The use of a pneumatic tourniquet with the purpose of maintaining an operative field free of blood is a common practice in orthopedic surgery. Its use is associated with local and systemic consequences related to hemodynamic and reperfusion ischemia phenomena. Although is known that its use is not an innocuous measure, there is still certain degree blurriness regarding the potential metabolic and functional consequences that may result in the involved limb. In this trial...
Pneumonia is a major infectious cause of death worldwide and imposes a considerable burden on healthcare resources. Obstructive lung diseases (COPD and Asthma) are increasingly important causes of morbidity and mortality worldwide. The patients with community-acquired pneumonia (CAP), and acute exacerbations of obstructive lung diseases commonly present with similar signs and symptoms. For antibiotic use, the rapid and accurate differentiation of clinically relevant of bacteria...
Prospective assessment of vitamin K dependent coagulation factor levels after temporary warfarin reversal in participants with left ventricular assist devices (LAVD).
Epidemiological findings indicate that older adults do not meet physical activity (PA) guidelines & spend up to 11 hrs/day sitting. Given the high prevalence of sedentary behavior (SB), the higher chronic disease risk in this population, & the age-associated challenges of meeting traditional PA guidelines, involving longer bouts of moderate PA, we hypothesize that older adult health will benefit from new strategies to interrupt sitting. This protocol "Sedentary Behavior Interru...
In this study multifetal pregnancy reduction (to twins) will be carried out through a transvaginal route, at an early gestational age (6 weeks - 9weeks + 6days) using 2 methods: mere mechanical disruption against potassium chloride injection. The 2 methods will be compared regarding the efficacy, complications and pregnancy outcome.
We propose to implement a standardized protocol to initiate nasal non-invasive ventilation with RAM nasal cannula (NIV/RAM-NC) with Trilogy mechanical ventilator at the Children Memorial Hospital inpatient and outpatient site, as well as to explore the side effects and complications associated with the use of NIV/RAM-NC in children.
This Phase 1 study is designed to determine the photoirritation potential of CCP-020 (Diacerein 1%) when application is followed by light exposure.
A study in healthy male and female adult volunteers to determine the potential of CCP-020 (Diacerein 1%) Topical Ointment to induce a photoallergic skin reaction using a controlled photopatch testing procedure.
A randomized controlled trial that involved 100 women diagnosed with PPROM between 24 and 34 weeks of gestational age. Participants were randomized equally into 2 groups. Group I in which amniopatch was done (an amnioinfusion of platelet concentrate followed by fresh frozen plasma in addition to the routine management used in the control group. Group II were treated with routine management including antibiotics and corticosteroids
This is a phase 3, multicenter, double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled, parallel-group study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of CSL112 on reducing the risk of major adverse CV events [MACE - cardiovascular (CV) death, myocardial infarction (MI), and stroke] in subjects with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) diagnosed with either ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) or non-ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI), including those managed with percu...
This is a phase 1A randomized double blind placebo controlled single ascending dose and multiple ascending dose trial of inhaled PK10571 in healthy adult subjects
The purpose of the study is to generate pilot data describing test characteristics of contrast enhanced ultrasound in young children with concern for abdominal trauma. The primary objective in this study is to determine the sensitivity and specificity of contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) compared to abdominal Computed Tomography (CT) in the detection of abdominal solid organ injury in young children < 8 years of age with concern for blunt abdominal trauma.
This study evaluates the efficacy and safety of the empagliflozin as add-on thearpy compared to insulin glargine-based antidiabetic agents (OADs) combination thearpy in patients with type 2 diabetes inadequately controlled on triple OADs in a real clinical practice.
This study will explore the brainstem activity in response to stress in hypertensive patients and normotensive subjects. In addition, it will evaluate if the response in hypertensive patients can be modulated by blocking the afferent signalling of sympathetic nervous system from the kidney to the brain achieved by renal denervation. We hypothesize that the change in BOLD signal intensity in response to stress is higher in hypertensive patients than in normotensive subjects and...
The proposed study will establish a newly-identified signaling pathway regulating both autophagy and apoptosis in human satellite cells. These findings will allow for novel pharmacological targets in satellite cells to return regenerative capacity to elderly individuals. Up to 80 adults, 21 years of age and greater, will undergo a consent visit followed by three blood draws and muscle biopsy visits- baseline (pre), after the first exercise bout (post-acute), and after the 12 we...
The main purpose of this study is to estimate change in motor function 12 months after treatment with a single dose of allogeneic umbilical cord blood (AlloCB) or repeated doses of umbilical cord tissue-derived mesenchymal stromal cells (hCT-MSC) in children with cerebral palsy. In addition, this study will contribute much needed data to the clinical trials community on the natural history of the motor function in CP over short-term (less than 1 year) time periods relevant to t...
An open labeled Study (NCT03331445) is demonstrating encouraging safety and efficacy results for most subjects receiving 160ppm nitric oxide gas (gNO) for treatment of non-tuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) over a 15 day treatment regimen. In one subject, who had a reduction in sputum culture concentration of Bacterium bolletii from plus 3 to plus 1 corresponding to a 2-3 log10 cfu/gm reduction during the treatment, the one-week post treatment follow-up sputum culture had increased...
