Thyrotoxic periodic paralysis (TPP) is characterized by episodes of reversible hypokalemia and weakness in thyrotoxic patients. It is commonly found in males of Asian descent and is also seen in individuals having Native American or Hispanic ancestry. Therefore genetic etiology has been hypothesized. This study, we aim to find the susceptibility genes that associate with TPP. Both candidate genes approach and genome wide association study have been conducted.
OBJECTIVES: I. Assess the efficacy of dichlorphenamide in the treatment of episodic weakness attacks in patients with hyperkalemic periodic paralysis, paramyotonia congenita with periodic paralysis, and hypokalemic periodic paralysis.
The purpose of this study is to compare Dichlorphenamide with placebo (an inactive substance) for prevention of episodes and for improvement of strength in periodic paralysis. This study will also look at the long-term effects of Dichlorphenamide in periodic paralysis.
This is a randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled phase II clinical trial with a cross-over design to investigate the efficacy of bumetanide in patients with hypokalemic periodic paralysis (HypoPP). The aim is to assess the efficacy of bumetanide in reducing severity and duration of a focal attack of weakness in a hand muscle. Twelve participants will be recruited.
Vocal cord paralysis is a common cause of congenital stridor and airway obstruction. In this study we plan to identify the genetic locus of the genes in two extended families who suffer of the disease.
The purpose the study is to determine the genetic causes of specific voice disorders that run in families. Researchers are particularly interested in two conditions; 1. Spasmodic dysphonia 2. Vocal fold paralysis Familial vocal fold paralysis can be a life-threatening disorder that can cause difficulty with vocal fold movement for breathing and voice and sometimes for swallowing. Studies are ongoing at the NIH to better understand the pathophysiology and to relat...
Facial nerve paralysis is a disfiguring complication which occurs in 7-10 % of temporal bone fractures. The onset of paralysis may be immediate, delayed or undetermined, the latter of which often occurs in unconscious patients with accompanying life-threatening complications.About one fourth has complete paralysis.
The study aimed to study the correlation between periodic limb movement occurring during sleep and the different parameters of genetic generalized epilepsy
RATIONALE: Genetic studies may help in understanding the genetic processes involved in the development of some types of cancer. PURPOSE: Genetic trial to study the genes of patients who have an inherited urologic (genitourinary) malignancy (cancer).
Currently, physicians have several options in addressing the anatomic and physiologic sequela of facial paralysis. However, strategies to address the psychologic and coping ability for patients have not been investigated. The goal is to investigate the effect of mindfulness meditation on social functioning in patients with facial paralysis. This study will also explore whether increasing social functioning in patients with facial paralysis will improve overall quality of life....
Periodic leg movements during sleep is associated with microarousals and a stimulation of the sympathetic nervous system. The knowledge of this autonomic activation may help understanding the increase of cardiac risk observed in elderly. The aim of the study is to evaluate the relationship between periodic leg movements severity, age, gender, electromyographic power and heart rate response associated with periodic leg movements. Drug-free patients diagnosed with periodic leg mo...
The facial paralysis is a frequent disease causing important functionals swallowing dysfunctions. The purpose of our study was to evaluate the improvement of the swallowing disorders after surgery by lengthening temporalis myoplasty (LTM) in the facial paralysis. This prospective study has realised on the following of patients affected by facial paralysis treated by LTM. Self-administered questionnaires and clinics tests had realized to analyze three components oh the oral pha...
A retrospective and cross-sectional analysis of standard of care for facial paralysis involving the cross-face nerve graft in the past 20 years. - Imagery analysis - Questionnaires
RATIONALE: Genetic studies may help in understanding the genetic processes involved in the development of some types of cancer. PURPOSE: Genetic trial to study genes of patients and families who have Birt-Hogg-Dube syndrome to identify patients who are at risk of developing kidney cancer.
RATIONALE: Identifying genes that increase a person's susceptibility or resistance to hepatitis B virus infection may help the study of hepatitis. PURPOSE: This clinical trial is studying genetic susceptibility and genetic resistance to hepatitis B virus in the Chinese population.
The primary objective of this study is to evaluate safety and tolerability of ACZ885 in this extension study. This extension study offers the opportunity for patients who completed Epoch 4 of the preceding CACZ885N2301 study to continue to be treated with ACZ885 until approval in Japan of the drug in Periodic Fever Syndromes or until development of ACZ885 in Periodic Fever Syndromes is suspended.

Bilateral laryngeal reinnervation induces a rise in laryngeal resistance and speech alteration. The aim of this study is to propose laryngeal reinnervation by a phrenic nerve root to patients with bilateral laryngeal paralysis.
Thyroidectomy is a common surgical procedure in France. Recurrent paralysis is one of the main complications. Oral corticosteroid therapy are frequently used at a dosage of 1mg/kg for seven days, in case of recurrent paralysis to obtain remobilization as early as possible. The main objective is to evaluate the efficacy of oral corticosteroid therapy in remobilization of vocal cords at seven days in patients with unilateral recurrent paralysis after thyroidectomy.
RATIONALE: Studying samples of blood and tissue from patients with cancer and from healthy participants in the laboratory may help doctors identify and learn more about genetic markers related to cancer. PURPOSE: This clinical trial is studying genetic markers for esophageal cancer and stomach cancer in Chinese populations.
The goals of this study are to replicate previous findings of genetic predictors of response to clozapine and other antipsychotic drugs.
Facial nerve paralysis is due to inflammation around the facial nerve. Current treatment for facial nerve paralysis is a 10 day course of oral steroids (which will reduce the inflammation), with electrodiagnostic testing. There have been limited studies on the use of intratympanic steroid injection, in addition to oral steroid, in the recovery of facial nerve paralysis. There are indications that the use of intratympanic injections, in addition to the oral steroids, will speed ...
This study aims to assess consequences and causes of hemidiaphragmatic paralysis for ambulatory arthroscopic shoulder surgery in patients with BMI ≥ 30 kg/m².
The paralysis of the fourth cranial nerve (paralysis IV), commonly known as the superior oblique muscle (SO) paralysis, represents half of vertical strabismus. The diagnosis of SO paralysis and of its congenital or acquired etiology, are based on a range of clinical findings. The three main clinical diagnostic elements are the hypertropia in paralyzed side which increases in adducted position, the positivity of Bielschowsky head tilt test and the twisting of the eye fundus. The...
Inflammatory bowel disease(IBD) is a chronic inflammatory condition for gastrointestinal tract. Regarding its pathogenesis, there has been numerous studies to reveal the complex association between genetic and environmental factors. In Korea, the incidence of IBD is growing rapidly but genetic studies solely including patients with Korean descent were not sufficient enough. Therefore, we planned to conduct genetic and fecal microbial analysis for the 46 individuals ...
