Globally, the most common cause of anemia is thought to be iron deficiency anemia (IDA). This was assumed to be the major cause of anemia in Cambodia, because Cambodian diets, which consist mainly of rice, lack iron-rich animal food sources. However, our findings from a previous study in Cambodia (a Canadian government funded study investigating multiple interventions to improve food and nutrition security) showed that IDA is almost non-existent and challenges this assumption. ...
This study is to determine the prevalence and geographical distribution of antimalarial drug resistance-linked genetic mutations in clinical P. falciparum infections in Cambodia
Surgical site infections (SSI) constitute a significant health-economic and clinical challenge. The investigators conducted a cluster-randomized, cross-over study to compare the efficacy of plain soap and water (PSW), used ubiquitously across sub-Saharan Africa for surgical hand preparation, to alcohol-based hand rub (ABHR), with SSI rates as the main outcome measure. A total of 3133 patients undergoing clean and clean-contaminated surgery were included in the study and ...
This study aims to answer the question of what is the burden of lower respiratory disease (pneumonia) among children ages 1 month to 5 years of age in rural Cambodia. The primary objective will be to quantify the prevalence of severe pneumonia at Chenla Children's Healthcare, a hospital in the rural town of Kratie, Cambodia. This will involve a chart review of the medical records available at Chenla Children's Healthcare.
This study is a multi-centre, open-label randomised trial to assess the efficacy, safety and tolerability of the Triple ACT artemether-lumefantrine+amodiaquine (AL+AQ) compared to the ACT artemether-lumefantrine (AL) in uncomplicated falciparum malaria in Cambodia and Vietnam. The estimated total sample size is 600 patients from 2 sites in Cambodia and 2 sites in Vietnam. There are 2 treatment arms Arm 1: Artemether-lumefantrine for 3 days Arm 2: Artemether-lumefantrine for 3 d...
The principal aim of this project is to investigate reports of developing artemisinin resistance in Cambodia using an integrated in vivo - in vitro approach to examine recent alarming reports of treatment failures with advanced combination therapies along the Thai-Cambodian border, which could have major impact on the malaria situation in the affected areas as well as the rest of the malaria-endemic world.
It has now been demonstrated clearly that in Western Cambodia parasitological responses to artesunate and artemether containing treatment regimens for uncomplicated falciparum malaria are slower than elsewhere in the world. Median parasite clearance time (PCT) in patients treated with artesunate 4 mg/kg/day was 78 hours and with 2 mg/kg/day 82 hours, compared to 54 and 48 hours, respectively, in Western Thailand; at 72hours peripheral blood parasitaemia was still detectable in ...
The study will evaluate whether the blood concentrations of eletriptan administered using two test formulations of oral disintegrating tablets are comparable to those observed with the standard commercial tablet.
The principal objective of this research is the evaluation of the effect of mineralized water consumption upon evolution of LDL Cholesterol and triglycerides, compared to a low mineralized water consumption.
The primary purpose of this interventional, placebo controlled, crossover, double blind, basic science exploratory study is to investigate whether there is a difference in brain electrophysiological oscillatory activity in healthy adults before and after oral consumption of water containing very small bubbles of oxygen (electrokinetically modified water).
Drinking water is largely advocated for obesity prevention and management. Recent studies have suggested that water has a thermogenic effect, this has not been examined in children. In this study, we will measure the resting metabolic rate of 21 obese children before, and during drinking cold (4 degrees centigrade)water for up to 60 minutes.
In this study the investigators propose to assess the hemodynamic response to the ingestion of 16 fl oz of water. The investigators will test the hypothesis that water ingestion will increase the systemic vascular resistance.
Background: - The Ukrainian Research Center for Radiation Medicine and the U.S. National Institutes of Health have been studying cancer risks and outcomes in individuals who participated in the decontamination clean-up process following the Chornobyl nuclear accident. Some of these individuals were exposed to external radiation at various levels, as well as radioactive iodine that may have affected the thyroid and increased the risk of developing thyroid cancer. Because ...
The aim of the study is to evaluate the effectiveness in removing chemical exposure on hand, we compare removal efficiency of Di-(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate (DEHP) on hands by hand washing with soap and water vs. water only. In two three-day N-of-1 trials, residual DEHP was measured in a single female adult who washed exposed hands with soap-and-water or water-only. Subsequently, a crossover study was performed by randomly assigning another 28 subjects equally to wash with soap-and...
The aim of this research study is to determine by laboratory analyses the effects of drinking silicon-rich water on bone health. This will be determined from blood and urine samples from subjects who will be asked to drink 1 liter per day of either silicon-rich water or water without silicon for 12 weeks.
The Purpose of the GF Strong water protocol is to allow clients who have thin liquid dysphagia to drink water under certain specified conditions according to the rules of the water protocol. Water Protocols have been shown to improve client satisfaction, and hydration. We wish to assess this in a randomized, controlled fashion, and this is a pilot project to determine feasibility.
Background: Malaria is an illness caused by a parasite that enters people s bodies when a mosquito bites them. It can cause fevers, headaches, body aches, and weakness. If not treated, it can make some people very ill. Malaria can be cured. A mix of 2 drugs that has worked well in the past is not working as well in some parts of Cambodia. Researchers want to see if a mix of 3 drugs works better and is safe. Objectives: To see if a 3-drug mix can be used to treat ...
The investigators will review video-recordings of three randomized, controlled trials (NCT01535326, 01699399, and 01894191) comparing air insufflation, water immersion and water exchange during colonoscopy. These studies were all conducted at Buddhist Dalin Tzu Chi Hospital.
The purpose of this study is to find the best cleaning and collection methods to obtain a 'non-contaminated' clean catch mid-stream urine sample to diagnose suspected urinary tract infection (UTI).
Copeptin, a surrogate marker for vasopressin, has been found to be elevated in metabolic disorders including obesity and diabetes, which are disorders both associated with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), and therefore suggest a potential role for vasopressin in the pathogenesis of NAFLD. US population currently drinks on average 1-1.5L of water a day, which is less than recommended water intake (2.5L of water). Therefore, we wish to look at whether recommended water i...
There are worrying signs that parasitological responses to the artemisinin drugs for uncomplicated falciparum malaria are slower than elsewhere in the world.If responses to artesunate are poor it is essential to have characterised the blood concentration profile as well as the parasitological response to differentiate resistance from abnormal pharmacokinetics. The primary objective of the study is to assess the level of resistance to artemisinin derivatives in Western Ca...
The purpose of this study is to document the safety and effectiveness of high doses of liquids to clean the colon for colonoscopy in patients who had a previous colonoscopy with a poorly cleaned colon.
In Thailand, the proportion of P.vivax infection has now been increasing and is equal to Plasmodium falciparum since 1998. The incidence of P.vivax has recently been reported as 20 per 1000 population per year. Unlike Plasmodium falciparum, P.vivax infection rarely develops into complicated malaria and death is unusual. However, P.vivax has a dormant stage (the hypnozoite) that persists in the human liver and may cause relapse weeks, months, or even years later. Therefore, P.v...
Humans display a preference for salt although the reasons remain unclear. The aim was to examine the hypothesis that salt may enhance mood. The study compares the drinking of water with and without electrolytes (either dissolved in water or by capsule). Mood was rated over a period of 155 minutes
Household air pollution (HAP) is a top-priority public health problem in developing countries. According to the most recent comparative risk assessment, 3.5 million people die prematurely each year as a result of HAP exposures. While uncertainties remain regarding causal links between HAP exposures and health, the time is ripe for focused research into effective interventions. Limited past research has shown that the demand for clean cookstoves is low, and that households conti...
