Fatigue is a major concern during and after cancer therapy with severe impact on quality of life. Yet, sound comparable data on fatigue prevalence, severity, and impact on daily life across different tumor entities is lacking. Furthermore, little is known about the current state of screening, counselling and treatment of fatigue. Thus, the FiX-Study aims to assess such data to identify patient groups with especial need for an improved fatigue management and treatment. A...
All women with severe preeclmapsia were given a loading dose of 4 g magnesium sulfate IV followed by the maintenance dose of 1 g/h infusion till the delivery. After delivery, women who received magnesium sulfate for 8 hours or more were randomly divided into two groups: Group I ( 50 cases) No magnesium sulfate received postpartum and Group II ( 50 cases)—magnesium sulfate infusion is given for conventional 24 h postpartum at a rate of 1 gm per hour
To investigate the efficacy of posaconazole as prophylaxis antifungal agent in aplastic anemia / hypoplastic myelodysplastic syndrome (AA/hMDS) patients undergoing antithymocyte globulin (ATG) treatment
The purpose of this study is to explore which mode is effective in the management of intractable chronic pain, the high-density stimulation or the conventional stimulation, in patients who undergo SCS implantation after successful pre-implantation SCS trial.
This project aims to investigate the safety and effectiveness of gasless single-port laparoscopic-assisted radical resection (GSLR) in the treatment of rectal carcinoma.
Randomized cross over trial investigating the effect of intensive attending supervision of residents caring for inpatients on the medical service on both patient safety and educational outcomes. Hypothesis: increased attending supervision would improve patient safety and resident education.
Glaucoma is the most frequent cause of irreversible & preventable blindness worldwide, affecting about 2% of the world's population in people over 40. The major risk factor, and only treatable factor in glaucoma, is increased intraocular pressure (IOP). IOP reduction can slow or arrest the progression of vision loss. Current treatment consists of drops administered on a daily basis with unfortunately low patient compliance, increasing the chance of blindness. Eximore's ...
Hip fracture is a global public health problem. The postoperative mortality and disability rate of hip fracture is high, and early surgery is still the most effective treatment method, but these patients are often associated with concurrent heart and lung and other organ dysfunction, anesthesia and surgery are extremely risky, mainly associated with high incidence of complications in the pulmonary and cardiovascular system, and anesthesia plays a vital role in ensuring that the...
The purpose of this study is to better understand the contribution of sympathetic vasoconstriction to impaired insulin-mediated vasodilation and subsequently insulin-mediated glucose uptake. The investigators will test the hypothesis that removal of sympathetic vasoconstriction can result in improvement in insulin-mediated vasodilation and subsequently sensitivity to insulin-mediated glucose uptake.
The investigators have developed co-registered transvaginal photoacoustic and ultrasound (US) imaging techniques that allow them to visualize ovarian tumor structure and functional changes simultaneously, which may potentially reveal early tumor angiogenesis development or residual tumors after systemic treatment that is not available by US alone. The ability to detect early angiogenesis changes, as well as tumor morphology changes using a non-invasive imaging modality will gre...
The purpose of this research study is to investigate how the brain and motor behavior changes in individuals with dystonia and other involuntary movement disorders and healthy individuals over time with exercise training.
The computerized cognitive rehabilitation therapy will be used to treat amphetamine-type stimulant (ATS) addiction.
LAY SUMMARY: The diagnosis and treatment of pediatric cancer is a significant stressor for adolescents and their families . Although most adolescents cope well with their cancer diagnosis, many experience emotional distress. A small proportion of those diagnosed with cancer will experience more intense mental distress, such as depression, anxiety, or anger. The practice of yoga may be a possible way of treating the negative emotional symptoms experienced by these adolesc...
There is a consensus that vitamin D deficiency is a public health issue because of its implications in several diseases including, osteopenia, osteomalacia, heart disease, diabetes (type I and II), inflammatory diseases, multiple sclerosis and rheumatoid arthritis. Studies in sunny countries have shown that vitamin D deficiency is a common phenomenon, despite the abundance of sunlight in these places, which shows the influence of diet, skin pigmentation, cultural habits and als...
The objective of this study is to investigate the possible association between 60 SNPs related to obesity, metabolism and cardiovascular disease with BMI, intestinal microbiota and adherence to the Mediterranean diet in a cohort of children and adolescents from the southeast of Spain.
The study is a prospective, observational study of adult, non-cardiac, non-obstetric, elective surgical patients conducted over a period of one week. This large-scale clinical audit aims to assess the incidence rates of anaemia and hyperglycaemia amongst elective surgical patients in the Western Cape. A study such as this is essential in the assessment of the incidence rates of abnormal fasting blood glucose levels and reduce the risk of perioperative complications for patients...
Prostate cancer is common but can commonly be cured with surgery, however, this often leads to a loss of erections, because the nerves controlling erections run in the outer coverings of the prostate. Nerve sparing, where the outer layers of the prostate are peeled off, increases post-operative potency, but also increases the risk of cancer being left behind and the need for radiotherapy, which renders the men impotent, even if they had nerve sparing surgery. A new technique ca...
The purpose of this study is to see whether the presence of night-time breathing disturbances ("sleep-disordered breathing") in pregnant women is related to fetal growth patterns. The hypothesis is that fetal growth slows in the 3rd trimester in women with sleep-disordered breathing. Use of a nighttime breathing therapy called auto-PAP could minimize the slowing in fetal growth.
Determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and toxicity profile of the combination of cyclophosphamide and ATO (Arsenic Trioxide) in subjects with relapsed refractory AML. Determine the efficacy of ATO and cyclophosphamide in this population, as defined by response rate, response duration, event-free survival (EFS) and overall survival (OS). Determine the number of transplant-eligible subjects who are successfully bridged to stem cell transplantation or donor lymphocyte infus...
The aims of the current study are: 1) to pilot a manualized intervention (INSPIRE - Inspiring Nutritious Selections and Positive Intentions Regarding Eating and Exercise) to determine feasibility and acceptability, and 2) to evaluate the preliminary effectiveness of INSPIRE on physical and psychological variables.
Stump and phantom pain after amputation are common, but the responsible mechanisms are still not clarified. It has been suggested that phantom limb pain can be reduced by regional anaesthesia and in several recent studies, pain was reduced following intrathecal and intraforaminal blocks. In this study, the investigators want to investigate if spontaneous and evoked pain in amputees will be relieved by regional nerve blocks involving the damaged nerves.
It is estimated that > 200 million patients in the world undergo surgery each year of which approximately 10 million will suffer from a myocardial injury in the perioperative period. Mortality is high in patients with myocardial injury since it often goes undiagnosed and management is unclear. In contrast to myocardial infarction diagnosed in the emergency room (non-surgical patient) where treatment is well established today, patients suffering from a perioperative myocardial i...
