OBJECTIVES: I. Compare growth hormone (GH) levels at baseline and after glucose suppression measured with both a polyclonal radioimmunoassay and a highly sensitive immunoradiometric assay (IRMA) in patients with acromegaly and normal volunteers. II. Measure the levels of IGF-I and its binding protein, IGFBP-3, in these cohorts. III. Determine any correlation between levels of IGF-I and IGFBP-3 and GH suppressibility as assessed by sensitive IRMA. IV. Determine if p...

Whether and to what extent burnout risk is actually higher in surgical specialties than in non-surgical specialties is still unknown. Little is also known about what factors are associated with burnout between surgical residents and non-surgical residents. In this context, the present study has a three-fold aim: 1) to measure the prevalence of burnout among a sample of Italian medical residents; 2) to contrast the prevalence of burnout and psychological distress in surgical res...
This is a phase II randomized controlled study of miglustat in adult and juvenile patients with Niemann-Pick Type C disease. Up to 42 patients will be randomised in a 2:1 ratio to either treatment with miglustat or to a non-treatment group. Both groups will follow an identical visit schedule.

A 3-month study was conducted in flood victims from affected villages in the Tumpat district, Kelantan. Participants were given either probiotic, Bifidobacterium infantis M63 (M-63 group) or no probiotics (control group) for three months. At baseline and 3-month, participants were assessed for thewater, sanitation and hygiene (WaSH) practices, abdominal symptoms, breath testing for hydrogen and methane to detect the presence of SIBO and also fecal samples for gut microbiota pro...

It is necessary and important to design tools to evaluate a central aspect of medical residents formation. The research group has been working with resident well-being since a few years in order to improve the global quality of the education and working environment. The investigators present a plan to develop and validate a tool to assess residents well-being. A tool designed with this characteristics would be of much importance to monitored as a security event, managed and act...
The study aimed to compare the changes in health and functional status between nursing home residents practicing GIA activity and a control group of residents, and to examine the changes in residents' abilities to participate in GIA activity.
This research study is being conducted to find out whether Trappsol® Cyclo™, an experimental treatment for people with Niemann-Pick disease Type C1 (NPC-1) is safe at 3 different dose levels and what effects it has on people who have this condition. NPC-1 is caused by a defect in a protein which is important for the transport of fatty substances like cholesterol out of cells. Without this protein, fats build up in the cells ultimately leading to organ damage. The way in whic...
The purpose of this research study is to evaluate MR imaging in subjects receiving doxorubicin chemotherapy to see if MR can detect heart damage as well as or better than MUGA scans. This research study is expected to enroll approximately 10 subjects over 12 months at the University of Miami / Miller School of Medicine.
Niemann-Pick disease, Type C is a rare genetic disorder characterized by a failing in intracellular cholesterol transport, inducing an accumulation of sphingolipids in the brain. Neurological signs are at the forefront of the disease. There are also psychiatric signs of psychotic kind among 28 to 45 % of patients according to studies, and a thirty cases were published. These signs can be concomitant with neurological signs or precede them. Is is likely that psychotic disorder...
This is a one year follow up survey study after a Fitbit® challenge study to determine if wearing a Fitbit® motivates residents to increase their physical activity. This study seeks to determine if residents continue to use the Fitbit® after one year.
Antiretroviral therapy (ART) has been a game changer in the context of HIV-epidemic. From 2005 to 2015, HIV-related deaths have fallen by 45% thanks to ART. However, ART's success heavily depends on HIV-positive individuals' high adherence to it. This includes clinic attendance for various purposes. It is necessary among HIV-positive individuals for their antiretroviral (ARV) pills pick up, monitoring of their treatment outcomes, and treatment of their opportunistic infections....
This is a prospective non-therapeutic observational study in NP-C patients. The aim is to characterize the individual patient disease progression profile through the historical and 6 months prospective evaluation of clinical, imaging, biological(biomarkers) and quality of life data. Patients will be offered enrollment into a Phase II/III study on arimoclomol at the end of the study.
The investigators are selecting sixty (60) with breast cancer diagnoses where the surgical treatment is indicated.Furthermore the investigators divided in two groups : 1) surgical treatment using regular electric scalpel ; 2) surgical treatment using argon plasma coagulation scalpel. Our primary goal is to measure the bleeding during the surgery using the weight of the surgical tissues used. Secondary we'll evaluate the immediate post operative outcomes, like infection, hematom...

It is estimated that 45-80 % of nursing home residents have substantial pain at any given time. Residents with impaired cognition have been found to report chronic pain more often, more frequent and more severe, compared to residents with normal cognition. Approximately 3/4 of permanent residents in nursing homes in Norway have developed dementia. The burden of dementia is often compounded by painful conditions. Despite over a decade of research on the subject, inadequate pain ...

To examine the effects of a music, imagery, and movement (MiM) intervention on emotional and cognitive functioning in residents living in a community-based adult long-term care facility. Hypothesis 1: Residents who participate in the MiM group will improve in emotional functioning, as compared to residents in the control group. Hypothesis 2: Residents who participate in the MiM group will improve in cognitive functioning, as compared to residents in the control group.
Femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery consists in nuclear lens fragmentation, followed by ultrasound phacoemulsification of nuclear lens, which is then removed. It can be assumed that fragmenting the nuclear lens in more pieces could facilitate the post-laser ultrasound phacoemulsification to extract the lens, with a lesser amount of ultrasonic energy. The decrease of ultrasonic energy delivered during cataract surgery is beneficial to the patient because it optim...
