Safety and Immunogenicity of an HIV Vaccine in Normal Adult Volunteers

This study will test the safety of an experimental vaccine against HIV infection and see if it causes an immune response to HIV. The vaccine is given by injection (shot) in the upper arm. It is made from DNA that codes for three HIV proteins. The DNA is inserted into an adenovirus that carries it into the muscle cells. The adenovirus normally can cause eye or upper respiratory infections, such as a cold; however, for the vaccine, it has been modified so that it cannot cause ill...

Dry Blood Spot Screening Test for Neonatal Cholestasis Patients

Cholestatic jaundice with multitude of causes affects approximately 1 in every 2,500 infants. Of the many conditions that cause neonatal cholestasis, the most commonly identifiable are biliary atresia (BA) (25%-35%). The incidence in Taiwan was 1.2 to 2.0 per 10,000 live birth. Prognosis and survival are improved if bile drainage is restored by a Kasai portoenterostomy. Stool color card was introduced to Taiwan in 2002 and national screening program was started in 2004. The rat...


Intervention to Reduce Diaper Need and Increase Use of Pediatric Preventive Care

Well-child care is the primary source of preventative health care for children. These visits provide an opportunity for physicians to assess an infant's biomedical health, development, and behavior, as well as help ensure timely immunizations, reduce the use of acute care services, and assess and family functioning. Yet, disparities in the utilization of pediatric care exist by race, ethnicity and income in the U.S., even despite high rates of overall access to primary care. In...

New Visual Acuity and Crowding Tests for Better Detection of Amblyopia

Amblyopia, or 'lazy eye', is the reduction in vision usually in one eye, due to abnormal visual development without organic cause. It is a preventable and leading cause of monocular vision loss (prevalence of around 3%) and increases lifetime risk of bilateral visual impairment from 10% in the general population, to 18% in amblyopes. In the UK, vision screening in children aims to detect amblyopia and other undiagnosed visual conditions. Laboratory research suggest that amblyo...

A Randomized Controlled Trial to Improve Medication Compliance Among Patients With Coronary Heart Disease

Coronary heart disease (CHD) is the most common cause of death in the United States. A common term for CHD is "blocked arteries." People with CHD or "blocked arteries" often have high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or diabetes. They are also more likely to suffer a heart attack. Many heart attacks could be prevented by taking medicines that control blood pressure, cholesterol, and diabetes. However, only 50%-60% of patients take their medicines as directed. Patients wh...

Haemodynamic and Geometric Factors in Atherosclerosis

The study is a prospective-observational, explorative single-centre cohort study aimed to examine the influence of hemodynamic and geometric parameters on the progression of atherosclerotic alterations in peripheral vessels (carotids, femoral artery). Atherosclerotic alterations (IMT, plaque volume) will be measured with a ultrasound (IMT measurements and 3D quantitative plaque volumetry) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Geometric parameters (e.g. carotid/femoral bifurcati...

NeSST2: The Development of a Noninvasive Short Synacthen Test

Recently there has been concern about the effect of inhaled steroids, routinely used in the treatment of asthma, on the body's ability to produce its natural stress hormone cortisol. Failure of adequate cortisol production in times of stress e.g. illness, can result in serious illness or death. Patients receiving longterm steroid treatment may have reduced levels of cortisol and not be able to produce adequate amounts in times of need, a process called adrenal suppression. Init...

Phase I Study of a Vaccine for Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS)

This study will test whether an experimental vaccine to protect against severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) is safe, causes any side effects, and causes an immune response. SARS affects the respiratory system, usually starting with fever and muscle aches. Patients may get a dry cough and have difficulty breathing. Infection may be mild, but it can lead to death. Vaccines contain substances from an infectious agent, such as a virus, that, when injected into a person'...

Thalamic Deep Brain Stimulation for Secondary Dystonia in Children and Young Adults

Dystonia is a movement disorder seen in both children and adults that is characterized by "sustained or intermittent muscle contractions causing abnormal, often repetitive, movements, postures, or both." Secondary dystonia is far more common in pediatric populations than primary dystonia, and far more recalcitrant to standard pharmacologic and surgical treatments including Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS). There exists a large unmet need to develop new therapeutics, treatment strat...
