The autoimmune diabetes ACCELERATOR PREVENTION TRIAL (adAPT) is based on the accelerator hypothesis. The trial is designed to establish whether metformin, an oral hypoglycaemic agent that is known to reduce insulin demand in type 2 diabetes (T2D), can do the same in children at risk of type 1 diabetes (T1D) and thereby prevent disease. The first phase of adAPT will screen participants aged 5-16 years (inclusive) for islet-related autoantibodies who are the siblings or offsprin...
This project is designed to study the role of vitamin D supplementation on the honeymoon phase of type 1 diabetes in children who are on standardized insulin treatment. The results could lead to significant changes in the approach to the early phase of type 1 diabetes with a strong emphasis on prolonging the honeymoon phase by using vitamin D and maintaining these patients on a standardized insulin regimen. The overall goal is to reduce the long-term complications of type 1 dia...
Putting the limited use of titration algorithms in the context of escalating diabetes prevalence rates, strategies and tools are urgently needed to help both patients and primary care providers efficiently initiate and continue basal insulin therapy. Basel insulin is considered to be the appropriate strategy after oral diabetic agent failure. This project could set the stage for the need for a blood glucose meter with built-in algorithms designed to support decision making by p...
This project is a community based participatory research collaboration that will enable increased informed decision making (IDM) for prostate cancer screening in Hispanic and African-American men. This will be done through the development of an educational program implemented in the communities of El Paso, Texas and Columbia, South Carolina to provide accurate information to men regarding prostate cancer screening in order to enable them to make informed decisions.
The incidence of cystic fibrosis related diabetes (CFRD) has risen significantly as patients' survival improves. Early diagnosis of CFRD is crucial to prevent the unnecessary deterioration of lung function and nutritional status, both of which affect the patient's overall survival. The oral glucose tolerance test (OGGT) is the accepted method for detecting CFRD. The Cystic Fibrosis Trust guidelines (2004) recommend that patients with CF over the age of twelve years should be sc...
Colorectal cancer is a preventable and/or a treatable cancer, but at least 43% of the United States population is not up-to-date with screening. Although 90% of colorectal cancer screening is done using colonoscopy, most other countries use fecal immunochemical tests, reserving colonoscopy for those with a positive fecal immunochemical test. This project will provide the foundation for a paradigm shift for colorectal cancer screening in the United States by identifying how well...
The project focuses on investigating problematic medication use, especially overuse of potentially addictive drugs among the elderly. The investigators aim firstly to develop and validate instruments for detecting and describing behavioral aspects and consequences of dependence on, and misuse of, prescription medication among elderly. In addition to evaluating diagnostic utility of screening instruments, the investigators aim to identify and report characteristics, risk...
Diabetes in pregnancy or gestational diabetes (GDM) is a condition that, if left untreated, may lead to complications for the mother and her baby. It is still not known which is the best method to diagnosis GDM. The goal of this study is to compare three well-accepted methods for diagnosis of GDM (using either 75 g or 100 g in the glucose tolerance test) and determine which method is the easiest and least expensive to use in relation to the reference method used over the last...
The primary objective of this project is to examine the impact of a continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) intervention on health and psychological outcomes in young children with type 1 diabetes (T1D).
The purpose of this study is to demonstrate that pharmacists working collaboratively with physicians and other providers in an ambulatory care setting can improve glucose, blood pressure, and lipid control, as well as improve quality of life, adherence to screening and general preventative measures.
This is a randomized trial of an educational intervention to reduce the risk of diabetes among urban American Indian women
The Canadian Australasian Randomized Trial of Screening Kidney Transplant Candidates for Coronary Artery Disease (CARSK) will test the hypothesis that eliminating the regular use of non-invasive screening tests for CAD AFTER waitlist activation is not inferior to regular (i.e., annual) screening for CAD during wait-listing for the prevention of Major Adverse Cardiac Events. Secondary analyses will assess the impact of screening on the rate of transplantation, and the relative c...
The prevalence of diabetes among inpatients in medical wards, surgery and intensive care units in Italy is approximatively 12-25%. The management of in hospital diabetes and hyperglycemia is complex and requires a specific training for physicians and nurses in non-specialist settings. The overall project aims at the implementation of a "best practice" model of care for hospitalized diabetic patients in non-specialist settings.
Therefore, for early detection of hypothyroidism in children with type 1 diabetes, it is suggested to measure anti-thyroid antibodies and thyroid stimulating hormone at disease onset and in yearly intervals after the age of 12 yr. Furthermore, the International Society for Pediatric and Adolescent Diabetes Consensus Clinical Guidelines recommend the screening of thyroid function by analysing circulating thyroid stimulating hormone at the diagnosis of diabetes and, thereafter ev...
This research includes the evaluation of a checklist and on-site screening devices to pre-select drivers suspected of being drug-impaired. The reliability of a limited number of promising on-site screening devices will be investigated. The devices tested will have to be promising regarding both reliability and practicality. In addition to the scientific evaluation of the checklist and the oral fluid screening devices, the time consumption of the selection procedure as a whole (...
People who might have prediabetes or unrecognized diabetes will be screened for these problems at an outpatient visit. For screening, they will take a sugary drink containing 50 grams of glucose, and have a blood sample one hour later. The blood sample will be tested for glucose and A1c (a measure of blood glucose over the previous two months). They will also fill out questionnaires that ask about their health history and how they would feel about exercising and trying to lo...
A first- degree family history of colorectal cancer (CRC) or adenoma before age 65 is associated with a high risk of CRC. For these high-risk subjects, the French 2013 recommendations advise colonoscopy screening, but participation is insufficient (26-54%).The purpose of this project is to propose, through association of multidisciplinary research teams (public health, sociology, linguistic), actors on the field (physicians, organized screening facilities), and decision makers,...
The goal of the Twine / University of Michigan Diabetes Quality Improvement Initiative is to improve diabetes care quality using real time feedback with continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) and dietary coaching for lower carbohydrate consumption in a high-risk sub-cohort of outpatients with type 2 diabetes (T2D).
RATIONALE: Screening tests may help doctors detect abnormal cells in the cervix early and plan effective treatment. PURPOSE: Screening trial to compare different types of screening tests used to detect cervical neoplasia.
The study is designed to see if stress heart imaging can be used as a screening exam in patients with diabetes and risk factors of developing of coronary artery disease and experiencing future cardiac events.
The project proposes to fill gaps in the understanding of disparities in healthcare and primary care provider (PCP) quality from the perspectives of adult Medicare beneficiaries with disabilities compared to those without disabilities. Studies document racial/ethnic, economic, and education-related disparities, but little is known about healthcare disparities related to disability.
The goal of this study is to evaluate the implementation and effectiveness of an intervention to improve diabetes self-management, emotional distress and metabolic control among adults with type 2 diabetes receiving care in primary care practices throughout New York City. The program will be implemented by the New York City Department of Health, through their Primary Care Improvement Project.
Diabetes is common, it is expensive, and it is a chronic condition. Estimates put the prevalence of diabetes at almost 20 percent in VA patients. Poorly controlled diabetes leads to a number of complications including cardiovascular disease, blindness, amputation, and end stage renal disease. Adherence to medication regimens (as well as lifestyle factors such as diet and exercise) is important to achieve diabetes care goals. Adherence to recommended care is related at least in ...
Care coordination, disease management, geriatric care management, and preventive programs for chronically ill older adults vary in design and their impact on long-term health outcomes is not well established. This study investigates whether a community-based nursing intervention improves longevity and impact on cardiovascular risk factors in this population. The results reflect the impact of one of the study sites (Health Quality Partners) selected by the Centers for Medicare...
