Otitis media is one of the most common infections among children and is a complication in about 30% of common colds. The most common complication of acute otitis media is otitis media with effusion. Some studies have reported the effects of montelukast and mometasone nasal spray in treatment of otitis media with effusion. However, current information is inadequate in this issue. The aim of this study was to compare the effectiveness of montelukast and mometasone nasal spray in ...
This randomized clinical trial studies how well social-media intervention works in reducing indoor tanning in high-risk indoor tanners. Social-media intervention delivered via Facebook may help to promote healthy behaviors, positive body image, and to understand young women's perception of a social media campaign.
This research will test the effect of mass media or mass media plus a clinic based education program will improve appropriate aspirin use for cardiovascular disease prevention. It is a group randomized design of 24 geographic areas in Minnesota with adjacent states serving as controls.
The goal of this study is to look at the effect of pneumococcal conjugate vaccines (PCV) on physician-diagnosed otitis media (OM) and acute otitis media (AOM) incidence in Swedish children by collecting and analyzing patient level observational data already available in existing regional and national databases.
The aim of this non-interventional study is to compare the blastulation rate per fertilized oocyte in two different single step culture media commercially available (GEMS and Irvine culture media).
Social media provides frequent interaction with online social networks, increasing exposure to peer influences, which could affect alcohol use in negative or positive ways. The proposed study will recruit adolescents and emerging adults using social media ads, and conduct online screening, enrolling 850 risky drinkers in a randomized controlled trial comparing three conditions: 8-week Social Media Intervention + Incentives, 8-week Social Media Intervention Only, and an e-news a...
Embryonic aneuploidy is the underlying etiology for the majority of failed implantation and miscarriage. Preimplantation genetic screening (PGS) with transfer of a euploid embryo has been advocated as a strategy for increasing live birth rates with a single embryo transfer. Culturing embryos to the blastocyst stage for trophectoderm biopsy is a requirement for PGS. Several commercially-available single-step embryonic culture media with varying composition have been established ...
Acute otitis media is one of the most common diseases of childhood and is one of the major causes of hearing loss in children. Despite the availability of effective antibiotic therapy for otitis media, treatment failures, persistent effusions, and recurrences are common. This Phase III outpatient study aims to test whether adjuvant therapy (an antihistamine or a corticosteroid), in addition to antibiotic therapy, improves the acute and long-term outcomes of patients with acute ...
The purpose of this study is to assess the effectiveness of Prevnar 13 against pneumococcal acute otitis media.
This Phase II STTR will evaluate an interactive, self-paced, e-learning media literacy intervention, REAL media, to prevent youth substance use among youth in the 4-H organization. Participating 4-H clubs will be randomly assigned to use the curriculum or continue current practices with the option for delivery at the end of the study. 4-H members (ages 13-15) will complete a pretest, immediate posttest and follow-up posttests at 3 and 9 months to assess effects.
It is well known that X-ray contrast media can affect kidney function in some patients, especially when administered intra-arterially, and patients who already suffer from reduced kidney function and diabetes mellitus may be at increased risk. It is widely accepted to use low-osmolar or iso-osmolar contrast media, especially in patients at risk for contrast media-induced nephropathy. However, little is known about the intravenous use of X-ray contrast media in risk patients, su...
The primary objective of the proposed study is to determine the effectiveness and safety of orally administered viscous-adherent xylitol syrup given in a dose of five grams three times daily for 12 weeks in reducing the incidence of clinically-diagnosed acute otitis media (ear infection) in children with a history of recurrent acute otitis media.
This study will evaluate the efficacy of shared decision making in treatment of Acute Otitis Media in the Emergency Department setting.
To compare the effectiveness of single step culture media and continuous uninterrupted culture media on blastulation rate
The purpose of this study is to determine if a commercially available homeopathic ear drop preparation is effective in reducing symptoms in children 6 months - 11 years old with acute otitis media. A total of 120 study patients with otitis media will be randomized to receive homeopathic ear drops, or no ear drops, in addition to receiving standard care. It is postulated that children using the ear drops will have more rapid resolution of symptoms and need fewer antibiotics th...
There have been few studies of small media interventions to promote colorectal cancer screening among Chinese Americans. Based on the results of strong preliminary studies on the promotion of colorectal cancer screening among Asian American populations, this community-academic research team propose to develop a culturally and linguistically appropriate traditional small media print brochure and a novel small media electronic audio-visual application accessible through mobile ap...
The purpose of this study is to see if it is practical to use social media-based and traditional online weight loss intervention components among low socioeconomic status participants using the Facebook social media (SM) and Fitbit self-monitoring platforms. Also, the study will test the effectiveness of recruiting participants via social media and at community events and locations. The results of this study will be used to inform future research studies.
The purpose of the study is to study the clinicopathologic behaviour of the 3 dangerous types of chronic otitis media that are prone for complications. In which type are the complications more common? Which type gives rise to more hearing loss? How does the disease process in the 3 types evolve? should the 3 types of otitis media be managed differently?
In Phase I, the REAL media Plus prototype will be developed and a usability test conducted among students and teachers. In Phase II a group randomized trial will be conducted among 27 high schools to evaluate the effects of REAL media Plus on smoking and vaping.
Describe the patient population and bacterial microbiology of pediatric patients presenting with spontaneous draining acute otitis media
In this research, the two media used are Global medium and SSM medium with serum), which are routinely used in the reproduction biology unit. This study simply consists in setting up a methodology to compare these to media. The only constraint placed on patients is to accept randomization for the type of medium used.
Chronic suppurative otitis media (CSOM) can be particularly difficult to treat as a number of patients do not respond to routine antibiotic or surgical treatments. The current treatment involves administering combination antibiotic anti-inflammatory ear drops such as Ciprodex (ciprofloxacin 0.3% / dexamethasone 0.1%). Although most patients experience a relief of symptoms, a fraction of patients remain refractory to treatment. Recent findings suggest that the addition of N-acet...
