In the IMPACT project, the investigators want to improve adherence and commitment to treatment.
In diabetics there is an abnormally increased production of AGEs due to hyperglycemia. An association was shown between AGE measured by biopsy (invasive) and DE patients with diabetes (increase of AGE level in the corpora cavernosa). To date no studies have explored the link between DE and the measure of AGE by a non-invasive method of Auto-fluorescence (AF) Skin (AGEReaderTM). If the hypothesis of an association between DE and AGE measured by AF was checked, screening f...
This study was based on baseline data derived from a large prospective study called the Suwon Project (SP), a cohort comprising nonrandom convenience samples of elderly people, all of whom are ethnic Koreans aged over 60 years.
For people with Type 1 Diabetes, blood glucose control is achieved by matching insulin doses directly to the amount of carbohydrate consumed. We are looking at new ways to help our patients with type 1 diabetes manage their diabetes control more effectively. We are testing if "Diabetes Interactive Diary" (DID), a novel programme designed to be used on a mobile phone, can represent an important tool in carbohydrate counting while avoiding the use of complex calculations and in d...
Gestational Diabetes Mellitus (GDM) is one of the most common medical complications of pregnancy. Neonatal hypoglycemia is a common and well described complication for infants born to mothers with GDM and diabetes mellitus (DM) and studies have linked intrapartum maternal glucose levels with neonatal hypoglycemia. While guidelines exist to guide practitioners in how to best manage intrapartum maternal glucose levels among Type I and and Type II DM, there is a paucity of data gu...
Diabetes mellitus is a widespread disease with increasing prevalence worldwide. Patients with diabetes can develop multiple late complications such as neuropathy, retinopathy, nephropathy and cardiovascular comorbidities. So far, there are no reliable predictive tools or markers to estimate if, when and to what extent a patient with diabetes develops late complications. For the patients quality of life and for health economic reasons an improved risk assessment would be desirab...
The goal of this project is to develop and pilot test a community-based integrated care model to improve the prevention, early detection and treatment of child mental health problems that is replicable, effective, and sustainable. Project procedures include child mental health screening, on-site brief mental health interventions, referral to specialty mental health, use of co-located child psychiatrist, detection of need for primary care in specialty mental health program.

Atrial Fibrillation(AF) is one of the most common abnormal heart rhythms and approximately 3% of the general population have AF. The prevalence increases with age of the population and is increased in people with diabetes, hypertension and those who are overweight. AF is a major risk factor for stroke; people with AF are five times more likely to suffer an ischaemic stroke; however this can be reduced significantly with appropriate interventions which depends on detection of th...
Compared with the early diagnosis rate and the mortality rate between the patients of nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) from the screening group and the control group, new screening protocol is conducted into high-risk population in Guangdong Province, China. Meanwhile, we also perform epidemiological surveys of the screening population to acquire the baseline information. Through analyzing the risk factors, this study can provide a population-based prospective evidences to better...
Primary Objective: To measure the association between a parental history of diabetes and the odds of an offspring being Type 1 diabetics. Secondary Objectives: - To document the profile of Type 1 diabetes patients. - To document the glycemic parameters (Fasting blood glucose [FBG] and glycosylated hemoglobin [HbA1c]) of Type 1 diabetes. - To capture the current therapeutic management.
The purpose of this study is to compare the effectiveness of two different interventions to improve adherence to diabetes medications among patients with diabetes and poor metabolic control.
This is a multicenter randomized, double-blind, placebo- and active-controlled (liraglutide; Victoza®), parallel-group, clinical trial of MK-8521 in participants with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) with inadequate glycemic control while on a stable dose of metformin (≥1000 mg/day). The trial will include a 1-week screening period; a 2-week single-blind placebo run-in period; a 12-week placebo- and active-controlled treatment period; and a 14-day post-treatment visit ...
The objective is to evaluate the efficacy of a web-trained workforce of Hispanic and African American diabetes peer mentors delivering Diabetes Self-Management Support (DSMS) to patients with poorly-controlled diabetes.
People with type 2 diabetes experience heart failure more often than do people without diabetes. This may be due to increased stiffness in the heart as a result of diabetes. This study will examine whether exenatide, a medication used to treat diabetes, may have beneficial effects on the heart in people with type 2 diabetes and heart failure.
The purpose of this study is to determine whether a newly developed patient education document concerning colorectal cancer screening will be better understood and have greater effects on patient knowledge of and motivation for screening than a standard educational document.
The purpose of this study is to determine of the effectiveness of an Internet based Diabetes Self-Management workshop for people with type II diabetes. Half of the people who complete the workshop will be invited to continue their education by participating in a email discussion group. Thus, we will be able to learn both the efficacy of the original program as well as its efficacy when reinforced by the discussion group. Diabetes is a disease that must be managed day by day ...
Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease( NAFLD) is common in patients with type 2 diabetes. Empagliflozin, an FDA-approved oral medication used to treat type 2 diabetes, has been shown to reduce production and deposition of fat in the liver in animal experiments. There is little published evidence that this is so in Asian patients with type 2 diabetes. The investigators designed this pilot study to determine if use of empagliflozin for 6 months in patients with type 2 diabetes can im...
The overall objective of the study is to assess whether complete avoidance of cow's milk proteins, for at least the first 6 months of life, prevents type 1 diabetes (insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus, IDDM) in genetically susceptible children who have a mother, biological father or sibling affected by type 1 diabetes.
Given that cervical cancer is the second most frequent cancer among women in french guiana the aim of the study was to determine the screening rate among women living in French Guiana. Cervical smears are read in 2 laboratories which allowed us to compute screening rates per 100 women-years. overall the screening activity was 23.5-25.8 smears per 100 women-years. between 2006 and 2011 54% of women were screened. These baseline figures will allow to evaluate present efforts to i...
