Interpretation of Health News Items Reporting Results of Randomized Controlled Trials With or Without Spin by English-speaking Patients

The main objective of this study is to compare the interpretation of health news items reporting results of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) with or without spin (i.e., distortion of research results). The news items which reported those studies evaluating the treatment effect, having highest number of spin in the headline and text and received high online public attention will be selected. Spin will be deleted and will rewrite the news items without spin. This sample of new...

The Effect in Wedge Resection and IVb/V Resection of the Liver for Gallbladder Cancer

The extent of hepatic resection for gallbladder cancer can be done from a wedge resection to 4b/5 bisegmentectomy. This study aims to compare the recurrence rates and survival rates between wedge resection group and bisegmentectomy group. Patients with T2 or T3 gallbladder cancer on preoperative CT exam or patients who were pathologically diagnosed as T2 or T3 gallbladder cancer after initial simple cholecystectomy were enrolled. All patients are randomly assigned to wedge rese...

Doctors' Understanding of Survival Statistics

The probably most commonly used measure for expressing the pay-offs of early detection and treatment are survival rates. Yet, over time and groups this metric comes with several biases and thus, is not reliable for judging such benefits. Epidemiologists recommend using reduction of disease-specific mortality rates instead, which is unbiased. The purpose of the study is to investigate how primary care physicians understand and use different survival measures for determining the ...

TRANSFORM-HF: ToRsemide compArisoN With furoSemide FORManagement of Heart Failure

TRANSFORM-HF is a large-scale, pragmatic, randomized, unblinded clinical effectiveness study comparing torsemide versus furosemide as treatment for heart failure. Approximately 6,000 patients with heart failure will be enrolled. The primary objective of the TRANSFORM-HF study is to compare the treatment strategy of torsemide versus furosemide on clinical outcomes over 12 months in patients with heart failure who are hospitalized.

Service Development: Assessing Non-Attendance Rates in Outpatient Clinics

Many studies have shown a high non-attendance rate in hospital outpatient clinics. The investigators have found a non-attendance rate of 25% in their asthma clinics and would like to investigate whether a reminder phone call will improve attendance rates. Patients will be randomised into two groups; one group will receive a reminder phone call one week prior to their hospital consultation and the other group will be managed in the standard manner (i.e. no reminder of any sort...

Effect of Brief-tele Support on Attendance at Physiotherapy Sessions

Patients on the waiting list for physiotherapy treatment for pelvic floor dysfunction will be randomly divided into three groups: - a group that gets a telephone call before their invitation letter is sent. - a group that gets a telephone call after their invitation letter is sent. - a group that does not receive a telephone call. The phone call is a brief 5-10 minute call, which will be semi-structured. It will remind the patient of their appointment time, i...

A Trial of Pulse Dyed Laser (Chromogenex Regenlite Transform) in the Treatment of Inflammatory Acne Vulgaris

A Randomized, Blinded, Single-Centered, Placebo-Controlled Trial of Pulse Dyed Laser (Chromogenex Regenlite Transform) in the Treatment of Inflammatory Acne Vulgaris

Study of Oxaliplatin and Taxotere in Prostate Cancer

The primary objective for this study is to evaluate PSA response rates (response will be defined as a > 50% reduction in PSA levels) in men who have failed primary chemotherapy. The secondary objectives are to compare progression free survival, disease free survival, overall survival, and toxicity (tolerance/safety).

The DANTE Trial. A Randomized Study on Lung Cancer Screening With Low-Dose Spiral Computed Tomography

High survival rates have been reported for screen-detected Stage I lung cancer patients, but there are concerns about the potential biases of uncontrolled studies. DANTE is a prospective randomized controlled trial exploring the effects of screening with LDCT on lung-cancer-specific mortality, and on the prevalence and incidence rates of lung cancer, stage distribution and resectability rates in a selected high-risk population. The prevalence of a set of biomarkers in sputum an...

Follow-Up Study of Kidney Cancer Patients

Background: In Central Europe, mortality rates for kidney cancers are higher and survival rates are lower than in the United States and Western Europe overall. The Central and Eastern European Renal Cancer Case-Control Study (CEERCC), completed in 2002, offers an opportunity to identify determinants that predict 5-year survival among kidney cancer patients. Objectives: To assess disease recurrence and progression among former participants in the CEERCC. T...

Effects of Nursing Rounds on Patients Fall Rates

The purpose of this study is to determine the effects of hourly rounding on patient falls, patient satisfaction, and patient call light usage. This is a replication of research which determined that hourly rounds conducted by nursing personnel decreased patient falls and call light usage and increased patient satisfaction. The study design is quasi- experimental. One unit will be used as its own control (4S). On this unit, hourly nursing rounds will be implemented by Registered...

Curosurf and Survanta Treatment(CAST)of RDS in Very Premature Infants

Approval of surfactant by the FDA in 1989 for the treatment of Respiratory Distress Syndrome (RDS) in premature infants greatly improved survival rates. Newer surfactants approved by the FDA were more concentrated and had a more rapid onset of action. The overall efficacy of newer surfactants appeared similar until in 2004, Ramanathan and colleagues suggested that a double dose of Curosurf improved survival in infants 25-32 weeks gestational age, compared to infants treated wit...

The Development of Human Immunologic Assays Specific to Folate Receptor Antigen

Ovarian cancer has the highest mortality rate of gynecologic malignancies and the overall 5-year survival rate of ovarian cancer is only 20-30%. Additionally, the incidence of ovarian cancer has increased in recent years in Taiwan. Ovarian cancer is indeed a disease that should be respected, however, there was very little research work focusing on it in Taiwan. Patients with ovarian cancer who have stage I disease (localized to ovaries) after optimal surgical staging do not nee...

Evaluating an Intervention to Increase Use of Call Centre Support for Self-managed Medical Abortion

Self-management of medical abortion (MA) pills purchased from pharmacies is considered to be one of the reasons behind falling morbidity and mortality from unsafe abortion in recent years. While pharmacy workers commonly sell MA medications over the counter, they have inadequate knowledge about how women should take the medications and their potential complications, and do not offer adequate information and counselling to women buying the drugs. This study aims to evaluate if a...

A Study of Paclitaxel Plus Bevacizumab in Patients With Chemosensitive Relapsed Small Cell Lung Cancer

Improvements in therapy for relapsed SCLC are much needed. Paclitaxel has been previously tested and found to have significant single agent activity in relapsed SCLC, including in refractory patients. Angiogenesis plays an important role in SCLC, increased VEGF levels are associated with worse outcomes. Bevacizumab, a monoclonal antibody to VEGF, increase response rates and survival when combined with chemotherapy agents compared with the chemotherapy agent alone in NSCLC, b...

Post-transplant Cancer Incidence and Survival in Patients With or Without Pre-transplant Cancer

Patients with previous malignancies have increasingly been accepted for renal transplantation. However, post-transplant malignancy risk and survival rates of these patients are unknown. Our aim was to assess if previous malignancies pose an unnecessarily high risk of post-transplant malignant tumours and if the organs as a resource are too limited for investment in this patient group.
