To continue the work of the Collaborative Studies Coordinating Center (CSCC) on international studies in cardiopulmonary disease epidemiology. The work was being performed under bilateral agreements that the NHLBI had entered into with Russia, The People's Republic of China and Pakistan. The contract provided nutritional, epidemiologic and biostatistical services in support of these studies.
The prevalence and incidence of diabetes has been reported to vary among populations.Immigrants groups as that have undergone significant life-style changes tend to develop diabetes within a short time. The aim of the study is to assess the prevalence of diabetes mellitus in Ethiopian population ,15-20 years after immigration in Israel.
To study the impact of genetic and environmental factors on high-level cognition associated neural circuits among healthy young Chinese Han subjects.
To examine hypotheses concerning the relationships between nutrient intake (in particular, specific fatty acids, antioxidant nutrients, and B vitamins), dietary patterns, plasma lipoproteins, and heart disease endpoints in the population-based Framingham Offspring Studies.
To study further the association between blood pressure mortality among those who participated in both the Hypertension Detection and Follow-up Program (HDFP) screen and the East Boston Established Populations for Epidemiologic Studies in the Elderly (EPESE) study.
To conduct epidemiologic surveys of the distribution, causes, and consequences of the dyslipoproteinemias. The Population Studies include the Prevalence Study, the Family Study, and the Mortality Follow-up Study and shared the same general population base.
After exposure to an active case of tuberculosis (TB), close contacts may be infected. They are then considered as having latent tuberculosis infection (LTBI). Detecting LTBI is the main goal of contact tracing procedures after exposure to TB. Until recently, the only test available for detecting LTBI was the tuberculin skin test (TST). More recent tests are now available (Interferon-gamma release assays: IGRA), which are more specific and sensitive than the TST. This study com...
The purpose of this multi-center event-driven study in participants with anemia associated with chronic kidney disease (CKD) to evaluate the safety and efficacy of daprodustat.
BACKGROUND: - Patients receiving care at the NIH Clinical Center are required to be enrolled in a clinical protocol - Following participation in a treatment protocol, it may be in the best interest of the patient to continue to be followed at the Clinical Center - The NCI Surgery Branch conducts clinical trials utilizing gene transfer. The current FDA requirements for long term follow up are up to fifteen years for some products. As t...
The purpose of this multi-center event-driven study in non-dialysis (ND) participants with anemia associated with chronic kidney disease (CKD) is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of daprodustat compared to darbepoetin alfa.
The doctors in the Bone Marrow Transplant Service at the Indiana University Cancer Center are working to better understand how the immune cells that cause graft-versus-host disease (a major complication of stem cell transplantation in which the donor immune cells attack the patient's organs) can be selectively removed from the graft, leaving other immune cells that fight infections.
Studies show that sleep apnea increases the risk of cardiovascular disease and is associated with obesity. However, it is unclear how sleep apnea affects fat tissue. Studies have shown that fat tissue is likely involved in developing cardiovascular disease. The purpose of this study is to see how sleep apnea changes fat tissue.
Study of Clinical, Biological Characteristics and Quality of Life of Patients With Hereditary or Acquired Non Drug-induced Bradykinin-mediated Angioedema, Monitored in Besançon's Partner Site Reference Center for Studies of Kinin-mediated Angioedema (CRE
This study aims to describe quality of life in hereditary or acquired non drug-related bradykinin-mediated angioedema patients, using validated questionnaires
B-CLL is the most prevalent leukemia in the Western hemisphere, accounting for ~25% of all leukemia's (1). This disease occurs virtually exclusively in the aging population, with the median age of diagnosis ranging between the mid 60s and the early 70s. Indeed, its occurrence before the age of 50 is quite unusual. This increase in occurrence with age is not unique to B-CLL; rather, it is characteristic several B cell lymphoproliferative disorders (e.g., non-Hodgkin's lymphom...
Sickle cell disease (SCD) is a worldwide distributed hereditary red cell disorder, which affects approximately 75,000 individuals in the United States and almost 20,000- 25,000 subjects in Europe, this latter mainly related to the immigration fluxes from endemic areas such as Sub-Saharian Africa to European countries. Studies of global burden disease have pointed out the invalidating impact of SCD on patient quality of life. This requires the development of new therapeutic opti...
Interstitial cystitis (also called painful bladder syndrome, or chronic pelvic pain syndrome) is a common condition with no known cure. It is estimated that every 15 seconds, a person in the USA is diagnosed with interstitial cystitis. Studies have suggested that the condition may be genetic and passed down (or inherited) from one generation to the next. In this study we are comparing different families' samples and medical information to determine which genetic factors may pl...
Evaluation of functionnal improvement after spa therapy in Fontcaude center, for knee osteoarthrtis Background. Knee osteoarthritis is the first indication of spa therapy in rheumatology. This therapeutic represents a non parharmacological treatment and is recommended by OARSI. In order to obtain agreement for spa therapy, the center Fontcaude, needs to show clinical improvement for patients, as demonstrated in the Thermarthrose study. This center is near Montpellier and...
Studies have demonstrated that brief (5-10 min a day) passive range-of-motion exercise is beneficial for bone development in very low birth weight (VLBW) preterm infants. However, the optimal duration and frequency of exercise for bone development in preterm infants is yet unknown. The effect of exercise on the immune system was widely studied in adult and children. Exercise induces increase in IL-6, IL-10, and IL1ra. In adult even 10 minutes of flexion and extension of...
Our goals for this study involve using intravenous lidocaine as it is normally used in the Stanford Pain Management Center to assess the effect of intravenous lidocaine on chronic pain. Studies have been done determining the efficacy of intravenous lidocaine for treating pain but little research has been done to determine the effects of an intravenous lidocaine infusion on the different components of the pain experience. Our study will incorporate psychophysical and behavioral ...
