In degenerative cervical myelopathy (DCM) the dynamics of disease progression and the outcome after surgical decompression vary inter individually and do not necessarily correlate with radiological findings. By better characterization of the underlying pathophysiology this study aims to improve diagnostic power in DCM using Navigated transcranial magnetic stimulation (nTMS).
Special opportunities exist in vulnerable populations with chronic conditions to better understand what life course factors can facilitate attainment of optimal health and development. One such opportunity arises in the life of an adolescent or young adult when they transition their care from pediatric to adult health providers and systems, referred to as "health care transition". Experts generally agree that health care transition is often unsuccessful and associated with a va...
Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva (FOP) is a rare, severely disabling disease characterized by heterotopic ossification (HO) often associated with painful, recurrent episodes of soft tissue swelling (flare-ups) that lead to ankyloses of major joints with cumulative and irreversible loss of movement and disability.
The investigators aim to study the prevalence of adverse reactions of anti-tuberculosis (TB) drugs in latent tuberculosis infection (LTBI), and determine the risk factors of anti-TB drug-related toxicity in LTBI in Korean health care workers(HCWs).
This is an exploratory cluster randomized controlled trial to evaluate the effect of a kefir beverage, enriched with prebiotics components, on immunity, lipid profile and adiposity in a population-based study, using the family as the intervention unit.
The objective of the study is to determine whether poor control of asthma is related to an emotional deficit such as alexithymia. The hypothesis is that there is a correlation between the severity of asthma, its control, and the degree of emotional deficits.
This pilot study will explore whether treatment of eosinophilic inflammation in the esophagus is associated with an improved distensibility of the esophagus. Furthermore, previous studies of the esophagus using EndoFlip only measured distensibility of the distal esophagus, specifically the distal esophagus and esophagogastric junction. Eosinophilia in EoE has been demonstrated to affect both upper, middle and lower esophagus. The aim is to measure distensibility both proximal a...
The purpose of this study is to use an existing, unique clinical cohort: the longitudinal cohort of younger (21-40 years) and elderly (>65 years) subjects whose yearly influenza vaccine responses have been studied extensively since 2007, to gain molecular and cellular mechanistic insights into the impaired vaccine responses in the elderly.
The purpose of this study is to validate the method of analysing Positron Emission Tomography (PET) images to assess lung inflammation. Development of novel therapeutic drugs requires a biomarker which is sensitive to the underlying disease and can respond to therapeutic interventions. PET is a potential imaging biomarker which can target molecular and cellular processes. There is currently no standardised method of analysing PET lung data and a lack of validation for the exist...
Flow disruption is a new endovascular approach for treatment of both ruptured and unruptured intracranial aneurysms, which involves placement of an endosaccular device (WEB) which modifies the blood flow at the level of the neck and induces intraaneurysmal thrombosis. The WEB was designed to treat wide-neck bifurcation aneurysms. This observational study will collect data about the routine practice in one center of using the WEB in ruptured and unruptured intracranial aneurysms...
A Study of Everolimus Plus Exemestane in Chinese Postmenopausal Women With Estrogen Receptor Positive, Locally Advanced, Recurrent, or Metastatic Breast Cancer After Recurrence or Progression on Non-steroidal Aromatase Inhibitor
This study aims at evaluating the safety and efficacy of everolimus plus exemestane in Chinese postmenopausal women with ER+ HER2- ABC after recurrence or progression on letrozole or anastrozole. The rationale of this study is based on the following: - Proven everolimus activity in breast cancer in combination with exemestane - Efficacy and manageable safety profile of everolimus in combination with exemestane in the Asian subpopulation of BOLERO-2
The purpose of this study is to expand the knowledge on the efficacy and safety of emapalumab (previously known as NI-0501) as a treatment for primary haemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH) patients, with special focus on long-term outcome and quality of life assessments. Emapalumab can be administered as the first-line therapy, to patients not previously treated with the current standard of care, or can be given to patients who have either failed or were unable to tolerate ...
The goal of this randomized controlled trial is to determine the efficacy of a digital diabetes prevention program for improving weight, glucose control, and secondary risk factors among people with prediabetes compared to an enhanced standard care plus wait-list control. Exploratory assessments of implementation facilitators and barriers will also be completed to determine strategies for integrating external diabetes-prevention interventions within healthcare settings.
This study evaluates the analgesic effect of Omnitram and tramadol during concurrent administration of paroxetine. Paroxetine administration is expected to diminish the analgesic effect of tramadol, but not Omnitram. Each participant will receive paroxetine before and during treatment with Omnitram, tramadol, and placebo.
Nowadays, augmented reality (AR) has gained attention but little is known concerning its repercussion in individuals when considering some mental and physiological aspects. Therefore, the aim of this study was to investigate the effects of AR glasses on some cognitive and physiological functions in an attempt to determine its safety for workers.

The study is a randomised, double-blind, placebocontrolled, parallel dose-response study with four study arms. Sixty subjects will be randomly allocated to consume study products containing varying amounts of plant sterol (PS)oxidation products (POP) or placebo for 6 weeks.
Sepsis is the body-wide response to infection. People who develop sepsis have an increased risk of dying. One of the greatest challenges in sepsis is determining what is the pathogen (bacteria or virus for example) in a timely manner so the most specific antibiotics can be given to treat the infection. Patients presenting to the hospital and the intensive care unit often have lung infections. In this study the investigators plan to develop new techniques to rapidly (less than 6...
