"Antisynthetase syndrome (ASS) is one of the most severe inflammatory myopathy (IM), due to pulmonary involvement (interstitial lung disease, ILD). Until now, the most commonly used immunosuppresive therapy in Europe is Cyclophosphamide followed by different immunosuppressive drugs as maintenance therapy, including Azathioprine (and so called " European Strategy "). In the USA however, the first-line immunosuppressive treatment is Tacrolimus (so called " American Strategy "). N...

This is a randomized, open-label, positive-control, dose-escalation Phase 1b trial in 60 patients with chronic HBV infection to determine the safety, preliminary efficacy, and pharmacokinetics (PK) of QL-007 after administration over 28 days of multiple oral doses in a fasted state at the following planned dose levels: 200, 400, and then 600 mg.
End-stage renal disease (ESRD) is a world public health problem, with high morbidity and mortality. Cardiovascular disease is the main cause of mortality in ESRD; uremic toxin retention and inflammation are considered non-traditional risk factors, as they have an active role in atherosclerosis and vascular calcification pathogenesis in dialysis patients. Uremic toxins may be generated by internal protein metabolism, however, some toxins that can't be efficiently eliminated by ...
Open-label, single dose, dose-escalation clinical trial AAV9-CLN3 via intrathecal injection in NCL type 3 subjects

Researchers are trying to see if proactive identification and team based individualized care of cancer patients having emotional difficulties can improve quality of life relative to treatment as usual. Also, to see if proactive approaches to maintain wellness can prevent grief among breast cancer patients, experiencing no emotional difficulties relative to treatment as usual.
Osteoarthritis (OA) of the shoulder is a common debilitating condition affecting up to 5% of the general population and as much as 32% of patients over 60 years of age. Clinically, OA is diagnosed by a combination of symptoms, such as slow onset of progressively worsening shoulder pain and stiffness over months to years (often with a history of minor trauma), and pain with activity. Physical exam may show tenderness and swelling, muscle atrophy, and decreased range of motion. A...
Pancreatic cancer is regarded as "the king of cancer". It is extremely malignant, with a low sensibility to chemotherapy and radiotherapy, and a poor prognosis. Surgical treatment is very important for pancreatic cancer. Radical antegrade modular pancreatosplenectomy (RAMPS) is a standard method for treating pancreatic cancer at the body and tail of pancreas. In the same surgical approach, the investigators are going to compare and discuss the advantages of laparoscopic and ope...
The purpose of this research study is to understand how different kinds of exercise affect the human body and the health of the heart and lungs. For example, some people like to exercise continuously for relatively long periods of time while others like to exercise for short periods of time with rest periods in between. Children tend to exercise in frequent bouts of brief exercise interspersed with periods of rest. Also, some people like running or treadmill exercise while othe...
Coronary artery bypass grafting(CABG) is the golden standard for severe coronary artery disease(CAD), the current surgery strategy is mainly based on coronary angiography(CAG), but many trials of PCI have shown that visually stenosis in CAG may not have functional significance. The aim of this study is to investigate if the Quantitative Flow Ratio (QFR) can be adopted in CABG and achieve a better graft patency.
Emergency departments (ED) are becoming increasingly over-crowded, with patients facing prolonged waiting times. Therefore, a safe and rapid assessment that identifies patients with low severity that could be treated as outpatients is essential for improving the workflow within the ED. The rationale of this IDEAL study is to provide guidance to safely decrease the number of hospital admissions through identification of low risk patients with the biomarker MR-proADM. This...
The main purpose of this study is to investigate the safety of LY3405105 in participants with advanced cancer. The study has two parts (A and B). Participants will only enroll in one part.
Communication is one of the greatest health needs for high quality end-of-life (EOL) care in the intensive care unit (ICU), especially when patients are too ill to speak for themselves and rely on surrogates to make EOL decisions. Yet, there is no effective nursing intervention designed to improve communication between surrogates and clinicians. In order to enhance understanding of the surrogates' needs in the transition to EOL, this study will propose a new theory-grounded com...
This pro - and retrospective multicenter clinical epidemiological study studies the molecular genetic, host-derived and clinical determinants of glioblastoma patients with an overall survival of more than 5 years. The different research focusses are: - Identification of clinical parameters and patient characteristics / host-related factors in long-term survivors (Focus 1) - Identification of molecular tumor characteristics in long-term survivors (Focus 2) ...
One of the most effective drug in the primary prevention of cardiovascular disease is statins. The protective effects of statin on developement of cardiovascular disease has been demonstrated in elderly individuals aged over 75 years. Since side effects of statin are more common in elderly individuals than in younger individuals, clinical guidelines recommend that use of low intensity statin is considered in elderly individuals. However, there are few randomized clinical trials...
Berberine is extracted from Coptis (Huanglian) and Phellodendron Chinese (Huangbai), to make into berberine tablets.1 Recent studies have shown that berberine has beneficial effects on cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factors,1,2 such as lowering the risk of hyperlipidemia, diabetes, and hypertension.1 In a comprehensive systematic review and meta-analysis of 27 randomized controlled trials (RCTs), berberine effectively reduced low density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-c) (-0.6...
This project aims to investigate any difference of insertional torque strength for osteoporotic patients with preoperative 1-month teriparatide injections versus those without. The increased insertional torque of pedicle screws during surgery after only 1 month of teriparatide use has also been studied. However, the effect of teriparatide on vertebral body bone mineral density (BMD) prior to and after fusion surgery has not been studied. The effects on screw insertional torque ...
