Due to the hypobaric hypoxia during air travel, some patients with Cystic Fibrosis (CF) need supplemental oxygen during air travel. The study aims to evaluate if adding exercise desaturation to the pre-flight evaluation will help predict requirements for in-flight supplemental oxygen.
There is reason to believe that hyperbaric oxygen administered immediately prior to radiotherapy will prove beneficial for this cancer type and stage. The basis for this hypothesis is a review of several decades of published work, the conclusion of a recent (2018) Cochrane Review, and results of a Phase I trial.
The purposes of this study are: (1) to determine the kinematics, kinetics, and muscle co-activation ratio of level walking and stair negotiation under three different conditions (shoes only, shoes embedded 3D printed insoles, and shoes embedded 5-degree lateral wedges), (2) to build a detailed patient-specific knee model via MR images and musculoskeletal model, then, evaluate the compressive forces acting on the medial aspect of the knee during level walking and stair negotiati...
Trial for IBD patients non-responsive to biological drugs, using medical app reminding patients to take their physician-prescribed medications
Major surgery can lead to postoperative disturbances in sleep patterns with subjective deterioration of sleep quality according to patients' reports as well as objective alterations of sleep architecture, as recorded by polysomnography Factors implicated in postoperative sleep disturbances include but are not limited to the severity of the surgical procedure, the neuroendocrine response to surgery, inadequate treatment of postoperative pain and external factors interfering with...
Patients new to a rheumatology practice will be asked if they want to consent to their blood sample, medical records, and hand/foot x-rays (with sharp scores) for the analysis and correlation with the diagnosis they will receive from the rheumatologist.
This study aims to evaluate the safety, tolerablity, and immunogenicity of VARIVAX™ vaccine in healthy Russians aged 12 months and older.
McArdle disease, glycogen storage disease type V, is a rare metabolic disease. Affected individuals are unable to utilize sugar stored as glycogen in muscle. We hypothesize that a modified ketogenic diet could be a potential treatment option, by providing ketones as alternative fuel substrates for working muscle. In this open interventional pilot study we wish to investigate 3 different modified ketogenic diet regimes, to find an optimal composition of a modified ketogenic di...
By forming the foundation of a delivery system that integrates primary care (PC) and rheumatology, this initiative strives to strengthen the roles of both primary care and rheumatology practices as they co-manage patients in a quality care delivery system. Importantly, it strives to fill an unmet need, the rapid evaluation by Primary Care providers; the appropriate and timely referral of inflammatory disease patients to a rheumatologist; and the implementation of early aggressi...
Suspension laryngoscopy is realised during apnea. In effect, surgeons are in the mouth of the patient and we can't have access at the aiways. So we like to use a Transnasal Humidified Rapid-Insufflation Ventilatory Exchange (THRIVE) to increase time of apnea and decrease the impact of oxygen desaturation.
The purpose of this study is to find out what patients consider when deciding whether or not to receive adjuvant treatment, and how patients feel about their decision after one year.
Bowel cancer is one of the most common cancers and the best method of diagnosing it is through endoscopic examination of the bowel (colonoscopy). Pre-cursors of bowel cancer are called polyps which can be detected and removed at the time of the colonoscopy. This reduces the chance of developing bowel cancer. There are different types of polyp ranging from completely harmless to those that may develop into cancer over time. Advances in technology mean more polyps are being dete...
This is a prospective, single blind, two arm, randomized, controlled trial to test the efficacy of an oral care protocol to treat oral mucositis (OM) in patients receiving radiation (RT) or chemoradiation (chemoRT) for head and neck cancer. This trial will also measure salivary proinflammatory cytokines, and evaluate other clinical effects of the intervention during cancer therapy. In addition, oral mucosal swabs will be collected for the future characterization of changes in t...

The total study duration will be approximately 8 months including the enrolment period of approximately 7 months and the patient participation duration of 1 month or 4 weeks. Each p...
The objective of this study is to evaluate the maximum tolerated (MTD) of vorinostat used in combination with low-dose azacitidine after allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation (alloHCT) for prevention of relapse of childhood myeloid malignancies.
Safety and tolerability of neoadjuvant nivolumab for locally advanced resectable oral cancer, combined with [18F]BMS-986192 / [18F]-FDG PET imaging and immunomonitoring for response prediction
The purpose of this clinical study is to validate the oxygen saturation (SpO2) accuracy of various pulse oximetry systems and sensors (new designs and/or reprocessed) during non-motion conditions as compared to arterial blood samples, drawn in the normal course of patient care, assessed by CO-Oximetry in neonates (0-1 month old) and infants (2 months - 1 year old). The primary end goal is to provide supporting documentation for the SpO2 accuracy of these pulse oximetry systems....
Kava is a dietary supplement on the US market and is experiencing a resurgence of its use. Its pharmacokinetic information, however, is lacking which is important for its future effective usage as a dietary supplement or potentially as a botanical therapeutics. This phased trial, based on the recommendation from NIH, is to collect pharmacokinetic data of kava in healthy subjects.
