomic weight. Na-23 is a stable sodium isotope.
A family of membrane proteins that selectively conduct SODIUM ions due to changes in the TRANSMEMBRANE POTENTIAL DIFFERENCE. They typically have a multimeric structure with a core alpha subunit that defines the sodium channel subtype and several beta subunits that modulate sodium channel activity.
Cell membrane glycoproteins selective for sodium ions. Fast sodium current is associated with the action potential in neural membranes.
Osteoporosis is a disease in which the bones become extremely porous, are subject to fracture, and heal slowly, occurring especially in women following menopause and often leading to curvature of the spine from vertebral collapse. Follow and track&n...
