The cohort identified through EMRs at chosen hospitals will then be linked to the national hea...
We have developed in vitro systems including primary epithelial cell cultures and explant cultures of bronchial tissues to study the interaction between the bronchial mucosa and allergens. This approach involves culturing bronchial biopsies under optimal conditions and stimulate them with allergens thus enabling us to perform a dynamic study without the need of performing several bronchoscopies and will allow the testing of unapproved substances, which could, otherwise, not be...
There is some evidence to suggest standard urine cultures may not be adequate in identifying patients with low grade urinary tract infections. Therefore, there are patients with symptoms of frequency and urgency, being misdiagnosed with overactive bladder due to negative urine cultures. If this is true, could extended cultures be used to identify the false negative patients?
The objective of this study is to determine utilisation patterns in patients receiving Angiox® in participating European centres. Additionally, through the collection of descriptive safety and outcomes data, this study will contribute to the Risk Management strategy for Europe
This study will examine prostate tumor tissue cultures to try to identify genetic abnormalities that contribute to the cause or progression of the disease. Patients with prostate cancer enrolled in the National Cancer Institute protocol 97-C-0147 (Collection of Serum and Tissue Samples from Patients with Biopsy-Proved or Suspected Malignant Disease) may be eligible for this study. Specimens for tissue culture for this study will be obtained from tumors surgically removed ...
The investigators objective is to test the combination directly on organotypic cultures of tumors from patients after their excision in the Department of Urology and Renal Transplantation of the University Hospital of Grenoble and to compare their efficacy with that of currently selected treatments in the clinic. The population targeted by the combination for use in clinical practice is patients with metastatic clear cell renal cell carcinoma. Current treatments for the...
This study is designed to compare the responses to an oral glucose challenge between people of European and Chinese heritage (essential participants in the European arm must have tow European parents and likewise for the Chinese participants).
Febrile neutropenia are microbiologically documented in only 30% of the cases, and almost exclusively by blood cultures. The reasons for this low documentation are likely multiple: (1) some of these fevers are of non-infectious origin. (2) The bacterial inoculum present in the blood may be low and consequently undetectable by conventional blood cultures. The primary objective of the study is to assess new blood culture procedures and technics, in order to improve the diagnosti...
This is an observational cohort study of 1000 consecutive patients on medical and surgical wards at the Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto who have a mid-stream urine culture ordered. When these cultures are ordered or received in the laboratory, a message is posted that the specimen will not be processed in the laboratory unless a call is received to say that the patient has local urinary symptoms. The goal is to establish whether not processing mid-stream urine cultures is safe.
The prevalence of asymptomatic bacteriuria in pregnancy has been reported in the range of 2-15%. Due to the severity of the complications related to asymptomatic bacteriuria in this patient population, the American College of OBGYN recommends routine screening of all pregnant women. Asymptomatic bacteriuria in a pregnant woman should be screened only using a clean-catch non contaminated urine sample. Screening for ABU using urine chemistries is not recommended due to the lac...
Induced pluripotent stem cells potentially may be useful in the future as an unlimited source of cells for transplantation. The major goal of the project is to develop human iPS cells from various types of cell cultures or lines from existing collections. The IPS cells will be developed for modeling diseases, for developing the technology that may eventually allow the use of IPS cells for transplantation therapy, and for basic research.
The investigators hypothesize that this study will show that sufficient lymphocyte stem cell can be harvested prior chemoradiation and be reinfused back after treatment, and at least 5 of the 10 patients (50%) will achieve an absolute increase of lymphocyte counts of 300 cells/mm^3 four weeks after stem cell reinfusion in high grade glioma patients.
Implementation of the initial specimen diversion technique, in which the first milliliter of the venipuncture sample is not injected into the culture bottle, led to a significant reduction in blood culture contamination rates. This technique is based on the assumption that the skin plug aspirated during venipuncture is a major source of contaminating bacteria. One such diversion method is aspirating the first blood volume into a blood collection tube. It has, however, been sugg...
Staphylococcus aureus is not only one of the first pathogens infecting the airways of cystic fibrosis (CF) patients, but also a highly prevalent microorganism (>60% of all CF patients; European and American CF registries; (4,25), which often persists for several years in the respiratory tract of CF patients. The purpose of this study is to dissect infection by S. aureus from colonization. Therefore, the following non-interventional prospective, longitudinal multicenter study w...
This is a prospective study comparing 4 groups: (1) non-smoking controls, (2) smokers without chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), (3) smokers with COPD, (4) severe asthma. Bronchial biopsy specimens from each subject will be obtained to produce air-liquid-interface cell cultures. These will then be used to make observations concerning cilia and mucus rheology. This is a first pilot study. We hypothesize that the largest group differences will be found fo...
Background: - Pulmonary nontuberculous mycobacterial infection is a respiratory infection that is sometimes difficult to diagnose. Proper diagnosis depends on accurate collection of respiratory secretions, but these secretions may be contaminated by bacteria present in the mouth at the time of collection. In addition, some individuals may have difficulty providing respiratory secretions, because the infection affects lung function and sputum production. By collecting new...
This pilot research trial studies the collection of blood samples in monitoring tumor specific mutations in patients with non-small cell lung cancer that has spread to other places in the body or cannot be removed by surgery. Collecting blood samples may help measure the changes in lung cancer, better learn methods to track cancer in the bloodstream, and improve cancer treatments.

The designed study follows up on the previous one by the international T-cell project (Bellei et al,, 2012) and its purpose is to verify whether a prospective collection of data would permit access to more accurate information permitting a better definition of prognosis and investigation of more adequate treatment strategies for these neoplasms. The analysis of patients distributed in all five macro regions of the country and a comparison among them will provide a real picture...
Bone samples from infected diabetic feet will be collected and tests will be performed for the diagnosis of causative bacteria. Samples will be processed by PCR multiplex tests and usual cultures for identification of causative bacteria and sensitivity to antibiotics. Results obtained by the two methods will be compared in terms of quickness and similarity of germ identification. Usual care strategy will not be modified since results of PCR multiplex tests will not be transmitt...
The purpose of this study is to assess the blood cultures' profitability in intensive care unit and create a validated prediction rule for extractioning in critical patients.
