Hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection can be treated, but therapy is usually lifelong and has side effects, so a cure for HBV is a critical endpoint. This study examines the key steps to HBV cure in the setting of HIV-HBV co-infection, where rates of development of antibodies against HBV after starting HBV treatment are higher than in people with HBV alone starting treatment. In Asia both HBV and HIV are common so this provides a unique opportunity to study HBV. We will investigate...

This is a 3-arm, multi-center, patient-randomized, field evaluation of the "Way to Cure" behavioral interventions on medication adherence in HCV.
Although combination antiretroviral therapy (cART) can significantly reduce morbidity and mortality, it still fails to eradicate HIV. Given the difficulty for eradication of HIV, functional cure is more likely to achieve the goal. In recent breakthrough scientific reports, there already existed several examples of HIV-infected cases achieving the status of functional cure only through early administration of cART in newborns or early infected cases. From Taiwan centers for dise...
Data from this clinical study will be used to assess if the treatment approach meets CDC criteria for becoming a recommended treatment (cure rate greater than 95 percent with a lower CI:95percent greater than 95 percent) or alternative treatment (cure rate greater than 95 percent with a lower CI95 percent greater than 90 percent) for uncomplicated gonococcal infection. An estimated cure rate of 0.98. A single-arm clinical study design, allowing for a 10 percent subject drop-out...
Primary Objective: - The primary objective of the study is to demonstrate the superiority of telithromycin over azithromycin and over cefuroxime axetil in the reduction of Streptococcus pneumoniae (Sp) strains resistant to beta-lactams or macrolides at the Test of Cure (TOC) visit in the sputum of patients with Sp detected at the start of the study (Visit 1). Secondary Objectives: The secondary objectives of the study are: - To de...
It is becoming clear that a combination of interventions will be desirable to achieve HIV cure. Therefore the investigators propose a pilot proof of concept study, using combination of a number of different interventions for eradicating residual plasma viremia and decreasing HIV reservoirs. The investigators hypothesize that, (i) antiretroviral intensification using Maraviroc, and/or dolutegravir with (ii) Dendritic Cell vaccination using autologous HIV, and (iii) purging inter...
This study is to Assess hypercalciuria between J1 of the cure and 1 J1 6 of the cure of adjuvant chemotherapy in patients receiving conventional adjuvant chemotherapy of breast cancer.
The main objective of the study is to evaluate whether the extended duration fidaxomicin therapy is superior to the standard vancomycin therapy in sustained clinical cure of CDI at 30 days after end of treatment (Day 40 or Day 55).
Low level laser therapy (LLLT) was shown to affect muscle performance and fatigue. The aim of this study is to investigated the effect of B-cure laser on muscle performance and recovery after intense exercise.
The purpose of this study is to asses whether probiotics Lactobacillus rhamnosus (GR-1) and reuteri (RC-14) are able to prevent diarrhea, delay the decline of the immune system and prevent and/or cure bacterial vaginosis among HIV patients.
Light curing cements used for laminate veneers may be not totally cured in certain areas, so dual cured resin cements may solve this problem yet the dual cured cements containing amines cause yellowish discoloration of the veneers after time. A new dual cured cement which is amine free is introduced so the investigators have to try it clinically using parallel groups in randomized clinical trial.
Previous studies addressing preoperative somatostatin analogs (SSA) treatment and subsequent surgical cure rates are conflicting, reporting a benefit, or no difference between groups. And most reported studies were rather small and were made in retrospect, we conducted a prospective, randomized study to investigate whether 4-month preoperative lanreotide treatment would improve the surgical cure rate of newly diagnosed acromegalic patients with macroadenomas. The investigators ...
The purpose of this study is to assess the satisfaction, the observance, the intolerance, the qualitative appreciation and the expectations of the patients related to the use of the cosmetic products ("Tendre Caresse au cold cream" body cream and "Crème de douche" face and body cleanser from Cosmétosource) during chemotherapy and post-treatment thermal cure
The purpose of this study is to determine the most appropriate radiation implant dose for palladium-103 monotherapy. Radiation dose is related to potential cure. From previously published studies, it appears that the prescribed radiation dose can be reduced by 14-20% without any difference in potential cure (in this study, the dose is being decreased 10%). Although most patients tolerate brachytherapy well, complications to appear to be related to radiation exposure to normal...
This will be an interventional safety and efficacy study of CELENT07 when used as a topical treatment of onychomycosis in the toenails (tinea unguium) of adults 18 years and older. This is randomized, double-blind, parallel design, placebo and active controlled study in patients with mild to moderate toenail distal lateral subungual onychomycosis (DLSO) (n=120). Subjects will be randomized (1:1:1) to receive CELENXT07, placebo of CELENXT07 or PENLAC®, daily for 52 weeks. Effic...
There is a necessity for the development of new malaria drugs. Some antibiotics are also effective against malaria parasites. Fosmidomycin is an antibiotic that has been shown to be effective against malaria, although it cannot achieve a total cure in all patients. Previous small studies have shown that in combination with clindamycin, an commonly used antibiotic, it is highly effective and safe when given for three days, leading to a total cure in most patients. The current st...
The Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) has been recently introduced with success in the management of the pain associated to this condition. This double blind placebo controlled clinical trial analyzes a new home LLLT protocol to verify whether it was possible to avoid to the repeated presence at dental chair required by traditional LLLT protocols.
INTRODUCTION: Vascular ulcers are an important pathology in the daily medical practice in all the assistance levels, and they have big repercussion referring to individual, social and labour levels, supposing a big consumption of human and material resources.The cure with autologous platelet rich plasma (autologous PRP) has demonstrated in different studies a decrease in the cicatrization time comparing to conventional methods in hospital levels, which becomes interesting contr...
The purpose of this study is to compare successful rates of cure of abscesses less than 5 cm with antibiotic versus non-antibiotic treatment after incision and drainage. We will also compare successful rates of cure and time to healing with IV antibiotics and 23-hour observation unit stay versus hospitalization with IV antibiotics for abscesses greater than 5 cm but less than 10 cm in pediatric patients.
The effects of the ECT in schizophrenia ultra-resistant were studied in short times (4-6 months in most studies with follow-up). The literature identified a high relapse rate of 32% in the weeks to months after ECT discontinuation. The use of the ECT in the prevention of the relapse is partially known. In an empirical way, experts recommend protocols of prevention of the relapse going from 6 to 12 months. Nevertheless, the profit of a long cure (12 months) compared with a short...
Current treatments for limited stage small cell lung cancer have poor cure rates. The addition of chest radiation to chemotherapy improves cure rates, but these cancers still come back in the chest 30-50% of the time. Two factors which can improve control and cure rates for this cancer are increasing the chest radiation dose and minimizing the overall time it takes to complete radiation treatments. One method to achieve both of these goals is to give more radiation each day....
HIV infection can be efficiently controlled by antiretroviral therapy (ART), with in 2013 nearly 85 % of patients having a suppressed viremia, but HIV cannot, however, be eradicated with ART alone . Overall, HIV has moved from a fatal to a chronic disease provided treatment is maintained life-long. Despite major improvement in antiretroviral drugs in terms of efficacy, tolerability and simplicity, life-long therapy is still associated with drug toxicity. Several drugs or dru...
The global prevalence of diabetes is on the rise and with it increase in prevalence of diabetic foot ulcers (DFU). These recalcitrant wounds are difficult to manage and pose a heavy economic burden. Photobiomodulation (low level laser) is used for acceleration of wound healing. The current study is designed to evaluate the effectiveness of B-cure laser, a home-use low-level laser device, for acceleration of diabetic foot ulcer healing over standard treatment.
