Brain Effects of Memory Training in Early Psychosis

Background: People with psychosis show profound deficits in memory. A new cognitive remediation therapy using an app on a computer or mobile phone to improve memory has been effective in this population, but the neurobiological effects are unknown. Objectives: 1) To use functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to examine brain changes during a working memory task before and after a 12 hour memory training intervention on a computer or mobile phone, 2) To use diffusion tens...


Primary Care Patients With Depression for Internet-Based Social Support

The investigators will identify primary care patients with depression who state they have access to the Internet and are willing to consider treatment for depression. In the primary care office they will be given one of three interventions introducing them to the I...

An Exploratory Open Label Study of Adjunctive L-lysine Treatment in Patients With Schizophrenia

The objective of the present study was to investigate the possibility of using L-lysine, an amino acid that occurs naturally in food and which interferes with nitric oxide (NO) production, for the treatment of schizophrenia. L-lysine, 6 g/day, was administered to ten patients with schizophrenia as an add-on treatment to conventional antipsychotic treatment. The study was designed as a single-blinded, cross-over study where patients were randomly assigned to initial treatment wi...

Plasma microRNA Profiling as First Line Screening Test for Lung Cancer Detection: a Prospective Study

In the present project we propose a large prospective study in heavy smokers volunteers based on plasma miRNA profiling to assess its efficacy as a first line screening test for lung cancer detection. The study will be articulated in different phases: i) analysis of 1000 plasma samples of disease-free smokers already collected in our biological repository in the last two years ii) de-novo enrollment of 4000 smoking volunteers, collection of their blood samples and inclus...

Assessing Knowledge of Dietary Sodium Content and Implementation of Color-Coded Cue Cards and Dietary Sodium

Develop an evidence-based intervention aimed at patients with heart failure (HF) using color-coded cue cards to assist in the selection of foods appropriate to their sodium restricted diet. The milligram per serving sodium content of foods will be assigned color-coded green/yellow/red designation according to very low/moderate/high as identified by the United States Food and Drug Administration's definitions of sodium content. Assess patient knowledge of foods with sodium cont...

SIGA-246 to Treat Smallpox

This study will test an experimental antiviral drug called SIGA-246 for use against the smallpox virus (variola). Although smallpox has been universally eradicated, it could possibly be brought back as a bioweapon. In the event of a smallpox attack, it would be best to have an antiviral medication in addition to the smallpox vaccine. SIGA-246 has shown to have activity against other viruses from the same family (orthopoxvirus) that smallpox belongs to. Healthy volunteers...

Are the Combined Oral Contraceptive Pills Needed for Management of the Simple Ovarian Cysts in Reproductive Women?

Women will be managed by either of the two modalities and will be followed up by transvaginal ultrasound monthly for three successive months to evaluate the size and location of the functional ovarian cyst (follicular), to compare the effect of different modalities of management whether remission, regression, progression or persistence of functional ovarian cyst. The women will be assigned randomly to either study group to take oral contraceptive pills or to control grou...

Safety Study of Avian Flu Vaccine

This study will determine if an experimental avian flu (bird flu) vaccine is safe, whether it has side effects and if it can stimulate an immune response in people. The vaccine being tested in this study is made from DNA (genetic material) that codes for an influenza protein called hemagglutinin 5 (H5), which is based on the protein from the bird flu virus. The study will determine if the body creates resistance or immunity to the H5 protein. The hope is that an immune response...

Optimization of Collection Methods for Studies of the Human Microbiota

Background: The human microbiome is the microbial genes found in and on the human body. Scientists study the microbiome because it is related to many health conditions. The way samples are collected and handled can greatly affect microbiome study findings. Researchers want to learn more about how collection methods affect these studies. Objectives: To compare oral and fecal collection methods with other methods. To test the effect of new DNA technology using thes...

Effect of Diagnostic Imaging Utilization Reports

Diagnostic imaging (DI) tests (for example, x-ray tests, ultrasounds, CT scans, or MRIs) are used by health care providers to help diagnose patient illness, but decisions regarding when these tests should be ordered are subjective. As a result, some physicians order these tests more than others. Ordering rates between clinicians seeing similar kinds of patients have been shown to be considerably different, suggesting that many of the tests are unnecessary. DI currently accounts...

Respiratory Syncytial Virus Human Challenge in Healthy Adult Volunteers

Background: - Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) can cause respiratory infections. Some of these can be life-threatening, especially in young children, the elderly, and people with weak immune systems. Researchers want to study RSV infection in a hospital setting in healthy adults. They want to use what they learn to test new treatments or vaccines in the future. Objectives: - To study how the body responds to RSV. Eligibility: - Healthy volunteers ages 18...

Pilot RCT to Test Effectiveness of the ACE4 (Activity Challenge- 4 Areas) for Depression and Anxiety

Behavioral activation (BA) is a low cost, evidence-based intervention that can be effective in treating depression and anxiety. We have developed a behavioural activation card game for clients receiving treatment through the Crisis Team and Traditional Case Management (TCM) in Kingston, ON. The game is designed to integrate behavioural activation tools into daily life while receiving points for completion of the each Activity Challenge, which are divided into 4 areas (ACE4), wi...

Evaluation of Effectiveness of Pharmaceutical Care on the Adherence of HIV-Positive Patients to Antiretroviral Therapy

INTRODUCTION: Studies prove that the pharmaceutical care (PC) increases the adherence to the antiretroviral; thus, they increase the undetectable viral load. The viral load diminishes, and the prevalence of undetectable viral load increases, as the levels of adherence to the treatment increase, being in general necessary high adhesion to reach the effectiveness therapeutic. Increasing the adherence levels, it increases the surviving chances and quality of life and diminishes th...

Developing the Family Map: Looking at Communal Coping

Background: - Knowing one s family medical history is a part of staying healthy. Some health risks run in families, and knowing these risks can promote more healthy behavior. Different social and cultural factors may affect how family members share this information. Genetic risk information that is shared in one family may not be shared in the same way in another. This information may also be shared differently between spouses, siblings, or parents and children. It may...

Experimental Ebola Vaccine Trial

This study will test the safety of an experimental vaccine developed to protect against Ebola virus infection and to determine if the vaccine induces an immune response to the virus. The Ebola virus causes a disease called Ebola hemorrhagic fever. Symptoms begin with fever and muscle aches and progress to breathing problems, severe bleeding, kidney problems, and shock. The infection may be mild, but it can also lead to death. The vaccine used in this study is made from small pa...

Reducing Blood Culture Contamination:

Bloodstream infections cause significant morbidity and mortality and their prompt identification is an essential part of modern medicine. False positive results in blood cultures are primarily due to contaminants. It has been estimated that up to 50% of positive blood cultures represent contamination. These false positive cultures, at the microbiological laboratory level, require significant additional resources for workup. Additionally, they result in unnecessary antibiotic tr...

Online Grammatical Reasoning Training for Older Adults

The START study will investigate the impact of playing a Grammatical Reasoning brain training task on overall brain function (cognition) and day-to-day function in people over 50.
