The study is to assess the safety and efficacy of the immunotherapies using anti-MUC1 CAR T cells and /or PD-1 knockout engineered T cells in the treatment of patients with advanced esophageal cancer.
Tranexamic (TXA)acid is an inexpensive, antifibrinolytic drug long used to control bleeding due to surgery, menorrhagia, or trauma. Additionally, tranexamic acid has been shown to reduce bleeding during cesarean delivery as well as the need for additional uterotonic agents, albeit to a minimal degree. However, previous studies have been performed only in women with a standard risk for postpartum hemorrhage( PPH) and have not focused on assessing the effects of tranexamic acid i...
This is a prospective randomized single blinded study in patients planned to undergo general anesthesia and epidural catheter insertion for pain control after abdominal, thoracic and orthopedic surgery. Patients meeting participation criteria will be selected and enrolled sequentially. The study recruitment will be carried out over one year with follow-up for each patient until either the catheter is dislodged or once decided that the patient is to be discontinued from ...
This study is being done to see how safe and effective abemaciclib is when given together with abiraterone acetate plus prednisone in participants with metastatic castration resistant prostate cancer.
The study specifically aims to determine glycemic and insulinemic response of added low GI ingredients, beta-glucan, resistant starch and isomaltulose to foods.
Hypothesis: There exists patients who have met ALS or PMA diagnostic criteria and subsequently experienced robust and sustained improvement, i.e. a "reversal." Thirty-eight of these patients were identified in the prior Duke University study, Documentation of Known ALS Reversals (St.A.R. Protocol 1, Duke IRB Pro00076395). We hypothesize these patients have had different environmental exposures than patients with typically progressive ALS. Identification of specific environmenta...
Validation of a high-resolution, fast track pathway that combines the use of laboratory tests at the Point-of-Care Testing (POCT) and Point-of-Care ultrasound (POCUS) versus the classical pathway, in which blood samples are sent to the central laboratory and comprehensive radiological exams ordered, being equally effective, at a lower cost of care and time of stay in the emergency deparment.
We are conducting a pilot intervention trial to assess the feasibility of a live consultation between community hospital providers and tertiary care providers employing a novel teleconsult platform, Maine Neonatal Encephalopathy Teleconsult (Maine NET), on the time to initiation of TH for 10 infants born in community hospitals in Maine compared with matched historical controls. We will also assess community hospital and tertiary care center provider satisfaction with the Maine ...
Cross-over comparison of lipid layer thickness and dry eye symptoms with two artificial tear formulations.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of Darvadstrocel for the treatment of complex perianal fistulas in adult patients with Crohn's disease over 24 weeks.
The purpose of this study is to assess the oral BA of TAK-831 T3 tablet formulation relative to TAK-831 T2 tablet formulation under fasting conditions and to assess the effect of food on the pharmacokinetics (PK) of TAK-831 T3 tablet formulation.
An exploratory, open label, multiple dose, multicentre phase I/II trial evaluating safety and efficacy of postnatal or prenatal and postnatal administration of allogeneic expanded fetal mesenchymal stem cells for the treatment of severe Osteogenesis Imperfecta compared with a combination of historical and untreated prospective controls.
In a normal spine, the sagittal plane has four curvatures that balance each other. The cervical and lumbar spine is lordotic, the thoracic spine and sacral region are kyphotic. In the sagittal plane, there is an average of 40 kyphosis angles between the T1 vertebrae upper end plate and the T12 vertebra lower end plate. Thoracic kyphosis is defined as an increase in the normal thoracic curvature (above 40) of the spine. Postural kyphosis usually occurs when individuals with weak...
Robot-assisted laparoscopic radical prostatectomy (RALRP) is a surgical technique for the treatment of prostate cancer. The aim of this study was to report our initial experience with RALRP, by applying the concept of pentafecta. Pentafecta consists of the five main outcomes in the postoperative period of RALRP: erectile dysfunction, urinary incontinence, postoperative complications, surgical margins and biochemical failure.
This phase 2 study is a single center, open-label study of SM04690 injected intraarticularly (IA) into the target knee (most painful) joint of moderately to severely symptomatic osteoarthritis (OA) subjects at a single dose of 0.07 mg SM04690 per 2 mL injection. This study will utilize three-dimensional spoiled gradient recalled (3D-SPGR) pulse sequence magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), radiographs and patient reported outcomes (PROs) to evaluate the safety and efficacy of SM04...
This study evaluates a second review of ultrasound images of breast lesions using an interactive "deep learning" (or artificial intelligence) program developed by Samsung Medical Imaging, to see if this artificial intelligence will help the Radiologist make more accurate diagnoses.
The goal of this clinical trial is to study the feasibility and efficacy of anti-CD19/BCMA bispecific chimeric antigen receptors (CARs) T cell therapy for relapsed and refractory multiple myeloma.
Ocular trauma are a real public health issue. According to WHO, it is estimates at 750,000 hospital admissions per year in the world for ocular trauma, including 200,000 for open globe injuries in the world. Consequences can be severe with a significant number of definitive low vision or blindness which can lead to professionnal reclassifications for active patients. However, no study exists on professional consequences of those ocular trauma. Some studies showed that fonctionn...
The purpose of this Cohort Treatment Plan is to allow access to alpelisib for eligible patients diagnosed with hormone receptor positive, advanced or metastatic breast cancer harboring a phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K)CA mutation. The patient's Treating Physician should follow the suggested treatment guidelines and comply with all local health authority regulations.
Preterm birth, or birth before 37 weeks gestation, is increasingly common, occurring in 8% of pregnancies in Canada. Preterm birth is associated with many health complications, particularly when the birth happens before 29 weeks'gestation. At this gestational age, the lungs are not fully developed and it is not uncommon for infants to have problems breathing at the time of birth. One complication that can arise is when an infant stops breathing and needs to be resuscitated. Whe...
To evaluate the effect of a therapeutic education session on fever versus a control education session on household accidents on the behavior and knowledge of families concerning the management of infant fever between day 4 and day 7 after the intervention
Identify the unique associations of body shape to body composition and bone density indices in a pediatric population that represents the variance of sex, age, BMI-Z, and ethnicity found in the US population. Describe the precision and accuracy of optical scans to monitor change in body composition, bone density and metabolic health interventions. Estimate the level of association of optical to common health indicators including metabolic risk factors (glucose, triglyce...
The explosion of novel therapies targeting tumor mutations or immune molecules requests to define or better characterize the mutational profiles of tumors that are none or insufficiently explored so far. This is particularly the case for tumors arising in immune-suppressed individuals or environments which have been poorly, if any, analyzed so far with modern molecular methods. The goal of the translational research program, Ideation, is to define novel biomarkers such as the t...
This is a randomized non inferiority trial to evaluate the response to iron therapy in the standard daily vs. intermittent (three-four times a week on nonconsecutive days) groups by using hematological markers (hemoglobin, hematocrit, transferrin, hepcidin, ferritin, human soluble transferrin receptor). Our secondary outcome will be to evaluate gastrointestinal discomfort and adherence to therapy between two treatment groups.
